The security week: Security Excellence Awards nominees announced!

It’s time for some monster security news today, as we reveal the nominees for the prestigious 2009 Security Excellence Awards! In order to find out if your company is among the contenders; or to bitterly discover your competitor has been listed; or if you’re a fan of a particular company, to see if they’re a nominee; or simply to gawp open-mouthed at the sheer security talent on display – head over to the story now.

And don’t forget – today is the final day to vote for the Security Manufacturer of the Year category. Make your voice heard!

Illegal dumping is terrible, horrible and obscene. Flytipping is just as bad! Hahaha, they are the same thing. Here’s a story about catching some of the bad guys. Nice.

We’ve also got a debate about analogue and IP CCTV; the might and majesty of the SI Editor’s view; some tips on contracting for the UK’s Ministry of Defence; and expert advice on every angle.

Today’s Song About Security comes from titans of thrash metal, Metallica. They’ve penned this ditty in honour of the new European Standard on information destruction. Powerful!

Have a lovely weekend. Oh, and I’m away for the next two editions of this weekly missive. Sitting in for me will be mild-mannered SMT Online editor Brian Sims.

Illegal dumpers; and Butler does it

Hello, and welcome to the first of this week’s I4S highlights missives, crammed full of delicious security news morsels.

It’s the day that Bill Butler takes over the reins at the UK’s Security Industry Authority. Tuck in!

There are also some concealed cameras catching illegal dumpers. Of rubbish!

Controlware are encouraging you to have your say in the debate that’s igniting the CCTV world, when IP faces up to analogue for the right to be claimed world champion. Who will emerge victorious, and who will take a pounding?

There’s also guarding market consolidation; a warm welcome for the security smoke standard; and more on the knife crime epidemic.

India is a wonderful country. Now it is even better, because IFSEC India is taking place there. It’s life enhancing stuff!
