With the leading drone manufacturer capturing over 85% of the market, it is no wonder why security programs are developed based on their parameters. However, as the popularity of UAS continues to rise, so does the use of alternative devices such as the racing drone. Unlike the 85% of the drone market, racing drones are quite difficult to detect as they do not use GPS or radio frequency signals to identify the location of other devices. As security professionals, we need to be aware of future vulnerabilities and how they will affect us. In addition, the way in which a facility and its security infrastructure are developed should also consider this threat. We need to be aware of real life situations that will potentially leverage how we look at security coverage in many industry verticals.

Learning Objectives:
1. Identify the potential risks that drones can pose to facilities, special events, and critical infrastructure.
2. Devise a way in which drones can be leveraged to improve your security posture or security program.
3. Understand what is now occurring in the UAS market.
