We have heard in previous webinars about the ways in which technology is playing a crucial role in transforming the ways security is delivered. Also, we have heard about ways in which technologies are being under used or deployed badly. It seems some technologies are being mis sold in that the ways they can help tackle Covid-19 are being overstated. How can you identify the wood from the trees in this area? In this webinar we look critically at how technologies are helping and hindering security in this pandemic.

  • What types of technologies (rather than specific brands/models) are making a difference and how?
  • What are we learning about the ways in which technologies are being used/misused?
  • In what ways are our understanding of the interaction between humans and technologies being enhanced?

Previous webinars have painted a mixed picture on relationships between the private security sector and the police. Corporate security teams and private security suppliers can often point to examples of good practices, but there are many that are not so good. In any event, it begs the question, what would the ideal partnership look like? In what ways can and does and should private security support different types of law enforcement? Should private security contribute to funding public policing? Are there any offence types or areas of activity that can best be left to private security? If not, why not? If so, what does this then say about the role of the police? Can private security ever be properly impartial? What difference has Covid-19 made?

  • What does the optimal relationship between the police and private security look like?
  • Can and should private security (corporate teams and suppliers) ever replace public law enforcement?
  • What needs to change, post Covid-19, to optimise the public benefits of collaboration?

Free Webinar: Navigating to the New Normal: Resilience During Covid-19 and Beyond

2 July | 16:00 - 17:00

Regulators have made it clear that operational resilience is as important as financial resilience. But now there are a host of new challenges as a result of Covid-19 that have refocused efforts on the importance of building resilient organisations. Financial services need to deliver the outcomes that customers expect in an uncertain world. This will mean resilient and adaptive services to customers as well as providing safe and productive work environments for their employees. This webinar, in partnership with PA Consulting, will discuss the new processes that organisations should adapt going forward. We believe resilience and adaptability are not alternative choices – navigating to your new reality will require you to be both.
