The best of local and international speakers

August 2010 News

iLegal 2010 will take place on 12 October 2010 at the Southern Sun OR Tambo International in Johannesburg. This year will see Graeme Gerrard, deputy chief constable of the Cheshire Constabulary in the UK, delivering the keynote presentation.

Gerrard is a respected international speaker on CCTV and also makes representation to the UK Government as part of his responsibilities. He has also played a leading role in formulating the National Strategy for CCTV on behalf of the UK Government and he will be sharing the experience and the potential issues to be overcome with attendees.

Afrisec’s Gary Johnson will be offering a case study highlighting the challenges in reconciling different government, municipal, and commercial organisations in an integrated metro surveillance solution and some of the legal obligations and responsibilities that have to be addressed.

Every company with a surveillance solution needs to transmit video feeds and Gerhard Loots will be talking about the legal requirements incumbent upon them in ensuring they are able to use their videos in court with confidence. But legalities are only one part of having confidence in your surveillance system. Another important aspect is the reliability of the company’s surveillance system, which is dependent on good, continual maintenance.

Rob Anderson of Rob Anderson & Associates, will be discussing the in’s and out’s of maintenance contracts and how to ensure yours accomplishes what it needs to. He will also speak on an often-ignored aspect of security implementations, the legal implications of having contractors on site in light of South Africa’s health and safety legislation. What do you need to do to ensure your company is not responsible for any accidents that occur on site to your contractors’ staff.
