International Port Security Conference

As the last line of defence, port security teams play a critical role in ensuring that the nation is protected from external harm. Therefore, it is essential for ports to boast the most stringent security measures possible, using the most up to date technology. With continued migration into the EU through sea borders and the serious threat of terrorism, there is a pressing need for the maritime security community to collaborate and further strengthen relations in order to boost security. Interacting with delegates from across the globe and hearing from industry leading experts will ensure delegates are up-to-date with high priority information that enables you to best secure your seaports, civilians and means of trade.

We are proud to announce the 7th annual International Port Security Conference. The event will be held in London on the 1st and 2nd of June 2016. The conference aims to bring together key decision makers in the industry to discuss modern methods of port security and provide effective learning experiences for all delegates through expert speakers carefully chosen through extensive research, and workshops magnifying the most topical issues.

Topics to be discussed in June include terrorism, cyber security, optimising technology use, regulation and case studies featuring some of the busiest ports from across the world. Our diverse range of topics will allow delegates to learn best practices for port security and understand further how other ports are resolving core challenges.
