Emotions were running high on the last day of Connect 2018, held Nov. 15-17 at a resort in Marco Island, Fla. At the awards banquet, speeches were made, videos watched and the always anticipated reveal of where next year’s event would be held was unveiled. But this year was different. This year, there were two dates — and locations — announced: one for Honeywell (Miami) and another for the recently spun-off independently run Resideo (Phoenix). Friends and former colleagues sought each other out for one last hug, unsure when they might see each other at another event like this. Despite some tears, however, there was a strong feeling of optimism in the room, both that day and in the previous days, filled with lots of informative sessions, general sessions, motivational speakers — and even a camel.
Attendees at the first annual Cyber:Secured Forum, held June 4-6 in Denver Colo. and co-sponsored by The Security Industry Association (SIA) and PSA Security Network, were in for some sobering information on cyber security. If anyone came into it thinking they had it pretty well covered they were likely quickly disabused of that notion. However, the overall tone of the event was far from hand wringing. On the contrary, the whole point was to bring together experts from nearly every angle of the problem to share information and ideas on how the security industry can stay on top of a crisis it only identified in recent years.
