Hello, pals! Here’s your daily dose of security newsology. Honk!
According to the Master Locksmiths Association – famous for their ‘lock and key’ parties [not really] – 85 per cent of lock safety advice is unsatisfactory. Bad retail staff!
And we’ve got an exclusive story about HMV’s new ‘non-confrontational’ interview technique to prevent employee fraud. Fab!
There’s also some strong opinion on vehicle and plant theft; Axis lets us know the winners of its service partner programme awards; and Steve Bailey has taken on the employee screening and vetting mantle at G4S.
In our intruder alarm section we’ve got an application story from Luminite, active in Northern Ireland, as well as Norbain marketing Siemens’ Intrunet E-Line Detector range. Rockin’!
And over on I4S India, the delightful dedicated Indian security news channel, we’ve got Australia studying Commonwealth Games security concerns – and a tightening up for security of scientists following terrorist threats.
OK, let’s get right down to brass tacks and do this thing. Come on!
I’m overjoyed to announce that we have a story today from the Master Locksmiths Association! These locking heroes are warning everyday folks that they should really be using licensed locksmiths – when they need the services of one. Naturally. That’s because the MLA is now able to do Criminal Records Bureau checks. Thorough!
Metaphor alert: today Security Installer editor Alan Hyder has ascended to the peak of Mt Security and summoned forth his opinion hammer, in order to smite industry issues from on high, leaving analysis shards strewn all over the business landscape. Something like that happens in his SI Editor’s View!
Storytime! Here’s MITIE winning a new contract; here’s the recession and its impact on CCTV uptake; and here’s some surveillance in a Sainsbury depot or warehouse type thing. It’s all solid info.
Do you want more in-depth information on some of the top companies in the security industry? You do? That’s good to hear, imaginary person. I recommend investigating the I4S Industry Focus feature area. It’s packed full of goodness in every bite.
