Free Webinar: Crowdsourcing Security with Anonymous Tipping Systems
LEESBURG, Va., Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Finding practical ways to enhance campus security without large add-on costs is a continuing challenge for schools. Anonymous tipping systems offer a powerful tool to rapidly and affordably boost security by leveraging a near-ubiquitous technology on today’s campus – the cell phone. College administrators, campus safety directors, and CTOs are invited to learn more in a free webinar on Wednesday, December 12(th), at 1:00 p.m. EST entitled “Crowdsourcing Security: Implementing an Anonymous Tipping System.”
Peter Ossmann, assistant director of emergency management at Siena Heights University (SHU) will discuss the experiences and lessons his school has learned over the course of two years with uTip, an anonymous tipping system that utilizes text messaging, the web, and printed posters.
“The tipping system we chose to implement offers us an important communication link from students to the administration,” Ossmann says. “We’ve learned a lot over the last two years, including new and innovative uses for our system and I’m anxious to share that with others.”
Ossmann will discuss the steps SHU took to evaluate and implement a system, and then build recognition among students and faculty to promote its use. SHU also uses the system to offer a unique customer service feature during events, an aspect that Ossmann will cover as well.
