The latest integrated security trends
The need for integrated security is becoming increasingly important as smart cities, smart factories, smart devices and smart shopping become more evident.
Manufacturing, IT, infrastructure and service industries in Japan, China and ASEAN are already undergoing digital transformation, and Korea in particular is accelerating the construction of “smart cities” and “e-government” centered on central government departments and local governments. This is due to social changes such as easy paperwork, easy payment and authentication, various O2O service platforms, cybersecurity threats, growth of cloud services, population reduction and intelligent transportation.
In addition, production costs with machines have become much lower than production costs with human labor, which promotes the acceleration of “smart factories”. And due to the long-standing impact of COVID-19, the market for in-person medical supplies, video conferencing, and kiosks continues to grow.
SECON 2023 is a trend-leading exhibition at the heart of this digital transformation, where you can experience the latest products and solution services and get advance information on the latest security trends to anticipate changes in the near future. Soyoung Choi, CEO of Informa Markets BN Co Ltd, an organizer of SECON, said, “SECON 2023 is the best trading advice platform in the security industry, and buyers have a good opportunity to experience the latest security technologies in Korea and Asia in one place .”
