Further, according to the Program, the work of speakers and participants has begun!
Day One of the Congress (06/06/2019)
The first session of the Congress, the theme of which was “A ray of light on the dark side of the planet named “BUSINESS”, was devoted to the real state of affairs in the field of business security in Ukraine and in a comparative analysis with other countries of the world.
The first speaker was Oleksiy ODERIY (Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the Congress, Vice-President of the International Association of Investigators and Experts in Crisis Situations (MAREKS), Doctor of Law, Professor of the Donetsk Law Institute of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, Director of the Institute for Research on Business and Personal Protection Problems. A world-famous scientist in in his topic "Through terms to ... misunderstanding (what we are talking about, what we are working on, and what it means)" deeply revealed one of the main problems of the security market and the protection of business structures: very often, behind illiterate terminology, pseudo-executors of business and individual tasks are hidden "They skillfully substitute concepts, manipulate terms, mislead those who need action and help. Professor A. ODERIUS has reasoned and clearly identified the realities in the business protection markets. Counter speeches of the participants showed full compliance of the speaker's position with the realities. The speech of the first speaker set the right direction for all further work of the Congress and once again showed the main vector - the discussion of practical aspects on the examples of the real activities of speakers and participants.
The next speaker logically continued the development of the topic - Viktor GVOZD (President of the Independent Analytical Center for Geopolitical Research "Borisfen Intel", lieutenant general of the reserve, doctor of military sciences). In his topic "Intelligence for Business (Professional View of Today's Realities and Tomorrow's Perspectives)" the speaker brought a virtually sensational component to the direction of solving business problems. There is no clearly defined concept of “business intelligence” in Ukraine. In his presentation, the speaker showed to the smallest detail how this direction can work if professionals are involved. It should be noted that such professionals from the Independent Analytical Center for Geopolitical Research "Borisfen Intel" and the "International Association of Investigators and Experts in Crisis Situations" are developing appropriate joint products for the business protection market.
Following the speech of Viktor GVOZD, according to the established tradition of holding congresses, the best partners of the International Association of Investigators and Experts in Crisis Situations were awarded. According to the Association, the best investigator of Ukraine in 2018-2019. Alexey ODERIY, Vice-President of MAREX, Director of the Institute for Research on the Protection of Business and Personality, became the Vice-President of MAREX. His investigations in 2018 and 2019 became the subject of admiration not only among colleagues and clients, but also attracted the attention of national and international media. The result was television programs dedicated to the work of Alexey ODERIA and the MAREX team in the interests of customers from Ukraine and the USA. At the same time, much - professional and effective - was left behind the scenes for confidentiality reasons. The certificate of the best investigator was presented by Viktor GVOZD. Congratulations to Aleksey ODERIA on the high appreciation of colleagues, partners and clients.

Without any prior approval, the speech of the guest of the Congress - Jiri NOVY (Region Operations Director PINKERTON Company) turned out to be a continuation of the speeches of the previous speakers. The key was that Mr. J.NOVY actually confirmed the correctness of the judgments of the previous speakers. Using the examples of the activities of the world famous company "PINKERTON", our guest showed that for private detectives (investigators) and other experts in the field of security today there are completely new tasks that are subject to rethinking and further changing directions in work. The segment of solving problems not only of an individual (client, customer), but also a field of work in the interests of medium and large businesses has long appeared and is developing. In his presentation "The Future of Risk and Security Management Services (The Path from Sectional to Holistic Approach)", Jiri NOVY showed how professionals work in the global security markets. Currently, a package of documents is being developed on the proposal of cooperation between Ukrainian experts - investigators with the "PINKERTON" Company.
Session 1 of the first day of the Congress would not have been complete and would have seemed declarative if the second part of the speakers had not taken part in it. Namely, representatives of national and international business.
The construction industry in any country, including Ukraine, is one of the economic - forming components. The fact that the leaders of the construction market showed particular interest in participating in the Business Protection Congress is a significant indicator that the time has come for close cooperation between business structures and professionals in the field of their real protection.
The next speaker on this line was Victor LESHCHINSKY (Chairman of the National Expert and Construction Alliance of Ukraine, professor of KNUB, head of the "PROEKSP" Company, Kyiv)
In his sharp speech on the topic "Actual risks in business development (practical professional experience on the example of the construction market)", the speaker showed the real situation - when a business engaged in solving the main tasks (promotion to specialized markets, gaining customer confidence, making a profit) does not take into account risks and problems that exist in any activity. It was the understanding that professionals should deal with the prevention, identification and localization of risks and problems for business that formed the basis of the speaker's speech. The logical continuation of the speech was the unexpected proposal of Viktor LESHCHINSKY right in the Congress hall to sign a Memorandum of Cooperation between the National Expert Construction Alliance of Ukraine and the International Association of Crisis Investigators and Experts. The document was signed and certified by the heads of these structures.

