ISC West Session March 28 Focuses on “The Converged Campus – Integrating Security Technologies the Right Way”

CARMEL, IN, March 23, 2012– Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies, a leading global provider of security and safety solutions and manufacturer of Schlage® contactless smart credentials and readers, will, along with three other organizations, provide a panel presentation that identifies the advantages and best practices for assessing, planning and deploying various campus solutions as undertaken at the University of San Francisco.

At the 4:00-5:00 p.m. session, to be held Wednesday, March 28 at the ISC West Exposition in Las Vegas, panelists will include Jason Rossi, University of San Francisco (USF) director of one card and campus security systems; Charlie Sasso, Ingersoll Rand Security Technologies business development manager, education market; Mat Birnbaum, CBORD Group director, integrated security solutions; and John Convy, BRS Labs senior vice president, strategic alliances.

“With the rapid growth in demand for comprehensive campus security, organizations are learning the benefits of an integrated, campus-wide strategy,” explains Sasso. “An integrated systems approach to strategic security investments is yielding greater protection, response capabilities, ease of management and efficiency in investment dollars for the University of San Francisco.”

According to Sasso, USF’s systems approach is able to integrate all aspects of a physical security solution including campus card programs, biometrics, access control, video surveillance systems, and incident response and notification systems. In this session, participants learn how to maximize their security investments to increase situational awareness across systems, departments and facilities. Participants will learn how USF chose such a convergence model to increase crime prevention, respond to incidents in progress with as much information as possible, alert the community when incidents are in progress through an effective, multi-layer approach and to improve their investigative tools.

Participants also will be encouraged to share their ideas for security-enhancing technology partnerships that benefit their organizations.

Location for the session will be posted in the ISC West Guide, available at the show.
