Global Security Summit London announces education programme with high-level security speakers

Global Security Summit LondonWith big names from the world of security, finance, Government and policing in attendance, Global Security Summit London ( organisers UBM Live and Pro-Activ Publications have announced the inaugural show’s two-day, sector-driven education programme for 10-11 October 2012.

This bespoke event for end users with security management and converged project responsibilities features a two-day educational programme that will focus on both logical and physical security solutions, addressing convergence, interoperability and infrastructure capabilities along the way. Following on from the current security debate surrounding security for the 2012 London Olympics, Day One of the Global Security Summit London education programme centres on the post-Olympics legacy, the impending security implications and the future of public-private sector partnerships.

Day Two will be more IT-focused, examining the subject of convergence and encompassing the increasing integration of physical and cyber security – both now and in the future. In many organisations physical security and information security are managed by two separate departments. However, in this day and age businesses are increasingly vulnerable to blended threats. Therefore, it’s vital to be able to prioritise risks and respond effectively to a wide variety of threats.  James Willison (of Unified Security, and vice-chairman ASIS International’s European Advisory Council Security Convergence Sub-Committee)and Sarb Sembhi (director of consulting services atIncoming Thought) have worked together on a variety of projects which identify these converged issues and developed integrated solutions. Both are delighted to be introducing the key aspects of their work at Global Security Summit London this coming October. Each day of the new show will be divided into two individual themes with ‘Creating Safer Cities: The Role of Partnerships’ scheduled for the morning of Day One and ‘Security Challenges for Global Organisations’ in the afternoon. Senior speakers will address topics such as Cross-Sector Safety and Security Communications (CSSC), the ever-expanding role of the private sector in security provision across the public realm and global counter-terrorism issues. Maximising business resilience, securing London’s’ transport infrastructure and guidelines on how to embed security into your organisation from the top down will also be explored.


Confirmed speakers for Day One include Andy Trotter (chief constable, British Transport Police), Don Randall MBE (head of security at the Bank of England), Charles Farr (director general of the Office for Security and Counter Terrorism, Home Office) and Mike Bluestone MA CSyP FSyI , chairman of The Security Institute. Commenting on Global Security Summit London, Mike Bluestone said: “I’m delighted that The Security Institute is supporting Global Security Summit London. This important event will attract a serious audience of security professionals who, along with members of The Security Institute, share a common desire to raise professional standards in the security sector.” Bluestone continued: “I’m grateful to have the opportunity to speak at the first Global Security Summit on the topic of Best Practice in Security. None of us has a monopoly on good ideas, and I look forward to not only speaking but also hearing delegates‘ own thoughts and comments on sustaining and enhancing the embedding of good security practice, at all levels, in both the private and public sectors.”


Day Two’s themes incorporate ‘The Role of Technology and Smarter Working in Corporate Security’ in the morning, and ‘Security Convergence, Integration and Interoperability’ in the afternoon. High-level speakers will offer innovative and forward-thinking presentations on topical issues such as ‘E-Crime Prevention and Policing Cyberspace’, ‘Radicalisation and the Internet’ and ‘Future Security Threats’.  ‘The Security Convergence Movement – A holistic approach to security’, ‘How to enhance your Security Integration Capability’ and ‘Global Security: A challenge for the Modern CSO’ will also be discussed. Confirmed speakers include deputy chief constable Stuart Hyde (the ACPO lead on e-crime prevention and president of the Society for the Policing of Cyberspace), Hagai Segal (lecturer at New York University in London), Ian Pearson (futurologist at Futurizon GmbH) and Balaji Srimoolanathan, the principal consultant on Aerospace, Defence & Security at Frost & Sullivan.

Balaji Srimoolanathan explained: “As a speaker at Global Security Summit London, I regard this event to be a unique platform for end users and members of the wider security community to come together and share their thoughts, discuss Best Practice and address critical security challenges and strategic issues around integration, interoperability and infrastructure capabilities.” For further information on Global Security Summit London, the full education programme and speaker line-up please visit, follow us on Twitter (@GSS_London) or join the LinkedIn Group. Companies interested in exhibiting should contact event manager Tracy Bebbington on tel: 0207 921 8065 or e-mail: or Paul Amura (business development director at Pro-Activ Publications) on tel: 020 8295 8307 or e-mail:


Global spending on Homeland Security now stands at about $200 billion annually. But with budgets in Asia now set to increase by 30-percent in its trillion-dollar-plus market, where China, India, Japan and Saudi Arabia are closely followed by the South-East Asia tigers, the message is clear: Asia is already almost as big a market as the United States, which accounts for one third of the world’s Homeland Security expenditure.  But unlike the US, it’ll be a mistake to look at the security situation in Asia as one constant. Asia has many geostrategic regions, each with its own peculiarities, presenting challenges that are either indigenous or insurgencies that survive on cross border support.
The indigenous insurgencies and sometimes conflicts with communal divides have their roots in poor governance and corruption, ethnic inequalities and sense of persecution by the State. In India, these can be seen in the Maoist movement across the centre and the tribal insurgency in the north-east, whereas in Pakistan it is the Shia-Sunni divide, the Balooch insurgency and the Pashtun disaffection in the NWFP (Af-Pak region). Russia’s Chechen problem and China’s battle against discontent in Xinjiang, as well as the Kurdish problem across Iran, Iraq and Turkey all fall in these categories. These require a combination of police cum military operations adhering to the minimum-force dictum to contain the problem, backed with imaginatively delivered packages that address the core grievances of the locals, employment, education, housing and roads.
The second challenge is posed by proxy wars and trans-national threats. This is sometimes even used as an instrument of policy by certain countries, such as Pakistan’s support for cross-border groups that operate in Kashmir which has added momentum to the failures of New Delhi policies, or Islamabad’s support to the Taliban groups in Afghanistan. Likewise, Israeli support for the Jundullah to undermine the Iranian government and the Iranian support for Hezbollah in Lebanon, or more recently the anti-Bahrain and anti-Saudi groups in the Gulf, are prominent examples.
Finally, trans-national terror groups either linked with or inspired by Al-Qaeda – from Philippines to Iraq – have inspired their cadres with radical Islam. While Osama bin Laden has been eliminated and Al-Qaeda may be in tatters, his legacy continues to motivate suicide bombers from Pakistan to the Gulf States. The challenge they pose is still not insignificant, and most difficult to counter.


A heady cocktail of these threats have made Asia the world’s fastest-growing Homeland Security market. And Securing Asia 2012, a unique initiative to be held in London from 25th to 27th June at the QE-II Centre, will not only showcase the technologies and training methodologies that Asian countries need, but will bring together, for the first time, the buyers and the suppliers under one roof, to equip Asian countries for their battles ahead.

National Security Strategy Emphasises Need for Coordinated Approach to Counter-Terrorism

Britain has published its National Security Strategy (NSS) which aims to inform thinking and drive policy over coming years.

The document categorises threats faced by the nation in tiers highlighting the level of severity, outlines actions to be taken to mitigate such threats and formed the background to the Strategic Defence Review (SDR).

High in rhetoric but offering little insight in terms of how its goals will be fulfilled against a backdrop of swinging cuts in both the Defence and Home Office budgets, the document does offer an interesting glimpse at what the present government considers are the priority concerns. Read more
