Security prepare to combat Coronavirus 

ISIO (image)Viral Disease Security

By ISIO [International Security Industry Organization]

No-one knows if this Coronavirus could turn into a pandemic but, at this moment in time, this must be seriously be considered.

A few months ago, ISIO suggested in articles that security managers must ensure that there is a contingency in the budget to obtain equipment or skills training in case of an unknown threat that could arrive out of the blue.

Any responsible managing or finance director must consider allocating 

funding and preparing for this emerging threat because it has life impacting or life & death possibilities.

Considering Equipment, Manpower training and Policy

Training for Staff

Obviously, the biggest nightmare is not knowing who a threat until one can are truly see and hear the threat. The faster a person of interest is identified the better. A non-intrusive method to interview someone that is suspected of having flu symptoms. Consider the fact that people may lie or hide about their medical status because of fears. One may then need to determine where and who they were with over the past days. Subsequently, quick interviewing methods based on deception detection is required (ISIO highly recommends HIM Tool link below)

Strangely enough, you would be surprised how many people do not know how to wash their hands. Regardless – show them when talking to them ‘by soaping up between fingers and even fingernails’. Furthermore, ensure that bathrooms are stocked with medical soap.

Furthermore, train all, that touching others must be with medical gloves. Ensure that any cuts or open wounds must be quickly cleaned with disinfectant and securely covered with plasters

Equipment:

Some type of thermal detector be it connected to cctv or handheld to identify people that have high temperatures.

Medical gloves and face masks for all staff and specially security staff

Mouth-to-mouth respiration protectors for safety officers or staff familiar with first aid training

Consider Policy

It may be the case that  people may come into contact with many people. Some may be tested once and set free. Subsequently, all people must be closely continuously monitored for flu symptoms. Naturally, any educated HR professional in the company would be able to contribute towards policy besides the training of staff (perhaps security can assist in the training. The benefit of security staff assisting would be reinforcing the knowledge and heightening situational awareness which is a key factor for security awareness)

Furthermore, staff that are on travel trips must be supported by HR or Security in every which way. It is suggested that, HR and Security learning from this experience, to ensure that the staff that travel are provided a travel bag with the necessary items to protect themselves which should include masks, gloves and plasters.

UAV’s in Conventional Security: Will It Happen?

UAV’s in Conventional Security: Will It Happen? | #TpromoCom #Drone #UAV #Security | The use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) in conventional security is almost a given when you stand back and look at the solution itself and what it can do to assist corporations as well as municipalities. Possibly one of the biggest hurdles that lie ahead of us, however, is public perception of its use and the intent behind those using it.

The following are a collection of news items that center on the use of UAV’s (i.e. Drones) in a variety of settings. The first is an article in #SDMag that touches on the current state of the industry in conventional security. Frankly, it’s well done and thoroughly researched. Case studies provide an in-depth look at how it’s being used, and surprisingly enough, we learn from Ford Motors that their use of drones has more to do with assisting security personnel than replacing them. Take a look. –Al Colombo

Did the White House Use Drone Killing Technology? | #TpromoCom #WhiteHouse #Drone #Kill | At about 3 a.m. on Monday morning, a small quadcopter drone, or unmanned aerial vehicle, crashed on the White House lawn. White House officials said that the drone, by itself, was unarmed and didn’t represent a threat. Authorities quickly located the owner, a government employee, who has managed (so far at least) to convince the Secret Service that he made an innocent mistake flying his drone outside of the White House in the wee hours of the morning.

Editor’s Note: When I was on an SDM assignment in the heart of Cleveland, I witnessed a drug deal in the basement parking area in the bowels of a high school. The security director was with myself along with the photographer when we saw it.

The security director said, “I think it’s best we leave now before they notice us.”

The basement was mostly clear of vehicles when, at the other end of the parking area, we saw two motor vehicles sitting together with men standing out and about them.

In addition, I saw bullet holes in windows, and the indentation of bullets in door frames and a light pole along the road. Unless you’ve seen something like this before you cannot possibly imagine the scene I saw before me at every turn.

The young man in this video is lucky to still be alive. –Allan Colombo

Workers check the damage to Interstate 880 in Oakland after it collapsed during the Loma Prieta earthqakes.

The unveiling of the new version of UC Berkeley’s MyShake app is a major achievement in the years of efforts to bring California an earthquake early warning system. Until Thursday, only people with the city of Los Angeles’ ShakeAlertLA app and physically present in Los Angeles County could get the alerts.

Richard Allen, director of the Berkeley Seismology Lab, said a few seconds of warning can give people time to drop, cover and hold on before the shaking begins.

Active Shooter Gunshot Detection Guide: When Seconds Count

Campus Safety (logo)

Active Shooter Gunshot Detection Guide: When Seconds Count | #TpromoCom #GunShot #Shooter #Police | Early detection can trigger a host of responses including alerting occupants to the location where shots were fired while triggering building alarms.

Campus Safety (image)

Over the past decade, the number of active shooter incidents in the United States has grown exponentially. According to fbi.gov, there were 214 fatalities from active shooters in 2016, which jumped to 729 just one year later. Most of these shootings (62.8%) occurred in businesses and schools.

However, the reality is active shooter incidents can happen anywhere at any time – meaning no place is immune to an active shooter event. While it is impossible to prevent every active shooter event from occurring, new technology is helping first responders and law enforcement mitigate the threat faster to help reduce the number of casualties.

Tips to avoid card skimmers at gas stations

Tips to avoid card skimmers at gas stations | #TpromoCom #Skimmer #Fraud #Money | Skimmers on card readers at gas station pumps seem to be becoming more commonplace.

According to the Federal Trade Commission, “skimmers are illegal card readers attached to payment terminals. These card readers grab data off a credit or debit card’s magnetic stripe without your knowledge. Criminals sell the stolen data or use it to buy things online. You won’t know your information has been stolen until you get your statement or an overdraft notice.”

Memoreyes’ Unique Outdoor Video Surveillance Systems are Totally Wireless


Memoreyes’ Unique Outdoor Video Surveillance Systems are Totally Wireless | #Memoreyes #TpromoCom #WiFi #VideoSurveillance | The use of outdoor WiFi is often unreliable. But the engineers behind Memoreyes’ unique outdoor video safety systems have solved this problem, providing reliable, steady wireless connectivity between the Model 360 and 100 camera systems. No wires means no trenching and lower installation fees.

The Camera Housing

  • The Entrance System Housing contains seven cameras and two to three micro-computers.
  • Four cameras document cars as they enter, pass by, and depart; and the other three read license plates, including the detection of vehicles that travel the wrong way through an exit.
  • The All Property System housing is a 12’ tall “candy cane” that houses an HD camera, 2 micro-computers, and the Camera Director System.
  • The system runs on low voltage power (no 120VAC power install requirements), and it wirelessly connects to a NVR (Network Video Recorder) through Ethernet radios.
  • Camera housings are weatherproof, including sun shades and are rated from -20°F to 120°F.
  • Anti-tampering features detect camera-pole shaking, which initiates a local verbal warning through an in-housing speaker. This action also directs other cameras in the vicinity to video the event.
