Security Plan – how good is your School’s or College’s?

Posted by:

Calling all schools, colleges, academies and educational establishments – how healthy is your security plan?

One of the great things about education in the 21st century is that there is a vast array of technology to help with research, presentation and learning. The challenge that comes with using this technology is keeping it safe. Laptops, iPads and other tablets are all incredibly portable – that is what makes them so appealing and user friendly; it also makes them extremely stealable and easily resaleable.

School securityWhen you couple this with the fact that, as every Tom, Dick or Harry knows, schools are often empty for significant periods of time over weekends and during school holidays, and as they have a large number of access points, you have the ingredients for a potential disaster. The idea of having to close the school following a break in or fire, or the potential liability that comes with not considering the safety of lone workers and what would happen if they were faced with a dangerous situation, is the stuff of nightmares.
