IFSEC International has announced the launch of a new show dedicated to border security, counter-terror and the protection of critical national infrastructure. Speaking at the launch event at London’s Guildhall, IFSEC brand director Gerry Dunphy outlined the vision for a new “show within a show” which will meet the need for Britain’s – and the World’s – response to the growing terror and security threat.
Borders & Infrastructure, which will take place between 20-22 June 2017 as part of IFSEC International and the wider Protection & Management Series, is supported by BSIA, ASIS, BRE Global and the Security Institute and will feature products, solutions and content aimed at central and local government, transport and utilities, sports stadia and events, logistics, border security and law enforcement.
Gerry Dunphy outlined the reasoning’s behind the to the IFSEC line-up: “The heightened terror threat, unprecedented migration levels and the growing cyber threat mean that demand is huge for a show like Borders & Infrastructure. Cyber security, counter-terror, border security and protecting critical infrastructure are near the top of the priorities’ list of governments in Europe and around the world.”
UBM Group Director Simon Mills said: “The strategic addition of Borders & Infrastructure to IFSEC is a historic moment in the 30-year-plus development of the IFSEC brand. It should be viewed as something very different to the show’s more traditional elements.”
