London, United Kingdom, March 08, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Major sea port security operators alongside world leading solution providers will meet at SMi Group's 8th Annual Port Security conference taking place on the 19th and 20th June 2017 to discuss solutions to the most important security challenges faced at major container ports.
As sea ports remain the most viable access point for international trade. Billions of tonnes of cargo and millions of passengers traverse the oceans each year with over 90% of trade moving through the major ports and sea lanes.
In order to ensure the safety and security of that vital economic blood line, individual ports are responsible for the protection of cargo, people and property. However, the often large sizes of ports and the proliferation of potential threats means that this cannot be achieved with guards and fences alone.
To reduce costs, save vital manpower and overall enhance security measures, technology is key; smart access points, integrated surveillance and tracking networks, computer systems and collaborative training and preparedness allow port authorities and port facility managers to properly defend and manage the sea ports and their importance to global trade.
Notable presenters include BIMCO, Belfast Harbour Police, City University London, International Maritime Organisation, London Gateway, Malta Transport Authority , Marine Risk Management, MAROPS, Metropolitan Police Service, Milford Haven Port Authority, Port Authority of Vigo, Port Of Long Beach, Port of Rotterdam, Port of Santos - Santos Brasil, Salamanca Group, Transport for London, University Of Warwick.
The 8th annual event will also feature an all new exclusive half day post conference workshop on “A Devil’s Advocate Approach to Port Security” hosted by Captain John Dalby, CEO, Marine Risk Management/Globalert Africa, taking place on the 21st June, 2017.
The 2-day programme will provide a complete focus on security technology and its importance to the preservation of life and property in ports and at sea as well as enable you to explore the most important topics to date such as cyber resilience, security automation and counter-terrorism.
For those looking to attend, there is £300 early bird offer available online ending on 31st March 2017.
