IFSEC International and FIREX International, the world’s largest security and fire exhibition’s organised by UBM Live, yesterday opened the doors to the security and fire industry for what is set to be a show stopping event taking place from 17th – 19th June at ExCeL London.
Adrian Leppard, Commissioner for City of London Police, opened IFSEC International and said: “The security industry is seeing rapid growth and it’s crucial for professional’s to have the technical knowledge to stay ahead of the curve. New technology also offers new business practises to enhance both the efficiency and effectiveness of services at a time when both the public and private sector are wrestling with cuts in spending. Unfortunately, advancements in technology also offer criminals new opportunities. It is important therefore through events such as IFSEC that the security industry can share learning and stay at the cutting edge of public protection. ”
