Lester Hightower, VP & CIO, Florida East Coast Railway As I write this article in October of 2017, outdoor video surveillance seems like something that the Florida East Coast Railway (FECR) could not live without, but the truth is that our first sizable installation went into service only in 2014, and the company was founded in 1895.
FECR’s first outdoor video surveillance installation was part of a large, green field project to build a new intermodal container transfer facility (ICTF) in Ft. Lauderdale, adjacent to Port Everglades (PEV). The ICTF at PEV is FECR’s most technologically advanced and it includes many technologies that were first introduced on the FECR in that project. One of those technologies is outdoor video surveillance over the large outdoor space that is a railroad ICTF.

Abramson, Ph.D. SVP of Information Services & Technology and CIO, HealthPartners As a Chief Information Officer, I spend the bulk of my management time in the real world of I.T. costs, suppliers, business planning, operations improvement, projects, human dynamics and, of course, risk management and cybersecurity.I expect that is true for most of my peers as well.

Alexander Campbell, Manager Records, Cohen & Gresser LLP Recently I found myself walking to Central Park in the Upper East Side neighborhood where I reside in NYC and I happened upon a group of construction workers taking a break.
