The Total Security Summit runs at the Whittlebury Hall Hotel in Northamptonshire on Monday 19 October and Tuesday 20 October. Organiser Forum Events has now detailed the dynamic seminar programme which features a range of speakers and extremely valuable content aimed at today’s practising security professionals.

Are you investing in security technologies and, if so, have you thought about how those systems may be able to deliver more benefits to your organisation over and above their requirement to simply meet its security needs?

In today’s world of burgeoning information, where technologies are converging all the time, they’re able to make significant contributions to the data and information an organisation has at its disposal in order to improve decision-making, organisational performance and controls. Understanding how this could impact on your organisation is becoming ever more critical for success.

Security technologies have often been considered in silos with a single functional application, but they’re now gathering so much more useful information that has relevance to many other areas of an organisation’s activities that they should be considered not just as security systems, but also as organisational information systems and general business enablers.

Would you like to know more about how you could very easily adopt this wider approach to thinking about security technologies and hear about real world examples of where this has already been done in terms of creating additional value for the host business? If so, you need to attend the Total Security Summit.

Looking to create value

Organised by Forum Events, the Total Security Summit takes place at the Whittlebury Hall Hotel in Northamptonshire on Monday 19 October and Tuesday 20 October.

Across its two days, the Total Security Summit brings together security professionals and key industry solution providers to discuss the very latest technologies and innovations in the marketplace by way of focused face-to-face meetings and networking opportunities.

The event is specifically organised for senior managers and directors who are directly responsible for their facilities’ security and Health & Safety remits and who are looking to meet with new business contacts such that they can form teams for their upcoming security projects.

This year’s event features an excellent line-up of speakers. The subject of value creation mentioned previously will be assessed by the first presenter at the Total Security Summit, namely Chris Worrall (design and BID director, Atec Security). Further subjects and speakers include:
