Meet the newest security products and solutions in one place and see the latest integrated security trends
The need for integrated security has become more critical as smart cities, smart factories, smart devices, and smart shop are becoming more realistic in the recent trend of making intelligent, convergence, and smart in all industries. Manufacturing, IT, infrastructure, and service industries in Japan, China, and ASEAN are already undergoing digital transformation, and in particular, Korea is accelerating the construction of 'smart cities' and 'e-government' centred on central government departments and local governments. This is due to social changes such as easy paperwork, easy payment, and authentication, various O2O service platforms, cyber security threats, cloud service growth, population reduction, and intelligent transportation. In addition, the fact that the cost of production using machines has become much lower than the cost of production using human labour is also encouraging the acceleration of "smart factories." And due to the long-standing impact of COVID-19, the market for non-face-to-face medical care, video conferencing, and kiosks is also growing.
SECON 2023 is a trend-leading exhibition at the heart of this digital transformation, allowing you to experience the latest products and solution services, while reading the latest security trends in advance to help you anticipate changes in near future.
