Security Infrastructure & Response, Records Management, Auditing, Maintenance and Monitoring (RAMM) Program

IRM’s Security Infrastructure Services Team is responsible for planning, designing, installing and managing the array of security systems infrastructure on campus.  The team is responsible for building perimeter systems and client systems, both of which can include card readers, door contact alarms, locking automation, motion detectors, security cameras and other devices.

Security Infrastructure Services works with building design project groups and Ryerson departments to provide risk based infrastructure planning, installation project management, and ongoing infrastructure support and management.

Security infrastructure is critical in supporting safety, security and access management on campus.  Security infrastructure consists of base building and perimeter infrastructure and department funded infrastructure, designed to meet business needs and risk assessments.  The recommended infrastructure is subsequently installed and managed through the services provided by IRM, in accordance with the internal responsibility system.  Cabling, conduit and door hardware are provided by other departments’ at Ryerson who work closely with Security Infrastructure Services to build complete security systems.

RAMM Program

The ongoing management of security infrastructure requires the RAMM Program (Response, records management, Auditing, Maintenance and Monitoring) service package to ensure that Ryerson’s security infrastructure is risk based, supported, life-cycle planned, financially reasonable and sustainable, compliant and integrated with other systems, processes and procedures where appropriate.

Integrated Risk Management provides the RAMM program as part of the university’s risk management measures, helping to ensure that security infrastructure is properly audited, maintained, monitored and responded to, and that the equipment and resulting records are integrated within the policy frameworks of the EHS Management System Policy, the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Policy, the Records Management Policy, the Information Protection Policy and the Access Control Policy.  The RAMM program also helps ensure that Ryerson’s security infrastructure is technologically and operationally integrated into other security risk mitigation measures in use at Ryerson.  All RAMM program elements are necessary to ensure this, and as a consequence, the RAMM program is both necessary to support all security infrastructure on campus and is only offered as a complete service package.

Further, centralizing these services across campus through the RAMM program creates economies of scale which support competitive pricing while still maintaining Ryerson’s high standards for safety and security.  We are pleased to report that through the RAMM program, there have been no increases in per-device support costs to our clients in over six years.
