and University Campus Security
Many factors contribute to improved
security on school and university campuses. Environmental, physical,
and protective measures are instrumental, yet the human element
is most critical. Are potential acts of violence recognizable before
they happen? In almost all cases, yes. The question is how to observe
the factors that lead up to such acts.
IRI specialists are well
versed in all aspects of institutional and personal security. School
violence falls in the spectrum of workplace violence, and there
are situational indicators that can help avert and thwart threats
before they escalate into successful acts. IRI calls its
program ATM, or Avert, Thwart, and Minimize. For more info about

Intellectual Property Protection
A school’s intellectual property, including patents, trademarks,
copyrights and research, is one
of its greatest assets.
The more valuable a school's intellectual property is the more
vulnerable it is to misuse and theft.
We provide you with a complete assessment of the intellectual property
risks you face, then recommend, and implement programs to reduce
vulnerability. IRI has developed a unique program called:
- Information Management & Control
This program focuses on intra-campus communications addressing vulnerabilities
associated with intellectual property abuse. Contact us for a white
