What Your Peers Say about SCTX

DCLG Resilience & Emergencies Division Dept for Comms & Local Govt – Sajid Younis, Resilience Advise

The cyber threat intelligence sessions have all been extremely interesting. It’s a huge tier 1 threat to our society right now and it’s been great to hear from so many high-profile speakers in the field. The huge variety of conferences are always a huge draw to the show and the exhibition itself never disappoints.

Norwegian Defence Estate Agency – Martine Vold

The show is a brilliant platform to gain insights into what’s going on in the field across multiple sectors. The wide variety of conferences on offer has kept me busy for the entirety of the show and it’s great to see so many new innovations coming through on the exhibition floor. The World Counter Terror Congress has provided some great insights into security measures that should be taken to maintain control of crowded places.

Head of Security at the O2, London – Anon

It has been very interesting to see so many industry leading speakers under one roof. Security in crowded places is particularly topical currently and the WCT congress has been great to gain exclusive access to the latest measures other high profile attractions are taking. It’s been great to network and see so many new and innovative security solutions coming through the market.

It's an honour to be a first recipient of what we are sure will be highly contested awards in years to come.
