Schneider Electric Enlists Tom Ridge to Keynote Symposium


Former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge has been selected by Schneider Electric to keynote its 2009 Intelligent Security Symposium on Nov. 5 in New York City.

Following the theme of “Where Intelligent Buildings and Security Converge,” the complimentary event includes a variety of informative breakout sessions and an expo featuring security companies demonstrating the latest security technology.

Ridge was secretary of Homeland Security from 2003 to 2005. He is also a former governor of Pennsylvania and served in the U.S. House of Representatives. His keynote address will outline how countries, governments, organizations and businesses in the U.S. and around the world are threatened by international terrorism and how they can best meet this threat.
