Following the successful 14th ICGS3, we have much pleasure in announcing the 15th International conference on Global Security, Safety & Sustainability.
2020 will be remembered as a year of COVID-19 pandemic year with a profound impact on our lives and challenging times for governments around the world with technology as a backbone of tools to assist us to work remotely while in self isolations and in total lockdown. Every individual and organization are faced with the challenges of the adoption of technological change and understand that nothing will be the same for some time after and even when normality resumes. AI, blockchain, machine learning, IoT, IoMT, IIoT all are tested and applied at a very rapid turnaround as we go through the pandemic day after day. However, all this transformation can bring many associated risks regarding data, such as privacy, transparency, exploitation, and ownership.
The advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AI), coupled with the prolificacy of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices are creating smart societies that are interconnected. The expansion of Big Data and volumetric metadata generated and collated by these mechanisms not only give greater depth of understanding but as change is coming at an unprecedented pace covid19 is drives the cultural changes and the public sector innovations to a new height of responsibilities.
Space exploration and satellite, drone and UAV technology have travelled a long way in recent years and some may debate that we are in the midst of a revolution; in terms of development and the increasing number of these devices being launched. But with this revolutionary progress, it presents itself with new challenges in terms of governance. For example, as satellites sit in a global sphere it makes space governance a complicated dynamic with many entities and stakeholders contributing to their own requirements and not necessarily taking into account all aspects or other factors. It opens up many questions regarding control, data, privacy, security, and so on. Therefore, innovative solutions for a sustainable future into the pressing issues facing space governance today is important in terms of (i) what the current challenges are (ii) how do these devices impact society and (iii) what the potential negative consequences.
Further development and analysis of defence tactics and countermeasures are also needed fast to understand security vulnerabilities which will be exploited by cybercriminals by identifying newer technologies that can aid in protecting and securing data with a range of supporting processes to provide a higher level of cyber resilience.
The ethical implications of connecting the physical and digital worlds, and presenting the reality of a truly interconnected society, presents the realization of the concept of smart societies in reality.
This Annual International Conference is an established platform in which security, safety, and sustainability issues can be examined from several global perspectives through dialogue between academics, students, government representatives, chief executives, security professionals, and research scientists from the United Kingdom and from around the globe.
The 2 day virtual conference will focus on the challenges of complexity, the rapid pace of change, and risk/opportunity issues associated with the 21st-century lifestyle, systems, and infrastructures.

“I chose Northumbria because the AACSB double accreditation for the Business School was attractive to me. The ability to develop my language skills was another element which I liked, I wanted to improve my English and work with a diverse group of people. I most enjoy being in an environment which is so diverse as it gives you more vocational skills. Participating in group work has encouraged me to adapt my learning style and ability to work with a wider range of people. The teachers here are very open and encourage us to keep in touch with them regarding our work.”
