Critical and Emergency Alerting’s Increasing Requirement at the Enterprise

At the most recent ASIS 2011 in Orlando, Florida a discernable shift in the market continued to occur. At ASIS 2009, many of the enquiries for critical alerting came from University and College requirements to adhere to the Clery and Higher Education Acts to ensure the safety of students on campus post Virginia Tech.

External threats from disgruntled individuals tend to increase in difficult times.
