President and CEO
Alarm Center Excellence Inc.
Michael has over 33 years of experience in the security and fire alarm industry involving local and state governments, private utilities, consumers, and federal agencies that included the design, installation of systems along with central alarm stations.
Last year, the need to modernize physical access control systems was underscored in discussions at SIA GovSummit. This year, experts from government agencies and the security software industry will share the lessons learned in their efforts to modernize government security systems. Specifically, the panel will discuss how they standardized legacy technologies like access control, video management and other physical security systems and integrated data silos from those systems to provide centralized visibility and improved safety for their facilities. In addition to sharing their experiences, insights and road maps in architecting these systems, the panel will also discuss the changes in policies that were needed to address the challenges and risks that face highly secured government facilities.
