It is only one month before leaders like you come together at The Great Conversation in Security on March 4 & 5 at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center on the Seattle waterfront.

If you have not taken a look at the faculty of this year’s Great Conversation in Security, then you are missing the energy that can come from the anticipation of the industry’s leading peer to peer forum.

We are so honored to host it again this year along with our new business partners ADT Commercial and Red Hawk Security.

Will you be part of the conversations?

As you know leadership is an art. So is practical execution of leadership principles. To drive innovations that optimize our security programs, we listen to executive leaders and their teams. You can learn from these leaders as well as meet with your peers and learn how they manage the evolving changes in security.

The speaker line-up for 2019 is inspiring. For example the conversation has published authors, educators and practitioners such as:

  • Scott Klososky, Founder of TriCorps, author, and a keynote at ASIS/GSX, on the integrated security model

  • Dr. Zafar Choudry, CIO of Seattle Children’s Hospital providing his path to an intelligent campus

  • Barbara Endicott-Popovsky, Ph.D., is Executive Director of the Center for Information Assurance and Cybersecurity at the University of Washington

  • Shawn Galloway, author and consultant on how to create an excellent culture around safety and security

  • Microsoft’s Center of Innovation technology lead, Joe Fairchild on the digital transformation of security

  • Cheryl Michaels, Co-Founder of Educational Safety, LLC and Associate Director Safety & Security at Seattle Pacific University on the intersection of culture, planning and the horrific active shooter incident on their urban campus

  • Ed Bacco, CSO of the Enterprise Security Risk Group and a panel that includes Dylan Hayes, Enterprise Security and Technology for Seattle Children’s, Joe Fairchild from Microsoft and Fallon Long, Security Management at Grant County PUD exploring the hidden costs of security and a new model to address it.

You can see the full agenda and the pedigree of each speaker by going to the Seattle agenda.

At the forum we follow our core education tracks of leadership, organizational strength, enterprise security risk management, intelligence, and technology to deliver insights into

  • The integrated security model

  • Highly leveraged security and safety cultures

  • The Intelligent Building

  • Infrastructure-as-a-Service

  • The path to digital transformation

  • A GSOC path for the Fortune 5000

We will also have case studies on the implementation and storage of digital video, the implementation of an enterprise security management platform, the roadmap to intelligent communications and the power of choice in video surveillance management.

We hear over and over again the need to understand how others are assessing, planning, and deploying risk mitigation, process optimization and next generation technology. Over 70% of those surveyed from last year initiated an organizational innovation or change based on their experience.

The stakes are high. The conversations are critical. At the Great Conversation, the discussions follow Chatham House rules. This means you will hear real stories; the good, the bad and the ugly, along with the metrics that really matter!
