The Security Institute, the UK membership body for security professionals, has announced details of its 2013 annual conference and exhibition, which runs on June 19 at The Marriott Regents Park Hotel in London.
Bringing together some of the industry’s thought leaders, this event will address the key issues facing security professionals. Focusing on three areas – Leadership and Management, Cyber Security and Emerging Trends – each module will conclude with a moderated panel question and answer session.
Kicking off the conference will be a keynote address from former BBC governor and chairman of the British Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC), Baroness Pauline Neville-Jones. This will be followed by the Leadership and Management part of the event where Keith Bloodworth of CNL Software, Graham Smith of Influencing Skills and Patrick Mercer MP will offer their thoughts on how to take the security industry forward in these challenging times.
The Cyber Security section follows, and Alex Moore of the National Cyber Security Programme, Mike Gillespie of Advent IM and the Earl of Erroll will address issues including government strategy, identifying vulnerabilities, and managing and addressing cyber threats.
After lunch, forming the Emerging Trends module will be Bob Randall of Associated British Foods, Allison Wylde of London Metropolitan University Business School and Nigel Carpenter of AMEC. They will discuss subjects such as protecting the food supply chain, flood risks and protecting utilities. Rounding off this line up will be a closing address from journalist, Jon Clements.
After the conference delegates are invited to attend an informal dinner at the Marriott Regents Park Hotel, where they will be able to mingle with the day’s speakers and discuss some of the topics covered.
‘Building on the feedback received after last year’s event, our 2013 Annual Conference & Exhibition promises to be an fantastic occasion that really shouldn’t be missed,’ said Emma Shaw, the new chairman of the Security Institute.
‘Delegates will hear from a range of expert speakers who will provide insight into current industry trends – as well as highlighting what can be expected in the future. The conference also provides great opportunities to develop skills, build knowledge, and enhance career prospects by meeting with other Institute members.”
