There’s a wide range of meanings that can be ascribed to the word “security” in higher education. From IT Security to physical security to safety and emergency response, many disciplines fall under the term “security”. Schools typically address these issues in an overall operations security policy, which dictates the overall security posture of the organization. The operational security policy covers a variety of assets, including physical assets like chairs, intellectual assets like data, as well as actual people on campus. School officials use the estimated risk they expect people and property to face to determine the appropriate amount of effort required to keep assets (and people) safe. Audio/video professionals need to be aware of the operational security policy of the institution, as systems designs often must address many of these concepts.
