CEO Ernesto DiGiambattista will join Ed Davis, former Boston Police Commission and president of Ed Davis, LLC; and Michael Brown, Rear Admiral, United States Navy (Ret.), President, Spinnaker Security LLC for a panel entitled, “The Unstoppable Convergence of Physical and Cybersecurity.” John Worrall, former SVP at RSA, former CMO at CyberArk, will moderate. Wednesday, March 27, 3PM, Hynes Auditorium, Boston, MA.
The convergence of physical and cybersecurity has become the gold standard for maximized protection and risk management. The popularity of IoT devices for physical security creates an entirely new set of vulnerabilities that hackers use to exploit systems. These new security devices are a liability but, implemented properly with the combination of physical and cybersecurity, can be a security benefit to an organization. Convergence prevents physical and information security teams from seeing vulnerabilities from only one perspective, improving response rates to incidents that straddle real-world and IT-based systems. Convergence strengthens an organization’s defenses against escalating threats. Attendees will hear from veterans of the public and private sectors—including the military, law enforcement and technology—how a holistic view of security will better prepare their organizations against tomorrow’s bad actors and threats.
