Risk management professionals involved with cannabis organizations must be aware of the specific legal requirements regarding safety and security in this sector, including security technology, employee checks, and visitor and inventory requirements. This webinar will cover additional, and often overlooked, security risks and mitigation strategies for cannabis businesses, including vaults and storage, guards and transportation. Aside from legal requirements to construct and provide a mature security and risk management program for a cannabis business, stakeholders must consider other unique and inherent business risks, including product and property safety and security, worker safety, and environmental, social and cybersecurity issues.
