BFSI Physical Security Summit

BFSI Physical Security Summit

7 July, 2016. Hotel Sofitel, Mumbai

BFSI Physical Security Summit is a unique invitation-only event with thought provoking conference sessions, executive roundtables, and innovative networking opportunities resulting in a day of focused, structured business development and information exchange.

BSFI PHYSICAL SECURITY SUMMIT is scheduled for 7th July 2016 at Hotel Sofitel, Mumbai.

Keeping the importance of physical security for BFSI sector in mind Crux Creative Solutions Pvt. Ltd. is organizing BFSI Physical Security Summit.
The summit will discuss issues related to the security of Retail Banks, ATMs, Cash Vans and Data Centers. Networks and computer systems have always gained more importance when Banks have planned their security strategies. However, physical security remains, even today, one of the first links a Bank must look to strengthen "Because that’s where the money is." Physical security is vital to the security infrastructure of a Bank as it protects not only the information assets but also the most critical assets, the employees. From robberies, to protests, to active shooters, banks must be aware of the various physical threats they face. Similarly, security of cash in transit and ATMs cannot be ignored. ATMs have been identified by gangs as the weak link in the banks’ operations. as ATM networks have expanded worldwide, so has the sophistication of global crime. The combination of these factors has led to intensified security concerns at the ATM. Combating this issue requires consistent focus and global defense solutions throughout the ATM provider chain.


UAV Technology Eastern Europe

UAV Technology Eastern Europe

21-22 September, 2016. Prague, Czech Republic

As Eastern European nations seek to advance their intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance capabilities, the UAV continues to offer a highly effective platform to achieve these objectives. The demands of the security situation in the region demonstrate the need for accurate and timely intelligence, to decisively influence commander’s decisions. Whether ensuring the security of national borders, or directly supporting operations and military exercises, the UAV and tactful strategies for its use offer a proven means of boosting mission effectiveness. As the only meeting of its kind in the region, SMi’s UAV Technology Eastern Europe conference will explore the tactics and technologies for advancing capability in this important area. Drawing on the experience and ongoing work of regional military experts and those from across NATO, the forum will deliberate operational lessons learnt, from challenging environments such as counter-insurgency operations in the Middle East to ongoing security efforts across Europe. In addition to strategy for UAV use, military programme managers from procurement shall discuss the requirements and updates for key programmes Importantly, the conference will also benefit from the guidance of technical leaders from research and industry, whose insight into the latest UAV platforms, optronics, sensors, datalinks, ground control centres, airborne weapons and mission support systems will provide greater awareness of existing and future capability.


CYCRONII Managing the Cyber Security Threats to Banking and Financial Sector

CYCRONII Managing the Cyber Security Threats to Banking and Financial Sector

8 July, 2016. Hotel Sofitel, Mumbai

A successful online attack could cause significant financial, operational and reputational harm to firms, as well as potentially threatening the stability of the financial system. Whilst banks have developed some of the most sophisticated risk mitigation capabilities, the threats are evolving rapidly and often have international dimensions. A genuinely global level strategic approach is needed to overcome these challenges. Cyber threats to the financial industry are not only external, but also internal. Among reported cyber-crimes, those committed by malicious insiders in financial services are amongst the most significant threats to networked systems and data. Financial institutions face the ongoing challenge of securing legacy systems that are linked together in a sub-optimal way. Online banking has become commonplace, whilst new digital currencies are regularly appearing (but little understood). In the post-Snowden / post-Sony world, cyber security has never been more crucial

This conference will place the BFSI industry at the forefront of a comprehensive, global approach to meeting head on the challenges in managing the cyber risk. It will bring together the key decision makers and cyber security experts from banking, insurance, financial, government, law enforcement and solution providers to develop common views on the extent of the challenge and the actions needed to respond.

Border Management & Technologies Summit Asia

Border Management & Technologies Summit Asia

18-20 October, 2016. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Asian nations have been developing their borders significantly in the past few years. Many Asian airports now have the latest biometric and passenger naming systems available, however, many nations are still catching up, and with more passengers flying through Asian nation’s development on their borders is critical.

We are pleased to bring our successful Border Management & Technologies Summit to Asia. Our event will focus on the current border management systems in place across Asia-Pacific. Many countries in Asia have separate borders from the mainland, such as islands, which makes it harder to manage the borders.

The maritime environment in Asia is critical and many countries rely on fisheries to generate their country’s GDP. With this in mind surveillance of the maritime domain is an important aspect of border security in Asia. Our event will focus on the challenges of managing coastal borders and tracking migration through the maritime domain.

Border Management & Technologies Summit Asia will also discuss the development of Integrated Border Management (IBM) systems in Asia and review the capabilities of a number of nations in Asia.
