Security Forward Risk & Intelligence Forum
Forum (Invitation Only)

Security Forward was created as a forum for Corporate Security Directors to meet and network with their peers four times a year and share intelligence, including interactive presentations from Security experts. Membership is by invitation only and limited to a select number of Corporate Security Directors. Each meeting will start at lunchtime and conclude with a dinner.

The Group's mission is to focus on security issues related to business, including analysing the threat from terrorism, and to identify ways in which companies can cost-effectively ensure the protection of their employees and corporate interests throughout the world.

The Group addresses a critical need for pragmatic, sensible solutions, based on unbiased assessment of risk and cost-benefit analysis. The Programme Chairman is Keith Holland, assisted by Intelligence Analyst Crispin Black, who serves as Senior Advisor. The Group monitors strategic developments in Europe, the Middle East, USA and globally and helps Members to frame the business perspective and identify pragmatic corporate solutions for both physical security and data protection. The Group is cross sector and open to Members based anywhere in the world. The Group provides Members with access to the information and resources they need to address today’s fast-changing security challenges in a timely and cost-effective manner.

The annual fee for membership and four private meetings a year is £3,000 pounds to include afternoon sessions with a guest speaker plus a presentation from Crispin Black and dinner.
