Day Two will be more IT-focused, examining the subject of convergence
and encompassing the increasing integration of physical and cyber

businesses are increasingly vulnerable to blended threats. Therefore,
it's vital to be able to prioritise risks and respond effectively to a
wide variety of threats.

Sub-Committee) and Sarb Sembhi (director of consulting services at
Incoming Thought) have worked together on a variety of projects which
identify these converged issues and developed integrated solutions.
Both are delighted to be introducing the key aspects of their work at
Global Security Summit London this coming October.
Each day of the new show will be divided into two individual themes with
'Creating Safer Cities: The Role of Partnerships' scheduled for the
morning of Day One and 'Security Challenges for Global Organisations'
in the afternoon.
