Hurricane Sandy, nicknamed "Frankenstorm," is packing a powerful punch that is expected to wreak havoc across almost 800 miles from the East Coast to the Great Lakes. It is also affecting Security Week, forcing the postponement of all events.
Due to the State of Emergency declared by the Governor of the State of New York and the clear impact and potential danger presented by Hurricane Sandy, ISC Events decided to postpone ISC East. The ISC Team is working with exhibitors, attendees and the Javits Center to try to establish an appropriate future date for the show. Updated information can be found at www.isceast.com.
The Security Industry Association also made the decision to postpone the Securing New Ground conference out of concern for the safety of attendees. The Security 500 has been cancelled as well.
"We will notify registered attendees when new dates are chosen for the event and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause," SIA stated in a press release.
Updated information will also be posted on SIA's website at www.siaonline.org.
Forecasters are currently projecting Sandy could make U.S. landfall on Monday evening or Tuesday somewhere between Maryland and southern New England.
