                               ‘Influential Security’

          We are pleased to announce the theme and
          speaker line-up for this year’s Annual Conference,
          which will take place on October 28th. This
          year’s conference will centre around the theme
          of ‘Influential Security’, and will feature a wide
          variety of speakers that focus on the far-reaching

          concepts are used to influence behaviour. This
          includes crime prevention through environmental
          design and public awareness campaigns such as
          “see it, say it sorted”.

          However, our adversaries do the same, to
          radicalise and inspire violence. To create fear in a
          population and even using our media and social
          media to deliver deep fake, epistemic risks that
          influence populations to follow a path without

          security profession, and one of 200 Chartered
          Security Professionals.
