        The Hospitality Security Hub

        Coming in 2020

        Collaboration and mutual support is vital for Security Professionals facing an increasingly dynamic and evolving security threat environment in an unstable world. A range of threat actors are developing increasingly complex methodologies to challenge the security of assets, people, business interests, and reputation. They are increasingly working together sharing capability and adding complexity and challenge. Therefore, effective Security Professionals must understand threat actors, their methodologies, intentions, and the vulnerability of their establishments to these threats. They must keep up to date with mitigation tactics, techniques and procedures; standing still in the security environment is not an option for a professional.

        A global online hub and knowledge sharing platform for Hospitality Security Professionals and those with hospitality security responsibilities. The goal of the HSHub is to support the development of security threat and risk management skills, build establishment resilience, and explore ways of enhancing security functions impact and standing in the wider business. Additionally, it seeks to provide a global space for security professionals to collaborate, share experiences, and share learnings across companies and borders to build a global team for common interests. Although the Community is moderated by NorthPoint, it is designed for its agendas to be driven by the needs of Community Members.
