Mine Action Seminar

Mine Action Seminar

5 – 6 February, 2015. Ankara, Turkey

Landmine clearing continues to be a priority in Turkey. Some clearance activities had taken place by military itself and by some private companies.

Turkey acceded to the Ottawa Convention in 2003, and the Convention entered into force for Turkey on 1 March 2004. Turkey undertook to destroy or ensure the destruction of all anti-personnel mines in these areas as soon as possible but not later than 1 March 2014. On 28 March 2013 Turkey submitted a request to extend its mine clearance deadline. The request was granted and a new deadline was set for 1 March 2022. There are three major Mine Action and Explosive Ordnance Clearance projects in Turkey now:

  • Socioeconomic Development through Demining and Increasing the Border Surveillance Capacity at the Eastern Borders of Turkey Phase 1 & 2
  • Southern Border Mine Clearance Project.
  • Military Firing Range Explosive Ordnance Clearance Project.

Protecting and strengthening your business with the right approach to cyber security

The energy sector is increasingly becoming a prime target for organised cyber security crime. Globally, it is estimated that cyber security breaches in oil & gas and power will cost owners $1.87billion by 2018. Cyber-attacks on industrial control systems reported to ICS-CERT jumped from 34 in 2010 to 257 in 2013. The European Union’s adoption of new data protection rules and a new cyber security network by 2015 increases the challenge faced by energy companies in Europe.

With energy companies in the UK already losing approximately ô00 million every year, the sanctions for security breaches will increase the maximum fines from 2% to 5% of a company’s global annual turnover. Despite all the evidence and with such high costs at stakes, many companies do not fully appreciate the risk posed by cybercrime. Their existing security measures often prove to be inadequate and energy firms are routinely refused insurance cover for business interruption. Additionally, the current mainstream cyber insurance market neither fully addresses the needs of the energy sector, nor provides coverage for physical loss or damage.

Furthermore, the waiting periods for cyber security coverage can be significant in terms of energy networks. With significant numbers of employees having insufficient knowledge of corporate cyber threats, such as SpyEye, Zeus, Stuxnet and Flame, the nation’s critical energy infrastructure remains extremely vulnerable. Energy companies, while struggling with the complexity and size of the networks they manage, need to meet the challenge of surviving and growing in the current cyber security climate now.

City & Financial Global’s Energy Cyber Security Executive Forum is a strategic and practice-driven summit, which will give attendees an excellent opportunity to network with the best of the energy cyber security sector and learn how to actively engage with the cyber security issues. This timely conference will offer participants guidance to minimise the risks, avoid cyber security breaches through internal controls and proper adherence to standards, develop resilience, protect and strengthen your business in the UK and globally.

Join us for a day of:

  • Keynote presentations
  • In-depth focus sessions
  • Technology updates
  • Panel discussions focusing on the most pressing cyber security issues in oil & gas and power industries
  • Attend this forum to understand:
  • What the UK Government is doing to improve security skills and awareness within the energy sector
  • How to educate your employees to deal with the new realities of cybercrime in the oil & gas industry
  • Why energy companies fail to effectively manage data security breach incidents and how you can enhance your incident management detection and response capabilities
  • What coverage cyber risk insurers provide for business interruption and how to deal with the ‘cyber risk gap’ in the energy sector
You will also learn about:
  • EU response to the increased cyber threat in the energy sector. How does the United States currently manage cyber security?
  • Recent cyber security incidents that have the most profound impact on the oil & gas industry. Step by step analysis and the lessons learned
  • Effectively responding to real-time operational security concerns of SCADA devices and networks for power and utilities. Retesting vulnerabilities to eliminate threats
  • The trends in the type, volume and calibre of cybersecurity attacks in the energy sector. The most effective risk mitigation strategies and commercially viable cyber security policies

CBRNe Summit 2015

CBRNe Summit 2015

25-27 February, 2015. Rome, Italy

Our 2nd annual CBRNe Summit will provide attendees with unrivalled access to international first responders from the Armed Forces, Emergency Services and Law Enforcement Agencies.

Many CBRNe stakeholders are well drilled when it comes to countermeasures and decontamination response to a Chemical, Radiological, Nuclear or Explosive attack. However, if a Biological attack was to happen at a major event or international travel hub the response is much more complex and sophisticated as each biological attack is different and can be spread in many different forms and speed.

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.


  • 2 day conference with 30+ high level international speakers
  • Live CBRNe Capability Demonstration
  • Official Government Support
  • Exhibition with 15-20 companies showcasing their CBRNe countermeasures
  • 150+ attendees

Our 2014 CBRNe Summit attracted 140+ attendees from across the globe and we expect this number to continue to grow for our 2015 event.

Border Management & Technologies Summit

Border Management & Technologies Summit

12 – 14 May, 2015. Istanbul, Turkey

Now entering our 3rd year of our Border Management & Technologies Summit, we will look into emerging countries that are making significant improvements to their border security. The event will also look into the new technologies and paradigms being developed to create more efficient borders.

With Integrated Border Management systems becoming established across Europe we will be looking at case studies from Eastern European nations on their development of creating a strong IBM strategy and the importance of sharing information with neighbouring nations.

Passenger screening has leaped forward in terms of developments in recent years and our event will discuss the improvements in passenger screening at airports and analyse what else can be done to improve security.

Identity Management systems being developed at borders and are becoming more sophisticated, our event will look into the different techniques used by border forces across Europe. The EU is focused on creating Smart Borders and the use of biometrics such as new technologies such as Fly on the Finger are being pushed through to key travel hubs across the EU. Border Management & Technologies Summit will review the latest technologies and evaluate the improvements they will bring to travel hubs across Europe.

Meet with senior government officials from Turkey, Romania, Moldova, United Kingdom, Tajikistan, Georgia, Switzerland, The Netherlands, France and many more…
