In an increasingly complex world, creating safe environments requires planning with intention, nuance, and a multidisciplinary
approach. Physical security is most seamless when integrated into built environments long before they
are constructed, but elements can also be effectively integrated into existing spaces. Learn about risk assessment,
varied strategies, multi-disciplinary designs, and effective questions to ask to ensure that places and spaces
are beautiful and functional--but also inherently secure. Interactive case studies will be provided and audience
participation will assist in framing a typical and holistic planning process. Effective approaches will be discussed
from the perspective of a professional planner and urban designer, as well as a physical security specialist.
