Infusion of youth making the industry better

February 3, 2021Paul Ragusa, Editor

One thing we can all agree on is the importance of attracting young and diverse talent to the security industry, a mission we here at Security Systems News take very seriously. Our “40 under 40” award program (formerly "20 under 40"), which is going on now for more than a decade, has allowed us to shine a light on, and help propel forward, the next generation of security industry leaders. There is nothing more gratifying than to see the dozens and dozens of past 40 under 40 winners go...

SecurityNext 2021 virtual conference program is here!

November 18, 2020Paul Ragusa, Editor

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...

SecurityNext webcast to feature industry thought leaders

August 12, 2020Paul Ragusa, Editor

As one of the last in-person shows to take place back in February, the first annual SecurityNext conference is the last memory I have of feeling the excitement and intimacy of being right there and rubbing elbows with so many industry leaders and peers, an experience that I am sure all of us miss since COVID-19 disrupted so much of what was essential to our industry. I feel fortunate that I was able to connect on that level and look forward to a time when we can get back to some level of normalcy...

A time to recognize young security professionals

May 20, 2020Paul Ragusa, Editor

As most of you know, each year for the past 13 years, the Security Systems News team has honored a diverse, talented mix of young professionals within the security industry. Known as “20 under 40” up until last year, when we changed it to “40 under 40” to encompass the growing security industry and to include security consultants into the mix for added depth and perspective, once again, we are searching for our next “40 under 40” class of consultants, end users, integrators and monitoring...

Monitoring Matters

A month of travel and education

February 19, 2020Ginger Hill, Managing Editor

February, the month of love, captures the hearts of some with flowers, chocolates and cute stuffed teddy bears, but for me, it's travel that warms my heart and this month is shaping up to be what I call my “travel trifecta.” First it was New Orleans, now Grapevine, Texas and next is San Diego. Having just recently returned from “N'awlins” from our show, SecurityNext, which was a huge success, I am currently in the midst of attending Milestone's MIPS 2020, focusing on the power...

TSA's quest to merge cybersecurity and information technology

January 15, 2020Ginger Hill, Managing Editor

We're about two weeks into the new year, and suffice to say, gearing up for travel is top of mind for security professionals. The “big” industry shows always seem so far away at this point, but before we know it, ISC West will be here in March, followed by ESX in June; GSX in September; ISC East in partnership with ASIS NYC in November; and more. In addition to these, are the smaller, boutique-type events, such as our SecurityNext conference in February (It's not too late to register,...

9 tips to stay cyber safe while traveling

October 9, 2019Ginger Hill, Managing Editor

As October presents itself in terms of pumpkin-spiced “everything,” cooler temps, colorful leaves, National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) (ICYMI - we are 2019 Champions) and the announcement of SecurityNext's program, Fall is a whirlwind of excitement!
