The cornerstone of the PerSec Academy & Advisory Group is our ability to deliver unmatched training for mitigating active threats encountered in workplaces, classrooms, and public spaces. From the countless employees, teachers, and everyday citizens, to the elite tactical operators we have had the privilege to train over the decades, we are rooted in understanding how to deliver comprehensive and progressive training that resonates and provides durable value. We collaborate with our clients to design programming tailored to the client’s enterprise standards, risk spectrum, and institutional culture. The PerSec Academy & Advisory Group provides the unparalleled professional expertise to empower and prepare the most valued asset…people.
A tenet to a safe and secure facility is understanding the dynamics of its structural limitations, operational environment, and technical vulnerabilities, relative to risk and threat resiliency. PerSec Academy & Advisory Group risk assessments evaluate and analyze these dynamics and support clients with detailed and substantive findings for active threat incident avoidance and mitigation. Unlike general security assessments offered by many companies intended for product and technology placement, our evaluations focus, in part, on maximizing value of existing controllable measures, identifying operational gaps, and assessing culture practices. From critical infrastructure facilities to national landmarks, we serve our clients with expansive professional experience and the same sense of duty we held when protecting our nation’s assets.
PerSec Academy & Advisory Group’s premier tabletop exercises are custom developed and designed to enhance enterprise resiliency for each of our clients. Starting with a comprehensive and detailed client risk analysis, our expert facilitators assist our clients to identify and assess institutional risk factors and capability thresholds for evaluation. Our extensive and global experience in facilitating professional tabletop exercises allows us to leverage our real-world practice and offer insight into directing effective and solution-oriented dialog within a non-stressful and informal environment. From C-Suite leadership to front-line management development, the PerSec Academy & Advisory Group provides our clients with the validation structure and framework for enhancing organizational resiliency.
Moving beyond a presentation setting, the PerSec Academy & Advisory Group conducts tailored Micro Functional Workshops. These hands-on workshops are developed and conducted conveniently at and within the client’s location and operational areas. Ideal for practical learning and confidence building, Micro Functional Workshops serve to build synergy in understanding environmental conditions, individual cognition and circumstance processing, coupled with physical applications of individual threat mitigation strategies. From teachers to healthcare professionals to soldiers, the PerSec Academy & Advisory Group provides real solutions for workplace violence mitigation.

Threat Assessment Guidance
PerSec Academy & Advisory Group provides expert guidance and consultation in the development and management of threat assessment teams and collectives for schools and industry. The practice of identifying and evaluating a threat, or perceived threat, or concerning behavior within an organization is not only challenging but can also be a formidable task in its component development and formalization. The PerSec Academy & Advisory Group can support and guide the implementation of an interdisciplinary threat assessment collective and the valued intervention prevention strategies they provide.
Crisis Recovery Assistance
Managing the immediate aftermath of a targeted mass attack is rarely thought of let alone planned by institutions. Even common business continuity plans don’t include guidance for a recovery process required for such a traumatic event. PerSec Academy & Advisory Groups’s unparalleled professional experience in managing and recovering from unprecedented U.S. terrorism attacks and national critical incidents, can support the broad recovery process and help leaders manage the delicate circumstances associated with the incident. The PerSec Academy & Advisory Group will immediately serve the sensitive needs of guiding the priorities of employee and family assistance, community outreach impact, incident stabilization, and liaison/communication management. This is a service we take no satisfaction in offering. We would be remiss, however knowing all the lessons learned from our own personal critical incidents, if we failed to help others manage in their time of need.
Post-incident litigation has become inevitable. Jin Kim’s professional expertise and specialized knowledge can help institutions and law firms navigate the complexities and unique dynamics associated with active shooter events.
