Eastern DataComm Hosting Three Upcoming Seminars to Discuss Protecting Your Students and Staff Through Emergency Event Communications and Network Safety

Hackensack, NJ, March 02, 2016 --(PR.com)-- Eastern DataComm, along with Pascack Data Services and Dell, announced they are hosting three seminars in March and April aimed at protecting students and staff by improving emergency communications for school districts and municipalities, as well as understanding security trends and the tools available for network security.

The seminars will be held at three different locations in New Jersey, and are scheduled for 11am – 1:30pm on Wednesday, March 16th in Hackensack, NJ, Thursday March 31st in Bridgewater, NJ and Wednesday, April 6th in Princeton, NJ. Lunch will be served at the events.

The seminars aim to educate school administrators, municipal leaders, law enforcement and IT personnel on improving overall communications for a lockdown or other emergency event, and ways to better protect students, staff and teachers. The discussion will include safety concerns within school districts and municipalities, and the technologies that can solve these challenges.

In addition, Pascack Data Services and Dell will discuss security solutions for one-to-one initiatives as well as how to effectively manage security for students and teachers bringing their own devices to school (BYOD). Dell Security Experts will have a live demonstration on managing and conquering hackers and other network attacks.

“Through working with schools and municipalities for the last 15 years on their communication solutions, we knew administrators were looking for ways to immediately and automatically notify everyone on school and building grounds that an emergency event has commenced,” says Paul Jenne, Sales Manager at Eastern DataComm. “Our solution enables those administrators to execute the policies and procedures that they have successfully developed. We are excited to be able to share our system as well as safety tips with the attendees.”

At the recent Techspo event in Atlantic City, Howard Adler, President of Pascack Data explained, “As more school districts and municipalities deploy one to one initiatives and wireless solutions, exposure to network threats increase exponentially. Adding to that problem, highly sophisticated malware is relentlessly evolving and most firewalls don’t check SSL traffic, which can be up to 50% of your internet usage. Now you have a disaster waiting to happen.” Howard and a team of Security Experts from Dell will review some of these new threats and some options on how to prevent them.

Eastern DataComm will also demo their Lockdown and Emergency Notification System (LENS) - a comprehensive system that fully addresses what a school district or municipality needs in case of an emergency.

There is no cost to attend, but registration is required. Those wishing to attend can view the complete seminar details and register on the Eastern DataComm website.
