BSIA expands business awards with three new categories

Industry news The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has launched three new awards, expanding its existing awards programme, opening it up to contributions from across its membership. The Security Business Awards will be presented at the BSIA s annual luncheon, in Covent Garden s Grand Connaught Rooms in July 2017, before an audience of security business leaders as well as representatives from police forces and government. There are three awards categories.

The International Partnership Award underscores the capability of the UK security industry in embodying the BSIA s export brand values of world class security through innovation and experience. The award will be given to a BSIA member company that has overcome challenges to deliver a project outside the UK either for an overseas customer or partner organisation. The Environmental Award recognises the commitment of a security company, or its employees, to improve sustainability within the organisation, or to improve their local community s wider environment. The Innovative Security Project of the Year Award recognises projects that mark a first for either the industry, a particular market, or a new application of an existing security solution. The BSIA s head of marketing and communications, Amanda Caton, says: Our established awards scheme is already successful in enabling us to recognise and reward the outstanding contributions made by security personnel, but we wanted to ensure that we re also recognising companies wider commitments to promoting the worldwide reputation of the industry, improving corporate social responsibility and applying existing solutions in new and innovative ways. Nomination forms are available to download from the BSIA s website. The BSIA is a longstanding and valued partner of, and exhibitor at, IFSEC International, Europe s biggest fire and security trade show taking place 20-22 June 2017, London ExCeL.

CEDIA advises on smart wiring

Due to today s ever growing reliance on digital and smart appliances, security professionals are facing greater pressure to install complex cabling infrastructures needed to support smart home technology. Simon Buddle, Education Director at CEDIA EMEA, highlights the importance of installing an efficient and secure residential cabling system. He explains how professionals can provide clients with the right cabling requirements for the modern home of today and tomorrow.

Wiring in the evolving smart home Technology is increasingly infiltrating the home. With virtually all household technologies part of the home network, a simple phone line and TV antenna is no longer adequate to support the technology that is now available to homeowners. As a result, many require comprehensive wiring infrastructures and data network systems that are suitable for the modern smart home. In order to prevent opportunists from doing it themselves , it s crucial for security professionals to offer a a service that benefits homeowners. A correctly wired infrastructure at the very first stage of building or renovating is fundamental to homeowners who want technology. A common phrase heard among the home technology industry is the most expensive cable you have to install is the one that did not get installed in the first place . The basis of a smart home is the infrastructure, the cables. Not all properties require technology at this stage. But it is crucial for the correct wiring to be in place so that it is ready for the future.

A wired infrastructure can set up the home for future applications, whilst still preserving the d cor of the home and adding value. The rise of smart wiring presents a great opportunity for security professionals. The home technology sector presents a lucrative opportunity for these professionals to expand their reach and create new business. By offering a more complete service for the home, including specialist services, such as fitting reliable cabling infrastructure, security professionals can guarantee their businesses will be more resilient. It could help them through tough times as they pick up more work from new and existing customers. CEDIA s smart wiring education To make sure security professionals are up-to-date with the latest skills and knowledge, CEDIA has best practice advice for wiring smart homes. CEDIA has a number of courses for those who want to extend their cabling knowledge. One of their most popular education programmes is its one day Smart Home Wiring course. Attendees learn how to plan and install a wireless infrastructure that can withstand and integrate a range of modern technological demands.

