Global MSC Security Conference and Exhibition 2018 announces Risk Xtra as Official Media Partner

Global MSC Security has announced that Risk Xtra will be the exclusive Official Media Partner for the Global MSC Security Conference and Exhibition 2018, which takes place on Tuesday 13 November at the Bristol Hotel in Bristol. The headline theme for the 13th Edition of this hugely popular annual free-to-attend event is ‘GDPR, Surveillance and Security’.

Derek Maltby, managing director of Global MSC Security, explained: “Risk Xtra is the ideal Media Partner for the Global MSC Security Conference and Exhibition 2018 as the print publication and website’s readers mirror our delegates. They are end users charged with managing and mitigating risks for organisations in the public and private sectors. Not only do they need to be aware of the changing threat landscape, but they also want to understand the latest technology available to help mitigate against it.”

Not only is the event free to attend for all delegates, but the Global MSC Security Conference and Exhibition also delivers double Continuing Professional Development points from The Security Institute for anyone who does attend the conference programme.
