‘People, Property, Places: Professionally Protected’ – The BSIA Industry Campaign

Working on behalf of its Security Officer Services Section members and the wider industry, the British Security Industry Association has devised a major national campaign that aims to increase the profile and awareness of the crucial work that security officers transact on a 24/7/365 basis to protect people, property and places.

The new campaign is also about highlighting how a career in the industry – and the provision of professional security as a service – carries a diverse range of benefits. The prime objectives of the new ‘People, Property, Places: Professionally Protected’ campaign, which itself builds on the ‘Hidden Workforce – Perceptions’ campaign initiated in 2020 – are to raise awareness of security officers and their work, improve retention and recruitment by highlighting the myriad benefits of the sector and also promote the benefits of purchasing professional security services among the end user community.

‘Convergence: The Unification of Physical and Cyber Security’

ASIS International has put a great deal of effort into analysing the relationship between physical security, cyber security and business continuity in modern organisations with a view towards determining Best Practice for creating more effective and cost-efficient security and risk-focused operations. Despite years of predictions about the inevitability of security convergence, it remains the case that relatively few organisations have converged their physical and cyber security functions. This session at conference will examine trends and progress with converging environments. Results to date are positive, but there’s still much work to be done.

Integrated Service Delivery: Differentiation and the Role of Technology

The scramble for ‘tech’ advancement and adoption is only quickening in the current global crisis fuelled by the COVID-19 pandemic. The latest GDP figures for the UK point towards a sharp and deep recession and one that may take some time to ameliorate. The loss of jobs in the economy is going to take its toll on the Government’s spending and investment plans. In a similar vein, plans for companies in terms of new investment could take a hit.

Set against that backdrop, service delivery must lead from the front and adapt to what is now an ever-changing world and business environment. As this session at conference will evidence, it’s all about being ready to invest time and collateral in new technologies that will make a valuable difference to a client’s estate and/or benefit its overall productivity.

‘Security Apprenticeships and Training’

This session is set to examine the current state of play when it comes to security apprenticeships and training across the UK. As an organisation, Skills for Security works with employers to set National Occupational Standards and improve security skills and professionalism by providing access to training, apprenticeships and security qualifications for individuals employed in security roles across the UK. Learning programmes are exclusively tailored for apprentices in the security industry, and more specifically a niche part of that industry: fire and security emergency alarm systems.
