Homeland Security Summit - Middle East
Advancing collective strategies to address shared national security concerns

27 May, 2013 - 29 May, 2013, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Event Rationale:

Is your organization adequately prepared and equipped to deal with the rapid and dynamic changes taking place in the regional security environment?

The shifting security landscape and newly emerging threats require the countries of the GCC and wider Middle East to formulate national security strategies and frameworks that share common approaches and address shared security concerns. As key security stakeholders continue to develop and implement these policies, security providers will be called upon to offer the most advanced technologies and integrated systems that mitigate the risk posed by threats to homeland stability and tranquility.

These challenges need to be met with unique and innovative solutions that ensure both the protection of critical national infrastructure and informational assets, maritime and port security, electronic identity and monitoring of non-state actors, border protection and security, cyber and information security, and ultimately the modernisation and integration of regional security forces.

The inaugural Homeland Security Summit - Middle East, to be held from 27-29 May in Abu Dhabi, is the region’s premiere event for ascertaining information about the latest trends in homeland security and the most advanced technologies for integrating capability across multiple agencies and directorates. Ensure your part in this strategic and pivotal event and gain access to a formidable gathering of key GCC security stakeholders and regional military commanders responsible for developing national security frameworks and enhancing homeland security capabilities.

Key themes:

  • Envisioning a collective strategic approach to emerging threats and shared security concerns
  • Assessing current capability gaps in existing homeland security infrastructure and implementing effective resilience measures to mitigate potential crises
  • Protecting critical national and informational infrastructure – with a  specific focus on energy and IT assets
  • Evaluating existing counter-terrorism policies and understanding new domain threats posed by regionally active militant organisations
  • Enhancing cyber defence and information security capabilities
  • Enforcing electronic identity and developing advanced border controls and perimeter protection
  • Ensuring the modernization and training of GCC security forces to respond to emergency situations
