CIVSEC 2020 is an international forum dealing with the inextricably connected imperatives of civil security in the preservation of sovereignty, the protection of people and the safety of communities.

Comprising an exposition of equipment, technology and services and a congress of specialist conferences, CIVSEC 2020 confronts the complex and increasingly interconnected security, and environmental challenges facing modern societies.

It will bring together leaders and decision-makers, policy makers and advisers, managers and officials, operational professionals, technical specialists, strategists and academics, researchers and consultants, technology developers and industry suppliers.

While focusing on the Indo-Asia-Pacific region, CIVSEC 2020 will address issues of global significance. The sovereignty, safety, prosperity and cohesion of societies and communities everywhere are threatened by natural disasters and emergencies, by human catastrophe and civil disorder, by criminal activity and terrorism and by the movement of distressed populations across porous frontiers.

The key players who respond to these challenges are diverse: governments and non-government organisations, aid agencies and emergency first-responders, police and para-military law-enforcers, national armed forces, immigration and customs authorities, border protection agencies and specialists in law, medicine, infrastructure, civil affairs and search & rescue.

The scope of CIVSEC 2020 is correspondingly comprehensive and its compass international. Its purpose is the promotion of policy and the development of capability in the protection of people and the safeguarding of society.

CIVSEC 2020 will be a forum for policy and a showcase for technology and equipment.

The CIVSEC 2020 congress will be the essential platform for discussion and debate on policy and direct action by key decision-makers from across the region and further afield. The CIVSEC 2020 exposition will enable key players and decision makers to network with the manufacturers, equipment suppliers, technology developers and service providers that can provide the necessary materiel for aid and security.
