Dr George Redpath CEng FIET
Joint Managing Director
Dr George Redpath has a highly proven, technical reputation within the global access control industry. As Director of Engineering/Hardware for 25 years within CEM Systems & Software House/Tyco, George was responsible for the design, product development and technical implementation of complex access control systems. His forward thinking ideas are always a step ahead of the industry. Indeed George was responsible for the design of the first ever Power over Ethernet Access Control solution to the market.
More recently, George has spent the last five years assisting global companies’ transition to secure access control technologies and credentials and is highly proficient with complex issues surrounding card number ranges, formats and site codes. He provides a practical overview of the vulnerability issues that have caused the loss of trust in access control credentials, covering both the technologies and behaviours that have led to this situation. It is important that within the new generation of credentials, that these lessons be highlighted and learnt to ensure that the security systems currently being deployed today are open, secure and upgradeable for future challenges.
