Thank You for Coming!

May 4, 2022Cory Harris, Managing Editor

I just want to celebrate! Yes, that may be a song by the group Rare Earth from 1970, but that’s also how I and my fellow Security Systems News colleagues feel after what was a fantastic and memorable SecurityNext conference in Nashville. We were so thrilled that we could host an in-person event for the first time since COVID-19 entered our lives in 2020. The enthusiasm of the attendees who ascended upon Music City for our conference last week was infectious, from the cocktail reception...

Counting Down the Days to Nashville

April 20, 2022Cory Harris, Managing Editor

Music City, here we come! We are just days away from the security industry’s must-see event of the year as we proudly present our SecurityNext conference at The Westin Nashville from April 25-27. The Security Systems News team is so excited that SecurityNext is back to an in-person format after the COVID-19 pandemic relegated last year’s conference to a virtual format, which is just not same, don’t you agree? There’s only one word to describe the lineup for this year’s...

Nashville, Here We Come!

April 6, 2022Paul Ragusa

With temperatures warming up here in chilly Maine – and sights, sounds and smells of spring, rebirth and renewal in the air – the team here at Security Systems News is gearing up for SecurityNext, which returns to an in-person event later this month, April 25-27, in Nashville, the music city. Coming off a successful and exciting ISC West in Las Vegas last month, the theme of rebirth and renewal seems fitting, as ISC West came back strong after a tough year in 2021 due...

Here’s the thing …

February 23, 2022Paul Ragusa

In preparing to announce this year’s recipients of our third annual Security Legend Award to probably the most well-known and liked couple in security, Christine and Andrew Lanning, I started to think back on all of the ways each of them has not only inspired and influenced me as an editor and person, but also the industry itself, as they are the epitome of selfless. They are givers, that much I am sure of, and the industry is so much better because of their tireless efforts. Over the past...

Hope “Springs” Eternal

February 2, 2022Cory Harris, Managing Editor

So what if Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning? To quote the Godfather of Soul James Brown, I feel good! Why, you ask? I’m in the process of booking my flights and hotels for ISC West in Las Vegas in March and our SecurityNext conference in April in Nashville, and I couldn’t be more excited to attend both of these shows, as I hope all of you are! The sad reality is that many of us been cooped up these last two-plus years, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, and are just itching...

Looking Ahead to 2022

December 8, 2021Cory Harris, Managing Editor

It’s the first week of December, and while I’m very excited about spending time with family and friends this holiday season – something we really couldn’t do last year – I’m also looking forward to what 2022 brings for all of us, COVID aside. While the pandemic wreaked havoc on the security world in myriad ways over the past 20 months or so, we started to see the industry bounce back in 2021, especially in the latter half of the year. In-person events gradually...
