The recession has clearly taken its toll, not only directly by impacting finances, but indirectly by influencing unemployment and current salaries. Many people are living below the breadline and this is one of the main contributors to the rising crime levels in South Africa.
Both businesses and private individuals are affected by the ongoing rise in crime, with recently published statistics indicating a 7,4% increase in the number of residential house robberies and a 13,7% increase in business robberies (source: Institute for Security Studies).
The problem is not an absence of methods and modes to detect, decrease and deter crime, but rather what is the best combination for a chosen application.
Held between 24 and 26 May 2016 at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, Johannesburg, Securex 2016 will provide visitors with the unrivalled opportunity to interact with leading local and international manufacturers and suppliers of the best brands in security and fire technology and services.
“We had an amazing turnout at the 2015 exhibition and with the inclusion of a CyberAfrica conference and workshop we are confident that we will see an even bigger increase in visitor numbers in 2016,” says Joshua Low, Securex event director at Specialised Exhibitions.
Low explains that Specialised Exhibitions has aligned itself with CSCSS (Centre for Strategic Cyberspace + Security Science) to offer South African businesses the opportunity to hear international cyber security specialists share their knowledge and research in a targeted one-day conference. Proposed topics include insider threats and ‘hackenomics’.
Other visitor attractions include the ever-popular educational sessions in the free-to-attend Securex Seminar Theatre where renowned speakers share pertinent information on industry best practice, trends and legislation; the Business Matchmaking Service sponsored by Ideco which allows visitors to be pre-matched with relevant exhibitors; and a New Products Display.
To book a stand or discuss a sponsorship package, prospective exhibitors are encouraged to contact Sven Riddle or Zelda Jordaan on: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.securex.co.za
