Security Industry Association, PSA Security Network and ISC Security Events to Host Second Annual Cybersecurity Educational Summit
SILVER SPRING, Md. –The next Cyber:Secured Forum, a cybersecurity educational summit focusing on integrated security systems, will be held July 29-31, 2019, at the Westin Dallas Park Central in Dallas, Texas. This event – hosted by the International Security Conference and Exposition Events (ISC Security Events), PSA Security Network and the Security Industry Association (SIA), will explore the ramifications of cybercrime, the strategies for cyber hardening and new technologies and tools designed to improve the security of solutions and systems and provide a framework for developing new business opportunities.
This event marks the second annual Cyber:Secured Forum. The 2018 forum, held in Denver, Colorado, featured keynote remarks from Suneeta Hazra and Judy Smith of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Colorado and representatives from UL and the National Institute of Standards and Technology and sessions on the hacker’s perspective, Internet of Things cybersecurity, right-sizing a cybersecurity strategy and more.
“Providing compelling and practical cyber and data privacy educational content is a top priority for SIA. Our continued collaboration with PSA and ISC Events furthers this goal by presenting new and impactful insights that attendees may leverage to improve their risk management, understand the threat landscape and enhance their cybersecurity strategies,” said Don Erickson, SIA’s CEO.
“Last year’s inaugural event was an amazing learning opportunity for all the parties involved,” said Bill Bozeman, CEO and president of PSA. “The conversations that were had after each session made it clear that cybersecurity is an area that many companies have yet to fully grasp. The continued partnership with SIA and ISC Security Events for this event will surely provide the attendees with the necessary tools and resources to advance their cybersecurity policies and offerings.”
Whether physical security, IT leaders, systems integrators or cyber professionals, attendees of Cyber:Secured Forum 2019 will have the opportunity to interact with peers, share lessons and learn how to make their businesses more resilient, their systems more secure and their cyber practices standardized.
“Figuring out the best strategies and action plans for cyber, operational technology and physical security convergence is one of the top challenges, opportunities and urgencies that the industry faces today,” said Will Wise, group vice president/security portfolio, Reed Exhibitions. “Our ISC Security Events team is enthusiastic about partnering with SIA and PSA Security Network to bring together enterprise, government and education end users, manufacturers and integrators for this summit format event in Dallas.”
This event connects IT and physical security leaders to examine and share information on:
- Cyber hardening of integrated security systems
- How to improve your firm’s cyber posture
- New cybersecurity tools and resources for integrators
- The business of cyber, from liabilities to opportunities
