Wednesday, July 19, 2017

The PSA Security Network, a security and systems integrator cooperative with headquarters in Westminster, Colo., is accepting presentations through Aug. 4, 2017 for its TEC 2018 annual conference. Proposals can be submitted at www.psatec.com/cfp.

TEC 2018, which will be held at the Sheraton Downtown Denver in Denver, Colo., March 12-16, 2018, is a premier education and networking event for all professional systems integrators in the security and audio-visual markets. TEC features education and certification programs, networking, and dedicated exhibit hours designed to advance the skills and expertise of industry professionals nationwide. This training venue is open to all industry professionals and is designed to meet the educational needs of all employees within an integrator’s organization.

PSA Security Network’s president and CEO Bill Bozeman told Security Systems News that the move from Westminster—where the conference had been held for several years—to downtown Denver fro 2018 was needed to accommodate the growth of the show.

“The hotel [Downtown Denver Sheraton] is bigger, so we look forward to having everyone under one roof,” Bozeman told SSN. “In addition, I think some of our younger members and supporters are going to enjoy being in downtown Denver, where there is so much to do.”

The education program will deliver sessions tailored to physical security and audio-visual integrators focused on emerging technologies, critical issues in the industry, and tool development to augment attendees’ knowledge needed to continue to drive these industries forward. Sessions will be selected that serve a variety of disciplines including business management, sales and marketing, HR and recruiting, project management and operations, and installation and service.

Proposals are welcome for both certification programs and general education sessions for the security and audio-visual markets. All sessions must be unbiased and minimize commercial references and overt branding. Submissions are evaluated based on topic relevance, speaker expertise, and originality of the content. Additional guidelines are available within the call for presentations submission tool.

Accepted and approved presenters will receive complimentary registration to TEC 2018 and will have the opportunity to solidify their reputation as an industry resource and subject matter expert while expanding their own professional network and gaining access to strategic partnerships. PSA does not pay honoraria or expenses for accepted proposals.

Where integrators can go for cybersecurity advice, expertise

 - 
Wednesday, September 9, 2015

Researching cybersecurity is eye-opening, PSA Security Network CEO Bill Bozeman told me during a recent call about PSA's cybersecurity program, which is moving into its second year.

Bozeman said that "when and if" a cybersecurity breach occurs in a physical security system, integrators will be "in the line of fire" in terms of liabillty.

With the objective of "educating our partners about cybersecurity so they can mitigate the risk," PSA has formed partnerships with cybersecurity service providers and manufacturers who have "proven expertise" in cyber security.

Among the partners is a law firm that specializes soley in cybersecurity law for physical security companies. In my opinion, that alone should make integrators think twice about ignoring cybersecurity education.

Bozeman emphasized that PSA is not in the business of certifying or testing any products or services. Rather, Bozeman has been working with a group of cybersecurity experts and some integrators to "vet" partners for integrators.

PSA is launching a webinar series to introduce cybersecurity partners to integrators and "set up potential parnterships." The series launches this month and will go through April.

PSA has also come up with a checklist of "Six things integrators can do now" to protect their businesses. Here's the list. More details are available here.

1. Conduct a cybersecurity assessment

2. Educate your team

3. Purchase cybersecurity insurance

4. Update your contracts

5. Choose cyber-hardened products

6. Educate your customers
