Event Description

Unique Challenges in Securing a Medical Marijuana Production Facility and How to Achieve Security Compliance.

Securing a medical marijuana production facility has very unique challenges, even very different than other pharmaceutical facilities. These unique challenges require equally unique solutions. Preventing loss from both external and internal sources is important not just because of the financial implications for a particular company but for the industry as a whole that is working toward viability and mainstream acceptance.

Blending the culture of the marijuana industry, medical or otherwise, with the generally vigorous required security regulations is key to a successful loss prevention program for a facility. The fact that the product is a living plant also adds complications not seen in other industries. While some standard inventory controls can be utilized, others cannot. There are also varying thoughts about the level of security needed when it comes to the delivery of the product outside of the facility. Also, because of current industry banking issues, the handling of cash is an important security consideration.  All these issues must be addressed.

In this presentation, Brian Gouin, CSC, PSP will provide you with a better understanding of the unique challenges in securing a medical marijuana production facility. Learn why these challenges exist and get real world experiences in the introduction of security into the medical marijuana production culture. Also know how to navigate the issues when dealing with a live plant. In addition, get practical guidance on important topics such as inventory control, delivery, and cash handling.

This session will provide you critical knowledge you can use to either prepare yourselves for what to expect in the industry or to make adjustments to your existing programs for the betterment of your facility and the industry as a whole.
