The Conference

Security and Management are two key elements for the successful development and progression of any leading business. Effective security management, personnel and systems must integrate and support the business in order to secure key assets, rather than restrict its operation. As quickly as companies develop, so too do the risks and threats that they face. These risks and threats can primarily stem from internal sources such as, Personnel and Information Technology/Systems or external sources such as environmental disasters or terrorism. Some of these threats, security management can directly control, others it cannot. Successful security management will ensure that the company assets have been identified, evaluated for risk, and appropriate safeguards implemented to address the identified threats, such as Crisis Management Planning and Business Continuity Plans.

Risk Analysis and Security Surveys are essential tools for security and management professionals. Objective ways of identifying and quantifying risk on a strategic, management or operational level is a persuasive tool to gain senior executive support. This course will identify and provide the delegates with the leading practices for risk assessment and quantification, key asset identification, vulnerability assessment and how to document appropriate safeguards in relevant plans, to mitigate risk and liability.

Leading companies can no longer view their security departments and employees as lower tier functions. In order to ensure departments function effectively within the realm of the larger corporate objectives, it is essential that our security professionals and executives can manage and lead their teams to achieve effective security plans and programmes that can be implemented successfully.

In order to achieve a consistent level of best practice the security professional needs to understand the needs of his industry, his team and his security projects.

The seminar is structured to equip delegates with the specialist security knowledge to perform their management and supervisory duties to international standards in both security planning and asset protection.
