ISC East Keynotes to Focus on Technology Disruption, Evolving Threat Matrix

Speakers include Philip Halpin, an executive with financial firm Brown Brothers Harriman, and James Gagliano, a retired FBI supervisory special agent.

NEW YORK CITY — ISC East, sponsored by the Security Industry Association (SIA), will introduce its inaugural Keynote Series at this year’s event, held here Nov. 14-15 at the Javits Center.

The ISC East Keynote Series is billed as featuring leading members of the security industry who are well-known for their widely-respected accomplishments; and who are prepared to help security and public safety professionals gain new perspectives in order to arm them with the information they need to lead the security industry into the future.

To that end, here is this year’s line-up:

On Nov. 14, Philip Halpin, senior vice president and head of global security for financial firm Brown Brothers Harriman, will speak on how he deals with the demands on security and people management, while riding the wave of technology disruption. Halpin’s presentation, titled “Friend or Foe? Technology Disruption and the Physical Security Industry,” will also cover how technology has changed how we work and live, and how it’s clearly poised to disrupt the physical security industry.

On Nov. 15, James A. Gagliano, a retired FBI supervisory special agent, will present “21st Century Best Practices: Reporting from the Front Lines on How Law Enforcement and the Security Industry are Confronting Emerging Threats.” Gagliano, a CNN law enforcement analyst, and adjunct assistant professor at St. John’s University, will discuss significant changes in law enforcement and security postures. He will also address recent responses to contemporary challenges, such as active shooters, bombings, VIP protection, and drone applications by identifying and breaking down an ever-evolving threat matrix.

“ISC East is honored to have Philip Halpin and James Gagliano as Keynote Speakers for our 2018 event. Their extensive experience managing real-world security and safety issues will be very valuable for our audience at the show,” says Will Wise, group vice president, security portfolio at Reed Exhibitions. “The ISC East Keynote Series spans from corporate and private sector security to law enforcement and public safety, reflecting essential content in line with our ISC Security Events theme of Comprehensive Security for a Safer, Connected World.”
