Focusing on competency development, we bring together global workshops for the attendees to gain an effective learning experience which they can implement in their daily work.

Homeland Security Middle East will have four interactive workshops from the industry leaders across the globe:

Workshop 1


Can Your Crisis and Emergency Management Structures Cope with 21st Century Critical Infrastructure Protection Demands?

Presented by Geoffrey Williams, President & CEO - 3Ci Global Solutions

In the era of ‘Protecting and Securing Critical Assets,’ it’s never been more crucial to stay ahead of future trends and cost-effectively and efficiently manage the plethora of different crises and disasters that threaten corporate entities. Changing organisational ‘out-dated’ cultural management approaches to such critical issues is vital for 21st businesses, industry and organisations if they are to flourish during critical times. This workshop explains the vulnerability of current emergency management systems and demonstrates new cutting-edge methodologies. Delegates are tasked to ‘root cause analyse’ these threats and risks to their own businesses.

Workshop 2


Fire Protection Strategies for Critical Infrastructures Workshop

Presented by Paul Bryant, Director - Fire Cubed (Fire3 ) LLP

The fire safety and protection of critical infrastructure has never been more important. Major fires around the world have highlighted that a new and strategic approach to fire engineering may be warranted. Paul Bryant, author of British Standard Specification PAS 911 covering fire strategies, as well as his best-selling fire book “Fire strategies – strategic thinking” will explain his ideas. The workshop delegates will identify ‘best practices’ that explore the key considerations as covered in the British Standard. The workshop is designed for both risk, H&S, security and fire safety professionals, as well as those who have responsibilities for fire safety for complex buildings and other infrastructures.

Workshop 3


Business Continuity for Critical Infrastructure Protection

Presented by Steve Corrigan, Managing Director - C4 Resilience Consultancy & Training Service

The term Business Continuity has been wrongly associated with nothing other than IT continuity and recovery. This thought provoking workshop explains how applying standards such as ISO 22301 on its own is insufficient and needs a more comprehensive approach. Delegates will be enlightened as they learn to analyse the real meaning of ‘Business Continuity’ and the mass benefits it can bring to their enterprises

Workshop 4


Integrating Private Fire/Rescue/EMS Solutions in a Comprehensive Security and Protection Plan for Critical Infrastructures

Presented by Chris Dusa, Chief Business Development Officer and Matt Dusa, Chief Operating Officer – Capstone Fire & Safety Management

Producing a comprehensive security and protection plan for critical infrastructures creates many financial challenges. Providing security services that integrate within fire/rescue/emergency medical services within a cost-effective plan has never been more relevant in today’s financial restrictive times. How to best 'integrate' all the security needs into fire/rescue/ems needs often create conflicts of interests. This critical workshop helps delegates by analysing how these crucial services can overcome these conflicts of interest especially where private fire/rescue ems services are involved.
