Open to registered accredited attendees
Presented by Industry Defence and Security Limited, the Strategic Security Summit provides a "big issues" platform for government, industry and academia throughout the region to share knowledge and expertise relating to the global and regional security of nations, cities, communities, resources and infrastructure.
Held on day 2 (Wednesday) of the three-day CIVSEC 2018 Congress to maximise the flexibility of attendance options for participants in CIVSEC 2018, the Strategic Security Summit is the pinnacle policy and thought-leadership forum at the CIVSEC 2018 Congress.
As the "big issues" conference in the CIVSEC 2018 Congress program, the Strategic Security Summit provides an opportunity to hear the views of eminent panelists on the challenges facing civil security practitioners, policy-makers and decision-makers both globally and regionally.
The Strategic Security Summit will commence with a Global Plenary featuring a keynote address followed by a panel of leading security strategists who will present their thoughts on the global challenges which will be faced in the period 2020 and beyond.
The strategic issues day will commence with an international panel session hosted by the Australian Government’s National Security Science and Technology Centre. The panel will consist of international interlocutors from allied nations presenting on the challenges the national security sector faces and how the nations can better work together to ensure our front line agencies have access to the best technology to respond.
Following the global break-out sessions, a Regional Plenary will feature a second expert panel presenting on regional (and Australian) civil security issues and the challenges for the period 2020 and beyond.
Both panels will deliver a balance of academic, public and private sector views in a discussion and dialogue – informed by questions from the moderator and audience.
The Strategic Security Summit will conclude with a "strategic summary" presentation from the panel moderator, drawing together the "threads and themes" covered during both the global and regional discussions in the 'big issues' conference of the CIVSEC 2018 Congress.
Free of charge to attend, the Strategic Security Summit is open to accredited registered professional visitors to CIVSEC 2018. (Places are limited and pre-registration is recommended with pre-registration being available from February 2018.)
