Achieve FICAM Conformance with a Unified Approach: Physical Identity & Access Management and Physical Security Information Management Converge

This webinar occurred on:  May 21, 2014

Achieving FICAM conformance for physical and logical access with continuous monitoring of the physical security infrastructure are recent government imperatives. Integrating Physical Identity and Access Management (PIAM) with Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) provides the platform to meet this next generation challenge.

Existing physical access control systems (PACS), video management systems (VMS), intrusion detection systems (IDS), and other sensory based detection systems each operate with their own graphical user interfaces focused on the specific kind of data they capture. This webinar will demonstrate how to effectively transform this stove-piped infrastructure into a common security operational platform. Such initiatives are key to achieving the modernization mandated by the federal government.

Government is being asked to do more with less. Automating the routine to focus attention on anomalies is the only way to stretch its shrinking workforce to cover the gap.

Key takeaways you don't want to miss:
  • Unify your disparate physical components in to a centrally managed enterprise system
  • Save money by automating repetitive provisioning and monitoring processes
  • Proactively minimize risk and more quickly react to unforeseen security events at facilities
  • Future proof your physical security infrastructure while complying with government directives
