Cannabis Security - Beyond Compliance

A security plan utilizing the minimum technology and operational procedures to meet compliance requirements with regulations should not be mistaken as a security plan designed to protect the people and property within a cannabis facility. No single state’s security requirements meet the physical protection standards utilized by every type of business. Most state requirements include antiquated and misunderstood elements for security compliance or fail to address many areas entirely.


After attending this session, you will be able to:

  • Understand the existing security requirements for IL cannabis facilities.
  • · Define the three types of security plans and understand how they work together.
  • · Understand how cannabis organizations can improve their security posture.
