ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions with The Bloomfield Group MET and Avigilon hosted The Security Event, a seminar at the Jaguar Land Rover Factory in Birmingham. The event included a speech by Michael Brooke – ACPO Development Officer.
ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions’ Managing Director, David Wigglesworth, presented its CLIQ Remote key control product.
Ian Vickers, Managing Director of MET raised the issue of cyber crime. Ian pointed out that the threat is increasing in complexity and so to combat this issue organisations and Government are setting aside budgets to challenge this major problem.
David Small, Regional Sales Manager for Avigilon, demonstrated the company’s high-definition security products and software. And Richard Bissett, Group MD of the Bloomfield Group spoke on the NASv2 rapidly deployable CCTV system and how it can deter crime.
David Trimmer, Chairman of the Bloomfield Group, said: “Michael Brooke’s key message drew on Secured by Design, a flagship UK police initiative to help ‘design out’ crime through the use of high-quality innovative products and processes. By combining minimum standards of physical security and well-tested principles of natural surveillance and defensible space, crime has been proven to be cut by up to 75 per cent. By working in partnership and as a community, we can use security standards across the security industry to prevent all kinds of crimes.”
And David Wigglesworth, Managing Director of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, said: “We are pleased to be in partnership with other leading security companies to ‘design out’ crime at the specification stage of projects. At ASSA ABLOY we work closely with our UKAS accredited test lab to ensure our product testing is independent and unbiased, to help at the design and manufacturing stage of product development. Our testing procedures are specifically tailored to simulate methods of attack, such manual and hammer attacks, so we can tailor our products to meet the industry’s key performance standards. We believe that combining minimum standards of physical security and processes is crucial to reducing crime. This year is a special year for ASSA ABLOY, as we are celebrating our 20th anniversary and this event was the perfect place to show our partners how we have become the global leader in door opening solutions over the last two decades.”
