IFSEC Global: “The Growing Significance of Converged Security”

In anticipation of the return of the popular Converged Security Centre to IFSEC International in 2020, industry experts, James Willison MA Founder, Unified Security, and Sarb Sembhi CISM, CTO & CISO, Virtually Informed, offer a closer look into why converged security will continue to be a major theme in 2020.
