NEW YORK, N.Y. – ISC East, the Northeast’s leading security and public safety event built by RX Global, hosted in collaboration with premier sponsor Security Industry Association (SIA) and in partnership with ASIS NYC, is pleased to announce that security and technology leaders Tomás Maldonado and Ryan McKenzie will headline the 2022 SIA Education@ISC East Keynote Series with the presentation “NFL Perspectives on Cybersecurity and Organizational Resilience.” This keynote session is open to all attendees at ISC East, taking place Nov. 15-17 (SIA Education@ISC: Nov. 15-17 |Exhibit Hall: Nov. 16-17) at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.

National Football League (NFL) stadiums are leveraging venue technologies and other digital innovations to optimize the fan experience and strengthen security operations and public safety. Managing the cybersecurity function for new technology services and enhancements deployed across 30 stadiums requires a strategic and converged approach to organizational resilience. In this keynote presentation, NFL Chief Information Security Officer Tomás Maldonado and MetLife Stadium Vice President of Stadium Technology Ryan McKenzie will offer expert insights and best practices to help security professionals anticipate, mitigate, and respond to the risks and threats associated with today’s digital transformation and integrated technology systems used to support event operations.

“ISC East is thrilled to welcome Tomás Maldonado and Ryan McKenzie as our 2022 keynote speakers; as we know, organizations today must take a more converged approach when implementing security solutions, and their expertise in cybersecurity and technology services will provide valuable insights to our attendees and assist security professionals in anticipating and responding to potential threats,” said RX Global Event Director, ISC Security Events Mary Beth Shaughnessy.

Also, at ISC East this year, the ASIS NYC Chapter Person of the Year Lunch taking place on Wednesday, Nov. 16, will kick off with featured speaker, John Miller, chief law enforcement and intelligence analyst at CNN. Along with his prior law enforcement career, Miller has worked in journalism as a senior correspondent for CBS News reporting for CBS This Morning and CBS Evening News for 60 Minutes. He is the winner of the DuPont Silver Baton (“DuPont Award), two Peabody Awards and eleven Emmys. Miller is also a former ABC News correspondent and anchor, perhaps best known for conducting a May 1998 interview with Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan. He is the co-author of the New York Times bestseller The Cell: Inside the 9/11 Plot.
