Discover new security strategies with IFSEC’s industry-leading seminar programme
The seminar and conference programme takes places across three days at IFSEC International and is rich with informative sessions covering best practice, ongoing trends and future developments in physical and perimeter security. The event’s packed agenda of seminars, speeches and presentations comes in at over 35 hours of content, in dedicated venues including the Keynote Arena, the Future of Security Theatre, brought to you by Tavcom, and the Converged Security Centre in partnership with Vidsys.
These seminars will bring you the latest on safe cities, anti-terror and the protection of critical national infrastructure, and include a variety of real-world case studies that will demonstrate the efficacy of new solutions, technology and physical security strategies. You’ll also have the chance to put your questions directly to policy makers and anti-terror experts – last year, those who attended the discussions in the Keynote Arena heard from Michael Chertoff, former Secretary of the United States Department of Homeland Security, and Dr Pippa Malmgren, former White House adviser.
This year, world-renowned speakers will continue to discuss and debate some of the most critical issues facing the security industry, from cybersecurity and ethical and legal challenges to extremism. In 2019, video analytics, AI, machine-based learning, a year of GDPR, Brexit and smart cities are all on the agenda, overseen by returning Keynote Arena chair Frank Gardner OBE. Frank Gardner himself is a key figure in counter-terror knowledge, having worked as a journalist and broadcaster in the Middle East, covering global terrorism. His expertise in this area will contextualise the sessions in the wider global counter terror discussion.
These speakers and presenters highlight the uniquely strong calibre of thought leadership that IFSEC International offers. The seminar programme gives visitors a unique access to the ideas, products and innovations at the heart of the industry, helping you shape your security strategy to tackle the threats of tomorrow.
Products in action – see security solutions put to the test at the LPCB Attack Testing Zone
Discover the security products that will perform at scale to meet your unique requirements. Let exhibitors provide you with first-hand evidence, and come away with the reassurance you need that these products will perform under attack.
Ensure you don’t miss out on IFSEC’s LPCB Attack Zone, where you can witness accredited technicians put perimeter defences to the test in adrenaline-packed, real-time performances. It’s your chance to see the most innovative technology in action, including a wide range of perimeter defences, façades, safes, security enclosures and padlocks, deep learning analytics, behavioural biometrics and smart locks.
You’ll know that at times looks can be deceptive when it comes to selecting security equipment. This is why the LPCB will pit certified security equipment against non-certified products, so you can come away knowing exactly which security solutions will deliver the levels of protection you need.
As well as this, IFSEC’s ‘Show Me How’ feature will give you the opportunity to see on-stand demonstrations and pose any questions directly to the dedicated technicians who are behind the technology in question. Just look out for ‘Show Me How’ badges around the IFSEC show floor.
From the physical to integrated and cybersecurity
IFSEC’s remit goes far beyond just physical security. With cyber threats set to cost business $6 trillion annually by 2021, the need for comprehensive, end-to-end cybersecurity solutions is greater than ever.
IFSEC International will help you identify the right solutions to link your physical and cybersecurity strategies. This is highlighted in the Converged Security Zone, where you’ll benefit from a wide range of simulated security scenarios, conveying situations ranging from transport and utilities to open spaces and infrastructure.
It’s a chance to see first-hand how integrated security systems can align with supplementary information sources, including social media and Internet of Things devices, for a complete picture that delivers high level information security resilience.
