These 85-plus accredited sessions, covering a range of industry topics, are designed to arm attendees with the assets and knowledge they need to protect and defend against developing threats in today’s complex security landscape. ISC West 2018 will take place April 11-13 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas, NV. SIA Education@ISC will kick off a day prior to the exhibits, on April 10.
Through its partnership with SIA, ISC West has organized a comprehensive program for attendees from all industries, roles and functions across physical, IT and IoT security. Now that registration is officially open for ISC West, the Connected Security Expo and the Unmanned Security & Safety Expo, attendees can sign up to take part in key sessions. Here is a sample of available sessions.
How Advanced IoT Technology can Create the Connected Workplace of the Future
The Internet of Things (IoT) is booming, but there’s no one-size-fits-all approach for deploying an IoT project in the enterprise, nor for securing it. This session will provide attendees with a model for implementing an end-to-end IoT ecosystem and how to leverage its predictive benefits to improve efficiency and security.
You Are the Password: Frictionless Biometric Security
Biometrics will continue to be a hot topic this year, with everyone wondering if using facial recognition or fingerprints is truly more secure than traditional passwords and pins. This session will define where we are with biometrics, how it’s changing the way we interact and transact, and how its increasing popularity will impact our relationship with physical devices.
Active Shooter Workshop
Today’s defense environment is unpredictable, and active shootings are a real concern for businesses and communities. Back by popular demand, join this hands-on workshop to learn how to protect and defend from a communications and infrastructure perspective.
Another Brick in the Firewall: Security Leaders Discuss The Elements of Complete Cyber Protection
As a 50-year-old brand, ISC West has evolved from a physical security event to a converged security event, adapting to stay on the cusp of the changing environment. This diverse panel comprised of experts across intelligent power, surveillance, access control, identity management and cybersecurity will address these vital topics.
Case Study of Law Enforcement Uses of UAVs
Listen to a firsthand account of how the Nevada Highway Patrol has pioneered the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to investigate motor vehicle crashes. A case study will be presented showing the capabilities of UAVs to speed up on-scene investigations, allowing roadways to be cleared faster. A comparison of the data obtained by the UAV and by a total station will be presented.
“Each year, our mission is to provide attendees with the knowledge, strategies and tactics they need to fight emerging threats, straight from industry experts who are experiencing the same security concerns,” said Will Wise, group vice president of the ISC security portfolio at Reed Exhibitions. “This year is no exception; we’re providing education covering everything from access and ID management to connected security to video surveillance to unmanned systems to IoT and AI, and more. We’re looking forward to continuing to provide that expert-level thought leadership we’re known for and to help cross-functional teams learn and collaborate.”
