In our third episode, we zero in on new challenges facing modern security professionals, as Mike Gips, Principal at Global Insights in Professional Security and IFSEC Global influencer, expands on his predictions for the trends ahead in the physical security sector. 

We chat about how the pandemic has changed the face of the sector, and why it has helped professionals get a ‘seat at the C-suite table’, as organisations recognise the value security personnel and technology can bring. The second half of the episode explores the new challenges physical security professionals face from the growing divisive societal ‘factions’ that social media has helped to cement, to blockchain, to the development of the insider threat as a major disrupter and risk factor in businesses of all sizes. 

We finish on a fascinating story regarding an ex-US intelligence agent, so keep listening to find out more!
