In our increasingly disrupted world, what structures do we need for our economy and society to thrive? How will those structures need to adjust to the pressing demands of modern threats? The evolving use of online platforms, climate change disruptions, and supply-chain pressures are a few examples of complex and interconnected issues that challenge the stability of global structures. Now, more than ever, multi-lens, contemporary and innovative approaches toward meaningful solutions are needed.
The theme for this year’s Protective Security in Government (PSG) 2022 conference is Security: Past, Present, & Future.
Conference delegates and speakers will have the opportunity to discuss security and risk management lessons from our past and explore how to apply those lessons to our current and future social and political environments.
PSG 2022 brings together speakers with a wealth of expertise and experience across a range of areas important to public sector security and governance, focusing on key areas including digital/cyber, information, personnel and physical security.
In the challenging times ahead, we need the tools, skills, knowledge and fortitude of experts and organisational leaders to innovate and thrive, not only as individuals but as businesses, public sector entities and as representatives of the people. Our audience will hear from these experts on their observations of current trends, priorities for individuals managing organisational risk and recommended actions for government and private sector organisations.
