Integrated Threat Management- Enhancing Campus Safety

Oct. 6

How safe is your campus?  How secure is your network?  What happens when you have an “incident”?  With headlines topping the news like "IRS: Breach larger than first reported" or "21 students, security guard stabbed at Franklin Regional High School" there is no question that security needs to be held to a higher standard than in the past.  At the same time, the modern campus has become increasingly more complex as new technologies emerge.  

Join Dagostino Electronic Services, Inc., along with its preferred partners, Fortinet andGenetec, at this thought-provoking seminar where we will discuss:

  • Protecting the campus community through emergency preparedness.
  • Trends in campus safety and security.
  • Challenges: funding; planning, migrating and incorporating new technologies; finding the right providers and partners.
  • Best practices including:
    • Planning, testing, reviewing, implementing and validating emergency response processes.
    • Providing transparent communication of safety and security plans within the campus and surrounding communities.
    • Using technology to support policy implementation and enforcement.  

Dagostino are bringing in expert speakers from the FBI Cyber Division and the Department of Homeland Security as well as case studies from Franklin Regional School District and Mt. Lebanon School District to give you a complete picture on how to keep your students and faculty safe!
