Among the show floor features due to take place at this year’s exhibition is the conference. Running daily sessions lead by senior industry experts, organisers have confirmed that Bulwark Intelligence is now signed up as a strategic partner to the event.

A privately-owned company, Bulwark Intelligence Solutions is focused on delivering extensive, accurate and dependable security, defence and intelligence solutions to around the globe. It was founded and is run by US Military veterans with combined experience of over fifty-two years in the defence, security and intelligence industry. The company has clientele across defence and security, oil & gas, academia, foreign investors, banking & finance, non-profits, political and global leaders.

Organisers have revealed a sneak preview of prominent topics as well as key speakers for this year’s Securex West Africa Conference. This year’s conference theme will be National Security in a Boundaryless World: 21st Century Solutions to Nigeria’s Insecurity.

As Nigeria’s population continues to grow with an estimated population of 450 million by 2050, it is important that all stakeholders, including security, military, political, civil society and more, come together to discuss solutions that will curb current and future threats while ensuring stability in the country.

The exhibitions regional director, George Pearson said; “Every year we consult with leading members of the industry to put together a cohesive programme of conference sessions that will not only inform Securex visitors, but also educate. In the current industry climate, with this transition into a new digital era, companies across the board are facing brand new threats and it is our goal to provide valuable insights into how to protect themselves.”

Just some of the key sessions announced include ‘Implementing 21st Century Security Strategies and Solutions; the place of technology and social media’, ‘Security Sector Reforms and Policies in Nigeria, addressing a boundaryless operating environment’ and ‘Community Cohesion: security as an enabler of/for development; towards solutions for stability’.

Among the key industry experts set to take the stage this year will be the Honorable Aliyu Gebi, senior special advisor to the Minister of Interior, Mr Wale Olaoye, CEO Halogen Security, Dr Solomon Arase, former inspector general of Police and Capt. Aliyu Umar (Rtd), CEO Goldwater and Riversands Consults, to name just a few.
