The physical security industry is rapidly evolving into an all-IP landscape, complete with managed services. With this shift to connected digital platforms, the ability to leverage cloud computing for security applications affords both practitioners and integrators the opportunity to run aspects of their businesses—from video surveillance, to access control, virtual security guards, and activity tracking— more efficiently and at a lower cost. Yet with at least 50% of practitioners concerned with the cyber security of physical security practices, the industry must set its sights on protecting ALL assets—from tangible ones to personal and business data. This cloud computing marathon will examine the opportunities, benefits, and risks of cloud computing in physical security to provide a toolkit for the coexistence of physical and cyber security's transformative technologies.
