The day has finally arrived! Yes, it’s Thursday. That also means that the Security Excellence Awards 2009 are happening this very night! Wow. I am literally crying with anticipation. Not only will I be there, presenting an award and that – I’ll also be updating my Twitter account – twitter.com/info4security – live from the event, so you can read about the category winners as they’re announced, as well as whatever other pithy bits and pieces I can think of.
To get you in the mood, we have a fantastic video of CCTV in action. It’s a drunk man attempting to buy some beer. It’s very amusing. You should watch it.
It’s also that time of the fortnight when Security Installer editor Alan Hyder strips down to his metaphorical undergarments and dives headlong into the murky pond of security issues, emerging only when he has located and retrieved the valuable, muddy nuggets of opinion and analysis hidden therein. In other words, it’s his SI Editor’s View column. Yes!
Also not far off is the beginning of IFSEC India. Our I4S India editor Verghese Joseph chats to organiser Nigel Brown.
And in addition to all of this untrammelled excitement, there’s hard drive destruction; a big contract win in China for BlueStar SecuTech; and some access control for luxury Hong Kong flats. Hoorah!
It’s Tuesday, and you’re looking particularly foxy. Hey, no problem, you’re very welcome indeed.
When people look back on today in history, it will be remembered as the day the media talked about airport security because an element of nudity was involved. In that spirit, here is my blog post.
In slightly more clothed news today, the BIIAB has released details of some new qualifications available for security officers and public space CCTV operators. Educational.
And the excellently-named Lodewijk van Ommeren says there are many advantages to the latest generation of IP alarm systems. Lovely.
There’s more IP stuff today – IndigoVision’s Barry Keepence on storage; CCTV Center’s roadshows; TDSi on 21CN testing – it’s all there.
And don’t forget the Security Excellence Awards take place next Thursday. You’ll be able to get live updates by following my Twitter feed – and of course all the winners will be up on I4S before the end of the night. Fantastic. Fantastic indeed.
