BSIA to host industry focused launches on its stand at IFSEC

by Geny Caloisi
The BSIA will be hosting a number of industry focused launches on its stand (IF2850) during IFSEC International which returns to the live arena in May. A particular highlight is the release of its research report into the video surveillance market in the United Kingdom on the 18th May.

The report is entitled ‘The Bigger Picture’ and provides an update to the BSIA’s research report ‘The Picture is Not Clear’ published in 2013. The 2022 report  has been produced for the BSIA by research and advisory company Anekanta Consulting. It extends further than the original report covering the number, type and use of video surveillance cameras in the UK.

The full report includes a detailed analysis of the types of cameras used and for what purpose, cloud storage trends and a study of end user applications and future trends across 11 sectors including retail, transportation and CNI.

Mike Reddington, Chief Executive, BSIA, said: “The need for video surveillance cameras continues to grow at an accelerated rate due to the ever-present threat of terrorism in public places and an increasing desire by the private sector to improve the safety and wellbeing of employees in the workplace. The threat of criminal damage and theft in the commercial sectors also remain consistent drivers for more video surveillance cameras.”

At IFSEC, the Association will be showcasing initiatives covering areas from both the electronic and security personnel sectors that will benefit its members and the wider industry, and everyone is invited to meet with the specialists involved.

Starting on Tuesday 17 May, 12pm Security Industry Authority (SIA) and the City Security Council (CSC) will launch the Skills Board. The board has been set up with an aim to focus on future skills and careers, leading to a more professionalized private security industry and one that can attract and retain the talent it needs to prosper into the future.

At 12.30pm, in conjunction with its Security Officer Services (SOS) section members, the BSIA will launch a major campaign devoted to raising the profile of those operating in the sector and on the frontline in the key areas of People, Places and Property. The campaign is designed to increase the awareness of the breadth and diversity of the work undertaken by those operating in the SOS sector and enhance the perception of this vital work carried out by professional security officers.

At 3.00pm on the same day, Director of Security & Export, John MacAskill MSyl will be hosting an Export Council networking session which includes a presentation by UK Defence & Security Exports (UKDSE).

This UK video market research report includes a detailed analysis of the types of cameras used and for what purpose, cloud storage trends and a comprehensive study of end user applications and future trends across 11 sectors including retail, transportation and CNI. A selection of key headline statistics will be shared during this session.

At 3.00pm UKDSE will be presenting on the topic of what the UK Government can do to assist export in the post Brexit landscape.
