Industry experts set to gather for National Business Crime Solution’s next Members’ Day

Daniel Hardy

The National Business Crime Solution (NBCS), a not-for-profit initiative that enables the sharing of data between law enforcement agencies and the business community in order to reduce crime, is continuing on from the inaugural success of its first Members’ Day in January with a second Members’ Day to be held on Wednesday 21 March.  The event will take place at the Trent Vineyard in central Nottingham.

The theme of the day is ‘Managing Current Business Crime Risks’. There will be presentations identifying current, emerging and potential future threats as well as some thought-provoking updates on techniques and projects that have proven to be valuable in the ongoing fight against business crime.

The forthcoming presentations will be given by leading industry experts from the NBCS, Asda, Athelney, Mitie, Maybo, Pyronix and major retailer Sainsbury’s.

Over 100 delegates from the world of business, security providers, technology providers and police business crime leads are expected to gather to hear about the latest trends and technology associated with reducing business crime.

During the day there will also be a Burglary Round Table. This follows on from an increase in burglaries being reported by several members of the NBCS. The aim of the round table is to address what’s happening, assess whether there are any particular ‘hot spots’ and/or commodities being specifically targeted and what mitigation strategies have been tried with a view to sharing Best Practice on what has/hasn’t worked and identifying gaps in the market.

Daniel Hardy, managing director at the NBCS, was delighted with the response to the first NBCS Members’ Day and is now relishing the upcoming event. “NBCS members comprise some of the UK’s largest companies and, as everyone’s time is precious these days, facilitating associate member suppliers and member end user conversations based on current business risks allows us to offer real value, promoting thought leadership while at the same time supporting preventative change opportunities,” explained Hardy in conversation with Risk UK.
