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’ with a series of behind closed door discussion and working group opportunities.

This years provisional Closed Agency Only Workshop topics include:

Operational planning and rapid reaction
Preparing for unforseen operational spikes in border activity is essential, from the development of rapid reaction teams to sharing operational intelligence on the ground. This session aims to discuss and share experience and operational techniques.

Biometrics – The way forward
Biometrics technology has come of age and is now in widespread use in border control applications around the world. However, there are still practical issues around privacy, data protection, information sharing and best practice. This workshop will discuss these challenges and issues surrounding implementation.

Information Exchange and Cooperation
Everyone agrees that the sharing information is essential for secure borders. How can we manage data to insure its security and interity, whilst implementing a system of data exchange based on trust to make this a viable and enhance border management?

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