Sheikh Imad Abu Alrub (President of the Ukrainian-Arab Business Council) became a speaker from the side of international business with investment and organizational interests in Ukraine. The Council includes business contacts from 22 Arab states. The topic of the speech is more timely than ever for today's realities: "Actual problems of investments from Arab countries in the Ukrainian economy." In each of the countries there are potential investors who are ready to invest in the Ukrainian economy on fair and transparent terms. Sheikh Imad Abu Alrub concretely and convincingly showed the existing problems of this promising process. The speaker highlighted the main areas in which investors need the help of professionals in the protection and security of business. He was supported by the representatives of many Arab states present in the hall. Some of them, right in the Congress hall, asked for help in certain areas of cooperation between Ukraine and the Arab world. Based on the speeches of Sheikh Imad Abu Alroub and representatives of the Arab states, the leaders of the Independent Analytical Center for Geopolitical Studies "Borisfen Intel" and the International Association of Investigators and Crisis Experts decided to prepare an analytical document with proposals to the relevant ministries of Ukraine.

2nd session of the first working day of the Congress with the title “The path to success. How a business can get through it without losses” was dedicated to the speeches of practitioners – professionals in the field of security and business protection from different countries.
When solving problems of a person and business, chaos and unprofessionalism only cause harm. Work can be effective if structures are involved that have specialists with specialized training, experience and a set of capabilities, specialists with ethical and generally recognized principles. George HIRTLE (Vice Secretary General IKD) Austria spoke about this. His presentation on the topic: “EU. Standards used by investigators in European countries to ensure the protection of business and individuals” showed all directions in the development of specialized approaches to solving client problems. The call to follow the standards developed in the EU, their expansion, optimization and implementation was received very positively by all participants of the Congress.
The next practitioner who was ready to share his experience with the participants of the Congress was a well-known specialist in the creation of business protection systems - Jakov RADOMISLENSKY (JR Security Consulting CEO) Latvia, Riga. His topic "From Security to Troubleshooting (the thorny path of a professional who is able to solve business problems)" became a discovery for many participants. The speaker showed by his own example how painstaking work leads to mutual understanding with a potential client about the need to protect business in our unpredictable world. There is no doubt that with Yakov, colleagues from MAREX will have many interesting projects and mutually beneficial products ahead in various areas of international security. The concept of "troubleshooting" was increasingly heard in the discussion of the participants. Apparently, specialists of this profession will soon appear on the Ukrainian business and personal security markets.
The theme of “troubleshooting” was also supported by our longtime colleague and friend from Turkey, Seyt-Abla IBRAGIMOV (International consulting company “EURASIA”) Turkey. His presentation titled “Turkish Troubleshooting (Features of Cooperation between Ukrainian Businessmen and Partners from Eastern States)” was aimed at changing the world of business security. Trends in business protection technologies go beyond the standard and generally accepted approaches. Innovations in work have long become a priority in the work of specialists who are really capable of solving business problems in different countries. The examples of the speaker and the messages of the organizers of the Congress about the joint work with Seyt-Abla IBRAGIMOV confirmed the information of the guest speaker.
In the meantime, it was the turn of the speech of the representative of the IT-sphere in matters of business protection. Andrey PERTSYUKH (IT laboratory, architect) Ukraine, Kyiv, presented exceptionally innovative approaches to the realities of effective work in such subtle, and often incomprehensible to the uninitiated, areas as IT security technologies. The speech was filled with specific terms, but the main meaning of the speech was very clear: "WiFi" is evil, and one must be extremely careful with this evil so as not to lose information, business, and sometimes freedom and life. The result of a realistic approach to the profession was that at the end of the first day of the Congress, two dozen participants remained to “attack” Andrey with practical questions in an informal setting. The conversation lasted until almost 9 pm, when many of those who attended the event were already at home. That is the strength of the Congress - the best of the best practitioners have gathered. And it was impossible to miss communication with each of them. It should be added that Andrey PERTSYUKH is a representative (architect) in the powerful Company of Alexander GALUSHCHENKO "IT-Laboratory"
Second day of the Congress (06/07/2019)
The second day of the Congress began with the fact that the organizers had to solve not a critical, but an emergency situation. When words and deeds are at odds with individuals, and promises turn into an empty phrase, such situations happen. If a team is able to solve business and individual problems in different countries, then “surviving” someone’s optionality and professional emptiness is a matter of a few minutes. Moreover, the highest business level of the speakers and the formed program of the Congress made it possible to respond flexibly to minor changes in the order of speeches.
