Nerd Out Security Panel Discussion: EP 9. Moving forward from Inauguration

The Nerd Out! Security Panel Discussion podcast episodes are recurring discussions among our team and our valued guests as we explore the all-hazards threats and risks impacting the United States and internationally. As we seek to help apply a threat-informed, risk-based approach to analysis, preparedness and operations, we hope these podcasts are informative and maybe even a little entertaining.

In the latest Nerd Out! Security Panel DiscussionDave Pounder hosts Joe LevyBridget Johnson and Travis Moran to discuss the continued fallout from the 06 January events at Capitol Hill and what it means post-Inauguration. Here’s a hint, we still need to be prepared for domestic terror groups and how they may spin events for their benefit. The group then looks at what 06 January means from a security perspective moving forward and what lessons can be learned.
