Wednesday 8th June: 09:30–17:00 & Thursday 9th June: 09:30–16:00
Registration is now open for the Counter Terror Expo (CTX), which takes place on 8–9 June at ExCeL London. Entry is free for professionals involved in counter-terrorism, security and forensics.
Terrorists have become extremely adept at operating in the online space to deliver strategic messaging, recruit followers and enable physical operations through funding and communication. Despite efforts by governments and online leaders in the private sector to crack down on terrorist activity, the problem remains.
Terrorist organisations have shifted away from online activity in the public domain and now utilise an array of clandestine platforms to share propaganda, recruit, communicate and enable their physical operations. Ranging from encrypted apps to the dark web activity in the digital space remains a huge challenge for law enforcement and those tasked with restricting the proliferation of extremism online. This is set to grow exponentially with the rise of the decentralised web and alternative platforms in response to increased online censorship and control.
The 2022 Counter Terror Congress will focus exclusively on the online element of CT. It will provide a dedicated forum for government stakeholders, digital policing, the tech community and relevant stakeholders to explore proactive solutions to the challenges faced.
At the expo, you will meet top suppliers of the latest cutting edge CT products and services and have the opportunity to network with your peers. CTX will feature two theatres packed with content delivered by leading voices from the CT and security sector. Attendance at CTX 2022 is free for security and CT professionals and includes entry to the co-located Forensics Europe Expo.
