The ASIS International UK Chapter’s Young Professional and Women in Security groups co-hosted an event on the ‘Future of the Security Industry?’.
The event discussed how the security industry could develop in the future, leveraging technological advances to support businesses and their clients. Examples of technological advances that were discussed during the session included artificial intelligence (AI), Bitcoin, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) and others.
Following a highly interactive and informative keynote presentation from Alicia Humphreys from EYx - EY’s Open Innovation Group – the session included a panel discussion from several professionals across different sectors of the industry who shared their views on how the industry may develop and how both they as professionals, and their own industries, are preparing for the changes that may be coming, considering the risks and opportunities that technology affords.
Time was given to answer questions from the audience at the end of both sessions.
