ASIS 2017 delivers reinvigorated security education and networking in Dallas

A blockbuster keynote lineup, revamped education programme, revitalised networking events, and a reimagined exhibit floor energised ASIS International’s 63rd Annual Seminar and Exhibits (ASIS 2017) last week in Dallas, Texas. The show, organised by the association for security management professionals, convened September 25-28 and attracted 22,000 global registrants from 96 countries. The event was produced in partnership with InfraGard and ISSA and drew positive reviews from attendees, exhibitors, and industry partners.  ASIS 2017 attendance “There was an unmistakable buzz in Dallas. Despite several natural disasters around the globe in the weeks leading up to our show, security professionals came out in droves to exchange ideas, best practices, and experience first-hand the most innovative products and services on the market,” said Thomas J. Langer, CPP, 2017 president of ASIS International. “From the standing-room only education sessions to the jam-packed exhibit hall, ASIS fulfilled its promise to deliver the security industry’s premier event.” Keynote speakers share security perspectives Keynote speakers set the tone for each day, with George W. Bush, Mark Cuban, and Scott Klososky sharing their perspectives on the current threat landscape and the risks/potential of innovative technologies reshaping society and the way we do business. The Global Responses to Global Threats panel of international security experts focused on private-public sector collaboration, and Carey Lohrenz closed out the week with a call for fearless leadership. Eddie Sorrells, CPP, PSP, PCI and Chief Operating Officer/General Counsel of DSI Security Services commented, “I don’t remember a conference that had a more dynamic and impressive slate of speakers.” "From the energy on the show floor to the one-on-one executive-level conversations that occurred, I found great value in the opportunities ASIS 2017 provided"  ASIS education sessions The education program featured more than 180 sessions spanning the security spectrum from ASIS, InfraGard, and ISSA subject matter experts. New education formats—including deep dives, case studies, and mock trials—provided a more immersive and interactive learning environment for attendees at all experience levels. New this year, Global Access LIVE! provided live streaming of select education sessions and keynotes. First time attendee Rick Derks, CSO, FCS Financial, noted that ASIS 2017 offered “an opportunity to interact with thought leaders from both the operational and the cyber communities in meaningful discussions. The event was executed flawlessly, and I was impressed by the professionalism of everyone involved. Due to my positive experience, ASIS International now has a new member.” Veteran attendee Mike Howard, Chief Security Officer, Microsoft noted, “the changes implemented for this year’s event made a huge impact across the board. From the energy on the show floor to the one-on-one executive-level conversations that occurred, I found great value in the opportunities ASIS 2017 provided.” Reimagining the exhibit hall The reimagined exhibit hall featured more than 575 exhibitors showcasing new and emerging products and technologies such as machine learning, robotics, forensic analysis, and artificial intelligence. The floor also hosted two “impact learning” theatres, a career centre, international trade centre, virtual reality zone, and the ASIS Hub—a one-stop shop for all things ASIS including fireside chats, council booths, and livestream interviews from Security Guy Radio. “ASIS 2017 delivered a prime audience to promote our software solutions that leverage emerging technologies such as mixed reality, artificial intelligence and machine learning,” said Drew Weston, Director of Sales and Marketing, CodeLynx. “The addition of the high-quality content on the show floor not only offered us an opportunity to learn ourselves, but drove attendees and ‘buzz’ to the exhibition. We had consistent booth traffic and positive interactions with buyers, and have already reserved our spot for Vegas.” "The addition of the high-quality content on the show floor not only offered us an opportunity to learn ourselves, but drove attendees and ‘buzz’ to the exhibition" Exhibitor satisfaction was at an all-time high in Dallas, reflected not only in the feedback, but in space selection for ASIS 2018 in Las Vegas. Coming out of the 2017 event, 80% of the net square footage from the show floor has already been committed for 2018, with 35 companies increasing their space allocation. In addition, notable brands like Mobotix Corporation, Ford Motor Company, UrgentLink and others not exhibiting in Dallas have already committed for next year? Premier security networking event ASIS 2017 also enhanced its networking event line-up with an Opening Night Celebration on Sunday, September 24 at Gilley’s Dallas and the President’s Reception at AT&T Stadium on Wednesday, September 27. Both events drew significant crowds and provided ideal bookends to an intensive week of security solutions and professional development. In conjunction with the event, ASIS gave back to the Dallas community through its Security Cares program, featuring free security preparedness and prevention education for small/medium-sized businesses and community institutions. ASIS also awarded CityLab High School with a $22,000 grant and additional in-kind donations from Axis Communications to support campus-wide security upgrades. “The benefits of this show reach well beyond those who attended a session or toured the exposition floor,” said Peter J. O’Neil, CEO, ASIS International. “Attendees leave empowered with the information, professional network, and exposure to products and services they need to protect the people, property, and assets entrusted to their care. And throughout the year, they know they can turn to their ASIS community for support and peer advice. Our year-round commitment to excellence and reinvestment in the security profession is what differentiates the Society and our event.” ASIS 2018 takes place September 23-27 in Las Vegas, Nevada, in partnership with InfraGard, ISSA, and a robust lineup of supporting organisations.

