Transec is due to take place at the Olympia, London on December 2-3, 2015, and will welcome over 4,500 international security professionals, 150 leading brand name global exhibitors and 100 expert international speakers on security.
Delegates will be able to pick up the latest copy of PTI’s Technical Journal – The Mega-Terminals Edition, which will be placed on seats in conference halls during maritime security conferences, as well as at media points and exhibitor-stands.
Now in its 13th edition, Transec brings government, industry and academics together to counter the security threats against transportation networks.
Security is a global issue, with an increased number of terrorist threats covered by PTI in recent news, including the Panama Canal, which raised its security alarm following the recent attacks in Paris.
The Suez Canal has also been at threat after 13 members of the Muslim Brotherhood were arrested on suspicion of planting bombs along the canal.
These events highlight the importance of protecting our global transport networks from terrorist attacks, and is a key topic which will be covered by Sebastian Villyn, Maritime Security Analyst at Control Risks.
Keynote speeches will be delivered by a number of maritime security professionals, including Christian Dupont, Deputy Head of Unit Land and Maritime Security, Directorate-General for Mobility & Transport at the European Commission, Giles Noakes, Chief Maritime Security Officer at BIMCO, and Martin Clark, Head of Security at Associated British Ports (ABP).
The topics to be discussed at the event include advanced security risk analysis approaches, piracy, the nature of maritime security crime and the enduring impact of terrorism.
Peter Retter, CEO and Commissioner at the Australian National Transport Commission, said: “Transec provides a unique opportunity to bring many exhibitors together with people who are involved in the security business, whether aviation, maritime, rail or land transport security.”
PTI previously reported on a Q&A by Martin Clark of ABP, where he discussed the issues regarding port security and the opportunities that Transec could bring to the industry.
He is due to give a presentation at this year’s event entitled ‘The Security Conundrum for Every Port – Balancing Security Compliance and Facilitation’.
