Manned Guarding Services

Manned guarding has three main elements. It is either:

  • guarding against unauthorised entry to a building or premises
  • guarding against the destruction of or damage to a building or premises, or
  • guarding a person from assault or injury.

Additionally, security officers with the appropriate CCTV licence can:

  • monitor or track the activities of a specific member of the public in a public or private place
  • focus on someone s activities either by controlling or directing cameras at them
  • identify someone, and
  • protect the premises from disorder and/or protect someone from violence or assault.

By choosing our manned guards, as well as installing security systems such as CCTV1, you ll receive an integrated security service for your entire premises. Guards can patrol your business and monitor your CCTV cameras, linked up to our National Support Centre2, giving you 24-hour protection and providing a more cost efficient security service.

Online training tool launched for fire-door inspectors

Fire door safety week A free online tool that provides Europe s first competency framework for fire door inspectors has been launched by the Fire Door Inspection Scheme (FDIS). Developed in time for Fire Door Safety Week (25 September-1 October 2017), it also features an introduction to the FDIS Diploma in Fire Doors. The service, which is relevant to anyone responsible for specifying, selling, installing or maintaining any aspect of fire doors, is a more comprehensive follow-up to a half-day bite size training course launched by FDIS earlier this year.

FDIS, Europe s first fire door inspection scheme, says it developed the courses to meet growing demand for training in the legal and practical dimensions of fire door inspection. The lack of basic knowledge about fire doors is a real challenge to all parts of the industry, and we felt this was something simple that we could do to help, said Kevin Hulin, FDIS manager. There are now 30 inspectors operating throughout the UK accredited through the FDIS process and we have had more than 1,100 people sign up to study the diploma. This new course is an introduction to the diploma, tailored for the generalist who needs to know the basics and also needs to be able to recognise when to bring in an expert. I hope it will also encourage them to continue their studies further, and support the challenge laid down by the Fire Door Safety Week team to make our building stock that bit safer. You can get a free seven-day trial of the tool here. Fire professionals can also earn a diploma in Fire Doors via FDIS online learning centre and become certificated fire door inspectors through independent assessments by Exova Warringtonfire. Launched in 2012 FDIS was a joint venture between the BWF-Certifire Scheme and Guild of Architectural Ironmongers. IFSEC Global is proud to support Fire Door Safety Week, which runs from 25 September to 1 October.

You can pledge your support for the campaign here, and by tweeting under the hashtag #FireDoorSafetyWeek and sharing or using the wealth of resources found in the campaign s toolkit.

ONVIF Q&A: Latest profiles, cybersecurity and the Highways England project

ONVIF recently launched a new access control profile a specification for standardising technologies from different vendors to promote integration and interoperability and has another in the pipeline. We asked Stuart Rawling, chairman of the ONVIF communication committee, to tell us what the new profiles were all about. Director of global business development at Pelco as well, Rawling also reflects on ONVIF s raison d etre , its cybersecurity work, keeping pace with the dizzying evolution of technology and the organisation s standardisation work with Highways England.

IFSEC Global: Please tell us about the new profile you launched in July Stuart Rawling: Profile A is a sister profile to what we already had in the access control space. We have released Profile C, which enables device configuration, event and alarm management, and door access control. So you can configure those devices with all that information. Profile A is a higher level system profile, more about granting and revoking credentials, changing privileges. And it has a functionality that better enables integration between access control and video management systems. So it fits side by side with Profile C but provides that higher level with more functionality. IFSEC Global: Is it worth explaining the purpose of these profiles for someone not familiar with them? SR: A profile is a feature set pulled from an ONVIF core specification, which is a master document about standardising and interfacing different products from a variety of different vendors. When the industry moved into the IT space, a lot of manufacturers came up with their own interfaces.

ONVIF standardises those interfaces to make integration easier for all types of users, because you can have product interoperability from different vendors using the same interface. From an integration perspective, installation is easier because you re not having to download different drivers. Manufacturers follow a troubleshooting, testing and conformance process that enables that to be done up front, so the users only need to do the system configuration. From the manufacturers perspective, interoperability investment is lower because they can use these standard interfaces to talk to multiple products. It allows them to instead invest resources into bringing more relevant features and iterations to the product line. embedded content IG: Is it difficult to keep these standards up to date given the rapid pace of technological change? SR: Yes, to some degree. You could say that standards in general tend to lag a little bit behind technology. But it all depends on how we approach it.

If you take our next profile, Profile T, which we re working on now, that s an iteration that takes into account the fact that technology has progressed since we released Profile S a number of years ago. We write these standards to be somewhat technology-agnostic. For example, right now the big buzz is 4K, H.265 and things like that. While Profile T can support that, we re not tied to that standard. If some better codec comes out in the future we can still incorporate it into our ecosystem. Because one of the interfaces may be: What video formats does this device support? And the devices can negotiate in which format to transmit between each other. IG: You recently did some work with Highways England? SR: That s a great end user story.

