Trio of Security Industry Organizations to Launch Cybersecurity Conference
PSA Security Network, ISC Security Events and Security Industry Association will host the inaugural Cyber:Secured Forum in Denver, June 4-6.
SILVER SPRING, Md. — The first ever Cyber:Secured Forum, a cybersecurity summit focusing on integrated systems, will be presented in Denver, June 4-6, under a partnership formed by PSA Security Network, ISC Security Events (Reed Exhibitions) and the Security Industry Association (SIA).
Cyber:Secured Forum will feature in-depth content on cybersecurity trends and best practices as related to the delivery of physical security systems and other integrated systems. Content is being collaboratively developed by SIA and PSA Security Network’s education teams and will feature top cybersecurity leaders. Additionally, sponsor exhibits will help showcase solutions related to cybersecurity, integrated systems and physical security solutions.
The two-day event will provide leaders in the IT and physical security industries with opportunities to connect and share information on risks and liabilities, responding to cybersecurity threats and establishing security control standards across IT systems.
“Sophisticated cyber vulnerabilities and threats are emerging every day, and it is critical for the physical security and systems integration industry to accelerate its delivery of compelling education to help all industry stakeholders mitigate the risk of cyberattacks to business continuity,” says SIA CEO Don Erickson.
Will Wise, group vice president of Reed Exhibitions’ security portfolio, says educational sessions on cyber-physical integration and connected security at recent ISC West and ISC East events have been in high-demand.
“In-depth education, training and industry collaboration is essential to ensure safe and secure systems for the market,” he says. “We’re enthusiastic about this partnership with PSA Security Network and SIA to address this important market need.”
“Cybersecurity is no longer just a threat—it’s a real issue knocking on the doors of security and IT professionals on a daily basis,” says Bill Bozeman, president and CEO, PSA Security Network. “The time for just being in reaction mode is behind us now. As security leaders, we have a responsibility to step forward and be part of the frontline defense when it comes to cybersecurity, just as we have been part of the frontline defense when it comes to physical security issues for decades. The goal of this conference is to empower attendees with real tools and knowledge to do just that.”
