Darren Read, MD, Amulet Security on security in 2022
We asked Darren Read, MD Amulet Security on his security priorities for 2022 and beyond.
One of our key priorities is enhancing real-time situational awareness for our security officers and customers. A lot of planning goes into building a security solution, but in order to react to challenges as safely and efficiently as possible, real-time insight is imperative for both day-to-day operations and during major incidents.
This is why we’ve launched an initiative powered by a tablet-based situational awareness application. The same tool is utilised by public sector emergency and security agencies, so we know the positive impact they have.
There are numerous benefits to improved real-time awareness, including creating better lines of communication between situational command and management teams, enabling companies to make informed decisions, and creating a culture of preparedness.
With the Protect Duty legislation on the horizon, businesses will be required to maintain standards that many have not reached previously, and they will be held to account if they don’t meet these standards. I believe situational awareness technology is the fundamental aspect in knitting together the various elements of a security solution and will be a key priority for organisations throughout the next decade and beyond. Ultimately, improved real-time awareness will ensure people are and feel safe. This is our primary reason for existence – security enables everyday life.
