Such as shareholder and corporate board meetings, product road shows, sports competitions, major sponsorships, political conventions, and international business conferences – present an enormous challenge for security professionals responsible for dignitary safety, event security, traffic control, crowd management, and parking impact. Security measures for high visibility events also require collaboration among many private companies and federal, state and local agencies, and they can require planning more than a year in advance of the event. Considering the enormous potential risks facing organizations planning large events in the current political climate, security and event management professionals need to incorporate risk assessment into their planning. They need to take in account any potential controversy surrounding the event or the people involved, and then formulate proactive approaches to protecting assets and attendees.
