Miami, FL (PRWEB) November 25, 2010
The 5th Annual Homeland Security Professionals Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, hosted by The Counter Terrorist Magazine, was a complete success. “At a time when there is increasing evidence of home-grown terrorism and viable bombs being sent from Yemen, we were extremely proud that it felt like ‘it was the counter terrorism equivalent of Harvard,’ according to one participant,” said Sol Bradman, CEO of Security Solutions International, the publishers of The Counter Terrorist Magazine.
With hands-on professionals involved, each session was packed with information. From John Giduck’s look at the Evolution of Mass Hostage Events and the symphonic attacks at Mumbai to Col. Jennifer Hesterman speaking about groups within the USA, the conference gave a wide group of professionals a chance to stay ahead of the threat. There were presentations on medical subjects, on reacting rapidly to threats and even a session about the psychological impact and implications to the First Responder Community which was presented by a certified expert in traumatic stress. Paul Schweinler’s course explored preparedness and response to terrorism with an emphasis on at-risk populations, coping mechanisms, resiliency, self-care for disaster responders and the psychological and psychosomatic symptoms that appear after an attack.
“People are signing up for next year already, and we are looking forward to record attendance,” said Bradman.
Next year, the conference will again be held at the Palace Station Hotel in Las Vegas. The dates for the next conference are October 3rd-7th, 2011. To see a movie about the conference, please visit our YouTube channel – http://www.youtube.com/user/homelandsecurityssi.
