by Brian Sims

The Security Industry Authority (SIA) has announced four of the key speakers who’ll be making presentations at the Regulator’s Annual Stakeholder Conference, which this year takes place on Tuesday 14 March at London’s Hallam Conference Centre.

A direct reflection of the partnership working theme outlined for the day, the confirmed speakers emanate from the private security industry, academia, the police service and the NHS. Combined, these professionals bring a wealth of experience to bear on a range of issues affecting the private security industry.

The following four speakers are now confirmed:

Jayne King Chair of the National Association for Healthcare Security and head of security and site services at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust in London. King will present on the subject of developing standards for security provision in the healthcare environment.

Andrew Wootton Senior Research Fellow at the University of Salford and director of that institution’s Design Against Crime Solutions Centre. On the day, Wootton is scheduled to discuss design-led approaches to reducing crime and how the ProtectED scheme is increasing well-being in general.

Peter Webster CEO of Corps Security who writes regularly for Risk UK on the subject of the UK’s private security industry within the Opinion column entitled ‘Security’s VERTEX Voice’. Webster will offer conference delegates his considered and thought-provoking views on regulation and the Approved Contractor Scheme.

Ronnie Megaughin Chief Inspector at Police Scotland and deputy director of the Scottish Business Resilience Centre (SBRC). Megaughin is due to talk about the good work being conducted in Scotland between the SIA, the SBRC and other partners which is designed to reduce the risks posed by serious organised crime.

More information about additional speakers will be announced in due course.
