Conference information:

As a major entry point to the country, seaports are targets for potential unauthorized access, sabotage activities, terrorist threats, piracy, cargo theft and smuggling. It is vital that ports are given critical infrastructure and utilize implement-proven port security and surveillance strategies and technologies.

The Florida Ports Security and Technology Conference, taking place September 12-13 in Orlando, Florida, will provide an exclusive platform for major seaport security operators and world-renowned solution providers to come together and explore ways to harness and optimize protection systems. The conference will delve into challenges within port security operations and offer a fresh overview of issues faced in today’s technology-driven security solutions.

Intensive workshops will cover overcoming challenges such as illegal entry, terrorism, human trafficking, weapon smuggling and cyber security threats on seaports, as well as the effect of these activities on global port performance.

In addition to workshops business development and networking opportunities will be available with decision makers and industry leaders within the global port security industry.
