From supply chain issues to pivots in operational strategy, the electronic security industry saw a myriad of new trends in 2021. As many organizations remained focused on operational recovery, new challenges continued to impact the way decision makers purchased and planned their electronic security technology.
If 2021 was the year of COVID-driven security solutions, 2022 will be all about addressing the “new normal.” While we are not out of the woods yet, organizations that make use of technologies with multiple applications will be the ones to find electronic security success.

With the recent influx of smash-and-grab ATM thefts snowballing throughout the U.S., it has become clear that companies must be prepared to combat both present and future security threats. We are still decades away from the in-person banking experience becoming obsolete, so companies need to have the proper technology in place now if they have any chance of keeping their assets safe and secure in the future.
If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is that we do not know what the future holds. It is key that hospitals possess the necessary security technology to protect patients during the pandemic and beyond. Regardless of the situation, vulnerable individuals depend on healthcare providers to keep them safe and secure.
My name is Ellie Dootson, and I am a Scotland-born, Houston-raised incoming senior at Trinity University. My journey with 3Sixty Integrated began through Students + Startups, which is a program that pairs college students with local small businesses and startups in the San Antonio area.

With the ARP ESSER III deadline fastly approaching, school districts remain focused on the same goal: reopening schools safely, sustaining secure operations, and addressing the impact of the pandemic on students. The CDC’s most recent announcement goes hand in hand with these school districts’ desires.
The ARP ESSER III Grant has provided school districts with the funds to sustain safe campus operations in a post-COVID world. With such a large amount of funds available, many school districts are looking inward and are working to strengthen their campus security. This is where a service and maintenance agreement comes in.
The 2020-2023 American Rescue Plan (ARP) Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) III Grant provides school districts with the funds to reopen schools safely, sustain safe operations, and address the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
What many school districts do not realize is that they can use their ARP ESSER III funds to ensure that their current security system is operating reliably and effectively through a service and maintenance agreement.
