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.

Cheers,

Anthony Hildebrand

The security week: Terror threat, and the HD future

It’s Friday, and as a consequence I have Friday on my mind. Astounding! You may also have Friday on your mind, but it is by no means a requirement, or a demand. Approach your life as you see fit.

This week I was very briefly in Munich to hear about Sony’s new HD CCTV launches. There’s an article I wrote about it all here – and something specific about Sony’s new HD camera is here.

Erstwhile and current SMT Online editor Brian Sims covered UK Home Secretary Alan Johnson’s raising of the terror threat level; he also brought us the details of Terahertz radiation technology being used in scanners to detect explosives.

We had two stories in the ‘spraying some stuff onto things or people’ category – door supervisors are spraying people with Redweb’s stuff; and Dutch train people are spraying metal things with Selectamark’s stuff. Spray!

And a consultancy has claimed that risk management is a “top 10 career move in 2010“. Is it? Is it really?

Three popular things now: a story about the security and legal implications of people accessing online porn at work; private investigators say that business is booming during the economic downturn; and our Song About Security this week comes from way back in 1944, courtesy of the Andrews Sisters. Old school.
