2) What is this event about?
The two-day event will facilitate a discussion on the future of border points and key topics such as biometrics, smart borders, migration, cross-border crime, border security in a pandemic and much more.
3) When & where is it?
The conference will take place on Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th February 2021 on SMi Group’s Virtual Conference Platform.
4) Why is this event important?
With COVID-19 spreading across the globe, the security and integrity of a nation’s borders has rarely been more important than ever before. Security protocols have been thrust into the global spotlight as border professionals have had to adapt and change their usual approaches while ensuring that their effectiveness is not compromised; a successful response has frequently hinged on the ability of a nation to prevent infected individuals from entering the country.
Amid this disruption, the problems of migration, cross-border criminality, and smart-borders have become even more critical as rogue elements seek to exploit the situation. These issues need to be addressed urgently by the international community.
