Physical Security Access Control Systems are foundational security tools for modern security operations, but as they advance and become more complex, they also become more vulnerable to incomplete deployments as well as vulnerable to more threats, including cyber-attacks.  In order to address these vulnerabilities, the security industry needs to expand their practices in the installation and operation of Access Control Systems.  To support this goal, we will cover known vulnerabilities within the Access Control Systems themselves, the processes to mitigate the vulnerabilities (a.k.a. hardening), and ways to maintain a protective posture in the operation of Access Control Systems.

This webinar is sponsored by the ASIS Information Technology Security Council and ASIS Security Architecture and Engineering Council.
