2023 Summit & Conference Agenda

Global Counter Terror & Serious and Organised Crime Summit

This high-level Summit will looked at how the terror threat has continued to morph, whilst examining the potential threat coming from the war in Ukraine. This acted as a bridge to looking at serious and organised crime in its many different facets. Key government partners and organisations added their insights and thoughts.


International Security Conference

This Conference explored the practical implementation of new policies and their application to a wide range of different areas, in particular around Martyn's Law, aviation security, protecting public places, diversity in security, plus many other areas. These were all e examined through a series of presentations and panel discussions.


International Risk & Resilience Conference

National resilience, alongside industrial and organisational resilience, have all continued to be tested, whilst we continue to see the impacts of global warming and additional environmental risks. This conference gave the latest thinking from individuals and organisations who live, eat and breathe risk and resilience, along with their practical insights.
