Maximising Protection in Uncertain Times


IFSEC 2009 has announced a high-level three-day conference programme covering the most cutting-edge issues in the security industry today. Following its successful launch in 2008, the IFSEC Conference returns in 2009 with even more content and industry leading speakers to ensure visitors have the opportunity to address all their key security challenges.

The IFSEC Conference will run alongside the IFSEC Exhibition when it takes place at the NEC Birmingham from 11 ­ 14 May 2009. The internationally renowned exhibition provides security installers, manufacturers, distributors, IT integrators, security managers and consultants with a platform to keep up to date with the ever-changing developments of the global security industry. 

Each day of the conference will be dedicated to a specific area of security and will be chaired by an industry leading figure. Day 1 will look at Global, National and Local Protection and will focus on issues such as maintaining business resilience and continuity, the latest security intelligence and security strategies and planning procedures of Critical National Infrastructure. This day will be chaired by David Kidd, Regional Security Manager at the US Embassy. 

Day 2 of the conference programme will concentrate on Corporate Security Management and will look at issues such as the threats of e-crime and online fraud, security managers overcoming increasing financial restritions to maintain a secure environment and the dynamics of employee security. This day will be overseen by Bill Wylie, Chairman of the Security Institute. 

Finally, day 3 will explore Technological Innovations in Practice and will concentrate on various issues including the advantages of interoperability of security systems, the pitfalls and challenges associated with IP implementation and the future of security systems. Alex Carmichael, Technical and Membership Services Director of the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), will be chairing the final day.

In total, 27 expert speakers will present sessions over the three days including:

Stephen Cooper, Head of Security, Olympic Delivery Authority
DCI Chris Phillips, Head, National Counter Terrorism Security Office (NaCTSO)
Gillies Crichton, Head of HSE Compliance, Glasgow International Airport
