Tavcom Training unveils IFSEC International Education Programme for Future of Security Theatre

Tavcom Training – part of the Linx International Group – has revealed details of the 24 free-to-attend and Continuing Professional Development-accredited education sessions to be presented at the Future of Security Theatre (Stand IF3140 ) during this year’s IFSEC International, which runs from 18-20 June at London’s ExCeL.

IFSEC International’s official training partner, Tavcom Training has compiled an education programme that addresses many of the most talked about trends and issues among security practitioners. Topics being presented by Tavcom Training’s expert tutors include how to counteract the menace of cyber crime, the impact of Artificial Intelligence on electronic security, future-proofing CCTV networks and improving security through integration.

Sessions will also be dedicated to the threat of drone attacks and available countermeasures, the ‘hackability’ of autonomous vehicles and whether the security sector is ready for 5G as mobile operators begin switching on UK networks this year.

Also, with issues regarding the use of facial recognition currently hitting the headlines and a year on from the introduction of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, the challenge of running effective video surveillance that balances privacy and security will be debated.

The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) will also join Tavcom Training to provide cyber security Best Practice guidance, while the Security Systems and Alarms Inspection Board (SSAIB) will deliver an intruder alarm standards update involving PD6662.

Tavcom Training’s head of sales Andrew Saywell commented: “This year, we’ve put together a packed programme of the most pertinent topics delivered by world-leading subject matter experts. Over the three days of the show, we’re offering security practitioners an unmissable opportunity to learn about how they can best address the issues affecting them today, while at the same time readying them for what lies ahead.”

The Future of Security Theatre will open at 10.45 am on each day of IFSEC International with an introduction to the Certified Technical Security Professionals’ (CTSP) Register, which is operated by Tavcom Training and supported by the BSIA and SSAIB. The CTSP is a publicly searchable online Register of those fulfilling technical roles including installation, maintenance and commissioning technicians/engineers, auditors and consultants. It’s an important initiative that’s helping to raise standards throughout the sector.
