National Risk 09 – Looking beyond the Register
Where last year’s National Risk conference held in November looked at the importance of the National Risk Register and the audiences for whom the lessons were written, this event will aim to go beyond the local ‘whys’ and look at the strategic national ‘how’.

The day will be opened by the Deputy Mayor of London, in his iconic second home, City Hall.  The day will take in a variety of perspectives on the subject of how to deal with the risks that could potentially affect the UK. This will draw on national experiences and strategies to international examples and the lessons identified.

We begin the day with accounts from Ian Walford of the Scottish Executive and Wyn Price from the Welsh Assembly Government, who will be tackling the implementation issues of the National Risk Assessment and the National Risk Register for their regions. From the local to international, Narinder Nayar will deliver a presentation on the Mumbai Terror Attacks; which is to include the security lessons to be learned from his position as advisor to the Indian Government of Maharashtra State. His talk will incorporate factors about the Mumbai tragedy whereby the UK can better prepare for such a terrorist atrocity.

The sessions will then move to focus on aspects of preparedness being currently developed and will include: Securing information, which is of course a global dilemma; Building protection into the Critical National Infrastructure; and the protection of the Transport Sector, as outlined by Superintendent Phil Trendall of the British Transport Police.

We are very pleased to have Cleo Paskal presenting in the afternoon, who will be highlighting the causes for concern in relation to environmental change, not only for the built landscape, but on how those changes will dramatic affect community order and disorder. This will be complemented by discussions focussing on the current financial issues and its resultant social repercussions, the way responders are dealing with this potential threat and also how government and non-government are likely to be affected.

The main audience will be ministerial level, the Cabinet Office, Home Office and the strategic end of the business community, as well as CPNI, SOCA, local authorities, emergency services, health authorities, the Department for Transport and Transport for London, the Civil Aviation Authority, utility providers, education authorities and the information assurance industry.
