2021: The Year of Convergence

Webinar

While convergence has been a prominent buzzword for years, new ASIS Foundation research shows that only “24 percent of study respondents have converged their physical and cybersecurity functions.” This number needs to increase dramatically in 2020. The consequences of not converging security operations becomes more significant as security risks facing all industries continue to evolve. Gain insight into how today's multi-layered and sophisticated security threats require a unified defense and offense. Organizations must put convergence as a top-level focus if they want to stay safe and protect what matters most to the enterprise.

Building Security: Protecting Your People & Property with Bulletproof Systems

Webinar

As with so much else, the COVID-19 pandemic has amplified the intersectionality between extremist threats, exponentially increasing their potency. The rise of these threats experienced in the U.S. prior to the pandemic, particularly by right wing extremists and nationalists or separatists, are increasingly mainstream and increasingly global. There is evidence that individuals within these groups are converging with conspiracy groups such as Q-Anon, science-deniers, and anti-vaxers, who are also gaining traction in the mainstream.

The mainstreaming and greater prevalence of extremism suggests a need to increase the focus on behavioral threat assessment and workplace bystander programs, the “security literacy” of the workforce generally, and enhance public and private community partnerships.
