Museum Security Fundamentals

Good museum security does not need to break the bank.  This webinar will cover risk management strategies to reduce the likelihood of collections theft and vandalism.  It will focus on tools to identify risk and low-cost procedures to control access and protect collections.  Attendees will learn how to plan a comprehensive security system and control keys to collections storage and exhibit spaces.
