Featuring key speakers from European sectors such as manufacturing, systems integration and civic authorities, the conference will probe how the rapid global advance of smart cities and the increased use of integrated platforms create a greater need to for safer and secure environments.
‘Smart Cities: Safer & Secure’ will bring together a range of experts from across the sector to impart their unique insight on how the concept of smart cities is being underpinned by large scale and sophisticated networked technologies.
The strategic half day event aimed at professionals in the emergency services, national and local government along with those working on critical national infrastructure, amongst others will offer a great opportunity to further explore how to increase the safety and security across Europe and beyond.
In addition to the conference IFSEC International will also host an interactive webinar on the same theme in the run up to the event. Taking place in April the ‘Smart Cities: Safer & Secure’ webinar will explore similar topics with a host of case studies that will showcase successful adoptions of integrated networked security and fire systems.
Participants will also benefit from the webinar format by being able to pose questions to as well as challenge the expert panel hosting the event.
