Combatting Bribery and Corruption in Private Industry

Bribery and Corruption can have serious negative impacts on society, individuals and business. Bribery and Corruption can undermine the rule of law, deny access to justice, distorts markets and drives away investment; provides the wrong incentives and undermines innovation. Irish law criminalises bribery and corruption, has a global reach, and is applicable to Irish Nationals, Irish companies, and persons ordinarily resident in Ireland when abroad.


Pádhraic Gibbons, Department of Education & Skills
 Safety Through Environmental Design (STED): a holistic approach to workplace safety and security

This presentation will explore how the experience of a multi-tiered and multi-agency strategy one European school employed to overcome the threat and associated risks of gang culture developed to become a wider philosophy. How, from this experience the concept of Safety Through Environmental Design (STED) was conceived and why it is important for security professionals.

It’s not new, but with the ever-expanding volumes of data on the internet and the development of software tools to exploit it, Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) is the latest product aimed at the Physical Security market.
