The security week: Quivering with IFSEC anticipation

It’s almost upon us. That once a year, adrenalised security thrill-monkey that is IFSEC. Monday’s the kick-off, though exhibitors are likely to be gathering in Birmingham even now. But not in a menacing way. Well, not necessarily.

SMT Online editor Brian Sims has been busy chatting to some of the major exhibitors about their plans for the show. See what luminaries from Sony, Panasonic (Steven Gerrard, no less!) and HID Global have to say about what they’re launching, and the state of the market.

We’ve also got stories on the launch of IFSEC West Africa, which takes part during the show, and the Intelligent Integration Zone feature area, which looks set to be super interesting. Zone!

Of course there’s also a raft of preview information from more than 70 exhibitors on our dedicated IFSEC news page. Some of the latest articles focus on iDTEQ, Zyxel and ACTi, CSL DualCom, VideoIQ, Irisys, ASL Vision, Clearview, Honeywell, and the recently launched Mobile Phone Security Association.

In the midst of all of this IFSEC 2010 preparation, Brian has managed to find time to have a chat with Nick Palmer of VSG about the company’s rigorous vetting procedures.

And we’ve had advice from our Access Control Doctor on using the features of high end access systems.

Sometimes you just want to know what it is that everyone’s keen on reading. That’s why we provide our handy ‘Best read stories’ service. It tells you which I4S stories have been read by the most people in the last month. Wow!

Our Song About Security this week comes from excellent electropop Mancunians New Order. Have it, etc.

Also, there was an election in the UK yesterday. Interesting.

The security week: IFSEC, customers and cash

It’s Friday, so it must be time to have a gander at The Security Week. And what a week it’s been, eh chums? Let’s have a little look.

Humungous security industry hoedown and product demonstration party IFSEC 2010 is just 10 days away. Crikey. We’re continuing our unrivalled preview coverage, as you’d expect – head over to our dedicated IFSEC News pages to see what we’ve done so far.

This week we’ve included Honeywell, 2020 Imaging, Hikvision, Navtech Radar, Keeneo, ASL, Tandberg and Clearview, Wavesight, AD Network Video, Promise Technology, Emizon, Videotec, Genie CCTV, Visimetrics, Salto, and Mindtree. Phew. And we’ve got a story about an ADT installation at the LG Arena – part of the NEC, where IFSEC itself takes place! What amazing congruity.

Also this week, our specialist end user channel SMT Online has partnered with Securitas to launch its inaugural Good Customer Award. That’s nice!

G4S Cash Services has renewed its multi-million pound contract with supermarket Morrisons. That oughta keep Richard Hammond’s paychecks safe, thank goodness.

Siemens and the London Borough of Bromley have had a major new outsourced CCTV project go live; a victim of an acid attack has spoken out in favour of CCTV; a new report claims ONVIF members still have a greater market share than those in the PSIA; the National Cyber Security Challenge has been launched; and our old pal The Networker is back, talking about HD CCTV.

Our Song About Security this week comes from one David Bowie. He is reported to be ‘thrilled’ to about his inclusion in this illustrious feature.

Here’s a video of one hamster running in his wheel while another hamster sleeps – in the same wheel. Exciting!
