Back by Popular Demand: Don’t Miss These Sessions at ISC West 2019

ISC West education

ISC West is quickly approaching – in addition to great networking, special events and new products and technologies, attendees have access to 85+ top-quality training sessions through SIA Education@ISC. With so many education sessions to choose from, you might be wondering which ones to mark on your calendar. Here, the Security Industry Association (SIA) shares three of the most popular SIA Education@ISC sessions returning to ISC West this year (all times PDT):

Active Shooter Workshop

Tuesday, April 9
8:30-10:00 a.m. and 2:45-3:45 p.m.

Unfortunately, active shooter incidents pose real threats to our businesses and communities, and it’s important to understand how to handle these incidents before they happen. In this hands-on workshop led by David LaRose of Lee Health and Ben Scaglione of the Security Design Group, attendees will learn how to be valuable partners in active shooter threat mitigation – not silent observers – and help first responders get the clarity, assistance and insights they need. Additionally, the session will highlight how to develop an effective communications platform and infrastructure for dispatching messages in the event of an emergency.

What’s New at ISC West?

Wednesday, April 10
9:45-10:45 a.m.

This exciting session – taking place the morning the ISC West show floor opens – will share a preview of the new, innovative technologies and products you’ll see at this year’s exhibit hall. J. Kelly Stewart of Newcastle Consulting, LLC, and Steven Oplinger of Equinox 01 LLC will help you get the most of your show experience by providing a road map to help you navigate the 1,000+ exhibitors and brands and highlighting what’s at ISC West for the first time ever.

Hacked in 60 Seconds: How Legacy Wiegand Exposes Modern Access Control

Thursday, April 11
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Does it matter if doors are secure? Even if you have the latest biometric readers and credentials, Wiegand and other legacy protocols can still compromise entrance security and increase risk for integrators and customers. In this session designed for dealers, integrators, access control manufacturers and corporate security professionals, Tony Diodato of Cypress Integration Solutions and Cypress Computer Systems and Babak Javadi of the CORE Group Security Auditors will discuss how easily reader connections can be hacked and how data can be stolen when using legacy protocols and how to secure connections leveraging SIA’s open supervised device protocol (OSDP) standard.
