Tavcom presents ‘The Future of Security Training’ Theatre at IFSEC International 2018

Tavcom Training, part of the Linx International Group, is delivering the free educational programme for ‘The Future of Security Training’ Theatre at IFSEC International 2018 alongside sponsor Panasonic UK. The dedicated education theatre will deliver a range of essential Continuing Professional Development-accredited presentations on cutting-edge subjects vital for today’s technical security professionals.

Known for over ten years as the ‘Tavcom Training Theatre’, this year show organiser UBM has re-branded the theatre in the wake of extensive research in order to meet with the theme for the event. ‘The Future of Security Training’ Theatre will be a major element in the new ‘Show Me How’ project at IFSEC International 2018, which will identify educational opportunities whereby visitors can learn about industry Best Practice and capabilities.

Tavcom Training’s executive director Paul Tennent commented: “We have a long-standing and proud tradition of delivering free education at IFSEC International, which expects to see over 40,000 visitors this year and has been at the heart of the security market for more than four decades. This year’s schedule promises something for everyone, including cyber security and integrated networks, audio systems, countering drone threats and the ever-increasing links between physical and cyber security.”

During the three days of the show, which runs from 19-21 June, Tavcom will deliver a wide range of free educational sessions supported by specialist speakers from across the security industry, including the following:

IFSEC International is also the perfect opportunity to learn more about the Register for Certified Technical Security Professionals (CTSP), which has been endorsed by the British Security Industry Association here in the UK as well as internationally by Dubai’s Security Industry Regulatory Agency. It represents the only opportunity for individuals fulfilling technical roles in the electronic security and fire systems sectors to be officially recognised for their competencies and qualifications on a public register.

Paul Tennent concluded: “IFSEC International will once again deliver on its promise to educate and enlighten visitors. Myself and the team at Linx International Group look forward to seeing the readers of Risk Xtra at ExCeL.”
