The security week: News and videos galore

It’s been an adrenaline-packed waterslide of a week for security news on I4S, and we’ve plucked the very firmest and juiciest pieces for your enjoyment and delectation, mixing and matching metaphors to our hearts‘ content. Here is some.

We’ve got a couple of contrasting videos to start things off. One is of a car crashing into a shop, caught on CCTV, which is commonly deployed in security applications these days.

The other is from the recent Security Excellence Awards 2009, where people in nice clothes received awards from pint-sized comedy legend Ronnie Corbett for being good at security this year. Prestigious!

Yesterday was the anniversary of the terror attacks in Mumbai, and our I4S India editor Verghese Joseph looked at both the ‘paradigm shift‘ for India’s security, and examines the changes the Indian government has put in place.

We’ve also got an opinion piece on selling your company to clients; a school using a plane as a classroom; the latest South Africa security news; the inimitable Brian Sims with his SMT Online Editor’s View; and the Co-operative Group’s search for the next big security idea.

This week’s Song About Security comes courtesy of demure songstress Samantha Fox. I wonder whatever happened to her.

Have a magnificent weekend.

The security week: Security Excellence Awards 2009 special

Well, it’s the day after the night that was. What was that night? That was last night – only the night of the Security Excellence Awards 2009, that’s all!

The event was a spectacular success, hosted by none other than British comedy legend, Ronnie Corbett. Ronnie bleeding Corbett, that’s who. You can see him as part of our gallery of winners, right here.

Who were those winners? Why not click on this link to a full list of them, and find out?

And when you’re done with that, have a look at this slideshow of all the glamorous people who lit up the security industry’s night of nights. You won’t regret it.

Then re-live Ronnie’s glory days in this special Security Excellence Awards themed Song About Security. It’s a right old larf, as I believe the expression goes.

The awards also raised over £12,000 for the designated charity, The Bobby Moore Fund for bowel cancer research. Sir Bobby’s widow Stephanie was on hand last night, as was former West Ham star Tony Gale.

Other things: a video of a somewhat inebriated man caught on CCTV. It’s beautiful in its own way.

And a nice person has said very nice things about my blog, The Alarmist, where all these missives go to spend their retirements.

I need a coffee. Bye!
