The riots at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 took many by surprise. Unfortunately, this feeling of surprise was felt by security and protection agencies near and far. It forever changed how we value protective intelligence and proactive threat management — especially in close proximity to a high-profile event.

In this episode, Fred Burton and Marisa Randazzo, CEO and Founder of SIGMA Threat Management Associates, discuss how the U.S. Capitol riots were a game changer for not only physical security, but the most high-profile example of a protective intelligence failure in recent history. Analyzing the threat landscape and being aware of even the smallest changes results in less missed signals and the ability to stay ahead of potential crises. In this action-packed episode, Fred and Marisa also discuss the security implications for the upcoming presidential inauguration.
