Securitas Technology Turkey announced the 2023 most important technology trends that will dominate the security scene in 6. In the last few years, security has become a strategic asset that goes beyond mitigating risk but also serves efficiency. Security now plays a much more important role in the digital transformation of organizations. Today, as cyber security concerns increase, the budgets that customers allocate for physical and electronic security are also increasing.
Pelin Yelkencioğlu, Securitas Technology Turkey Marketing Director, said, “Today, many organizations are focusing on optimizing their security investments. At this point, we expect hybrid and cloud-based solutions to increase their weight. “Because a hybrid approach enables organizations to save costs and operate with higher performance in-house investments to improve safety and efficiency.”
Stating that the need for security will continue to be the top priority of both institutions and individuals, Yelkencioğlu shared the most important technology trends that will shape the security sector in 2023.
“The use of artificial intelligence will become widespread”
Artificial intelligence has been used quietly for some time to automate certain security and business processes. But use will become more widespread and we will see new and exciting uses emerge in the years to come. Pelin Yelkencioğlu said, “We believe that the combination of artificial intelligence and IoT (AIoT) will continue to be an important trend for 2023 by reshaping the scope of the security industry by taking artificial intelligence further. It will not only provide intelligent protection, but will also help increase the efficiency of operations in many industries and organizations,” he said, adding that Securitas Technology will also focus on developing technologies that will create added value in this area.
“The importance of video analytics will increase”
Today, video analysis can be used as a highly effective detection system with a properly designed camera system that is suitable for its purpose. Artificial intelligence-supported, intelligent, analytical cameras can be integrated with different security systems and offer different benefits in order to improve security or operations. For example; Thanks to camera solutions with analytics, it becomes much easier to notice and follow up a potential event through previously created scenarios.
“More biometric security systems”
Biometric technologies will grow much faster in the next 3-4 years. These state-of-the-art solutions such as face, fingerprint recognition and voice biometrics protect facilities with superior precision. Therefore, businesses will increasingly turn to biometric security systems because of the superior security they offer.
“The future of security is in the cloud”
In security, the move to the cloud is slower than expected compared to the larger tech industry. The perception of the cloud as a cybersecurity risk is seen as the biggest obstacle to its further adoption for security solutions. But the move to the cloud will continue to accelerate as organizations realize the importance of implementing or updating their security services.
“Cybersecurity is the most serious risk”
Cyber security will also be one of the important topics this year. A report by Cybersecurity Ventures estimates that global crime costs will reach US$2025 trillion by 10,5. As more devices continue to come online and data processing becomes the center of operations, it is more important for businesses to remain agile and responsive to the evolving threat landscape. Businesses also need to offer greater transparency to meet their customers' expectations of keeping their data private and secure. All of this will launch a new cybersecurity model that relies on constant verification rather than just strengthening networks and systems. Decision makers will seek to implement more aggressive cybersecurity strategies and select partners that offer higher levels of automation to tackle potential threats.
“IT's role in security is changing”
For many organizations, the restrictions stemming from the pandemic have been a trigger to combine physical security with video surveillance and access control systems, according to the report by Genetec, based on the views of more than 3.700 security leaders worldwide. Because some end-users had to take this step to effectively manage the safe movement of workers on their premises. Most respondents (64%) reported running both video surveillance and access control to support physical security.
Ten years ago, most physical security systems in large organizations were managed by personnel in security departments. Today, the Information Technology (IT) department has begun to play a larger role in physical security. Today, IT is taking more responsibility for managing physical security systems. Participants of the research, 2023 security technologies they plan to invest in 10; access control, video surveillance, cyber security related tools, video analysis, intrusion detection, face recognition, security and operations analytics, perimeter protection, license plate recognition and event management technologies.
