The CIVSEC Conference Program provides the platform for government, industry and academia throughout the region to share knowledge and experience relating the security of nations and national infrastructure. Led by renowned Australian subject matter experts, the conference program draws speakers from around the world, providing balanced perspectives to complex regional issues.
The CIVSEC Conference program is structured to showcase exceptional thought leadership in the areas of civil security including law enforcement, cyber security, counter-terrorism, border protection, disaster management, humanitarian response, social media, major event security and critical infrastructure.
CIVSEC 2018 will be presented as a three-day event and will be led by the CIVSEC 2018 Congress, which will run across all three days and will consist of the following six streams:
The CIVSEC 2018 Congress conference program will be split into three quite distinct daily offerings to help delegates determine which day or days best suit their interests and needs.
Day one will be focus on Cyber Security, Social Media, and Critical Infrastructure. It will include a panel discussion and individual presentation sessions on each of the above streams.
Day two is presented as a strategic day. It will involve panel dialogues with a variety of international and local speakers that focuses thinking on the big challenges that civil security policy-makers, decision-makers, and practitioners need to be aware of and adapting to as we move beyond 2020.
Day three will shift back to conference mode and include the three streams of Human Security, Major Event Security, and Natural Disaster Management and Response. It will include panel discussion and individual presentation sessions on each of the above streams.
The sessions within these streams are deliberately structured to avoid ‘back-to back’ situations, thus allowing delegates to move across streams if they wish, while also enabling them ample time to visit the industry exposition and associated conference program taking place in conjunction with CIVSEC 2018.
CIVSEC 2018 will also host in parallel with the exhibition and the congress an associated conference program including:
