The security week: Sabrewatch guilty verdict, and the storage future

Oh, hello. It’s I4S Weekly Digest time – squashing the security news highlights into a compact, streamlined package for easy consumption. Delicious!

This week we’ve been observing the SIA’s case against guarding company Sabrewatch, which resulted in a guilty verdict. Sentencing takes place later today, and we’ll let you know the result when that’s in. Meanwhile, IPSA chief Justin ‘P’ Bentley says the SIA has missed a trick in not taking action against Sabrewatch’s clients.

A new report released by IMS Research asks whether IP Storage Area Networks are the future for IP surveillance. Possibly they are!


Questions: Do you need a security job? Do you want to employs someone to do a security job? If the answer to either of these questions is ‘yes’ or ‘maybe’ or ‘perhaps’, then you should visit Jobs For Security. It’s a security jobs site. Jobs!


Also in the news is SmartWater, being given out free in one London borough; RedWeb, being used to track bicycles; and Ian Turner tells us about voice authentication technology. Informative!

This week’s Song About Security comes courtesy of chirpy popsters Radiohead. Their pre- and post-millennial paranoia is totally justified, man!

Don’t forget to get your entries in for the 2010 IFSEC Security Industry Awards. If you win one you will be lauded as a godlike figure amongst your peers, and your enemies will be jealous and lose sleep etc. Enter! The deadline is soon.

Introducing I4S India – and attacking the SIA

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce to you the newest member of the info4security family – I4S India.

That’s right, it’s an exciting new development – a spiffing new channel on I4S, edited by dedicated and charming Bangalore-based Verghese V Joseph. Read my introductory piece – then send him all of your lovely India-centric news.

Also today, Justin ‘P’ Bentley, chief executive of IPSA, has come out swinging against the SIA in the wake of its Delivery Review. Youch! In the same neck of the woods, thematically, is Mick Lee’s take on the flaws of the SIA’s Approved Contractor Scheme. It’s already generating discussion – have your say and leave a comment on the article.

In technology news, OmniPerception is working with BAE Systems to improve facial recognition technology for CCTV systems. Lovely.

And this story, set in Fleetwood, includes a picture of a delightful-looking group of young men.

Don’t forget to conference: Securing Educational Establishments and the IFSEC Conference 2009 are your best bets. For sure.
