Cyber Security World Conference

Cyber Security World Conference

21 November, 2014. New York City

Cyber security is no longer a term to ignore for neither individuals nor corporations.  The daily activities of all Americans, the country’s economic prominence and global security rely on a safe and resilient cyberspace. Yet the number of cyber-attacks has increased dramatically over the last years, exposing confidential personal and business data, disrupting critical operations, and imposing high costs on the economy overall.

Just recently, J.P. Morgan Chase, America’s largest bank with $2.39 trillion in assets, announced that about 76 million households and 7 million of small-business customers had been affected by a cybersecurity attack in one of the most sweeping disclosed global breaches. The bank said the unknown attackers stole customers’ contact information, which included names, email addresses, phone numbers and addresses, affected an amount equivalent to two-thirds of American households.

A brief walk down memory lane of some the biggest recent cyber-attacks now include Adobe Systems, Automated Data Processing, Citigroup, E*Trade Financial, Fidelity Investments, Home Depot, HSBC, Nasdaq OMX, Neiman Marcus, Target and Wal-mart. It is not unlikely to consider that the information of every American has already been compromised in any of these publicly disclosed attacks.

Welcome to Cyber Security World Conference 2014 where renowned information security authorities and innovative service providers will bring their latest thinking to hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting today’s enterprises. Topics that Cyber Security World Conference 2014 will discuss include:

  • Cyber Security Megatrends Security Professionals can’t Ignore Today
  • Designing and Managing Effective Information Security Programs
  • Is Biometrics the Key to Personal and Corporate Security?
  • How Hackers Really Operate to Obtain Financial Data
  • Key Considerations about Security in the Internet of Things Age
  • Strengthening the Security of Industry-wide Technology Infrastructure
  • Cyber Security and its Role in the Overall Security of the United States

Maritime Security in Africa Potential for Public-Private Partnerships

Maritime Security in Africa Potential for Public-Private Partnerships

3 December, 2014. London, United Kingdom

While piracy has drawn the media’s attention, maritime security is much more all-encompassing. Africa in particular has seen many discussions about maritime security issues in recent years and various documents have been signed on the regional and continental level. Translating good intentions into practice, however, will take time. Short-term capability gaps will have to be addressed much sooner; private maritime security companies could play an important role.

This master class will provide insights into maritime security challenges in African coastal states, explain political developments and highlight two case studies. It will focus on the potential for partnerships between national governments and private maritime security companies to address capability gaps in the maritime domain.

The target audience are representatives from the private maritime security industry, regulatory and certification bodies as well as national governments and international organisations.

• Be able to better articulate the relationships between underlying technologies and C4ISR systems

Training and Simulation for Night Vision Systems

Training and Simulation for Night Vision Systems

9 December, 2014. London, United Kingdom

Night Vision operations continue to grow in importance with EASA/CAA/FAA licensing and aircraft clearances being extended into civilian air operations. The military has always had these clearances since early 1970s. Training is still generally carried out using the aircraft but with some simulation. This masterclass looks at Virtual Terrain Image Generation for Night Vision Googles (NVGs) and provides interactive high fidelity simulation and training for both air and ground operations, GLONASS, in line with announcements made in July.

  • Hear about the latest technology in training in Night Vision Systems
  • Have the opportunity to better formulate your night vision training to better your squadron’s performance

Operational Test & Evaluation versus Experimental Flight Test

Operational Test & Evaluation versus Experimental Flight Test

9 December, 2014. London, United Kingdom

As the vast majority of flight test activity at traditional flight test centres and operational evaluation units now comprises systems test and evaluation, rather than envelope expansion testing, we examine the case for more specific training in systems procurement, evaluation, integration and testing. Full flight test training is expensive, time consuming and unnecessary for the vast majority of tasks associated with these processes; moreover, many flight test centres and operational evaluation units employ current front line pilots with the task of conducting integration test and evaluation, but without any specific task related training. We examine the potential benefits of providing bespoke training in OT&E (and DT) to personnel employed in military and commercial procurement, test and evaluation.

  • Gain knowledge of flight test sequences
  • Gain a better understanding of how OTE training can benefit design, procurement and integration processes
  • Gain a better understanding of how military and commercial organisations can become more efficient with in service test and integration processes
  • Gain knowledge of cost effective alternative solutions to your flight test and development needs

CBRNe Summit 2015 will have a key focus on biological outbreaks/terrorism and discuss the best and most appropriate way to address these types of attacks.

There will also be case study presentations from many military and civil organisations discussing their first responder techniques to any CBRNe attack, Threat Intelligence of a CBRNe threat, International Cooperation, Medical Intelligence, CBRNe Forensics and Countering-IEDs.

Our 2015 event is officially supported by the NATO JCBRN Defence Centre of Excellence, NATO EOD Centre of Excellence, Observatory on Security and CBRNe Defence (OSDIFE), University of Rome “Tor Vergata” and the University of the Republic of San Marino.

Through several government agencies such as DTRA and BARDA, the US is constantly upgrading its CBRN defense capabilities and preparedness for mass casualty incidents. Consequently, this leads to the necessity of sharing best practices, raising awareness of persisting challenges, and getting the most novel solutions and approaches out there.
