World Border Security Congress will provide a platform for the world’s border protection forces and agencies to discuss and debate the current and future issues and challenges facing the border management, security and migration management sectors.

Controlling and managing international borders in the 21st Century continues to challenge the border control and immigration agencies around the world. It is generally agreed that in a globalised world borders should be as open as possible, but threats continue to remain in ever evolving circumstances and situations.

Advancements in technology are assisting in the battle to maintain safe and secure international travel. The border security professional still remains the front line against these threats.

World Border Security Congress is a high level, 3 day event providing you with the opportunity to reach the senior decision makers in the border protection and management industry.

3rd Middle East cyber security summit – critical Infrastructure Information Protection

26-27  March, 2017. Riyadh

With growth in demand for data centers and managed and cloud services expected to be in the double and triple digits, there appears to be significant opportunity in this segment of Saudi Arabia’s ICT market. Pressure on departmental expenditures in the public sector and a subsequent slowing of growth in the private sector could act as drivers for this expansion as customers seek cost-saving synergies. However, there are also issues to address, including security fears, regulation and the development of effective strategic partnerships.

Nispana is excited to announce its 3rd Middle East Cyber Security Summit on the 26 & 27 March, 2017 in Riyadh. With the Kingdom’s plan to diversify into non-oil revenues like infrastructure, education, tourism etc, ICT is set to play a pivotal role especially in the key areas like infrastructure for cloud services, data centers, disaster recovery, big data and analytics, mobility and security. If your firm provides one or more of the above services, this is one event you cannot afford to miss out on!

Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resilience Europe

Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resilience Europe

9-11 May 2017

Crown Plaza Den Haag Promenade The Hague, Netherlands

Attacks on critical infrastructure sites are a favoured target for terrorist groups, for good reason. They offer what is seen by the terrorist as a soft target, that is, maximum effect with minimal chance of interdiction. The potential effects in terms of damage, the hugely detrimental economic impact, disruption of normal daily life and resulting publicity, can far outweigh the terrorist organisations commitment in both manpower and risk.

 

The European Commission has adopted a communication on Critical Infrastructure Protection in the fight against terrorism, enhancing European prevention, preparedness and response in the event of terrorist attacks involving critical infrastructures.

 

The European Programme for Critical Infrastructure Protection (EPCIP) considers measures that will enhance the level of protection of infrastructure against external threats, with the Operator Security Plan for all infrastructures designated as European critical.

 

Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resilience Europe brings together leading stakeholders from industry, operators, agencies and governments to collaborate on securing Europe. The conference will look at developing existing national or international legal and technical frameworks, integrating good risk management, strategic planning and implementation.

 

Critical Information Infrastructure Protection / Cyber Security

With the ever increasing threat from cyber attacks on critical infrastructure, the information and data stored and used by CNI systems and operators can be more crucial than the system itself. CIIP is becoming ever more important as part of the cyber security strategy of an organisation or CNI operator.

 

The European Union is developing its policy on critical energy infrastructures in relation to the European Programme for Critical Infrastructure Protection (“EPCIP”) which considers measures that will enhance, where necessary, the level of protection of certain infrastructures against external threats.

 

The integrity of critical infrastructures and their reliable operation are vital for the well-being of the citizens and the functioning of the economy. The implementation of the EPCIP, under Council Directive 2008/114/EC on the identification and designation of European critical infrastructures and the need to improve their protection, has not been completely successful.

 

The ever changing nature of threats, whether natural through climate change, or man-made through terrorism activities, either physical or cyber attacks, means the need to continually review and update policies, practices and technologies to meet these demands.

 

Critical Infrastructure Protection and Resilience Europe is the leading conference and exhibition discussing the challenges and issues surrounding the ever increasing threats and solutions for securing Europe’s critical infrastructure.

Future Armoured Vehicles Weapon Systems

Future Armoured Vehicles Weapon Systems

28th-29th June 2017 Copthorne Tara Hotel, London, UK

http://www.fav-ws.com/hsrc

For more information, contact Theresa Chung at: tchung@smi-online.co.uk

Future Armoured Vehicles Weapon Systems will return on the 28th and 29th June 2017 to London to discuss the very latest technological developments from research and the industry that are enhancing combat effectiveness and lethality.

Both within the conventional and asymmetrical environments, armoured vehicle lethality has always (and continues to offer), a vital means of boosting the combat effectiveness of ground forces. However, this conference is particularly timely. As the US Army increases its presence of heavy armour in Europe to the highest levels seen in years, there is a need to develop offensive assets and the deterrence capabilities that the armoured vehicle provides. In recent years hostile actors have increased their own combat vehicles protection, armament and fires to near peer status. There is therefore a need to re-examine and access the effectiveness of NATO fighting vehicle offensive capability and means of countering threats.

Drawing on experience from previous operations and ongoing activity in the capability development space, future requirements will be presented and discussed. Importantly, to increase awareness of the technologies and capabilities that might be leveraged, an examination of the latest weapon systems, vehicle configurations, smart munitions, high energy lasers, fire control, targeting, simulation and autonomous technology,  shall be just some of the areas covered.

Notable presenters include Slovenian Ministry of Defence, NSPA, British Army, Danish Army Combat and Fire Support Centre, Spanish MoD, US Army, Finnish Army, Vetronics Research Centre, Soucy Defence, UK Armed Forces, United States Marine Corps and United States Army.
