About the webinar:

To encourage development and widespread deployment of effective anti-terrorism technologies, Congress enacted the Support Anti-Terrorism by Fostering Effective Technologies (SAFETY) Act in 2002. The SAFETY Act is an incentive program that provides liability protections for claims resulting from an act of terrorism where SAFETY Act approved technologies have been deployed. More information about the program can be found at www.safetyact.gov.

In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, the private sector was extremely reluctant to deploy security technologies and services in civilian settings due to the enormous liability risks involved. Should the company’s technologies—whether a product or service—be impacted by an act of terrorism, the company could be held responsible for any damages.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn the critically important benefits that SAFETY Act coverage can provide for providers and/or users of effective anti-terrorism products or services.
  • Review the process by which SAFETY Act coverage can be obtained.
  • Learn tips for submitting a complete SAFETY Act application.

Target audience:

  • Enterprise/Risk Managers
  • Product/Program Managers
  • Business Development/Sales Executives
  • Vice Presidents of Operations
  • Vice Presidents of Marketing
  • Vice Presidents of Information Technology
  • Vice Presidents
  • Legal Officers
