The future of innovation for policing and security are deeply rooted in the adoption and integration of mobile, wearable and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies.

Associations like the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) are already thinking about frameworks and considerations for adopting these technologies. More exciting, forward-thinking policing forces like NYPD and LAPD are doing active trials of on-body cameras and Google Glass respectively.

On reporting crime, Todd Greene, Founder and CEO of PubNub says, “One key advantage of connected devices is allowing citizens to more easily participate in the law enforcement process.” Guardly is also discussed by Greene, in context of enabling devices to communicate instantly with each other, to let citizens report incidents or emergencies to law enforcement.

  • 8:09 PM

    A car caught fire outside the Macy’s store in the mall, and smoke started entering the mall. At some point, police received calls from people saying they heard loud noises that could have been shots. The sounds were believed to be the car bursting into flames, but shoppers were convinced otherwise at first.

    “It sounded like a gunshot,” one man said. But there was never any concrete evidence of a person shooting, police said. “Nobody saw any gunman. Nobody saw anybody shooting anything,” Police said. But a panic ensued as people began saying they had heard shots fired, and they began storming out in the mall from the Macy’s all the way to the movie theater at the mall.

    “We saw everyone running and panicking towards our way. We didn’t know what to do, so we went into a store,” another man said. Some shoppers ran through the stores shouting a warning. “This woman came running down screaming and shouting: ‘There’s a shooter in the store! Get out! Get out! Get out!’” a woman said.

  • There were two immediate shopper reactions: Those nearest the exits to the parking lots got out as fast as they could, while others inside stores were temporarily locked in — some of them cowering in dressing rooms and restrooms until officers got them out. Police evacuated most of the mall soon afterward, while some stores went into lockdown. A small number of people suffered minor injuries as they slipped and fell in the mall. “We have no gunman. We have no confirmation that there were any shots fired,” Police said.
  • 10 PM

    The mall was closed and police were completing the evacuation process. An investigation into the incident commenced.

How Guardly Could Help Optimize Emergency Communications & Response

The following is a simulated timeline-specific breakdown of how Guardly’s technologies could enhance incident notification, communication & response times, while minimizing the widespread confusion and injuries experienced in this situation:

  • 8:09 PM

    “A car caught fire outside the Macy’s store in the mall, and smoke started entering the mall.”

    The first mall employee to witness the fire takes out their smartphone and triggers a Guardly alert that instantly notifies Security Operations that there is an ongoing emergency, the type of emergency (fire), and the exact indoor location (floor and region) or outdoor location (GPS) of the employee that triggered the alert, which Security can track in real-time for the duration of the alert.

    A Security Operator engages in a 2-way conversation with the employee, determines the cause of the incident, and contacts the fire department. During this conversation, the employee has sent a picture of the fire to the Operator, which he/she will be able to send out to all guards, retail tenants and employees in a mass notification.

    Note: If a second mall employee triggers an alert indicating that there is an active shooter (based only on the gunshot-sounding noises they’ve heard), Security Operations would be able to communicate more effectively with each person (and potentially engage with mall cameras in those locations) to determine the true cause for alarm by these employees – a fire or an active shooter.

  • 8:10 PM

    Mall Security Operator dispatches a response unit to the scene and calls in the Paramus Fire Department.

  • 8:11 PM

    Mall Security Operator sends a secure instant message to the employee to calmly evacuate the premises, and that help is on the way.

  • 8:12 – 8:15 PM

    Mall Security Operator sends geo-targeted mass notifications to guards and mall employees and group-based mass notifications to retail tenants and employess based on their location in the mall informing them that the actual cause was a fire, not a shooter, as well as specific procedural instructions, floor plans with evacuation routes (if applicable to them) and the picture of the fire.

    Since the cause for alarm was a fire outdoors, there need not be a full evacuation of the mall and certain businesses can remain open for business rather than in a lockdown or shelter-in-place procedure – which means no revenue losses need to be incurred by businesses unaffected by the incident. For example, employees in Zone A (closest to fire) are notified first with a message informing them that the emergency is a car fire and directing them to evacuate all employees and customers to a specified area. All other mall employees and tenants are notified second with a message informing them that there is a car fire near Zone A: since they are unaffected, business can carry-on as usual in the rest of the mall.

  • 8:15 – 8:45 PM

    Affected employees and customers are safely evacuated from the premises, and the Fire Department has put out the car fire.

