This course is designed to build capabilities for
multi-agency collaboration pertaining to risk management for sport events. It
introduces the seven-step sport security risk management process, including the
idea of risk management and setting risk management goals for sport events,
identifying assets that need protecting and determining risk, implementing
planning and mitigation actions, and implementing after-action review for
events as well as incidents. Through activity-based training modules, intact
security teams will enhance their ability for planning, risk assessment,
training, and exercising practices specific to conducting sport events. The
expectation is for participants to return to their respective organization and
coordinate the development of a sport event security management system.
This course was developed in a partnership effort between The University of Southern Mississippi’s National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (USM/NCS4) and the TEEX National Emergency Response and Recovery Training Center (NERRTC).
