How do we prevent the next threat? Police Commissioners from around the world share their insights
In our modern world, there exists a synergy between the physical and cybernetic dimensions. This synergy presents law enforcement agencies with significant challenges regarding the methods and solutions that will best help protect the lives of civilians. The options are vast and knowing which solution will work best when the threats are not completely clear can be a daunting task.

In this session, we will meet police commissioners from around the world. Together we will attempt to create a roadmap that will prevent the next threat from occurring, using technology, intelligence, and human forces.

In addition, we will discuss the fine line that distinguishes between law enforcement, and civil and collective responsibilities when making decisions in real time.

The Expanding Universe of Critical Structures: Prediction, Protection and Prevention
Yuri Rassega, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at Enel, Rassega, Italy
Protecting critical infrastructure is vital to securing a given country’s ability to continuously run essential services – both governmental and civil, and raises the importance of taking into account both cybernetic and kinetic concerns.

As the world continues to expand its protection of critical infrastructure, such as airports, sea ports and electrical infrastructure, new challenges area rising in fields such as energy, transportation, hospitals, banks and more.

In this session we will meet professionals in the fields of law enforcement and public institution management to discuss how we can continue to protect critical infrastructures while predicting and preventing danger.

In the present day and age, protecting crowds occurs both in the physical and virtual worlds. Crowds in these spaces are both a sensitive and significant target in influencing countries.

In this session we will discuss the challenges of finding the right security measures to manage emergency events in various spaces, whether caused by humans or nature. In our discussion, we will put a spotlight on the civil space as a factor that supports countries in dealing with emergency situations.

Maya – integrative intelligence for rescue unites
Colonel Elad Edri, Search-and-rescue brigade Commander, Israel
In this session the Home Front Command of Israel will provide a first glimpse into a new intelligence platform that provides authorities with real-time insights into emergency situations in which survivors are trapped.

The system supports three main processes: collection, research, and data presentation, and provides law enforcement officials with real-time data access on the front lines.

We will learn about the system’s mapping technology, imaging capabilities, and the relationship it creates between intelligence and rescue forces in order to help find trapped survivors.
