About this event

This conference will discuss the challenges associated with protecting the largest construction site in Europe that sees over 3,800 multinational and ethnically-diverse workers onsite every day, across hundreds of contracted organisations.

It outlines the benefits of a strong client/contractor partnership in the delivery of a risk-proportionate and cost-efficient integrated security service whilst also meeting the stringent regulatory and legal requirements associated with the civilian nuclear industry.

Also in the agenda, two case studies will share how HPC created its workforce's strong security culture and its proven methodology used to match the dynamic security systems within a construction environment. The afternoon session will compare these challenges to those on a large London-based construction project, with a second session aimed at demonstrating how insider threat needs more than safeguarding priority information.

All overnight guests are requested to declare their attendance at the SyI conference at the time of booking. We ask that you make a note on your ticket booking for this event if you have selected accommodation. We require prior knowledge of you accommodation arrangements at Hinkley Campus so that we can arrange for you to join the bus tour as it enters site.

Alternatively, you can drive to the Cannington P&R facility ready for a prompt get away at the end of the day (highly recommended). The preferred campus would be Sedgemoor which is a 10 to 15 minute drive to the Cannington Park & Ride.

Please ensure that you have photographic ID to present on your arrival, as Hinkley Point C is heavily regulated by the ONR and quite often has to turn people away. This ID must match prior details given at the time of booking. Please also ensure that you complete all questions asked during the booking process for this event. All details will be checked at the Cannington Park and Ride site.

Delegates that originate from countries outside of the UK and do not hold a UK passport/driver’s licence need to make this clear at the earliest opportunity.

VIP Delegates:

Can you please notify us at the time of booking if: you hold the title of Lord or Lady; you are a Member of Parliament; you are a member of the press, or a media partner of The Security Institute. 


There is no need for PPE as we will not enter an active construction area, although good walking shoes are required to climb the scaffold type steps up to the elevated viewing gallery (on top of a three story building). Wearing smart office attire is recommended.


There will be an official photographer, as well as a cartoonist to record the events of the day. Illustrations and photographs may be used for publication in the SyI monthly newsletter and other communications only.
