Top-level security conference coming to Abu Dhabi

The conference runs from April 1 to 3 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre and is in partnership with the Ministry of Interior.

ABU DHABI // Cyber crime, fire safety and emergency response times are just some of the topics to be examined at a high-level security conference.

The International Exhibition for Security and National Resilience brings together experts from around the globe and showcases the latest technology.

“The aim of the exhibition is to explore the development of a modern state and what happens during an emergency,” said Brig Gen Dr Obaid Al Ketbi, Deputy Commander General of Abu Dhabi Police and chairman of the organising committee.

Brig Gen Al Ketbi said even quicker emergency response times were vital and that was one of the goals he wanted to achieve after the exhibition. “The exhibition is coming with a new look. We will focus on the quality of the exhibitors and their products and services. We will also embrace decision makers to benefit from their expertise,” he said.

This year the exhibition has three sections – homeland security and national resilience, information security and critical infrastructure security. There will also be events and forums dedicated to fire and emergency issues in the Middle East, occupational safety and health and cyber crimes.

Maj Gen Rashid Al Matroushi, Acting Commander in Chief of Civil Defence, said the exhibition would provide opportunities to learn about different emergency techniques. He also said the exhibition offered an opportunity to show the UAE’s leadership in security services.

More than 400 exhibitors from 40 countries will outline their products in information security, national security and firefighting at the exhibition and at least 15,000 regional and local experts will share their knowledge.

The exhibition will be held in partnership with the Ministry of Interior and will take place from April 1 to 3 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
