Global Security Forum

29-30 November – Room AlfaZeta

With people gaining unauthorized access to premises, restricted areas and networks, installing malicious software, downloading viruses, and giving private credentials to friends or colleagues, the task of protecting property has become ever more complex.

What level of security can we expect from traditional and emerging access control technologies?

How far are we from completely automatic buildings that cater for our safety and comfort in our private and professional environments?
