Keeping up with Security Trends from ISC West

When you return from business trips, do you reflect afterwards? Do you read through the notes you wrote down and take action on key points or follow up with colleagues to better build your business? If not, we recommend that you set aside time for this type of reflection. Your business will improve because of it.


Two weeks ago at ISC West, several members of our SIAC team joined and participated in committee meetings and connected with association and industry colleagues. Those connections served an important function to keep us in close touch with those we serve. At the same time, there was more gained from the event.

When you walk the floor at ISC West, regardless of how many years you’ve attended, you are struck by the awesome size of the convention and how many vendors attend. It never ceases to surprise us how many businesses there are in our industry. You can forget that. You can also forget the constantly changing face of technology. ISC West reminds you of that fact as well.


It’s when you return ISC West though and you reflect back on all that went on that you are struck by the opportunities for so many businesses to build successful models. Entrepreneurs, small-, mid- and large-sized businesses all flock to the event, and there are niche opportunities for all. We still see growth in the electronic security market. That stands out when you get back home – how many people still look at our industry and say, “There’s an opportunity here.”


We like that. SIAC believes that’s an important reminder for those of us who’ve been around the industry for awhile. What do you reflect on when you look back on ISC West? We hope you gained a new business insight, a market opportunity or even the nugget of an idea to influence your business model in a positive way. We did.
