ISC East 2022, held Nov. 15-17 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, will feature a pair of keynote addresses focusing on “NFL Perspectives on Cybersecurity and Organizational Resilience.”

National Football League stadiums are leveraging venue technologies and other digital innovations to optimize the fan experience and strengthen security operations and public safety. Managing the cybersecurity function for new technology services and enhancements deployed across 30 stadiums requires a strategic and converged approach to organizational resilience.

The 2022 SIA Education@ISC East Keynote Series will feature NFL CISO Tomás Maldonado and MetLife Stadium Vice President of Stadium Technology Ryan McKenzie. On Nov. 16 (2-3 p.m.), they will offer expert insights and best practices to help security professionals anticipate, mitigate and respond to the risks and threats associated with today’s digital transformation and integrated technology systems used to support event operations.

The session is open to all ISC East attendees.

“ISC East is thrilled to welcome Tomás Maldonado and Ryan McKenzie as our 2022 keynote speakers; as we know, organizations today must take a more converged approach when implementing security solutions, and their expertise in cybersecurity and technology services will provide valuable insights to our attendees and assist security professionals in anticipating and responding to potential threats,” said Mary Beth Shaughnessy, RX Global Event Director, ISC Security Events.

The ASIS NYC Chapter Person of the Year Lunch, held Nov. 16, will kick off with featured speaker, John Miller, chief law enforcement and intelligence analyst at CNN. Along with his prior law enforcement career, Miller has worked in journalism as a senior correspondent for CBS News reporting for CBS This Morning and CBS Evening News for 60 Minutes. He is the winner of the DuPont Silver Baton, two Peabody Awards and 11 Emmys.

Miller is also a former ABC News correspondent and anchor, perhaps best known for conducting a May 1998 interview with Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan. He is the co-author of the New York Times bestseller “The Cell: Inside the 9/11 plot” (Hyperion, 2002).

In addition to the keynotes, ISC East attendees may purchase conference passes to gain access to over 30 education sessions through the SIA Education@ISC conference program. The 2022 program (Nov. 16-17) will offer all-new content on the most current business trends and technologies and latest developments, according to an announcement. Subject matter experts will cover topics such as artificial intelligence (AI), crisis communication, uncrewed systems, physical security and more.

In addition to the main educational programming, SIA will offer two essential trainings on Nov. 15:

  • SIA Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) Boot Camp is an in-depth training on how to design, configure and deploy modern, interoperable, OSDP-compliant access control systems;
  • the new Security Industry Cybersecurity Certification (SICC) Review Course is designed to help attendees prepare to earn the SICC, the security industry’s first credential specifically focused on cybersecurity and physical security convergence.

“The SIA Education@ISC East conference program offers a robust variety of dynamic sessions exploring the interplay between physical security, cybersecurity and business continuity,” said Dr. Elli Voorhees, director of learning and development at SIA. “This year’s program — incorporating a mix of interactive panels, use case studies and technical instruction — takes a full-ecosystem approach and brings security practitioners together with solution providers to exchange ideas, address challenges, share expert insights and find innovative ways to move the industry forward.”

ISC East is produced by RX Global and hosted in collaboration with premier sponsor Security Industry Association (SIA) and in partnership with ASIS NYC.
