It’s good to see registration is open for the second annual Cyber:Secured Forum, and that it’s in my “neck of the woods.” The Westin Dallas Park Central will welcome this conference that helps connect cybersecurity, physical security and systems integration, hosted by ISC Security Events, PSA Security Network and the Security Industry Association (SIA). It’s to be held July 29-31, one of the hottest times in Dallas might I add, so plan on drinking lots of water! Hydration is key during our hot, Texas summers.

(Tip: Walk or Uber over to the Circle K convenience store at 12950 Coit Rd., which is right beside the Westin, and buy water for your hotel room. Usually our convenience stores will have 2 bottles for $2, or some sort of sell.)

According to the SIA website, attendees can look forward to topics including global cybercrime trends, tools and technology for better cybersecurity of physical security systems, monetizing cybersecurity services, cyber-hardening of security systems and more, presented by IT and physical security professionals. The goals of the conference are to connect and share information on risks and liabilities, learn how to respond to cybersecurity threats and work toward establishing security control standards across IT systems.

Plan on attending the July 29th welcome reception, plugging into sessions and strolling around the exhibits displaying various solutions related to cybersecurity, and don’t forget to find me buzzing around. In fact, reach out now, gschlueter@securitysystemsnews.com, and let’s get something on the calendar – a booth visit, coffee, lunch – I’m open to pretty much anything. And of course, I can help you figure out the best places to eat and visit during your stay in Dallas.

I’m excited to attend the forum, meet with you, learn more about cybersecurity trends and what’s going on in that world, and how cyber and physical are successfully merging to keep people and infrastructure safe.
