The security week: Welcome to 2010 – and a look back to 2009

Hello, and welcome to our first weekly missive for 2010! It’s nice to be back. And I’m not just saying that. (Well, I am, but I am also being sincere.)

We haven’t kept quiet over the Christmas and New Year period – we’ve continued to post stories, unlike other security news sites, including two very special edition Songs About Security: one on Christmas Day, and one on New Year’s Day And this week’s security song is by Stealer’s Wheel. Check it out, why dontcha?

Today we’ve also got the countdown of our top 10 best read stories of 2009. Can you pick the winner? Read the story and you will find out. You will!

Well-known UK industry figure and Security Excellence Awards judge Peter French has received an MBE in the 2010 New Year Honours list. Congratulations, Peter!

Also on the site is our latest Bench Test. This time we’re looking at the Axis Q6032-E network dome – and our reviewer is VERY enthusiastic.

Other stories include Iain’s Top 5, on hybrid systems; a retail crime surge in the BRC’s Annual Survey; and our regular advice column from the Access Control Doctor.

It’s all for your delectation. Enjoy!

Popular and opinionated

It’s a bit of a landmark today – we’ve got the final instalment of Alan Hyder‘s wry and incisive columns, the SI Editor’s View. This time, Alan straps on a metaphorical laser blaster and takes aim at the invading hordes of security issue aliens, exploding their green and noxious bodies with the power of opinion and analysis. Metaphorically. Just read it.

Speaking of just reading some things, here are some things some people have read. They’re all articles on I4S in November – and popular ones, to boot!

Today’s also the first day that SIA licensing takes effect in Northern Ireland. Brian Sims, genial honcho of SMT Online, does the reporting thing in this instance.

We’ve also got the BRC launching new guidelines for cash couriers; Hikvision establishing a Russian joint venture; the NHS tackling anti-social behaviour; and Uxbridge College helping the security fraternity.
