As the legalization of Cannabis spreads throughout the country, and the Marijuana industry continues to grow, it has become a sector increasingly in need of security solutions. This webinar will educate viewers on becoming the go-to source for the safety and security of Marijuana farms, dispensaries and all of the other moving pieces of the industry — while also providing an opportunity for professional accreditation. Industry experts will provide valuable experience-based information on the intersection of security and Cannabis, and additional resources, such as a Cannabis Good-Better-Best Tiered Solution Selection Tool that can be used as a spreadsheet and guide, will continue to provide guidance long after the webinar.

  1. The standards and regulations that businesses must follow while working in the Cannabis industry.
  2. What security solutions are being used in the Cannabis industry right now, and what is coming in the future.
  3. An overview of security, safety and crime prevention through environmental design with lighting, and value engineering through infrastructure.
