Securex Talks

by msecadm4921

The annual Securex exhibition in London returns to Earls Court 2 from October 12 to 14 presenting a series of end-user talks on the security management profession.

Visitors are offered a programme of seminars on the latest management career options as well as an off the floor debate on the future of the security profession. According to the organisers visitor pre-registration for the event is up on this time last year and the shift in focus has drawn leading industry players. Panasonic recently confirmed its stand. Companies like Norbain, Forward Vision and Hunt Electronic are also taking part, showcasing their latest products.

What they say

Richard Clarke, event director, says: "With the number of visitors pre-registered to attend the event well up on last year Securex has convincingly reasserted its presence in the UK security event calendar.” Securex’s off the floor debate recognises that the end-user skills base is a key element of the provision of all security and one that is arguably under-resourced. Taking place on Wednesday morning, October 13, it will line up industry figures who will argue for and against the motion: Should security management continue to remain as a separate discipline? The discussion will focus on what the future holds for security management as a profession. The panel will include Chris Smith, director of security for EMEA at HSBC Bank and Mike Bluestone, principal consultant at Integra Security Solutions.

Career focus

Aimed at decision makers with recruitment responsibility or security professionals looking to their next step, the career seminar programme, Career Focus, presents the low-down on the best courses, diplomas, degrees and accreditation. It will also publicise initiatives and raise awareness on the importance of qualifications like ASIS International’s CPP, PSP and PCI, providing background and practical examples of the benefits. These seminars are sponsored by SSR Personnel. In best practice seminars, Ian Johnson, Chief Constable at The British Transport Police, considers how the industry can respond to the terrorist threat in his session "working in partnership with the security industry". He will also look at successful joint initiatives between the police and the private security industry and provide an overview of the Railway Safety Accreditation Scheme. Barry Faiers, Principle Security Surveyor at Allianz Cornhill Insurance, will highlight the changes in practice due to the new European Intruder Alarm Standards and how they are likely to effect installers, policyholders and insurers in his presentation "Risk and Remedy, an Insurance View of European Intruder Alarm Standards".
