The security week: Security Excellence Awards nominees announced!

It’s time for some monster security news today, as we reveal the nominees for the prestigious 2009 Security Excellence Awards! In order to find out if your company is among the contenders; or to bitterly discover your competitor has been listed; or if you’re a fan of a particular company, to see if they’re a nominee; or simply to gawp open-mouthed at the sheer security talent on display – head over to the story now.

And don’t forget – today is the final day to vote for the Security Manufacturer of the Year category. Make your voice heard!

Illegal dumping is terrible, horrible and obscene. Flytipping is just as bad! Hahaha, they are the same thing. Here’s a story about catching some of the bad guys. Nice.

We’ve also got a debate about analogue and IP CCTV; the might and majesty of the SI Editor’s view; some tips on contracting for the UK’s Ministry of Defence; and expert advice on every angle.

Today’s Song About Security comes from titans of thrash metal, Metallica. They’ve penned this ditty in honour of the new European Standard on information destruction. Powerful!

Have a lovely weekend. Oh, and I’m away for the next two editions of this weekly missive. Sitting in for me will be mild-mannered SMT Online editor Brian Sims.

ID card images, and MoD jobs

Hello! Welcome to a big day of security news excitement. Let’s dig in.

First up is the images of the somewhat reviled UK ID cards, which have been unveiled by Home Secretary Alan Johnson. Will anyone ever actually use one?

We’ve also got a very interesting piece on how to go about getting work from the UK’s Ministry of Defence if you are a guarding company. And let’s face it, so many of us are nowadays. Possibly.

Things that move can often be useful. That’s one reason why TSS is putting CCTV in car wing mirrors. Others are outlined in the article. So feel free to read that.

Elsewhere, we’ve got an Indian appointment for ADT Security; some information destruction standards exhilaration; and pay-as-you-go home IP security. Delightful!

You have precisely one day left in which to vote for the Security Manufacturer of the Year as part of the 2009 Security Excellence Awards. It’s one way to make your favourite stand out from the crowd.

Also, here’s a weird man blowing a raspberry on a cat’s stomach.

Perimeters and analytics

Greetings, on this most Wednesday of afternoons. Time flies, huh? Let’s crack on!

Today we’ve got some expert advice – it comes from Julie Hartley of ADI Global and it concerns perimeter detection. Lovely!

Honeywell is making a song and dance about its new video analytics product, Active Alert v4.7, being given UK Home Office approval. Nice work!

Elsewhere, we’ve got an IFSEC winner; the Security Institute’s conference; a conference for consultants; and ISO certification for Salto. All good, clean fun.

And here’s today’s most important piece of CCTV news.

There’s still an opportunity for you to make a difference in the Security Excellence Awards 2009. You can vote in the Security Manufacturer of the Year category – but hurry. Voting closes on Friday. Go for it!
