Security industry convergence – bridging the knowledge divide

Research output: Book/ReportReport


Convergence in the electronic security industry entails the meeting of two very different business cultures, which is currently manifesting itself in the form a knowledge gap. In view of this, the crucial strategic resources needed to succeed in the converged electronic security market of tomorrow will be a combination of competences, ca- pabilities and skills sets – or knowledge, in short – drawn from both the security and IT industries. This knowl- edge can be divided into three main categories: technological, business-related and cultural.
