WHat??
Seems most people think of "physical security professionals" as security guards and their staff. They do not make good cybersecurity professionals.

People who install an maintain security equipment are technicians. They have IT skills as well. They understand some aspects of cyber and can level up.

Physical and Cyber Coming Together
Great piece. Strongly agree with your advice that physical security pros build their skills on the cyber side. Transformation is underway to bring the physical and cyber teams together for a holistic, integrated approach to security strategy and operations. Modern technologies are being used to drive that forward. Security pros who want to lead that charge will require knowledge/expertise on both sides of the house.
