Free Webinar – Security & Communication for Major Incidents in Education

The need to overcome potential security threats in the education sector is now a vital consideration.

Whilst the most severe attacks are still relatively rare, it is vital appropriate plans and procedures are in place – these may help to overcome a variety of other incidents too. 

The first part of this free to attend webinar, presented by the highly respected security expert Tom Huntley, will help education professionals understand major incident security and practical measures that can be employed to deter, detect, deny, delay and defeat – the 5D’s principle.

Communication is a key element in the 5D approach but evolving threats now need evolving communications. In the second part of the webinar we present effective emergency communication planning and how the Callmy Alert solution is helping the Education sector communicate in a crisis.

The webinar takes place at 14.30 on Tuesday 2 October. Please click HERE for more details and to register.

University of Reading Deploy Callmy Alert

Supporting the delivery of critical communications and security procedures, the University of Reading are deploying Callmy Alert.

The University has over 17,000 students based on three main sites in the UK and an international campus in Malaysia. In order to deliver critical communications and the reassurances of a secure environment, the University selected Callmy Alert based on its ease of use and cost effective deployment. It was also felt that a service with an end user app would suit the student demographic whilst also, and most importantly, ensure a faster response than using conventional forms of messaging.

“We are delighted the University of Reading are deploying the Callmy Alert service” comments Tony Watson, CEO of Callmy Ltd, ” and we look forward to supporting their successful deployment over the coming months”.
