ISC West 2015—My Day-by-Day Doings

April 10, 2015Amy Canfield

Wrapping it up at ISC West 2015/Friday/Show Day 3 I put in a phone call to Jake Parker, SIA's director of government relations, about every other month. Jake gives me the rundown on activities on Capitol Hill that have direct impacts on the physical security industry. I then report on those impacts for Security Systems News. Jake is an invaluable source for SSN, but I've never had the chance to meet him face-to face until now. We finally sat down together at ISC West and had a friendly conversation...