    During this time, replies to the mass notification have been submitted by retail tenants and employees informing the mall Security Operator of any disabled or elderly people the require special help to be evacuated in specific areas of the mall. The reply feature is used here to pinpoint where they are exactly within the mall and responders are sent to those areas to assist in evacuation.

  • 8:45 PM

    With an improved level of communications and emergency response, the mall may in fact be able to forgo an entire mall closure (as previously described), and instead may only need to close off the affected area for investigation purposes. For the investigation process, a complete log of all triggers, events, messages, locations, and timelines has already been automatically generated within the Guardly system and dashboard for Security Operations to easily access via any web browser to assist with the investigation, as well as emergency response preparedness assessments.

Conclusion

Before reviewing the specifics of the areas in which emergency response to this situation could have improved, it’s important to note that for events such as this one, there are many facets that factor into how response to the situation will unfold. These are situations of high magnitude and severity, and while technology is a major part of the overall package, it is not a replacement for education and training in how to respond to an active shooter or other scenarios that may arise at a mall. There is opportunity to align education and training with technology to improve emergency preparedness, readiness and overall incident outcomes in threatening situations.

Areas of Optimization

  1. Estimated time saved: 1 hour and 15 minutes.
  2. By triggering the Guardly alert, the employee was able to notify the Security Operator from their current location – no need to get to a landline or emergency call box – and the Operator was provided with location, critical incident information, and a picture of the event. The Security Operator was then able to notify the fire department faster.
  3. Using mobile mass notification, the Security Operator was able to send curated notifications to retail tenants and employees depending on their locations – reducing confusion, panic, and possibility for injury.
  4. Retail tenants and employees are made aware that the emergency event is a fire and not a shooter, which becomes critically important, as emergency procedures are vastly different for the two situations. If it’s an active shooter scenario, retail tenants and employees generally must engage in lockdown or shelter-in-place procedures, but if the scenario is a fire, they must evacuate the premises immediately.
  5. For post-incident investigation, Guardly’s detailed event logs are instantly accessible from any web browser and from any device.
  6. Less business disruption for the mall tenants and therefore less lost sales.
  7. Less anxiety and potentially less injuries to people.
  8. Increased mall brand enhancement – advanced communications technologies provide the opportunity to “wow” everyone involved in the incident with the mall’s response.

As mentioned, this is our first post in our new Real-World Situation Analysis series! Like you, we’re always learning more about how these situations are handled. We’d love to hear your thoughts. What else could have been done differently to improve outcomes? Have you participated in an active shooter or large-scale fire drill recently and learned something new?

We’ve spruced things up once again at Guardly and today we are excited to unveil some exciting new enhancements to Guardly Command!

Adaptive and Responsive Design

To be successful in security today you need to be where the action is. Legacy tools found in many Security Operations Centers require safety and incident management software to be installed on a desktop computer, and at least one user at a desk monitoring the application. In today’s environment that simply doesn’t cut it. Security teams need to be mobile, in the field, and armed with tools that provide them with the collaboration and flexibility they need to monitor and interact with emergency callers and each other in real-time across a variety of devices.

That’s why we’ve leveraged the latest web application standards to re-engineer Guardly Command and empower security teams both at the office and on the go! We’ve optimized Guardly Command for viewing on desktop, tablet and mobile devices by designing a sleek, intuitive, and powerful interface that is both responsive and adaptive. Users now have the fastest and most consistent experience interacting with Guardly Command, no matter where they are or what type of device they are on.

 

Guardly Command Incident Management System
Fig. 1: Guardly Command with Adaptive and Responsive Design.

 

Key Benefits of the New Design

  • Guardly Command auto-detects the type of device it is being accessed from to provide an optimal viewing experience

  • Enhanced ability to monitor and manage incidents on tablets and smartphones

  • Compose, send and monitor mass notifications from tablets and smartphones

  • Compatible across a wide range of devices – new and old (e.g. desktop, tablets, mobile)

  • Consistent, clean and simple look and feel

  • Better overall performance and speed

 

Mobile Mass Notification System

But that’s not all! From working closely with many of our customers we understand that compliance and standard operating procedures continue to play a significant role in security. That’s why Guardly’s Mobile Mass Notification System (MMNS) supports data export and exchange standards such as Common Alerting Protocol (CAP-compliant).

