Countering Drones Conference Set For December In London

Second Annual Conference Focuses On Keeping Up With Technology In An Industry In Perpetual Development

A year has passed since the inaugural Countering Drones conference. Policy developments have been few and far between and, in most cases, regulation has continued to prevent law enforcement and security professionals from engaging potential drone threats effectively. Compounding this, our sector surveys and ongoing research with the user community have highlighted that there is an asymmetry between existing knowledge of industry solutions, and the products that are actually being developed for market.

Government agencies still have plenty of work to do with regulators and industry to develop an effective counter drone framework and, as the drone threat continues to evolve and multiply, discussions must continue in an effort to stay ahead of malicious pilots. This December, we will continue to grow our audience of security professionals by welcoming stakeholders from more sectors- such as international and sporting event managers- who are determined to move ahead and acquire the best fitting solution for their needs, as soon as the go ahead is given.

It is now critical that governments work with regulators and industry to develop an effective counter drone framework, and correctly understanding the multitude of challenges that drones present is central to this. Sites of critical national infrastructure, prisons, airports, sporting venues and other stadia are at serious risk, constrained by embryonic regulation and undefined remits for threat engagement. This December, we will provide a unique platform where security professionals can share their challenges with governments, regulators and industry, to assist in developing a lens for threat assessment and a framework for progression.

It is in this context that the 2nd Countering Drones Global conference will be held December 12 - 14, 2017, London, U.K. Attendees to the conference can learn how to:

  • Effectively measure and prepare for the risk posed by drones by receiving exclusive security briefings from leading international experts
  • Make an informed assessment of different types of counter-drone technologies and identify which system is best for your unique circumstances
  • Influence future policy by contributing to high-level discussions with policymakers, insurers and legal practitioners
  • Ensure that your organisation is aware of current developments in national security strategy, regulations and aviation legislation by hearing from senior policymakers from the UK, Europe and US
  • Benefit from legal and insurance policy guidance to better protect your organization from drone-related incidents

Key questions to be addressed include:

  • How is drone and counter-drone technology developing and how might this impact the security of key industries?
  • How vulnerable is critical national infrastructure, in particular, to civilian drones? What are the current safeguards to protect against this and how can we measure this risk?
  • What kind of counter-drone solutions should commercial organizations employ, if any, and what might be the legal implications of their use?

Hear from industry experts on the latest counter-drone technological developments and how they plan to solve enduring challenges for government and commercial industry - from detection to disruption
What are the regulatory obstacles that stand in the way of the development and employment of different types of counter drone solutions? What measures are appropriate and in what contexts?
