Must attend event for the security industry: International Security Week

2020 has presented a raft of unexpected challenges for governments and security organisations around the world. While the industry is recognised for its ability to adapt and respond to changing threats and environments, the impact of COVID-19 has created an unprecedented pace of change. It is against this backdrop that we are set to welcome leading experts from around the globe from 30 November – 3 December for the first-ever International Security Week (ISWeek).

Incorporating International Security Expo (ISE), International Cyber Expo (ICE) and International Disaster Response Expo (IDR), ISWeek will host a series of exclusive, free-to-watch innovative sessions that elevate the event beyond the typical slide presentation and webcam format seen at most virtual conferences. Filmed in a television studio setting, with high production value, ISWeek offers viewers a chance to hear from a host of different perspectives on the challenges being faced by nations and businesses, from both the public and private sectors, as well as those affected first-hand by terrorism.

Opened each day by ISE’s Chairman, Admiral the RT. Hon. Lord West of Spithead GCB DSC PC, the week will be split into four key sections:

  • Day One (30 November) will focus on International Security, sponsored by @HS Security Ltd. Spanning crowded places, aviation and transport, we will explore the priorities of the UK’s Counter Terror Police; the impact of new Protect Duty legislation through Martyn’s Law; and how the coronavirus has created new opportunities for terrorists to develop, prepare and plan for future attacks with exclusive insights from a former member of Al Qaeda, and M16 spy.
  • Day Two (1 December) will shine a light on a growing area of risk for governments and businesses alike: Cyber Security, sponsored by @Tripwire. Our world-class speakers will delve into cyber threat mitigation, offering advice and examples of how best to secure and protect digital networks and assets.
  • Day Three (2 December) will address National Security and the importance of Critical National Infrastructure (CNI), sponsored by @APSTEC Systems. We’ll discuss the issues that are affecting policing on the ground today, the UK governments priorities for innovation, and how to protect the nations’ assets through policy and implementation.
  • Finally, Day Four (3 December) will take a closer look at International Disaster Response, sponsored by @BlackBerry and the many aspects of disaster planning, provision of capability and resources to deal with a plethora of man-made and natural disasters. Practical lessons will be offered with a look at the response to the Novichok incidents in Salisbury; immigrants risking their lives to cross the channel, massive new facilities such as the Nightingale hospitals, and the women adopting leadership roles.

The programme of invaluable sessions at ISWeek, delivered by the world’s foremost security experts, offers attendees a chance to learn about the industry’s most hard-hitting topical subjects. All ISWeek content is CPD certified by The Security Institute meaning attendees can also gain two points for every hour of learning, offering a total of 29 CPD points in total.

In addition, attendees who join us live for ISWeek will receive the latest State of Security report, authored by @Westlands Advisory. The annual analysis of the security industry - worth £5,000 - provides an outlook of how the sector will evolve over the next five years, detailing critical trends and market analysis.
