After a successful inaugural run in 2016, the Connected Security Expo is back for year two at ISC West 2017 with some important changes.
As the worlds of physical and IT security continue to become more intertwined, the expo is designed to explore the important topic, especially the Internet of Things, also known as IoT.
For its 2017 run, the expo will be be located on the ISC West exhibit floor. There will also be a dedicated education track on the topic at the SIA Education@ISC conference program.
"The 'connecting' of Connected Security Expo to ISC West is in response to direct feedback from last year's attendees," explained ISC and Connected Security Expo Senior Vice President and General Manager Ed Several. "Feedback from last year's event was overwhelmingly positive from attendees, but as physical and IT security merge, it makes sense to keep this complementary content closer in physical proximity at the show."

Once again this year, I plan on using Twitter extensively to give everyone up-to-date information on what is making news at the show. Make sure to follow @SecurToday. I'll start Tweeting with the start of my schedule on Wednesday 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 security.
Even if you're not going to the show, feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com with any show announcements or news. And make sure to keep an eye out for the newsletters from Las Vegas all next week.
