8th INDIA HOMELAND SECURITY SUMMIT - Summit-cum-Excellence Awards

  • 27 Sep, 2023

India has a wide variety of cultures, languages, dialects, religions, ethnic groups, and subsects. The country shares approximately 7,000 km of maritime borders with seven neighbouring countries and has a coastline that covers more than 15,000 km. With such diversity, India has been facing a multitude of formidable security challenges both internal and external due to insurgency movements, ethnic conflicts religious fundamentalism etc. As a result of its geo-climate conditions, the country is also vulnerable to natural disasters. One of the most frequent phenomena is flooding, droughts, cyclones, earthquakes, and landslides. Apart from external influences affecting it, internal security has several constituents. The government therefore has a fundamental responsibility for law and order, the protection of its own assets, citizens, critical installations, border areas, industry, transport, and other infrastructure.

The country\'s law enforcement agencies should be equipped with cutting-edge technology to effectively manage its internal security. The private sector can help government agencies to safeguard our homeland by providing strategies for fighting domestic and international threats within the framework of evolving new-age challenges. To ensure that police forces are best equipped and able to defend themselves from all threats, they should encourage the adoption and use of new technologies. It is expected to keep our forces updated with the latest advances in science and technology, methods, and practices for the modernisation of our security system. India should support the use of advanced technology and equipment, as well as investment by the private sector in order to improve police operational efficiency.

Therefore, to discuss the emerging challenges and developments in the homeland security sector, ASSOCHAM is organizing “8th INDIA HOMELAND SECURITY SUMMIT: Managing New Age Challenges - Opportunities for Safety and Security Industry” ‘Summit-cum-Excellence Awards’ at 10:00 a.m. on September 27, 2023 at Hotel Shangri-La in New Delhi. The Summit will have a large participation by stakeholders of various segments of the security industry to discuss and find holistic solutions through the private sector participation towards efficient management of homeland security.
