We proudly present our 7th annual Border Security conference, taking place in Sofia, Bulgaria on the 26th-27th of February 2014

Border control is incredibly challenging particularly when a border runs for thousands of kilometres often through hard and varied terrain. With the added pressure of some borders running through hostile environments steps must be taken to ensure all hazards and any potential threat stays beyond the border and does not penetrate into a nation. Our Border Security Conference will highlight the key emerging efforts of international border control agencies.

Highlights Include:

  • Host nation address from Chief Commissioner Penov, Chief Directorate of Border Police, Bulgaria
  • Hear about the case study from Haiti covering cross border criminal activity, and irregular migration
  • Brazil’s strategy for protection of port security, and preparations for the upcoming Olympics and World Cup
  • Learn the new approaches of the Schengen border security evaluation mechanisms
  • Discuss the 21st Century Challenges of Border security for developing countries
