The theme for our Annual Conference is – The Domino Effect: Prepare, Protect and Analyse

This has been chosen to highlight the chain of events required to create a safe environment for individuals, communities, and businesses. Collaboration and coordination are fundamental to private, public and government sectors to ensure best practice is achieved in both Cyber and Physical Security. Other important considerations are the need for preparation, protection and the post incident analysis, so that improvements can be identified.

We are hosting our Annual Conference on Thursday 26th October 2023 at 1 Wimpole Street in central London. We can guarantee a full day itinerary that includes the attendance of industry experts from various backgrounds of security, who will be delivering topical conversations and debates.

We are honoured and proud that our Royal Patron, Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal has graciously agreed to attend this year.

Our confirmed guest speakers are:

  • Rob Kennedy CSyP FSyI is a Protective Security Consultant who works at the Protective Security Centre at the Home Office. He will discuss “Developing tomorrow’s security professionals and laying the foundations towards Security Convergence.”
  • Mike Croll MSyI is a Senior Lecturer in Security, Resilience, and Intelligence at Buckinghamshire New University will be discussing the topic: ““Crisis Communications Generations and Expectations.”
  • A speaker from the National Protective Security Authority will be discussing the topic: “Collaboration and coordination from a National Technical Authority point of view.”
  • Matthew Drew CSyP MSyI is the Group Security and Resilience Director at Tesco, will be discussing the topic: “Building business resilience in companies to support our communities during times of crisis.”
  • Pauline Cranmer who is Director of Clinical Education, will be discussing the topic: “Westminster Bridge – Reflections and Learning.”

We will be proudly supporting the charity ‘Tough Enough To Care.’

Stuart Bratt founded ‘Tough Enough To Care’ (TETC) in 2019 when he lost two friends to suicide within a few days of each other. Both friends were products of male dominated environments, where the culture to ‘man-up’ was ever present. Stuart is a rugby player and RAF veteran, who has served multiple overseas tours of Iraq and Afghanistan. He has seen first-hand the damage that these cultures and environments create and leave behind.

‘Tough Enough To Care’ are passionate about working within male dominated spaces to remove toxic masculinity and promote positive conversations around mental health. TETC offers online and peer support services, as well as free text services to anyone needing to talk. They also provide mental health and suicide prevention training to all types of organisations.

All staff (paid or voluntary) have first-hand experiences of their own on their mental health journey, and so they can provide support, respect and empathy when it is needed most. The money raised at the Annual Conference will be donated to this worthwhile cause.

We look forward to seeing you there!
