YARMOUTH, Maine—Security Systems News is excited to announce its TechSec Solutions conference, Feb. 25-26, 2019, in Delray Beach, Fla., will include a Security Industry Mega Panel featuring leaders from the industry’s top associations and organizations, who will come together to give their perspective on, and vision for the future of security.  

The session brings together Don Erickson, CEO, Security Industry Association, Merlin J. Guilbeau, CEO, Electronic Security Association Inc., Michael Gips, Chief Global Knowledge and Learning Officer, ASIS International, and Bill Bozeman, President and CEO, PSA Security, a global system integration collaborative, to look at the current state of the industry, new trends and technologies that are impacting, disrupting and shaping the industry, and what the more successful companies are doing to stay relevant and profitable.

Each of the panelists brings a wealth of experience, knowledge and industry perspective to the session, and each of them spoke about how excited they are to be able to get together on one session to provide a four-dimensional view, so to speak, of the industry.

“I’m looking forward to participating on the TechSec Mega Panel with my esteemed colleagues discussing the current disruptive state of the industry and how new trends and technologies will shape the industry moving forward,” Guilbeau told SSN.

Gips added, “We’ve seen many examples of successful technical convergence of physical and cyber security systems. But convergence of reporting lines, departments, personnel, policies, and procedures has lagged behind. What’s taking so long, and is complete convergence inevitable?”

In addition to taking on the big themes, trends and topics of the day, this mega panel will also answer questions from the audience during a devoted Q&A portion at the end of this extended session.

Bozeman is also presenting the day one keynote, an “Integrator State of the Union,” giving a unique glimpse at the key technology trends impacting integrators and the industry today, while looking at which ones have the greatest potential and present the greatest challenges moving forward.

He will also look at what the most successful integrators are doing today to navigate the ever-changing playing field within security, from increasing their company valuation, to moving to a more managed services, recurring revenue-based business model that is becoming more prevalent today.
