Smarter Surveillance for Safer Cities
With the GCC in a quest to build the next-generation smart cities over the next few years, security and safety remain a top priority for more sustainable development of Gulf communities. This can be driven by having a smart monitoring and surveillance system, backed up with a robust data analytics mechanism to drive actionable intelligence across homeland security and public safety entities.
With smart government services and applications being integrated with the internet of things (IOT), there is a considerable focus amongst GCC nations to modernise security operations centres (SOCs), deploy smart patrolling activities, improve the command and control operations of police forces and build safe and secure smart cities of the future.
The Smart Surveillance for Safer Cities Awards and Conference will take place from 27-28 March 2017 in Abu Dhabi, UAE, focusing on integrated city surveillance, control & monitoring mechanisms to develop smart public safety and security systems. With the GCC region expected to spend US$34 billion by 2020 across security operations and a market growing at 18.7% per year, the event is an ideal platform to discuss the deployment of next-generation technologies including smart visual surveillance, simplified communication devices and consoles, multi-server command centre integration, real-time data analytics with automated dashboards, threat intelligence combined with cyber defence and many more.
The event will have experts from homeland security agencies, police, customs, border guards, airports and ports, industrial security, armed forces across the land, air and sea that will discuss the roadmap ahead required for the tactical synergy and develop actionable intelligence across the region.
