Datatag ID Limited, the power behind the official CESAR scheme, will be exhibiting and sponsoring the seventh CITS event at JCB World Headquarters in Rocester, Staffordshire. The event is to take place during the morning of 12 November at the impressive JCB facilities.

The Combined Industries Theft Solutions group, (CITS) is a non-profit organisation. The Conference and exhibition is totally free to attend, and is aimed at CEO's, MD's, Directors, Owners, Presidents, VP's, Security Directors and Senior Managers within the construction industry.

With criminals employing increasing levels of technology and techniques to attack companies operating in the Construction and Utilities sector, it is getting harder to protect companies, profits and reputation. As such the CITS Board who Datatag are proud members of have gathered Industry leading experts to present the latest strategies, ideas, practises and services to combat the audacious criminals. CITS like the CESAR Scheme is affiliated to the Home office and Plant Theft Action Group.

This year’s event will be broad in scope under the title ‘’Scams that trash your bottom line’’

A range of specialist speakers will cover the gamut of crime within the industry. This includes Datatag MD Kevin Howells who will cover the developments and updates of CESAR and the impact the scheme has had on theft including the issue of Fuel theft.

There are now approximately 160,000 machines protected by CESAR, The Datatag supplied CESAR security system works by giving each piece of equipment a unique and permanent ‘fingerprint’ using a mix of state of the art security marking technology that includes tamper evident triangular registration plates, Radio-frequency identification (RFID) transponders, forensic liquid DNA and microscopic Datadots®. CESAR is a proven deterrent against theft and an invaluable aid in recovery. According to police statistics CESAR registered machines are 4 times less likely to be stolen and 6 times more likely to be recovered than unregistered machines.

The list of manufacturers that have adopted CESAR reads like a veritable who’s who of leading suppliers.

In October 2013 a new construction and agricultural machine provenance check service, developed by Datatag and HPI, was launched (at JCB) under the CESAR brand. The new service provides ‘Automotive-style checks’ in conjunction with HPI, the pioneer and leader in vehicle history checks. The new CESAR branded provenance check, the first of its kind for agricultural and construction equipment, provides a new level of assurance whenever a used machine is bought or sold. The CESAR provenance check has been developed by Datatag and HPI at the behest of the insurance and asset finance industry which has enjoyed the benefits of accurate history checks for cars and vans for many years, but which had lacked a reliable provenance checking service for agricultural and construction equipment, until the launch of this new service.

This year’s CITS event will also be holding an exhibition in conjunction with the conference where leading suppliers of security related products and services will be on hand to discuss latest developments.

CESAR security experts will be on hand throughout the event to discuss CESAR protection for equipment and CESAR assurance when buying or selling machinery.
