IFSEC’s evolution

by Mark Rowe

IFSEC International is here to innovate, inspire and transform professionals, products and places.

The global security landscape has shifted. The year 2017 saw attacks take on new shapes, become more insidious and more intrusive. In order to keep pace with these ever-evolving threats, IFSEC is evolving too – with a change directed by you.

The year 2018 marks the beginning of IFSEC’s evolution, with three carefully curated days from June 18 to 21 designed to give you the answers to the security questions keeping you up at night.

IFSEC’s seminar programme is a testament to this. New to 2018 and with City Forum and London First, the IFSEC Keynote Arena will welcome leading security strategists from government, academia and industry to drive and reflect on topics around ‘Securing The Open Society of 2030’. By taking a pivotal role in thought leadership and attracting a world-class calibre of speakers, this feature sets a new standard for security events around the world.

This is an exclusive opportunity to hear Michael Chertoff, Co-founder and Executive Chairman of The Chertoff Group, discuss 2030 forecasts of emergent threats to national security. You’ll hear Dr Pippa Malmgren, Founder of DRPM Group and former Special Assistant to the President of the United States, George W Bush, share how everyday signs can help us navigate a turbulent world.

Silvino Schlickmann, Director of Cyber Crime at INTERPOL, will also join to talk about the changing face of cyber criminality. The brand new Keynote Arena will also connect you to inspirational global learnings from industry pioneers, including Christian Horner, Team Principal of Aston Martin Red Bull Racing and Frank Gardner, the only British journalist permanently assigned to cover the ‘War on Terror’ as they tackle today’s biggest security questions across CCTV, cyber criminality and emerging threats.

Also new to 2018, the Converged Security Centre, brought to you by Vidsys, which complements the show’s focus on the convergence between physical security and IT, striving to help you understand your role as an installer, integrator and end user. Powered by the architects of Converged Security and Information Management, this will feature a range of simulations and case studies detailing the capabilities of a fully converged security system.

The show will also feature The Future of Security Training Theatre, powered by Tavcom, sponsored by Panasonic UK, the Drone Zone, the BRE Global/LPCB Attack Testing Zone and the adrenaline-packed finals of the Engineers of Tomorrow competition.

Whatever your role in the security industry, IFSEC is for you. Discover the possibilities for your business and gain a valuable understanding of the latest technology, whilst talking to the experts and learning skills you can implement and benefit from immediately.
