What is the threat, what are CPNI and the MET doing about it and how important is public private cooperation are the subjects that will start this critical subject area? Internationalised by Lina Kolesnikova will outline the EU project on Protect Allied Cities against Terrorism in Securing Urban Areas, before we have a detailed look at the challenges for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham delivered by David Stewart, just finishing as the Interim Head of Security for that project.
However, every crowded place has a different challenge, and these will be brought out by Beverley Griffiths the Resilience Capability lead with the Cabinet Office as she chats to Barry Palmer from the Tate gallery, Philip Jones from Westfield, Simon Hankins from Parliament and Darren Henaghan from Borough Market.
Looking at the high footfall threat we see CPNI looking at screening capabilities before Paul Williams delivers a case study into the O2 and Chris Phillips and Roger Cummings look at Faith communities and designing technology into Crowed places respectively. All aspects of Crowded place security will be covered in this busy programme.
