Protecting Universities against attacks like Virginia Tech, Columbine, and horrors like Beslan, is one of the most important issues in Security. The Participants had much to learn from Gal Nir of Scopus who has conducted drills for entire municipalities in the USA, Ukraine, Australia and more. An entire day was devoted to this including a visit to one of the best examples of tight Israeli security – The Weitzman Institute, one of the world’s most famous science universities with multiple Nobel Prize winners. As the Head of Security told the participants:” we are not relying on anyone to save us but for terror, fire, medical emergency – we handle everything right here. Amazing equipment and wonderful day.
