Event Overview

Safeguarding The Maritime Economy And Countering Transnational Organized Crime Throughout The Hemisphere

CABSEC 16 is held with the support of the Colombian Navy with the purpose of countering transnational organised crime through enhanced maritime security and coastal surveillance. It is co-located with SAMSEC 16, South American Security summit offering additional opportunities for networking and information exchange throughout the hemisphere.

This established forum brings together ministers, chiefs of defence, service chiefs, law-enforcement officials, and diplomatic personnel to discuss security capacity building and structures of cooperation within the region and sub-regions.

The nexus between transnational organized crime and extremist organizations continues to pose a global threat and remains a critical risk for Caribbean and South American Nations; the impact of a terrorist incident would decimate the tourist economy throughout the region.

Shared challenges and CTOC/CN operations offer an opportunity for collaboration and security cooperation throughout the hemisphere.

National Security & Resilience Conference 2016

Organisational security and resilience in today’s climate of extreme threats

National Security and Resilience combines national security needs with an in-depth understanding of the design and implementation of resilience solutions. London sits at the epicentre of knowledge and resilience and is recognised globally as a centre of excellence, notably in national security and resilience.

The NS&R Conference will take place on 8th-9th November in the heart of London, bringing together a wealth of expertise which will entertain, inform and expand understanding. The leading conference programme is matched by its exceptional cast of speakers from across government and industry for one of the best programmes discussing organisational security and resilience.

The importance of organisational resilience

Global turbulence is expected. Competition, instability and uncertainty are constants in a changing world. Organisations face an unprecedented and growing number of potential disruptions to the status quo and the best laid strategic plans. As history repeats itself, prominent organisations will fail unless modern risk management and governance models incorporate scalable resilience metrics.

To survive and prosper in this new environment of heightened uncertainty and change, organisations must move past traditional risk and governance models and focus instead on resilience. Resilience applies at all levels: national, regional, organisational and corporate.

The NS&R Conference will deliver the latest issues and threats facing government departments/agencies, corporations and businesses, and thought provoking discussions on strategies and innovations to ensure you and your organisation meet these changing challenges., Copyright © Notting Hill Media Limited 2000 - 2016, all rights reserved.
