Effective security planning is crucial for event management in today's world. With the increasing threats of terrorism and other life-threatening behavior, it is essential to be prepared for the unexpected. Creating a security management plan may seem challenging, but it is vital for ensuring the safety and security of your event.

Visual Planning: Spotting and Mitigating Risks

One of the most effective ways to plan event security is through visual event planning platforms. These platforms, like the Iventis Planner, provide an overview of the venue or site, allowing you to identify and mitigate risks more easily. Collaborating with agencies and external security partners becomes smoother, leaving no room for uncertainty.

Did you know that the Iventis Planner was trusted to plan event security at the esteemed Dubai Expo 2020 and COP26 United Nations Climate Change Conference?

Traditionally, event organizers might use web-based mapping tools like Google Maps. However, these tools have limitations when it comes to creating comprehensive event and functional area plans. Visual planning platforms offer a purpose-built solution designed explicitly for event security planning.

Collaboration: Ensuring a Common View

Planning events requires a collaborative effort involving various stakeholders. Working in sync with outside agencies, emergency services, and private security firms is essential but challenging when data is scattered across offline copies of spreadsheets and presentations. This often leads to duplicated or missed efforts, posing significant security risks.

To avoid such pitfalls, every stakeholder needs access to a clear, up-to-date view of the event security plan. Having a single view ensures that everyone is on the same page, from external stakeholders to the internal event planning team.

Infrastructure: Utilizing Available Resources

Understanding and utilizing available infrastructure plays a vital role in event security management. Secure perimeters, entry and exit points, and barriers and fencing are critical considerations. However, it is crucial to identify potential vulnerabilities in these elements to provide adequate security and mitigate risks. Visualizing these elements allows for effective deployment of resources such as CCTV and additional security personnel.

Considering the rise in hostile vehicle attacks, it is imperative to factor in hostile vehicle litigation when planning event security.

Transport: Safely Moving People

Transportation logistics are fundamental to the safety and success of any event, especially those with large public followings or ticketed attendance. As transport requirements can change rapidly, organizers must have a constant understanding of the event's transport services and emergency plans. This information needs to be shared in real-time with stakeholders and, if necessary, attendees or the general public, particularly during security incidents.

The Iventis Planner enables the creation of multiple plans in one platform, easily shareable via links or PDFs, ensuring seamless communication.

Staff, Screening Areas, and Checkpoints: Streamlining Security

Managing the movement of attendees and preventing unauthorized access requires efficient coordination. Screening areas, checkpoints, and access permissions play a crucial role in maintaining security. By planning the layout of pedestrian screening areas, queues, vehicle permit areas, and checkpoints within the Iventis Planner, you can strengthen your security plan. Additionally, implementing access control measures and accreditation within the venue further enhances event safety.

Building Your Comprehensive Security Plan

These are just some of the considerations necessary for creating an event security management plan. Safety and security should be prioritized at every stage of planning an event. While developing a comprehensive security plan may seem overwhelming, tools like the Iventis Planner can simplify the process. Reach out to Iventis today to discover how they can support you in ensuring the security of your event.
