11:25 Security Regulations Debate: Achievements And Goals
This panel will explore how one country in the region - the UAE - has created and implemented a security regulation precedent with the advent of Federal Law 37, October 2006. These standards are gaining recognition; but what are the key learning points for other governments or private companies?
How can the professionalism maintained in the industry be created elsewhere? Where are future challenges coming from and how are the risks being mitigated by authorities now? Examine the cutting-edge issues with government representatives, private companies and consultants on this panel, harnessing first hand experience of this process and the regulations as they have evolved and been implemented.

13:30-17:30 Workshop B: A Fresh Approach To Private Security Industry Regulation
Executive Summary: This successful session is back by demand to provide insights that developers in the region should not operate without. Explore lessons the world can apply from the UAE’s experience of regulating the use of private security services.
Detailed Briefing: What can the region learn from the UAE model of regulation of the private security industry? This session will present experiences related to the benefits of implementation of effective security regulation in the UAE from a government and business perspective. By establishing the first model of security regulation in the region, the UAE has established service levels to increase public safety on the ground, and has potentially opened the door for more co-operation between GCC states in the private security field.
How you will benefit:
• Inform your policy and procedure development and keep one step ahead of these critical movements
• Devise the contingencies you need to implement to deal with the changing environment
• Prepare and equip your department to save time and react proactively
