Security protocols in the cannabis industry will vary from state to state, but also county by county and city by city. Municipalities and jurisdictions are developing their own set of protocols and requirements, meaning there is no one set standard. This webinar will make sense of it all. You will learn the various requirements and how security staff is able to stay out front in the changing security requirements.
You will learn how compliance officers and analysts keep up with changing regulations and how to use video surveillance and data storage systems to support cannabis industry security.
