Cityforum and London First are jointly hosting two half-day security Summits to coincide with, and add authoritative impetus to, the well-established London IFSEC Exhibition in June this year.
The agendas for the two morning Summits are designed to address threats and responses in a number of key areas with which the UK and others are now grappling. Perhaps more importantly, it is also designed to develop thinking and potential lines of action in response to the safety, security and resilience consequences of a number of developments that are at the heart of the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ that will have a massive impact on the nature of society in 2030.
The agendas will look, for example, at the brain – machine interface, at where AI will be a decade hence and at the revolution in quantum computing. They will assess the impact of big data on the way cities are run and look at how to keep citizens safe and prosperous, but also free to enjoy the open society of 2030.
Participation in the Summits and associated Masterclasses will provide an unusual opportunity to listen to and question leading figures from science, technology, law enforcement, intelligence and security, business, academia, the media, politics and administration.
Optimism over the future has declined in recent years as has trust and confidence in the way this and other countries are governed. The rankings of the various significant trust barometers are discouraging and could worsen. They could also improve if there is a determined effort to restore confidence.
These Summits assess how improvement may be effected to make life better for the citizen as an individual, whether in the community or on the move and how we can all make ourselves more resilient to shocks and stresses.
Both the Summits and the Masterclasses will provide scope for discussion of business opportunities and partnership agreements in the domestic and overseas contexts. These should interest delegates at the various events and exhibitors, we trust, will also find their commercial intelligences of value.
Attendance at the Summits also gives access to the main exhibition, and includes privileged seating at the associated Masterclasses.