Highways England have a lot of legacy equipment from different vendors. The organisation is trying to standardise their deployment model for the long term so they can use a set standard in a way that allows them more flexibility. We had a standard in the analogue days: PAL in the UK, so the video was very standardised. They are looking for that level of standardisation. ONVIF has been working with them to develop something that can help large organisations migrate to a standardised approach but that also works for different stakeholders in the process. It s very similar to an initiative in the US called NTCIP National Transportation Communications for ITS Protocol, the standard for traffic management used by the US Department of Transportation. IG: Anything else you want to add about ONVIF? SR: We tend to get a lot of press these days around the cybersecurity aspects of products, especially with the cybersecurity threats we re reading about every single day. This was a recognised concern for ONVIF several years ago.

The manufacturers got together and as part of our core specification we wrote some security policies for manufacturers to follow, as well as providing a standardised interface for execution policies. But of course, good security is a combination of technology and policy. So while manufacturers who have implemented this standard have the technology, we also rely on the end users and consultants to put in best practices in the deployment of that technology.

Vanderbilt releases SPC 3.8 with a more intuitive interface and added remote maintenance capabilities

Intrusion detection Vanderbilt has released the latest update to SPC, the cloud-based intrusion detection system it inherited after its acquisition of Access Control Technology Ltd last year. The company says that SPC 3.8 more effectively supports dual authorisations and will make installations speedier and more cost-effective. SPC harnesses cloud services, apps and a dedicated software suite to provide comprehensive alarm management functionality.

The pace at which we are developing our systems is unparalleled, and SPC has a strong legacy, incorporating the latest technologies, design, and manufacturing methods to help drive this pace, says John O Donnell, product marketing at Vanderbilt. SPC 3.8 is a hardware and software intrusion system that keeps pace with market-driven features. Ultimately, we are aspiring towards a future single platform migration strategy within our product portfolio, and SPC is at the heart of this. embedded content Dual authorisation Vanderbilt has updated the interface in a bid to make it more intuitive. There are also enhancements to its remote maintenance capabilities. All SPC systems can be remotely updated as opposed to a more time-consuming, expensive physical site visit to the latest SPC firmware. As we continue to innovate this legacy system, the access engine within SPC has been boosted with additional functionality to support dual authorisation, continues John O Donnell. This escort facility ensures greater security measures when using the system. The support system has been complemented with the ability to obtain support information directly from the SPC help page, allowing access to customer and installer documentation.

The cause and effect engine has also been upgraded with a new layout and options to simplify programming. Vanderbilt is a major player in access control, intrusion detection and video management. We recently caught up with the company s CEO, Joe Grillo, who recently came third in our roll call of the top 10 influencers among security manufacturers/service providers 2017, at IFSEC International 2017.

Calls for greater collaboration as security industry faces blended threat

Recent cyber-security threats underscore the need for physical and information security teams to work more closely together. The threat is blended so the teams need to work together, said Ellie Hurst, Marcomm and Media Manager for Advent IM at IFSEC International. Hurst cited numerous attacks where hackers exploited vulnerabilities found in physical systems.

For example, in December, two individuals hacked into the Washington DC CCTV camera network days before Donald Trump s inauguration. Meanwhile in October, Hangzhou Xionmai Technology, a vendor behind DVRs and internet-connected cameras, inadvertently played a role in a wide-scale DDOS attacks against PayPal, twitter, Spotify and other platforms. While physical and information security professionals typically work in different departments, they need to find a common language, said Hurst. Do you know what you have? Do you know what they are built on? What is the life-cycle management of these products and are they patched? said Hurst. From there you can decide whether to accept the risk. Though rare, some organisations have merged the physical and information security teams, said James Willison, Founder of Unified Security Ltd.

Symantec has merged their team and Barclays is building one SOC for both cyber and physical security, he said. All is not lost if your organisation is behind. There are measures every company can take to mitigate the risk, said the presenters at IFSEC. Ninety percent of breaches are due to people s mistakes, poor configuration and maintenance, said Steven Kenny, Business Development Manager Architecture & Engineering (A&E) Program, Axis Communications. Creating a documented internal policy and increasing employee awareness is important, said Kenny. Training and education is also important. You need to find a training course suitable for those in physical security, added Hurst. At the end of the day, the threat isn t going to go away. You ve got to do the training.

Detector testers to launch innovative new smoke detector tester at FIREX 2017

FIREX preview Detectortesters is unveiling Solo 365, a new smoke detector tester, at FIREX 2017. Solo 365 is lighter, quicker to test, compatible with a wider range of applications and almost impossible to over-apply, says the Hertfordshire-based company. A proximity sensor within the test cup triggers the generation of smoke by the auto-start feature, eliminating the risk of contamination and minimising smoke wastage.

And a new, flexible head and slimline design means Solo 365 can more easily access tight spaces and test more detectors. Responding to feedback from customers Detectortesters has added an auto LED torch for testing in dark areas. The torch automatically switches on when light levels drop. In common with other Detectortesters products, Solo 365 has been approved by leading detector manufacturers and is fully compliant with the latest standards and regulations. Detectortesters (AKA No Climb Products Ltd) has more than three decades experience in the design and manufacture of detector test equipment. It is also launching new aerosol cans which comply with forthcoming regulations affecting the use of some pressurised smoke aerosols for use in the Solo 330 dispenser. And the company is introducing a new Urban range of kit pitched at mobile engineers working on large sites and built-up areas. Solo 365 will be available later this month and will be the main focus of the Detectortesters stand atFIREX International. FIREX International takes place between 20-22 June 2017 at London ExCeL.