Based on the Smart Home Infrastructure Recommended Guidelines , it promises to leave attendees with a clear understanding of how a modern home should be cabled for new technologies, and future flexibility. CEDIA s the Smart Home Infrastructure Recommended Guidelines is perfect for security professionals looking to move into the home technology market or gain a wider understanding of the subject. The document aims to help security professionals understand the comprehensive cabling infrastructure required for the modern home. It sets out a plan for a far more integrated and modern approach to wiring homes. CEDIA at IFSEC CEDIA is hosting a number of training sessions at IFSEC International 2017. The 90 minute training sessions will take place in South Gallery Suite 8 at ExCeL on 20 th and 21 st of June: 20th June: Introduction To Smart Home Technology IP Networking for the Smarthome WiFi Tips & Tricks For The Modern Home Intro to Audio, Video & Home Entertainment 21st June: Introduction To Smart Home Technology Building A Business In The Smart Home Marketplace Panel Discussion Lighting Control For The Secure Home Wiring Infrastructure For The Modern Home For more information on what advice, courses and literature CEDIA can offer security professionals, please visit www.cedia.co.uk Be smart come to IFSEC International 2017 The Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming an ever important element of various technology solutions for the smart home. The ability to connect, communicate with, and remotely manage a vast number of networked, automated devices via the internet is now inescapable.

This June, the latest smart products are on hand to test and trial throughout the exhibition as well as a dedicated smart seminar theatre, and training sessions on the show floor.

Private Investigators License

Overview of the UK S.I.A Private Investigators licence In the Private Security Industry various sectors have already been licenced such as: Manned guards, Door supervisors, Close protection operatives, Public space surveillance (CCTV) operators and Security guards by the Security Industry Authority. The S.I.A is the organisation responsible for this regulation and reports to the Home Secretary.
Private Investigators License

The Security Industry Authority1 has a series of objectives which cover these professions and the Private Investigator sector, such as: “Providing services and standards to their customers”, “Delivering regulatory activities effectively and efficiently”, “Delivering a development programme that continues effective regulation of the private security industry” and “To be recognised internally and externally as a model of good practice”.

As Licensing for Private Investigators is a government priority2 in the UK.

The following indices can be drawn from existing literature:

Although Private Investigator licences and the requirement for a business licence are still subject to Ministerial approval, the momentum is there and a whole new world of regulation, inspection and bureaucracy is coming.

A typical S.I.A Licence costs: 220.00 and lasts for 3 years. To get the S.I.A Private Investigator licence you need to pass the, “Fit and Proper person” tests and need to have successfully completed a, “Test of Competency”, such as The Association of British Investigators Training Academy: IQ Level 3 Award for Professional Investigators3 or the BTEC Professional Investigators4, costing around: 300.00 – 400.00.

Please note that that the Draft British Standard for the Provision of Investigative Services recommends that the competence necessary to complete an investigation has been demonstrated by the supplier of the services: Conducting investigations, conducting interviews, searching for information and preserving evidence, surveillance techniques, understanding and working to relevant laws and standards and the ability to report findings the syllabus of the Level three Awards5….

The rush amongst Investigation companies to gain as much kudos and credibility as possible by attaing, “Voluntary , Kite marks, such as: British Standard 1020006, has abated and “Self regulation”, is, now, the order of the day. The organisations and businesses that wish to bid for government contracts have enroled on the Approved Contractor Scheme (ACS) – involving eligibility checks, an assessement conducted by an external body and hefty annual registration fees.

Please note that in Northern Ireland some of the criteria for assessing convictions are: “Conflict related”. All applications are actually assessed on an individual basis and the decision is specific to each licence type. The SIA licensing system decision is open to appeal.

In order to apply for a licence you must have the right to work in the UK but you do not have to be a British Citizen.

Batteries not included: Alarm.com and Qualcomm collaboration could create reconnaissance drones for the home

Batteries Not Included: Alarm.com And Qualcomm Collaboration Could Create Reconnaissance Drones For The Home

In the 1987 sci-fi feelgood classic Batteries not included , the arrival in a hard-up family s apartment of small, sentient spaceships is a solution for the maintenance and upkeep of their home as well as their more serious problems. The flying saucer type objects, which are equipped with cute eyes and robotic arms and legs, quickly set about repairing everything broken in the apartment. They even repair a vandalized caf downstairs and help the elderly couple who run it cook the food and get the orders out.

