Athena Security, a global entryway security and concealed weapons detection system software provider, announced the launch of a new podcast titled “Security Heroes.” According to the announcement, the new semi-monthly podcast sheds light on the positive aspects of keeping people safe while recognizing these true heroes of society and exploring the challenges they face and the industry as a whole.

“There’s content out there about heroes generally, and now here is a go-to resource that shares real-life stories of heroes in the security world,” said Lisa Falzone, co-founder and president of Athena Security. “The ‘Security Heroes’ podcast aims to be a voice for these extraordinary people and to connect them with audiences who can benefit from their hard-earned wisdom.”

Hosted by Falzone, the podcast features interviews with some of the best and brightest minds in the world of security. Early episodes feature experts such as Mel Cortez, who founded Cortex GOLD to help organizations mitigate workplace violence, and Lisa Terry, chief development officer at Vistelar, a conflict management training and consulting institute.

In the podcast, Cortez dives into the roles of policy and procedure, training and tactical empathy, integrated technology and more. She also shares practical advice and her long-term vision for nurse safety. Podcast guests tackle topics from how security workers react in high-stress scenarios to the challenges that arise in emergency situations and share personal accounts from their security journeys.
