Examining the Success Metrics in Profitable Relationships between Practitioners and Their Partners
Hudson Theatre

Security's only role is enabling the business.

This concept is at the core of the practitioner's understanding of his/her role. Thus, the "right" security solution depends on a thorough understanding of the client's needs and business objectives, and the "right" partner is the one that provides the security tools and expertise that match up with needs. How do you measure up?

In this session, manufacturers, integrators and practitioners candidly discuss the factors against which good performance is measured; how to align solutions, services and expertise with customer requirements; and how to deliver exceptional value to your customer.

Cyber Security for Physical Security Pros
TBD

Brought to you by the Global Security Risk Management Alliance (GSRMA), this unique half-day forum provides a plain English translation of IT security concepts and actions so any Physical Security leader can effectively engage in a discussion of cybersecurity. Buzzwords will be explained and techno-babble demystified, enabling security practitioners to make better business decisions related to technology infrastructure, applications, cloud computing, mobile, big data and social media; explore the benefits of gray hat technologies, such as TOR; and discuss the "dark side" of attackers, their motives and methods. 

The forum starts with a foundational explanation of how IT systems work – in simple understandable terms – and builds on that so attendees can go back to their organizations and start asking smart questions. Participants will be amazed how much their existing security expertise directly relates to the cyber security world. Attende​es will receive a set of checklists to use as a reminder of lessons learned.

The GSRMA was founded in 2015 to provide a new platform – Enterprise Security Risk Management – that is focused on the holistic management of both traditional and logical/ cyber security through the use of risk principles. The global enterprise will find this central thesis useful in developing a unified security framework for the governance and management of security-related risk.

The GSRMA forum is open to all SNG attendees.