It s a bit of a stretch to say that Alarm.com and Qualcomm s mooted collaboration reported by CNET might promise similar wonders. For a start the concept whereby camera-equipped drones fly through your home to investigate anomolous activity is more about reconnaissance than conducting repairs themselves. For all the staggering pace of technological change right now, we re not quite there yet. Nevertheless, it s a pretty mind-blowing concept if they make it happen. embedded content We ve seen the migration of video surveillance into the private home, with Wi-Fi enabled models proliferating in recent years. And we ve witnessed the rise of drones as both commercial tools and something for adults and children to play with down the park. But the notion of using them as reconnaissance vehicles within the home is something of a bold idea. Alarm.com, a subscription-based home security provider, is partnering with Qualcomm s Snapdragon Flight Drone Platform to make this happen, CNET reports. The drones, which would be totally autonomous, would fly to, say, the site of an unusual noise or tripped motion sensor, record footage with their on-board camera and send the resulting video to your smartphone.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon Flight platform pushes the boundaries of the drone industry and has led to many new form factors and use cases, says Hugo Swart, senior director of product management for Qualcomm Technologies Inc. Alarm.com, with its security expertise, is taking commercial and residential security systems to the next level by integrating intelligent and cutting-edge drones to its solutions. Alarm.com s Insights Engine , which uses machine learning, would help drones learn how to spot anomalous activity in the home. An Alarm.com representative told CNET that the drones might be showcased at some point this year, but that an official release timetable is not yet confirmed.

6 trends in video surveillance to watch out for in 2017

In 2017 we see video surveillance continuing its growth trend for security, as well as for retail and traffic management applications, and in support of the wider IoT trend. Industry analyst IHS projects that in 2017 video surveillance will capture nearly 6000 Petabytes of data, and by 2019 3.3 trillion hours of surveillance video will be captured daily. Video is also being retained longer for many reasons, including for use as evidence by law enforcement, or to use with advanced analytics in retail environments.

Based on our interactions with customers and partners, we anticipate a number of key developments.

1. More video data to support video analytics Organisations will need to become more adept at leveraging unstructured data to identify patterns and trends. Surveillance data or, more accurately, video-based data will be increasingly used for business purposes. No longer just for keeping people and property safe; video surveillance will produce greater financial returns. Highly sophisticated video analytics applications will see greater adoption to make better business decisions. Today, 50% of analytics are for non-security purposes. To support these analytical functions, video must be retained for longer periods.

2. Surveillance cameras with intelligence embedded 2016 saw a surge in camera counts especially HD cameras yielding considerably more data to manage. In 2017 we expect the adoption of cameras with wider panoramas, higher resolutions, and more sensors will accelerate.

Watch for more installations to transition from analogue and SD cameras, with a demand that more surveillance capabilities compression, streaming, storage, and analytics be bundled into cameras for greater value. The influx of data will strain storage and make an intelligent, multi-tier storage strategy more vital than before. With improved intelligence in cameras, storage management software to effectively manage the influx of data will become even more important.

3. Healthcare heats up for surveillance Common challenges such as workplace violence, drug related crimes, gang violence, infant/child abduction threats, natural disasters and terrorism will require healthcare organisations to make significant surveillance upgrades or complete system over-hauls.

80% of hospitals are in need of an upgrade of access control systems and CCTV (IAHSS). For example, to protect against legal action in slip/fall lawsuits, it is recommended that healthcare facilities retain video data for at least two years. In addition, controlled observation rooms may soon exceed the number of security cameras, extending the ability of nursing staff to monitor patients and improve overall care. A modern video surveillance solution will be needed to improve overall facility safety and security while also increasing operational efficiency.

4. A surge in biometrics applications Today facial recognition is used to identify criminal suspects. Healthcare organisations will increasingly add facial recognition to their security arsenal. We anticipate greater adoption of applications for counting people to help transport organisations reduce congestion and improve services. Increasingly, biometrics is helping to prevent the major data breaches that have become common.

