CIVSEC 2020 will be a comprehensive congress of international conferences, seminars and symposia organised and hosted by distinguished thought-leaders in the civil security domain.

These forums will be presented by government and non-government organisations, strategic think-tanks, industry, research bodies and academic institutions from Australia, the Indo-Asia-Pacific region and around the world.

Delegates will include senior government and NGO officials, policy-makers, professionals, practitioners and specialists in fields ranging from policing and border security to humanitarian relief and emergency services, from search and rescue through to ship and aircraft operations, from criminal intelligence to biometric technology and counter-terrorism.

The program will address the core topics of border protection, disaster relief, civil and community safety, cyber security, organised crime and the smuggling of people and contraband goods, the increasing importance of bio-security, and the vital importance of multi-agency and multi-national liaison and cooperation.
