Mary Gates, GMR 410 Heath, to deliver webinar on Bank Branch Protection

Presentation to be given to the Independent Bankers Association of Texas

HEATH, TX (Oct. 24, 2020) Mary Gates of GMR 410, LLC., a subsidiary of GMR Protection Resources, is set to present a webinar to the Independent Bankers Association of Texas (IBAT). The presentation, to be delivered on Tuesday, Oct. 27, is entitled, “Protecting Your Branches: Implementing a Risk Assessment Program to Safeguard Employees, Customers and Assets.”

Attendees will learn about:

  • Physical security and crime risk assessments
  • Why a Risk Assessment Program is needed
  • Various approaches to the risk assessment process
  • The 8 key elements to assess and mitigate risk

“All banks, bank facilities, bank customers, and employees are confronted with a certain level of risk concomitant with various threats,” says Mary. “The threats may be the result of natural events, accidents, or intentional acts to cause harm and create havoc. Threat, vulnerability, and risk are terms that are inherent to security programs. But frequently, organizations get their meanings confused. Following this session, security managers will understand the relationships between threats, vulnerabilities, and consequences so they can effectively manage the impact of an event — and manage the risk.”
