A unique experience this year!! Students were vetted and cleared for a tour of an important secure area at the airport. Transportation and cargo security is big business today and students were given a brief presentation and a short tour of the cargo area. We were able to meet with security professionals and see customs officers hard at work.
This year I was able to secure an invitation for students from the Hong Kong Security Association and ASIS to a computer security conference held by Axis Communications. Axis is a worldwide corporation which also has offices right next to us in Chelmsford!
The theme of the presentation was the need for standardization of IP protocols in the area of convergence with physical security systems.
Students were also invited to attend a mixer hosted by both organizations after the conference to network and share experiences.
We arrived at the University late on Tuesday after a layover in Heathrow International Airport in London. The new route worked out well and offered the least amount of flight time which helped all involved to minimize jet lag.
Here is the entrance to the University which is locaced in Kowloon. Students are excited to check in and start our cultural excursions.
