The San Diego Security Show 2017 will have three separate speaker tracks during the 2-day event. These speaker tracks are broken up into three categories. Each participating vendor will have a speaking slot to help educate and inform the attendees with their unique solution offering. The second speaker track is a set of industry professionals that wish to share their knowledge and understanding of a particular area of the physical security industry. And the third speaker track is from End-users across Southern California that want to share "What Keeps Them Up At Night" with their physical security challenges. Attendance to all speaker tracks is available with admission to the exhibit floor. Spend two days learning from industry experts in a hands-on environment.

    Veracity: Video Surveillance Data Storage

    There is a common misconception that video data, being digital, are just like any other data. In reality there are important and crucial differences between video data and generalized IT data and such differences are amplified in large-scale surveillance systems. Video surveillance is an integral, perhaps critical, part of many organizations. High Definition and even Multi-Megapixel IP cameras are increasingly used for surveillance in city centers, transportation systems, shopping malls and monitoring of critical infrastructure. Increasing video resolution coupled with longer data retention periods have created the need for very high capacity storage systems specifically designed for digital video. Thus understanding the special nature of video data, in terms of data generation, data rates, data access, data security, retention policies, forensic evidential integrity and convenient data transport, is vital for the optimum design, resilience and lowest total cost of ownership of the overall surveillance system.

But what if cameras were no longer just forensic tools, but had real time communication, alarming, and live video and audio streaming systems? In this informative session Bob Ehlers will discuss developments in wireless body worn camera technology that are game changing. See how live video streaming from anywhere can be used to create a collaborative and safe work environment for police. Learn how body worn camera policy can be automated, situational awareness improved, training enhanced, public disclosure satisfied, supervision made simplier, and operator errors eliminated with reliable wireless communication technology. A live demo will be provided.

    How Well Protected Is Your Office And Employees From Criminals?

    By the time a surveillance camera is triggered, its often too late for authorities to arrive. Property is already stolen and your people potentially hurt or worse. Physical Access Control is more important now than ever before. Who has access to your keys and access badges? Is that enough to ensure the safety of your property and people? The Advanced Biometric Access Control class informs attendees upon the 40-year history and evolution of the Electronic Access Control (EAC) industry and the inherent flaws of past security technology. This presentation drills down on the specific components of an EAC system (i.e. readers, controllers, door hardware, software, networking, wiring, etc.). After a thorough understanding of current EAC systems, the attendees then learn about the advantages, inner workings, and implementation considerations —both positive and negative— when installing Advanced Biometric security systems. It really is a fun and informative class!

    Physical Security In The Maritime Transportation System - Understanding Cyber to Physical Impacts

    Physical Security affects us all, every day, in many different ways. We think of physical security as a means to protect our families, our assets, along with protecting property. Recently, there is a new, emerging approach that threatens our abilities to successfully protect and prevent loss to property, assets, and in more catastrophic instances lives – CYBER! Cyber-attacks are frequently seen as attacks on banking industry or identity theft. However, an increasing new front is emerging that affects commerce and that front is the Maritime Transportation System (MTS). Over 90% of the world’s economy is shipped via maritime means and with increasing reliance on computers and the internet their vulnerability has also increased at an exponential rate. The intermodal MTS affects assets (lost revenue); property (damage, loss of inventory); environmental damage (spills); and potential loss of life (failed components). This paper will present examples to help understand the reach of cyber in the MTS and its impact to physical security as well as to address the need and issues associated with prevention and compliance with regulations and standards.
