Lockdown, social distancing, covid-secure and remote working, are not only recent terms relating to Covid-19,but also describes the individual challenges faced by those working within security and estate management.

Since March 2020 many commercial premises, offices and public buildings have been ‘mothballed’ in the wake of the pandemic. Organisations have had to enact emergency planning measures to adapt their security and management needs. Has this resulted in greater or reduced investment within the sector?

Smart technology is a potential solution, which will evolve and shape how we look after shared spaces, though is it the panacea some experts believe in to be? Will we instead need a future hybrid model based on the susceptibility of cyber threats or is AI the clear future in automated systems?

Join us for a virtual forum to discuss the latest updates on latest technology, best practice and shared challenges.

Highlights of the Security and Estates Management Conference include:
