    If your principal’s main residence alarm system is going off at 2 in the morning, can you turn it off? Technology awareness goes a lot further than ‘becoming a hacker’ or learning to code. Today we are delighted to speak with Paul Nieto III a Physical Security Technology Manager about how the EP profession is modernizing but in a much more accessible way than many might fear. Join us as we ask:

    • Where should the executive protection professional go to augment their technology skills?
    • Are CTF (capture the flag) exercises and games really just as complicated as a crossword or a sudoku and can anyone try them?
    • How does technology awareness compliment career development to become a ‘trusted security advisor’?
    • How can physical security professionals embark on becoming a security technology manager?
    • Are some EP professionals still reluctant to familiarize themselves with technology?
