online & onsite violence, vandalism, & threats

Augmented Behavioral Threat Assessment

With cyber bullying and suicide on the rise within the K-12 environment, Avertere has developed an Augmented  Behavioral Threat Assessment Platform (BTaP) to help identify, assess, and manage individuals that may need some support. We work alongside school staff to help them correlate online behavior, that when combined with onsite behavioral insight can provide early warning indicators and non-punitive intervention.

Specially tailored programs for identifying both Cyber Bullying and Suicide Prevention can be created to meet the needs of schools, as well as providing vital advice and guidance. Access to these services can dramatically reduce incidents of online violence, and onsite threats within educational institutions. This enables a safe learning and teaching environment for students and staff plus provides peace of mind for parents.

Avertere’s BTaP is set to revolutionize K-12 safety measures; it is no longer necessary to wait until after tragedies have occurred before taking action. With this platform in place, we can work towards preventing incidents before they happen.

Cyber Bullying

Avertere can help develop a cyber bullying prevention program that offers victims options for safely reporting, identifying, and deterring potential cyber bullies.

Through our S-SOC we can mitigate a schools social media page take-overs and detect pages that may be used to spread cyber bullying messages and content. By deploying open-source and public domain intelligence techniques, regional sentiments can also be identified.  Should it be requested Avertere has a network of legal teams standing by that can assist in providing the tools needed if any situations require greater scrutiny.

With Avertere's multi-tiered program in place, schools can be sure they're doing all they can to protect students from the harmful consequences of cyberbullying.

Physical security controls

Be On the Lookout Operations

Be on the Lookout Operations (Bolo-Ops) is designed to detect potential human threats without compromising the privacy of staff and students.

Bolo-Ops requires cameras, doors, and other physical security or technical controls to be deployed within an Educational Institution to isolate an onsite threat and reduce the impact on lives. The School Security Operations Center (S-SOC) can leverage these controls to inform and alert the schools in real time, if applicable.

The program requires an assessment of the environment and the current physical security controls capabilities. If the existing hardware doesn’t have the software to meet the security objectives, we can deliver software to achieve resilience in automation, human verification and response.

monitoring drug activity

Drug Detection and Trends Awareness

Avertere’s S-SOC platform can proactively monitor drug activity within a school's geographical region. Any details related to the sales of illegal drugs or related activities can be collected and reported to authorized faculty members and local law enforcement.

Upon a school drug-related incident on campus, the school can provide the S-SOC with information related to the incident to aid in proactively investigating and reducing drug-related threats within a school's jurisdiction.

The information collected provides an opportunity for schools to distribute information about these drug trends, educate and increase awareness within the local community and other educational institutions.

School Security Operations Center

Avertere interviewed hundreds of administrations, faculty members, and parents about the daily challenges schools face. We discovered a common theme: schools buy more technology, assuming that the data would reduce the work burden of finding risks and responding.

On the contrary, they have become overburdened with data from their solutions and risks become buried in the noise. Hence, Avertere has combined physical and digital cybersecurity disciplines into its School Security Operations Center services to meet the unique challenges in the K12 industry.
