ISC West is just around the corner and now is the right time to ensure that your team is ready to get the most out of it.

Newly re-titled SIA Education@ ISC to recognize the Security Industry Association’s (SIA) investment in ISC West education, the three-day program features multiple tracks specifically designed to help end-users maximize the return on security investment and meet the demand for integrated security solutions that support and advance business objectives. The focus of this year’s educational program is on next generation technologies and security solutions that are helping security professionals deliver enterprise-wide value.

Over the years, attendees of ISC West have come to expect to see the latest and greatest security technologies, products and solutions on the show floor. The SIA Education@ISC program complements the expo experience by educating attendees on the same leading-edge security technologies and products, but in a vendor-neutral, commercial-free environment.

In fact, to encourage expo attendees to maximize their learning opportunities, SIA and its ISC partner have changed the educational program schedule to give conference attendees more time on the show floor. The second and third days of the conference will start and end earlier, which will allow conference attendees six additional hours to explore the show floor. Armed with their newfound knowledge, attendees will be better equipped to ask probing questions about the security products and technologies found on the show floor and identify the right security solutions for their enterprises.

This year’s program addresses the challenges faced by even the most forward-thinking security managers, including how to integrate next generation technologies like Near-Field Communication (NFC), intelligent video and Physical Security Information Management (PSIM), into their security solutions. End-users will gain insight for developing more robust network-based systems upon which information is compiled and analyzed to provide actionable intelligence. Some of the sessions of particular interest explore the use of NFC for access and identity management; the latest cloud and GPS-based security solutions; conversion of social media and publicly available data into security intelligence to identify and proactively address threats; and leveraging intelligent video to protect people, property and communities.
