The security week: Argos, Sainsbury’s, and IFSEC India

It’s Friday, so in many cases it’s the end of the working week. Hooray! And apologies if not. Here’s some security news to cheer you up!

It’s not often we get to talk about Argos, the UK’s premier great value but slightly depressing retail experience provider. They’ve teamed up with VSG for some security provision excitement. Lovely.

Speaking of retailers, Loomis is working with Sainsbury’s. That’s an effective partnership!

And IFSEC India 2009 is taking place right now. Our I4S India editor, Verghese Joseph, spoke exclusively to Delhi’s chief minister, the delightfully named Sheila Dikshit, at the event’s opening. Check out I4S India for more stories direct from the show.

This week’s Song About Security is the sublime and powerful ‘Girls on Film’ by Duran Duran. Click through to find out why.

Don’t forget, if you missed it last week, that you can find all of the winners of the 2009 Security Excellence Awards here. Then have a look at these galleries of the winners themselves, and the glamorous folks what attended. Beautiful!

Argos and pickles

Ahem. It’s time for some security news wotsits.

First up today is much loved UK catalogue-based small-pencil-and-waiting-on-plastic seats-with-people-you-hope-won’t-speak-to-you retailer Argos. VSG has signed a contract to do security stuff for them!

Then there’s good old Dave Pickles. Guess what he’s in? That’s right: it’s the managing director’s chair at Siemens Security Solutions.

There’s also Rachel Bowler picking up a Young Entrepreneur’s award; a distribution deal between 802 Global and ACTi; and just how secure are you and your organisation?

Don’t forget that IFSEC India is just around the corner. If it’s at all geographically feasible, you should attend. It’s likely to be ace.

And here’s another chance to look at the galleries from the Security Excellence Awards 2009 – here’s the winners (and an accompanying list of them) and the beautiful people who attended. Super good stuff.
