Re: Security
Fortunately the weather wasn't an issue last night, but it's good to know that camera technology has evolved to see better in the dark, had their been a repeat performance of the 2013 power outage.

Re: Security
The power issue is a really important one, so I am glad you raised it. In addition to the power grid aspect in the article you linked to, steps need to be taken on-site as well as any number of things can impact power to an event -- whether a utility issue, an on-site equipment breakdown or a security threat. However, new advancements in camera technology tied to uninterrupted power supply (UPS) via power over Ethernet (PoE) technology can provide high-quality color video in amazing clarity even when the lights go out. Cost-effective thermal technology can also be used in complete darkness. Both PoE and UPS combine to represent additional best practices to secure an environment, and connected to new types of cameras can give operations personnel visibility in the dark they couldn't even imagine a few short years ago.

It's great to hear the advances in security monitoring that technology can bring to bear, and how it can help make the event safer. I was a little surprised not to see (unless I missed it!) an article on IW covering the impact on the cellular networks of an event like this. Even with the main providers undoubtedly rolling in their COWs, you know the networks are going to be so totally oversaturated it'll be a disaster. Somebody must be able to offer a good PAYG WiFi system within the stadium, to provide better speeds and enhanced offload, you'd hope. Is there such a thing? Will gigabit WiFi make that more practical?

Power Play
Add to this list efforts by electric grid and local utility officials who need to make sure MetLife Stadium doesn't suffer from the type of pwoer outage fiasco that hit the Superdome last year.  Last year's incident was more of failure of the local power grid, but for a while, no one knew if it was a terrorist (security) incident, some diabolical fans unhappy with the Baltimore Raven's lead, or just a overblown circuits.  But it does point to a bigger issue.

Super Bowl security
The tragic Boston Marathon events have no doubt been studied, especially with regard to collaboration technologies, by all the teams working to keep the Super Bowl safe.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
