Convergint hosted an evening of networking, food, and drinks at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium Delta 360 Club as part of the company’s participation in this year’s GSX Conference in Atlanta. The event kicked off with keynote speaker Vice Admiral Kevin Donegan (ret), Convergint’s cybersecurity and strategy expert, who discussed mitigating the relationship between cyber and physical security and mitigating risk in today’s ever-changing security landscape.
The key challenges clients are facing include the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain issues, inflation, chip shortages, the growing threat of costly ransomware attacks, and protecting systems, networks, and programs from cyberattacks. Security professionals are no longer simply responsible for installing cameras, access control systems, and security sensors and devices. It is also imperative that we manage the IT Security of these devices and networks through software, firmware, and passwords. Every team member plays a role in keeping these devices secure, and when it comes to cyber protection, it is no longer a choice – it is imperative.
