Even the most die-hard analog stalwarts can’t ignore the migration trend to IP/networked based systems and all the benefits that today’s highly integrated systems deliver to the enterprise. The advantages which network systems provide greatly exceed the capabilities of legacy analog professional security systems. Despite the myriad improvements networked systems deliver, there are shortcomings well. Our panel of industry experts, comprised of renowned executives representing the surveillance, access control, identity management and cyber security categories, will address the pros and cons of new network technologies and cyber security, and their role on the Internet of Things for professional security applications.

Learning Outcomes
1. Review how new IP/network solutions and the Internet of Things can improve overall situational awareness and deliver predictive analysis.
2. Define the pros and cons of integrated networked systems.
3. Gain exposure to new insights on integration best practices from industry leading technology and solution suppliers.
