overview

Informa Australia are pleased to announce the 9th annual Campus Security & Safety Conference which will be held on the 8th & 9th of May 2017 at the Rendezvous Grand Hotel, Melbourne. The event is the ONLY dedicated security & safety event for the education sector in the Asia-Pacific region.

Managing security on campus is a complex task for security teams, extending not only from managing the physical security of the campus, such as through real-time wide CCTV coverage, threats and emergency response procedures, but also towards managing the health and well-being of students whose behaviour might put themselves or others in danger.

The 9th Annual Campus Security & Safety Conference will bring together senior level experts to discuss the challenges that security teams have to face on a day-to-day basis, with presentations and case studies of first-hand experiences to highlight some of the key challenges and solutions to improve the security of campuses and the safety of students.

Topics include:

  • Rethinking university design to increase inclusiveness
  • Sexual assault and sexual harassment on campus
  • Cybersecurity
  • Digital Student Data (DSD) Project
  • Student mental health and cultural diversity on campus
  • Supporting staff and student wellbeing
  • Social media engagement
  • Student Representative Panel
  • Addiction and abuse
  • Emergency preparedness

Registrations for the event have opened. Save $300.00 with the early bird pricing for the full two-day conference by registering before Friday 24th February.

Drug use and the signs of drug use can be confronting. While
prescription medicines and illicit drugs are now responsible for more
fatalities in Victoria than road traffic accidents, media reports can
often paint an inaccurate picture of drug use in our communities,
workplaces, educational facilities and other institutions. We need to
talk openly about an issue that’s not going away.

Conflict Intelligence™ is a simple, yet powerful, model that develops one’s ability to consciously connect with and manage conflict by building collaborative understanding. It is about increasing one’s CI awareness, insight and skills. This presentation will also explore how to manage client/ customer behaviour on the challenging to aggressive continuum.

The use of fraudulent student credentials is rife. This occurs not only at the graduate level but can also been found with senior experienced applicants.

This problem affects the domestic market but also the overseas market both in-bound and out-bound.

This has spawned an industry of verification providers. This adds time and cost to the recruitment process.

There is a global move to replace paper based records with digitally certified copies. This will allow for the secure and certified sharing of the student records.

Australian and New Zealand Universities have launched the My eQuals initiative which will see most ANZ universities launch the digital service over the next 18 months.

This presentation discusses the initiative, why it is important to students, universities and employees and how security and privacy is maintained.
