Will #cameras take over the market for perimeter #security? | #ESC_LLC #VideoSurveillance | How will perimeter security look in the future? Most of the experts that Detektor and securityworldmarket.com met up with believe that cameras will not take over completely, but there are exceptions http://ow.ly/Q9mb30qQSV5

OPINION: Many years ago I wrote an opinion piece for the ISIO where I described intrusion detection/security at some future time. Here it is in a nutshell: 1) Cameras will be wireless, 2) they’ll be peel and stick, 3) they will provide a 360 forward view, 4) you can choose your view in software.

Secondly, there will be no switches on doors or motion detection. There will be no access control card readers, no smartphone entry options, etc. Traditional security will be replaced by video surveillance systems that uses AI with facial recognition. Anyone approaching the door who is known by the system, authorized at that door and that time  period will be automatically granted access. Tailgating also will be handled by the AI portion of the system. 

After hours, someone breaking into the facility will be met by an alarm and the perpetrator will be investigated by a roving  mobile unit equipped with audio and video. Police (if they will exist) will be alerted straight away. 

Those that press a button on a door speaker will have an opportunity to converse with the AI in an attempt to ascertain who they are and what they want. If they proceed to pry the door open, jimmy the lock, etc., the police will be notified and an alarm will sound locally.

Incidentally, if the Left is successful in having all law enforcement defunded and removed from protecting our communities; after the murders, rapes, robberies and other crimes rise sharply, police will be brought back to protect the innocent. Either that or warlords and community militias will spring up across the land and the world will be cast back into a dark ages-style environment.  –Al Colombo

OPINION: Eliminating Local Police Agencies Across America

Allan B. Colombo, Tech Writer
Allan B. Colombo, Tpromo.Com

With all the anti-police rhetoric going on with certain individuals in government and in the private sector, I’d like to remind everyone how important and critical it is to have quality police officers on the job in our communities.

I’m more than tired of  hearing city officials and others degrade the need for law enforcement. I cannot even imagine what life would be like in our communities without police on the streets. Yes, there are a few bad applies, but look at the goofy city officials who are calling for the defunding of police departments in their own cities! Talk about bad apples, they are certainly rotten to the core.

Police shows being cancelled, schools calling for the revocation of contracts with police officers in our public schools, where does it stop? If Sheriffs and local city Police Chiefs were to offer firearm training for school officials, the very same communities would say no to that. We talk about Black Lives Matter, what about our children? What about store owners?

Law and Order begins with Police on the streets (image)
Law and Order begins with Police on the streets.

If regular, common people that can still think clearly do not stand up and support our law enforcement agencies, we’re going to one day soon turn around and find total chaos and anarchy in their absence. We can all start by voicing support online. That’s the very least we can do!

In my humble opinion, after decades of study, I believe that local and state authorities now calling for the defunding of local law enforcement may intend to call upon the United Nations to  provide law and order in their communities. We cannot allow this to happen. Please stand up for our men and women in blue!  —Al Colombo, Security eNews

Breakthrough in solar power by MIT (image)Cities ‘could generate hundreds of times more solar power than they do today’ | #TpromoCom #SolarPower #PV #GreenEnergy | While applauding the rooftop solar progress of dozens of cities, a report from Environment Texas offers policy options for further progress. Per capita solar leaders are Honolulu, San Diego, Albuquerque, San Jose and Burlington, Vermont.

Twenty-six U.S. cities have at least 50 watts of PV per capita—and they’re not all in the sunniest states.

Honolulu is in a league of its own, with 841 watts of PV per capita, as a study from the nonprofit Environment Texas reports. San Diego, with 295 watts per capita, leads the rest of the pack.

Security issues considered in a world depression

ISIO (image)Security issues considered in a world depression | #TpromoCom #Security #GreatDepression | The Security Industry must consider the implications on security implications that took place in the 1930’s during the great depression

In 1929 the great depression brought the world into a time of despair that lasted 10 years. Covid-19 is the root cause which surmounts the issues even more so. This dynamic of the ‘perfect storm’ will create calamities and shifting crime into different directions causing the security industry to shrink in some areas and grow in others.

This period gave rise to certain types of crime being the birthing of the organized crime gangs dealing in bootlegging and prostitution, besides the entry of the ultra-right wingers where xenophobia led to the murder of millions.

The manufacturing industry industry took a major blow during the depression, the banks had their issues along with other sectors in the economic machine took its toll. Now, with the 4th industrial revolution is on the rise and will have its own unique issues and crime related.

Call TpromoCom for web design and content (image)The physical security will have to contend with issues that will increase dramatically. We comprehend that there has been a distinctive increase in migration over the past few years, whereas, the vulnerability landscape has changed dramatically. Polarized neighborhoods have grown in size and various countries experienced increased support for pro-nationalist parties. The crime related in cross cultural attacks of grievously bodily harm, rape and murder has increased along with demonstrations and riots breaking out periodically. This work is not going to research right now the crime and damages related to all of the above and other issues, however, one cannot fathom the possible outcomes related to this scenario in theater. [Ref Critical Thinking the X Factor in Criminology, Security & Risk by Juan Kirsten 2018]

Man’s basic need of food, shelter and drink [alcohol – (prohibition crime in the 30’s)] besides medicine or medical support will be heightened and calling for all related buildings and logistic services related as soft targets. This comprehension of this knowledge will give direction to the security industry whereas, security consultants, companies, risk managers, investigators and trainers must comprehend their position, predict the changes in their location and field of interest to survive this debilitating period

This scenario will impact on the skills required now which must be relevant with distinct purpose. There may be a rush by educators to make certificates available but all-the-information is not in just yet and therefore, the most important step is to rapidly disseminate information in short bursts with short predictions within days and weeks. The educators and regulators consider protocols for emergency and disaster first before promoting modules and upgrading on existing skills for relevancy. Some of these protocols can be found in ISIO because this is not a one size fits all kind-of-thing. There are standard protocols and then there are uniquely designed protocols for distinct sectors and using specific tech or equipment.

Crime related to covid-10 [Juan Kirsten 2020] predicted issues that have occurred recently which is based on [Criminology and Security Investigation Management Ref Juan Kirsten 2019] which uncovered new crime, uncovered evolving copycat crime and opportunities(methods) to limit or mitigate the collateral damage. This knowledge is now being used to comprehend the economic depression impacting the world in this moment in time in-keeping with calamities and crime.

The International Security Industry Organization [ISIO] is such a body that will be providing pertinent and relative information to its member base covering all sectors. It calls upon serious like-minded practitioners to participate in its quest.

Trump administration moves against Chinese telecom firms citing national security | #TpromoCom #NationalSecurity #China #TeleCommunications | The Trump administration is moving aggressively on national security grounds against Chinese telecom firms, with key agencies this week recommending that a subsidiary of China’s largest landline provider have its U.S. license revoked.

The advice to pull a license from China Telecom Americas was prompted by long-standing concerns that the firm, whose parent company is state-owned, poses unacceptable risks of Chinese espionage and disruption of U.S. networks, U.S. officials said.

NEC Developing Facial Recognition Platform for Star Alliance Frequent Flyers

facial recognition, FAA, airlines (image)#NEC Developing Facial Recognition Platform for Star Alliance Frequent Flyers | #TpromoCom #FacialRecognition #Airline #Security | The opt-in platform will allow passengers of Star Alliance’s member airlines to move through various checkpoints without the need for a passport or a boarding pass, using only biometric authentication to enter lounges or pass through boarding gates and check-in kiosks at participating airports.

The proposed system is expected to launch in the first quarter of 2020. Star Alliance members will be able to let their passengers use a mobile device to enroll in the program, and the latter will only need to do so once to enable biometric authentication when flying with any Star Alliance airline at an airport that supports the biometric technology.
