ISC East, taking place 14 – 16 November in New York City, has announced that Greg Ehrie, Chief Security Officer for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, will kick off the Keynote Series on 15 November.
“With his expertise in implementing security strategies into transportation systems, we are excited to welcome Greg Ehrie as our first keynote speaker at ISC East this year,” said Mary Beth Shaughnessy, ISC Event Vice President.
“Through his insights, security novices and professionals alike will learn how an expansive and multifaceted organization like the Port Authority prioritizes security to protect all its stakeholders.
“The audience will walk away from his presentation with a better understanding of the local infrastructure they use every day and the steps taken to ensure their security at all levels.”
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey oversees regional transportation infrastructure across the two states.
Ehrie’s presentation will shed light on the evolving threat landscape and how the Port Authority implements a risk-based, multi-layer security approach to protect its employees, customers and critical transportation assets – including airports, bridges, tunnels, bus terminals, ports and the iconic 16-acre World Trade Center complex.
Ehrie’s presentation, “The Evolving Threat Landscape: Protecting New York and New Jersey’s Critical Transportation Assets,” is open to all badge holders.
ISC East will announce additional keynote speakers in the coming weeks.
