The Tech Blog Writer Podcast - Inspired Tech Startup Stories & Interviews With Tech Leaders, CEOs, Entrepreneurs and Innovators On This Daily Tech Podcast


Jul 3, 2018

Mike Ellenbogen is the CEO of Evolv Technology which is transforming venue security. As adversaries shift their focus towards event arenas, threats have shifted from petty crimes and rambunctious conduct to something entirely different. Threats can come from anywhere and as recent security events have shown, it is not unique to any one place.

After connecting with security executives at some of the largest sports stadiums and event arenas in the U.S., Evolv believes a risk-based approach to security is critical. During today's conversation we discuss:

  • What needs to be done to keep patrons safe – including providing protection beyond the walls of a building
  • The elements that make up an effective physical security plan
    How by embracing a risk management strategy, venues can focus their most rigorous screening on the 1%, rather than the 99%.
  • How Port Authority police tested the Evolv Edge high-tech body scanner at the World Trade Center PATH station
  • What Gillette Stadium is doing to safely secure its own venue and why a superior visitor experience and security do not need to be mutually exclusive
