Jim Satterfield Firestorm Crisis Management

1.) Open Source Intelligence – How do you know what you don’t know?


Sunday, March 26 from 1:00 – 3:30 p.m.

Presented by: Jim Satterfield, Firestorm CEO/President and Co-Founder

One of the top three failures in a disaster or risk is the failure to monitor all threats and risks. The majority of companies today do not have a formal Threat Intelligence Program in place. There is not a specific plan with dedicated resources and tools in place. Many companies have portions of the solution, but lack a formal integrated solution. Where do you start? What are the essential components of an Intelligence Network?

Attendees will:

  • Receive a planCrisis Coach Register
  • Learn outsource-intelligence strategies and tools
  • Design their own intelligence network based on their specific Risk and Vulnerability Profile

2.) Workplace Violence Prevention (WPV) Training and Plan Development – What do you do?


Wed., March 29, 1:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Thurs., March 30, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Firestorm® is America’s CRISIS COACH®. Learn from the best. Attendees will develop a WPV Behavioral Risk Threat Assessment Program. Every crisis is a human crisis. While Firestorm® uses this phrase to focus the impacts of disasters, crises, and violence on people, it also applies to understanding the likelihood and immediacy of events. Whether violence or cyber-bullying, there are warning signs and indicators. Missing recognition of behaviors of concern or failing to listen to what is being said empowers escalation to violence. Knowing before the gun comes to work is a critical intelligence planning responsibility for every company. The earlier a problem is detected, the less impact it will have.

It should be the aim of every company to create a culture where safety from violence is a common goal of both employees and leadership. To achieve such a culture, warning signs must be recognized and understood; everyone must know how to report behaviors of concern; there must be procedures in place to investigate when there are concerns; and trained school employees must know when to conduct a behavioral risk assessment and have the necessary resources in place to do so.

Attendees of this session will:

  • Receive a one year license for the Firestorm Behavioral Risk and Threat Assessment Program (BeRThA®) at no cost.
  • Learn behavioral risk and threat assessment program components
  • Review case study analysis of violence behaviors
  • Develop a predictive intelligence network
