The security week: Awards, technology, and security dogs

Welcome to this somewhat premature I4S Weekly newsletter. We’re early this week because of the Good Friday public holiday here in the UK, and quite possibly wherever you are too. Nice.

The finalists for this year’s IFSEC Security Industry Awards have been announced. Click here to find out who made it, and to book your table for the event. Skills for Security is running its Apprentice Skills Challenge at the show. Check out the details here.

We’ve also got IFSEC preview information from Integrated Design, Grandstream, Commend, Barix, Winsted, iLoq, and many more, on our dedicated IFSEC news pages. Extensive stuff.

And in a bumper week of show news, IFSEC organisers UBM Live announced a brand new exhibition: IFSEC South India, taking place next March in Bangalore. It follows the success of IFSEC India. That’s just super.

The Home Office is using a £2m cash injection to help catch burglars with new technology – including so-called ‘trap houses’; G4S has signed a major contract with GlaxoSmithKline; and FM giant MITIE has launched a security profile and risk calculator, imaginatively called SPARC.

Our CCTV Doctor Alistair Enser popped in to answer a reader question on shed surveillance – and our IP expert Phil Doyle was back in his guise as The Networker.

Also today we’ve got an important, landmark article on canine security and the possible implications of its unionisation.

Security charity Hear4U has been relaunched – wisely, in my opinion – as the Security Benevolent Fund. Read about the good work it does here.

Make sure you head over to Jobs for Security for all the latest security jobs – and to advertise your own vacancies. It’s tremendous fun for all the family.

And here’s a panda taking revenge on a tree which done him wrong, or something.

Sharks, MI6, doctors, swine flu

Info4security is packed to the rafters today with quality security news action. It’s causing the same levels of excitement as would occur if a shark were let loose in the canals of Venice.

Let’s begin with national security, shall we? OK then. How about a story on the new chief of MI6? That seems to fit the bill.

And UKB Security is claiming that the current recession has seen an increase in demand for domestic security installations. Remarkable!

The CCTV Doctor is in the house – and this time he has regenerated. Meet Dr Enser, who is concentrating on image resolution in his virtual surgery.

We’ve also got some advice for security managers on how to deal with swine flu. Here are some pigs on a road.

Two important things: make sure you take part in our CCTV End User Survey; and enter the Security Excellence Awards 2009, for your chance to be a winner. You know it makes sense.
