Speaker
Highlights

With the terrorist threat ever present, this
year's conference topics will focus extensively on approaches in combatting
extremism, radicalisation and transnational terrorism. Delegates can expect to
hear insightful speeches on topics like the future of the Islamic State in Iraq
and Syria (ISIS) and regional approaches
to the current terrorism landscape. Notable speakers addressing these issues are:

  • Professor Kumar Ramakrishna, Associate Professor & Head of
    Policy Studies and Head of National Security Studies Programme S. Rajaratnam
    School of International Studies, Singapore
  • Ali Soufan, Chairman & President, The Soufan Group,
    United States of America
  • Ahmad El-Muhammady, Counter-Terrorism Analyst, International
    Islamic University Malaysia
  • Roman Quaedvlieg, Former Head of the Australian Border
    Force Australia
  • Dr Firman Fadillah, Head of Counter Terrorism and
    Radicalism, Center for Terrorism and Radicalism Studies, Indonesia


In this evolving age, security
professionals must utilise the most effective technological innovations to help
them make informed decisions about pressing security issues. To fulfil this
need, the second day of this year's conference will be dedicated to discussing
the relevance of artificial intelligence and digital technologies to improve homeland
security, with some speaker highlights being:  

 

  • Michael Chertoff, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman, The
    Chertoff Group, United States of America Former Secretary, U.S. Department of

Exhibitor Highlights

Exhibitors
from 40 countries and regions will display a wide variety of security
technologies and innovations to meet the ever-changing needs and challenges that
security professionals in the Asia-Pacific region face. Notable exhibitors
include Avigilon, Norinco, Rafael, Rohde & Schwarz, Sig Sauer, Stelop
and many more.

 

With
terrorist attacks frequently occurring in vulnerable public spaces such as
airport terminal entrances, large events and even places of worship, it can be
challenging for security professionals to screen crowds without causing massive
disruptions. APSTEC Systems will
display their Human Security Radar at this year's exhibition -- a walkthrough
system that quickly scans multiple persons in real-time to identify items
concealed underneath clothes and in body-worn backpacks that may pose a severe
threat to the public's safety.

Beaqon will
display a handheld x-ray imager called the HBI-120. Developed by Viken
Detection (formerly Heuresis), the device uses backscatter x-ray technology and
can scan through different types of materials such as steel, aluminium, wood,
rubber, as well as many other materials. Currently a device being used by the
U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the HBI-120 proves to be a cost-effective
and fast turn-around time product to reveal concealed narcotics, bulk
explosives, currencies and other contraband items at immigration checkpoints.

TRD Singapore is
set to showcase the new generation of Drone Defeat Systems with their latest
anti-drone product, the Orion-T. Using an integrated system, this compact,
light-weight device is able to detect, classify and defeat drones that pose a
threat to safety. Weighing less than 3kg, the Orion-T also incorporates
spoofing capabilities to defeat enemy drones.
