Genetec and HID survey reveals higher education institutions willing to upgrade their access control systems

While access control is a fundamental element of security in higher education, many aging access control systems urgently need to be upgraded. This is according to a survey of 1,800 higher education security and IT professionals conducted by Genetec Inc., a technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, and HID Global, a worldwide provider of trusted identity solutions. While organisations are ready to embrace new technology, they are looking to go “beyond the door” and integrate with other security and operations systems.

CISS Ltd takes a lead playing it’s role in Nation Building.

Up-skilling and re-skilling youth of India is the uppermost task ahead of us. The twin issues of unemployment and non-availability of appropriately skilled human resource is haunting the nation. A joint initiative by SISPA, Raksha Shakti University , under aegis of Government of Gujarat and CISS Academy for Skill Human Development Pvt Ltd, a CISS Ltd group company, forging alliance to contribute its bit by empowering youth, to make them employable with requisite skills is indeed a laudable effort and a milestone in the history of Private Security Industry.


(To feel safe is everyone’s common concern)The purpose of our brain is to self-preserve by readapting. It scans our environment and no sooner we are exposed to any life threatening danger the default self-preserve mode (aka instincts) takes over eg. If a fire breaks out you will rush towards the exit or to the fire extinguisher immediately. This physiological response is termed as fight or flight.This amalgamation of responses to strenuous situations is known as the "fight-or-flight" reaction because it progressed as a survival mechanism, to react hurriedly to a grave life-consuming situation. On Neurosafety: When the brain detects a reward, it triggers an automated ENGAGE neural response that drives us towards that perceived reward and ultimately also enables us to function at our best (e.g. improved creativity, better judgment, enhanced memory, effective decision-making, better communication, etc.). *When our brain detects a THREAT the opposite happens as an automated DISENGAGE response is triggered. Our ability to solve problems, communicate, understand consequences, evaluate situations, control impulses, plan ahead, recall information and make decisions is severely impaired at a neurological level. *When in this 'fear-state', an individual’s ability to perform even simple routine actions – not to mention perform at their best when things go wrong – is disrupted as their brain tries to work its way through the perceived threat (inter-personal or environmental). This often causes them to behave in unsafe ways - taking shortcuts, hiding or lying about incidents, ignoring safety procedures and making unsafe decisions, especially when under pressure.​ *Since the past few months, we’ve been forced to see everyone we come in contact with as a possible source of infection. Our world took a 180 degree turn as we can’t go for a movie; go to the temple or malls as freely as before. We are living in a state of constant anxiety....


PRIVATE SECURITY INDUSTRY, INDIAThe Indian Private Security Industry operates with over ~21,500 PSARA licensed Agencies clocking Rs. ~1.14 Lakh-Crores as current market size and spread across 36 states and UTs, has a surprisingly miniscule representation in Brand recall by a handful of leading PSAs, dominated mostly by foreign MNCs. There is hardly any strong indigenous brand dominance in India except a few, although there is no match to the global brands. The Indian private security industry having evolved over almost 4 decade therefore has undoubtedly not been able to get their act together at all.This is a burning issue that the Industry needs to address on war footing to realize our stated national mission of creating a $5 Trillion Indian economy where the Service sector contributes a lion’s share with the Private Security Industry being second largest manpower employer. Paradoxically, the big brands are still able to command their terms and price in a market generally perceived to be extremely un-regulated, un-ethical, price cannibalistic and profit mongering. One may therefor derive that the real professional standard Private Security Service transactions are actually confined to probably the top 7-8 industry players who control ~8-10% market share. These companies are highly diversified in service and form and are much Tech savvy who lead more with their advanced lines of businesses than their high visibility manned guarding. It is starkly opposite for the rest of 90-92% of market players who depend on low margin low delight plain vanilla manned guarding as their main stay.The discerning client expects administration of its security, safety, social wellness and environment aspects to be managed through a single window format adhering to the highest levels of compliances and service delivery by their outsourced service provider. These physical activities are intertwined and overlay as a common service domain, which...
