Ex-MI6 Chief Sir Alex Younger is one of the first announced international headliners, speaking for the first time in the UAE as a guest speaker.
Younger joined the United Kingdom’s Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), also known as MI6, in 1991 and served as a diplomat and undercover operative. He was appointed Chief or ‘C’ of MI6 in 2014 and retired in 2020, making him the longest-serving chief in 50 years.
He will be sharing his unique insights as the best minds in the industry gather between the 16-18 January 2022 at Intersec’s ‘Global Security Leaders’ Summit.
Sir Alex said: “I am delighted to be speaking for the first time in the UAE at Intersec, and at a time when conversations for the Security and Safety industry has been thrust into the spotlight from recent global events. The Middle East has always fascinated me – the ever-shifting intricate dynamics of geopolitical relationships in the region and the impact they have internationally create a complex security landscape that I have been immersed in for much of my career. For this industry, Intersec offers the most valuable platform for knowledge exchange on the protection of citizens from existing and future threats and I look forward to sharing my perspective on a topic which remains a global priority.”
Ethical hacker, Freaky Clown (FC) will also be attending as a headline speaker at the event and will give deep insights into the world of cybercrime.
FC brings a truly unique perspective to Intersec’s inaugural Cyber Security Lab conference, where he will talk about how cyber criminals circumnavigate access controls, how governments and organisations can identify their cyber weaknesses and what they can do to improve their security.
FC said: “At a time when governments, individuals and organisations the world over are experiencing a steep increase in cyber security threats, I am in a unique position to be able to share inside information on the very people that they are being attacked by. I can help them become more aware, more secure and more capable of defending themselves and look forward to doing so at such a unique event like Intersec which brings the industry’s most important stakeholders together under one roof”.
