Haines Security Competes in ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards

Haines Physical Security Engineering Training and Certification Program has been nominated in the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award competition.

Haines Security Solutions is unique within the security industry in providing classes which focus on developing mitigation strategies with an emphasis on antiterrorism and the building design process.

At HSS we’ve recognized that the security industry is horizontal and not vertical in its approach to achieving effective solutions, for this reason we concentrate and encourage interdisciplinary discussions between students from the architectural, emergency management, engineering, facility management, planning and security professions.

Workshops are presented in 1, 2 and 3-day formats and are conducted in a methodical and sequential order as each course builds on the information developed in a previous course.

Although students may attend a workshop on a singular basis and still gain valuable and useful information, the student will receive the greatest benefit when the workshops are taken in the order presented.

Training Sessions Include: 

3 day

  • Designing Secure Buildings: Integrating Security Technologies
  • Access Control Concepts and Entry Control Facility (ECF) Design
  • Planning Electronic Security Systems (ESS) for Buildings and Compounds
  • ICD-705 Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) Design & Construction
  • UFC – Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for DOD Buildings
  • Security Criteria Development: Exceeding DHS Guidelines
  • Vulnerability Assessment and Risk Analysis Methodologies
  • Drills and Exercise Planning and Development
  • Behavior, Learning, Assertive, Contact, Knowledge (B.L.A.C.K.) 
  • Simulated Crisis Management Response Tool (SCMaRT)
experienced instructors give the latest information about what is happening within the security engineering industry and “lessons learned” by citing actual projects the instructors have worked on.
Experienced facilitators give the latest information about what is happening within the security engineering industry and “lessons learned” by citing actual projects the instructors have worked on.

2 day

  • Protecting People, Facilities and Information
  • Security Lighting: Influencing Positive Behavior
  • Inhabited Space: Creating Crime Free Zones

1 day

  • UFC-Minimum Antiterrorism Standards for DOD Buildings
  • Safe Room & Shelter Design and Engineering
  • Protecting Personal Information (PII) in the Digital Age
  • Security Concepts for Decision Makers
  • IT Sustainability and Disaster Recovery
  • Using Building Design to Hinder Acts of Terrorism

Additional Offerings Include, but are Not Limited to:

  • Active Shooter Mitigation and Response Training (Antiterrorism Skills for Employees)
  • Terrorism Against the United States – Why it Works
  • Travel Security – Conscientiousness without the Paranoia
  • Protecting People, Facilities and Information

  • Women’s Empowerment Training

In addition to concentrating on all relevant regulatory requirements, the experienced instructors give the latest information about what is happening within the security engineering industry and “lessons learned” by citing actual projects the instructors have worked on.

Students are also allowed to bring “projects” they are working on for peer review and analysis by the instructors.

Additionally, HSS provides certification and designation based on a combination of academic studies, public speaking engagements or published materials.

Applicants can earn credits for studies completed, for instance military experience, if comparable to courses offered by HSS. Similar to transferable college courses.

There are three tiers of designation:

  • Physical Security Engineer (academic studies only)
  • Senior (additional academics, speaking and publication), and
  • Master (additional academics, national or international speaking and published works)

  • To provide training in a variety of security disciplines that focus on the fundamentals of
    • Security engineering design, and
    • Antiterrorism
      • Which ultimately leads to the deterrence and prevention of criminal activity, and
      • The reduction of the effects of a terrorist act at inhabited facilities and critical infrastructure

Security Engineering Certification Program Goals Include:

  • To certify that personnel are capable of applying the philosophies and principles they have learned when developing plans for the renovation of existing facilities or when designing new ones
  • Incorporating sound and robust security principles in creating a “culture of security” in the student’s business model
    To provide a method of recognition within the industry that designates a person as having achieved a certain level of subject matter expertise
