About alert procedures

When a user enters text on a device with the Smoothwall Monitor client installed, the text is captured and analysed by the moderating artificial intelligence, which decides the risk category and level. If the capture falls into a risk category and level, the moderating team raise an event alert. If the capture falls into a risk category and level that requires it, the moderating team raise an event in Monitor, email all the safeguarding officers and phone the school to draw their attention to a serious incident.

For your alert procedure to work you need to ensure that all your safeguarding contacts details are kept up to date.
