SESSION SS126:

Detect and Protect: Mail Screening for all Budgets

Explore the options for blending mail screening techniques into your mail center, from basic inspection to full scope threat detection. The incorporation of mail screening initiatives and procedures into Mail Center operations is no longer “optional”. Federal entities are required to have all inbound mail and parcels inspected and reviewed for mail-borne threats. CBRNE threats and while powder hoaxes have become more and more prevalent and easy to introduce into facilities through the mail stream, creating a new sub-sector of mailroom management-mail screening services.
