Your Guide to Securing the Cannabis Industry

As the legalization of Cannabis spreads throughout the country, and the Marijuana industry continues to grow, it has become a sector increasingly in need of security solutions. This webinar will educate viewers on becoming the go-to source for the safety and security of Marijuana farms, dispensaries and all of the other moving pieces of the industry — while also providing an opportunity for professional accreditation. Industry experts will provide valuable experience-based information on the intersection of security and Cannabis, and additional resources, such as a Cannabis Good-Better-Best Tiered Solution Selection Tool that can be used as a spreadsheet and guide, will continue to provide guidance long after the webinar.

Learning Objectives:

  • The standards and regulations that businesses must follow while working in the Cannabis industry.
  • What security solutions are being used in the Cannabis industry right now, and what is coming in the future.
  • An overview of security, safety and crime prevention through environmental design with lighting, and value engineering through infrastructure.
  • How to use the Cannabis Good-Better-Best Tiered Solution Selection tool as a spreadsheet and guide when securing businesses.
