Communication Monitoring: Campus Security

Communication Monitoring and social media monitoring provide vital intelligence for campus safety and security.

Campus Safety and Security Communication Monitoring is the key to help with prevention for the following scenario:

It’s 24 hours after “the incident”, his Facebook pictures are plastered all over the press.

They say he made threats and posted violent and hateful stuff on social media.

Student after student in interview after interview, say: “I knew he was going to do something, he posted this, he sent this message… he said all types of nasty things and made all types of threats.”

Why didn’t anyone do anything?

You’re back at your desk wondering, how could we prevent the next one.

So, what is being done today, with Communication Monitoring?

Social media monitoring is hard. It requires extremely specialized skills, no one is going to watch a video on Youtube and master it.

Lately public social media monitoring hasn’t gotten easier, it’s gotten harder. Why?

1Students don’t normally post on Facebook and Twitter they use Snapchat and Instagram, that makes it nearly impossible to see and save posts.

2Messages last seconds, not days or weeks.

3Facebook and Twitter privacy settings make it even harder for systems to find information, you can only monitor public postings.

4So much data, so many posts, so many false positives, makes it hard to credibly sift through the noise.

Public social media monitoring is hard, but it may be worth it.

Communication Monitoring happens as well in your school with your school’s internal communication/social networking tools.

Great communications and private social networking tools, like Kornukopia IDentifyED’s social suite provide social-media-like communications tools for schools.

The difference between them and Facebook?

Simply stated are:

  • Your school owns the communication data, not Facebook.
  • Your school controls the student’s privacy, not some hollow promise.
  • Your school controls authentication, your students and instructors know who they are talking to.
  • No advertising.
  • No one sells your students private information.
  • You can audit and monitor data communications, so you can protect the instructors, students and the school’s reputation.

Why doesn’t my school have communication monitoring?

1Some schools have paid for social media monitoring, there are service provider who can provide these reports.

2Most school provide some type of communication infrastructure, usually it’s pretty limited but most tools don’t allow for monitoring and auditing of communications with real reporting.

IDentifyED’s Visitor Management the next evolution in campus security.

Visitor Management is not a new concept, as a matter of fact it may be one of the very first processes that were established 1000s of years ago. However, the ability to manage and monitor a visitor with a paperless system as they make a visit, the ability to verify whether a visitor has any issues with their criminal record in a way that does not expose the visitor or the enterprise with privacy risks is new. These significant changes are the difference between allowing a visitor to make a monitored and managed visits with visitor validation on to your campus and allowing a sex offender free range to your students.
