Snap up this expert training for new security officers.

Everyone has to start somewhere – even security officers. They are foundational to the safety of each financial institution and training is essential to their success. This practical program will address the security officer’s role, best practices, regulatory compliance, physical security issues, and more.

Security officer dos, don’ts, and best practices will be covered. Other topics will include:

  1. How often your staff should be trained on security
  2. How new equipment will change your training strategies