MOBOTIX video surveillance solution protects Edmund Rice College, Sydney

Edmund Rice, formally Christian Brothers College, was established in 1926 and is an independent Catholic high school for boys located in the heart of the picturesque Illawarra district, to the south-west of Sydney. The founder of the Christian Brothers, Edmund Rice, lends the school its present-day name.   Installation of new surveillance system Since 2013 Edmund Rice College has invested millions to bring cutting-edge facilities to their students, including a first-class sports hall, state-of-the-art computing facilities, and new learning spaces both inside and out. The school’s current 1980s analogue security system was only semi-operational and not up to the essential task of protecting these assets. So, the headmaster called in Dean Scanlen from Forcefield Security to carry out repairs. Dean knew that continuing to repair the increasingly defunct technology was not a long-term solution: "I suggested, why not include the installation of a brand-new security system in the Sports Hall into the construction cost? I explained the savings that would be seen in the long term and how it was a perfect time to incorporate into the larger project.” The decentralised design of the MOBOTIX cameras with intelligent low bandwidth requirements allowed integration into the school’s existing network and MOBOTIX hemispheric technology meant fewer cameras cover larger areas. With licence-free regularly upgraded firmware, and cameras built to last and to stringent quality standards, MOBOTIX technology offered an economical long-term solution and was perfect for the school. Furthermore, as many areas to be covered were internal, the competitive pricing of the indoor range brought even greater savings upfront. "In order to convince them, I suggested that they try out one MOBOTIX camera. They used it for a month, and came back more than happy and ready to go ahead with the entire installation,” Dean explains.   Only authorised members of staff have access to review or download foot­age, with neither studentsnor teachers able to do so Mobotix video surveillance solutions A modern alarm system was fitted in the Sports Hall and MOBOTIX cameras were installed around the outside and inside of the building. A combination of M15s and D15 easily protected the exterior of the building and only a single i25, MOBOTIX hemispheric indoor camera, was needed to cover the entire sports hall arena. Positive results were seen quite soon afterwards, with the access reliable footage acting to reduce incidences of bullying and fighting. Extremely happy with the installation, the school were eager for the newly refurbished library to be secured next. By this stage the VMS (video management software) had been upgraded to the newly released MxMC (MOBOTIX Management Centre), making installation even simpler. In spite of its size, the library only required 2 indoor hemispheric c25 cameras to monitor the whole area. Q25s and D15s were installed to keep a watchful guard on the entrance and exterior respectively. Thanks to MxMC’s intelligent sorting of all parameters, which supports visual control and drag&drop, installation time was significantly cut. Pros of MOBOTIX decentralised technology MOBOTIX decentralised technology keeps bandwidth requirements extremely low, allowing a secure subnet to be installed on the school’s existing network without causing any extra burden. Indeed, at busy times, such as during class when students are using computer equipment, the cameras delay sending footage, storing it in a buffer designed specifically for this purpose. “IT didn’t even see an imprint of MOBOTIX on their network,” Dean explains. Live monitoring takes place in a local control room performed by security staff, and only authorised members of staff have access to review or download foot­age, with neither students nor teachers able to do so. Further measures were taken to protect the privacy of students in view of the new system, by disabling all microphones on the cameras during teaching hours. However, at night time, the microphones are switched on through a custom setting, so that the control room can speak to anyone on site using remoteGUARD. Edmund Rice College can now look to the future with reassurance, knowing that they have a scalable, flexible security system built to last Protection against vandalism The cameras have already had their first major win protecting computer equip­ment from vandalism. “Someone had been swapping the letters over on the keyboards in the computer room,” Dean explains. “Using MxMC, we reviewed the recordings and found perfect footage of the culprits in action. They were repri­manded and asked to pay for new keyboards. It had happened in the past and the school hadn’t been able to catch them, until now.” Edmund Rice College can now look to the future with reassurance, knowing that they have a scalable, flexible security system built to last. MOBOTIX decentral­ised technology made installation simple, with no new cabling nor additional infrastructure required. This, along with the great coverage provided by hemispheric technology and the lower price point of indoor cameras, meant a sophisticated security system was also affordable. And, because MOBOTIX firmware is licence-free and regularly updated, the school have the reassurance of knowing the system will remain cutting-edge for many years to come.

MOBOTIX CORP wins patent challenge against ComCam

USPTO issued a 47-page written decision siding with MOBOTIX CORP Following a request from MOBOTIX CORP to review the validity of U.S. Patent No. 6,975,220, the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) ruled that the main claims of the patent are invalid and will be cancelled. Back in 2013, the digital video surveillance patent had been asserted in lawsuits filed by Texas-based ComCam International Inc. against MOBOTIX CORP and several other companies. Inter partes reviews Documentation on the MOBOTIX camera model M1 published at the CeBIT trade fair in Hanover, Germany, in 2000 as well as third-party documents found through an extensive prior art search show that patent claims an invention that was already publicly known well before the filing of the application for the patent. On this basis, MOBOTIX CORP challenged the validity of the patent claims by petitioning the USPTO to do an “inter partes review” of ComCam’s patent. On April 28, 2016, the USPTO issued a 47-page written decision siding with MOBOTIX CORP and finding that virtually all of the claims are un-patentable. MOBOTIX CORP has successfully pursued several “inter partes reviews,” which is a procedure available only since 2012. In those proceedings, five patents were challenged resulting in 2 patents killed and 3 largely cancelled. In total, MOBOTIX CORP has achieved cancellation of 171 patent claims. “We do not oppose the protection of inventions through patents. MOBOTIX, as a driver for innovation in the IP video surveillance industry, itself has been granted numerous patents. However, it is objectionable to bring an infringement action based on overly broad patent claims that should have never been issued. We will defend ourselves vigorously against such claims and request ‘inter partes review’ to challenge and cancel them,” says Dr. Tristan Haage, CEO at MOBOTIX CORP, explaining the company’s corporate strategy.
