Welcome to SecurityNext! While we certainly miss the in-person interaction (and beignets) of last year’s conference in New Orleans, Security Systems News’ team is very excited to host a virtual SecurityNext. In many ways, it’s a perfect way to explore this year’s theme of “staying connected and informed during unpredictable times.” The pandemic, and 2020 in general, highlighted the need for us to find solutions that bring us together as an industry—even when we’re far apart. We’ll cover some of those solutions, both existing and emerging, over the next two days. From breaking down the barriers to the adoption of AI, to building a cyber-physical business model, to thriving during the current pandemic (and how to apply what we’ve learned moving forward), SecurityNext is here to help you navigate, leverage, and profit from the latest technologies, trends, and products. SecurityNext Conference highlights include: •

Two keynote speakers (one to start each day)

Four general sessions

Virtual happy hour and “40 Under 40”/Security Legends awards ceremony

All conference materials available electronically

And much more

Once again, we’ve invited the who’s who of the security industry to speak, so please look through this program booklet to see all of the exciting sessions happening to ensure you get the most out of the conference. We hope you come away with some key takeaways and action items to help you evolve along with the industry. Reach out to me or the rest of the SSN team with any questions. We are here to give you the best conference experience possible.

Enjoy the conference!
