Greetings, security newsmates. It’s Monday afternoon, and thus time for your regular dose of security news excitement. Here goes!
CCTV has been in the news in South Africa – catching a meteor lighting up the sky above Gauteng (and, if we’re being honest, probably some other places as well). Have a look at it here.
AP Security have been busy this year – and their work at Glastonbury has been one of our most read stories – and now we’ve got another thing about what they did for the Tour of Britain. Cycling!
There’s also an IP distribution deal for EMEA between ADI and Pelco; a big RFID deal in Germany; Flir thermal cameras to be distributed by Videor in the UK; and a big chunk of extra recording capacity for a Samsung Techwin DVR. Bulging!
It’s a Monday! That much is certain. Today our US correspondent John Honovich gives us his take on ISC West, the big trade show held there last week.
We’ve also got the rundown on Mitie’s Total Security Management strategy – it may have something to do with managing all elements of security. Like, totally.
Honeywell has launched a new ‘green’ camera – and there’s a new ‘green’ category in the ‘Security’ Excellence Awards this year. Read about them and then enter!
Home Secretary Jacqui Smith is roaming the streets of the UK with a bag of special tools, taking wheel clamps off vehicles which have been targeted by rogue firms. Okay, that’s possibly slightly inaccurate. But it’s in the spirit of the story, and that’s what counts.
Elsewhere, Reliance is predicting rising logistics crime; Quadrant has become a Cisco partner; and Samsung Techwin and Videor have agreed on a distribution deal. How lovely!
There are only three things you can be certain about in this life: death, taxes, and the shame and stigma with which you will be burdened if you fail to attend the IFSEC Conference 2009. It’s enticing!
