Security, protection and technology were the major issues highlighted during the opening of the SecProTec East Africa 2015 at KICC, Nairobi. The third annual SecProTec East Africa taking place from 9-11th July seeks to bring together different participants to showcase their brand new products, showing the latest innovation and give special conference lectures.
The exhibition and conference goal is to establish, uphold and promote high standards in the industry, as a unique quality assurance both to consumers and to state security forces seeking private sector partnership in the fight against crime while keeping people and property safe against the increasing pressure of crime. Some of the topics discussed at the conference include: information and data storage, cybercrime, advantages of communication intelligence, insurgency, terrorism and piracy among others.
This year’s event has attracted industries from East and Central Africa with Kenya Security Award Group Organizing the annual award ceremony. The award ceremony takes into recognition outstanding security firms inventions in East Africa and across other countries.
Speaking at the event, Kenya Private Sector Alliance Partnerships Coordinator, Mr Keli Kiilu said “Security is of great essence when it comes to investment. Foreign companies can’t invest in an insecure country. Therefore, there is need for our country to have good security infrastructure to facilitate socio-economic growth.”
SecProTec was established two years ago and has since grown with 53 companies from 12 countries participating.
