Active Shooter

Ray Hanna, Protective Security Advisor, US Department of Homeland Security

Active shooter incidents are often unpredictable and evolve quickly. In the midst of the chaos, anyone can play an integral role in mitigating the impacts of an active shooter incident. The US Department of Homeland Security aims to enhance preparedness through a "whole community" approach by providing products, tools, and resources to help you prepare for and respond to an active shooter incident. This Active Shooter presentation will address active shooter incidents as well as workplace violence issues and DHS' “If you See Something, Say Something" (TM) campaign. The goal of this presentation is to make you more aware of how to respond to active shooter incidents not only at the workplace, but rather everywhere you and your families go (malls, places of worship, school, movies, etc.).

Raymond A. “Ray” Hanna has served as the Department of Homeland Security Protective Security Advisor (PSA) for the Baltimore District since 2005. Mr. Hanna supports homeland security efforts, serving in an advising and reach-back capacity to state Homeland Security Advisors. He contributes to the development of the national risk picture by assisting with the identification, assessment, monitoring, and minimizing of risk to critical assets at the local level. As a PSA, Mr. Hanna facilitates, coordinates, and performs vulnerability assessments for local critical infrastructure and assets, acts as a physical and technical security advisor to federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, and provides terrorism/criminal awareness training to both the public and private sectors.

Mr. Hanna has over 22 years of experience as a Criminal Investigator with the U.S. Secret Service (USSS) and has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Maryland.

9:30-10:30 am: Presentation

Get Unstuck: Using Design Thinking to solve your most complex problems

Cal Bowman, Deputy Homeland Security Advisor, Governor's Office of Homeland Security

Your job is complicated; no problem in the homeland security ecosystem is simple. You may have been working on the same problem for months, frustrated by the present-forward approach to problem solving. Maybe it’s time to approach the problem differently and use innovative methods to unlock a solution that will get you closer to the answer. Design Thinking is a mindset. Design Thinking is about having an intentional process in order to get new, relevant solutions that create positive impact. It’s human-centered. It’s collaborative. It’s optimistic. It’s experimental.

Led by a combination of design thinking and homeland security experts, Get Unstuck is a workshop for defining and solving critical public safety challenges using empathy, user-centered design, rapid prototyping, and stakeholder validation. Developed and utilized by innovators in Silicon Valley, this workshop is a “greatest hits” of strategy, innovation, behavior science, design thinking, and more—packaged into a battle-tested process that any team can use to solve some of our most complex problems. At the end of the session, you’ll walk away with the foundational elements of a solution that not only responds to your problem, but enhances your capacity to continue to iterate once you’re back in your daily grind.

Cal Bowman is the Deputy Homeland Security advisor to the Governor of Maryland and a pioneer at the intersection of innovation, technology, and homeland security. In 2016, he was named Top 40 Under 40 in Maryland by the Daily Record.

In his current role, Cal leads the statewide effort to development, implement, and coordinate a statewide homeland security and cybersecurity strategy, expanding public/private partnerships that address the disparity between the pace of change in cyberspace and our ability to develop systems, safety nets, government regulations, and unique partnerships that enable government systems to reap the benefits of emerging technology and cushion new vulnerabilities. Prior to serving as Deputy HSA, he worked as the Chairman of the Baltimore Urban Area Security Initiative.

Cal has earned an undergraduate degree in Political Science from Towson University and holds a graduate degree in Security Studies from the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS). His Thesis, “A DHS Skunkworks Project: Defining and Addressing Homeland Security Grand Challenges” was published and nominated for the Outstanding Thesis Award. Currently, Cal is a Visiting Scholar at the NPS Center for Homeland Defense and Security and is a co-founder of HSx, and advanced thinking in Homeland Security program.
