International Institute of Security and Safety Management

February 2011 Associations

Between 9 and 11 December the International Institute of Security and Safety Management (IISSM) held its annual conference in New Delhi, India. The conference also marked its 20th anniversary. Sadly, a few days before the conference started IISSM chairman, R. Swaminathan passed away.

The theme of the conference was Private security as an enabler: Role, responsibilities and methodologies in the next decade. About 200 delegates attended the conference coming from India, Germany, Taiwan, United Kingdom, Australia, China, the United States and South Africa.

The South African delegation consisted of Errol Peace, SAIS chairman and Terry Scallan, the SAIS immediate past chairman who also presented a paper at the conference on the successes of safety and security at the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Professor Kris Pillay of UNISA, a SAIS governor and the governor for Africa of the IISSM also attended the conference. He presented a paper on behalf of John Kole of UNISA and another SAIS governor on the Effective monitoring of the private security industry in South Africa.

Amongst the other papers presented were Technology, a sure business enabler in the next decade, Technical intelligence, Cyber security and The emerging role of women in the private security industry. I will be publishing some of these interesting presentations at a later stage.

The conference was closed by Mr. M.K. Narayanan, Governor of West Bengal.
