The rise of new technologies is having a significant impact on the planning and implementation of<br />

security measures and the organization of the Olympic Games. How do security technologies fit into<br />

the planning of the various players involved (from central to decentralized levels, between national<br />

and international players, etc.)? What are the challenges, what are the opportunities?<br />

“The direction of history is towards ever greater use<br />

of machines and robots, while retaining control over<br />

the process of replacing man with machine.”<br />

As the Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games approach and digital transformation<br />

takes centre stage, Professor Guillaume Farde, affiliate Professor for the École<br />

d’affaires publiques at Sciences Po Paris, discusses the challenges and future of<br />

the homeland security sector<br />

<strong>Milipol</strong> Paris <strong>Daily</strong> spoke with the expert in an exclusive<br />

interview ahead of <strong>Milipol</strong> Paris <strong>2023</strong>.<br />

You will be moderating several round<br />

tables at <strong>Milipol</strong> Paris this year. Can<br />

you give us an overview of the main<br />

topics that will be discussed?<br />

Yes, of course, the Paris Olympic and<br />

Paralympic Games will be at the heart<br />

of the discussions with less than nine<br />

months to go. This theme will provide<br />

an opportunity to address the issues<br />

of public-private continuum, industry<br />

and digital technology, both in France<br />

and on a European scale. The panel of<br />

speakers will be a mix of practitioners<br />

and researchers, which should make<br />

for rich conversations and lively<br />

debates!<br />

What are the main challenges<br />

currently facing the homeland<br />

security sector?<br />

The challenges are twofold: there are<br />

the threats and there are the changes<br />

that these threats are bringing about.<br />

As far as threats are concerned, the<br />

terrorist threat has never diminished in<br />

intensity, but the return of the deadly<br />

attacks in Arras and Brussels means<br />

that protection and surveillance<br />

measures need to be stepped up. On<br />

another note, political radicalism is<br />

one of the threats that is escalating,<br />

forcing both companies and public<br />

authorities to take measures to counter<br />

the threats inherent in violent activism.<br />

As for the changes, these are mainly<br />

due to the digital transformation and<br />

the use of new technologies.<br />

What are your predictions for the<br />

future of the homeland security<br />

sector?<br />

This sector is set to become even<br />

more digital. Traditional technical<br />

security systems (video protection,<br />

access control, etc.) are becoming<br />

more complex and interconnected,<br />

which raises the stakes in terms<br />

of system reliability and cyber<br />

security.<br />

The direction of history is towards<br />

ever greater use of machines and<br />

robots, while retaining control over<br />

the process of replacing man with<br />

machine. Today we are debating the<br />

deployment of artificial intelligence,<br />

tomorrow we will be debating the<br />

rules of use and even how it should<br />

be regulated.<br />

Why is <strong>Milipol</strong> Paris such an<br />

important event for the sector?<br />

<strong>Milipol</strong> Paris is the benchmark<br />

exhibition for the security industry.<br />

Security, whether public or private,<br />

is a community and, as such, the<br />

sector of activity associated with it is<br />

characterised by its affinity. And when<br />

the community/affinity dimension<br />

is so strong, physical meetings and<br />

face-to-face conversations are key<br />

for conducting business. <strong>Milipol</strong> Paris<br />

is the epitome of this type of event.<br />

The whole community will be there,<br />

and it’s looking forward to getting<br />

together<br />

The evolving role of CSR in the security<br />

and safety landscape<br />

Nora Guillemin, President of NMPrévention and an expert consultant in<br />

occupational health and safety, spoke with the <strong>Milipol</strong> Paris <strong>Daily</strong> ahead of<br />

this year’s show<br />

In an exclusive interview, Nora Guillemin shares her insights<br />

into the role of CSR in the security/safety industry, the criteria<br />

for the <strong>Milipol</strong> Innovation Awards, and the emerging risks in<br />

