As more security solutions operate through internet connected systems, it is vital that physical and cybersecurity work together.

Hear Harvinder Singh Dhami, Senior Cybersecurity Advisor, City of Edmonton explore the challenges and ramifications of convergence of physical and cybersecurity.


As the Internet of Things grows and more security solutions operate through internet connected systems including, but not limited to HVAC system, video surveillance feeds, and access control systems all of which are network-enabled and network-accessible. It becomes very important that physical and cybersecurity work together. Otherwise a single vulnerability or misconfiguration of any system can compromise the entire physical infrastructure of a building (access control, security cameras, etc.). The result being possible damage to reputation, legal vulnerability, and/or financial loss for your organization. During this session, we take a look how can to converge physical security and cybersecurity.
