I had the opportunity to attend the NSI Impact on two separate occasions. If you have the opportunity to attend, please do so. The knowledge that is gained is unmatched! Each topic/speaker is chosen carefully to address those items that matter and are important to the security community (government/industry). It was a great experience to network, meet other security professionals and meet the numerous vendors who attend. The IMPACT committee does an awesome job with ensuring snacks, water, soda, lunch and other perks are provided throughout the event. Don’t miss it!

I have attended the IMPACT

I have attended the IMPACT event several times in the past years. It is a main event for me and my continuing education in keeping up with what’s new in security! The networking is amazing. The presenters are well-chosen members of their respective fields of business and are obviously experts in the area of their presentation. Learning what is new, what is on the horizon and getting the updated resources available to make me (and you!) a better security professional is crucial in this ever-changing business. Every time I attend, I am amazed at what I walk away with – what I learned that I didn’t know I didn’t know. It is crucial that security professionals remain abreast of what is happening in the security world and IMPACT is a great resource to do just that.

After 30+ years as a

After 30+ years as a security professional in both industry and government organizations, I attended my first IMPACT Conference in 2023. As with many conferences external to federal government entities, the subject matter presented was geared more towards industry and the dissimilar challenges shared by FSOs and ISSMs/ISSOs alike. As a former Corporate FSO, the material discussed was beneficial and the networking proved very valuable making the conference worthy of attendance. From the perspective of government security, the conference was still worth the time and money spent to attend. Many career professionals shared valuable security information beneficial to both industry and government based organizations. However, I would recommend making appropriate travel arraignments (i.e. rent a vehicle) provided future events are held at the Westfields Marriott. Not many eating establishments within suitable walking distance. Bottom Line: Everyone should go at least once and decide for themselves the level of benefit received from attendance.
