Technology Innovation Series

COVID-19 has radically changed the mission of security operations. Old methods of reacting to siloed security threats do not apply when dealing with pandemics, mass casualty incidents, remote workforces, climate events, social and economic unrest, supply chain impacts, and other disruptions. Organizations need to layout roadmaps to move from a reactionary, security-centric perspective to a proactive, intelligence-driven security posture that delivers rapid threat detection, instant and complete situational awareness, automated and adaptive SOPs, and robust coordination with internal stakeholders and external partners.

In the below video recording, Convergint Smart+Safe Cities subject matter expert Scott Frigaard highlights the benefits of fusion centers and details how they leverage innovative technology to enhance situational awareness and overall safety.

Watch the video below to learn more about these emerging technologies and their applications.

Originally Recorded Live at InSight Innovation Summit

Convergint’s InSight Innovation Summit was a digital transformation tradeshow event held May 18-20, 2021. Throughout the 3-day event, Convergint hosted Strategy Sessions, partner-sponsored Innovation Demos, and Executive Keynotes all discussing the latest game-changing technology and transformative solutions.


Scott enables the adoption of Smart and Safe City technologies and best practices. Smart Cities enhance the quality of life for their citizens by reducing crime, increasing economic development, streamlining mobility, and becoming more efficient in delivering services to their citizens. But cities can’t do it alone. They need a trusted technical advisor that can understand their unique challenges, articulate a long-term vision, implement common-sense solutions, and successfully navigate their complex landscape. Without that partner, Smart City programs won’t reach their full potential or return on investment. Scott has spoken frequently on the topic of data fusion, city-wide video surveillance, license plate recognition, and the need for integration of all physical security applications at many regional and national events including ASIS, International Association of Chiefs of Police, National League of Cities and Killer App Expo.
