With the events rapidly approaching, planning for 2012 moves into more concrete stages, with experience of the Winter Olympics, the World Cup and the Commonwealth Games all playing a part in the organisation of security.
Speakers at the conference include Pauline Neville-Jones, home office minister for counter terrorism and security, and Chris Allison, the Metropolitan Police's assistant commissioner for the Olympic Games.
Topics up for discussion include continuity planning, games-time resilience, and how the private sector can contribute to a safe Olympics.
David Evans, the BSIA's project director for 2012, said: "The 2012 Olympics and its ongoing legacy represent a significant business opportunity for BSIA members, and early engagement with the planning process is an essential part of ensuring the private sector's involvement in providing a safe and secure Olympics."
In February this year, the Olympic Games security minister, Lord West, told security industry representatives that the development of security was "truly formidable", info4security.com reported.
