SecurityNext 2021 virtual conference program is here!

SecurityNext 2021 virtual conference program is here!


We here at Security System News are excited to announce the education program for our virtual SecurityNext conference — held over two afternoons on Feb. 24-25, 2021. This year’s virtual conference follows what was a highly successful inaugural SecurityNext in-person conference earlier this year in New Orleans, right before the pandemic changed in-person conferences for 2020 and the foreseeable future. I am sure we are all looking forward to getting back to some semblance of normalcy as soon as possible.

In the meantime, because we are all so distant, at least physically, from each other, the theme for SecurityNext 2021 is “Staying Connected and Informed” during unpredictable times. And this is what we aim to do with the speakers and content we have lined up for you, including deep dives into new technologies, trends and best practices for doing business and staying profitable during the pandemic, and beyond.

In the opening keynote, Breaking Down the Barriers to Adoption of AI, Jumbi Edulbehram, director, Business Development, IVA/AI-City, NVIDIA Corp., will examine the best ways to knock down the fundamental barriers to greater adoption of AI for creating smarter, safer spaces.

In the day two keynote, Making Sense of the Cyber-Physical Convergence, Antoinette King, key account manager – End User, Axis Communications, will demonstrate how physical and cybersecurity converge and ultimately encompass one overarching security program.

In addition to those great keynotes, we have several panels on both days featuring thought leaders and subject matter experts from across security. Sessions include:

  • Building a Cyber-Physical Business Model for Security.
  • Remote Workforce Roundtable: How to Survive and Thrive during Unpredictable Times.
  • What End Users Want (40 under 40 All Star Edition).
  • Technology Panel: The Power of AI in Security.

Another SecurityNext highlight is the SSN “40 under 40” and Security Legend virtual Award Reception on the end of day one, where we will honor this year’s incredible Class of 2020 “40 under 40” winners (to be announced in the December issue), as well as our two Security Legend Award winners (to be announced in the January issue).

Hope to see you, virtually, at least, in February! Click here for more on SecurityNext and to register.
