Nerd Out Security Panel Discussion: EP 19. Talking Crowd Control and the Holidays - in 2 Parts!

In the latest episode of Nerd Out, this is a very special two parter. In the first part, the nerdies (Bridget and Joe) talk about the fallout from the Houston Astropark disaster ranging from the considerations that go into the event planning, and whether there should be a blame game. And then they look at how threat actors may use this event for future threat planning (note the Hostile Events Attack Cycle) before turning their attention to the latest National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin release and what it could mean for the holidays. In part two, Dave welcomes in Tamara Herold and goes a little deeper into the Houston incident and what it could mean for events moving forward.  Some references brought up in the podcast: Example of Crowd wave: Crowd Dynamics: and Roger Federer saves kid: 2018 Concert in Italy: Dave Pounder is a Senior Risk Analyst for Gate.
