The Emerging Threat: Identifying, Measuring and Preparing for the Security Implications of Civil and Commercial Drones
Estimated at around $127 billion, the 'drone revolution' is booming. But amongst the optimism is a creeping concern about the security and safety threat that this technology presents to critical national infrastructure, homeland security and a range of commercial sectors.
In response to this threat, various counter-drone defence systems are being developed by government and industry and it is predicted that this technology will begin to play a significant role in facility security systems as the use of civil and commercial drones becomes commonplace. But, for now, there remains a great deal of known knowns, known unknowns, and unknown unknowns for security professionals and sectors most vulnerable to drone attack or intrusion.
It is in this context that Defence IQ will host its inaugural Countering Drones conference this December to provide an opportunity for a security experts from a diverse community of sectors to ensure that they can guarantee the security of their assets and public safety for the future.
