Working to Safeguard Cincinnati's Critical Infrastructure

InfraGard Cincinnati: Working to Safeguard Cincinnati’s Critical Infrastructure

FBI InfraGard Training Webinar: Pre-Attack Behaviors of Active Shooters and Workplace Violence Threat Management, Presented by the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit
Sep 17 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Faced with the amount of Active Shooter occurrences in the United States, society routinely wrestles with a fundamental question: can anything be done to prevent attacks on our loved ones, our children, our schools, our churches, concerts, and communities?


In the weeks and months before an attack, many active shooters engage in behaviors that may signal impending violence. While some of these behaviors are intentionally concealed, others are observable and — if recognized and reported — may lead to a disruption prior to an attack.


A representative from the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) will discuss their publication of “Making Prevention a Reality: Identifying, Assessing, and Managing the Threat of Targeted Attacks” (available at  This report examines the specific behaviors that may precede an attack and that might be useful in identifying, assessing, and managing those who may be on a pathway to violence.  BAU will also discuss best practices for implementing a workplace violence prevention program that requires the input, cooperation, and ongoing efforts of Security, Legal, Cyber, Human Resources, Employee Assistance, and other departments in an organization.

ICMA General Meeting – Black Hat, DEF CON, and DerbyCon Recap (Lunch Provided) @ Dinsmore & Shohl
Nov 14 @ 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm


Review of Black Hat, DEF CON, and DerbyCon by Tim Lange



There is some limited street parking along Sycamore and 5th Streets, however only some are two-hour meters.  The easiest accessible garage parking is the garage attached to the First Financial and PNC buildings.  Drivers can navigate to 430 Main Street.  If that is full or for another option, you can park just across 5th street from the First Financial Building in the Columbia Plaza Garage.  Navigate to 250 East 5th Street for that garage.  There is a skywalk to cross over to the First Financial Building.  There are two buildings that are attached, some people end up in the wrong one.  Dinsmore & Shohl is in the one further to the east – First Financial which is at 5th and Sycamore.  (PNC is to the west at 5th and Main.)


Additional parking can also be found in an open log on Sycamore and 7th, under Fountain Square, or in the Great American building on 3rd street.



Visitors should access the second elevator bank in the First Financial building and take that up to the 19th floor (Dinsmore & Shohl’s conference floor).  Receptionists there will check visitor names off the RSVP list and will then direct you to the appropriate space for our event.
