Physical Security, information security, cybersecurity, privacy
The physical security space is changing, with emerging threats, new criminal techniques, terrorism and hostile activism just of few of the drivers of change.
The implications are profound. The world of physical security systems is being invaded by multiple new and emerging technologies. Arguably, the technology currently showing the greatest potential implications have a wireless Internet connection to pass their status (data) via digital communications to other components, devices or systems. Given the growing capabilities of these emerging IoT devices, they are likely to transform electronic security systems that protect physical assets. Corporate security staff that operate, manage and monitor the electronic security systems used in the facilities they are assigned, in most cases, have not been trained on how to use the security systems equipment.
