With high school shootings and disgruntled employee violence on the rise, companies are understandably concerned about safety. And while protection against violent individuals is essentially impossible to secure via legislation, it can be done reasonably well on a facility-by-facility basis.

With that in mind, EC&M introduces a new correspondence course on security, access, and crime prevention, instructed by Datacom Consultant Paul Rosenberg.

This class will cover not only the theories and common applications of video monitoring, alarm, and access systems, but will also show you how to combine technologies into strategies for protecting personnel from violence.
