Mike has held senior security appointments with the FCO, the EU, the UN and with Facebook. He has also worked in humanitarian mine clearance and was an Army Bomb Disposal Officer. Earlier this year he published “The Rise of Security: And Why We Always Want More” which explains how security became a $500bn global business.

Mike’s discussion topic – “Crisis Communications: Generations and Expectations ” will highlight the value of Crisis Communication, and how success may differ depending upon the generation it applies to and their expectations.

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.

Our Annual Conference will take place on Thursday 26th October 2023 at 1 Wimpole Street, which is located in the Westminster area of London.

We look forward to seeing you there!
