Is Your Data Center Protected from Drones?

Are you using drones yourself to improve data center security?

Bet you didn’t think it needed to be. It hasn't occurred to me either, but Adam Ringle, who runs a security consulting company that bears his name, says not addressing the Unmanned Aerial Systems threat proactively can lead to serious consequences.

Ringle advocates for both taking steps to lower the risks from drones and also using them at the data center proactively to improve physical security. He is speaking on the subject at the Data Center World Global conference in Las Vegas this month.

He will be talking about relevant new policies, procedures, and legislation.

His company, Adam Ringle Consulting, guides companies on creating policies for dealing with things like drones and workplace shooters and provides emergency readiness training. It also offers expert medical, emergency services, and law enforcement witnesses to assist companies and government agencies in litigation.

ARC partners with StarRiver, which describes itself as a Drone, Unmanned Systems Technology Defense Research and Development Lab. The lab studies and develops drone detection and response systems.

Join Adam Ringle and 1,300 of your peers at Data Center World Global 2016, March 14-18, in Las Vegas, NV, for a real-world, “get it done” approach to converging efficiency, resiliency and agility for data center leadership in the digital enterprise. More details on the Data Center World website.
