PROTECT 2019 - Business Resiliency: The Next Evolutionary Phase of Business Continuity
Leverage International will be holding PROTECT 2019, an International Conference and Exhibition on Security and Safety. Its theme is “Business Resiliency: The Next Evolutionary Phase of Business Continuity”. Now going on its 14th edition, PROTECT has proved to be an effective platform and a valuable source of business and information sharing between the security industry, the government and the private sector.
Organised in 2005 in partnership with the Anti-Terrorism Council, PROTECT was initially devoted to overcoming terrorist threats. Over the years, focus of the annual gathering expanded to cover other prevailing serious threats from global economic crisis, natural disasters, pandemics, cybercrimes and other physical threats that affect business.
For PROTECT 2019, strong focus will be on cyber security, resiliency for facing natural disasters, Internet of Things (IOT), information warfare, terrorism and CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radioactive and Nuclear).
Security and safety platform
PROTECT consists of a select exhibition, a business conference, technical presentations, new product demos and networking events. It is attended by decision makers and CEOs, senior officials of government agencies, security specialists and consultants, IT and cyber security professionals, strategic planners, risk managers, terrorism experts, construction managers, architects, systems integrators, operators of critical infrastructures, academics, and everyone concerned with security and safety.
PROTECT 2019 conference series on “Doing Business Amidst New Threats” will focus on Business Resiliency: The Next Evolutionary Phase of Business Continuity. It has 6 main sessions:
Session 1: The Evolving Security Landscape
Rising political, economic, social disturbances and disruptive shifts in technology are creating risks and instabilities which have direct impact on businesses around the world. This session will examine the evolving macro-level risk landscape and highlight the systemic threats that may disrupt businesses.
Session 2: Sectoral Break-out Sessions: Panel Discussions
There is a compelling need for organisations to strengthen their resilience against shocks and surprises that challenge their operations. This will be an opportunity to analyse each sector’s vulnerability, address the challenges and threats they face and apply ingenuity to drive management innovations for a more resilient organisation. Innovations both in responses and collaboration platforms have become most important tools for business to survive.
Session 3: Plenary session: Summary Presentations by Panel Session Facilitators
Session 4: Future Instability Challenges
This will cover topics on Critical Infrastructure Attack, Cyber Attacks, Governance Challenges, Pandemics and Natural/man-made disasters.
Session 5: Future Business Opportunities
Today’s business environment is characterised by rapid unpredictable changes. While some of these changes pose challenges and even threats to business, there are also business opportunities offered by some of them.
Session 6: Technology Presentations
Speed Meet Up Session
The agenda also includes a Speed Meet Up Session on the first day where each delegate gets to meet a representative from each of the government agencies concerned with security and safety. This will be followed by a Social Networking Cocktail with senior government officials and diplomats as special guests.
