Radical Retail Risk programme awaits

August 2010 Conferences & Events

Retail Risk 2010 is around the corner. This year’s conference and exhibition will take place at the Southern Sun OR Tambo Hotel on 21 September 2010.

The conference will open with a presentation from the Consumer Goods Council providing an overview of the latest trends in retail security, highlighting the main areas of vulnerability in retail at the moment and discussing how to close the gaps that criminals use. This will be followed by the keynote from Michael Jackson, discussing change and how everyone, especially retailers need to be ready to take advantage of changes in technology.

Fouché Burgers will follow with a presentation discussing the use of automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology in the retail environment. Burgers will explain how ANPR can best serve the retail environment’s needs, providing examples from a recent successful project involving Spar, Business Against Crime and the SAPS.

Advocate Neville Melville will follow up with an overview of the Consumer Protection Act and its implications on the retail market. Crime is not the only risk the retail market faces, the Consumer Protection Act introduces new rules retailers must understand and comply with. SIA CEO, Steve Conradie will follow with an overview of the benefits and importance of using the services of an accredited guarding service provider, the requirements they should adhere to and what service users can realistically expect from their security service provider.

Business Against Crime’s Debbie Pryer will follow with a new perspective on cash management. She will speak on the success of the improved cash handling processes, the Secure Cash Distribution System (SCDS), that is currently in pilot at the Eastgate shopping centre. SABRIC’s Susan Potgieter will cover the banking industry’s FIFA 2010 experience. She will also take a crime-combating perspective and give an overview of what crimes retailers should be on the lookout for as we leave the soccer behind us and head into 2011.

Hi-Tech Security Solution’s regular contributor, Craig Donald, will discuss the potential role CCTV can play in addressing the pro­active and live detection of incidents though the use of behavioural monitoring strategies. The role of the operator will be discussed along with behavioural indicators and pattern recognition that allows the detection of incidents.

Following these presentations, we will have a series of case studies to end the conference. For more information or to register, go to www.retailrisk.co.za.
