IFSEC International has announced the return of The Future of Security Theatre, created in collaboration with Tavcom Training, for the 2020 edition of the event. IFSEC International and Tavcom Training have enjoyed a long partnership that has made The Future of Security Theatre a mainstay at the event.
The Future of Security Theatre is specifically designed to educate visitors about the ever-changing security landscape, highlighting the latest technology and biggest ideas shaping the sector. Last year it hosted several Tavcom tutors, as well as the British Security Industry Association’s Steve Lampett, James Morris (a director of ASIS UK), Alison Wakefield (current chairman of The Security Institute) and BT security managers Ruth Sanders and Sodhi Dhillon.
Tavcom Training is one of the UK’s leading providers of technical security training courses, covering CCTV installation, design and maintenance, intruder alarm installation, access control, fire alarms, IP networking and electrotechnical work.
In 2020, The Future of Security Theatre will be sponsored for the first time by Texecom, the supplier of electronic security products and services and a regular exhibitor at IFSEC International.
Earlier this year, Texecom partnered with Tavcom Training to launch the Texecom Academy, a new technical training service helping security professionals adapt to their industry’s changing technological landscape. This new initiative makes Texecom the ideal sponsor for The Future of the Security Theatre.
Rapid changes in the security sector
Clym Brown, marketing director at Texecom, commented: “We’re delighted that security professionals visiting IFSEC will have the opportunity to learn and gain knowledge from The Future of Security Theatre. The Texecom Academy has been created to help them adapt to the rapid changes within our industry. The increasing uptake of value-added digital services requires security professionals to develop new skills, new tools and a new mindset to fully realise the potential that’s on offer.”
Kevin Matthew, director at Tavcom Training, added: “Tavcom Training is delighted to once again partner with IFSEC International 2020. As in the previous years, we will be working closely together to ensure that the Tavcom Training Future of Security Training Theatre will offer a great variety to all everyone attending this year’s show.”
Matthew continued: “Visitors attending will gain valuable knowledge across a wide range of subjects, from cyber security to new licensing laws surrounding drone usage, Artificial Intelligence and robotics. Other topics will include the integration of security products and providing all attendees with valuable information when dealing with the ‘nitty-gritty’ parts of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation.”
In conclusion, Matthew stated: “Delivered by security systems industry leaders, these free-to-attend sessions will provide visitors with the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and gain a better understanding of key security trends. Additionally, each lecture offers Continuing Professional Development points certified by the Certified Technical Security Professionals Register to all who attend.”
