Update on physical security technology

Dear Colleagues,

In keeping with a broader Wake Forest security initiative, the Deacon OneCard office, a division of Residence Life and Housing, has been charged with oversight responsibility for physical security technology, including the selection, purchase, installation, maintenance and operation of card readers, cameras, and alarm devices.

Offices with upcoming physical security technology projects or needs should contact James Byrd in the Deacon OneCard office.  James will also be contacting appropriate offices directly to discuss steps that would better integrate those offices’ existing physical security technology with more extensive technology systems on campus.

Deacon OneCard will be advised by a team that includes Donna McGalliard, dean of Residence Life and Housing; Nancy Crouch, deputy chief information officer, Information Systems; Joel Garmon, director of information security, Legal; Regina Lawson, police chief; and Dina Marty, counsel, Legal.  James Byrd will serve as team leader.

We are confident that this central oversight approach will improve the functionality and compatibility of the Reynolda campus physical security technology and best safeguard the people, assets, and information at Wake Forest.  Your cooperation and assistance are greatly appreciated.
