This fast-paced three-day introduction to security management was developed initially in response to a specific requirement from the oil & gas sector and is aimed at any manager with local responsibility for security.


The workshop's broad content makes it of clear benefit to delegates from other sectors operating in environments with similar risks.


Security of assets and operations from external, and internal, sources of loss is an essential element of any business. Not all businesses, however, can afford the luxury of a full-time security manager.  In many cases responsibility for security rests with a line manager, or is an additional responsibility for health and safety, facilities or general services managers. 


The Business Security for Managers (BSM) workshop has been specially designed to provide non-fulltime managers of security with the essential skills and knowledge necessary to manage the day-to-day security of business units.


Developed in partnership with a major ARC client, hundreds of delegates of many nationalities have attended BSM workshops in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

Other events in 2006:





Grand Hyatt Muscat, 26th - 29th November 2006 


Computers and other digital electronic equipment are increasingly being used in the commission of modern crimes, with criminals often using sophisticated measures to hide evidence.  With computer systems and networks now controlling highly critical infrastructure it is essential that information is protected and mechanisms are in place to prevent, detect and investigate potential security breaches.


The primary objective of the workshop is to provide those wishing to understand cryptographic techniques, starting work in the forensic area, and those tasked with protecting the critical infrastructure with a detailed understanding of the field of security technology. The course will also provide experienced analysts with up to date information on forensic techniques and technologies.  It is designed to provide a detailed insight into how networks and critical infrastructures are attacked, how data is protected through the use of advanced cryptography, and the use of forensic techniques to investigate crime.
