Two Great Causes, One Great Day

December 15, 2021Cory Harris, Managing Editor

Networking. Partnering. Getting together. Having fun. Showing support. Those were some of the thoughts swirling in my head as I got in the car with my kids and headed up the Palisades Parkway on Saturday, Dec. 11, destination - Stony Point, N.Y. It was a dreary day outside, but we knew that once we arrived at Kirkbride Hall, the site of the first Moms in Security/Mission 500 Cornhole Tournament, the community venue would be filled with bright and cheery faces as we got ready for a fun afternoon...

Women on Board

October 27, 2021Cory Harris, Managing Editor

As I sit by my living room window looking out at all the gloom following a late-October Nor’easter, I’m smiling from ear to ear because today marks one of the prouder moments for all of us in the Security Systems News family. Why, you may ask? You don’t have to look any further than the main page of our website, as we made the announcement earlier today that three outstanding, brilliant women in the security industry – Kasia Hanson, Antoinette King and Min Kyriannis –...

Never Give Up ...

September 1, 2021Cory Harris, Managing Editor

I enjoy writing feel-good stories, and the story we posted today on our site is just that – a truly inspiring article on why you should never give up on your dreams. Min Kyriannis’s story is not your typical “Family immigrates to the United States in search of the American dream” scenario. It’s a lot more than that. Kyriannis grew up in New York in Flushing, Queens (which happens to be my hometown) and has worked in a variety of technology and security roles for...

An Inspiring, Courageous, Fulfilling Life Cut Too Short

August 11, 2021Cory Harris, Managing Editor

It’s not often that we at Security Systems News write an article that just tugs at your heartstrings and makes you want to hug your loved ones a little tighter. I just put together a feature that really tells a story of courage and inspiration that I wish had a happy ending, but unfortunately does not. The story of security coach/mentor Jeff Snyder is one that was brought to our attention by Min Kyriannis, CEO of Amyna Systems, who informed us that he passed away in June at the much too...

Jeff Snyder – A story of courage, strength and inspiration

August 11, 2021Cory Harris, Managing Editor

YARMOUTH, Maine—Jeff Snyder held many titles in his short life – recruiter, coach, husband, father, entrepreneur. But perhaps his greatest achievement was how he continued to influence and inspire so many security professionals, even while battling an insidious disease that would end his life much too early. Snyder accomplished a lot in his short life, balancing his athletic endeavors with his recruiting and coaching efforts in a way that could only be described as remarkable....

Breaking Barriers

July 7, 2021Cory Harris, Managing Editor

Two weeks ago, I blogged about the successful Moms in Security golf outing that four amazing women in our industry put together for a great cause. Feeding off that phrase – “amazing women in our industry” - something else happened that day at the golf outing that was the catalyst for this week’s blog. Following five hours on the golf course in 100-degree heat, I was about to have a fine meal of ribs, chicken and beans in the clubhouse. However, I was summoned by someone...
