With the increase of crime in many of our communities, it is important to secure the school’s ICT resources. Consider whether all of the following are in place in your school:
The ceiling: a favourite entry point for criminals – if your ceiling is not made of concrete, reinforce it with steel mesh.
The walls: if not made of brick and mortar, they must be built up to enhance security.
The windows: must be secured – a minimum requirement is strong burglar bars.
The door: a steel safe door, or a steel security cage, should protect the entrance to your school’s computer room.
An alarm system: with motion detection equipment must be installed to protect valuable ICT resources.
