The World Border Security Congress aims to promote collaboration,  inter-agency cooperation and information/intelligence sharing amongst border agencies and agencies at the border to better engage and tackle the increasing threats and cross border security challenges that pertain in today’s global environment.

Border agencies and agencies at the border  can benefit from the ‘Closed Agency Only Workshops’, hosted by the Moroccan general directorate for border security, Directeur de la Migration et de la Surveillance des Frontiers, with a series of behind closed door discussion and working group opportunities.

This years Closed Agency Only Workshop topics include:

International Border Security Challenges – from THB and Document Fraud to Inter-Agency Co-operation and Information Sharing
Information sharing and upstream intelligence is key to identification and tracking of travellers. Yet agencies and enforcement organisations are still not effective in accomplishing this to best effect. How can agencies best share information and what are the restrictions and implications? Is it regulation and/or operation that needs to be modernised?

Health Issues in Border Security
It is not just the migration crisis seeing vast numbers of people cross borders with potential health risks. Legitimate travellers also bring health issues across borders, such as the Zika virus, Ebola and Asia Bird Flu epidemics. How can we enhance best practices for, and what role should the different agencies play in detecting and preventing the international spread of health issues?

Soft Surveillance at Borders – Human Development Initiatives
Without its people a nation cannot achieve anything and they are a vital part of the security community. How can we improve human development on borders and work with people to enhance cross border security? How can Human Development Initiatives in a Public Private Partnership help tackle international security issue?

By further encouraging such collaboration, cooperation and sharing of information between agencies, the World Border Security Congress aims to promote safer, more secure borders.
