Yesterday’s Keynote speaker, Philip Halpin, senior vice president and head of global security, Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH), invited attendees to think critically about the concept of transformation in his presentation, “Friend or Foe? Technology Disruption and the Physical Security Industry.”
There was a time not so long ago that ISC East was considered a small, regional show not as relevant to the bulk of the security and public safety industry. It hasn’t lost its regional flavor; but with three co-located events covering some of the hottest topics in the industry (ISC East, Unmanned Security Expo and Infosecurity North America); both attendance and exhibitor space up; and even more educational content than before, it’s safe to say ISC East is not only “catching its stride,” but quickly becoming a not-to-be-missed event in the fall tradeshow lineup.
ISC East started with a bagpipe — now let’s end it on a high note! While day one was packed with fun, there’s still plenty left to look forward to for day two. After Will Wise, group vice president of the security events portfolio at Reed Exhibitions, gave the opening remarks and kicked off the convention yesterday, attendees headed down to the show floor, where they found those exhibiting for ISC, Unmanned Security Expo New York and Infosecurity North America.
James Gagliano is a retired FBI supervisory special agent, CNN law enforcement analyst, doctoral candidate and adjunct assistant professor at St. John’s University. He will present the day two keynote, “21st Century Best Practices: Reporting from the Front Lines on How Law Enforcement and the Security Industry are Confronting Emerging Threats.” ISC East eNews spoke with Gagliano ahead of the show to find out what he plans to talk about and what he hopes attendees will take away from his keynote.
ISC East 2018 officially opened this morning with a ceremony announcing it bigger and better than ever. For the first time, this year’s event is co-located with two other very timely and relevant events: the Unmanned Security Expo New York and Infosecurity North America.
In today’s intelligence-driven world, it’s no surprise that the security industry is evolving — and much of the change comes from the influence of information technology. As IT becomes a greater force in the world of security, it is paramount that security integrators and end users understand how IT innovations have a direct impact on security deployments. When knowledgeable about both functions, stakeholders solidify the chance to adopt a modern approach that will be valuable far into the future.
ISC East ’18 is here, and while everyone is buzzing about featured areas and cocktail parties, it’s important to make time for professional development, education and peer2peer knowledge sharing.
Whether you want to learn about a new product, participate in a hands-on workshop or even earn some relevant continuing education credits, you’ll find what you’re looking for at this year’s education program.
Former Commissioner of the NYPD Ray Kelly will deliver this year’s keynote address at ISC East, sponsored by the Security Industry Association. ISC East, the Northeast’s largest converged security tradeshow, will be taking place at the Javits Center in New York on November 15 & 16. The keynote will take place on Wednesday, November 15 at 2:00 p.m. and is sponsored by Altronix Corporation.
