Suspicion Indicators Recognition & Assessment (SIRA) Training:  The SIRA™ system utilizes behavior detection and security interviewing techniques developed by the Israeli Security Agency (ISA) to allow security and law enforcement professionals to identify high-risk individuals—such as terrorists, active shooters, or violent criminals—before an incident occurs.  This training will help to enhance security and law enforcement agencies’ ability to prevent violent attacks.

Massachusetts General Laws- Avoiding Legal Pitfalls in Healthcare Security: Law enforcement exceptions to HIPAA, EMTALA violations, new and emerging laws, and other hot legal topics related to healthcare security will be covered during this session by legal expert John Scheft, JD.

Construction Panel- Getting Security In On The Ground Floor of Project Planning: Whether your hospital is renovating an area, constructing a new unit, or even a new building, it is vitally important that security is included in the planning process from day one.  This multidisciplinary panel will explore not only how to get a seat at the planning table, but how to negotiate the planning process from the perspective of practitioners in the field.  Key considerations on security for new and renovated spaces will also be discussed.
