Event Type Workshop Description Theft and vandalism of historical objects plague museums nationwide. And yet, many repositories still fail to recognize the vulnerability of their collections to loss. Any museum seeking to provide the best possible security for its collections must implement coordinated policies that address threats for long-term sustainable access to the public. With careful planning, awareness of warning signs, and proactive security solutions, museums can reduce the window of opportunity for collection damage and theft. This full-day workshop, which will be led by conservator and preservation consultant Donia Conn, is a deep dive into the theft and vandalism of collections. In the morning, participants will learn about: risk awareness; insider theft; facility design and security technology; security of information systems; working with vendors and contractors; research room management and design; developing institutional security policies and procedures; and post-event response. In the afternoon, an activity will allow participants to assess a staged museum space and identify the site's theft risk.
