Back to School Safety Tip #3 (Courtesy of DMP): It’s important to inform your children that it is NEVER safe to answer the door while home alone. So, when you need to see who is at your door, cameras can add an extra layer of security for you and your child. Teach your kids how to view cameras from their smart phone.
We take network and data security seriously
Cyber security is a hot topic. Daily news is regularly peppered with stories about data compromise, an expensive proposition to businesses and corporations across the globe. In fact, the average annualized cost of cybercrime in 2015 was $15 million, representing nearly a 20 percent increase year over year and an 82 percent increase since the Ponemon Institute’s Cost of Cyber Crime Study was created some seven years ago. In addition, the need for data security is ranked as the top priority for investing in IT funding by 70 percent of companies surveyed by IDG Research Services for a recent Datalink report. Seventy-five percent of organizations consider IT security more important today than just two years ago and 74 percent have security projects in the works.
As summer vacation comes to an end and kids head back to school, now is a good time to incorporate added safety precautions into your family’s new routine. Back to School Safety Tip #1: Using the #geofencing feature in your DMP Virtual Keypad App, set up a Geofence around your child’s school. You’ll receive a cell phone alert notifying you that your child got to school safely, as well as what time he or she leaves each afternoon. Then, do the same for your house.
