Background information on CP EXPO 2014

Security is a societal challenge, and concerns the protection of citizens, society and economy, as well as Europe’s assets, infrastructures and services, the prosperity of everyone, the political stability and well-being. Shortly, security is protection of the Community, in its wider sense. Malfunction and disruptions, both intentional or accidental can have a strong impact with high economic, societal and even politic costs.

CPExpo is the answer to the exigency of an exhibition, which provides visibility and business opportunities to those industrial solutions and the newest innovation enabling communities to feel safe. Among its objectives, CPExpo aims at:

1) offering an integrated “snapshot” of the future, as regards both risks and solutions;

2) providing an up-to-date overview of the technologies, systems and solutions available for Critical Infrastructure protection;

3) promoting international debate and cooperation between and among public and private security stakeholders.

Following the positive experiences of previous Security Research Events organised in Germany (Security, Essen), in Spain (“HOMSEC 2013”) and in France (MILIPOL), the European Commission’s Directorate General Enteprise and Industry will organise the European Security Research Conference 2014 within CPExpo.
