From 1971-2012, there have been more than 120 school shootings, and 279 people have lost their lives in those shootings, including students, administrators, teachers and staff.  K-12 schools accounted for 82 of those school shootings.

More than 1 million students rely on the Los Angeles School Police Department every day to ensure they have a safe learning environment. But when active shooter and school violence incidents dominate headlines, it’s up to the whole school district to boost security measures and take action, either in drills, training, technology or procedure.

According to Steve Zipperman, Chief of Police for the Los Angeles School Police Department, and Timothy Anderson, the Deputy Chief, the Sandy Hook Elementary School did most was mostly on-target for school security – their law enforcement and school safety tactics were sound and viable, but active shooter incidents continue to occur.

Additionally, the average law enforcement response time is 10 minutes, but average active shooter incidents last between five and eight minutes. The goal of this webinar is to give school security personnel and administrators the tools to devise plans and programs for students and staff to hold on and stay safe until law enforcement can arrive.

Five lessons from this webinar and presentation include:

1.       Identify steps to improve pre-incident preparation and threat assessment

2.       Identify the difference between a Lockdown situation and an Active Shooter scenario

3.       Identify steps necessary to effect a rapid relocation

4.       Identify expectations and law enforcement response during an active shooter event

5.       Identify next steps to improve campus safety and security.

To learn more about these steps, as well as drills, public-private partnerships, tabletop exercises and best practices, please view the archived webinar at webinars.securitymagazine.com or webinars.sdmmag.com

Virtualization and Data Center Security: What You Need to Know for 2014

Data centers are increasingly becoming the center of the enterprise, and data center and cyber security is following the same path for security departments. According to Justin Flynn, a consultant at the Burwood Group, the virtualization of data centers allows enterprises to scale more easily and faster, with a smaller footprint.

However, hosting enterprise data in the cloud can make intrusion detection more difficult – how can enterprise security leaders team up with other departments to keep aware of cyber risks and traffic, and physical and data compliance during the virtual transition? How can CISOs and CSOs discuss cyber threats with the C-Suite to get the resources they need? And how can the proper infrastructure test and verify possible malicious attacks?
