Active Shooter Security Consultant Services

CIS security consultants are recognized worldwide for their expertise in assessing and improving facility readiness for active shooter violence.

CIS security consultants have assisted clients around the world in assessing and improving facility readiness for active shooter violence.

Robust risk management programs integrate a number of approaches to mitigate risks of mass homicide. Issues such as workplace violence prevention policies, threat assessment and management, suspicious activity recognition, and positive workforce culture all contribute to reducing the probability of mass homicide in workplace settings.

However, if measures employed to prevent attacks are unsuccessful or an attacker targets the facility in a manner that evades our proactive influence, physical security and emergency preparedness become the most critical lines of defense influencing the overall consequences of the event.
