BRE Global/LPCB Attack Testing Zone set for expansion at IFSEC International 2018

Security is the biggest challenge the world is facing at present, with the need to safeguard people and property arguably now greater than at any point in the past. On that basis, end users need to know the products and solutions about which they’re making critical purchasing decisions are fit for purpose. With this in mind, IFSEC International’s organiser UBM EMEA will once again be partnering with the experts at BRE Global and the LPCB to host the 2018 event’s Attack Testing Zone.

Following the hugely successful introduction of this new demonstration zone in 2017, the Attack Testing Zone will be expanded and moved to a prominent position in the Borders and Infrastructure area of IFSEC International 2018, providing dramatic and energetic demonstrations of the capabilities of world class security solutions.

Expert technicians from BRE Global/LPCB will actively demonstrate the effectiveness of a range of physical security solutions. All of the products on display are LPCB Red Book approved and will have met the stringent conditions laid down by a range of UK and European standards. That being so, end users in attendance at London’s ExCeL next June will be watching ‘Best in Class’ products taken to task in real-time scenarios.

Richard Flint, technical and business development manager for physical security at BRE Global, explained to Risk UK: “BRE Global is delighted to once again partner with IFSEC International in order to continue with the Attack Testing Zone. We were hugely impressed with the volumes and quality of the visiting audience this year and, such was the level of interest generated, we made sure the IFSEC International team would both expand and relocate this area for 2018. It’s a unique opportunity for security professionals to see leading products being tested in real-time and showcases the impressive levels of security and protection these solutions can provide.’’

Gerry Dunphy, brand director for IFSEC International as well as the co-located FIREX International, stated: “The Attack Testing Zone was the star performer at IFSEC International 2017, with visiting customers standing four deep around the area just to try and obtain a view of what was going on. It’s clearly a major area of interest. We’re happy to follow Richard’s lead and have expanded and relocated the Attack Testing Zone to an A-list position within the Borders and Infrastructure area of IFSEC Internaional 2018. The Attack Testing Zone is a great example of where real-time demonstrations capture the imagination of the visiting audience. This adds to the whole IFSEC experience for our visitors.”

*IFSEC International 2018 will take place between Tuesday 19 and Thursday 21 June at London’s ExCeL. Co-located not just with FIREX International, but also the Safety & Health Expo and the Facilities Show, this blend of leading events provides security, safety and facilities professionals with an unrivalled opportunity to meet with suppliers, network with their peers and drive project agendas
