How Convergence Is Changing the Relationship Between Security and IT

The convergence of physical security and IT has been a topic of primary interest and discussion for many years. Still, this topic is far more timely today with the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT). The demand for more data has altered the way people and businesses connect and collaborate, and as the growth in network connectivity and Web-enabled devices increases, so too does the need for greater security of physical assets, networks, and valuable corporate data.

As a result, there is now a growing dialogue between IT, cybersecurity, and physical security teams to help gain knowledge of how to best collaborate. Organizations must continue to communicate closely to assist in determining vulnerabilities more proactively, allowing businesses to investigate threats more intelligently.

But even as the worlds of physical security and IT have collided, there are some very critical differentiators in how the two manage their specific businesses. While cybersecurity, governance, and controls are paramount in IT, these processes are relatively absent on the physical security side of any business. And unfortunately, hackers are increasingly taking notice.

The time to understand how to combine technology, personnel, and best practices more efficiently and securely is now. And we want to help you gain insight into data that can help your organization achieve your goals around convergence. That’s why we’re pleased to be hosting an interactive webinar, What Every CISO Needs to Know About Physical Security, at 10 AM on Thursday, November 7, 2019.

What: Webinar: What Every CISO Needs to Know About Physical Security
When: Thursday, November 7, 2019 at 10 AM PT
How: Register here

Presented with D6 Research Analyst Terry Gold, the discussion will highlight how the separation between information security and physical security has created an unintended gap in shared best practices and principles, leading to different priorities, perspectives, and methodologies. This webinar will provide succinct insight into the current state of physical security concerning the impact on a CISO’s core objectives.

The physical security market is entering an evolutionary phase that will completely redefine best practices, developments, and the vendor landscape. Traditional methods and solutions will no longer be valid and the impact will be far-reaching for everyone: end-users, vendors, channels and even external stakeholders. Be prepared for how these trends will impact your business by joining us for this interactive event.
