The importance of Security at high profile events and venues

Security Crowd Control CCTV - Keeping your facility safe through technology

Date Tuesday 6 October 2015
Time 10:30 - 12:00




Session Description

Amusement parks, attraction and high profile events and venues face myriad security issues from bomb threats and terrorist alerts to crowd control and general emergencies. Technology can provide many solutions but nothing is better than planning and preparation. This session will explore current security issues faced by attractions and it will examine through a number of case-studies a variety of steps that attractions can take to better prepare and manage these types of emergencies.

Clive Stephens, currently CEO of The View from The Shard was the General Manager of the London Olympic Park, Feb 2011-Oct 2012. This massive event space hosted over 5,000,000 spectators, 250,000 on its busiest day, had an operating team of approximately 50,000 employees. Clive will outline the role that security played in the process of planning the delivery of this incredible event.

Stuart Craik, Head of Security, Natural History Museum in London gives a presentation on the threat of the theft of rhino horns from the Museum’s collection. Stuart will focus on: why museums was targeted; how the museum gained intelligence about potential thefts, what the response was by the Museum to the threat, and the challenge of securing valuable specimens against allowing access to visitors.

Finally, Anders Fridehall, Director of Safety and Security at Liseberg will examine the security measures adopted at Liseberg including, how security is managed at the park; how the team ensure a safety-first culture; what new technology is used at Liseberg; how the security team’s approach changes in line with different events and the role of the security team in response to accidents and incidents.
