DIPS Annual Conference 2017

DIPS Annual Conference 2017

On Wednesday 19th April 2017, the Distribution Industry Partnership Centre Scotland and the Scottish Business Resilience Centre hosted the “BREXIT: Informing Business Before and Beyond” Conference at Hampden Park in Glasgow. We would like to express our gratitude to BSI and Sealock for supporting this event and bringing with them a wealth of knowledge and advice.

Invited guests were treated to a drinks reception at the Donald Malcolm Heritage Centre on the Tuesday evening and we would like to thank Andrew Malcolm and Derek Milne for their hospitality.

The conference was opened by Humza Yousaf MSP, Minister of Transport and the Islands, who provided the ministerial address and we were delighted to be able to have a much sought after question and answer session where he answered questions relating to road infrastructure around ports and also the new Queensferry Crossing.  

The BSI provided a detailed input on supply chain threats and risks including terrorist threats and the migrant crisis. Sealock then followed this with a detail of the different products on the market which can assist in supply chain security.

During the lunch break the “CART Security Guide” was launched. This is a security guide which was compiled by DIPS, RHA, DHL, RSA, Motorway Buddy, NaVCIS and Maple. A copy of the guide was available to all delegates. For more information on this contact Stewart Hurry.

The afternoon saw the Scottish Business Resilience Centre’s ethical hacking students and CiSP Co-ordinator Graham Bye provide an input on cyber security do’s and don’ts, CiSP and Cyber Essentials. 

Following the cyber input, Neil Amner from Anderson Strathern LLP and President of Glasgow Chamber of Commerce chaired a workshop which saw delegates work through a number of questions relating to logistics, procurement and shipping and how Brexit will impact this.

The event was closed by Ronnie Megaughin the Deputy CEO of the Scottish Business Resilience Centre.
