For icomply, the theme at IFSEC International 2013 was ‘looking back, looking forward’. With this in mind, we asked Dave Wilkinson, Technical Manager of the British Security Industry Association (BSIA), about the future of the security industry.
“The future of security is integration. Security companies, whether electronic, manned or physical security need to adapt to ensure their continued success. Integration of services and technologies has been about for a long time, but more recently has become more prominent as a model for business success.
Not only is this being done at a practical level, such as integrating facility management with, let’s say, access control and intruder alarms, or perhaps combining manned guarding / key-holding response with detector activated CCTV, but this has also been recognised by industry groups who are creating interoperability standards such as ONVIF/PSIA on the field of CCTV.
