The Challenge
The safety and security industry is booming throughout the Middle East. As the region deals with pressing national security concerns and the ever present threats of a terrorist attack. Countering such threats is a task that requires complete interoperability amongst government departments as well as extensive coordination with industry and the private sector, as well as international co-operation. Government pressures to introduce the latest cutting-edge safety and security measures are constantly growing and security products have increased substantially in recent year.

This conference will cover key aspects of:

How Ministries and other government agencies collaborate to enforce national security interests
The emphasis on having a coordinated, connected and fast-acting mechanism to ensure efficient and effective response to natural security threats, disasters and other emergencies
The Solution
The private sector has a vast array of technology solutions to offer your organization (integrated border control systems, biometrics, small arms, blast protection, surveillance technology, E security, sensors, scanners and radars amongst others). However states continue to facing regional security problems and we have identified why:

Large number of available solution provider and vendors makes it difficult to choose reliable partners
Legal issues are very complex
There is a resistance to change at strategic levels
The challenge to network existing systems and organizations is very great.
There is a lack of interoperability between states and the private sector