The second day successfully started work according to the timing of the Session 3 plan (Theme: Small planet with big opportunities, about which little is known). The session was moderated by the 1st Vice-President of the MAREKS Association Sergey SENIK. One of the high-class professional practitioners invited to the Congress was Igor VINNITSKY (lawyer, adviser and head of the business security practice of the law firm GOLAW). The GOLAW company occupies a leading position in the market of legal protection of business not only in Ukraine, but also in many countries of the world. It should be noted that the head of the GOLAW law firm, Valentin GVOZDIY, was also invited to the Congress, who, unfortunately, due to being busy, could not participate in the forum. Igor VINNITSKY in his presentation on the topic "Investigation: practice, experience, realities" revealed such areas of business protection that were little known to the participants, such as: 1. The essence of own security systems in business structures; 2. Real, not imaginary - threats to business; 3. Ways of obtaining, implementing information through its legalization and many others.
Further on the Program, a speech was planned by a great friend of the organizers of the Congress - a Professional (that's right: with a capital letter) in matters of private investigation from the USA - EDUARD KUSAYEV, President of UNIPRO, Inc. (UNION OF INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONALS (UNION OF INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONALS IN THE FIELD OF BUSINESS AND PERSONAL SECURITY), independent expert and consultant in the field of immigration security, host of the author's program “Take Note” on FBSN, Atlanta, Georgia, USA) Everyone who knows Edward personally or at work, were alarmed that this strong-willed man, on his way from Atlanta to Ukraine, felt bad in transit Turkey. Until the last moment, regardless of the state of health, Eduard had the hope of coming to Ukraine, to our Congress. Unfortunately, the situation turned out to be stronger, and Edward had to return to Atlanta. For information: today everything is in order with Eduard's health, and the projects implemented by Eduard in the international security arena (including in Ukraine) continue to develop. The presentation of the international Global network of coordinators in different countries of the world is approaching on the basis of the non-governmental, non-profit structure UNIPRO, created in the USA. But we will tell about this separately and in detail on the pages of the websites of the members of our Association.
The speeches of the practitioners were continued by Yuriy KOHUT (General Director of Sidcon LLC (Ukraine), Director of the Bureau for Combating Commercial Crimes and Corruption of ICC Ukraine). The topic of his discussion paper was with an intriguing title: "There is no such information that is not there (on the possibilities for protecting business without intermediaries, international and national experience)". It should be noted that the speaker has many years of personal experience on the topic of his speech. A clear, well-considered and concrete presentation of the capabilities of competitive intelligence in national and international security markets showed that Ukrainian professionals are in no way inferior to the capabilities of their foreign colleagues, and even surpass them in their perseverance and ability to use exclusive sources.
Already according to the established methodology of holding the Congress, a professional from Ukraine was replaced by a colleague, a professional from the Arab world Irfan FAROOQ (DIRECTOR
AL ATTA CONSULTATIONS & ADMIN STUDIES EST, UAE, Pakistan), who continued the topic of practical approaches to collecting information in the interests of business. Again, based on personal experience, Irfan FAROOQ showed how profile specialists in the Middle East really work in the interests of clients from all continents. It should be added that at the time of writing this report, negotiations are ongoing between individual members of the Association and the speaker's company. At the end of the presentation, Irfan FAROOQ, unexpectedly for everyone, arranged a personal drawing of prizes from his company for the participants of the Congress and later announced his desire to become a member of the MAREX Association. Business from Arab countries is one of the priorities and interests of using the possibilities of the Congress organizers.

By the end of the 2nd day, when, it would seem, interesting topics should have dried up and fatigue should have come - the dynamics of speeches, the sharpness of topics, practical innovations and business surprises only increased ... Session 4 began. Its topic was: "The ban on theory! Only hands-on experience"
The next speaker was Oleg NAZAROV (PhD in Psychology, Associate Professor, member of the International Society of Polygraph Examiners) Kyiv. A new Ukrainian-American lie detection project was presented: EyeDetect is a modern technology for detecting hidden information. Its economic and scientifically based advantages were revealed when used in crisis situations. At the same time, the experimental stand with EyeDetect equipment in the Congress hall accepted everyone who wanted to test themselves for honesty. The moderator of the Congress, taking into account the variety of forms and methods for determining human "untruth", suggested that the speaker take part in a possible "battle" - a kind of competition between representatives of different areas of lie detection. Oleg NAZAROV promised to take part in such an event, if it takes place.
