Dear William & Mary Community,
Following up on last week’s message, Rave Mobile Security reports that its data centers and the Rave Guardian app continue working normally after Friday’s global cyberattack. The app, which allows members of campus to report emergencies from their mobile devices, is functioning properly and we encourage you to resume using it.
Rave continues to improve its protections against potential cyber threats. As noted in Saturday’s message, our mass notification system through Rave was not affected and also continues to function properly.
If you have not done so, please download the Rave Guardian app, which works like an emergency “blue phone” in your pocket and offers a number of safety functions, including the ability to set a timer if you are alone or in an unfamiliar place, so that friends, police or others you trust will be notified if you are late.
You can also report any emergency by dialing 911 or calling William & Mary Police directly at 221-4596.
Sam Jones, Chair
W&M Emergency Management Team
