Global MSC Security has revealed that Tony Porter QPM LLB MSyI, the Surveillance Camera Commissioner for England and Wales, will offer a presentation entitled ‘Delivering the National Surveillance Camera Strategy’ at the 20th Global MSC Security Conference and Exhibition 2018, which is taking place at the Bristol Hotel in Bristol city centre on Tuesday 13 November.

The National Surveillance Camera Strategy for England and Wales was launched in March last year in a bid to develop an holistic approach towards raising standards and compliance, with the document duly outlining legal obligations in line with the 12 guiding principles of the Surveillance Camera Code of Practice. Porter will use his Keynote Address at conference to highlight the successes and challenges post-implementation.

In addition, Porter will also discuss what the future may hold for surveillance cameras, encompassing developments in the realms of facial recognition, CCTV, body-worn video, ANPR, vehicle-borne cameras and unmanned aerial vehicles. The Global MSC Security Conference and Exhibition 2018 also sees the launch of the Surveillance Camera Commissioner’s updated self-assessment tool, data protection impact assessment and passport to compliance.

Tony Porter was appointed Surveillance Camera Commissioner by the Home Secretary back in March 2014 with a remit to encourage compliance with the Surveillance Camera Code of Practice and review how the Code is working across a set timescale. He also provides advice to ministers on whether or not the Code needs amending, as well as advising and informing members of the public and system operators alike about the effective, appropriate, proportionate and transparent use of surveillance camera systems.

The Global MSC Security Conference and Exhibition 2018 – for which Risk Xtra is the Official Media Partner – is free-to-attend for all delegates who will also receive double Continuing Professional Development points from The Security Institute for attending the conference programme.
