ISC East kicked off another great event as vendors and providers came together to share everything new in the Security & Alarm channel. The technologies we use to protect our customers are evolving faster than ever and there was a ton of amazing offerings and fresh thinking on hand for 2022. Tigerpaw was there and here are our top 5 takeaways:
Cyber and physical security are melding.
The days of distinct separation for cybersecurity and physical security are soon going to be in the rear-view mirror. Two of the sessions that included powerhouses like Kasia Hanson, Global Director, Video, Safety & Security Sales at Intel said that digital and physical security as offerings are merging. This trend will be an important one for the channel as customers are starting to want ALL their security covered by a single provider.
Want to provide tech for first responders? Get on the web.
If you plan to provide approved technology to assist first responders, the first thing you need to do is make sure you have a strong web presence, according to the DHS (Department of Homeland Security). DHS works with over 160 first responders to determine what is most needed. There is an increased focus on tools for shooter response and wildfire mitigation.
Touchdown! The NFL isn’t playing games when it comes to security.
ISC East gets the extra point for getting two of the NFL’s top security minds on a panel. Tomas Maldonado, Chief Information Security Officer at the NFL and Ryan McKenzie, VP, Stadium Technology at MetLife Stadium, shared some of the most critical things they invest in to keep their teams and fans safe. Things we fans take for granted like keeping the play review laptops off the public web and turning off applications that control watering for the fields during game time are just a couple of examples.
Is that a cell phone or a gun? On the fly video alerting comes of age.
There was a time when video was only used after a crime to try and solve who committed it, but in 2022, it’s all about instantaneous alerting to stop the crime in the first place. Our very own Ingrid Beard had a chance to test some of the tech for herself thanks to Brad Layman and Omnilert!
