    Incorporating quality assurance into one's security strategy can often be the missing piece in terms of measuring security performance and success. You could argue that testing and measuring the strength and overall effectiveness of a security operation and its systems within is what allows us to determine and confidently demonstrate the quality of our security and how it is making a positive impact. Incorporating this fundamental approach will also uncover gaps and weaknesses in a controlled manner to ultimately strengthen one’s overall security posture, overtime. However, this type of quality-assured approach often gets neglected. Here James talks about why that is, why it's a problem, and how we can strategically drive quality assurance to better educate business leaders on the ongoing development and impact of security.

    In light of the terrorist attacks, homeland security emerged as a rising subject matter in the academic realm, reflecting positively on national security globally. However, industrial security is an area that has not been emphasized in academia unlike homeland security, criminology, cybersecurity and management. Therefore, university graduates entering the industrial security field lack a holistic understanding of industrial security, as they come from only slightly related academic majors. This session will showcase this gap in the real-world, and delve into the critical integration of industrial security as a university major, addressing the escalating demand for skilled professionals who are well-prepared for this field.

Since their deployment, coverage area has expanded, search and rescue missions practicality improved, and covert surveillance enhanced. Additionally, patrol officers now benefit from the uplifted time-efficiency and reduced safety risks this technology brings. The Falcon Eye remarkably minimized the need for physical patrolling by tenfold, while simultaneously increasing vigilance to capture security observations by nearly 40%. The application of this transformative technology optimized resources allocation, thus serving as a stepping stone for future advancements in security operations.

    - Sustainable security is based on the principle that we cannot fully control all the outcomes of insecurity, and it is important to address the underlying causes of the issue.
    - Sustainable security is a part of the broader ESG standards that evaluate a company's impact on society, the environment, and its transparency and accountability.
    - In today's highly interconnected world, it is crucial to safeguard and deliver value to businesses, organizations, their outputs, and customers.
    - Sustainable security aims to cooperatively resolve the root causes of threats using the most effective means available, and it is inherently preventative, tackling the likely causes of conflict and instability before the effects are felt.
    - While prevention is better than cure, it is essential to keep an eye on the cost versus the benefits gained to ensure value delivery.