Public and private entities will embrace more sophisticated cyber security. In the US, the Cyber Security Alliance, in conjunction with The White House launched an initiative advising the use of fingerprints and one time codes as a way of authentication. Facial recognition is another growth area, where biometric technology is now available for use with body-worn cameras. Both technologies hold great potential, and will require intelligent multi-tiered storage to keep the costs of the required data in check.

5. IoT sensor and video management Watch the internet of things (IoT) emerge as one of the top culprits for data growth. The real challenge for IT managers will be to merge this data with large and diverse files types such as video surveillance to enable collective business intelligence. This will create a data management challenge for state and municipal IT departments tasked with creating the infrastructure to house, protect and analyse both massive video data sets and millions of IoT sensor files. Add to this the growing list of benefits made possible by the correlation of video data with input from smart devices, and the demand for storage and storage integration explodes. Embedded sensor technology will allow cities to become smarter, and data from that sensor input will be integrated with video data and analysed to help make urban communities more attractive.

Look for vehicle and pedestrian traffic to be more aggressively captured and integrated with sensor input from trains, buses, and subways to cut congestion. Parking facilities can be monitored and the video combined with input from smart meters to reduce bottlenecks and to improve consumer satisfaction.

6. Video surveillance-as-a-service emerges As we see smarter cameras and more types of sensors integrated into them, there s been a movement toward more in-band analytics. This confluence of factors is laying the foundation for surveillance-as-a-service. Smaller deployments will be aggregated into this service model. For example, commercial campuses can centralise surveillance services if they use smart cameras with in-band analytics and other sensors, in order to automate functions that took multiple personnel and enable a more proactive approach to surveillance, and bridge the gap between a prosecution model to a more preventative system.

Christmas security tips for pubs, bars and restaurants

Christmas Security Tips For Pubs, Bars And Restaurants

For many companies, it s time for the yearly Christmas party and with New Year s Eve celebrations around the corner too, there is a huge increase in business for the events and hospitality industry. While Christmas is generally good news for the industry, a sharp rise in both customers and average per-customer alcohol consumption is a potentially dangerous cocktail for security at bars, clubs and restaurants. Here are some top tips for avoiding security slip-ups Customer care at Christmas Your door security, staff communication and health and safety practices are in place to look after your most prized asset: your customers.

How you look after security isn t just important for keeping people safe; it s also imperative for your business. Bars, clubs and pubs that neglect security, risk police investigation and can even lose their licence. Security starts at the front door Your door staff are the first point of call for any customers, so it s important to make sure they are fully briefed before a busy evening. Is there a private function taking place? What sort of customers are you expecting that evening? Is there any real potential for crowd disturbances? The more your security staff know, the more informed decisions they can make. It s also important to ensure security maintain a reassuring but non-intimidating presence customer service skills are important. Customers will feel safer knowing you have a good security team at your bar or pub but heavy-handed and unfriendly security staff is a sure way to keep customers away.

Health and safety: make a list check it twice! Planning for health, safety and security during the busy period, is a great way to get all your staff on the same page. You will obviously already have your emergency plans and security measures in place but reminding all your staff what their responsibilities are is necessary before Christmas. Ensure everyone knows the rules regarding alcohol service, where the emergency exits are, who the qualified first aider is and what you expect of each member of staff in case of an emergency. Communication is key this Christmas How your staff communicate with each other and with customers is imperative when it comes to managing a busy bar or pub. Keep everyone on the same channel by investing in two way- radios. Discreet, lightweight and durable, two way radios offer an instant communication line for your door staff, bartenders and management team. Communicating with customers in a positive way, comes down to hiring the right staff and using basic common sense. Ensure all staff are clear with their communication if things go wrong customers need to feel assured they are being looked after.

Also, if your business has a customer service identity and a particular way of talking to the public, ensure everyone is following it. Security: not just for Christmas While these are good guidelines for managing the bigger crowds this festive season, they are also great ways of working in 2017 too. Keeping your security policy professional, reactive but still subtle will ensure staff and customers feel safe, looked after and relaxed at your venue.
