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.”
The adoption of technology within security operations is table stakes, and the use of equipment like IP cameras is a practice that is synonymous with surveillance. Since the introduction of this type of equipment dates back more than 20 years, however, security professionals are quickly realizing that their use of technology must consider new threats and advancements in today’s workplace. Innovations in machine learning, computer vision, and robotics are expected to have a profound impact across multiple product categories in security operations.
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.
