NCT CBRNe Middle East 2016
The NCT CBRNe Middle East conference and exhibition
NCT CBRNe Middle East is an outstanding opportunity to meet leading international experts, regional decision-makers and first responders in the field of CBRNe defence and response. The conference will provide you with high-level speeches on regional CBRN challenges and threats, approaches and state-of-the-art equipment from CBRN detection to decontamination and recovery, as well as regional capability building and procurement projects. With traditionally high-level speakers from all over the region, NCT CBRNe Middle East is a conference not to be missed.
The CBRNe threat has been rising in the Middle East with the alleged use of chemical weapons (including chlorine, sarin, mustard gas and phosgene) in the conflicts in Syria and Iraq for the past three years. In addition, there are indications of a terrorist organisation developing its own chemical weapon production capability and threats to use these weapons in other regions. The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and the Joint Investigative Mission (JIM) are currently investigating the reported incidents and identifying the perpetrators. Collapsing health care systems due to the armed conflicts have increased the risk of outbreaks of infectious diseases. Refugee flows may transfer diseases to neighbouring countries and other regions. These developments underline the need for adaptive response mechanism, effective bio-surveillance systems, new vaccines and better treatment methods. The intensified air campaign by the international coalition against Daesh is causing environmental effects and creating long-term health effects for the civilian population. The use of advanced weaponry and prohibited weapons (including phosphorus sulphur, cluster bombs) is contributing to an increasing UXO problem and new health care problems.Visitor Demographic (Geographical Regions/Countries): Kuwait

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.
