The 9th edition of our annual security conference Homeland Security Conference will take place 2 November 2022 in Copenhagen.

As an innovation and technology conference, we bring together representatives from the entire Homeland Security and cyber security community; leading experts, industry decision makers, governmental authorities, and academics, in order to share knowledge and strengthen capabilities. The overall objective is to explore potential business opportunities within the industry and connect stakeholders.

The conference has an overall focus on issues, challenges and possible countermeasures within the Homeland Security context and will take a dive into the following areas:

  • Homeland Security Perspectives 2022
  • Securitization of Energy Supplies
  • Territorial Control and Surveillance Innovations and Technologies
  • Securing Critical Infrastructure
  • Investments and Collaboration Opportunities for Innovative Security Solutions

The format of the conference is the same every year – 10 minutes presentations, followed by a joint panel debate with speakers. By following this approach, we are able to involve a broad range of capabilities and include + 20 speakers during the full day of program. This way, the participants are introduced to a broad range of information and insights during the day.
