Co-founders, Tim Wenzel
and Lee Oughton
One will read at on your site at, that, “The Kindness Games was started as a way to counter the disruption, hate, and discontent that has engulfed our world during the COVID-19 Pandemic and the ensuing spike of racial tensions and civil unrest. We aim to heal our relationships and communities through targeted #kindness.” Care to elaborate?

Tim Wenzel and Lee Oughton: In the fast-paced realm of security professionals, where the primary focus often centers around safeguarding assets and managing risks, a heartening movement has emerged - The Kindness Games (TKG). What started as a simple gesture among security professionals to acknowledge individuals who have positively impacted their careers swiftly evolved into a global phenomenon, transcending boundaries and spreading the message of kindness and unity.

The inception of The Kindness Games stemmed from a genuine desire to recognize the unsung heroes within the security industry, those individuals who selflessly extended a helping hand or offered invaluable guidance along the career paths of their peers. It began as a means to express gratitude and appreciation but soon blossomed into something much greater.

As the movement gained momentum, it caught the attention of individuals from diverse backgrounds and professions. The essence of TKG deeply resonated with people, sparking a collective desire to extend kindness beyond the boundaries of their immediate circles. It wasn't merely about acknowledging the contributions of others; it was about nurturing a culture of inclusivity, healing communities, and effecting positive change on a global scale.

Lisa Falzone, Co-founder, President, Exec Chair of the Board, Athena SecurityLisa Falzone

Co-founder, President, Exec Chair of the Board
Athena Security Thank you for joining us today, Lisa. Athena Security will soon be exhibiting some exciting cutting-edge tech at ISC West on April 9-12, in Las Vegas. But before getting into that, can you talk briefly about your background?

Lisa Falzone: I've always believed in the power of technology, and so I've built my career on leveraging technology to move industries forward. I actually started in commerce, not security. With Revel Systems, I built the first enterprise iPad cash register, and we scaled up to a 700-employee international company partnering with IBM and Apple. And a very successful one. You've been featured in Forbes Magazine 30 under 30, Fortune Magazine 40 under 40, Tech Crunch, Business Insider... So why the shift to security?

Lisa Falzone: The short answer is, I became a mom. Like most parents, I was dismayed by the growing problem of school shootings. I wanted to give my daughter and son a safer world, and I felt like I had the ability to do something about it. So I founded Athena Security as a way to address the issue, and use my passion for technology to address the growing need for more advanced security measures. We're creating innovative solutions like the A.I. Athena Weapons Detection Solution that I really think can make a difference and save lives. Athena Security has recently announced the addition of an "Evasion Detection" feature, using AI to identify visitors who attempt to bypass the screening process. Care to elaborate?

Lisa Falzone: Sure. In crowded entryways, visitors sometimes try to skip the screening process for various reasons. Identifying these evasions is essential for effective security because the world's most advanced weapon detection system still doesn't work if people can just bypass it. Our latest update includes an Evasion Detection AI which automatically locates anyone attempting to get around the weapons detection portal, and notifies the guard on duty or can escalate the alert to anyone else who needs to be aware of the evasion.

’We are honored to have been accepted by the Institute for Homeland Security and Sam Houston State University for their 2024 Spring Research. We will be studying the impact that a Standardized Workplace Violence Training for Healthcare Workers and Healthcare Security would have on critical infrastructure support for healthcare. Early adopters will be considered for future grants and research opportunities as they become available. This will allow smaller, lesser funded organizations to access the training and support they really need. To get more information on this incredible opportunity please visit our website. I have talked to some nurses doing research at Yale and Mass Gen on violence projects and I am excited about offering our support there. People are really excited about our potential to use Training and research in schools. We even had a local business offer to donate a building for 6 months free lease to house our Veterans Vocational Training Center and Technology Innovation Gallery.

Jody Ross
Vice President of Sales, AMAG TechnologyJody Ross

Vice President of Sales
AMAG Technology Congratulations, Jody, on nearly two decades with AMAG! Thank you for joining us again today. So much has changed since we first featured you “In The Boardroom” several years ago. Before we discuss today’s main topic in greater detail, the AMAG solution for organizations who are faced with the challenge of finding a replacement for their “sunsetted’ Casi Rusco access control systems, please share with our readers your current role with this project.

