External Events: Training and Simulation to Mitigate Risk

Every so often you come across a company or technology that is worthy of consideration for your enterprise. With hundreds of vendors products in several categories of Operational Risk, the Reality Response Division of AIS is one for your training and simulation portfolio.

The risk of loss from external events is a growing emphasis by many OPS Risk Officers. Preparedness is a key strategy to mitigating hazards and minimizing the loss of property and life. Imagine for a moment that you have a complete model of your facility, building or mall. A virtual model. One that you can use to train employees, staff and other suppliers about the idiosyncratic nature of your evacuation procedures or shelter-in-place locations. Not only is this method of training smart, it is cost effective and allows for participant interaction directly with the model and the procedures.

Real-time training with people in one room or multiple locations it does not matter. The participants can be exercised without exposure to potentiall hazardous situations until they are ready for a complete and full test of the simulation with a live scenario. The other applications include your physical security teams.

In today's uncertain world, security forces are asked to combat a wide variety of public safety threats - local street crime, terrorist attacks, and international conflicts occur with alarming frequency. At AIS, we understand these threats and have developed an extensive offering of training programs to enhance the performance of security forces on the front lines.
