Europol hosts inaugural ‘Project Diamond’ Conference on jewellery theft and burglary

From Tuesday 17 January to Thursday 19 January, Europol hosted its first international conference on jewellery robbery and burglary under the banner ‘Project Diamond’. SaferGems – a joint initiative established by the British Security Industry Association, T.H. March Insurance Brokers and the National Association of Jewellers (NAJ) – was invited to deliver a presentation at the event, which took place at Europol’s headquarters in The Hague.

‘Project Diamond’ was initially created as a follow-up to ‘Project Pink Panther’, which was initiated by Interpol back in 2007 in an effort to assist law enforcement around the world in apprehending members of the international network of jewellery thieves that had originated from the Western Balkans.

Interpol’s project ended last year, and it was then decided that ‘Project Diamond’ would be more extensive in its focus, targeting criminal networks involved in jewellery robberies and burglaries from Europe as well as the Baltic Sea and Western Black Sea areas.

In attendance were over 70 experts from nearly all of the EU Member States, as well as other representatives from third parties from Europe, Asia and the Americas, including private jewellery and watch companies.

Intelligence officer Lee Henderson represented SaferGems, an initiative sponsored by the NAJ and T.H. March Insurance that co-ordinates data on jewellery crime and facilitates information sharing between jewellers, pawnbrokers and the police. At the event, Henderson delivered a presentation about the background of SaferGems, crime trends and statistics, the SaferGems Watch Register and the initiative’s success stories.

Positive support and feedback

“The presentation was very well received by the experts in attendance and raised many questions from the audience,” stated Henderson. “We also received positive support and feedback from our colleagues that attended on behalf of the Metropolitan Police Service and the West Midlands Police.”

The project comes at a vital time, with the EU facing increased trends in jewellery robbery and burglaries. It has been reported by Europol that these criminals are becoming more violent in their tactics, using heavy vehicles in order to infiltrate jewellery stores and putting the lives of customers and staff at risk.

The aim of the conference was to harness the existing knowledge and expertise of attendees in order to discuss the best ways in which to fight this rising tide of crime.

Given the increased trends in jewellery robbery and burglaries, the conference came at a crucial time and provided SaferGems with an opportunity to share information and intelligence with police officers from the New York Police Department, The Garda, Federal Police Belgium, Organised Crime Finland and Antwerp Diamond District.

Henderson concluded: “As a result of our participation in the conference, law enforcement agencies from across the world are now more aware of the capabilities of the SaferGems initiative and the successes that it continues to have.”

Professor Martin Gill CSyP wins 2016 Imbert Prize bestowed by ASC

Professor Martin Gill CSyP, director of Perpetuity Research and founder of the Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs), has won the prestigious Imbert Prize bestowed by the Association of Security Consultants (ASC). The winner of the Associations segment of the annual Imbert Prize was announced at CONSEC 2016, which took place at the London Heathrow Marriott Hotel.

The Associations Prize is awarded to an individual in recognition of his or her demonstrably significant contribution to the security business sector across the previous year, with nominations made by ASIS UK, the British Security Industry Association, the International Professional Security Association and The Security Institute and adjudged by the ASC’s own Awards Panel.

The Imbert Prize itself highlights the ASC’s mission to encourage the advancement and professional development of the disciplines of risk and security management within the UK. The prize is named in honour of Lord Peter Imbert, former Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service and Lord Lieutenant of Greater London, who has been a prominent figure in security and policing for many years now.

martingillawards

This award comes hot on the heels of Professor Gill receiving The ASIS President’s Award for Merit. This was awarded to Gill at ASIS International’s 62nd Annual Seminar and Exhibits (otherwise known as ‘ASIS 2016’), which ran in Orlando from 12–15 September. Gill received this particular award for his demonstrated dedication to the field of security and his assistance in advancing the profession as a whole, highlighted through his work in the field of security education, his service on the Board of the ASIS Foundation and the development and implementation of the aforementioned OSPAs.

Referencing this duo of prestigious honours, Gill told Risk UK: “To me, it’s the ultimate accolade to be recognised by your peers, and I’m both extremely grateful and humbled by the honour. I’m acutely aware of how many deserving people there are out there in security undertaking excellent work which is often unheralded. It’s ironic that I receive two prestigious awards when one of my main commitments is to recognise the truly deserving security people around the world via the OSPAs (www.theospas.com). I would like to thank all those people who continue to support me and my work.”

