Finding That Face in the Crowd: Learn About the Myths and Realities of Facial Recognition at ISC West!

Facial recognition and video based biometrics continue to be a hot topic with security professionals. While shows like CSI, Law & Order and 24 make it seem that technologies exist that can pick a terrorist out of a crowd in Times Square or spot a criminal the moment he steps foot on the street, the reality is that we're not quite there...yet. Cynics, on the other hand, have been overly influenced by stories of failed implementations, floods of false positives and people slipping through the cracks of supposed flawless facial recognition technology.

On April 7 from11:30 am- 12:45pm, attend a session that will dispel the myths and establish the realities by discussing real-world implementations of facial recognition technology and the successful results they have achieved. With forecasted revenues of more than $1.5 billion expected in the biometrics market by 2016 and more than 35 state motor vehicle departments using some form of facial recognition technologies already, let's discuss where we're at and where we're heading.

Speakers include:

Joe Davis, CPP, CFI - Director, Field Retail Loss Prevention, T-Mobile

Cory Deily - Director of Security and Loss Prevention, Redner's Markets, Inc

John Alan Moore - Director of Security & Life Safety, Hilton Americas-Houston

Stephen Russell - Founder and Chairman, 3VR Security, Inc.

Virtualization and Data Center Security: What You Need to Know for 2014

Data centers are increasingly becoming the center of the enterprise, and data center and cyber security is following the same path for security departments. According to Justin Flynn, a consultant at the Burwood Group, the virtualization of data centers allows enterprises to scale more easily and faster, with a smaller footprint.

However, hosting enterprise data in the cloud can make intrusion detection more difficult – how can enterprise security leaders team up with other departments to keep aware of cyber risks and traffic, and physical and data compliance during the virtual transition? How can CISOs and CSOs discuss cyber threats with the C-Suite to get the resources they need? And how can the proper infrastructure test and verify possible malicious attacks?
