CTX 13 offers platform for industry practitioners to share best practice and lessons learned with end users
| 06 March 2013
London: In order for the counter terrorism and security industry to effectively combat the evolving security threat, it is essential to continuously apply lessons learned from past experiences in order to prevent errors or future attacks from taking place especially in light of the increasingly sophisticated attempts by potential terrorists.
Counter Terror Expo’s workshop programme will feature 30+ case studies as part of its established Access Control, CCTV & Surveillance, Perimeter Protection and Detection, Building and Facilities Protection, and Screening and Scanning streams. In addition, CTX 13 is launching its brand new Maritime & Security, Oil & Gas On/Offshore security and Integrated Security workshops to provide a platform for the industry to respond to the growing need for information sharing within those fields.
Lessons learned will of course be drawn from the London 2012 Olympics throughout the sessions as one of the key events from last year. As part of this, Zaun Ltd, Hardstaff Barriers and Highway Ease will host an exclusive panel session discussion on the planning, collaboration, product research and innovation applied in the lead up to the games from a perimeter protection standpoint.
Other case studies include “In the midst of a catastrophic event, how resilient are your communications?” by Emerald Technologies, emphasising the important of unified communications in the event of an emergency, “Advances in Mask Integrity Testing” by Air Techniques International discussing the traditional approaches to mask integrity testing and their effectiveness during operations and “Civil Unrest in Uncertain times” by Streit Group as part of CTX’s brand new Armoured Support Vehicle workshop sponsored by Streit Group to name a few.
Abloy UK will be sharing their insight and expertise in an exclusive case study “Door magnets vs Electric Locks” providing a comprehensive overview of EN179 standards compliance and an analysis of how both methods can heighten security to current and future projects
Leading companies including Cova Security Gates, ATG Access, Kaba Ltd, Trakka and AB Precision will discuss how their technological solutions have been designed to meet client requirements in a cost effective manner, identify the versatility and benefit of surface mounted product installation, detect all significant explosives, extend the use of traditional access control and withstand the harshest conditions and heavy traffic loads.
Axis Communications will provide visitors with an insight into how to select the right surveillance solution for the right scenario, taking into account lighting and how to maximise intelligence gathered from the operation.
Risk analysis is a key element of planning for counter terrorism operations and experts need the best possible tools. QinetiQ will be on hand to explain the use of risk analysis software in planning mitigation measures and how the output enables risk mitigation
