Due to topics as cybersecurity and the Internet of Things the need for convergence between IT and physical security is more important than ever. Unfortunately today the 2 fields are still very separated. No one takes direct responsibility to ensure all aspects of the security system connected to the IT network are ‘trusted’ and cannot be compromised, for example. In France, regulations determining the security of security systems are already in effect. And following cyber security risks, regulations will also come to play in other countries. How do you assure the technology you invest in today will meet future security demands?
