Increasing Demand on Resources: Are New Technologies the Answer?

Industries across the United States are becoming the most highly regulated industries in the world with countless regulatory organizations changing policy and practice requirements on an annual basis. Security and Safety Professionals are bombarded with increasing expectations for compliance, risk management, fiscal performance, etc.  Sadly, very little is offered in terms of how to accomplish this with diminishing resources.

Emerging technologies are often touted as ultimate solutions but may offer as much confusion and disruption as they do opportunity.  This presentation will briefly review the attributes of emerging technologies and offer a guide towards evaluating and selecting productive, useful and valuable solutions.

The presentation will be both educational and interactive.  Participants will achieve the following:

  • Acquire a better understanding of
    • "Cloud Computing" or "Web-Based" solutions
    • Software as a Service (SaaS)
  • Understand how to recognize and evaluate technologies in terms of
    • Security
    • Redundancy
    • Access Control
    • Integration


As a retired U.S. Secret Service high-ranking official, Collett brings over 25 years of experience planning successful security for U.S. presidents, world leaders, and our nation's critical infrastructure and key assets.  As a former chief operating officer of an international security firm, Collett also brings experience in the development of new security programs, human resources and training, enterprise risk, regulatory compliance, and the expansion of business opportunities. He is responsible for cultivating new business for the NaviGate product in multiple verticals including healthcare, higher education, Government, sports, public venues, and manufacturing segments. Collett also directed the Service's financial, cyber and electronic crime investigations in Chicago, one of the agency's largest field districts. He is a member of ASIS International, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, and maintains a proactive and strategic alliance with several local, regional and national organizations dedicated to addressing homeland security, emergency management, business continuity and disaster recovery.
