Whitepaper: Multi-residential access management – The move to digital


Axis OPEN London ready for kick off at the ‘Home of Football’

Axis has released further details for its OPEN event, taking place at Wembley Stadium in London on 31 October, designed to facilitate education, collaboration and networking for attendees.

The full event agenda, speaker line up and programme sponsors have now been confirmed.

Axis-Open-Events-23Axis says its OPEN events will open new opportunities for visitors, facilitate connection with wider industry leaders in networking events and enable discovery of the challenges and opportunities arising from the key trends in the security industry.

Event Agenda – OPEN London

OPEN London, in partnership with Genetec and Milestone, will be structured around three working areas:

  • OPEN Mind for inspiring plenary sessions, panel debates and breakout workshops;
  • OPEN Learn, a tech bar to start conversations and answer questions in an intimate and friendly space
  • OPEN Zone to enable the easy delivery of presentations and product demos within partner pods.

Axis is encouraging the full security supply chain to attend, where systems integrators, distributors, and consultants, as well as end-customers, will hear more about the key issues impacting the security industry. Key topics will cover:

  • Trust and resilience in the supply chain: Amidst recent challenges that have shaken the global business landscape, the resilience of supply chains has been put to the test. Fostering economic growth means building supply chain resilience for a better future.
  • Ethics and sustainability: Advances in technological capabilities, environmental concerns and increasing customer expectations mean organisations must commit to high standards of ethical behaviour. Security technology must meet legal compliance on hazardous substances, such as REACH and RoHS.
  • Cyber security and device interoperability: There are inherent risks when improperly secured IoT devices are installed on an IT network. A security system is only as strong as its weakest link and network surveillance cameras which are not cyber secure can be used as a backdoor to gain access to the network.
  • Compliance and data regulation: With increased digitisation and an evolving cyber security threat landscape, it is critical to continually improve cybersecurity risk management. Dedicated tools, documentation and training will help mitigate risks and keep products and services protected.
  • Digital transformation: Due to the vast potential of a network camera, acting as a sensor and a business intelligence tool, they are now being incorporated into tailor-made smart applications that are designed to solve specific industry problems with no related security factor.
  • Total Cost of Ownership (TCO): Without full transparency, it is very difficult to evidence the complete cost and subsequent end-to-end value of a security solution across its entire lifespan. Businesses need to be sure of the integrity of the systems deployed and the pedigree of the vendors behind them.
