How Cybersecurity, Edge Analytics, and AI Have Impacted the Design and Implementation of Physical Security Systems
Designing, implementing, and maintaining physical security systems used to be relatively easy. They were purpose-built systems designed to deliver specific security safeguards, while also providing a physical deterrent to criminal activity and forensic evidence for use in investigations and court. All that continues to change and further evolve with the development and implementation of intelligent networked system solutions driven by advanced AI-powered hardware and software solutions, thus moving away from specific purpose-built technology into multi-use business enablement technology. As a result, security system designers need to be fluent in several different disciplines ranging from mechanical and physical engineering to software development and programming, as well as cybersecurity. This presentation will explore the “new convergence” and science of physical security system design, and how systems integrators and managed service providers who were once relegated to supporting specific system classifications (physical security systems and networked systems, respectively) are often now competing on the same playing field having to demonstrate ROI while also ensuring the secure design and implementation of these IIoT devices.
