ISSA National Capital Chapter October meeting topic:

Understanding Basic Physical Access Control, (PACS)
by Bill Stover

We will speak briefly of the history of PACS, why it became a "Must Have" for most companies/Government Agencies. How it developed from Card centric and has morphed into Identity centric. Where it is going for Role Based Access Control, RBAC to the Back End Attributes, BAE access control. This one-hour presentation will go over the purpose of PACS and the different architectures that are available. We will discuss the PROS and CONS to Access Control. The information the PACS systems are gathering is placing the PACS into an integral part of the LACS system. As the PACS has developed through the years the physical equipment is no longer the key factor in a PACS, but the information and what can be done with that information that the PACS is gathering.
