This year is our first ever Hybrid event, meaning that as well as being able to join us in person for the conference, we also have the option to join us from the comfort of your own home. For those of you joining us remotely, we will be bringing the conference to you, with your very own conference pack delivered directly to your door, as well as professional and dynamic streaming of our speakers on the day. Our speakers are still in the pipeline, but we can guarantee a full day line up of industry experts from various backgrounds of security, who will be delivering topical conversation and debate.

The theme of the Security Institute’s Annual Conference 2021 will be ‘Influential Security'

Influence is the conundrum in security. The ability to influence impacts almost every aspect of what a security professional aims to achieve. To deter is to influence. Leadership imparts influence to promote compliance, awareness, actions and reactions. Influencers can convince and coerce, inspire and improve the social circle around them. In security we use a variety of concepts to influence such as Crime prevention through environmental design, psychological campaign such as "see it, say it sorted". However, our adversaries do the same, to radicalise and inspire violence.

To create fear in a population and even using our media and social media to deliver deep fake, epistemic risks that influence populations to follow a path without question.
During this hybrid conference, we will explore aspects of influence that will develop a deeper understanding of how you may improve your influential abilities whilst considering how threat actors may be manipulating us.

First Speakers announced

We are please to announce our first speakers to join us for our 2021 Annual Conference. 

Compered by Brian Dillon CSyP FSyI a senior advisor in the government security profession, the first of our speakers for the day have been announced to circle around our theme of Influential Security.
These are:

Chris Smith MSc CSyP FSyI, Head of Security Resilience, WPP plc

Testing times - security leadership and influence
What does it take to do a job that feels like a cross between Dressage and the Modern Pentathlon; fancy footwork and stamina with a little resilience thrown in.

Elizabeth Seger, University of Cambridge, Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence

Epistemic Security: informed decision-making in democratic societies
In modern society people struggle to separate fact from fiction and to identify trustworthy information sources. This poses a substantial threat to a society’s epistemic security, a society’s ability to make well-informed decisions and coordinate collective action in response to a crisis.

Frank Cannon BSc (Hons) CPP PSP CSyP FSyI , HPC Site Security Manager, EDF Energy, Nuclear New Build, Hinkley Point C

Influencing the Workforce Through Security Awareness; a Practitioner’s Approach
A proven approach to workforce engagement in the development of a behavioural-based security culture. Sharing a methodology to influence by keeping the message relevantpersonal and important to the recipient. (30 words).

Professor Michael Mainelli MStJ FCCA FCSI(Hon) FBCS, Executive Chairman, Z/Yen Group

A Richer Approach To The Economics Of Security
Security professionals will get to the board room if they focus on three financial metrics – risk reduction, reward enhancement, and increased certainty.  Using risk/reward options, good security functions can value the increased certainty they provide.

Richard Gott, Network Founder and Chair, MemberWise Network

Amplifying Influence –Post-COVID-19 Era Fundamentals
How can individuals/organisations amplify the influence they hold within the Security Industry (and beyond?) and how can they increase effectiveness/participation? Never have we faced as many challenges in such a short space of time, so it is critical that we are stronger than the individual sum of our parts. If you are looking at maintaining resilience/effectiveness, this is a ‘must attend’ session.

Shivindra Pratap Singh MSyI, Managing Director, Lancers Risk Consulting

CAPSI – A Game Changer in Indian Private Security Industry
CAPSI’s journey since inception and its impact on the Indian Private Security Industry.

Dr Aoife Hunt & Simon Ancliffe
