September 2018 magazine

Grey space, and how to secure it, is the main topic of the September 2018 print issue of Professional Security magazine. We report on the debate by the Security Commonwealth at the conference during IFSEC 2018. Speakers from the Security Institute, ASIS UK and the Association of Security Consultants debated what grey space is – unowned or unoccupied urban land where terrorists might unobserved do final preparations to carry out attacks – and how owners of property can cover that space, for the security of themselves and everyone.

You can read that issue and past ones on the ‘magazine‘ section of the website. Plus a tribute to Sue Seaby by Una Riley; Roy Cooper’s industry gossip; and four pages of ‘spending the budget’; and four pages of new products and services. Also a return of the book review page; an interview in Nottingham to hear about the East Midlands CSSC, part of a regional roll-out from London of the Cross-Sector Security Communications hub, to cascade security, fraud and safety alerts to whoever wants to receive them, for free; following last issue, more on women’s safety; and staying with the theme of physical security of buildings, we pick up a UK Government document on changes to government estate, and how that may alter central London.

On the manned guarding side, we digest a RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) document on procurement of facility management services, including security. We continue a series of looks this year at business crime and BCRPs (business crime reduction partnerships) whether in their own right or as part of a business improvement district; we visit the Soho Road BID in Birmingham.

Plus regular updates on network security and cyber, including a report on a CTG Intelligence forum, about the convergence of IT and physical threats, and a separate report by parliamentarians on gaps in the cyber-security of critical national infrastructure (CNI); and pages for and about installers and installations.
