Behavioral Threat Analysis

watch icon

Preventing school violence is a top priority for school and public safety officials. Efforts include creating more positive school environments, establishing crisis response teams, increasing security measures, and improving school/community collaboration.

An important additional approach is that of a Behavioral Risk Threat Assessment, which uses a set of strategies or pathways to determine the credibility and seriousness of a threat and the likelihood that it will be carried out. Effective threat assessment must be conducted by a team of trained professionals as part of a comprehensive school safety program.

Business Impact Analysis

watch icon

To ensure that your school’s continuity program addresses all key elements of continuity, it is vital to perform a complete analysis of the business, and impacts of any disruption to day-to-day school operations. This webinar addresses the Firestorm Business Impact Analysis (BIA) and is the foundation work upon which the entire continuity planning process is built.

The BIA is designed to gather necessary information while requiring minimal resource drain on those key individuals who must provide the information for the analysis. The BIA will not only help prioritize planning, testing and training, but will also provide an important guide for critical decisions during response to a disruption to your facility or campus.

Why Assess: Social Media Compliance


watch icon



When assessing the risks associated with social media challenges, schools must balance the schools’ needs with students’, parents’ and employees’ various rights and interests.

Monitoring can be used to track threat trends, emerging trends in student use and employee use and misuse. But before you monitor, you must assess. Schools that have adopted social media without a social media assessment and a clear risk monitoring plan and are at risk.

In this webinar, we will discuss the Firestorm Social Media Risk Assessment. This assessment covers regulatory agency guidance, rules and regulations with regard to social media use including: Student risk, teacher and employee use risk, compliance & legal risk, account takeover, due diligence, oversight, control, reputation risk, fraud & brand Identity, 3rd party contractor risk, inappropriate postings and school threat analysis.

Why Assess? Workplace Violence

watch icon



 RenWeb has partnered with industry expert Jim Satterfield, President and COO of Firestorm Solutions, to bring you a webinar series designed to help your organization be prepared if disaster strikes. In this session of our series, we’ll discuss why it is important to assess.

Workplace violence can often be unforeseen, but it may often be the ultimate outcome of continued issues involving employees and/or management. There are steps to take to prevent workplace violence and to protect employees. Having a system to report workplace violence threats, or tell-tale signs of such is one way that organizations can intervene before a situation culminates into a full, violent incident.
