Upcoming Webinars and Podcasts:
Hostile Surveillance Detection for Critical Infrastructure, 11/19/2019, 1 p.m.
Please email Bob Chaffee by 11/18/19 if you are interested.
We know that ISIS has been operating in all 50 U.S. States and many other countries. We also know that terrorist organizations have a planning cycle which includes conducting hostile surveillance for weeks, months and even years prior to an attack. This seminar will inform participants on the terrorist planning cycle, what hostile surveillants look for, how hostile surveillance is conducted and what preventive security counter measures can be taken to identify hostile surveillance and prevent attacks. Email Bob Chaffee for more information.
Situational Awareness, 12/5/19, 1 p.m.
Please email Bob Chaffee by 12/4/19 if you are interested.
Situational awareness is more than see something, say something. Situational Awareness requires observation (seeing something), but it also requires an interpretation of what has been observed. This interpretation can then allow for prediction of potential outcomes. The better the observer’s expertise on what has been observed, the more effective the interpretation and prediction. Email Bob Chaffee for more information.
State of Research podcast: Listen to CSU’s new Research Safety Culture Coordinator, Anthony Appleton, PhD, discuss his work in research safety culture.
Who should attend emergency readiness trainings: All employees are encouraged to attend our emergency readiness classes and webinars, especially those who may be called on to take part in drills and exercises that help us prepare for “the real thing.” While Introduction to the Building Proctor’s Role and Ready Colorado State are required for proctors, all of these classes are recommended for all employees who may be impacted by an emergency at work or at home. These trainings are coordinated and often led by Bob Chaffee, along with his team of professionals from a variety of departments at CSU.