the workplace. She emphasises the importance of safety in<br />

CSR and discusses the challenges and future trends for the<br />

industry.<br />

As a member of the jury for the<br />

<strong>Milipol</strong> Innovation Awards, you<br />

were able to judge this year’s new<br />

CSR category. What do you think<br />

is the place of CSR in the security/<br />

safety industry?<br />

While the question of the social<br />

implications of our actions and the<br />

duties they entail is not new, these<br />

days CSR is defined by the European<br />

Commission as the voluntary<br />

integration by companies of social<br />

and environmental concerns into<br />

their commercial activities and their<br />

relations with stakeholders.<br />

In other words, CSR is approached<br />

through the prism of sustainable<br />

development, with a strong focus<br />

on the main environmental pillar,<br />

alongside the other two pillars, social<br />

and economic.<br />

The question today is the absence<br />

of the issue of safety in CSR<br />

approaches, safety being integrated<br />

through the protection of employees<br />

(with the DUERP - single document<br />

risk analysis).<br />

However, I am convinced that safety<br />

can not only contribute to CSR, but<br />

is even essential to a comprehensive<br />

approach.<br />

Safety can contribute to a company’s<br />

overall performance, whether directly<br />

or indirectly, through prevention and<br />

anticipation.<br />

What criteria do you consider to be<br />

the most essential when assessing<br />

entries for the <strong>Milipol</strong> Innovation<br />

Awards?<br />

Social policy is a major criterion:<br />

respect for human rights, equality,<br />

inclusion, diversity and well-being<br />

in the workplace are all well-known<br />

terms that need to be genuinely<br />

implemented throughout a project.<br />

The environmental impact must also<br />

be taken into account, particularly<br />

in terms of energy consumption,<br />

waste management, greenhouse gas<br />

emissions and the conservation of<br />

natural resources.<br />

The principles of ethics, fairness,<br />

transparency and respect for rights<br />

and duties are also essential criteria.<br />

Today, obtaining certification or a<br />

label is a good way for a company to<br />

demonstrate its commitment to CSR.<br />

How do you think the CSR trend<br />

will develop in the industry in the<br />

future?<br />

It is bound to become increasingly<br />

important, given the ever-growing<br />

technological challenges.<br />

Ethics is one of the pillars of CSR<br />

which, in my opinion, should take<br />

on great importance in the security/<br />

safety industry.<br />

You work in risk management in the<br />

workplace. What new types of risk<br />

have emerged in recent years?<br />

The most obvious is cyber risk: with<br />

the development of technology and<br />

IT, companies have become obvious<br />

targets for cyber attacks and the theft<br />

of sensitive data.<br />

Regulatory compliance risks are<br />

also on the increase, with growing<br />

demands for corporate social<br />

responsibility in particular.<br />

It goes without saying that<br />

geopolitical risks cannot be ruled<br />

out for companies operating<br />

internationally, with a heightened risk<br />

in terms of employee safety.<br />

What are the main challenges<br />

facing the security industry?<br />

The main challenge is that of<br />

recruiting staff: skills and qualified<br />

manpower represent a considerable<br />

challenge<br />

“In an increasingly uncertain context,<br />

protecting people and infrastructures<br />

requires constantly updating resources<br />

and solutions.”<br />

Anne Frayssinet, Director of <strong>Milipol</strong> and security division events<br />

at Comexposium, spoke with <strong>Milipol</strong> <strong>Daily</strong> ahead of this year’s show<br />

