The one thing that is always constant in life is change. The climate of the physical security industry is no different. We asked our on-staff Security Consultant, Pierre Bourgeix, what he sees as “out” in 2018 and “in” in 2019 based on his conversations with clients and his close involvement in the industry.
In early January of 2018, the Security Industry Association (SIA) published, “Security Megatrends™: The 2018 Vision for the Security Industry.” This concise booklet summarized 10 megatrends, one of which was #4, “Evolution of Risk Management: Risk Management Transcends Department Titles”, which asserted the following:
Even though they’ve been around for decades, sales of security doors and turnstiles have increased markedly in the last several years. Some of the biggest companies on the planet are implementing them globally and tying them into their access control systems. Why now? What has changed?
Every organization faces a wide range of risks on a daily basis. Of all these various risks, there are five specific categories affected by access control, where the risks increase significantly when an unauthorized person has gained access into a controlled area. To manage any of these risks, you have a choice: you can choose to respond after the infiltration occurs or prevent infiltration from happening up front.
It is important to reflect on the past in order to have success in the future. What contributed to our successes? Where do we have room for improvement? Our Senior Vice President of Sales, Greg Schreiber, sat down to discuss the state of the physical security market in 2017, trends for the new year, and how to come out on top in 2018 and beyond.
We recently sat down with Boon Edam's Senior Vice President of Sales, Greg Schreiber. Greg has more than 30 years in the entrance market, and he spends many weeks during the year on the road, listening to customers and installers, and keeping up to date on trends and where the market is headed. Here are some hot topics we put to Greg for his thoughts.
With the increasing threat of terrorism, active shooters and workplace violence, the physical security market is expected to reach $11.09 billion by 2020, increasing 11.3% from 2014. We spoke to our Senior VP of Sales, Greg Schreiber, and asked him how this growth in the market has impacted Boon Edam’s operations, and how he expects the company to grow to keep up with demand.
