Convergence is no longer something to aim for it is a strategic imperative. Today’s threats include hybrid attacks targeting both physical and cyber assets.  Advancements in technology and the integration of the Internet of Things into security operations and business processes have connected individual security devices and operational technology to the vast virtual ecosystem, expanding the potential attack surface of facilities and making traditional physical security and safety systems more vulnerable.

Providing reliable security for organizational assets presents numerous challenges for the security professional. Unfortunately, in many organizations, security is often controlled by separate authorities, resulting in a siloed approach to security. When organizational elements operate independently with minimal or no collaboration, the organization’s overall security is reduced.

This session will touch on the challenges of security convergence before providing an in-depth set of solutions and their associated long-term benefits, with a special emphasis on the recent Interagency Security Committee publication Security Convergence: Achieving Integrated Security: An Interagency Security Committee Best Practice.

In this session, experts from government agencies and the security industry will share the lessons learned in their efforts to modernize physical access control systems. The security industry fulfills a crucial role in cybersecurity and national security by providing the systems that manage credentials for federal workers and contractors and control access to federal facilities and computer networks; however, continuing use of low-assurance, legacy mechanisms leave significant risks unaddressed. This panel will examine ways agencies are seeking to modernize their physical access control systems with equipment and software meeting current federal standards and the related polices and funding mechanisms necessary to support these efforts.

School districts have been subject to stand-alone access control security platforms for decades, primarily due to past budget, resource and management constraints. In order to capitalize on security operations that can manage risk across an entire school district, security directors now require open architecture, flexible and scalable security command and control operating systems that are a generation beyond current stand-alone door access and campus video solutions. They must “Think Legos” when establishing a district-wide security platform that can overcome the limitations of past industry offerings, by unifying systems and programs.

A unified platform delivers full-spectrum views of the entire district’s comprehensive security picture – for the fastest situational analysis and response by administrators, school resource officers and school-based law enforcement. It empowers automated response capabilities and “management by exception” for a solution that requires a fraction of the staff normally needed to monitor security. Seamless unification allows the system to accommodate new technology advances that bring together every district department and extend the life of the system for maximum benefit to the community and the taxpayers.

Physical goods and mail remain one of the largest security gaps facing government organizations and corporations alike. In a world where every person walking into a facility undergoes multiple levels of access control and security screening and every email is scanned for cyber threats, it is surprising how little effective screening is applied to mail and other physical deliveries entering facilities.

This session will cover new and emerging threats facing corporations and government organizations, including the growing convergence of physical and cyber threats, along with an overview of current and new security screening technologies making it easier than ever to effectively scan incoming items and detect potential threats to mitigate these risks.

Specific topics covered will include government and public-source data describing the type and prevalence of physical threats facing organizations; fundamentals of noninvasive imaging systems; new technologies and developments including X-ray, T-ray, infrared, radar, and related technologies; and real-world examples and practical applications.

Physical security and cybersecurity professionals often seek to provide a multilayered approach to safeguarding their companies, organizations, personnel, facilities, systems and reputations. Solutions are often complex and multi layered. This same model, combined with a sense of urgency, is required to support interoperable emergency communications.

According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency, “Interoperability” is the ability of emergency response agencies to talk to one another via communication systems – to exchange voice and/or data with one another on demand, in real time, when needed and as authorized; however, a significant number of after action reports from various major incidents or events identify multiple instances where communications (voice, data, video) has completely failed, strained response operations or caused a significant breakdown in processes.

Understanding the whole emergency communications ecosystem is an essential first step to any daily activity (organizational mission), special event, first amendment activity, national special security event, DHS Special Event Assessment Rating rated events or natural/manmade disasters. Providing uninterrupted communications – operable, interoperable and continuity of communications, combined with a well thought out P.A.C.E. (primary, alternate, contingency and emergency) plan, is crucial to ensuring operational success.

The recent advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) and the accurate classification of people and vehicles have promised to eliminate false alarms that are frequently experienced in perimeter video surveillance systems. But is AI the silver bullet we have all been waiting for? And can we now enable real-time alerting without fear of false positives (nuisance alarms) or false negatives (missed events)?

This session will investigate the improvements that AI has made to video analytics and how they can be used to successfully provide real-time notifications of perimeter intrusion. We will also examine the reality of the “marketing claims” vs the true capabilities of the technology. Finally, we will discuss the best practices for designing and deploying a perimeter security solution that takes advantage of AI-trained classification while selecting the optimal camera type, layout and method of human engagement.

By leveraging data fusion and correlation, modern security command and control systems hosted on edge devices and servers can receive detections and tracks from a variety of sensors such as motion analytics, radars and fence, ground and subterranean sensors. Autonomous commanding of cameras and dispatching unmanned aerial systems and unmanned ground vehicles to go “inspect” the detected targets to automatically verify is key to efficient and cost-effective operation with minimal operator involvement. This robust approach also combines geospatial video analytics with artificial intelligence/deep learning and radar tracks to disambiguate the objects of interest.

Continuous validation of the confidence level of the system through robust ground truth regression testing can eliminate nearly all nuisance alarms while maintaining a very high detection rate. In addition, integration of the Android Team Awareness Kit is becoming a dramatic force multiplier by providing the common operational picture in the hands of government agents and security personnel.
