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)
