NORTH PROVIDENCE, R.I., Jan. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SecurityRI, a leading full-service IT security company specializing in providing comprehensive security strategies to protect businesses of all sizes, teamed up with Overbrook Academy, an accredited, international boarding school for girls, to provide protection from data breaches and any vulnerabilities to their students and faculty during the relocation of the academy. A breach can happen to any organization at any time. The ITRC Data Breach Reports-2015 Year-End Totals Report states, in 2015 alone, over 169 million personal records were exposed, stemming from 781 publicized breaches across the financial, business, education, government, and healthcare sectors.
"We were tasked with the safe relocation of the academy's network and server room, installation of roaming Wi-Fi and a surveillance system throughout the new campus, the set-up of two computer labs and all staff and resident computers, as well as several other assignments," said Marc Ranaldi, CIO of SecurityRI. SecurityRI's methodology for projects starts with a full diagnostic and strategic planning approach that involves the identification of all vulnerabilities that need to be addressed and monitored for safety. The process allows for proper planning and design and ensures protection of confidential data and credentials. All SecurityRI's clients' information is stored in encrypted, secure cloud based data bases, with roles and permissions strictly granted.
"When the decision was made to relocate the school, we were concerned on how we could keep the school functional during the process while maintaining and assuring the safety of our students," said Kelly Carello, assistant business manager at Overbrook Academy. "From initial evaluation, to the setup of our secure access control system, all computers, iPads and monitoring systems, the transition to our new location was flawless." SecurityRI's full audit of the academy's network design allowed them to properly architect the new network as well as setup and run a full parallel network before the move date providing a seamless transition with zero downtime during the transition.
"Evaluation of the new campus exposed the need for complete rewiring of the location to be network and camera installation ready and provide a quicker installation of the complete surveillance system once onsite," said Ranaldi. "The day of the move, our security officers assisted in the safe transport of servers and watched over all areas of the campus while proper installation of fire and safety monitoring was installed and tested. We are committed to designing custom security solutions that fits our customer's needs. With the integration of technology and superior security officer services, we were able to provide a complete security solution that gave Overbrook Academy's directive team peace of mind and allowed them to focus on their students and the school," Ranaldi concludes.
