The Security Industry Association (SIA) has announced the 2022 schedule, speaker lineup and program for Securing New Ground (SNG), a conference for security industry executives, taking place Oct. 18-19 at the Intercontinental Times Square in New York City. 

At SNG 2022, the security industry will gather for top-level information sharing, networking and business analysis. 

This year’s Securing New Ground conference will shape industry trends and offer opportunities to engage with the leaders who are driving the future of security, according to the announcement.
