Alongside the exhibition, visitors joined the high-level conference program to gather information about security for data storage, unauthorised wireless communication or effective organisational counter surveillance.

The chairman of the conference was Mr. Enock Makanga, who also introduced the new powerful Kenyan security association PROSAK (Protective & Safety Association of Kenya).
