Session Examines the Growing Importance of Near Field Communication Technology

As part of the Signature Series of education events at ISC West, The Third Revolution in Mobile Services: Near Field Communication will examine NFC technology and how it will change the industry. The session will be from 4-5 p.m. on Thursday in Room 502.

Estimates peg that by 2015, half of smartphones will be enabled with the short-range radio NFC technology. But there are many questions still remaining about the technology including consumer adoptions and security.

Some of the topics to be discussed during the session include identifying various applications of NFC technology and key concerns related to consumer adoption of the technology. Also on the agenda is talking about the interoperability issues and the development of NFC standards.

The moderator of the session is Chris Corum with AVISIAN Inc. Panelists include Jason Bohrer with HID Global,Mark Diodati from Gartnerand Rob Zivney with Identive Group.

For those with iPhones (which aren’t yet NFC-enabled), ISC West also has rolled out a new mobile-friendly application that provides all the information you’d ever want about the conference, and much more. The free iPhone app can be downloaded here.

Once again this year, I plan on using Twitter extensively to give my followers up-to-date information on what is making news at the show. You can find me on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/BrentDirks. I’ll start Tweeting with the start of my schedule this morning.

My schedule is full of appointments and other events, but if you get a chance during the show, stop me and say hi. I enjoy meeting as many people as possible and learning more about the world of IP security.

Even if you’re not going to the show, feel free to e-mail me at bdirks@1105media.com with any show announcements or news. And make sure to keep an eye out for the newsletters from Las Vegas all this week.
