The session is #2202 and will be presented on Monday September 12th at 1:45 – 3: 00 PM and is titled, “The Future of Security is Here” along with co-presenter Ron Lander, CPP. This is the 7th year Ron and Howard  present this session together. Their research begins weeks in advance of the annual seminar visiting exhibitor’s websites and previewing potential solutions. On the day before the exhibits open and early the morning of the first day they make their way through the exhibit halls getting additional hands and eyes on previews prior to the actual opening of the exhibit hall.

This session was previously titled “What’s new on the show floor”,  a seminar tradition led by the late Roy Bordes, offered to help explore and understand the myriad of technologies and services on display in the exhibit hall. A daunting task made less difficult for attendees.  This year the session is aimed at providing insights to where the future of security is headed as it relates to security control products and services,

Howard will also lead some“Pop Up” sessions tied to trending and breaking news events. Check out www.securityexpo.org.  See you there!
