Home Defense: Why Physical Security Is the Foundation of a Successful Strategy

Presenter - Michael Betten

A successful home defense strategy involves a multifaceted approach incorporating several disciplines. But of all the components necessary to implement a sound defense, addressing the physical security of your residence is paramount. It is the first line of defense and affords the resident the best chance to respond appropriately to a threat. Many home defense theories have never been tested or thoroughly vetted and only generate revenue for the vendor at the expense of the buyer. Participants will be introduced to proven and tested security fundamentals based on research and testing by a group of dedicated private/public sector professionals.
