Congratulations to the winners of the 2019 New Zealand Security Awards
Sadly we were not successful in either category this year.
Outstanding Staff Retention/ Staff Development Program, &
Security Trainer or Workplace Assessor of the Year - Josh Cleary
This in no way detracts from the spectacular effort Josh makes every week working with our staff, helping them to achieve their qualification.
The number and quality of entries this year is a testament to the long overdue change in attitude towards safety and professionalism in the security industry.
We would also like to acknowledge all those who work tirelessly behind the scenes to promote and support the improvements in the industry, especially the Skills Organisation and the New Zealand Security Association.
We look forward to 2020 awards in Christchurch where we will have more opportunities to demonstrate what a small family owned business can do.
In the meantime, have a look at what we mean when we say “we train our staff”.
Professional Security Officers
Aware staff - The true value
California police say a hotel worker may have prevented a mass shooting after the worker reported that a disgruntled colleague had threatened to shoot staff and guests.
Employees - Threat and Asset to security
Corporations and organizations often face their biggest threat from inside.
Insiders have access and knowledge to corporate systems and information, and nobody will question their presence at a facility or involvement with privileged information.
She’ll Be Right
The biggest threat to security is the general lack of belief that any significant threat exists.
With the city of San Francisco recently banning authorities’ use of facial recognition surveillance, privacy and accuracy concerns are starting to catch up with developments in the technology, writes chief editor Nicholas Dynon.
