Creating a Protective Environment for Today's Museums

Monday, December 5, 2016
10:00am - 3:00pm
Robert Russa Moton Museum
Farmville, Virginia

As public institutions, museums need to be prepared more than ever for emergencies and the unimaginable. Guest speakers will examine the implications, reasoning, and benefits of taking steps towards securing your museum. Learn about the different aspects of security, from doing a threat assessment to creating policies and procedures. Staff from the Virginia Holocaust Museum will additionally guide attendees on how to start a security department from scratch. While no two museums are the same and budgets and size play a role in levels of preparedness, you will leave with an understanding of how you can begin to make your museum more secure.
