COURSE SUMMARY This course is one of the elective courses required for Security Certification under the Infrastructure Resilience Research Group, IRRG, Office of the Dean, Faculty of Engineering and Design, Carleton University.


The Security Planning and Presentation Course (SPP) provides participants with the knowledge required to establish a proactive and progressive security program linking security plans to the mandate of the department and the organizational strategic planning and reporting framework. In addition, participants will learn how to make an effective presentation of their security plan.

Module 1 focuses on effective security management to ensure that accountabilities and responsibilities are clearly defined, informed decisions are enabled, and security risks are minimized. In today’s environment of heightened security awareness and limited resources there is a need for improved security planning and risk management for effective and efficient program delivery. Participants will learn how to strengthen the security management framework to improve the overall security posture of the organization and minimize risks.

Module 2 reviews the key elements of a security plan that integrates security into the strategic objectives and sets the security priorities. The plan includes governance, accountability, roles and responsibilities, threat identification and risk analysis, identification of gaps and program challenges, security control measures, monitoring, and reporting.

At the end of this module participants will learn about the 3 “C” s of communication and there will be a discussion on how to present your plan so that you are successful in obtaining your objectives.


At the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Formulate or enhance the Departmental Security Plan within the planning framework.

  • Explain the roles and responsibilities related to security planning and the need to incorporate the security plan into the departmental planning cycle.

  • Understand the security management framework, security control objectives, risk analysis, and key concepts of security.

  • Describe and present the key elements of an integrated security program that supports the business line of the organization and adds value to protect people from harm, assets including sensitive information from compromise, and ensuring the continuity of critical services.

  • Communicate your plan in a presentation format

Who should attend:

The Security Planning and Presentation Course has been designed for security planners, officers and managers who are involved with the development and implementation of the departmental security plan or other security plans required for effective and efficient program delivery.


For those who are interested in broadening their scope of knowledge to advance their career, planning and presenting are key elements of security management.