The next speaker was Romas ZALECKIS ("JSC RIMANO BIURAS") Lithuania, Vilnius, who created an interactive discussion in his topic "Lie detection in business (Polygraph? Profiling? Hypnosis?)". Piloted as "social media insider recruitment," the innovation prompted a flurry of questions that received no less interesting answers. I must say that Romas is a representative of the long-term partners of our association - "JSC RIMANO BIURAS", which is led by the well-known Olegas RIMANAS - private detective No. 1 from Lithuania. In his team, all work is based on a creative approach, taking into account the latest innovations in the field of protecting the interests of individuals and businesses. The speech of Romas ZALECKIS was no exception at our Congress.
Practical aspects of combating illegal outdoor surveillance (“surveillance”) were revealed to the participants by the following speaker - Oleg DIDYCH (President of the NGO “Association “Seven”). Like other speakers at the Congress, Oleg has more than twenty years of experience in the structures of special services. How to use existing knowledge and experience within the framework of the law in the interests of protecting business - and the speaker told in his speech on the topic: "Invisible threats to business."
A long intrigue for all participants of the Congress was the expectation of the so-called “secret speaker” with the no less intriguing topic “Paradoxes of one investigation: “maniac consultations” (shocking facts, unique video, unexpected analogies with business protection issues)”
The speaker was Doctor of Law, Professor of the Donetsk Law Institute of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Oleksiy ODERIY. The intrigue was revealed very simply. Aleksey, among the few specialists, at one time was admitted to the program for studying the behavioral situations of murderers - maniacs detained in different places. Unique videos - shots from Alexey's conversations with these non-humans, their surveys and psychological research accompanied the topic of interest to everyone at the Congress. Analogies were presented related to the need to study the people with whom one has to communicate on the roads of life. In a short report, there is no way to reveal all the subtleties of the speech, but it seems that the topic will be continued by separate events with the participation of Alexei.
Next, according to the Congress Program, the time has come to present products that have not been introduced by anyone before in the business and personal protection markets.
The speech with a dynamic presentation was started by a representative of Hyperion Protection Services (note that the expert of this company is Evgeniy SOLOSHCHENKO (International Coordinator in IBSSA, President in the NGO "Professional Association of Special Protection Services"). potential client, namely the UMBRA Logistic complex.The technical system detects and analyzes all license plates that appear on the route.The speaker also presented a separate stand, which clearly demonstrated the capabilities of the complex.
The development of a unique product was proposed by Natalia GARASHCHENKO (Associate Professor of the Business Strategy Department, KNEU, Head of the Club of Economists of Ukraine) Kyiv. The innovation of the proposal is that, according to the speaker, preventing, identifying and localizing risks in business only with the tools of private security forces is already yesterday. Today and in the future, a complex must work that necessarily includes economic strategies in the safe development of business. These strategies should be based on the practical experience of the complex cooperation of economists with investigators and experts in crisis situations. At the time of writing, the product revealed at the Congress is essentially being tested in several large companies. Specialists of the Club of Economists of Ukraine and the Group of Companies "International Business Protection Holding" (IBP HOLDING) participate in its implementation
The continuation of the presentations of innovations in protecting the interests of business and the individual was a BLIZ INTERVIEW, in which guests of the Congress from 4 countries took part at once: Maja VEITH (Law Firm Erede Universal, Erbenermittlungen, Hamburg, Germany), Vladimir PALEY (Historian, archivist, genealogist, specialist Information Systems Founder and owner of the Paley.info genealogical agency, Alex AUSLENDER (private investigator, member of the IRA detective bureau, WAD member, Israel). Interview on the topic: "HAMBURGer, bringing happiness to the client and income to the performer, (haute cuisine of a new international project from lawyers, genealogists and investigators)" was conducted by the moderator of the Congress from Ukraine - Igor Tsminskiy (President of the International Association of Investigators and Experts in Crisis Situations (MAREKS). All four participants of the interview presented to the guests of the Congress a project of international search for heirs in different countries of the world with the intricacies of practical joint experience.The project has passed preliminary testing in Ukraine, Germany, the USA and Israel, and can be presented for implementation to potential clients.But this is a separate topic that has development among MAREKS participants and its foreign partners.
All emotions, new knowledge, business contacts, meetings and prospects for cooperation cannot fit into the dry lines of a short report. There is a lot of work ahead, many projects and areas of international and national cooperation. The organizers of the Congress, members of the "International Association of Investigators and Experts in Crisis Situations" are always open for cooperation with those individuals and organizations who wish to honestly, professionally and businesslike participate in projects to protect the interests of business and individuals.
