AMAG Technology, Torrance, Calif., an access control, IP video and intrusion management security solution provider, hosted its 10th annual Security Engineering Symposium in Dana Point, Calif., at the St. Regis Resort February 20-23, 2011. Nearly 70 engineers throughout the United States attended the event.
Highlights included educational presentations from eight sponsors: DAP/Hawkeye, HID, Ingersoll Rand, Intransa, NEC, SALTO, Stentofon and Winsted. In addition to speaking to the whole audience, each sponsor conducted a break-out session which featured a more in-depth and hands-on look at their product line.
Roger Roehr, an HSPD-12 Physical Security Engineer from Roehr Consulting presented, “HSPD-12, SP 800-116 & FICAM” as the keynote speech. Roehr’s core competencies are in the design, installation, and maintenance of electronic physical security, security video and access control systems.
“We are thrilled to have hosted our 10th annual symposium,” said AMAG’s director of business development, Jody Ross. “The event allows engineers to take full advantage of the product and industry knowledge presented to them throughout the week, and it also offers many opportunities to network and exchange ideas about industry trends.”
The attending consultants and engineers were provided the opportunity to operate AMAG’s Symmetry Security Management System V7 with intrusion management and see how it integrates with each of the eight partners who participated in the SES. They also learned about AMAG’s product roadmap and international presence.
“The event is educational, has good quality partners speaking and the accommodations are fantastic,” said Applied Risk Management vice president, Roger Rueda. “The audience is appropriate in that with only consultants in attendance, we can speak frankly and ask questions that might be common among all of the attendees, which enhances the level of education the conference provides.”
