Event Overview

International conference and exhibition on safety and security

This forum-cum-specialized exhibition, now on its fifth year, is the country’s foremost assembly for business continuity and knowledge-sharing of safety and security concerns. PROTECT is held every year to give leaders and decision makers from government and business communities a venue for discussion and exchange of ideas and experiences to aid both sectors in dealing with security matters.

In the wake of the many natural disasters that hit the Asian region in 2009, this year’s PROTECT series to be held on April 15-16, 2010, devotes significant attention to Disaster Risk Reduction.

It has been recognized that risks arising from natural disasters such as super typhoons, floods, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and landslides are as destructive and could even be more disastrous than terrorist and man-made attacks. They should be managed as other threats arising from terrorism. They affect business, the economy and every human being.

PROTECT 2010 will bring together a pool of respected experts in the fields of disaster reduction and relief, protection of networks and critical sensitive physical assets, cyber security, business protection and continuity and general security. Focused sectoral break-out sessions are part of the conference.

This year's PROTECT Conference is focusing on different sectors and industries for which emerging challenges from natural and man-made disasters can significantly affect their business.

There will be break-out sessions for specific sectors:

Group A – Schools, Hospitals, Hotels, Malls, Offices, Factories, Property Developers, Tourist Resorts, Others.

Group B – Local government units (LGUs) and organizations responsible for safety of local communities.

Group C – Banks, BPOs, Casinos, Call Centers, Airline Offices, IT Companies, Insurance Companies, Pharmaceutical Companies, Stock exchanges/brokerages, Others.

Group D – Critical Infrastructures and Public Places – Public Utility companies (water, electricity, power), Telecoms, Bus terminals, Airports, Airlines, Mass transit trains and stations, Seaports, Shipping companies, Others.

Starting with an update on the latest issues on terrorism by international terrorism expert Rohan Gunaratna, PROTECT 2010 will devote significant attention to disaster risk reduction and management from both natural and man-made disasters.

The conference will also present the Philippine Disaster Management System. New technologies in security and safety will be introduced at PROTECT 2010, among which is SONY’s high-definition security system and IP-based video surveillance hybrid platform that integrates old and new systems effectively.
