TheSecurityLion blog is aligned with Security Matters (the premier UK information, opinion and education resource for security managers, directors, consultants and installers/integrators as well as business continuity managers and dedicated cyber security specialists).
The blog is written by multi-award winning journalist Brian Sims BA (Hons) Hon FSyI, Editor of Security Matters (which is published by Western Business Media Limited) and the former Editor of Risk UK, Risk Xtra and The Paper at Pro-Activ Publications. Brian also served as the Media Solutions Manager for UBM Live’s Security and Fire Portfolio and is the former Editor of Security Management Today (SMT) and its digital platform SMT Online (the dedicated security management channel within Info4Security).
Having worked as a professional journalist for 30 years, Brian has now written about and commentated on the security business sector from its very heart for over two decades.
TheSecurityLion’s main remit? To evaluate and offer incisive comment on pressing issues of the day, and tackle that point at which the security and fire sectors meet and mix with the Government, policing and the wider economic and social agendas.
As is the case in relation to the main Security Matters website, Brian – who’s an Honorary Fellow of The Security Institute – is extremely keen to elicit your comments on all topics posted here, as well as suggestions for subjects of pressing interest that you would like to see covered in future editions of this blog, the Security Matters print publication and, indeed, its website.
Security Matters is the premier print and digital information source for news, reviews and opinion relating to the security business sector.
If you have any form of feedback on this site, please do feel free to e-mail Brian at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mention ‘TheSecurityLion’ in your subject line and he’ll assess your views.
You never know… Those opinions could lead to a Security Matters Forum, a specialist feature in the journal or even help towards a major goal we all want to see come to fruition… Security management recognised for the genuine profession that it is today.
In the meantime, enjoy reading this often hard-hitting and controversial blog. Feel free to link through to all and any posts and elements of this site.
If you don’t tell Brian what’s happening in the security and fire communities, he cannot tell the rest of the world about it, so don’t be backward in coming forward!
Best regards… and we look forward to hearing from you…
