Nedap always thrives to be in touch with users in the industry to learn about the challenges

Nedap will present on the vulnerability of physical security systems to cyber attacks at the ASIS conference

Nedap is diamond sponsor of the ASIS European Security Conference & Exhibition, just like the last 2 editions of the conference. Besides the sponsoring of the well-known Welcome Party, Nedap will also be actively present during the ASIS Conference & Exhibition the 7th and 8th of April in London. At this conference, Nedap will present on the fact that physical security systems today are vulnerable to cyber security attacks. This needs to be addressed – but by who?

Physical security vulnerability

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 to physical access control systems. “Consequently, access control systems are currently vulnerable to cyber-attacks which can have 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?”

Nedap's role at ASIS European Conference & Exhibition 2016

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 is organising the Welcome Party – the annual opening of the event that has proven to be very successful and well-perceived by its visitors. Moreover, Nedap participates in the panel discussion, presents at the Technology & Solutions Track and can be found in the exhibition area. Why? Sieger Volkers, Managing Director of Nedap Security Management explains: “Nedap always thrives at being in touch with users in the industry to learn about the challenges they’re facing so we can develop solutions that help them 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.