We also understand that every security department has its own standard operating procedures outlining the tasks, communication roadmaps, and protocols for dealing with certain types of incidents and/or emergencies. That’s why we’ve added the ability for Security Administrators to easily create, save and clone mass notification templates, and review MMNS notification history in Guardly Command. We did this to help our customers improve their emergency preparedness procedures, and reduce the time it takes when a real emergency strikes. Through the use of MMNS templates, Security Administrators can pre-define messages and communication audiences for specific events, which can be quickly accessed and sent in the event of an emergency.

mobile cloud white paper corporate security

Mobile technologies are creating seismic industrial shifts – even in some of the most deeply entrenched traditional industries – at a pace that has “not been seen since the Industrial Revolution” says Simon Khalaf, CEO of Flurry Analytics.

We couldn’t agree more with Mr. Khalaf at Guardly, and in a new white paper being released today, we take his assessment one step further by analyzing the industrial transformation caused by both mobile and cloud technologies, and then take a deeper look into how these technologies are improving existing corporate security practices.

To find out more about what you’ll learn in this white paper, below is an excerpt from the Executive Summary:

Mobile technologies have a substantial track record of completely uprooting existing industries, leaving incumbent vendors scrambling, and rewarding those that innovate to embrace mobile. Convenience, simplicity, location and timesaving efficiencies are often at the core of mobile value propositions that transform industries.

Migration of data and services into the cloud is reshaping the physical security industry by (1) shifting upfront capital expenditures to recurring subscription fees for cloud services, (2) hosting applications with third-party service providers that were once confined to on-premise servers, and (3) security data archives once residing within on-premise storage devices now reside in service-provider data storage in the cloud.

Industry-leading organizations that fail to keep up with technological advancements are becoming obsolete, while the enterprises that embrace these powerful tools and make them part of their corporate culture, will continue to benefit from all the efficiencies and cost savings provided by mobility and the cloud moving forward, and will outperform their counterparts in more technologically-stagnant organizations.

This white paper analyzes the ways in which mobile and cloud-based technology solutions can augment and improve upon existing corporate security functions in a global context.

Real-Time Enterprise Employee SafetyFunding and Customer Wins Underscore Importance of Mobile and Cloud Platform to Future of Enterprise Security

Toronto, Canada – January 29, 2014 – Guardly, a leading provider of enterprise-grade mobile safety solutions, has raised $1.45 million in seed financing to expand on its recent success delivering real-time mobile and cloud-based employee safety solutions to enterprise organizations.

The new funds will be used to further accelerate product innovation and to support a growing sales and customer success team. The financing was led by San Francisco-based Freestyle Capital, with participation from Golden Venture Partners and MaRS Investment Accelerator Fund. To date, Guardly’s solutions have been licensed by enterprise clients for use by over 430,000 end users such as employees or students that its clients have a duty to safeguard.

Employee safety is currently a top priority for most corporate security and environmental health and safety (EHS) leaders – this includes safety in the workplace, in remote areas, and while travelling internationally. Guardly’s mobile safety solutions are often sought out by its clients to help mitigate organizational risks associated with workplace violence, remote worker safety and corporate travel safety. To ensure Guardly’s mobile safety apps are effective in as many situations as possible, the company has captured and analyzed over 2 million (non-personally identifiable) data points on how its mobile apps are used in over 4,500 real-world situations and simulations. Guardly has also taken careful measures to ensure end-to-end security of all user data, and to address privacy concerns over employee location tracking and data access.

“Recent success at Guardly has been driven by our commitment to delivering mobile safety solutions that are first-to-market and that outperform alternatives by orders of magnitude – 10X improvements or greater – with key initial emphases placed on emergency alert origination capabilities, location tracking accuracy and incident response efficiency,” said Josh Sookman, Guardly CEO.

Guardly has placed specific focus on these areas to improve upon many of the functional issues and risks that legacy technology solutions pose on their users and customers, such as:

  • Not having any mobile device capable of two-way crisis communication and notification
  • The need to charge and carry secondary devices to initiate emergency alerts
  • Having to seek out fixed emergency help points when time is of the essence
  • Inaccurate or non-existent GPS or indoor location data
  • Location data being provided to security operations too late
  • Significant delays with third-party managed services reporting incidents to corporate security

The most innovative security leaders have already deployed security measures with mobile and cloud-based components. To help the larger majority of security leaders improve their understanding and education of these technologies, Guardly released a white paper entitled Emerging Landscape of Mobile and Cloud Technologies in Corporate Security (January 2014). The white paper provides technology definitions, outlines emerging trends and highlights innovative vendor solutions.
