Event security specialist to help educate ISC West attendees on the latest drone vulnerability to public safety

Boca Raton, FL –April 5, 2018: EventProtek, a leader in event security solutions, today announced that the company will be presenting at the ISC West show’s Unmanned Security & Safety Expo Complimentary Education program aimed at educating attendees on the drone vulnerability that can negatively impact public safety. The education program titled, “Invasion of the Drones: Should We Be Afraid Yet?” will take place at the ISC West Show at the Sands Convention Center in Las Vegas on Thursday, April 12th from 3:45 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. Mark Eklund from EventProtek and Nimo Shkedy from ApolloShield Counter-Drone Systems have joined forces and will be presenting on this important topic.

Developed by experts from Israel Defense Forces and currently serving more than 25 countries, ApolloShield is the world leader in detecting and blocking drone intrusions, as well as tracking down and arresting unauthorized drone operators. With current civilian US regulations prohibiting drone denial, ApolloShield offers a unique legal and safe choice for proactive directors of security who want to do more than just detect drone intrusions. Attendees can stop by booth #4137 for further information and to see first-hand how EventProtek and ApolloShield are working together to protect the public with the latest drone detection technology. With 6 million commercial and recreational drones sold to date, a completely new threat to Homeland Security, public safety, and corporate security is rapidly emerging as Security Directors are scrambling to deal with this vulnerability.

This educational seminar will answer several questions ranging from how to assess the risk of drones to finding the right drone detection and mitigation system available today. “After two years of studying critical infrastructure in the new England area, it’s very apparent that something could easily happen that will greatly impact life as we know it in the years to come,” states Mark Eklund, CEO at EventProtek. “I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge on drone security with ISC West attendees and using this event as a venue to help educate the public on the global commercial and recreational drone threats that exist today with the hopes of preventing a future incident from taking place.”

ISC West attendees can see the latest drone technology at the ApolloShield booth #4137. In addition, attendees who join the educational session on April 12th will also receive a VIP pass to an exclusive live product demonstration at 6 p.m. – location will be disclosed following educational event.  For further information on EventProtek, visit www.eventprotek.com or ApolloShield, visit www.apolloshield.com.
