Hospital Security: Checkup on technology and innovation
Every day, hospital security directors contend with security challenges as diverse as violence in emergency rooms, securing neonatal units, ensuring prescription drugs are safeguarded, and complying with regulations such as HIPAA. They must maintain an environment that is both open to the public and highly secure. In this educational session, security directors from three leading U.S. hospitals talk about what kinds of technology they've put in place in their hospitals, what works well, what doesn't work well, and what's on their security technology wish lists.
Does the cloud compute for your company?
Now a mainstream approach for enterprise information systems, cloud computing can be a beguiling option for physical security as well. Led by Steve Van Till, co-founder of one of the original cloud security companies, this session features security directors from major corporations, such as Salesforce.com. They will discuss the advantages, and also the limits, that cloud services provide for such critical security applications as video. How to protect the forensic trail is a key issue no security director can overlook.
Securing America's most critical assets
When moderator Rob Hile is asked why MIT's security problems are different, he cooly replies, "They do have a nuclear reactor." Rob Hile moderates this discussion among top security directors from three of the United States' most unique critical infrastructure sites: a world-leading biotech firm; one of the most recognized universities in the country; and, one of the South's largest municipal water systems. The need for total situational awareness, centralized alarm management and the requirement for integration with security and non-security platforms alike will be discussed. They will share the challenges that keep them up at night. The group will discuss their experiences, both good and bad, with the various situational awareness/PSIM platforms that are currently flooding the market today.

Is your security system the most vulnerable point on your network?
The U.S. is constantly under attack by global cyber gangs, organized criminals and nation states. These growing Advanced Persistent Threat attacks target companies, government and infrastructure. The constant search for the weakest link has exposed new vulnerabilities. Has the security system become a new target? Security systems are rich with information that attackers want, such as video, audio, transactional and personal information, not to mention the fact that doors can be opened and alarms disabled. As more analog security devices become IP-enabled, more opportunities arise for a hack. What is the role of the customer, integrator and manufacturer? What are the real risks? Here's what we can we do.
