The security week: IFSEC, customers and cash

It’s Friday, so it must be time to have a gander at The Security Week. And what a week it’s been, eh chums? Let’s have a little look.

Humungous security industry hoedown and product demonstration party IFSEC 2010 is just 10 days away. Crikey. We’re continuing our unrivalled preview coverage, as you’d expect – head over to our dedicated IFSEC News pages to see what we’ve done so far.

This week we’ve included Honeywell, 2020 Imaging, Hikvision, Navtech Radar, Keeneo, ASL, Tandberg and Clearview, Wavesight, AD Network Video, Promise Technology, Emizon, Videotec, Genie CCTV, Visimetrics, Salto, and Mindtree. Phew. And we’ve got a story about an ADT installation at the LG Arena – part of the NEC, where IFSEC itself takes place! What amazing congruity.

Also this week, our specialist end user channel SMT Online has partnered with Securitas to launch its inaugural Good Customer Award. That’s nice!

G4S Cash Services has renewed its multi-million pound contract with supermarket Morrisons. That oughta keep Richard Hammond’s paychecks safe, thank goodness.

Siemens and the London Borough of Bromley have had a major new outsourced CCTV project go live; a victim of an acid attack has spoken out in favour of CCTV; a new report claims ONVIF members still have a greater market share than those in the PSIA; the National Cyber Security Challenge has been launched; and our old pal The Networker is back, talking about HD CCTV.

Our Song About Security this week comes from one David Bowie. He is reported to be ‘thrilled’ to about his inclusion in this illustrious feature.

Body armour and installation times

Hey! Time for some exciting claims action today, as our two top stories are all about some claims or other. Claims!

First up is ASEO, whose CEO claims its body armour is the best in the world. What a claim! Is it true? It is difficult for me to say.

Our second claim comes from Siemens. They reckon their fancy new detectors can halve installation times. It may well be the case!

There’s also an RFID contract in Malaysia for RCG; and new product launches for Y-cam, Videotec, and Samsung Techwin. Fantastic.

And you may not have heard, but the Security Excellence Awards are happening this very week – Thursday night, in actual fact! If you can’t make it, I’ll be dominating the technosphere by using fangled technology Twitter LIVE! from the Park Lane Hilton. Follow me here for all the excitement you can handle.
