Next Generation SOC Analyst Tools: Drones and Robots with Computer

Online

Original Event Date: Wednesday, July 7, 2021 ~ 2:00PM - 3:00PM

Next Generation SOC Analyst Tools: Drones and Robots with Computer Image

Security operation center (SOC) analysts are overburdened, but there are technologies like AI-enabled robotics that are poised to radically improve the efficiencies of security operations.

This is a pressing need. More than half of surveyed SOC analysts report that they are not properly equipped to deal with new and emerging threats or have the necessary tools to appropriately respond. This can leave a gaping hole in an organization's ability to manage risk and ensure business continuity.

Although automated technologies now exist, manual processes are commonplace and exacerbate the issue, placing even more of a burden on the analysts. Nearly 75% of SOC analysts spend hours, even days, manually investigating a single threat when edge AI deployed on a robotic device can cut that time by 90%. While investing many resources into a single threat, a third of prioritized alerts fail to be investigated as additional alerts are received, while another third of alerts are false positives.

New technologies like security drones, robots, advanced sensors, and computer vision are now revolutionizing the way that security intelligence is automatically gathered, displayed, and prioritized. The leveraging of these technologies and their further integration into security operations will re-shape traditional observe and report positions while increasing demand for highly-trained SOC analysts. Entirely new proactive workflows will be created to increase both security and efficiency for organizations.

In this roundtable, experts in the field will be discussing the role technology and AI will have in creating the Security Workforce of the Future

The Security Technology Gap: How to Keep Up In A Constantly Evolving Landscape

Online

Original Event Date: Thursday, March 4, 2021 ~ 2:00PM - 3:00PM

The Security Technology Gap: How to Keep Up In A Constantly Evolving Landscape Image

Security is more in demand than ever before. The global market for private security services is now worth an  estimated $240 billion—a number greater than the GDP of 100 countries. An uncertain world is a major driver of demand for private security services, but today’s security clients expect more than protection, they expect security services to bring complete transparency and certainty to the people, facilities and assets they protect. ​In today’s charged environment, it’s not enough to provide protection. Accountability and transparency must be a driving force behind everything security firms do. Customers and the public expect nothing less.
In an increasingly demanding and competitive environment, technology is separating the leaders from the laggards. Harnessing new technology can improve your services, increase the value you offer to customers, and automate many administrative and operations tasks so more focus can be dedicated to growing the business rather than constantly reacting to problems. It can also provide indisputable evidence to quickly dismiss any false claims, thereby lowering your risk profile. ​
Technology allows you to:​
• Keep up with the competition​
• Decrease your risk profile and the chance that an incident proves costly to the business
• Level the playing field no matter the size of your organization​

Listen Up – How and Why Network Audio is Changing the Surveillance Landscape Image

The surveillance industry is changing fast, and network audio capabilities are at the heart of some of the industry’s most important advancements. For the past few decades, audio surveillance has lived in the shadow of video surveillance; however, a standalone or video augmented audio deployment serves as a force multiplier in any security solution. For example, audio can be used in security scenarios for threat detection, alarm verification, two-way communication, and improved situational intelligence. Moreover, there are many non-security, business related benefits for an audio surveillance solution particularly in the area of retail. Join us for an informative discussion covering everything you need to know about deploying a successful audio surveillance solution. Specialists from SIA member companies, Axis Communications and Louroe Electronic, will help attendees discover:

  • The benefits and importance of network audio in modern surveillance projects
  • How to navigate the laws and requirements that affect an audio deployment
  • Strategies for optimizing the usage and effectiveness of microphones and loudspeakers
  • How to unlock the power of audio analytics to enhance your surveillance capabilities
