Back with a Vengeance

March 30, 2022Cory Harris, Editor

They say that whatever happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. But I’m going to go against the grain and say that my blog is all about what happened in Vegas last week at ISC West 2022. When I landed in Las Vegas, I had a feeling that security industry professionals were itching to get back to the premier trade show of the year after the COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted attendance at ISC West in 2021. After five days in “Sin City,” it’s safe to say that my projections...

Over the past several weeks, Publisher/President Sarah Flanagan, Editor Paul Ragusa, and...

Two Great Causes, One Great Day

December 15, 2021Cory Harris, 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...
