INTERPOL World 2017 Congress to lead industry dialogue for a unified approach to combat future crime

INTERPOL World 2017, 4-7 July 2017 in Singapore, is set to bring law enforcement agencies, government bodies, academia, security professionals and solution providers together over three days of networking and information exchange this July. The global exhibition and congress aim to stimulate collaborations between stakeholders to address crimes in the future.
This year, the INTERPOL World Congress will see a brand-new conference structure to give attendees a more guided experience with an end-to-end approach. Featuring over 40 speakers across the public and private sectors, the Congress will address pressing concerns via three dedicated tracks – Cybercrime (4 July), Safe Cities (5 July) and Identity Management (6 July). All three days will begin with a macro dialogue to highlight the spectrum of future security challenges. This will be followed by a segment covering strategic perspectives from practitioners, researchers and academia, who will cast light on technologies that are available to address the security challenges. The days will end with insightful case studies featuring real-life applications and results that some organizations have achieved in different parts of the world.
Participants at the Congress will hear from leading security solutions providers such as Kaspersky Lab, Microsoft, NEC, Securiport and SICPA, as well as thought leaders from Police Departments and Security Research Institutions such as:
