With FirstNet and NG911 on the horizon, the Public Safety industry is on the threshold of a major transformation. In the video below, NICE Systems’ General Manager for the Public Safety Global Business Unit John Rennie discusses how these trends are enabling a complete change in the way Public Safety operations work, and where NICE fits in.
Recently, representatives from Baylor University talked with Athletic Business Magazine about how real-time video surveillance has helped to ensure a great game-day experience for Big 12 football fans at Baylor’s all-new McLane Stadium. I invite you to read the full text of the resulting article below:

Recently, NICE’s Dr. Bob Banerjee was interviewed for an article on Big Data for the new ASSA ABLOY Future Lab website. I invite you to read the full text of the article, the first of two articles in Future Lab’s Big Data series, below:
Cities, ports, transit systems, airports, and other infrastructure have some of the most complex security challenges today. From maintaining critical commercial services for the private sector to the government requirements that shape their operations, these entities must carefully balance safety with efficiency.
Organizations of all kinds are applying analytics to a wide range of problems, and law enforcement is no exception. With the proliferation of video surveillance, video analytics has become more common. But the scope of analytics is now broadening, to include video, speech, and text.

I recently had an opportunity to pose these questions to three tenured veterans of the security industry who shared their insights on this very compelling topic at ISC East. Read below to see what they have to say about the future of the security industry.
