AMAG Spotlights Technology Trends at Security Engineering Symposium
Around 80 end users, consultants and integrators participated in the theme-based symposium, with a focus on compliance, AI and integrated solutions.
MIAMI — AMAG Technology presented its annual Security Engineering Symposium (SES) here Feb. 15-18 at the Trump National Doral Miami, with 80 end users, consultants and integrators in attendance.
Attendees took part in interactive presentations with thought leaders in compliance, artificial intelligence (AI), edge technology, insider threat and open technologies. They also received instruction how to utilize the right solutions to mitigate risks, ensure compliance and save money, according to an announcement.
AMAG Technology President Kurt Takahashi and Director of Business Development Kami Dukes opened the conference by welcoming attendees and introducing honored guests and AMAG staff. COO Howard Johnson and Vice President of Products and Partner Programs Jason Schimpf presented “Your Voice, Our Vision,” and discussed the company’s vision for the future, which is said to be based on customer feedback and the technology innovation needed to meet today’s threats.
A Platinum panel based on the theme, “Achieve More Together,” discussed security trends, customer needs and how best to move forward together to be successful. Two TED style talks featured “Open Ideas” with Dukes and Senior Director of Global Sales Justin Wilmas, and “People Within” with Business Development Manager Dan Bissmeyer.
“Our goal this year was to change and improve the format to provide digestible, useable content that was valuable to our attendees, and I believe we met that goal,” Dukes says. “Our diverse audience inspired impactful discussions surrounding topics that affect vertical markets dealing with compliance challenges, and I am proud to announce that together we raised nearly $9,500 for St. Jude Children’s Hospital.”
Ten certified technology partners worked together to deliver theme-based presentations to attendees. Platinum Level sponsors ASSA ABLOY and Vingtor Stentofon presented “Living on the Edge.” Gold level sponsors Axis Communications and Salient Systems presented “Take Tech to the Biz.” Gold sponsors LifeSafety Power and Winsted presented “Automation & Compliance.” Silver sponsors shared a breakout session and included Idemia, Iris ID, LiveSafe and Wavelynx.
“The Security Engineering Symposium provided a wonderful opportunity to network and build relationships with fellow security professionals,” says Jorge Gomez PE, RCDD, Managing Member/Project Engineer, J&A Engineering Consultants. “The event revitalized me and renewed my excitement about the security industry.”
During the closing banquet, a representative from St. Jude’s Research Hospital presented about the mission and advances St. Jude’s is making in pediatric cancer research. AMAG’s SES19 sponsors and attendees together raised $4,728.00, which was matched by AMAG for a record setting total of $9,456.00, according to the company.
“We are so thankful to our integrators, consultants, partners and end users for their generosity, and are thrilled to donate such a large sum to St. Jude,” says Dukes.
