Security Must Handle an Active Biological Threat by using Security Protocols

ISIO (image)By ISIO | International Security Industry Organization www.intsi.org

Security success will depend on the level of situational awareness of the people on the ground (decision-makers) and their reaction speed. Considering the nature of the beast, situational awareness for this pandemic dictates that there are issues of concern that must be addressed and arrested to limit the level of collateral damage.

Security Managers that are using ONLY the standard health related protocols are naive to believe that they are secure. This is an active biological threat whereas the International Security Industry Organization [ISIO] suggests that security protocols must also be considered.

Consequently, this is not a one size fits all kind-of-thing. Security Protocols must be stringently followed when purchasing or using technology, equipment, and the layering of manpower by their skillsets. The reasons for such consider the mood and character traits of the population which will be, abnormal to the extreme of an increase in mentally unwell people besides, erratic behaviour of the masses. This is not purely related to customers that would visit a site but also internally amongst the staff. Desperate people will do desperate things.

The major issue is that the Security Managers could be undermined by the Human Resource manager that could use the full budget solely on health-related protocols. The Financial managers must know that the security managers must secure profit protection besides loss prevention. When the doors of the business shut – there are no profits.

Subsequently, the Security Manager must be confident in their presentation to the Human Resource Manager and Financial officer to earn the trust and respect to seriously allocate to the security department the necessary tools to limit collateral damage. The Security Manager would not feel intimidated to present their position because of lack of knowledge, whereas, there are bodies that can provide the easiest and most effective method to comprehend their own loopholes and suggest cost effective methods. Not knowing the protocols in the purchasing and utilization of the technology, equipment or manpower will cost the company dearly.

Dark Reading logo (images)

Security Industry Association Announces Winners of the 2020 SIA New  Product Showcase Awards | #TpromoCom #SIA #Security #Awards | Leica Geosystems took the top honors in SIA’s annual awards program recognizing innovative security products in partnership with ISC West.

The Security Industry Association (SIA) has announced the 2020 winners of the SIA New Product Showcase Awards, the flagship awards program in partnership with ISC West recognizing innovative security products, services and solutions. Top among the winners – who were recognized July 9 during a virtual awards show – was Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, receiving the 2020 Best New Product Award.

Since its inception in 1979, the SIA New Product Showcase has been the security industry’s premier product awards program. New products are reviewed by a panel of judges with extensive industry experience, and in 2020, following significant deliberations, the 30 judges presented awards for technologies covering 23 product and service categories.

Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, received the Best New Product honor for its 3D Surveillance With Leica BLK247, submitted in the Emerging Technologies category.

Call TpromoCom for web design and content (image)The 3D Surveillance With Leica BLK247 is “a first-of-its-kind reality capture sensor for building security and operations,” said Leica Geosystems. “It is the latest product in the company’s BLK product line, a collection of reality capture, scanning and photogrammetry hardware and software. The BLK247 offers continuous, 24/7 LiDAR-based 3D monitoring and change detection within spaces. It does this using LiDAR, 3D digital fencing and continuous scanning to monitor buildings and spaces 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.”

The prestigious Judges’ Choice Award was presented to Suprema Inc. for the Airfob Patch product, submitted in the Access Control Devices & Peripherals Hardware – Wireless category.

“Airfob Patch is the world’s first mobile-to-RF-card signal translator, enabling mobile phones to communicate with the existing RF card readers,” said Suprema Inc. “Wire, batteries nor construction is required for installation. Airfob Patch charges itself by using the existing RF field signals transmitted from the RF reader. It transforms the RF fields into its own power source.”

Additionally, John Spooner – executive vice president at Alarm Detection Systems and an active volunteer judge in the SIA New Product Showcase program – received the New Product Showcase Merit Award, which recognizes an individual or company who, through their support of the New Product Showcase, demonstrates a commitment to the vision and mission of the program, contributes to its success and promotes the advancement of SIA and the security industry overall.

“SIA is proud to present John Spooner with the 2020 SIA New Product Showcase Merit Award; John has not missed a single SIA New Product Showcase event since he began as an active volunteer judge in the program 17 years ago,” said Chris Grniet, chair of the SIA New Product Showcase Committee. “He has always been a fair and honest participant and has never hesitated to jump in and help whenever we need him. He has been exemplary in his commitment, participation and ability to help the group reach consensus.”

“Following hours of panel-driven judging and technology demonstrations, SIA is thrilled to recognize the 2020 winners of the SIA New Product Showcase Awards for their innovative products, services and contributions representing the best new offerings in the market,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “SIA applauds all the honorees who received awards in 2020 and particularly Leica Geosystems and Suprema Inc. for standing out in this highly competitive field of entrants to earn the Best New Product and Judges’ Choice distinctions. Additionally, we congratulate John Spooner on receiving the 2020 New Product Showcase Merit Award in recognition of his many valuable contributions to this premier program.”

OPINION: Eliminating Local Police Agencies Across America

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

The Integration of Security And IoT

Verdafero offers an IoT and Utilities monitoring service (image)

The Integration of Security And IoT | #Verdafero #Security #IoT #Monitoring |  Security has many faces, whether it’s the hardened, Grade 1 locks on all the perimeter man doors throughout a building, electronic access control, video surveillance cameras, fire detection equipment, or the IoT devices that monitors a variety of critical services, such as  temperature, humidity, air flow, pressure, or the integrity and quality of any one of several utilities that clients depend on.

If there was ever a time when integration between the various facets of security, life safety, and general commercial Internet of Things (IoT) might occur, it’s now.

Monitoring Electric Utility usage is one of many applications for Verdafero's Cloud-based, AI-driven service (image)The Central Monitoring Station (CMS) that Security Integrators and Alarm Dealers use is equipped to monitor the physical security elements of a facility, but not necessarily IoT devices that output analog data. Not only that, but traditional CMS’ are not readily capable of analyzing multiple streams of Big Data (BD) for anomalies that might occur. But there is a solution to this problem that is capable of including the positive attributes of a CMS.

In the area of Utility BD, “Verdafero’s Utility and IoT monitoring and analytics platform uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) to capture, analyze, report and predict variable, broad-based utility expense information found from many data sources,” says Alastair Hood, Ph.D. and CEO of Verdafero.

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.

Verdafero’s Water Utility Monitoring Saves Big!

Verdafero monitors any type of utility, even in a chemical plant (image)

Verdafero’s Water Utility Monitoring Saves Big! | #Verdafero #WaterMonitoring #UtilityMonitoring | The overall cost of metered water is rising. Anyone who owns a home or business in an area where water is provided by a municipality knows how true this is.

According to CBS News, “Americans this year will pay an average of $104 per month in water and wastewater bills, up more than 30% in less than a decade” (https://cbsn.ws/3fJxyi4).

As an alarm dealer or security integrator, you may be wondering, “How can I sell Utility Monitoring to an established client when it’s  hard enough to approach them about updating their aged alarm system?” 

The answer to that is simple, you educate them as to what Utility Monitoring can do for them. First and foremost, with Verdafero’s Cloud-based analytics, you can alert them when a leak occurs. This same service also can alert your client when a piece of equipment is in the process of requiring maintenance. 

Because Vertafero’s Cloud-based analytical computing system uses Big Data, Machine Learning (ML), you can monitor several utilities at the same time, such  as: 

      • Water
      • Electricity
      • Natural Gas
      • Propane
      • Fuel Oil
      • and others…

Monitoring is accomplished using IoT-based sub-meters equipped with WiFi or Ethernet, in conjunction with your regular central station. Verdafero also can suggest one if required; and we can help you put it all together!
