All told, this year's program has something for everyone. We hope to see you in Delray Beach. S ecurity Systems News is excited to announce the education program for our TechSec Solu- tions conference, Feb. 25-26, 2019, in Delray Beach, Fla., at the Delray Beach Marriott. You can view the program and conference details on the TechSec Solutions website, www.techsecsolutions.com. This year's TechSec Solutions' theme—Securing a Connected World—looks at how new technologies are being used in real-life scenarios and how they are lever- aged by security professionals—integrators, consultants, manufacturers and end users— to provide cost-effi cient and highly effective security services and solutions, all for the bet- terment of the entire security industry. Last year, attendees gave the program strong marks, with 100 percent of attendees who completed our evalua- tion saying they "Would recommend TechSec to others" and "TechSec exceeded or met their expectations." Some of the highlights of this year's program include two keynote speakers. On day one, Bill Bozeman, CEO and president, PSA Secu- rity, will deliver an Integrator State of the Union, giving a unique glimpse at the key technology trends impacting integrators and the industry today, while looking at which ones have the greatest potential and present the greatest challenges moving forward. And on day two, Rob Simopoulos, founder and president, Defendify, will present Cyber and Security: Together, a Shared Vision, looking at how physical and cybersecurity are com- ing together like never before, creating both challenges and opportunities. In addition to two stellar keynotes, this year's Mega Panel to start day two brings leaders from the industry's top associations —the Security Industry Association (SIA), ASIS International and the Electronic Secu- rity Association Inc.—together with keynote speaker Bozeman, head of the world's largest system integration collaborative, to look at the current state of the industry, new trends and technologies that are impacting, disrupt- ing and shaping the industry, and what the more successful companies are doing to stay relevant and profi table. In support of this year's theme, there are two sessions looking at "Securing a Con- nected World," as well as sessions on secur- ing, storing and leveraging data, and one on protecting critical infrastructure featuring Colby Meshey and James Ell from the Penta- gon Force Protection Agency, who will join Kevin Didden, senior manager, Security Pro- grams and Administration, MTA Bridges and Tunnels, and Joe Morgan, Business Develop- ment Manager for Critical Infrastructure, Axis Communications. Plus, Gretchen Gordon, president and sales team transformation expert, Bravehe- art Sales Performance is presenting "How to Train and Retain a Tech-Savvy Sales Force" on day one. In this session, Gordon will explain how security com- panies, integrators and manu- facturers can improve sales per- formance, giving attendees an effective strategy on hiring and retention, while showing them the importance of adapting to stay profi table and relevant. And, as always, one of the highlights of the conference is the "20 under 40" Award Paul Ragusa Intelligent Solutions for a Safer World Learn more at us.dahuasecurity.com/solutions Education Retail Banking Hotel Transportation Aside from the obvious accommodations anticipated upon check-in, hotel guests also expect to feel safe and secure throughout their stay.
