SECON & eGISEC 2024: ‘A safer world with AI


Artificial intelligence (AI) is reshaping technology trends and challenges across all industries, including the IT industry, akin to a black hole. Worldwide, global IT companies are pushing the boundaries of AI technologies, including the evolution of generative AI. Effectively utilizing AI in business is becoming a prominent discussion among general companies, with a particular emphasis on the security industry. AI proves its effectiveness in various sectors such as crowd management, disaster prevention, marketing, and traffic and parking control, alongside crime prevention often associated with CCTV cameras. In the cyber security sector, security solutions combined with generative AI are achieving substantial performance improvements. Whereas, cybercriminals are also exploiting AI technology to identify attack penetration routes, such as vulnerabilities, and create attack tools with AI, intensifying AI security risks. Consequently, responding effectively to increasingly intelligent AI security risks while utilizing AI for security enhancement has become a universal challenge for all companies aiming to create a ‘Safer world with AI’.

Especially, in the domestic security market, the government has designated cyber security as one of the 12 national strategic technologies. Following the government’s establishment of a roadmap focusing on Data, AI security, Digital vulnerability analysis and response, Network, and cloud security, as well as Industrial and convergence security technologies, the physical security industry is expected to continue its high growth trends, exceeding 12.8% of an average annual growth rate over the past three years. With the prospect of effective integration of the security industry with AI technology, significant synergy effects are anticipated.

Remarkable integration of AI and Advanced Security Technology SECON & eGISEC 2024 provides a valuable moment to witness firsthand how AI, a megatrend across all industries, is seamlessly integrated and applied in advanced security technology within the security industry. The 23rd SECON & eGISEC 2024 stands as the world’s only integrated security exhibition encompassing both physical security and cyber security industry. Beyond showcasing physical security products like CCTV, access control, biometrics, and infrared sensors such as PIR and PID for social security, the exhibition will present a comprehensive array of security solutions for both online and offline applications. These encompass antiviruses tailored to confront diverse hacking and cybercrime scenarios such as ransomware attacks, as well as EDR, NDR, and XDR systems capable of addressing endpoint and network security threats in a unified manner. Additionally, cloud security and AI-powered security will be showcased, presenting a comprehensive full range of security solutions for both online and offline applications.

Furthermore, this year, the government has unveiled its commitment to fostering physical security, including intelligent CCTV, as one of the new growth engine industries, with cyber security. The government’s dedication to nurturing both the physical security and cyber security industry is robust, and this initiative is part of the government’s broader strategy to enhance global competitiveness in the local information security industry. Consequently, this exhibition is anticipated to serve as an optimal platform for the security industry to exhibit the world-class advanced security products and solutions developed by local companies to the global market.
