Boca Raton, FL (USA), December 22, 2012 — Schools around the U.S.
have found it difficult to put strong security controls in place
because of lack of funding and resistance by parents and staff, who,
unfortunately, saw physical security controls as too restrictive.
After the recent tragedy in Newtown, CT, it is critically important
that every school do a security threat/risk assessment to see where
their own vulnerabilities may be. (Free-Pr-Online.com)
To address the situtuation and make it easier to do a simple,
effective school security asssessment, Risk and Security LLC (
http://www.riskandsecurityllc.com ) has announced a new School
Security app, which can run on a tablet, smart phone or laptop.
The Risk-Pro for School Security© app is available for only $ 495.00
for non-profit healthcare organizations ($595.00 for others), and
comes with an on-line user guide and free training.
The program is looks at the entire school, addressing areas like
access control, entry controls, and incident response. The program was
developed by Caroline Hamilton with the National Institute of Justice
and Eastern Kentucky University to create an easy way for schools to
use FEMA 428, How to have Safe Schools.
The web 2.0 program, Risk-Pro for School Security©, is affordable and
simple to use. It includes fully-updated threat databases, and
automated web-surveys based on security requirements from FEMA 428.
“With 3-year old twins in my family, I was high motivated to make
sure they are safe at their pre-school, and have fielded calls from
dozens of security professionals who are worried about their
children’s school security posture. The Risk-Pro© model has been
used for easy software applications with the Department of Defense and
over fifty hospitals, health plans and government agencies.
