Framingham, MA & Bethesda, MD – March 14, 2023 – FindBiometrics & Mobile ID World (FB & MIDW), the leading media platforms and trusted sources for global identity & biometrics technology news, is proud to announce its partnership with the Access Control Executive Brief, the global independent go-to voice for the access control and smart lock industry.
The partnership will allow for greater collaboration and further in-depth discussion on the ever-evolving digital transformation and convergence of physical and logical access control and do it from the physical access control industry perspective.
Lee Odess, CEO of the Access Control Executive Brief, is leading the physical access control market digital & IoT era conversation.
“With the mainstream adoption of cloud, mobile computing, and expectations that we, as an industry, function more like enterprise software, our industry’s value proposition is no longer only about keeping bad people out,” says “Odess. “We must also focus on letting the right people in. We must go beyond the traditional locking and unlocking $10B cottage industry to reach the larger $70B mainstream market opportunity. It is time we embrace this digital transformation and focus on the needs of not only today and yesterday but tomorrow.”
Odess’ Access Control Executive Brief is a global inclusive physical access control industry community and information source. The Access Control Executive Brief provides monthly low-downs on smart locks, physical security, and access via an online community, written Briefs, and in-person events. Informed by his and the community’s deep sector knowledge, these Briefs are for those looking to spark their curiosity, advising them on improving efficiency and revenue as the industry evolves and goes beyond its original value proposition and expectations.
“We are excited to collaborate with Lee. From a physical security market perspective, he is the ‘eyes & ears’ for FB & MIDW in the access control industry,” says said Doug OGorden FB & MIDW Director of Digital Media & Events. “His background, knowledge, and understanding of the complex history of Physical Access Control Systems (PACs) and smart locks are a great gauge for where identity & biometrics will fit into the need for more mobile, touchless, frictionless physical security solutions.”
Odess added, “Partnering with FB & MIDW to better understand where identity & biometrics will go is an honor. Both technology and product offerings have been around for a while, and they are beginning to fit into a more secure physical & digital access control world.”
