Counter-Terrorism Chief to speak at BMF Conference

Richard Walton, a former Commander at New Scotland Yard will speak at the BMF All-Industry Conference in Dubrovnik in June.

Richard led London’s Counter Terrorism Command both during the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012.

He has spent the majority of his 30 year policing career in the counter-terrorism field and was Head of the Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command (SO15) between 2011-2016. In 2015, he also featured in the ‘Debrett’s 500’ list of most influential people in Britain in recognition of his contribution to countering terrorism.

Since leaving the Met, Richard founded Counter Terrorism Global, a company that facilitates the design and implementation of solutions for countering terrorism and extremism to public, private and non- government sectors. He has also provided advice to governments in Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

BMF CEO, John Newcomb, said: “Our Conference theme is Building Excellence and will explore “excellence” from many different angles. Businesses have to protect themselves against all manner of different threats – including many, particularly in the cyber-world, that no-one would have imagined just a few years ago. I’m looking forward to a fascinating presentation and I have no doubt that we will learn a great deal by discovering how to see everyday events through Richard’s eyes.”

The sold-out BMF All Industry Conference takes place in Dubrovnik from 13-16 June 2019. Further details are available on the Conference website,
