Editor Introduction

We are several weeks into 2021, and it is already shaping up to be an eventful year. The happenings and trends from 2020 will likely carry over into the new year, but in a fast-moving industry such as ours, there will also be additional trends to watch. Looking toward the year ahead, we asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What will be the biggest security trends in 2021?

Coming off a year like 2020 has definitely shaped the most significant security trends as we enter into 2021. Post-pandemic, new demands or requirements for access control will require a greater review of reporting and data analytics on physical resource utilization and data analytics for compliance. Additionally, touchless and mobile access will continue to grow as we see more and more mobile access points at the door, elevators, and turnstiles with the goal to touch fewer things. And finally, with the downsizing of large physical properties over the next three years and people continuing to work remotely while utilizing satellite offices, being able to federate identity and access across supplier’s systems will be important.
