Various organizations have a “duty of care” to maintain a secure environment for their staff, tenants, patients, and visitors. In the event of a deadly attack, they could be liable for regulatory and civil actions.  There are significant challenges to securing places of business, particularly ones where visitors “come and go” frequently. Despite security measures, businesses with frequent visitors are difficult to secure. These organizations are particularly susceptible to “lone attackers” who can enter buildings unchallenged.
