SICUR 2022 will again bring together the professionals in the comprehensive security sector from the 22 to 25 February at IFEMA MADRID, for an especially significant event for all of the agents who are part of this industry, focusing on strongly promoting and boosting sector activity.

SICUR CYBER will offer a program of conferences, workshops and business presentations aimed at raising awareness and informing on cybersecurity in the world of security, and to draw attention to the needs of the security industry and its progress on this issue
Along with the commercial side, another of SICUR’s advantages is its potential as a reference for knowledge.

As an introduction, ASELF will talk about Operative and Operational Security for Fire Fighting and about the regulatory framework; CEPREVEN/APTB will offer a conference on lessons learned and APICI/TECNIFUEGO will talk about innovation and new challenges. Regarding workplace safety, there will be a conference on the competences of public health and workplace health on controlling pandemics, organised by ANEPA, ASPREN and AESPLA; new challenges in occupational hazard prevention will be discussed: Mental Health/ Remote Work/ Digitalisation by the MAPFRE FOUNDATION and AESPLA, and ASEPAL and the MAPFRE FOUNDATION will offer a conference on the SDGs and Workplace Safety, Health and Wellbeing. The SICUR FORUM will also offer a conference organised by AES, on Security.
The SICUR RESILIENCE area, co-organised with PESI – Plataforma Tecnológica Española de Seguridad Industrial- will have an exhibition area that will bring together a variety of companies and organisations who are partners and collaborators with PESI, who will showcase their new products and technological developments on security and resilience; it will host the biennial Congress S2R (Safety Security & Resilience Research) and the Awards S2R Innovation and Women and Security Management.
As in every edition, the SICUR INNOVATION GALLERY will show a preview of the research and development lines that companies are working on.
