What to See at ISC West 2022

Next week is the ISC West Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada. And if you’re attending, you’re probably in the process of crafting your daily itineraries and finalizing your schedule. With so many available exhibitors, sessions, speakers and educational opportunities—not to mention happy hours, dinners and afterparties—it’s easy to feel like you might be missing out on something. Here’s an overview of some staples to fit in, as well as a few recommendations if you happen to have the time!


The Day 1 Keynote Session, “The Continuing Evolution of Las Vegas: How Aviation Security Technology Advancements are Taking LAS to the Next Level,” is scheduled from 8:45–9:45 a.m. on Wednesday, March 23, in Venetian Ballroom F. The speaker is Rosemary Vassiliadis, Director of Aviation for the Clark County Department of Aviation. She’ll talk about how the renewed bustle of travelers through Harry Reid International Airport is pushing officials to evolve security measures and keep people moving. She’ll also talk about the airport’s Innovation Checkpoint, a TSA initiative designed to test new security technologies and processes.

The Day 2 Keynote Session is called “Lessons in Public Safety Response, Crisis Management and Community Resiliency in the Age of Mass Shooting.” It’s scheduled from 8:45–9:45 a.m. on Thursday, March 24, also in Venetian Ballroom F. Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard will discuss the mass shooting response and recovery efforts following the active shooter incident at Oxford High School in Nov. 2021. He’ll cover topics like emergency preparedness; crisis management; and security technologies intended to detect, deter, prevent and respond to mass shooting events.

Day 3 brings the SIA Women in Security Forum Keynote, “People Hacking: The Human Element of Security,” scheduled from 10–11 a.m. on Friday, March 25, at the Bridge Stage at Booth 20073. Speaker Jenny Radcliffe is a social engineer and “people hacker” who’s talked her way past security into places like high-security banks and even the Tower of London. She’ll explain how you can read people and social cues better, use subtle persuasion tactics, reopen avenues of conversation and understand their own social vulnerabilities. She’ll also discuss how the weakest link in organizational security is often the human wearing the security uniform.

"From protecting major airports to preventing and responding to mass shootings to the behavioral science aspect of security, this powerful series of keynotes at ISC West will deliver insights that truly matter to our industry, and these keynotes pair well with the full SIA Education@ISC conference program, where leading experts will share their knowhow on topics of security technology, business management and career improvement,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson in a press release. “With a variety of other special SIA training offerings, including our OSDP Boot Camp, SIA’s Security Project Management training course, an information session on the Security Industry Cybersecurity Certification, a drones and robotics business forum and the kickoff to the new Women in Security Forum Leadership Series, this year’s ISC West offers more expertise than ever before.”


The Security Industry Association (SIA) is also putting on more than 65 sessions through the SIA Education@ISC West program. A few of the highlights include:

“We Were Promised Flying Cars and Jet Packs. But We Did Get Security Robots,” by speaker Steve Reinharz. Scheduled from 11:15 a.m.–12:15 p.m. on Tuesday, March 22, in Venetian 302, Level 1.
