The Third Annual Tribal Security Symposium will be held October 26-27, 2020 at Viejas Casino & Resort in Alpine, CA. Virtual Registration is also now available!

This unique symposium will cover one of the most important aspects of running a casino, hotel or other enterprise: its security. The world we live in continues to grow in uncertainty, and everyday establishments are at risk for a wide variety of threats including physical violence, theft, fraud and other inappropriate behaviors that put the welfare of their patrons at risk.

You will learn from top security experts from around the country regarding the best practices to protect your employees, customers, and brand. All sessions are designed to ensure you bring back knowledge to your enterprise to help create a safer, more secure organizational environment.

Our goal is to deliver an educational event with maximum networking opportunities and to create a one-of-a-kind experience for all those who participate.

Fail to plan, plan to fail.