Jody Ross: In my nearly two decades with AMAG as a sales leader, I’ve spearheaded several sales initiatives including our first Symmetry SR initiative about 10 years ago. Currently, among many responsibilities, I manage and support several large customers who have made the migration to Symmetry SR. The video here describes the situation very well. We understand that AMAG is stepping up once again, as you did several years ago, to provide a simple, cost-effective migration solution. Please recap for us here the Casi Rusco situation.

Jody Ross: We’ve always been here supporting… As you may recall, in 2011 the manufacturer of the Casi Rusco - Picture Perfect system announced the end of support for the solution. This left many customers who had invested in that platform in a predicament. This year, another well-known manufacturer of Casi Rusco replacement boards announced the end of life for their panels, which, once again, has left customers in a bind. We are proud to say that AMAG still offers our replacement solution, Symmetry SR and will continue to do so in the future. Our customers can count on us to support them now and into the future.

Data Centers are a new and critical vertical for us as we have several large customers in this market. We are seeing US/European companies investing in either buying existing data centers or building new ones, and that has expanded into the LatAm region. AMAG’s Symmetry Security Management System offers a single point of entry to all the security software and hardware in each facility, which can be controlled either locally or from a central control center. The objective is to have one screen where you can see all the Cameras, Access Control, Audio, Radars, Visitors and so on, independently of the hardware brands. Our Symmetry system also helps manage compliance requirements, which are different for each country.

AMAG’s Symmetry solutions can operate in nearly all vertical markets. We can help our customers with their security challenges by providing an integrated security solution. We have integrations with over 100 technology partners and are able to provide many options for our customers. We specialize in Finance, Food Plants, Restaurants, Oil & Gas, Healthcare, and Data Centers, but also work in Education, Transportation, commercial/Real Estate, Ports, plus many others.

At this moment we are implementing our Symmetry Security Management platform in one of the top LatAm companies in more than five countries where from a single control center they will manage +150 restaurants, food plants, malls, buildings and other facilities, not only from an access control point of view, but their system will also include audio, video, visitor management along with several technology partner integrations to provide a complete system. Again, our main goal is to be the trusted advisor for our clients who are looking for an open and integrated solution.

Vice President - Technical Services
AMAG Technology We had the pleasure of speaking recently with AMAG's new President, David Sullivan and also with Paul Edwards, AMAG's Executive Vice President of Business Technology. In both discussions, AMAG’s customer-first culture was stressed as a top priority. David Sullivan recently said, “Instilling a customer-first culture is at the forefront of my mission as president, and our entire organization continues to work hard to support all of our channel partners to the greatest extent possible." Please share with us, Ryan, how this guiding philosophy of “customer-first” ties into your current role, and the goals for your team, such as lower call-hold times.

Ryan Howarth: For Technical Services, this means examining our internal processes and using metrics to measure several KPIs to see where we need to improve or change. We are also looking at what we can do to add further value to our services with the goal of continuously improving how we support our customers. One such improvement was utilizing technology to bring the team together, allowing us to increase the hours of service that we provide and improving our average call hold times, which today are 1m15s for the year.

Surveillance is our primary service offering especially in workers’ compensation and personal injury cases. We also provide skip tracing services of claimants who have committed insurance fraud and once found we conduct comprehensive background investigations inclusive of in-depth social media Research. Often times with social media we can prove that the claimants we are investigating are exceeding their physical capabilities when they are supposedly injured or unable to have physical competency. We also may research during the discovery process documentation showing that the claimant has prior fraud cases associated with him/her. The attorneys and insurance carriers who retain our services may request that we interview neighbors, colleagues, associates and other employees known to the claimant that can give testimony relative to fraud being committed by the claimant.

Previously, security solutions were on isolated networks, but with the convergence of technologies and the cyber threat, IT is now a key stakeholder in all decisions and the ongoing management of a solution. It is important that the security industry is staying as up-to-date as possible (which can be a challenge) with the latest threats. The homograph attack is an example of how vigilant people need to be, as by using the Latin character "a" is replaced with the Cyrillic character "a" but are actually different, so a user could receive an email or click a link that looks valid, but in fact is a completely different site hosted by the threat actor. We are rolling out a new program internally this year to ensure we provide our staff with meaningful, digestible information on a regular basis which will help protect not only AMAG staff at work but our staff in their personal lives as well. Through this knowledge, our staff will be able to discuss cybersecurity with our partners and customers in a relatable manner and bring in internal subject matter experts as required into conversations.

We are excited to be moving forward under the MetAlert brand. GTX no longer represented everything that we do and our vision of the future. In the beginning our focus was primarily on tracking and Global Trek Exploration, abbreviated as GTX made sense. In recent years, our Company has been focusing on solutions that transform people’s lives, with this transformation we felt the need for a change. Our vision is that in the near future, the people that use our products and services will live longer, healthier, and higher quality lives. This will happen because our products will collect vital information in real time, send it to the cloud, where that data can be analyzed and through our backend A.I. and notification platform, that data will be sent to doctors, first responders, caregivers, or family members. Imagine a 65-year-old man, that has a mild heart attack, doesn’t really think much of it and the next day goes out and plays tennis or golf and has another heart attack. Our products would be able to detect that, send the information to a first responder including the address of where that person is. This scenario is a life saver for that individual and we believe MetAlert speaks to that vision.

Access control systems have always been great repositories of big data…every time you swipe your card or present your phone at a door, you are creating data. But very little has ever been done to analyze that data…until now. AMAG has developed a machine learning algorithm that learns what normal behavior is for an access control system… it learns when you usually arrive at the office, which door you enter the facility via and where you go next. So if you suddenly start arriving earlier and going to different locations, which you may still be allowed access to, the system will recognize that as “abnormal behavior.” There may be perfectly genuine reasons for the observed behavior, but the AMAG solution provides you with that insight… it gives you an early warning of potentially nefarious activity so you can make a better, more informed decision.

Organizations are in various states of assessing their workforce needs as they start to bring employees back to the office. Every company is looking at the situation through a prism of their own needs. From a security perspective, I tell our clients that they need to have a heightened awareness of the mental state of their staff.  The pandemic has increased tensions and stress levels. For example, some employees are stressed about rules around vaccinations and mask-wearing in the office.

If you are in charge of security, it’s now more important than ever that you carefully evaluate your people, process, and technology in this new normal and be prepared for potential disruptions. Some of these situations could escalate into violence. Secondly, we have to consider the security of remote workers.  What security risks are in their home?  Is there the possibility that your workers are leaving sensitive documents in the open? Are they locking their home office? Do they have a shredder? Are they following good cybersecurity hygiene? Or are they creating a massive vulnerability for someone to access sensitive corporate information?

AMAG’s unique value proposition is one of the main reasons I joined the company. There are many companies that offer access control, video or identity management solutions. What makes AMAG unique is that we offer a total solution that is developed in-house. We manufacture our own access control software and hardware, visitor management and identity management systems. Manufacturing our own hardware and software allows us full control over feature enhancing upgrades, ensuring continuity of supply for the long term. Our system is completely scalable, meaning a Symmetry Security Management System can operate in a small business or secure a large company, even with locations around the world.

Another key differentiator is AMAG incorporates an open architecture into its Symmetry solution. Symmetry integrates with ANY technology on the market, including other access control systems. Integrating with other access control systems is important for large enterprise customers who acquire companies and take on the responsibility of managing the new company’s existing access control systems. Integrating with those new systems simplifies the overall security management and lets the company issue one card for all systems. In addition, our support team provides complete support for all third-party products integrated with Symmetry. This is a huge relief for our customers who don’t want to jump around to different manufacturers when they have issues.

My business development team at AMAG Technology is 100% dedicated to the security consultant community and architects and engineers. This community is the backbone of the security industry. They have power, much more than meets the eye, to drive some of the most meaningful work in the security space. The industry works collectively as a wheel that keeps churning with the ultimate goals of saving lives and protecting properties and assets. We have security end users that have a business to run and security plans to operate and execute on. We have technology developers, such as ourselves at AMAG, that provide innovative solutions the end user can rely on to optimize their security programs. And we have the systems integrators who bring the systems to life and maintain their health and long-term functionality. But what sets the wheels in motion is the physical security consultant.

The traditional alarm monitoring market operates under a business model where high margin recurring monthly revenue is used to subsidize initial costs (primarily hardware and installation costs). The traditional model has been very successful in landing (typically for no upfront fee or a small fee up-front fee) and keeping long-term customers for years that pay monthly recurring fees. In the last several years, we have seen a surge in the IoT and Home Automation markets. The problem with IoT and Home Automation, while growing rapidly, is that they have lacked an integrated offering with a compelling service model thus, there has been limited recurring revenue.

We believe IoT and Home Automation providers are beginning to move to an Alarm Monitoring business model (with limited upfront fees but with the customers signing long-term contracts). This shift can be observed with recent companies like Latch Inc (LTCH – Not Rated) and Smart Rent (Not Rated) both offering services to multifamily facilities with high recurring fees (we will discuss Latch in further detail later in this report). We are also observing traditional alarm companies moving further into IoT and Home automation like ADT and Monitronics/Brinks Home Security experiencing solid growth and higher retention through a broader offering to its end user. Finally, we see multinational security companies like Prosegur expanding its offerings from guard/alarms/cash management to video monitoring and home automation to increase RMR or recurring monthly revenues.

A Covid credential presentation would be an excellent use case for what we are doing, whether it is a Covid test result or a Covid vaccination proof. A Service Provider like an airline before boarding, a rental car agency before renting a car, or a hotel before checking in, should be able to check the validity of the presented credential, that it belongs to the person who is showing it, that it is the latest data, that it comes from the actual source, and that the source can actually be trusted -- that it is a genuine facility, and not a fake credential provider. Digital Trust Network’s Digital Identity Interchange is a perfect vehicle to achieve this. Further, the issuing sources will be part of the value chain when the credential is verified. This system protects user privacy, invalidates fraudulent certificates and credentials, and provides the latest information.

Digital transformation - the movement of critical computing from the data-center to the cloud -  is driving rapid changes in business models and network architectures. It also drives changes in how cybercriminals operate, making it easier for them to harvest data and launch automated attacks at scale. The mismatch between changes in cybercrime sophistication and the relative stagnation in cybersecurity approaches is apparent as organizations continue to suffer data breaches. According to a survey presented in AT&T Cybersecurity Insights, 88% of respondents had reported at least one type of security incident or breach in the last year.

The root cause? Dispersed networks, an explosion of data, disparate technologies, complex security operations present cybercriminals with gaps or “seams” in organizations’ security postures. Fighting cybercrime requires a coordinated and collaborative approach orchestrating best-of-breed people, process and technology.

Experience continually reinforces the reality that the human element is the weakest link in cybersecurity. This means the most important proactive strategy of all is to train everybody in a corporation - and I mean everybody - in good cybersecurity practices, along with their contractors and vendors. All employees should not only understand what is expected of them regarding company security policy and good online behavior, but also be trained to spot nefarious or suspicious activity and to conduct periodic tests to ensure best practices are followed.

One should think about security under the following framework:

Continuous authentication: 100% of fraud occurs inside authenticated sessions. This means that the login function is not really relevant anymore because fraudsters have found ways to bypass it, whether it is password, token or even a physical biometrics.

- Dynamic authentication: Most methods of authentication are static. Behavior by definition changes over time so one needs to deploy techniques that cannot be copied, stolen or otherwise used in a replay attack.

- Go beyond the endpoint. Applications and active sessions are incredibly vulnerable as fraudsters use social engineering scams and even phishing scams (where the legitimate person defrauds themselves under the influence of a fraudster).

- Recognize that humans are the weakest link and design systems accordingly. Thirty percent of participants will still open malicious emails within 30 minutes of phishing training. It only takes one person (the weakest link) to bring down an entire enterprise.

There are three key challenges our clients face today. First, cyber threats are ever-changing and becoming more sophisticated by the day. Cyber terrorism and targeted cybercriminal activities are directly impacting both the public and private sectors. They are persistent and yet, based on our research into exploit trends in 2014, attackers continue to leverage well known techniques to compromise systems and networks. Many vulnerabilities exploited in 2014 took advantage of code written many years ago and adversaries continue to leverage classic avenues for attack against client-side and server-side applications. Anti-virus signatures only catch approximately 45 percent of cyber attacks—a truly abysmal rate.

In our review of the 2014 threat landscape, we find that enterprises most successful in securing their environment employ complementary protection technologies. These technologies work best when paired with a mindset that assumes a breach will occur instead of only working to prevent intrusions and compromise from the perimeter. So our clients’ security posture must be agile and responsive to better defend against threats —internal and external—in addition to vulnerabilities, in order to mitigate their risk...

Existing cybersecurity architectures are failing due to two macro trend cloud computing and mobility. The endpoint is inadequately secured and the adversary often has a footprint within one’s perimeter defenses. We must pursue a strategy of intrusion suppression wherein we can decrease dwell time and this detect, deceive, divert and hunt and adversary unbeknownst to the adversary. To achieve this an organization must: employ application whitelisting, employ an endpoint protection platform, establish a Hunt Team and roll out deception grids. Employ Deceptiongrids.
