October 19th - October 23rd

SyI Virtual Ten/Three Conference Week

We are back again for our premier CPD event not only will we be extending our Annual Conference across an entire week, with industry thought leaders from all over the world tuning in to present, but we will also be running a virtual week-long exhibition, and a virtual charity auction – which is where you can get involved.

Conference presentations will be delivered at 10am and 3pm (BST) daily. That’s why we are calling it a 10-3 conference! The exhibitors will be live in the exhibition hall all week from 9am each day, so you can peruse while you wait for the presentation to start and after they conclude.

And it is completely free to attend for all!


The Science of Security

Science sits behind the majority of our Security Practices and capabilities. Some are obvious and some less so. The Security Institute Annual Conference 2020 will explore some of the benefits science brings to our ability to protect, influence and develop as security professionals.

Speakers will present on topics that will consider the importance of Science in all aspects of security, through:

  • Engineering
  • Psychology
  • Technology
  • The Human factors
  • The impacts of connectivity via the Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Forensic sciences
  • Impact of space exploration

Along with a range of other fascinating topics, all of which fantastic learning opportunities about future threats and mitigating theories that will enhance your knowledge and hopefully make you think harder and research further.

This year we will also be hosting an online charity auction from 16th to 23rd October hoping to raise money for the Security Benevolent Fund who have assisted so many struggling security personnel during the pandemic. With prizes from holidays to memorabilia, paintballing to fine dining at venues all over the UK and abroad, we are sure there will be something you would enjoy winning whilst helping us build on the fund that continues to be available to all of you, should you ever need it.

Details of speakers will follow as timeslots are confirmed. Watch them all or watch only one, it’s up to you.

A great way to earn formal CPD points!
