30 March 2015

Securitas has been announced as main sponsor and organiser for the inaugural ASIS UK Enterprise Risk Management Northern Seminar.

The seminar, which will take place at the University of Leeds on Thursday 9 April 2015, will give delegates an understanding of how organisations can use Enterprise Risk Management to deliver their security and risk-related services.

Speakers include Neil Gammon, Head of Physical Security at Sky, who will give an insight into managing enterprise risk within a creative media organisation; and Dr Kevin Macnish, Teaching Fellow at the University of Leeds who will deliver a talk on how to ethically manage risk.

Securitas' Gail Pinkerton, Account Director on the Workman contract, will present delegates with a case study on security risk management within a business environment - explaining how Securitas works alongside the property management and building consultancy to minimise and mitigate risk.

Securitas' Director of Security Risk Management, Dr Peter Speight CSyP, who himself is a ASIS member and recently elected UK Chapter Secretary said: "We're very much looking forward to this event and are delighted that nearly 100 delegates have registered so far. Enterprise risk management is such a focused area for risk and security professionals and the interest in this event has given us the confidence to look into hosting even more in the future."
