UK – WORLDWIDE – This month sees the 11th year of Transport Security Expo, an event comprising an extensive conference and workshop programme, supported by one of the largest dedicated technology exhibitions held internationally each year, and aimed specifically at security throughout the supply chain. The event, designed for the protection of both passengers and freight, is to be held on 13-14 November at London Olympia, and brings together the world's leading experts from government, military, law enforcement and security services to interact with the aviation, maritime and public transport industries, assess threat levels, and explore solutions.

This year’s opening plenary session will see speakers from the Department for Transport (DfT), the Cabinet Office, the European Commission and the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) take to the stage to debate the major threats facing the transport industry today. Speakers include Lucy Chadwick, Director General, International, Security and Environment at the DfT, Rhys Bowen, Deputy Director, Office of Cyber Security & Information Assurance (OCSIA) at the Cabinet Office, Robert Missen, Head of Unit, Land and Maritime Security, Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport at the European Commission plus a Director at the CPNI and Dr Dave Sloggett, an author and independent academic.

With its list of super heavyweight conference partners and a comprehensive set of exhibitors to protect against any threat the event is well worth a visit for anyone with security concerns but entry can only be obtained by accredited visitors. To register as a visitor click HERE.
