Webinar: The State of Physical Access Control in 2022

Available on demand

What is the current state of physical access control in 2022? What are the challenges to upgrading and where do the future trends lie? We’ll discuss all this, and much more, with experts in physical access control during a one hour panel discussion. 

Based off the results of a global survey of over 1000 responses from security directors, managers, integrators and consultants, as well as facilities and IT professionals, we’ll explore topics covering digital credentials and mobile access control, how physical access control can influence cyber security and sustainability strategies, employee and visitor location monitoring, and other key trending topics.

We’ll also discuss the current state of credentials and technology in the market, what end-users are on the lookout for, and the potential challenges stifling upgrade decisions. And, with smart buildings noted as one of the major trends ahead, we explore the impact the development of more intelligent, digitised buildings is having on physical access control solutions.
