Vidsys CEO Shares Guest Article on Security Info Watch: How CSIM Can Facilitate Crisis Communications

Security Info Watch featured the following guest article from Vidsys CEO James Chong. See an excerpt below.

It’s practically a given that the decisions organizations make during the window of time from when an emergency situation begins to when law enforcement arrives are crucial. Unfortunately, the time it takes to respond may not allow the type of intelligent decision-making that would improve outcomes in a crisis.

According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, average police response times to emergency situations range from 11 minutes to an hour. Department of Homeland Security research reveals that the average duration of an active shooter incident at a school is 12.5 minutes, while the average time it takes for law enforcement to arrive is 18 minutes. (DHS)

When working to resolve a situation, effective communication and coordination among multiple sources include collecting sensor data from multiple vantage points, correlating the data, and then interpreting and sending those insights to first responders. The time it takes to respond to an emergency situation can mean the difference between life and death. That’s where a Converged Security and Information Management (CSIM) platform allows organizations to minimize the amount of time it takes to sort through data, determine appropriate actions and respond.

3 Trends We Expect to See at GSX 2018

With the Global Security Exchange (GSX) Conference a few days away, Vidsys is excited to be an active part of the many presentations, demos and the conversations around innovation in the security space.

After 63 years as the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits, the newly rebranded GSX is the security industry’s flagship event. The organization expects to attract 550 exhibitors and more than 20,000 operational and cybersecurity professionals from all over the globe.

The exhibit hall will be transformed into a learning lab environment featuring thousands of security products, technologies, and service solutions, as well as immersive learning opportunities designed to connect the current threat landscape, as well as emerging risks, with leading solutions available in the marketplace.

The Xcelerated Exchange Stage, where Vidsys Founder and CEO James Chong will speak, provides a forum for the critical discussions that need to take place between practitioners and solution providers to proactively address the current and future security landscape.

As we approach the conference, here are 3 top trends we expect to see at GSX this year.

Drones Take Video Surveillance to the Next Level – Drones, formally known as Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), are changing the face of security surveillance. New cameras, sensors and safety technology, in addition to a workable regulatory environment, make drones are not only practical but the preferred method for large venue surveillance.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) Takes Center Stage – Next-generation AI and video analytics technology are going to be center-stage at GSX. AI technology innovation will help further expand the application and use of AI and video analytics to solve real-world challenges. AI can help facilitate sophisticated risk or incident detection and automatic notification, which can support an overall security program immensely.

Physical and Cyber Security Converging – In 2018, convergence is finally being received and understood as a critical element of security as being part of a larger risk management area. This includes cybersecurity, logical security, merging with physical and electronic security when all combined creates a converged security solution. As we now are seeing, organizational convergence where CSOs are in charge of both physical and cyber security, and technologies in the industry. We believe that this is an exciting movement towards where the future of the Internet of Things (IoT is happening)

What’s Next for PSIM? Converged Security Gives Rise to CSIM

Over the past 10 years, Physical Security Information Management (PSIM) has evolved tremendously outside of categories such as Video Management Systems (VMS), Access Control and Intrusion Detection, and companies worldwide have been using PSIM capabilities as a way to differentiate. Fast, integrated platforms offering real-time data and quick-reacting security solutions lay the foundation for this new digital movement. But as the security market continues to grow more crowded, creating reliable value-adds is an ongoing challenge for both vendors and integrators.

Legitimate PSIM is intelligent software that converts massive amounts of data into meaningful and actionable information by filtering and correlating the data based on time, location, duration, frequency, and type, and according to recent research, is estimated to be worth 112.43 Billion USD by 2021. While the definition of PSIM is often misunderstood as an integration platform or a command and control platform, the true nature of PSIM enterprise software is its capability to connect to other systems and subsystems including sensors and security and non-security related devices.

As PSIM has gained awareness globally, the demand for the software has increased and is driving large-scale projects, including many requests from U.S. federal government agencies. With customer and business process needs constantly evolving, software platforms must advance as well.

As innovations in PSIM continue, the platform has started to naturally shift towards a new platform, Converged Security and Information Management (CSIM).

CSIM extends software abilities beyond physical security by capturing and correlating data from multiple IT-security systems and information management systems. With capabilities for large-scale, widely dispersed customers, this advanced platform can be leveraged to support Smart City and IoT applications, in addition to a variety of use cases such as supply-chain systems, building management, logistics management, and manufacturing. CSIM can support customers globally where enhanced Enterprise Data Visualization and Enterprise Business Intelligence are integral features for reporting in real-time. Overall, the capabilities go beyond security and risk management by offering insights that can drive intelligent business decisions.

As the transition from PSIM to CSIM continues, there is a more formal cooperation between previously contrasting functions like physical security and IT security, and a substantial union between CSOs and CIOs has formed, encouraging organizational and operational convergences to align. In order to become more efficient and reduce risk to the organization, merging functions involves both process and accountability, accomplishing true business integrations around risk and compliance.

The shift to CSIM software can be leveraged globally by organizations and multi-site enterprises to garner beneficial, real-time situational awareness and management abilities, and can consolidate big data analytics tools, social media, and other intelligence inputs and tie in internal challenges with external threats. Now, enterprise leaders can have an extensive understanding of where threats are happening and their potential impact, allowing a more precise understanding of when and where crucial resources may be needed.
