Challenges in the security sector – SICUR 2022

SICUR FORUM, the programme of technical seminars at the SICUR 2022 International Safety and Security Trade Fair will run from 22 – 25 February. It provides a space for analysis and debate that will address the most topical issues and the new challenges in security, as part of a critical event that will reflect the importance of this sector for the functioning of the economy and the progress of society.

Organised by IFEMA MADRID, in partnership with the most important associations and entities representing both industry professionals and consumers, SICUR FORUM offers four days of content focused on information and training, helping to strengthen knowledge and bring safety and security to the forefront of attention for both professionals and consumers.

The SICUR FORUM follows the same organisational format as the trade fair, by sector: Security, Fire Safety and Emergencies, Occupational Health and Safety, and SICUR Cyber.


The Security block will host the seminar presenting the Cluster 3 HORIZON EUROPE FORUM ‘Civil Security for Society’, organised by the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI), as well as the conferences ‘Women and Security: we drive change in trends’ from the Spanish Association of Security Companies (AES) and ‘Are we Contracting Satisfactory Security Services?’ from the Business Confederation of Security and Service Users (CEUSS). There will also be a session entitled ‘ERTZAINTZA’s Commitment to Innovation: some examples of impact’, while AES is organising the seminar ‘40 years of boosting the industry: global security, new challenges and demands’, which will be organised into four talks discussing the disappearance of cash in Spain, biometrics in private security, digitalisation in private security and EU Next
