Every business has (or should have) a Business Continuity Plan that includes annual Crisis Management Team table top exercises. Additionally, most semiconductor and high tech companies fall under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program and are required to conduct security training, exercises, and drills. This presentation will review the planning, preparation, local police department coordination and learnings from a recent Crisis Management Team table top exercise having the scenario of an active shooter inside the building during a Board of Directors meeting.
