Highlights include Temitope Olodo, President of the Africa Security Forum, presenting a session on how the face of terrorism is evolving and why nations must rewrite their CVE strategy to win the war of terror.
Referencing recent case studies, Sergeant Peter Lucas, Community and Business Engagement, National Project Servator Team at City of London Police, will focus on how operations, community engagement and communications can be used to disrupt hostile activity at major events, with an introduction to hostile reconnaissance. Giving a very personal account in the first of the ‘Realities of Terror’ sessions, a real-life hostage, Peter Moore, will share his account of being taken hostage for 946 days, whilst a contractor in Iraq 2007 will highlight his own hard-hitting reality of living with terrorists for 2 years, 7 months and 1 day.
Helping to shape the agenda, a carefully curated Advisory Council made up of the most credible Government, industry and leading academic stakeholders has been formed to ensure the exhibition accurately reflects the security industry and covers the full spectrum of security trends. An impressive 62 industry experts sit on this panel, including the likes of Dr Abdulla Al Hashimi, Chief Executive Officer of Emirates Group Security, Chris Trelawny, Director of Security, International Maritime Organisation, IMO, Mark Pearce, Head of Security at Emirates Stadium and Julian Platt, Deputy National Coordinator, Counter Terrorism Policing, PROTECT & PREPARE, NaCTSO & NCTPHQ.

“As the world begins to open up again, we are delighted to host the show’s first physical event in over 18 months and connect the security industry through face-to-face meetings. With such an incredible Advisory Council behind us, we’re confident we can deliver an event that no law enforcement or security professional can miss.”
