I have had the good fortune to be blessed with industry gurus and men- tors who have helped me learn and appreciate the dynamics of security and risk and how each relates to organizational survival and stability. As we publish our first magazine of 2018 I want- ed to introduce our new Editorial Advisory Board. The seven new members join our foundation advi- sors and regular contributors Ray Bernard and Ray Coulombe. This new Board will help set the course of what you see in the magazine this year through 2019. The security industry is evolving not only from a technology perspective but through compliance and regulatory restriction as well.
