Title: Technology Disruption in Sports Venue Security


The sports industry is on the brink of a revolution as teams and venues adopt new technologies, including augmented reality, virtual reality, mobile ticketing, and ticketer tracking. The tsunami of data and information that will be shared with in-venue and at-home viewers creates lucrative opportunities for teams, players, and leagues. However, each of these technology systems and platforms are ripe for exploitation by competitors, thieves, activists, and even nation-state proxies. Share insights on the sports venues and entertainment districts of the future that will drive fan engagement and inclusion. Also explore the critical vulnerabilities that will require new security approaches to protect the people, assets, and information that come together to produce any sporting event.
