Integrators: Making money on big security data

 - 
Wednesday, December 11, 2013

When I met with my TechSec advisory board this past summer to talk about TechSec 2014, one of the topics the group wanted to make sure we talked about was big data. We had an excellent primer on big data at TechSec 2013, thanks to Axis’ Steve Surfaro and EMC’s Patrick Snow. For this year’s conference (Jan. 28-29 in Delray Beach, Fla.), we wanted to take a different tack.

I"m really pleased with the idea we came up with. We've asked four leading integrators to discuss how they’re helping their customers mine and synthesize data from their video and access control systems.

Kratos CTO Chris Peckham is going to moderate the educational session that will feature these integrators: David Coleman of Avrio RMS; Nigel Waterton of Aronson Security Group; Robert Locke of Open Innovation (part of Tyco); and, Don Zoufal of SDI.

The discussion will center on how the data is extracted, what kind of business intelligence that data provides and in what format. Each integrator will focus on the data mining they're doing in a specific vertical market including city surveillance, airports and retail.

Sound good? You can register for TechSec here.
