Now in its second year, Security Week will once again bring four diverse, yet interrelated, security events together in NYC. The week opens on Tuesday, Oct. 30 with ISC East (Oct. 30-31) at the Javits Center and the Security Week Gala (Oct. 30) at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers, followed by the Security 500 (Nov. 1) and Securing New Ground (Nov. 1-2) conferences at the Conrad Hotel. The four events combined attract end users, C-level executives, manufacturers, dealers, distributors, integrators and investors.

ISC East will feature more than 200 exhibitors showcasing new products, technologies and services. For dealers, installers, integrators, and specifiers, the event will focus on retro-fitting and updating to increase profits. For end users, achieving business optimization is the main theme. Both concepts will be supported by key exhibitors and free education. SIA Education @ ISC East delivers high-quality, commercial-free information and insight into the most relevant new products, technologies and strategies in today’s evolving security market — and their application in commercial, residential, institutional and public settings.

The 2012 SIA Security Week Gala will recognize the achievements and contributions of security industry leaders. This year’s George R. Lippert Memorial Award will be presented to Bill Bozeman, president and chief executive officer of PSA Security Network. Rep. Peter King (R-NY), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, will receive the Fred V. Morrone 9/11 Memorial Award. 

Securing New Ground will provide insightful presentations and discussions by industry thought leaders, productive sessions and networking opportunities where attendees can interact with their peers and with attendees of the Security 500. This event brings C-level security executives and end users of technology together in a dynamic environment. All attendees will receive the 2012 Securing New Ground Annual Report. 

Attendees of the Security 500 will have the opportunity to share strategies, solutions and challenges on enterprise security issues with peers and participate in and discuss how security leaders are becoming involved in overall organizational performance. Presentations will be offered by Barry Nixon, executive director of the National Institute for the Prevention of Workplace Violence, and Mark McCourt, author of the Security 500, who will present for the first time the 2012 Security 500.
