Michael Jordan once said… “Some people want something to happen, others dream of it happening, but there are others who make it happen.” If there is a common denominator among all D-event participants, it is the willingness to tackle security challenges. And not only to tackle them but to do it effectively. It is key to know which technology can help achieve this goal.
This sums up our last event, where experts and security managers shared their experiences and challenges in perimeter protection. Did you miss it? Here’s a quick summary of what happened.
Panel discussions, inspirational talks, conferences, debates on technology… DAVANTIS set out to create a space to share, discover and reinvent security through technological innovation.
The valuable contributions of leading Spanish companies helped us to meet the objective of D-event. Cooperation, creativity and different viewpoints enabled us to create enriching spaces for debate thanks to our guests.
The lecture by Manuel Cebrian, a distinguished researcher and permanent chair of excellence at the Carlos III University of Madrid, presented the concept of “collective intelligence”. During his presentation, he stressed the importance of group interaction to make effective decisions and solve problems efficiently. His was an informative and entertaining lecture, focused on real examples of how to apply theoretical models to a range of everyday problems.
Victor Küppers captivated us with his motivating, positive ideas with a focus on personal development and positivity as essential aspects of success and satisfaction in life. Statements like “attitude is something small that makes a big difference” and “you are not what you achieve, you are what you overcome” still ring true. All attendees left the room wanting to conquer the world and make a difference.
How not to talk about artificial intelligence in security! The emergence of AI has generated a change in the technological paradigm with new perspectives and results.
That’s why D-event had a panel discussion with security experts. It was a space where we could discuss the advantages and challenges of artificial intelligence and how it helps us detect and prevent perimeter security breaches.
We also identified the potential risks of over-reliance on
AI and how to mitigate them.
We were fortunate to have experts like Angel Fresneda, head of Technical Security at the Sagrada Familia, who tackles the building’s everyday issues, its changing environment and its more than 15,000 daily visits.
Domingo Gomez, head of the Madrid Metro Security Area, also joined us. Domingo has been in the railway sector for more than 40 years and is more than familiar with threats and challenges, such as graffiti artists and trespassers trying to enter the tracks.
Jordi Bonete, Director of Physical Security at Agbar group, talked about the attacks and possible environmental risks they deal with to keep the facilities and the population protected.
Another participant in the panel discussion was Miguel Mari, Director of Corporate Security of Naturgy. His extensive international experience enabled him to explain the casuistry of the great challenges they face and how technology helps them mitigate risks.
We are deeply grateful to all the attendees who joined us for this opportunity to communicate based on cooperation and professionalism.
Thank you, thank you so much for being at the meeting and debate. See you at the next D-event!
