Day 1 Keynote: Friend or Foe? Technology Disruption and the Physical Security Industry
November 14, 2018 | 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Room 1A30

Technology has already changed how we work and live, and now it’s clearly poised to disrupt the physical security industry. Robots, drones, automation and artificial intelligence will all transform the landscape of how we deal with threats and challenges; how we manage access, information and identity. As makers and users push the limits of these new technologies and define their expectations, the results could spell trouble for organizations and people that cannot evolve or transform quickly enough.

Join us for this ISC East keynote featuring the security chief for Brown Brothers Harriman — one of the country’s oldest and largest privately held financial firms and hear how a top security executive deals with the demands on security and people management while riding the wave of technology disruption.


Philip Halpin, Senior Vice President & Head of Global Security, Brown Brothers Harriman & Co.

Phil Halpin is a Senior Vice President and the Head of Global Security for Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH). Since joining the firm in 2014, Halpin has transformed the global security program from a reactive model to one that demonstrates a quantifiable value to the organization by mitigating risk through proactive and intelligence-driven services and providing strategic business support. Most recently, Phil has taken responsibility for information security and will execute on a vision to digitally transform the way BBH manages identity and access which includes an appropriate convergence of physical and logical security. Halpin brings a blended background including experience in the public sector – where he served in the U.S. Marines and local law enforcement – and from the private sector, where he held corporate security risk management roles in several different organizations. Phil feels this blended experience has helped to provide him with some of the perspective and adaptability needed to succeed in today’s ever-changing business environment – where it’s not only about mitigating security risk, but also crucial to align with your organization, innovate and provide leadership.

Day 2 Keynote: How Law Enforcement and the Security Industry are Confronting Emerging Threats
November 15, 2018 | 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Room 1A30

Presented by James A. Gagliano, retired FBI professional with a quarter-century experience in mitigating criminal and terrorist threats, this Keynote session will highlight necessary 21st century changes in law enforcement and security postures. Gagliano has vast experience in the crisis resolution arena which he now shares as a homeland security professor, television law enforcement analyst, and industry speaker. He will address recent responses to contemporary challenges such as active shooters, bombings, VIP protection, and drone applications by identifying and breaking down an ever-evolving threat matrix.


James A. Gagliano, Retired FBI Supervisory Special Agent, CNN Law Enforcement Analyst, Adjunct Assistant Professor at St. John’s University

James A. Gagliano was born in Fort Ord, California and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree and a concentration in Military History from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1987. He was commissioned as an Infantry Officer in the United States Army, serving as a Light Infantry Platoon Leader and Company Executive Officer in the 10th Mountain Division, while stationed at Fort Benning, Georgia, and Fort Drum, New York. His awards include the Airborne, Air Assault and Jungle Expert badges, Ranger tab, and Expert Infantryman’s badge.

Mr. Gagliano entered on duty as an FBI Special Agent (SA) on February 10, 1991.  From 1991 to 1997, Mr. Gagliano was assigned to the New York Division, where he worked Organized Crime, Narcotics and Money Laundering investigations. In early 1997, Mr. Gagliano was selected for the Hostage Rescue Team (HRT), the FBI’s elite counter-terror unit located in Quantico, VA, participating in numerous overseas deployments and high-risk tactical resolutions, before returning to the New York Division in 2001 to work Drug matters and as the principal Undercover Agent (UCA) on Police Corruption, Drug, Gambling, and Organized Crime cases. In November 2002, Mr. Gagliano was selected as the Senior Team Leader (STL) of the 45-man FBI New York Office SWAT Team, where he also served as an attachment to Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) U.S. military units in Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom on three separate deployments between 2002/2003. In November 2005, Mr. Gagliano was named to head the Crisis Management and Operations Center Programs in New York. Assignments included oversight of the SWAT Program, USERT (Dive Search), ERT (Crime Scene), Operational Medicine, Rapid Deployment, the Special Agent Bomb Technicians (SABTs), & the Hazardous Materials Response Team (HMRT). Responsibilities also included the design & execution of annual Field Training Exercises; one involved approximately 1,000 NYO employees, which was featured on CNN’s “Out in the Open” television show in September 2007. He was awarded the FBI’s Medal for Bravery, the FBI’s second highest award for valor, for actions in June of 1993 while serving on the SWAT Team.

In May 2008, Mr. Gagliano was named Supervisory Senior Resident Agent (SSRA) of the NYO’s Hudson Valley Resident Agency (HVRA), responsible for FBI operations in the upstate New York counties of Orange, Dutchess and Sullivan. He subsequently formed the Hudson Valley Safe Streets Task Force (HVSSTF) in 2009, and in 2010, his multi-agency unit received the “Top Gang Unit” award by the New York Gang Investigator’s Association (NYGIA), and the “True American Hero” award from the Federal Drug Agents Foundation (FDAF) for the multiple high profile prosecutions of violent street gangs.

In August of 2012, Mr. Gagliano was selected as the Deputy Legal Attaché (DLAT) in México City, México. After completing Spanish language training at the Department of State’s Foreign Service Institute (FSI) in February of 2013, he posted to the U.S. Embassy in México, serving as the DLAT and the Acting Legal Attaché (a Senior Executive Service position), the senior F.B.I. law enforcement official and the Director’s personal representative to the Mexican government, while overseeing federal law enforcement operations that included kidnappings, white collar crime, foreign espionage, crimes against children, cyber matters, narco-trafficking, and fugitive apprehension (including capture of two FBI “Top Ten” fugitives) until June of 2014.

Mr. Gagliano was then appointed Chief of Staff, Special Assistant to the Assistant-Director-in-Charge in January of 2015 for the FBI’s largest field office in New York, which includes 2,400 employees and encompasses all FBI operations within the five boroughs of New York City, eight upstate counties, as well as the La Guardia, John F. Kennedy International, and Stewart International airports. He retired from the FBI, after 25 years of service.
