A great big THANK YOU to those of you who were able to attend Cook Security Groups exclusive “Ask the expert” Lunch-n-Learn/Happy Hour events in San Diego, CA, Portland, OR and Boise, ID last month! Each event provided a day of fantastic food, drinks, education and technology including a very special onsite presentation from Security and Risk Management expert Michael Bacon, former EVP and Head of Global Security and Internal Investigations for Wells Fargo Bank (currently Resolvrisk).
Using real-life incidents as examples, Bacon covered many important topics including:
- Insider threats
- Basics of enterprise fraud risk management
- How to protect your brand through a safe and secure workplace
In addition, Cook Security Group also hosted some of our premier technology partners in the security industry and highlighted our own RemoteView Surveillance w/Mobile App! If you were unable to attend, Cook will be hosting several more events this year. Be on the lookout for your special invite in a region near you!

Ideally, you invest in products that are sold by multiple vendors in your region so you have options (just like your service agreement). If you do get into a proprietary equipment situation, try to research if there are any other 3rd parties that can service or get the equipment so you are not held hostage by one vendor.
