Counter-terrorism and security standards set to lead agenda at Total Security Summit

Counter-terrorism, techniques for maintaining security standards and the importance of physical security will be among the key issues addressed at the Total Security Summit, which takes place on Monday 12 and Tuesday 13 March at the Radisson Blu Hotel adjacent to London’s Stansted Airport.

Run by Forum Events, the Total Security Summit – for which Risk UK is once again the Official Media Partner – is a highly focused event that brings security professionals together for one-to-one business meetings, interactive seminars and valuable networking opportunities. Over two days, delegates will meet with credible suppliers who’ll be able to talk through projects, concerns and obstacles, offering the best advice as well as cost-saving solutions.

The Total Security Summit is specifically tailored for senior professionals directly responsible for the security requirements of their organisation, and those manufacturers and developers who provide the latest products and services within the sector.

Among the confirmed seminar sessions are:

*’Counter-Terrorism: Top Tips for Business’: Chris Phillips (managing director, Ippso Ltd)

*’How Physical Security Adds True Value to the Modern Enterprise’: Ross Bale (security specialist, Nedap)

*’Maintaining Security Standards in an Evolving Threat Landscape’: Chris Fitzgerald (head of business resilience and security) and Jon Lorimer (security specialist, Thames Water)

Confirmed attending suppliers include Alternative Systems Protection, Frontier Pitts, Gallagher, Nedap, Northland Controls, ievo, HK Vision, Trackforce, Touchland Biometric Solutions, Tyco and Stratus Technologies.

Event manager Haydn Boxall said: “We know that time is a precious commodity for practising security and risk management professionals. It’s both a valuable and limited commodity. You tell us who you want to meet and we handle all of the details. The Total Security Summit is also a tremendous opportunity to learn new skills and network with your peers. We very much look forward to welcoming everyone on the day.”
