Integrated Security

IFSEC International is transformed into an integrated security event for 2019, with a significant focus on the convergence of physical and cyber security, and the evolving integration between multiple security solutions and multiple locations. Smart security products were tested at IFSEC 2019, and we heard from security end-users pioneering the use of integrated security technology in our seminar theatres.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming an ever important element of various technology solutions for the home and commercial sites and buildings. The ability to connect, communicate with, and remotely manage a vast number of networked, automated devices via the internet is now inescapable, from the factory floor to the hospital operating room to the residential basement.

Continued evolution from IFSEC's Home Automation House and Smart Security Theatre, at IFSEC 2019 smart, connected technology was completely integrated throughout the entire event. If you want to discover what security systems of tomorrow look like, don't miss IFSEC 2020.


An evolution in to an integrated security event

2019 was the inaugural year of a transformation of IFSEC’s 40-year heritage as a physical security show into a high-level security summit and integrated security event.

When IFSEC was first conceived, the threats we faced were merely physical. Society has adapted and this is the year we must too.

The security profession must evolve to meet modern needs. IFSEC is gladly becoming the arena for the big discussions, however difficult they may be.

See Integrated Security Technology In Action

IFSEC 2019 gave you the opportunity to get hands-on with all of the latest integrated security solutions and smart security products, in the 'Show Me How' area. The Show Me How area featured hand-selected exhibitors, showcasing innovative, integrated solutions, showing you how these systems really work. What is it they do, and how do they do it? What does configuring these solutions take, and what's involved in maintaining them?

"The convergence of open communications protocols for building control assets and IT infrastructure is providing building owners, facility managers and building occupants with countless options at startlingly low prices."
