IFSEC International 2018 will host a dedicated learning and demonstration area where visitors will benefit from a real-time immersive experience of integrated physical and cybersecurity.
Networked systems and applied technologies are presenting security management professionals with rising levels of information outputs and data, which are rapidly becoming core aspects of their business strategies. The business intelligence available from this deepening level of integration is now a core competency, providing commercial, industrial and government users with unparalleled levels of insight.
However, these systems also represent major security vulnerabilities; the nature of their networked capabilities means there is a strengthening need for higher levels of understanding and vigilance in combating threats to information security. It’s a simple equation: greater complexity of technologies will lead to greater threats. This is where IFSEC, Vidsys and their partners can provide the solutions.
In this new world of converged security networks and information software, IFSEC is pleased to announce the introduction of the Converged Security Centre at this year’s show, taking place at ExCeL London between 19-21 June. IFSEC has worked closely with key thought leaders in this space, including James Willison, Founder, Unified Security Ltd, and Sarb Sembhi CISO, Virtually Informed Ltd.
Cross-functional security teams
Together they have long advocated the use of converged technological solutions managed by cross-functional security teams to identify and mitigate security risks to organisations. In the development of the centre, IFSEC and Unified Security recognised the capabilities of Vidsys’ CSIM solution and their partners.
The Converged Security Centre will be powered by the experts at Vidsys, the pioneering architects of Converged Security and Information Management (CSIM), to offer visitors a real-time immersive experience of an integrated cyber physical SOC, demonstrating ways to enable multi-disciplinary security teams to respond to the whole range of security risks across an enterprise.
