In Episode 4, James Willison & Sarb Sembhi discuss the concept of converged security and why uniting physical and cyber operations is more important than ever. Both are consultants to the IFSEC International Converged Security Centre, and the discussion touches upon a clarification of what we mean by 'converged security', how an operation works in practice, and the benefits of a more collaborative approach.

We also explore the duo's involvement in the IoT Security Foundation. CCTV, access control and alarm devices are increasingly connected to the internet and third party applications and software, so Sarb and James explain where physical security professionals can start understanding IoT risks and how to mitigate them.
