Physical Security Track

Emerging Threats for CI
The ever changing nature of threats, whether natural, through climate change, or man-made through terrorism activities and insider threats, means the need to continually review and update policies, practices and technologies to meet these growing demands. But what are those emerging threats and how can we identify, monitor and manage their levels of potential damage?

Latest Technologies for Critical Infrastructure and Critical Asset Protection

From layered solutions to space based CI, as we rely more heavily on technologies and satellites for communications, navigation, observation and detection, the requirement to ensure that ground and space based systems are both secure and resilient becomes more urgent. What new technologies are emerging to secure physical and space based environments?

Crisis Coordination, Management & Response

Planning and preparation is the key to ensuring that CI and venue operators have the right equipment, processes and procedures in place to respond in the event of an emergency. Coordination and information sharing is essential for situational awareness and can improve the planning process. How do we better coordinate and co-operate to enhance protection and resilience.

PPP & Collaboration in CIP

With many critical infrastructures in the hands of private organisations, how does the responsibility of security and resilience lie between government, with public accountability to keep them safe, secure and operational 24/7, and the private operator, with additional responsibilities towards shareholders? How can improving the communication between the public sector and private sector enhance protection and can incentives be employed to better engage private owners into PPP?
