Terrorist activities continue unabated on a daily basis in many parts of the world. Global peace and national harmony are threatened. New terrorist groups are being formed and funded, and in the light of these developments specialists in counter terrorism and internal security need to understand the multiple threats that Governments are currently facing.
The GSA 2015 Conference will be held concurrently with the Exhibition and will bring together leading experts and specialists in the fields of Counter Terrorism, Internal State Security and Civil Defence. During the three days they will share their experiences, knowledge and expertise to discuss and identify potential threats that Governments and security professionals are facing today. The Conference will discuss how national counter terrorism policies, perspectives and strategies can stay ahead of the increasingly sophisticated threats and will analyse many of the security issues facing the region.
The Conference is focussed, and has an enviable reputation of delivering quality, meaningful discussions and analysis, and addressing practical perspectives that are currently faced on a daily basis by operational personnel.
Asia Pacific’s Premier Exhibition & Conference on Counter Terrorism and Security
Global Security Asia has achieved an enviable reputation and established itself as the premier “must-attend” International Exhibition and Conference focusing exclusively on Counter Terrorism, Internal State Security, Law Enforcement and Civil Defence in the Asia Pacific.
As in previous shows in the Series, GSA 2015 will retain its format as a 3-day Event showcasing the latest technology solutions in the Defence and Security environment. The Show will address the fundamental issues of global terrorism and internal state security which will present opportunities for specialists and engineers in the vitally important areas of internal state security and counter terrorism to share their experience and expertise regarding the sophisticated threats currently facing Governments in the region.
Besides the familiar National Pavilions, GSA 2015 will also be launching three new Pavilions focusing on CCTV, Perimeter Security and a special launch for First Time Exhibitors. Given the current level of Exhibitor bookings the 2015 Event promises to be even larger and more highly focused than 2013.
Join the GSA 2015 Show and enjoy the company of some of our bellwether Exhibitors who have already confirmed their participation including Ametek-Ortec, Research Electronics International (REI), Sig Sauer, Senstar Corporation, Cristanini S.p.A., Glock, Altrus Pte Ltd and Cornerstone Technica Pte Ltd to mention but a few.
Global Homeland Security Market: US$545 billion industry by 2018
Asia Pacific Second Biggest Growth Opportunity
Governments invest in Homeland Security products and services to ensure their readiness to avert any terrorist attacks on the homeland and to provide resilience in case of an attack. They also have to provide credible security against cyber fraud and cyber espionage and provide detection and protection capabilities against CBRN threats.
The global homeland security market is suggested to have reached a value of around US$415.53 billion at the beginning of 2013, and is forecast to hit a total of US$544.02 billion by the end of 2018. This suggests a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 5.54% between 2013 and 2018.
The cumulative market for homeland security during the forecast period is estimated at US$2,842.47 billion. However, about 15% of that total is expected to be the capital expenditure.
The threat of cross border terrorism, cybercrime, piracy, drug trade, human trafficking, internal dissent, separatist movements has been a driving factor for the homeland security market. The risk of terrorist attack has led to an increase in aviation security spending. The illegal arms and drug trafficking and immigration has led to heightened border and seaport security and has increased the demand for explosive detection systems, body scanners and baggage screening systems. The threat of a cyber-attack disrupting public and private network and infrastructure has driven the cyber security spending across the past decade.
The need for effective identification and security checking and the need to provide access control to critical infrastructure have led to the adaptation of biometric and other identification technologies. The general IT modernization has greatly improved record keeping and coordination of cases across the internal security department and thus has gained wide acceptance across the world and is seen as yet another driver in the homeland security sector. Similarly the need for effective command, control and intelligence apparatus for the first responders has led the need for effective C3I systems.
The upgrading of border security and the demand for effective immigration control has fuelled the need for biometrics, fixed surveillance devices, and unmanned aerial vehicles.
US and Europe are expected to remain as the main market for homeland security systems and the region has the top industry participants who cater to this sector.
The second biggest growth opportunity is from the Asia Pacific region where the growing economies are set to increase their homeland security expenditure. Opportunity also exists in Middle East, followed by Latin America and Africa.
Although Asian market especially China's internal security spending is significantly higher than the US, it is of less interest as the market is restricted to western firms.

After leading CBRNe events in Europe and Asia, the NCT CBRNe event series is coming to the Middle East!
NCT CBRNe Middle East will take place 9-11 December 2014 in Abu Dhabi, providing a one-day live CBRNe demonstration as well as two days of conference and workshops.
Taking place in a region, which has repeatedly been endangered by the proliferation and usage of nuclear and chemical weapons, NCT CBRNe Middle East 2014 will discuss this enduring threat to regional and international security, and how military special forces and first responders can prepare for the worst case. Being surrounded by conflict regions and increasingly failed states, especially countries on the Arabian Peninsula must prepare for nonconventional attacks on their homeland and people. States such as Kuwait, the UAE and Saudi-Arabia are living with CBRNe threats since the First and Second Gulf War. However, the conflict on the Iranian nuclear program, civil war and chemical weapon incidents in Syria, political instability in North Africa, as well as concerns of CBRNe proliferation to terrorist networks operating in Yemen, Iraq, Egypt, Syria and Afghanistan make the nonconventional threat a more immediate and realistic one.
IB Consultancy will therefore assemble leading international experts and regional decision-makers and first responders to discuss this imminent threat, best practices and effective approaches in CBRNe detection, mitigation and decontamination.
NCT CBRNe Middle East Highlights
Building on the success of three years of NCT CBRNe events in Europe and Asia, this 3-day event will face challenges and discuss novel solutions and approaches of experts from the Middle East, Central Asia, Europe and the US. While recognizing the need for exchange of information and best practices between international decision-makers and military experts, NCT CBRNe Middle East 2014 will provide the perfect platform to exchange views and novel approaches to counter this enduring threat.

US Ports Discussion - The Looming Ports Crisis
US container imports are up 7.8% this year and yet port terminal operating practice and use of technology have changed little. Particularly in peak shipping months, turn times for containers from available to mounted to outgate increase causing challenges for shippers, dray carriers and ocean carriers alike. In an industry where the imperative is to "sweat assets", the impact on turn times causes inefficiencies and ultimately increases cost. Perhaps more importantly it is causing a crisis in the dray community where dray carriers cannot achieve the asset turns necessary to be profitable. As large vessels come on line in the US in the next few years, the problem would seem to only get worse.
Built for Agility: How Clarks Companies is Redefining the Supply Chain
As customers order merchandise across myriad channels, supply chains are being tested like never before. To address these challenges, retailer Clarks Companies N.A. is using "big data" to recast its business processes and enable omni-channel fulfillment through an automated, state-of-the-art logistics center able to handle volumes of 50 million pairs of shoes annually. With multiple businesses to serve in the Americas, including its direct-to-consumer, wholesale and retail segments, Clarks is transforming its warehouse technology infrastructure and organizational design to improve order accuracy, fulfillment speed and workflow productivity, while eliminating inefficiencies and excess inventory. Clarks utilized big data and integrated modeling tools that incorporated various data sources such as forecasted customer demand, projected inventory levels, facility constraints, and product migration approaches. The outputs drove insights that enabled the business to appropriately define the overall transition plan, weekly execution plans, and labor requirements while minimizing impact to customers, financials, and operations.
Transportation - Too Hot to Handle
In the session, attendees will hear industry updates on:
The Future of Returns: An Offensive Weapon for Retailers?
Returns and reverse logistics are a critical but often overlooked piece of the supply chain puzzle. What are consumers looking for in a returns experience? What are retailers looking for in a returns process? How can the returns process create value for the retailer and the customer? How can technology (software, RFID, Bluetooth, etc.) enable the process? Is it possible to optimize your network for both directions of product flow? All these questions and more will be explored.
Omni-Channel Online: Impact on Customer Experience and Your Supply Chain
Retail channel mix requirements and service demands are changing. Customers no longer think in channels, rather they expect a seamless experience regardless of the channel. Does your fulfillment strategy align with your changing channel mix to support omni-channel? Should you manage fulfilment in shared or separate operations?
Leveraging the Store for Omni-Channel Advantage
Used effectively, retailers' networks of brick & mortar stores can be an incredible advantage in an omni-channel environment. Discuss leading practices in leveraging stores for success, and how to "get it right."

The Business Case for Sustainability
From the supplier to the store, sustainability is a key issue for retailers. It's not just the right thing to do, it has a bottom line impact as well. Hear about the sustainability initiatives of two major retailers, from initial steps to metrics and ROI, including Walgreens "net zero" initiative.
Final Mile Delivery, Big and Small
Last mile home delivery is a key driver shaping the growth and trajectory of the US eCommerce and omni-channel retail economy. The breadth of goods and products that consumers wish to purchase on-line ranges from very large items such as white goods, furniture and large electronics, to very small items such as health and beauty aids and office supplies. Service level expectations for home delivery are rising with same day delivery being preferred by many consumers. UPS and FedEx and others, including Google Shopping Express, are blazing the trail for small format and parcel products. Large format product categories seem to be stuck in an ineffective and inefficient delivery model. The presenters in this session will share their experiences and vision for small and large format deliveries.
Case Study: The Massive Profit Impact of Vendor Performance Improvement
Pep Boys, a $3 billion retailer, participated in a joint case study by Compliance Networks (a supplier performance and compliance solution provider) and Retalon (a predictive analytics solution provider) to uncover hundreds of millions of dollars in inventory savings to be achieved by incremental improvements in supplier on-time shipping performance.
Omni-Channel is Going Mobile
As consumer preferences for "buy anywhere/get anywhere" shopping experiences increase, the store-only model is becoming obsolete. In recent years, the retail industry has placed a tremendous amount of resources and capital on e-commerce, but now more than ever, the demand for mobile as a sales channel is growing. According to Forrester, mobile commerce sales will reach $31 billion by 2016, and in a recent Retail Systems Research report, more than 70% of supply chain leaders surveyed plan to invest in mobile. In this panel session, hear from top executives on how retailers are strategically leveraging mobile sales, and learn:
An exploration of some of the emerging technologies that will play a role in the future of retail supply chain. Topics include wearable technologies (e.g. Google glass and similar products) used in store and DC/FC environments, robotics used in customer order picking, 3D printing and the on-demand supply chain, and more.

This session offers attendees the chance to engage in small group discussion and the opportunity to hear from leading practitioners in the industry.
Intermodal – The Pressure is On
With the domestic OTR market continuing to tighten due to driver shortages, regulation and economic factors, the spotlight is shifting to intermodal as an increasingly import part of the transportation service mix for retailers and other shippers alike. While investments are continuing to be made by railroads and IMCs alike, congestion, drayage capacity and network constraints restrict efforts to grow. Further, the desire for short-haul intermodal both within the Eastern core as well as the West may require more innovation if the intermodal and BCOs are to fully exploit the potential and need for conversion in this area.
Honey, I Shrunk the Store
This session will discuss the evolution of the retail landscape in the US and how it impacts the supply chain. Smaller stores that fit the "urbanization" trend and mini stores and that act as a gateway to omni-channel sales are some examples of how retailers are creatively adapting to today's ever-changing market. Join us to learn about the latest factors driving change and how current supply chain operations are stepping up to meet these challenges.
Where, When, and What I Want: Inventory Optimization
In today's omni-channel retail environment, most retailers and distributors struggle to have the right SKU at the right place, in the right quantity, and at the right time to meet the demands of their customers... and there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Inventory optimization is key to a successful omni-channel retail strategy. However, retailers need to move beyond mere inventory optimization and look at their customer, payment and inventory life cycles. By taking this holistic approach, retailers can ensure a demand-driven supply chain and a positive, seamless customer experience. In this session, learn from retail leaders who are making strides towards supply chain utopia through inventory optimization while gaining increased profits and improved customer service.
Student Session: Retail in a Progressively Mobile World
In today’s world, Moore’s Law is becoming more and more relevant to our day-to-day lives as citizens and consumers. The ways in which retailers are advertising, selling, and distributing, is continuing to evolve as quickly as the technology through which it subsists. As a result, retailers must continually strive to expand their online and mobile integration throughout their networks. RILA’s College Student Program affords college undergraduates a unique opportunity to explore this rapidly changing mobile landscape in which they, and their future employers, are living in.

The Challenges of Global Supply Chain Planners
For many retailers Global Supply Chains represent a critical element of their inventory and cost strategies. Planners can enable differentiation at the shelf, via the expansion of unique product offerings at reasonable prices. To be successful, Global Supply Chain Planners must design replenishment strategies that achieve inventory goals within an environment of long lead times and variability. Additionally, Planners must recognize the external environment affecting inventory availability, such as port congestions, border issues, weather elements, etc. In this session, we will discuss proven methods utilized by Global Supply Chain Planners to deliver against their companies’ objectives by properly recognizing risk and establishing mitigating actions.

Closing Keynote: Thriving in Challenging Environments
Business Insider succinctly summarized Ben Saunders’ infamous journey to the South Pole as “A Polar Expedition that Killed Everyone the Last Time It Was Attempted.” Believing that “we can all accomplish great feats through ambition, passion, stubbornness, and refusal to quit,” Saunders shares stories about how to rise to the challenge in front of you and thrive in the most challenging environments. From pushing past mental and physical barriers to exploring your innate inner strength, Saunders shows audiences how to embrace adversity and challenge in order to reach their true potential. When your body says quit, what makes your mind charge ahead? When the stakes are high and things go wrong, how do we remain calm and moving forward? This modern day Shackleton takes audiences on an expedition about endurance and determination that is applicable to us all.

Homeland Security continues to evolve as a national effort to coordinate and integrate critical tasks and missions, supporting organizations, and required capabilities.
