Course approved for AIA, BOC and BOMI ceu credits.

A new study of security directors, managers, and consultants finds access control infrastructure is deteriorating, as is the confidence that the access control systems in place are up for the job. These findings come from a survey of ASIS International members and customers on access control technology and its use. The study underscores the complexities of managing physical security at a time when the technological sophistication of bad actors and the potential costs of security vulnerabilities are rapidly increasing. 

How is the industry changing and adapting to this landscape?
