Security, Security Consulting and Investigations is a dynamic and forever changing environment. Understanding that RISK is a combination of THREAT, VULNERABILITY and CONSEQUENCES keeps one on their toes because you never know when things will change.

The secret to having effective security is a combination of Deterrence, Detection, Delay and Response. There is no “voodoo magic” or “silver bullet.”  Mr. Acevedo has been involved in investigations and security consulting for more than 20 years. He has been designated a Certified Protection Professional (CPP) by ASIS. Mr. Acevedo is also a Certified Protection Specialist (CPS), having graduated from Executive Security International, as a level-one agent.

During his twenty-year career, he has conducted hundreds of investigations and security consulting projects around the world. Mr. Acevedo has had the honor and privilege of working in more than forty plus countries and nearly every state within the United States including Alaska.

He has had the opportunity to speak at a number of events including ASIS International and has written a number of articles on the subject. Mr. Acevedo is considered a subject matter expert with regard to Unmanned Systems both as a potential solution and as a threat.

Speaking Topic: 
* The Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of Unmanned Systems

Unmanned systems can be used to enhance security, but they also pose threats. Failure to address these threats in a pro-active manner could place security professionals in situations with serious consequences. Examine the latest use cases, threats and vulnerabilities along with countermeasures that can be deployed in the air, ground, and water. Identify and discuss new policies, procedures, and global legislation while recognizing the steps that private security can take to lower the risk from Unmanned Systems.

William Dillon

William Dillon has volunteered to tell his personal nightmare regarding his wrongful conviction for the murder of a Canova Beach Park, Florida man found beaten to death. His conviction resulted from testimony of a 56-year-old man called John Parker who claimed to have been in the Canova Beach Park car lot when a blood-splattered William emerged from the woods.

Then William's girlfriend testified she had found William on the night of the murder standing next to the dead body, bloody and shirtless.

And then there was dog-handler John Preston, whose amazing sniffer dog had managed to trace William's scent all the way from the courthouse to the scene of the crime.

In addition, a man who William had shared a cell with while awaiting trial in jail claimed William had confessed to the murder and had even demonstrated how he had killed Dvorak.

For the young William sitting in the dock it was a living nightmare.

Knowing he was innocent, William had never arranged for a lawyer to be present at the initial interviews and right up until the last moment he felt sure justice would prevail.

In fact, all the evidence against him was a sham.

Without telling you all the details of William had his conviction overturned in 2012 William was granted a full pardon by Florida Governor Rick Scott.

Please attend and listen to this remarkable man tell his real-life story.
