The reality is that consumer and commercial level technological developments are converging, opening up new possibilities for all technical security professionals who maintain strong technical and administrative skill sets across a wide knowledge base.

At the same time, a wide variety of new technological threats are emerging, and these threats could compromise technical security and place tremendous demands on, and pose significant challenges to technical security programs, physical infrastructure and the information technology architecture.

Technical security professionals, at all operational threat levels, from private individuals, small businesses, corporate security directors, governments, and military operators will need to be informed and prepared, not only here in Canada, but around the globe as business interests continue to become globally mobile.
