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 Homeland Security, United States of America
  • Fuji Foo, Vice President, Business Digitalisation, Certis Technology Singapore, Certis
  • Michel Cadic, Chief Scientist of France, Ministry of Interior of France

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.
