An increase in drones flown by clueless, careless, and criminal pilots requires organizations across industries to look beyond their typical physical security controls and evaluate drone detection technology to protect people and property.
While a drone detection system that consistently and accurately locates both drone and pilot early is the foundation of an effective drone security program for many organizations, it is equally important to fully explore objectives and desired outcomes before technology deployment for the best result. Objectives may vary by facility, region, relationship with local law enforcement, and other factors. Priorities, tactics, and response protocols for pilot/controller apprehension also will drive how technology should be configured and deployed.
In this airspace security webinar series you will hear from subject matter experts on three critical areas to consider before deploying a drone detection system: 1) Risk Assessment and Response Planning, 2) Systems Integration, and 3) Training and Operations.

Drone Threat Risk Management Strategy and Response Planning
Speaker: Adam Schenkel, Specialist Master – Deloitte US Drone Services
Each organization maintains a unique drone threat profile and must also understand the drone detection/mitigation legal and regulatory environment.
Drone threats require a proactive risk management approach in which key stakeholders identify and assess their threat level and then evaluate/procure drone detection solutions. Before organizations procure technology, they should also plan response tactics which will define the drone detection technology requirements. Careful planning ensures organizations can prevent or quickly mitigate drone threats through rapid and consistent response tactics.
In this webinar, Schenkel will explore a drone threat risk management approach, the legal and regulatory environment of drone detection and mitigation solutions, and best practices for response planning exercises.
Adam Schenkel currently serves as a Specialist Master within Deloitte Consulting Government and Public Services, Emerging Infrastructure Platforms market offering. He is a market leader and subject matter expert for Deloitte’s US Drone Services, counter-UAS offering.
Schenkel previously served as Unit Chief and Federal Program Manager for the Multi-Jurisdiction IED Security Planning (MJIEDSP) program at the Office for Bombing Prevention (OBP), within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Mr. Schenkel also served in the U.S. Navy and attained the rank of Master Chief Petty Officer.Register

Integrating Drone Detection Into Your Existing Technology Ecosystem
Speaker: Scott Frigaard, Digital Transformations: Data Fusion & AI Initiatives – Convergint
Security Operations Centers (SOCs) become more intelligent when they integrate more systems, sensors and data sources into the management platform. Drone detection sensor integration leverages existing security technology investments and results in greater situational awareness of threats so that operators can make better informed, data driven decisions.
Frigaard will discuss the value of integrating drone detection into SOCs, what questions end users should ask to ensure proper integration, and support requirements for emerging technology.
Scott Frigaard leads Convergint’s Digital Transformation data fusion efforts to leverage the latest technologies, analytics and deep learning to drive better intelligence, faster, to all stakeholders across the enterprise.
Frigaard has spoken frequently on the topic of data fusion and the need for integration of all physical security applications at many regional and national events including ASIS, International Association of Chiefs of Police, National League of Cities and Killer App Expo.Register

The Importance of Training and Operations for Airspace Security
Speaker: Charles Marino, CEO – Sentinel Security Solutions
A drone detection system only provides actionable intelligence. Accurate data and a low false alarm rate coupled with swift and consistent response to system alerts by security personnel and/or law enforcement serve as a deterrent for hobbyists and nefarious actor drone pilots. Nefarious pilots whose pre-operational flights are interrupted by response personnel will choose another target that is not your facility.
Marino, a former US Secret Service Supervisory Special Agent, will share real world experiences of how and when to conduct personnel training and discuss the often overlooked side of drone detection – operations.
Charles Marino is a former supervisory special agent with the United States Secret Service, previously serving under three presidents. Marino is a prominent Global Security Expert with extensive experience developing and executing complex security and operational strategies, plans, protection programs and budgets for the U.S. government, high net worth clients, major sports teams, and Fortune 500 companies.
As CEO of Sentinel Security Solutions Marino provides expertise on protective methodologies, global security, homeland security, investigation, protective intelligence, executive protection, event security, active shooter mitigation, asset protection, crisis management, crisis communications and security technology.
Marino is a frequent contributor on major news networks providing expert analysis for homeland security, law enforcement, and national security situations.Register
