Share Article

Securly, the leading student safety company, announces a free student safety audit for 130,000 schools across the United States.

"Securly has uncovered one serious incident for every 125 students covered by 24 by Securly."

Securly, the leading student safety company, announces to school districts across the United States, a free audit of the entire school district’s online student safety and wellness. This audit provides school districts with the same professional review of their school networks as paid customers of 24 by Securly.

Securly’s Filter and Auditor products allow the school district to monitor what kids are searching for on Google, saying to each other on Facebook, Twitter or email, watching on YouTube, and browsing on the web. Filter and Auditor not only monitor and log activity, but also use sentiment analysis AI algorithms to scan and flag messages from students’ emails, web searches, social media posts, and other content for signs of self-harm, bullying, violence, and suicidal thoughts. Once flagged, trained student safety analysts from the “24” operations team review and assess the messages for imminent danger of student distress. Alerts flagged by analysts as moderate to high risk are alerted to school districts with an email notification. When an alert is identified as extreme-risk, Securly’s analysts call and text designated contacts from the district to alert them of the situation - enabling districts to intervene in real-time and in some cases, save a student’s life.

School districts participating in the free audit will first be set up with Securly’s free Filter and Auditor products. After this, student safety analysts from the 24 team will compile a customized report for the school district showing up to 30 days of student safety risks found - including cyberbullying, self-harm, violence, and abuse. Finally, one of Securly’s student safety experts will schedule a call with the district to review the report and answer any questions the district may have.

Below are examples of extreme-risk alerts that 24 by Securly has found in participating districts.

“painless way to die”
“suicide method with 100% success rate”
“how to write a suicide note to my mom”
“the right way to cut my wrist”
“how to hide a body”
“how to make a bomb”

“So far this school year, Securly has uncovered one serious incident for every 125 students covered by 24 by Securly,” says Kathleen Boehle, Securly’s Director of 24x7 Student Safety Operations.

Vinay Mahadik, co-founder and CEO of Securly, adds, “May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and we were wondering how Securly could give school districts visibility into how bad the situation is out there, and show how technology can help preempt the next severe incident. The student safety audit is Securly’s attempt at letting all the school districts across the country experience how human-assisted AI can keep their students safe.”

School districts receive the student safety assessment for free, including a report and a call to review the findings with Securly’s student safety experts. The school districts can also use the free Filter and Auditor products after the audit, and benefit from the same AI algorithms used to generate the report.
