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.
