Total Security Summit Unveils Seminar Program - Houston, TX

The Total Security Summit, taking place on June 1 & 2, 2015 in Houston, Texas, is rolling out key seminars for security executives. With topics including “Surviving an Active Shooter,” and strengthening physical barriers using access control, these informative 45-minute sessions allow executives to share their security knowledge in an open discussion format.

Senior Community Liaison of the Houston Police Department Stephen Daniel will host an active shooter seminar at the summit. During his presentation, he will provide a historic overview of active shooting in America, unveil the profile of an active shooter, cover response practices for an active shooter situation and use case studies to develop the best strategy for responding security officers.

Also unveiling a new seminar, Steve Surfaro, Industry Liaison, Axis Communications Chairman and ASIS International Vice Chair, will give insight into the power of social media and security technologies. Social media conversations have implications for a range of organizational functions including security operations. Understanding and reacting to those conversations can improve intelligence and provide security personnel with valuable information to assist in securing persons, property and assets. This session provides case studies of security successes through the use of trending security technologies, mobility and the Internet of Things.

Terry Gold will host two seminars on access control and card technology. Gold is a subject matter expert in digital identity management, authentication, and access control in both physical and information-based environments. He is the founder of IDanalyst, a vendor-neutral research and advisory firm specializing in identity management, credentialing and privacy. His firm provides guidance to end users on vendor and market capabilities, best practice for selection and methodology for deployment.

With data breaches at an all-time high, Patrick Hayes, certified Enterprise Security Architect and PCI-DSS QSA, will discuss how to recognize a security incident, evaluate the associated risks, and determine the most effective approach before, during and after an attack in his seminar, “Why Security Incidents are Different from IT Incidents.”

Attendance in the Total Security Summit Seminar Program is included for qualifying security executives for free. To participate in the summit and these seminars, register here. Your complimentary registration includes attendance at the summit, a personalized itinerary of meetings and seminars, accommodation at the JW Marriott Houston, and all meals and refreshments.
