Security issues are now top of the political, social, economic and business agenda. To help protect an organization’s people, information and assets The British Standards Institution (BSI) has published two new best practice standards for security professionals in all industry sectors and organizations of all sizes. Security-related standards support a practical approach that can help to minimize risks, avoid litigation, reduce insurance premiums and meet regulatory requirements.

Nanotechnology involves designing and producing nanomaterials by controlling their shape and size on the nanoscale. As an indication of the nanoscale's dimensions, a human hair is about 70,000 to 80,000 nanometers thick. Nanotechnology has already brought us improved suntan lotions, better tires and stain-resistant clothes. Soon "liquid armor" using a shear thickening fluid (STF), an application of nanotechnology, could be protecting police officers and soldiers.

False alarms are a serious problem: in 2004, more than 280,000 false alarms were generated by automatic fire detection systems, causing disruption, unnecessary cost and wasting the Fire and Rescue Service's time. System Sensor has addressed the problem, developing an innovative solution based on advanced technology: the new COPTIR is the first multi-criteria fire detector to integrate four independent sensors into a single point fire detector. Extensive testing confirms that this latest development provides a step change in detection technology; it is the first detector specifically optimised to address the false alarm issue whilst also offering a major improvement in response times.
