Raymond Kelly, Former NYPD Commissioner, to Keynote ISC East
Kelly, who is current vice chairman of K2 Intelligence, will touch on some of his most widely-respected accomplishments in the industry during the session.
NEW YORK, N.Y. — Raymond Kelly, the longest serving commissioner in the history of the New York City Police Department, will deliver the keynote address at ISC East 2017. The presentation, sponsored by Altronix, will be held Nov. 15 at 2 p.m.
Kelly is the first person to hold the NYPD commissioner post for two non-consecutive tenures. He will give an hour-long address, focusing on his development of the NYPD during the time immediately following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He is also expected to provide insights into today’s most pressing public safety and cyber threats and how to protect against them.
Featuring first-hand experiences and real-time examples, this year’s keynote session will help the ISC East audience gain new perspectives and arm them with the information to lead the security industry into the future, says ISC Events Industry Vice President Sherida Sessa.
“ISC East is the only industry event that offers full education program to attendees at no cost. We are thrilled to be able to add a speaker of Commissioner Kelly’s caliber to our November lineup,” says Sessa. “Commissioner Kelly was instrumental in NYC’s recovery from 9/11 and changed the way public safety is handled today.”
Kelly currently serves as vice chairman at K2 Intelligence, an industry-leading investigative, compliance and cyber defense services firm. He was formerly a Marine Corps Reserve colonel, director of police under the United Nations Mission in Haiti, and an Interpol vice president.
ISC East, sponsored by the Security Industry Association, is the Northeast’s largest security trade show with an expected attendance of roughly 7,500 security professionals. The event will feature more than 225 exhibitors, free SIA Education@ISC sessions, networking events and more.
“ISC East continues to serve as a leading platform for attendees to gain unparalleled insight into the security technology needs of the public safety community,” says SIA CEO Don Erickson. “Attendees will certainly benefit from Commissioner Kelly’s perspective about today’s national security threats and how the NYPD under his leadership effectively redefined its relationship with the private sector and helped to keep countless communities safe from violent crime and terrorist attacks.”
ISC East will be held at the Javits Center in New York City on Nov. 15-16. For more information, visit isceast.com.
