Questions & Answers

One of the sessions at this year's Security Officer's Workshop was a panel discussion to address questions from the attendees (both in person and via remote streaming). The panelists (Barbara Hurst, Barry Thompson, Mary Lois Stockman, and Kevin Smith) used a jeopardy game format, and those in attendance had a lot of fun. We thought our readers would be interested in some of the discussion points and questions from the session.
