This week witnessed the opening of the 2012 Global Security Summit, which ran at London’s Olympia on Wednesday 10 and Thursday 11 October.

Organised by UBM Live and Pro-Activ Publications, this new end user-focused event featured both an exhibition showcasing top quality security solutions and a bespoke education programme

All of the major topics were covered, among them security convergence, interoperability, smart technologies and law enforcement in the Capital

We also addressed key questions on subjects including the future of security management and procurement, and highlighted lessons learned from the Olympic Games

The Global Security Summit’s Advice Centre was staffed by experts from The Security Institute, ASIS, the BSIA and the FPA and specifically designed to offer unrivalled expert opinion and advice on the varied security challenges facing today’s end users. 

The Worshipful Company of Security Professionals supported the show, at which Security Industry Authority CEO Bill Butler updated attendees on the future of private sector regulation
