The Threat Within
School Safety & Security Audiocast - On Demand


You can’t lock out a threat that’s already inside your school. However, you can prepare and train. Traditional security models focus on hardening schools, but behavior pattern recognition can potentially stop threats before they occur. And, if the unthinkable happens, effective training will help you act quickly and decisively.

For this School Safety and Security Audiocast, Brotherhood Mutual talks with security expert Vaughn Baker, president of Strategos International. Gather your safety and security team or send them the link to sign up for this free 50 minute audiocast.

Audiocast Highlights

Lesson 1: Learn about the deadly consequences of normalcy bias, when your brain rationalizes away the threat, which affects your ability to respond to the crisis.

Lesson 2: Hear how reactions of normalcy bias, disbelief, denial, panic, and helplessness can be replaced with crisis acceptance, awareness, recall of tasks and training, and urgent response. 

Lesson 3: How to use a non-linear response model that focuses on making the decision to either Lock Out or Take Out or Get Out based on your location in relation to the threat and environment you find yourself. Also knows as a 3 Out Assessment.

Lesson 4: Learn about the motivations behind ideological and traditional attackers. Hear about the 16 risk behavior indicators and how training can help your faculty and staff recognize a student may be struggling. Intervention is key to preventing an attack.

Lesson 5: Practical takeaways for schools to implement to enhance their safety and security measures. These key practices often begin with changing processes.
