New at VdS Fire-Safety 2018: Symposium "Security and Alarm Management – from Planning to Intervention”

Interesting for professionals from the security and fire protection services sectors; 4th December 2018 at the Cologne Exhibition Centre

VdS Fire-Safety 2018 presents the new symposium "Security and Alarm Management" with a wide range of topics interesting for professional experts from the fields of fire protection and security technology.

Cologne, May 2018: As part of VdS Fire-Safety 2018 in Cologne, VdS will present the symposium "Security and Alarm Management – from Planning to Intervention" for the first time on 4th December 2018. It is aimed equally at security and fire protection professionals and deals with optimally integrated risk prevention.

The new symposium is based on the proven VdS-Symposium "Safety and Security Services", but covers a much broader range of topics. In particular, various topics from the field of fire protection and prevention are now also represented, as security and fire protection services are increasingly converging and should be carefully coordinated. For the same reason, the symposium will now take place at VdS Fire-Safety.

The diverse programme provides information on current developments in relevant regulations, official requirements and technical solutions. Among other things, the experienced speakers from fire brigades, industry and security services will talk about secure alarm processing with AES, VdS-certified emergency call and service control centres, experience with certified security management and the efficient interaction of man and technology within the security concept. Future topics are also on the agenda, for example a possible alarm transmission in the Cloud and risk analyses for a modern KRITIS (critical infrastructures protection system).

This mix of topics is interesting for a wide circle of people. These include security service providers, security officers from companies, authorities or banks, police officers, insurers, fire protection and prevention specialists as well as operators of fire brigade control centres, including plant fire brigades.

Attendance of VdS Fire-Safety 2018 included

During the breaks the participants can visit the large, international fire protection and prevention fair of VdS Fire-Safety, at which current products and solutions for fire protection systems, structural and organisational fire protection and safety management are presented. They also have free access to the thematic forums within the exhibition hall: the "Future-Forum for Fire Protection", which was successfully launched last year, and the proven exhibitor and science forums.
