- Security TWENTY
- Women in Security
On desks is the October 2017 print issue of Professional Security magazine. We return to Stockley Park, the business park near Heathrow, to interview Guy Mathias, at the offices of Suntory Ribena, to hear about risks, and how they fit with the modern security professional (and they do). We’re also at the Staffordshire half of the summer pop music weekend V Festival, to see the varied security measures – from the armed police to the guy (or gal) on the car park gate giving directions.
We speak again – it’s been a while – to Nick Tolson, of National Churchwatch, on the advice given to places of worship. While terrorism makes headlines, it’s still theft and assault that are the more everyday risks – and all but the largest cathedrals have purely security staff. That’s no reason not to plan, we hear.
Plus the regulars, the book review page, the four pages of ‘spending the budget’ and the four pages of new products, and our regular columnists, Mike Gillespie, Una Riley (from the Women in Security awards night in London) and Jim Gannon.
We begin a new series on security in history, looking at the cancelled South African cricket tour of 1970, called off in advance of anti-apartheid protests – led by a man who later became a Labour minister under Tony Blair and who made efforts to improve the security of the Palace of Westminster. And we bring back another series, on jobs in various sectors; we look at what it’s like to do security in oil and gas.
