Access control cyber security in focus at ASIS event

Nedap is taking an active role this week at the ASIS event in London with diamond sponsorship and heading an important debate on the provision of IT security for physical security systems
Access control cyber security in focus at ASIS event

Nedap is once again diamond sponsor of the ASIS European Security Conference & Exhibition after two previous years of sponsoring the event. As well as sponsoring the well-known Welcome Party, Nedap will also be actively present during the ASIS Conference & Exhibition between the 7th and 8th of April in London.

Nedap will make use of the event to present the fact that physical security systems are vulnerable to cyber security attacks, a problem that certainly needs to be addressed – but by whom?

Access control systems are often not perceived as being IT systems connected to the network. Due to this lack of awareness, the requirements to secure IT systems are not yet imposed on physical access control systems. “Consequently, access control systems are currently vulnerable to cyber-attacks which can have a dramatic impact on the protected premises”, says Daryn Flynn, Business Development Manager at Nedap Security Management. “These risks can no longer be accepted by the security industry, so the question is raised: who should take responsibility?”

As a thought-leader in the security industry, Nedap plays an important role at the ASIS European Conference & Exhibition. That is why, for the third time in row, Nedap has organised the Welcome Party – the annual opening of the event that has proven to be very successful and well-received by its visitors. Moreover, Nedap is participating in a panel discussion, presenting at the Technology & Solutions Track and can be found in the exhibition area.

Sieger Volkers, Managing Director of Nedap Security Management explains why: “Nedap always thrives on being in touch with users in the industry in order to learn about the challenges they’re facing so we can develop solutions that help them to overcome these challenges. Also, as a manufacturer we see it as our responsibility to help customers by sharing knowledge. And not just our knowledge, but also the knowledge that sits with experts in the field. ASIS is a great opportunity to do exactly this.”

Nedap will discuss the vulnerability of access control systems to cyber-attacks on Thursday 7th April at 14:50 GMT. You can meet the team and find more information on the topic at their stand C9. The ASIS Welcome Party, powered by Nedap will take place on 6th of April 2016 in the Leadenhall Building on the evening of the 15th ASIS European Security Conference & Exhibition in London.
