As I'm watching the weather forecast for Maine predict a drop into single digits temperatures, I can't help but think about the great weather we had in Delray Beach Florida for this year's TechSec Solutions conference, held Feb. 27 and 28.

Many topics in the industry impact more than just one sector, vertical or business. Drones, IoT, cybersecurity, biometrics—these technologies have many different applications and their changes and developments have a wide impact. This year, we wanted to continue the conversation on biometrics after a...

March 1, 2017Spencer Ives

The first kind is 'incremental.' Like small waves on a shore, the impact of incremental changes are hard to measure at first but [they] add up over time.
