Thief,” and the show’s security consultant, ASSA ABLOY’s

Rainey and Santamorena will present common home invasion
misconceptions and best security practices during their
keynote, to take place at 8:30 a.m. on Aug. 24 at the ISC
East host site, the Jacob Javits Convention Center.

Santamorena, a Physical Security Professional (PSP) with

40 episodes of the television series and has been
responsible for organizing the electronic security
solutions that have been presented on the show.

family is then provided with security fixes that sometimes
include the installation of an electronic security system.
