What is Megatrends all about?
WHEN THE SECURITY INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION (SIA) introduced the 2017 inaugural Security Megatrends™ as a compilation of forward-thinking insights chronicling the transformation of the physical security industry, the publication predicted a rapidly morphing landscape. Fast forward to this year’s Securing New Ground (SNG™) conference—and the developments have held true and escalated in quickstep fashion—perhaps faster than we envisioned.