in an exclusive interview<br />












The show director shares some of the event’s history<br />

and importance for the industry as well as the<br />

expectations for this year’s edition.<br />

<strong>Milipol</strong> is celebrating its 39th<br />

anniversary this year. Can you<br />

tell us briefly about the history<br />

of <strong>Milipol</strong> and its importance<br />

today?<br />

At the end of the 1970s,<br />

a number of French<br />

manufacturers supplying police<br />

equipment were concerned at<br />

the international level about the<br />

weakness of their commercial<br />

contacts. Unlike the aerospace<br />

and defence sectors, the<br />

homeland security industry in<br />

France did not have a means of<br />

promotion and communication<br />

on level with its importance. So<br />

the idea of organising a specific<br />

international trade show was<br />

born.<br />

In 1984, the first international<br />

trade show, <strong>Milipol</strong>, was<br />

organised in Paris.<br />

In 1995, under the aegis of the<br />

French Ministry of the Interior,<br />

the <strong>Milipol</strong> Paris exhibition<br />

took on a new and powerful<br />

dimension, becoming an official<br />

event.<br />

Since 2001, the <strong>Milipol</strong> brand<br />

has belonged to a group of<br />

companies (GIE <strong>Milipol</strong>),<br />

including PROTECOP, THALES,<br />

VISIOM and CIVIPOL. Today,<br />

Comexposium Security is<br />

responsible for organising the<br />

show.<br />

<strong>Milipol</strong> Paris is the world’s<br />

leading trade show dedicated to<br />

safety and homeland security. A<br />

veritable breeding ground for innovation,<br />

it offers cutting-edge technologies and<br />

services for the fight against terrorism<br />

and organised crime, border control,<br />

critical infrastructure protection, urban<br />

security, risk analysis and management,<br />

etc. Homeland security issues are<br />

topical all over the world. Threats are<br />

multiple and complex, and we need to<br />

develop the means to counter them.<br />

<strong>Milipol</strong> Paris, with its multitude of<br />

exhibitors and speakers, its series<br />

of conferences, workshops and TV<br />

programme, presents global solutions<br />

to combat all forms of crime.<br />

Over the years, the <strong>Milipol</strong> brand has<br />

also spread internationally, embodying<br />

a network of high-quality international<br />

trade shows covering the field of<br />

homeland security:<br />

1996:<br />

1 st edition of <strong>Milipol</strong> Qatar in Doha<br />

2015:<br />

1 st <strong>Milipol</strong> Asia-Pacific in Singapore<br />

<strong>2023</strong>:<br />

1 st edition of <strong>Milipol</strong> India in New Delhi<br />

What’s new at <strong>Milipol</strong> Paris this year?<br />

In an increasingly uncertain context,<br />

protecting people and infrastructures<br />

requires constantly updating resources<br />

and solutions.<br />

The <strong>Milipol</strong> trade show enables security<br />

professionals from all over the world<br />

(from both the public and private<br />

sectors) to find the equipment and<br />

technologies they need by bringing<br />

together all the solution providers,<br />

manufacturers and distributors in Paris.<br />

The <strong>2023</strong> edition will be the largest ever<br />

in terms of exhibitors and exhibition<br />

space, with an unprecedented growth of<br />

over 40% compared to the last edition…<br />

and we hope in terms of visitors and<br />

international delegations as well.<br />

Among the more than 1,100 exhibitors,<br />

65% are international this year.<br />

What’s more, there will be a lot of<br />

innovation on the stands and a lot of<br />

content on offer at the show. Innovation<br />

will be highlighted in particular through<br />

the <strong>Milipol</strong> Innovation Awards, trophies<br />

aimed at rewarding the best innovations<br />

by manufacturers present at <strong>Milipol</strong> in<br />

terms of products, equipment, services,<br />

solutions and business models. The<br />

trophies are awarded in 6 categories,<br />

with a category dedicated to CSR<br />

initiatives added for the <strong>2023</strong> edition.<br />

The awards ceremony will take place<br />

at the show on Tuesday 14 November<br />

at 14:00.<br />

For the first time this year, the start-up<br />

area will host start-ups from the Generate<br />

by GICAT accelerator, highlighting<br />

the entrepreneurial dynamism of the<br />

security industry. Around thirty startups<br />

will be present and will have seven<br />

minutes to showcase their innovations<br />

on the “innovation stage”.<br />

We will also have a <strong>Milipol</strong> TV show in<br />

partnership with S&D magazine for the<br />

first time this year.<br />

And for the first time this year, we will be<br />

hosting dynamic demonstrations by the<br />

Civil Protection, DOPC/BI, GIGN and<br />

the RAID during the event<br />

MILIPOL PARIS <strong>2023</strong><br />



The forecasted numbers for <strong>Milipol</strong> Paris this year<br />

indicate the show will break its previous record in<br />

terms of visitors and exhibitors.<br />

The 2019 edition of <strong>Milipol</strong> Paris<br />

counted over 32,000 visitors<br />

and this year’s show is set to top<br />

that number. All areas of public<br />

and industrial security will be<br />

represented: law enforcement,<br />

special forces, protection of<br />

industrial and sensitive sites,<br />

security of public places, security<br />

of transport infrastructures,<br />

anti-terrorism, private security,<br />

civil security, data protection<br />

and cyber security, etc. It is<br />

also important for the event to<br />

maintain a balance between<br />

visitors from the public and<br />

private sectors.<br />



• 58% private (Manufacturers,<br />

distributors, service or<br />

consultancy companies, etc.)<br />

• 42% public (Ministries and<br />

State bodies, institutions,<br />

administrations, etc.)<br />

• 66% had a role in the<br />

purchasing process<br />

• 57% came to <strong>Milipol</strong> Paris 2021<br />

with investment or purchasing<br />

plans<br />

• 92% found solutions and<br />

contacts during the event to<br />

help them realise their projects<br />

This year around 160 international<br />

delegations are expected to<br />

attend the event. To achieve this,<br />

<strong>Milipol</strong> Paris is working closely<br />

with the partnership office of the<br />

DCIS - Ministry of the Interior<br />

and Overseas France and the<br />

network of French homeland<br />

security representatives around<br />

the world<br />
