ONVIF Speaks on Changing Security Landscape, Prominent Role of Standards at IAPSC 2017

SAN RAMON, Calif. – May 4, 2017. ONVIF®, the leading global standardization initiative for IP-based physical security products, announced today that it will speak at the annual conference of the International Association of Professional Security Consultants (IAPSC) on May 7-9, at the Sheraton Austin Hotel at the Capitol in Austin, Tex. The IAPSC’s 2017 conference focuses on how the scope of a security consultant’s role is changing as the physical security industry evolves to address such issues as cyber/IT threats and crowd security.

ONVIF Communication Committee Chair Jonathan Lewit will speak to conference attendees on the changing security landscape and the rise of interoperability on Sunday, May 7, 2017, at 4:00 PM. The presentation will focus on how demand for interoperability is driving the expansion of the physical security market and how security consultants can use standards established by ONVIF and other groups to create best of breed customer solutions that integrate access control, video surveillance and other security and Internet of Things elements as part of a security deployment.

“Standards are figuring prominently in the evolution of the physical security market, as end user demand for big data, comprehensive management and intelligent analytics software increases,” said Per Björkdahl, Chair of the ONVIF Steering Committee. “Security consultants are an essential part of the security community and so it is important that we share how ONVIF and other standards can be resources for systems integrators and end users in this ever-evolving market landscape.”

Lewit also will participate in a panel discussion entitled “Looking into the Future: Five, 10 and 15 Years” that considers the requirements, challenges and needs of the end users of the future, both within the security market and beyond. He is joined on the panel by representatives from organizations across the security industry including RS2 Technologies, ASSA ABLOY, HID Global and MorphoTrak. ONVIF is a platinum sponsor of IAPSC’s 2017 annual conference.
