Back home on the East Coast today after a very busy ISC West. (Sorry for the delay in posting, my flights' wi-fi was not working. I also had flight delays, and it was a very long day getting back here.)
Friday I spent time with David Gurulski and Curtis Cole from BRSLabs discussing rules-based cameras vs. the company's behavioral recognition offerings. Management's time saved was a key theme. I wrote recently about one of their recent projects at Port Fourchon in Louisiana.
At Quantum Secure's booth, Rochelle Thompson introduced me the new "SAFE for CIV" software, which closes the physical identity management gap between PIV and non-PIV badge holders for government agencies
OnSSI's Moshe Levi, product manager, emphasized the importance of mobility in security surveillance. I also got a look at the LiveVest, worn by SWAT teams and security guards, that contains three cameras. Very Bond-esque.
David Bunzel, executive director of PSIA expressed his optimism that CSOs are becoming more accepting of industry standards. "They're becoming less proprietary," he said.
I floated around the trade show floor after the above-mentioned meetings and then had a lovely dinner with my co-workers before calling it an early night.
At the airport early on Saturday, the TSA officer I encountered was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed! Such a welcome! I've written much about the problem-plagued TSA, but on this most recent trip, I found the security officers to be helpful, kind and personable.
I'll be writing more about ISC West findings in the coming weeks, but I'm headed to Chicago on Tuesday for the ASIS 2013 Media Tour in Chicago. I'm impressed with the agenda. More about that to come, of course.
