Proven Practices Library Built Upon Experience of Successful Practitioners

September 14, 2010, Washington, DC—The Security Executive Council’s newly launched Proven Practices Library shares on-demand learning and executive presentation resources that have been created and proven effective by successful security practitioners. It was designed to provide high-end resources at a reasonable price for security programs struggling with constrained budgets and lack of staff time.

The presentations offered address a wide variety of topics and challenges faced by security and risk practitioners from the Fortune 500 to the “Fortune 500,000” level. Security leaders and others responsible for mitigating risks can review each presentation to determine whether it’s the right resource for their industry, company type and culture based on the author’s experience and expertise.

Each of these narrated PowerPoint presentations was created by a Security Executive Council practitioner expert who wants to share the insight he or she has gained over a successful security career. Unlike most presentations available from security organizations and media, all materials in the Proven Practices Library are built upon successful practitioner experience rather than product sales pitches. Currently available presentations include:

• Briefing Your C-Level Executive: Threat Briefing and Practical Examples for How to Deal With Emerging Threats, by Theresa Payton (Former White House CIO)

• Media Exposure and Risk: Protecting the Person, by Kenneth Kasten (formerly with Carlson Companies)

• Supply Chain Security: The Art of Connectivity Management—Linking Productivity Improvement with Net Returns to Your Security Investments, by Peter Cheviot (former VP of Corporate Security for BAX Global Inc.)

• Toolbox to Develop Your Workplace Violence Prevention Program: A Training Guide for Managers and Supervisors, by Rosalind W. Jackson (former manager of Georgia-Pacific’s workplace violence prevention program)

Proven Practices presentations may be used for program development or enhancement, training, personal development, or presentation to senior management. Presentation authors are also available for more in-depth interaction, from the creation of customized presentations, to one-on-one communication and speaking engagements.

The Proven Practices library is one outcome of the Council’s Legacy Initiative, which was designed to share experience-based security-related information concerning programs and problem solving with practitioners throughout the world.
