Introducing the SCTX 2019 Advisory Board

SCTX has become an essential platform for developing technological concepts and thought-provoking insights in the counter-terror landscape. In order to maintain such topical discussions, it is essential that we attract the most knowledgeable and influential thinkers of our industry – which we do through unique conferences, innovative technologies and topical discussions.

The SCTX advisers bring a wealth of experience and knowledge with them. They will contribute to guiding the conference content, providing commentary on pertinent topics and leading the discussions for 2019.
