From Brunei Times:
PARTICIPANTS at the BRIDEX 2009 Conference yesterday were given an opportunity to scrutinise and examine the full spectrum of emerging threats and how to manage and handle so-called non-traditional threats from a global perspective.
This was presented to them via a series of keynote addresses and panel discussions which focused on four key themes of relevance to defence forces and national security agencies in Southeast Asia’s fast-changing defence and security environment.
The four key themes are Emerging and Future Security Threats in Southeast Asia; C4ISR and the Evolution of Network Centric Capabilities; Homeland Security and Border Protection; and Application of C4I to Peacekeeping, Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief Operations.
Deemed as the premier defence and security event in Southeast Asia, BRIDEX 2009, which officially begins today, commenced with a one-day International Conference yesterday.
