Drones are on the cover of the November 2015 print issue of Professional Security magazine, covered by our regular contributor Jim Gannon.
We travel to Weston super Mare, to see how the Somerset resort’s public space CCTV is managing in an era of local government and police austerity. And we’re in Enfield, north London, to see inside their ‘public safety centre’ and see its head Alan Gardner receive certification from the Surveillance Camera Commissioner Tony Porter; and the SSAIB inspectorate. And we report from Cheshire where the Bradford-based Kings Security invited customers and suppliers and other guests and MD Anthony King set out the firm’s progress on monitoring; besides some frank warnings about ‘plug and play’ security products in fact being potentially a security risk to your networks.
Our regular contributor Una Riley as the founder of the four-year-old WiS (Women in Security) awards was naturally at the IPSA chairman’s dinner on the Thames in September, which hosted this year’s WiS. Also we bring you all the regulars – MD Roy Cooper’s gossip page; the four pages of ‘Spending the Budget’, the four pages of new products and services, the book review page – including the thought-provoking book about radicalisation, The Muslims are Coming! – and pages on and about installers; and networks.
We bring together the latest on insider threats; digest the latest Security Research Initiative report, that argues that security management is under-sold; go over recent announcements by the Government from Prime Minister David Cameron, and what they mean for private security and policing; and report how a ‘leopards don’t change spots’ approach means that police are going after criminals doing serious or organised crimes as various as fraud, counterfeiting and human trafficking, which requires giving and taking data from private industry and other agencies.
