Protection 1, the largest full-service business and home security company in the U.S., will host an advanced educational session entitled “Applied Threat Assessment and Protective Intelligence”. The presenter will be Protection 1 National Account Manager Andy Patrick.

Andy Patrick’s experience as a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, former New York State Trooper and former Special Agent of the US. Secret Service makes him uniquely qualified to lead the discussion. Patrick supervised and directed the planning and implementation of security arrangements for the president, vice president, and foreign heads of state.

“His years of experience and trusted insight help our customers identify the challenges they may face and find solutions to problems they may not even be aware of facing,” Bob Dale, Senior Vice President, said.

The session will focus on prevention of attacks such as school shootings, workplace attacks, assassinations and stalking rather than solving a crime after it has already occurred. Threat assessment investigations and protective intelligence investigations differ from criminal investigations because their focus is on identifying the risk and preventing harm in a proactive way.

Protection 1 is the largest full service business and home security company in the U.S., it provides installation, maintenance and monitoring of single-family home security systems, business security systems and multifamily security systems. When you call Protection 1 you talk to a real person and not an automated phone attendant. Over 2 million customers are serviced by Protection 1 along with their over 3,500 employees. They have a 97.3% customer satisfaction rating and an A+ Better Business Bureau rating.

“We are fortunate to have Andy on the Protection 1 team,” stated Dale. “His years of experience and trusted insight help our customers identify the challenges they may face and find solutions to problems they may not even be aware they will  face.”
