Ranging from the worst mass shooting incident in U.S. history in Las Vegas, to the most deadly terror attack in New York City since 9/11 on Halloween day involving a vehicular ramming on a crowded bike path, 2017 was punctuated with several major incidents of mass violence. 

These incidents remind us that no organization or geographic area is immune from extreme violence. It is no longer a question of if there will be another incident, but rather when and where, and most importantly, will your organization be ready? For 2018, the answer must be “yes!
