By Spencer Ives NEW YORK—ISC East, to be held here Nov. 14-15, recently announced two keynote speakers for this year's event: Philip Hal- pin, senior vice president & head of global security for financial firm Brown Brothers Harriman, and James A. Gagliano, a retired FBI supervisory special agent, CNN law enforcement analyst, and adjunct assistant professor at St. John's University. "We really wanted to have a mixture across our comprehen- sive security needs spectrum; so, having one that's from a very prominent private sector com- pany in the financial services industry, Philip Halpin, and then the other, Jimmy Gagliano, has a long, incredible history in law enforcement and public safety," Will Wise, group vice president, security portfolio at Reed Exhibi- tions, told Security Systems News. Halpin, the first day's keynote speaker, has been with Brown Brothers Harrriman since 2014. Prior to his current role, he has served in the U.S. Marines and local law enforcement. Halpin has recently started working to change BBH's identity manage- ment and access, including con- vergence of physical and logical security. Halpin will be presenting, "Friend or Foe? Technology Dis- ruption and the Physical Security Industry." In this session he will discuss how he deals with the demands on security and people management, while encountering technology disruption. Halpin will also cover how technology has changed working and living, and how it will disrupt the physi- cal security industry. "He's going to really emphasize the opportunity and challenge with all of the technology disrup- tion and technology information, and what does that mean, run- ning a physical security depart- ment," Wise said. Gagliano, a West Point gradu- ate who served in the U.S. Army, was named supervisory senior resident agent of the NYO's Hud- son Valley Resident Agency in 2008, responsible for FBI opera- tions in the upstate New York counties of Orange, Dutchess and Sullivan. Gagliano was selected as the Deputy Legal Attaché in México City, México, in 2012, and he was appointed chief of staff, special assistant to the assis- tant-director-in-charge in 2015. Gagliano's presentation on ISC East's second day, titled "Twen- ty-First Century Best Practices: Reporting from the Front Lines on How Law Enforcement and the Security Industry are Con- fronting Emerging Threats," will discuss changes in law enforce- ment and security postures, recent responses to contemporary challenges, such as active shoot- ers, bombings, VIP protection, and drone applications. "He also will bring a strong leadership skills mentality to his talk. This will definitely appeal to all of the law enforcement, first responders, FBI," Wise said. "The other thing that he emphasized to me when we first started talking is how important the partnering is between the law enforcement, FBI, and the private sector." For the past several years, ISC East has typically only had one keynote speaker, Wise pointed out, and now the show is looking to bring in more. "We've definite- ly got good demand to add addi- tional thought leaders and then we've got a lot of great conference break out sessions, but really felt it was important to make sure we have a featured keynoter on the two days of the expo," he said. ISC East also features SIA Education@ISC, a free education program composed of more than ISC East announces keynote speakers for 2018 25 sessions on new and relevant technologies in the industry. Pro- vided by SIA, the SIA Education@ ISC East Program delivers all-new content on the most current busi- ness trends, technologies and lat- est developments in order to help security professionals learn from experts, keep up-to-date and take their security to the next level, the announcement said.
