Wireless controls, cloud-based systems, and smaller, more powerful surveillance cameras will be among the technologies on display at the annual ISC West security conference in Las Vegas April 6-8.
According to WESCO Security, which will exhibit at the show, attendees will peruse the latest and greatest systems while discussing some hot industry topics, including:
Physical and cyber security are entwined.
Security professionals must now involve Information Technology with their IP cameras and network-connected devices. Likewise, IT professionals must assess all potential physical security issues. A Dutch researcher recently hacked a police surveillance drone, demonstrating how vulnerable security can be to IT breaches.
Mobile access is an expectation for physical security.
Despite the cyber risks, people want – and expect – to monitor sites and control security systems from their mobile devices. However, reality has some catching up to do.
Legal and ethical dilemmas intersect with physical security.
Laws governing body cameras are a good example. Implementing technology without carefully thought-out policies and procedures can create additional problems for businesses.
Visit WESCO at booth #8109 to discuss these and other security-related issues. Register now for the event.
