Our approach

Our aim is to promote best security practice and to keep businesses informed on a variety of security-related issues with articles written by well-respected leaders in the security industry.

Each quarterly issue of City Security magazine has an average of 36 to 40 pages of high quality, well-designed, magazine styled editorial.

We work in close partnership with the City of London Crime Prevention Association and all articles published are vetted by them.

We are different

There are many security publications on the market but none quite like City Security magazine.

We only cover the security issues that matter in an editorial style that does not promote a company or its services. This means product launches, people moving jobs and new business awards do not feature in our publication.
