Broadening Security Concerns in Today's Workplace

12:00 pm to 1:00 pm Speaker Presentation

Presented by Jeff McKissack

Physical, data and reputational risks will be the three main topics of this presentation as we look at those dynamics that can put people in the emergency room and their employers in either the courtroom and/or the newsroom. Often today, what happens in the ER affects HR just as what happens in the PD can affect PR.

What are the hot buttons related to these three main areas, what are strategies that can help those in HR mitigate such risks, and what are the suggested practices related to documentation of the same to avoid potential claims of negligence against you or your company? These all will be addressed as we all seek to proactively create more safe and secure workplaces today for us, our people, and our patrons.

Jeff McKissack

Jeff McKissack is a noted authority on risk and reputation management having addressed these topics over the past 35 years and to over 350,000 in live audiences, millions more via radio and television interviews.

But when asked, Jeff best sums up his message and mission by saying, "my goal is to help you spot trouble 'before' trouble spots you," and in today's world, that is a message beneficial to us all, both personally and professionally.
