Access control in the connected workplace 2017

The benefits and barriers to enhancing convenience and compliance in connected buildings.

IFSEC Global has surveyed hundreds of security professionals, facility managers and building owners/managers across 54 countries to ascertain just how integrated with one another smart building technologies are in a range of building types, from offices to industrial premises.

The industry poll had a particular focus on access control, secure identities and credentials and how they consolidate across disparate systems for enhanced monitoring and user experience as people enter and move around buildings and gain access to different systems.

We also wanted to ascertain awareness levels regarding the benefits of integration, to what extent they incentivise system upgrades, whether integration is associated with a heightened cybersecurity risk and viewpoints on what the convergence of physical and IT systems means for training needs and the structure of IT, facilities and physical security teams.

The results of this survey are presented in a free-to-download trend report sponsored by HID Global, which powers the trusted identities of the world’s people, places and things.
