Day 1 Keynote: Security Returns: Creating a Lasting, Data-Driven Value Proposition For Your Organization

Sponsored by:

Monday, July 19 | 11:15 AM - 12:00 PM
Featuring: Dave Komendat, Vice President and Chief Security Officer, Enterprise Operations, Finance and Sustainability, Enterprise Services, The Boeing Company

Dave Komendat, Vice President & Chief Security Officer for The Boeing Company and 20-year security executive, will share his thoughts on how the security industry will recover and grow once the pandemic subsides. Why have some companies made the decision to greatly reduce their security function over the past year, while other companies have invested in the function during these difficult times? What led to these intentional investment decisions being made and what are their long-term ramifications?

Those security organizations, suppliers and integrators who can demonstrate a strong value proposition using defined metrics will survive and thrive; those who cannot will likely be challenged as businesses and face a challenging future. How can you effectively share your organizational value proposition with your internal business partners and potential customers? More than ever before, security leaders, suppliers and integrators must seek out internal partnership opportunities where the implementation of multi-use technologies and integrated solutions enhance efficiency and lower costs for multiple organizations within a company.

What other challenges lie ahead for security organizations, suppliers, and integrators as we collectively move toward a “Return to Security?”
