HUNTSVILLE, Ala., April 19, 2007 – Intergraph Corp. President and CEO R. Halsey Wise provided insights into applying geospatial and critical infrastructure protection technologies to today’s toughest security challenges at the Forbes Corporate Security Forum in Washington, D.C.
Under the theme “Dealing with Reality – The Risks and Challenges in Getting Security Right,” delegates from private and public sectors discussed current issues and requirements for security.
In the panel discussion “Will the New Class of Physical Security Technologies Merge with Information-Centric Systems?” moderated by Forbes Silicon Valley Bureau Chief Quentin Hardy, Wise joined General Motors Corp. Global Security Director Mike Bruggeman, Department of Homeland Security Under Secretary for Science & Technology Jay Cohen, and AirPatrol Director, President and CEO Nicholas Miller to explore if, and how, the vast intelligence from sensors, cameras, scanners, biometric devices, and other technologies can be effectively fused to provide security personnel with valuable, actionable intelligence.
“To mitigate the risks of ever-evolving security threats and successfully drive incident management, security personnel seek tools that provide interoperability, situational awareness, and the ability to execute highly synchronized mission operations,” Wise said.
