ONVIF, the global standardisation initiative for IP-based physical security products, has announced that it will be presenting at TechSec Solutions 2017 (which runs on 27-28 February at the Delray Beach Marriott Hotel in Palm Beach County, Florida) as part of a Panel discussion on standards, Best Practice, cyber security and the Internet of Things.
Jonathan Lewit, chair of the ONVIF Communication Committee, will be speaking on behalf of ONVIF and is be one of four panellists discussing ‘The Future of IoT: Taming Security’s Wild West’. Other speakers include Neil Lakomiak of Underwriters’ Laboratories, Mitchell Klein of the Z-Wave Alliance and Jim Coleman of Operational Security Systems. The discussion is to be moderated by Paul Ragusa, Editor of Security Systems News.
“Standards are an essential part of the conversation when considering any scenario in which disparate elements must work together to provide actionable intelligence or automation, which the Internet of Things often seeks to do,” said Per Björkdahl, chairman of the ONVIF Steering Committee. “Jonathan will bring an ONVIF perspective to the debate, shedding light on how standardisation and ONVIF specifications can build vital bridges between clients and devices and, indeed, between IP-based systems.”
Lewit, who also serves as director of technology leadership for Pelco by Schneider-Electric, will touch on the array of connected devices and open platforms in the market that use common communication protocols to work together, including smart homes, buildings and cities.
The speakers will examine how standards, the establishment of Best Practice, interoperability, cyber security and other trends are helping to shape the future of the physical security industry.
Lewit will be speaking on Monday 27 February at 9.30 am. For more information visit: www.tecsechsolutions.com
