The National Security Inspectorate (NSI) will host two expert sessions at The Security Event and the inaugural Professional Security Officer Live event, taking place 25-27 April at the NEC, Birmingham, UK.

On 26 April at 12:30 PM, in the Security In Practice Theatre, Matthew Holliday, Director of Approval Schemes, NSI will explore ‘How does cyber security affect security systems?’

During the discussion, Holliday will examine how cybersecurity is shaping the fire and security sector, how it might be implemented – at both an organisational level and installation level at customer sites – plus who should take responsibility for the different elements of cybersecurity and the risk to organisations if not defined.

On 27 April at 13:00 PM in the Professional Security Officer Live Theatre, Clare Rogers, Senior Operations Manager – Services, NSI will highlight ‘Why frontline staff and buyers are involved in the audit process – the value and outcomes’.

By shining a spotlight on why site visits with staff and buyers are important to the certification audit process, Rogers will discuss the challenges and explain how greater involvement can add value and improve outcomes.

This session will be of interest to frontline officers, senior management plus procurers of guarding services.

Richard Fogelman, CEO, NSI commented: “Having recently taken over at the helm of NSI, I am very much looking forward to attending these upcoming events to meet with representatives from approved companies, stakeholders and those interested in learning more about independent certification.

“Enabling more companies to benefit from best practice to improve efficiency and performance is central to raising standards within the security and guarding services sectors, particularly in today’s business environment and NSI is committed to helping organisations operate more effectively and mitigate risks.”
