November 21, 2019, 12:15 PM - 1:00 PM

Location: Theater 1

Why use the most advanced readers and credentials in an access control system, only to introduce a vulnerability at the connection?  See how easily the Wiegand or legacy protocol connection can be hacked and learn how SIA's OSDP standard secures the connection in this session featuring ethical hacker Babak Javadi and format/protocol expert Tony Diodato, co- chair of the SIA OSDP Working Group. You'll also learn how OSDP delivers a host of other benefits, saving time and money.

Recommended for dealers, installers, integrators, consultants, access control manufacturers and corporate security professionals.

Learning Outcomes:
1. Identify technological changes in access control leading to increased risk for integrators and end users.
2. Analyze access control systems and differentiate between key areas of vulnerability.
3. Diagram the advantages of SIA's Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) and describe how OSDP secures the vulnerability inherent in legacy protocols.
