Powerful insights drive better experiences, helping to keep people safe, protecting assets, and improving operations. As organizations adapt to the new realities of the world, their security strategy must evolve, too. To stay resilient and thrive, organizations must evolve from reactive threat management to a more agile, proactive, and adaptable function ready to meet new challenges. This requires expecting more from your physical security solutions.
In our current connected operating environment, the allure of digital transformation and innovation has led security leaders to embrace digitalization as a means to enhance both efficiency and profitability. The adoption and integration of IoT and IIoT devices has led to an increasingly interconnected mesh of cyber-physical systems, which expands the attack surface and blurs the once clear functions of cybersecurity and physical security.
Converting sites from analog to IP has to manage advantages. With the many benefits, there are disadvantages of IP systems. One of the disadvantages, losing the simplicity of a spot monitor. Deploying spot monitors in analog systems was relatively easy. Deploying spot monitors in an IP system requires processing at the network edge. Adding a separate decoder or PC on the network edge adds points of failure, complicates installs, increases cyber security risk, and higher maintenance costs.
“Black Swan” events, such as storms that are only supposed to occur once every 100 years or unprecedented wildfires, seem to be occurring with greater frequency. In our world of extremes, it pays to become “anti-fragile” or resilient and able to adapt, respond to, and grow from disruptions. This is particularly important for today’s global supply chains, where the most successful companies that can take advantage of what would otherwise be adverse market conditions or disruptions. However, security professionals can gain from becoming more anti-fragile themselves and learning to see incidents as opportunities for improvement in addition to events to be avoided. This webinar will explain how security professionals can become more anti-fragile, take away better learnings from adverse events, and better forecast risks and threats in the future.
Unexpected events can occur anywhere and anytime, whether at a bank, playground, factory, or corporate headquarters. Understanding the importance and challenges of crisis management in emergency situations is vital for the safety and security of human life and business revenues and reputation. During this presentation, participants will learn the basics of identifying, preventing, and controlling crisis situations. Preparation, training, compliance, stages of a crisis, and the need to establish a crisis management team are discussed. Participants will be able to identify potential risks or situations that may precipitate a crisis or emergency and learn how to respond with instant and effective decisions. The presentation concludes with guidance for damage control and crisis management.
