Institute For Cybersecurity
Cybercrime now permeates all criminal activity, whether the actor is a few miles or thousands of miles away. Victims are not only attacked from those who are outside of our nation’s borders, but also from within prison walls. With little to no computer knowledge, inmates are now continuing their criminal activity.
Law enforcement, as an ever constant evolving profession, must address the new way crimes are being committed by actors around the world, while maintaining the trust and confidence of those whom they are sworn to protect. In response, the National Sheriffs’ Association Global Center for Public Safety has created the Institute for Cybersecurity.
School Based Threat, Risk and Vulnerability Assessment Training
The “School Based Threat, Risk and Vulnerability Assessment” (SBTRVA) Training was developed to assist campus security, school administration, staff and employees, responders from all emergency response disciplines including; Law Enforcement; Fire Service, Emergency Medical, Emergency Management, and the private sector, to understand and complete threat, risk, and vulnerability assessments of schools and use the information gathered in the assessments to ensure that their schools are safe and secure.
Officer Survival for Worst-Case Scenario
For the past several years we have witnessed a growing number of law enforcement officers being killed and assassinated. Some law enforcement training may not be sufficient to prepare officers for these deadly encounters.
This course was designed to prepare law enforcement officers to survive deadly encounters while on duty, including traffic stops, domestic incidents, and even confrontations while off duty.
Operations Based Threat, Risk, and Vulnerability Assessment Training
The “Operations Based Threat, Risk, and Vulnerability Assessment” (OpBTRVA) is a comprehensive assessment that defines a community, evaluates a community’s strengths and weaknesses, identifies critical infrastructure and key resources, identifies the threats to the community from an all hazard perspective, identifies and prioritizes Critical Infrastructure / Key Resources (CI/KR) and provides a comprehensive vulnerability assessment.
