About the Author

Brenda Rivers, president and CEO of Andavo Meetings, Incentives, Events and Consulting, is a risk management expert who frequently speaks at major meetings industry events as well as for corporations, universities and other organizations who believe the security of their attendees and employees is a paramount concern.

"Planners are increasingly anxious about their responsibility for crisis preparation, yet most lack anything more than security handbooks and checklists to guide them. Reading the security handbook is not preparation. If the organization's response team does not know what to do in the first 10 minutes of a crisis, they are not prepared."
