It’s finally official. The long awaited megadeal in the private security industry has been approved. On April 5, Allied Universal announced its acquisition of G4S.
At the end of 2020, Thinkcurity set out on a mission to discuss diversity within physical security, wanting to uncover all of the great, unique minds that make up the industry. Within this discussion, we are excited to highlight female physical security leaders who are making an impact within their organizations and our industry.
Diversity continues to be a growing topic of discussion as the business world finds the best ways to ensure innovative minds of all walks of life are represented. No differently than any other industry, the security community also continues to make efforts to create an inclusive environment that is helping us to innovate and grow.
On October 6-7, 2020, Thinkcurity presented the first-ever Virtual Physical Security Summit. Over 1200 physical security professionals signed up for the 2-day event to get actionable insights from thought leaders in every area of the physical security industry.
Thinkcurity was founded in August 2019 on a mission to revolutionize education and business development in the physical security industry through engaging content and thought leadership. That goal is being taken to the next level with the inaugural Virtual Physical Security Summit.
If 2020 has taught the world anything so far, it is to be better prepared for crisis. The good news is that some situations are starting to look up.
Things like pandemics with quarantines, terror attacks, and serious natural disasters happen unexpectedly and bring panic with them. A quick and effective response from critical industries (i.e. healthcare, transportation, law enforcement) will help people bounce back on their feet.
We kicked off our 2020 Thinkcurity webinars with David Chandler, the CALSAGA president. CALSAGA is California’s security association, advocating for the betterment of the security industry in the legislature and BSIS. David has been in the industry for more than a decade, establishing himself as an industry thought leader.
Robert H. Perry, founder and CEO of Robert H. Perry & Associates, Incorporated, is dedicated to making information about industry trends available so security organizations can make better decisions. His 2019 U.S. Contract Security Industry white paper is a great place to learn about current industry statistics. Today we will break down the important parts of the 11th edition of his white paper and what it means for you as a security professional.
