New Issue of SSAIB News Launched Just in Time for IFSEC 2017

New Issue of SSAIB News Launched Just in Time for IFSEC 2017

The latest edition of the SSAIB News magazine is now available and will be on display for the first time at this year’s IFSEC International at the ExCel in London.

The 2017 version of our annual newsletter has been put together by Ian Drury of Live Wire Media and features a wealth of articles dedicated to the security and fire industries. Copies of the magazine will be available to pick up at stand G450 at IFSEC International between June 20-22.

Those that can’t make the trip to London needn’t worry though – as the SSAIB will be handing out issues at every one of our regional meetings and exhibitions during the second half of the year, with SSAIB-registered firms also receiving a copy through the post in the next week or so as well.

The magazine’s cover story focuses on the SSAIB’s leading role in the pioneering use of drones being used by two Police forces and their ground-breaking certification to the Surveillance Camera Code of Practice. The revolutionary use of body-worn video by the Metropolitan and Greater Manchester Police forces to the same code of practice is also featured.

Chief executive Alex Carmichael looks back at his second year in the role, as well as giving an update of SSAIB’s progress and the latest developments within the company. In addition to Alex touching on it in his piece, training manager Trevor Jenks discusses the new Trailblazer scheme and what it means for firms looking for/employing apprentices in this industry.

Digital marketing specialist Alistair Gleave explains why social media channels are becoming increasingly more important for businesses to get ahead. Meanwhile, marketing team member and social media coordinator Glen Maxwell explains what the SSAIB is doing to increase its own digital marketing and how it can benefit our registered firms.

The latest SSAIB news is complimented by a look back at the company’s schedule of regional meetings and exhibitions for the first half of 2017 – as we travelled the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland to meet with our registered firms and give them the chance to talk to us and give us feedback on a number of aspects of SSAIB certification.

Auditor Richard Deacon discusses his role within the company - and also gives his views on how the serious issue of false alarm calls has been successfully tackled – before Security Systems and Monitoring scheme manager David Roscoe brings the magazine to a close with a technical update of BS EN 50518.
