A. Benjamin Mannes has worked with a clientele of public, private and nonprofit organizations in a planning capacity. While many organizations run out to buy the newest and greatest technologies and services for security and public safety; they often do so without the careful planning in place to know exactly what they may need. Mannes works with clients to build, refine and test security, investigative and emergency preparedness plans to assure they liability is mitigated and organizations are ready to address issues in the most efficient and effective way possible.
Security and Public Safety
There is currently a multi-million dollar industry in providing physical and cyber security, safety and emergency technologies and services worldwide. The problem is, most organizations go to the same companies offering these services and technologies to provide the assessments needed to make an educated decision on what their vulnerabilities are. There is a more efficient and effective solution tailored to your needs so that you can take the overall responsibility for the protection of your own assets.
Mannes is affiliated with established industry experts in both physical & cyber security, forensic profilers, liability mitigation, public integrity, and management consulting with active membership in bench-marking organizations and has the current certifications necessary to conduct threat assessment and vulnerability assessments of your organization, staff, facilities, and operations necessary to make an educated and economical decision on what types of services and/or technologies are needed to make your organization safe and secure. These types of assessments are vital to the integrity and health of your organization.
Training & Consulting
As a subject matter expert, Mr. Mannes has worked to establish best practices and aid organizations in their efforts to secure their personnel, physical & intellectual assets. He has served with committees at the American Board of Medical Specialties, Association of Test Publishers, and currently serves as an elected Governor on the Executive Board of InfraGard, the FBI-coordinated public private partnership for critical infrastructure protection and the Peirce College Criminal Justice Studies Advisory Board in Philadelphia. In capacities on boards or in professional engagements, Mr. Mannes has consulted/advised professionals with the American Board of Radiology, American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC/MCAT) American Board of Pediatrics, International Counter_terrorism Officer’s Association, Caveon Test Security/Institute for Exam Integrity, National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners, Institute for Credentialing Excellence, the Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation, Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards, City of Los Angeles, Boston Police Department, National Crime Prevention Council, and The Maryland, Mississippi, and Kentucky Departments of Education.
Mannes develops and conducts specialized training services for individuals and organizations in his area(s) or expertise, as well as referring experts in related fields to those needing specialized training.
Facilities Management and Public Venue Consulting
In 2017, Mannes teamed up with the legendary Joeseph Romano, former Senior Vice President, Stadiums & Arenas Division for SMG to offer seamless management and security consulting for public facilities and event venues. The engagement of the Romano/Mannes team gives clients a unique perspective to the management and security of their facilities and venues, to include the incorporation of Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) into capital improvement projects, Presidential/Homeland Security Directive compliance, and the importance of contingency/security and emergency management planning before incidents occur; as it’s always more costly to retrofit plans, policies, and technology to existing projects.

Mannes has partnered with Paradigm Testing to offer a full suite of end-to-end solutions for test sponsors in the education, licensure, certification and admissions sectors. Whether you are seeking in-person or online testing platforms, planning and consulting, or looking to evaluate your exam’s security, validity and integrity; this strategic partnership allows for expertise and cutting edge solutions in your assessment operations and exam integrity needs.
