Kiernan Group Holdings (KGH) is a certified Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB) built by practitioners for practitioners with extensive earned experience in the law enforcement, intelligence, military and emergency preparedness communities. We are able to navigate seamlessly at both the classified and unclassified levels. We examine threat spectrums impacting the public and private sectors to identify risk, mitigate surprise and build a platform of resiliency to drive organizational resiliency and liability decision cycles.
Our programmatic approach known as Preparedness Without Paranoia® is not simply active shooter training, nor is it a single-threaded tactical approach. Experience shows that practical, common sense, educational models can be learned and more importantly used by ordinary individuals, literally from the classroom to the boardroom. We understand that Active Threat is not confined to active shooters; it includes insider threat, workplace and domestic violence. We believe that the best defense to any active threat is a prepared and engaged citizenry who operate in a soft target environment with a hard target mindset.
We believe that preparedness is a mindset and the foundation for resiliency at an individual and community level which requires a holistic approach, not a single-threaded tactical solution. We know that in most active threat situations it takes an average of six-eight minutes for the first responders to arrive and that time can be best used to take the advantage away from an individual seeking to do harm. Replacing fear with confidence to react without hesitation can dramatically change the outcome when an ordinary day turns into an extraordinary one without warning.
We believe that security sense is common sense that everyone can learn and apply, as ordinary really as fastening your seatbelt without thinking about it. It is a skillset that can be learned at a very early age and carried throughout life.
It matters first and foremost from an individual survival perspective should an ordinary day turn extraordinary. It matters from an organizational standpoint in recruiting and retaining personnel, reducing corporate liability, and protecting your brand. It matters from a community perspective to develop a shared sense of responsibility in awareness, preparedness, response, and recovery.
We shine because we recognize that there always seems to be more to do than there is time available to do it with busy schedules. We designed training that is comprehensive, easy to navigate, continually refreshed, and supported by state of practice capabilities tailored to user needs. Your organization can meet your training requirements on time, online, and receive immediate feedback.
