We exist in a world where terrorist activities, active shooter engagements, drone interventions and cyber intrusions are part of our national dialog. Security Managers and Leadership of critical infrastructure and high-profile facilities are looking for new ways to extend physical security capabilities, develop layered defenses, respond to multi-format threats and develop situational awareness more rapidly and accurately. Many answers can be found in “robots” or Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) as they are generally known, as well as autonomous system software, artificial intelligence capability and cyber-threat detection and mitigation.

Join us for a special presentation by Darin Andersen, the CEO & Founder of NXT Robotics, as he discusses how these new robotics capabilities for physical security are being further tasked with accounting for and safeguarding the privacy of individuals. Mr. Andersen is a distinguished serial Entrepreneur, Cybersecurity, Smart City, Internet of Things (IoT) and professional with over 20 years of experience in the industry. As part of this 40 minute presentation, Mr. Andersen will delve into the benefits and limitations of using "smart" guard robots in physical security; outline the latest innovations in AI and automation that hep create an “alert based” security space; discuss the legal considerations, training and costs related to incorporating this technology, and much more!



A little more on our speaker:

In 2013, Mr. Andersen founded CyberTECH (CyberHive and iHive Incubators), a global cybersecurity and IoT network ecosystem providing cybersecurity, IoT and Smart City resources, strategic programs and quality thought leader Forums across the nation. Before NXT Robotics, Darin was the CEO of CyberUnited a enterprise cybersecurity firm. Darin also served as President, North America for Norman Shark, a forensics malware analytics company, acquired by Symantec. Prior to Norman Shark, Darin was the Chief Operating Officer (COO) at ESET, an award winning and antivirus solutions company. While COO at ESET, Darin created the “Securing Our eCity” initiative. The initiative, now an independent Foundation, was recognized by The White House as the “Best Local/Community Plan” DHS National Cybersecurity Awareness Challenge.
