Conference Security and Alarm Management – From Planning to Intervention

4th December 2018

Cologne Exhibition Centre, Congress Centre East

The world of security and alarm management has been in a state of flux for some years now.

It was triggered in particular by new and changed European standards and technological challenges, but also by changes in the legal framework. The convergence of fire protection and security services is illustrated by an exciting and forward-looking mix of topics.

Only continuous monitoring of the relevant topics and, if necessary, adaptation of infrastructures and processes are promising in the long term.

For customers in need of security, the optimal combination of modern technologies with proven security services is crucial for the selection and acceptance of the security service provider.

The VdS-Conference Security and Alarm Management focuses on the important current challenges and also looks at topics with a promising future. It always focuses on the implementation of optimum security, from planning to intervention. For this reason, the former symposium "Security Services" will take place for the first time with a much broader thematic spectrum, embedded in the annual VdS-FireSafety Cologne, which takes place at Koelnmesse.
Speakers from practice explain even complex interrelationships in an understandable and competent way.

The conference will be held in German language.
