Alex Henson, chief information officer of the 32,000-student, urban Virginia Commonwealth University, discusses how the university and Cisco worked to improve the digital aspect of physical security — connected security cameras and instant communication platforms. Cisco and its ecosystem partners' safer campus solution has increased safety, led to a drop in campus crime and helped informed students about tornadoes near campus after Hurricane Florence. Shannon Leininger, a VP of public sector and education at Cisco, credits VCU's success by creating a holistic safety solution.
