IT & Cyber Security

As physical security systems and building management tools become increasingly connected and IoT enabled, the risk of cyber attacks only increases. Traditional security professionals now need to turn to cyber solutions in order to effectively secure their physical assets.

A need for siloed physical and IT security professionals is dead. That's why IFSEC has been transforming from its position as the leading physical security event to showcase innovation and drive security from a convergence perspective. IFSEC 2018 hosted a dedicated cyber security zone on the show floor, featuring products, services and training providers around IT security, as well as an increased focus on the cyber security "must knows" for the traditional security professional in the Keynote Arena and seminar theatre.

"Physical security specialists need to upskill and understand how to incorporate cyber threat to physical assets."

Mike Gillespie
Managing Director, Advent IM Security Consulting
