Buildings & Facilities Management Conference, 29 November, London Olympia

Accredit Solutions will demonstrate how an innovative personnel screening platform can help secure against the insider threat at leading security event, UK Security Expo.

The brand new 1-day conference, supported by BIFM, focuses on counter terrorism advice and guidance for buildings & facilities managers and owners. As security threats have continued to multiply in the past decade, externally from criminal and terrorist groups, and internally via the insider threat. It has never been more important to understand who has access to your building and to make sure that all necessary documents are collected and kept up to date, as well as controlling where the individual can access once approved.

Peder Berg, Co-Founder and MD, Accredit Solutions comments “Security and counter terror is high on the agenda and it is vital that you know who is inside your building at all times. Businesses need to collect the right information from all staff, day to day visitors and contractors as well as caterers and cleaners. Photos, RAMs, qualifications, insurance and right to work permits need to be standard across the board. Would you know if a staff member had lost their right to work in the UK or had been convicted of a serious assault? Risk based personnel security measures play a major part in ensuring your building is airtight and secure against the insider threat.”

Berg continues “We offer a self-managed platform which provides all the tools required to easily and effectively capture information on everyone who needs access to your building. We work with a variety of organisations from businesses through to stadiums and venues as well as government bodies. Accredit can be scaled and tailored whether you are responsible for one hundred or one million people.” Accredit Solutions join a varied panel of expert speakers which include Alaric Bonthron, Head of Security, Kings College London; Paul Moxness, VP Corporate Safety & Security, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group and Chris Tsikolis, Police & Security Manager, Victoria Business District. Topics on the agenda include how to make a building terrorism resistant, communicating in a crisis and the importance of building links with safety and security. Visitors will benefit from best practice case studies and practical advice from different sectors as well as a focus on the latest innovations, technologies and solutions on offer.

Peder Berg will be speaking at 12:00 on the Building & Facilities Management conference which takes place on 29 November at London Olympia.
