First up is Brian Sims’ exclusive interview with Norbain boss Alun John, in which John addresses issues raised in our CCTV End User Survey, and recent CCTV criticisms. He’s making his voice heard. What do you think?
Our intrepid SMT Online editor has also been busy this week at the Security Institute’s annual conference, where he filed a number of reports, including this one on MP Bruce George’s hard-hitting look at regulation; and Andy Williams’ investigations into in-house versus contracted-in manned guarding. Interesting.
Security Installer editor Alan Hyder has also had his nose to the grindstone – in addition to his own SI Editor’s View column, he has brought us the latest instalment of Jon’s Top 5, looking at video analytics; and Gerard Honey’s look at training courses for installers. There’s also a black box for installer vans. Ride on time.
And over on I4S India, editor Verghese Joseph has written about the Indian celebrities most likely to damage your computer, as well as the security preparations for next year’s Commonwealth Games.
A big exclusive for I4S today, with SMT Online editor Brian Sims interviewing Norbain honcho Alun John about the current state of CCTV – and the outcome of our recent CCTV End User Survey. The only place you can read the interview is right here. Yep!

Madstock, the Madness-skafest, took place in July – and AP Security were working there. This article has already had a few comments from gig attendees – see what they have to say. And say something yourself, if you so desire.
Our Song About Security this week comes from Mr Fats Domino. Contrary to popular belief, this is not his actual name – it’s a stage moniker. It was bestowed upon him due to his habit of dipping his dominoes in lard before entering major dominoes tournaments. He said it was done simply ‘for luck’ – but fellow competitors claimed it was cheating.