TDSi’s md John Davies recognised by BSIA for Contribution to Exporting

John Davies, the managing director of integrated security manufacturer TDSi, has been awarded the 2016 BSIA Chairman’s Award for Contribution to Exporting during the BSIA’s Annual Luncheon, which was held at the London Hilton on Park Lane. The award recognises Davies’ significant contribution to promoting UK export initiatives within the security sector as chairman of the BSIA’s Export Council.

Commenting on the award, Davies told Risk UK: “I’m highly honoured to receive this special award from the BSIA. As the head of the Trade Association’s Export Council, my key task is to ensure that the British security industry understands the benefits and opportunities involved when it comes to engaging with markets around the world. Given the current political situation in the UK surrounding Brexit, it has never been more important for businesses here to understand and work with markets internationally.”

john-davies-contribution-to-exporting-2016

John Davies (left) receives the BSIA Chairman’s Award for Contribution to Exporting

Daren Wood, membership and export services manager for the BSIA, stated: “John Davies has been a driving force and a keen supporter of the BSIA’s Export Council, serving twice as its chairman. First elected vice-chairman of the Export Council back in 2008, John has worked very closely with the Association to provide advice and guidance to other security companies who were less experienced exporters.”

Wood continued: “John then took over as chairman of the Export Council in 2010, becoming a strong figurehead for the industry. Around the same time, he served on the UKTI DSO’s Security Sector Advisory Group, assisting the Government in identifying security export opportunities. John started his second tenure as chairman of the Export Council last year and continues to be a strong voice for exporting in the industry. He now serves concurrently on the Home Office’s Security Resilience and Growth Partnership as an authoritative voice on exporting in the security sector.”

Vital role to play

Davies believes the UK security industry has a vital role to play in markets as far afield as North America and Asia. “What has struck me, having worked with the BSIA [and TDSi on a commercial level], is how well respected UK providers and products are around the world. For instance, TDSi produces all of its products in the UK, but we have a very healthy sales pipeline into China, which fully recognises the quality and insight that features so heavily in our offer. Although China has a huge manufacturing base of its own, customers there are extremely shrewd and like to buy the best solutions on the market. They harbour a huge respect for UK suppliers.”

TDSi has a strong presence in many security markets around the world. For example, Davies has lead the company to considerable commercial success in the People’s Republic of China, including a deal signed last year for a five-year strategic co-operation agreement with China Rail Chen Bang Technology Ltd. This will see TDSi’s technology used on rail and metro projects throughout China, and will eventually include 20,000 stations on the China Railway network.

TDSi’s sales in China and Asia increased by 33% last year, and the company has a strong presence in markets such as Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines. The business also has ongoing growth in West Africa, particularly in Nigeria, and is keenly looking to expand into other African territories.

The company’s French office, which is based near Paris, also provides access to the considerable French-speaking regions of North Africa and the Middle East, as well as being a hub within Europe. The business is also looking to expand its technical and commercial expertise further into the North American market in the very near future.

Huge scope for progress

Davies added: “The British and European markets are steadily expanding, but there’s huge scope in many other markets around the world. In my role at the BSIA, I’m very keen to ensure British security businesses fully understand the opportunities on offer and don’t let perceived language and cultural barriers get in the way of the exciting sales opportunities on offer.”

In conclusion, Davies informed Risk UK: “The UK has some of the best scientific and technological minds in the world, with a great reputation for quality and innovation. It’s a privilege to chair the BSIA’s Export Council. I’m passionate about its aims.”

BSIA member companies report on “successful” Intersec 2016

Members of the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) have returned from Intersec reporting a successful exhibition for UK companies.

The three-day show – held at the Dubai World Trade Centre between 17 and 19 January – is seen by many as the most important security exhibition in the Middle East region. The event plays a pivotal role in enabling UK companies to meet with potential customers, existing distributors or partners and serves as a platform for launching new products into the Middle East market.

Intersec has been a key fixture for many BSIA members who exhibit year-on-year, and the show continues to attract new exhibitors keen to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the event.

One BSIA member company, RGL Electronics Ltd, has already been active in the Middle East for a number of years and attended Intersec 2016 as an exhibitor for the first time.

Geoff Jones, director of RGL Electronics Ltd, said: “By exhibiting at Intersec this year, we had the opportunity to be in front of the people that really matter, and we were able to build upon what’s already a major marketplace for the RGL brand.”

Jones continued: “We showcased our range of access control products and a disabled toilet alarm, all of which attracted a good response from visitors. Indeed, the quality of the contacts we made on site was very high, and I fully anticipate that some of these contacts will develop into orders over the coming months.”

He concluded: “Something that struck me during the show was how much larger the scale of the projects in the Middle East are compared to those in Europe. The sheer scale of the developments in the Middle East offer promising opportunities for RGL and, indeed, other UK companies.”

BSIAIntersec2016

Excellence in design and innovation

Much of the interest in UK security products in the Middle East comes from the long history of excellence in design and innovation. This was certainly evident at Intersec.

Storm Interface – another BSIA member company – launched its Storm S60 range of mullion format readers at the show and duly received a fantastic response from prospective customers.

Peter Jarvis, senior executive vice-president at Storm Interface, commented: “The response to the Storm S60 was absolutely astonishing. When developing the product, we found that there was a real need for a solution that wouldn’t affect the aesthetics of landmark buildings where, typically, you wouldn’t want to drill into the building materials to affix a traditional reader. The S60 has been designed so that it can fit into a door frame, thus removing the need to attach it to glass, marble or other similar materials.”

Jarvis added: “We’ve found that there’s a real demand in the Middle East for products that meet the design specifications of landmark buildings, and particularly so in Dubai.”

In conclusion, Jarvis told Risk UK: “Our attendance at Intersec has been particularly successful. We’ve been able to talk to all of our target contacts, including existing distributors in the UAE and the regional managers responsible for some of our recently-agreed distribution partnerships.”

Variety of international visitors

A large part of the attraction for UK companies to exhibit at Intersec is the sheer variety of international visitors attending the show, both from the wider Middle East and further afield.

John Davies, managing director of TDSi and chairman of the BSIA’s Export Council, said: “TDSi had a highly successful appearance at Intersec 2016. We gained 30% extra visitors compared to the previous year, some of which came from a wide range of countries including the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Turkey, as well as further afield from Angola, India and Sri Lanka. The overall quality of visitors at the show was excellent. The majority of people we spoke to were working on active projects, so we enjoyed both productive and substantive conversations on all three days.”

Davies continued: “Our integration to wireless access control products from ASSA ABLOY and Simons Voss created a lot of interest on our stand, as did our new Time and Attendance software packages. Visitors were also drawn to our new reader range, both for the aesthetics and the functional multi-technology capability. As always, our strength in terms of being able to offer open platforms for security integration proved very popular with visitors to the stand.”

In conclusion, Davies told Risk UK: “We were delighted to receive confirmation of a project win in Abu Dhabi at Intersec 2016 and expect to close projects in Kuwait, Saudi and Qatar within the next few weeks as a result of conversations at the show.”

Uplift in validated leads

Remsdaq also experienced an uplift in validated leads, estimating that the business recorded approximately 25% more than last year.

Alan Hardy, EMEA sales manager, explained: “It was an extremely satisfying exhibition with unprecedented numbers of good quality contacts visiting our stand. There was an extremely positive reaction from all visitors to our EntroWatch, EntroStar and EntroPad range of access control solutions and considerable interest shown for StarWatch, our enterprise product range, as well as Sabre, our fibre optic perimeter intrusion detection products. We’re confident that our business in the region will increase significantly as a direct result of our participation in the show.”

Texecom also found the show to be a great platform for demonstrating its professional electronic security solutions – including the Premier Elite Series – to the Middle East and beyond.

Clym Brown, the company’s marketing director, explained: “We see themes from Intersec that resonate with global market challenges – the proliferation of advanced wireless security devices, home network and smart phone connectivity for users taking control of their own security and increased connectivity and integrated features for both commercial and security applications. At Texecom, our product range caters for small, low-risk applications right through to high risk, high value and complex installations. At Intersec, we found our breadth of system offerings, using the same architecture and programming structure throughout, was really well received by visitors looking to provide the highest levels of security for a wide range of applications.”

Excellent representation from the UK

73 UK companies took advantage of the many benefits that come with exhibiting as part of the UK Pavilion, which was organised by the BSIA.

Benefits included a prominent stand position in the main section of the show, logistical and on-site support, hassle-free stand design and build and increased exposure to visitors through a strong UK brand presence.

Peter Jarvis commented: “We’ve been really impressed with the level of support that the BSIA has provided, both before and during Intersec. An association with the BSIA is absolutely essential at these types of exhibition. The BSIA’s excellent organisation of the UK Pavilion this year in 2016 has freed us up to come here and do what we need to. In short, meet with target contacts, promote our products and make valuable sales.”

*The BSIA is also organising UK Pavilions at Security Essen and IFSEC South-East Asia, both of which run in September 2016. For more information, or to enquire about exhibiting as part of the UK Pavilion, please contact the BSIA by calling: 0845 389 3889 or send an e-mail to: d.wood@bsia.co.uk

BSIA members to showcase ‘Best of British’ at Intersec Dubai 2016

With the 18th Edition of Intersec Dubai a little over a month away, British Security Industry Association members are gearing up for what promises to be one of the industry’s biggest trade shows to date.

As the Trade Association representing the UK’s private security industry, the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) – through its dedicated Export Council – continues to play a pivotal role in forging productive links between UK security companies and overseas buyers (including those in the Middle East).

Intersec is deemed pivotal to this process, with the BSIA – which is attending the show for the 18th year – having a number of members on hand across the three-day event to offer valuable face-to-face advice and guidance on the latest products and services that British security businesses have to offer.

Underlining the importance of the Middle East region to member companies, the BSIA’s Export Council – a dedicated forum for BSIA member companies focused on extending their business to overseas markets – has again conducted its annual State of the Nation survey which considers global export trends.

This year’s survey revealed that there continues to be a high demand for British security products and services, with 60% of respondents citing an increase in overseas business during 2015 and a further 30% stating that the level of business had remained the same.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Further increases in overseas trade are expected for 2016, with a clear focus on the Middle East as an important market for the UK’s security sector. Almost half of all respondents identified the Middle East as the single most important target market. 80% of respondents are looking to increase their level of business in this important region during 2016.

Positive international reputation

Daren Wood, membership and export services manager at the BSIA, commented: “The UK enjoys a positive international reputation when it comes to the provision of security products and services, at least in part due to the innovation which has become synonymous with the UK’s security business sector. Over half of the respondents to this year’s State of the Nation survey attended Intersec Dubai in 2015, which reflects the clear importance that this region has for UK security exporters and the pivotal role that Intersec plays in helping UK businesses to forge productive trade links with buyers in the Middle East.”

The 2016 edition of Intersec – which takes place between 17-19 January – features a number of BSIA member companies who will be highlighting their latest products, duly taking advantage of the show’s international audience which attracted over 27,000 visitors in 2015.

BSIA members exhibiting at Intersec this year include:

Remsdaq: Stand S2-F25 (UK Pavilion)

Remsdaq will be launching the EntroPad reader range, a highly secure read/write smart card reader solution supporting iCLASS, Mifare, NFC and Felica technologies. The EntroPad range includes English and Arabic keypads and hands-free variants.

Also on its stand, Remsdaq will be exhibiting the multi-award winning and cost-effective PoE access control solution EntroStar, which is designed to work with the intuitive license-free EntroWatch software.

Remsdaq will also be exhibiting the enterprise class StarWatch Integrated Security Management System and Sabre, its field-proven range of fibre optic perimeter intrusion products which now includes optional IP and mesh network connectivity.

Alan Hardy, Remsdaq’s security sales manager for the EMEA region, explained: “Intersec is a key event in the Remsdaq calendar. It enables us to showcase the latest additions to our security solutions portfolio and demonstrates an ongoing commitment to our valued customers.”

Hardy continued: “The Middle East remains an integral part of the future growth strategy for our business. Intersec has grown into one of the largest security events in recent years, and we look forward to another great show this year.”

RGL Electronics: Stand S1-G20 (UK Pavilion)

RGL Electronics will be showcasing its new Disabled Toilet Alarm which has been specifically developed for the large projects prevalent in the Middle East region. The company will also be exhibiting some new additions to its access control product solutions.

Geoff Jones, director of RGL Electronics, stated: “RGL has been active in the Middle East for many years. We’ve built on our successes through participation in various large and prestigious projects throughout the region.”

He added: “Intersec has been an extremely important exhibition in promoting the RGL brand and the development of our customer base. By exhibiting at Intersec in January, we hope to meet the people that really matter, such as architects, specifiers and integrators. Intersec will also be an opportunity for us to promote new products and build upon what’s already a major marketplace for the RGL brand.”

www.rgl-electronics.co.uk

GJD Manufacturing: Stand S4-F39 (IMCI Stand)

A regular exhibitor at Intersec, GJD will be demonstrating the DygiZone lighting controller and lighting detectors.

The DygiZone is a four-zone lighting controller available in silver or white housings. The advanced, feature-rich controller provides intelligent security lighting control which enhances security, saves energy and minimises light pollution.

Some of the lighting detectors being demonstrated include the Opal XL, which is an external PIR detector with an adjustable detection range of between 10 and 35 metres. When used with GJD’s lighting controllers, 24-hour indication and movement-activated lighting for a timed period is automatically provided.

The Mini Opal will also be demonstrated. This is an adjustable range PIR detector with front and rear tamper switches, as well as sliding curtains to aid installation and field of view alignment.

The advanced detector only activates security lights when an event has occurred. This ensures lighting is only on when needed, saving both energy and money for users on larger sites.

Ana Maria Sagra-Smith, GJD’s international sales and marketing director, enthused: “The Middle East is a key market for GJD, which is why we regularly exhibit at Intersec. We’re really looking forward to exhibiting again in 2016 and showcasing our cutting-edge security solutions to the Middle East market, as well as meeting with both existing and prospective customers.”

www.gjd.co.uk

Storm-AXS: Stand S1-H29 (UK Pavilion)

Storm will be revealing important new additions to its range of vandal-resistant, outdoor-rated access control keypads.

The increasing use of glass and hard decorative finishes in both corporate and retail buildings creates a unique challenge when installing access control systems. Keypads and contactless readers must be easily installed within the width of a door frame or mullion. They must also project and confirm an uncompromised commitment to quality and style.

To meet this emerging demand for innovative technology and contemporary design, Storm has created an integrated keypad and contactless reader, uniquely exploiting the use of light and form.

When installed, the new S60 keypad/reader projects an atmospheric halo of light onto surrounding surfaces, producing an exciting signature effect for landmark buildings. Intersec represents the first public showing of the new Storm-AXS S60 keypad.

Peter Jarvis, senior executive vice-president of the business, said: “Dubai is a location that features many of the world’s contemporary landmark buildings. Intersec 2016 provides a unique opportunity to establish and develop relationships with architects and building management companies. For a small British company promoting innovation in technology and quality by design, the UAE represents a market sector that values and demands premium quality solutions.”

www.storm-interface.com

Texecom Ltd: Stand S1-G34 (UK Pavilion)

Also exhibiting at Intersec is Texecom, one of Europe’s largest independent security alarm specialists.

Texecom will be showcasing its Premier Elite Series which provides a single, comprehensive system architecture and peripheral range that scales from the simplest and smallest of security applications through to the largest and most complex.

Featuring a common programming platform, interoperable wired and wireless peripheral devices, design flexibility and integration capabilities, the Premier Elite Series provides a high performance security solution for applications around the world.

Any Premier Elite control panel can connect wirelessly to a home network. The new Premier Elite Com WiFi module integrates with any Premier Elite control panel for simple, secure network connectivity.

WiFi connectivity provides a host of benefits to Premier Elite systems, including compatibility with Texecom’s suite of Premier Elite Mobile Apps, diagnostics and control with upload/download via Wintex software as well as alarm signalling to an Alarm Receiving Centre.

Premier Elite wireless systems also contain Ricochet mesh technology, a revolutionary wireless system that automatically adapts to any environment. Ricochet mesh technology brings commercial grade wireless security to residential applications and, when combined with Texecom’s latest offerings, delivers a comprehensive suite of security solutions for connected homes.

Clym Brown, marketing director at Texecom, outlined: “Texecom is obsessive about providing world-class protection for people and property everywhere. As an independent, UK-based designer and manufacturer of professional grade electronic security and emergency signalling systems, Texecom’s portfolio protects a wide range of applications. Exhibiting at Intersec showcases our solutions to the Middle East market and beyond.”

As a UKTI Approved Trade Organisation (ATO), the BSIA is responsible for facilitating the UK Pavilion at Intersec 2016 which brings together a number of UK companies to promote the ‘Great Britain’ brand. The UK Pavilion will form a focal point for overseas buyers who want to buy the quality, innovative security products for which the UK is renowned.

The BSIA will be based on Stand S1-E46 throughout Intersec 2016
