Education Highlights
SIA Education @ ISC East educational programming remains a core element of the overall ISC East experience, offering attendees the critical information they need on the newest and most relevant technology in the industry. Sample sessions, include:

  • We Sneak Into High Security Buildings And Get Paid For It 
    • Physical security penetration testing (often known as red teaming) is a proven strategy of testing physical security controls with the goal of pushing them to failure. In the military, government and in cyber security, this is an accepted and embraced process. his presentation will provide real life stories of past pen test engagements. 
  • How Smart Technologies Are Driving Smart Cities
    • This session will examine the smart cities market from a real-world case study perspective and discuss what technologies and processes were instrumental in their success and the future vision for  these markets. 
  • Video Analytics - The Next Advance in Secure Access Control 
    • While enormously valuable information can be found in videos, the volume of data makes extraction of this information time-consuming and labor intensive. Video analytics is a technology that harnesses the power of high-speed computing to sort through massive amounts of video content in hours, rather than weeks, and identify faces, objects, license plates, and even movement, based on the parameters applied by system operators.
  • Implementing Converged Security, A Process - Bringing It All Together
    • This transformative session will discuss how to perform a Converged Gap Assessment to understand the acceptable level of risk across the areas of Business Operations, Technology, Compliance & Regulations, and Culture.

  ISC East offers additional education opportunities,  including: 

  • Hands-On Workshops: ISC East offers workshops providing cutting-edge information and valuable insights on the most current business trends, technologies and  requirements. Sample workshops, include: “Speaking My Language? Cyber Terminology for Physical Security Integrators” and “Basic Installation and Configuration of Video Surveillance Solutions”.
  • Tech Tank @ ISC East: The four finalists - Arrow Labs, Cepton Technologies, SAFR from RealNetworks and Zero Eyes - will present their innovative solutions on the ISC East Main Stage. Voting will be done via attendees, utilizing the ISC East mobile app.
