The security week: Norbain, regulation, and useful advice

Hello there – welcome to another news-stuffed weekly missive from your pals at info4security. Let’s newsify!

The big news this week was Norbain’s announcement of its capital restructuring. SMT Online editor Brian Sims had the exclusive. Make sure you read it here.

We’ve also got some video footage of interim CCTV Regulator Andrew Rennison explaining what his role will entail. That’s a video worth watching, I daresay.

There are useful words of advice from both Phil Doyle, The Networker, on outdoor IP CCTV; and from Iain Cameron of Mirasys, who discusses video storage. Helpful.

 The BSIA has this week weighed in on the Jeremy Clarkson security guards criticism farrago – which Brian Sims addressed in his column almost three weeks ago. Read Brian’s original piece here – then see what the BSIA has to say.

IFSEC 2010 is approaching more rapidly the closer it gets, you’ll be surprised to discover. We’ve got new preview details from Panasonic, NICE, IC2 CCTV, Connexion 2, and Databac – all situated conveniently in our dedicated IFSEC news channel.

This week’s Song About Security comes courtesy of much-loved Welsh 90s indie-poppers Catatonia. It concerns organised crime.

Make sure you head over to Jobs for Security for all the latest security jobs – and to advertise your own vacancies.

The security week: Physical security and DVR impressions

It’s that time of the week – security news round-up/digest/omnibus funtimes time. Oh yes.

First off the blocks is our latest Bench Test – and it’s a glowing review for Samsung’s SHR 8162 DVR. Read all about it here.

Then there’s a warning that the physical security industry needs a long hard look at itself, and “a major restructure”, according to a survey from Memoori.

This week SMT Online editor Brian Sims looked at the key findings of a review into the Security Industry Authority in his SMT Online Editor’s View. Interesting.

We’ve also got the latest top five tidbits of advice from Iain Cameron of Mirasys – who looks at calculating bandwidth on a local area network. Useful!

Advertisement break: Hey, you – yeah, you! Are you looking for a security job? You are? Tremendous. Here is one that you should apply for: it’s a field sales role for respected industry locking etc types Chubb. Go ahead and apply for it! That way, you may get the job.

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and the people behind clothing-specific dating website uniformdating.com have approached I4S with an offer we couldn’t refuse – £10 off any subscription on their site simply by entering the code SECURITY10 on their upgrades page. It’s particularly suitable for security types who wear a uniform, I’d be so bold as to suggest. And are single, ideally.

This week’s Song About Security comes from perennial weirdos Sparks. It was suggested by a reader and everything.

Don’t forget that you can now pre-register for security exhibition jamboree IFSEC right now, for free. And if you’re exhibiting, you can go ahead and enter the IFSEC 2010 Security Industry Awards. Potential kudos!
