Drenovsky Speaks on How Convergence Impacts Data Networks and Security Industry

Today’s electronic security systems are more complicated and complex than ever. Solutions using Internet Protocols (IP) and cloud storage are the norm, and the convergence of network and security goes beyond just the products to the companies and people implementing them.

Speaking at the February meeting and seminar for the American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS) International Chicago Chapter, ESD Operations Director for Technology Jeff Drenovsky will be presenting “How Convergence and Data Networks Are Affecting the Security Industry.” Drenovsky will address how convergence is affecting not only the security industry, but the network infrastructure and audio-visual industries as well. Other topics expected to be covered include:

  • Application of sensor technologies
  • Intelligent building and office design
  • How network cabling and the latest wireless technologies are shaping next-generation security systems

The ASIS Chicago Chapter is one of the top ten largest chapters in the international organization, with over 700 members throughout the area. According to the organization, the goal of the chapter is to “promote safety and security in every realm of the profession, including healthcare facilities, campus safety, corporate/commercial real estate, the public sector, critical infrastructure protection, and distribution centers. Registration for the February 24 event is currently open.

Jeff freely shares his 30+ years of technical expertise as a telecommunications engineer, consultant, instructor, estimator, foreman, and more with professional organizations like ASIS to help advance ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.

Reach out to Jeff for more information on the convergence of data networks and security or other technology issues.
