ASIS-ISAF research pinpoints move towards security convergence

There's long been talk about security convergence. As the physical security world became more digital, it made sense that the prototypical security director, a former cop with black shoes, white socks, and a crew cut, would have to cede his domain to his information security counterpart. This, of course, hasn't happened, and likely won't. While it takes IT guys to install and maintain access controls, surveillance cameras, sensors, etc., there's still the physical world of guards, fences, and walls. This survey only addresses access controls.
