From cybersecurity to internal workplace safety, this year’s ASIS Convention is sure to pack many interesting topics, demonstrations, and industry education into three incredible days. In addition to all of the events and a massive showcase floor that will hold over 500 exhibitors, this year’s ASIS will host some unique keynote presentations. Among the list of speakers is former President George W. Bush, Shark Tank judge and serial entrepreneur, Mark Cuban, author and business consultant, Scott Klososky, as well as the first female F-14 Tomcat aviator/ former lieutenant, Carey Lohrenz.

The Demos

Beyond the anticipated list of speakers, ASIS is guaranteed to bring a promising amount of impressive demonstrations from access control companies who are utilizing technologies like AI, Biometrics, wireless readers, and platforms. For instance, you have Code Lynx’s Aries, a mixed reality security system, using Microsoft’s Hololens, that “provides the security operations center with a real-time body worn display of what the field units are seeing and interacting with.”

Moreover, expect to see plenty of information and demonstrations on the latest biometric technologies. BioSignature ID will be presenting their unique gesture-based security system that’s meant to prevent internet fraud. Additionally, Princeton Identity will be presenting their new IOM Access200 to ASIS attendees. Several companies will be featuring wireless readers this year, as well as open security platforms as more and more companies turn to these solutions to improve access control ecosystems.

Hot Topics

This year at ASIS, the hot topics range from cybersecurity, workplace safety, and global security. For cybersecurity, there are plenty of seminars being held to inform the industry on best practices and preventative measures against ransomware, malware, and DDoS attacks. Seminars like “What have physical security hackers taught us?” and “Become Stealth Online” will be sure to improve attendees’ knowledge on the subject in addition to teaching them preventative measures against cyber attacks. Best practices on workplace safety will also be taught through sessions on “Strategies for violent predator mitigation,“Safe Employee Termination,” and many more. Finally, ASIS 2017 will also shed some light on more difficult subjects like terrorism through seminars on response strategies and the development of strong, proactive communities.
