"Security convergence continues to occur, but ironically that same convergence is causing divergence in disparate systems, products, services and the experience, quality and competence of security professionals," says the CEO of Security Central Exchange, Mark Schober. Security convergence refers to the convergence of physical, technical, operational, managerial, administrative and other areas of security, including security products and services. For example, there are no longer clear lines between physical security and technical or network security. The boundaries have blurred. This convergence has been happening at an accelerated rate for approximately ten years. While overall progress is being made, this continued convergence presents many new problems, and ironically the threat environment continues to escalate. Businesses, consumers and the "average person" find themselves under assault from new threats. They must find ways to minimize their risk to avoid falling prey to an ever increasing number of hackers, cyber criminals, thieves, and just plain criminals. These threats include everything from physical security threats at home, at work, at school and in their neighborhoods to cyber security issues such as persistent cyber threats or cyber attacks, network attacks, theft of information and intellectual property, identity theft to cyber terrorism.
Security Central Exchange was launched to "bridge this gap," and bring individuals, security minded consumers, products, services and professionals together at one central location on the internet to increase security awareness, collaboration, and overall security. Consumers and professionals can exchange ideas, solve security related problems and collaborate with each other and security professionals. The Security Connection, is a new security forum where people can post ideas, problems and solutions, and also chat one-on-one with each other whether they be consumers or professionals. Security professionals may post their information and advertise free. Consumers can then "Find a Security Professional" in their local area, or worldwide for that matter. There is also a host of relevant security resources. In addition, there are great security related products and services from Home and Family security products, Business security solutions, GPS Tracking devices, Offender monitoring services, to law enforcement products and services.
