On 6th December, Securitas UK marks the season of goodwill with the release of ‘Ascending - Song for the Homeless’, a charity single song performed by talented members of the company’s staff. The COVID-19 pandemic has made life harder for everyone and in particular, for those in key worker roles, including those in on-site security roles. So, in the summer of 2021, Securitas UK decided to generate some fun and entertainment, by running an in-house ‘Securitas Has Got Talent’ competition. ‘Securitas Has Got Talent’ competition “We were amazed by the response, there were so many wonderful entries,” said Shaun Kennedy, the Country President at Securitas UK. Having seen and heard the musicians and vocalists in the competition, Shaun Kennedy then had the idea of harnessing their talent for a good cause. The Kokni Muslim Association Birmingham (KMAB) is one of several local charities we work with" He said, “Homelessness and hunger affects people from all walks of life and at Christmas, the impact is even more acute. The Kokni Muslim Association Birmingham (KMAB) is one of several local charities we work with and members of our finance team spend many hours volunteering with the charity, to help provide hot meals to those in need. Shaun Kennedy adds, “We thought a charity single that brought attention to hunger and homelessness, and helped raise funds to alleviate these problems, would be very worthwhile.” Ascending - the Securitas song for the homeless Securitas commissioned a songwriter to write an inspirational and uplifting track, and work with the 10-strong Securitas amateur ensemble, to produce a professional result. The talented group, which included a pianist, two drummers, two rappers and several vocalists, spent many hours over several weeks rehearsing, in preparation for the studio recording session. The result is the song titled, Ascending (also known as the Securitas Song for the Homeless). Raising funds to help the homeless “I hope you enjoy listening to Ascending, as much as our colleagues enjoyed creating it,” said Shaun Kennedy. He adds, “I also hope that the song’s powerful message will encourage people to donate to our JustGiving page, through which we’re aiming to raise £ 12,000, to continue to help provide food and shelter to individuals and families, who need this support now more than ever, during the festive season. Thank you for any contribution you’re able to make.”

Johnson Controls, the global pioneer in smart, healthy, and sustainable buildings, has introduced the PLAI Adapter for the Tyco Software House C•CURE 9000 security and event management system, which connects to the PLAI Agent for physical access control system compatibility. This open standards approach enables enterprises to easily manage personnel identity and physical access across disparate physical access control platforms and other identity-based systems, reducing complexity and cost in system administration and improving the employee and user experience. Physical-Logical Access Interoperability specification The Physical-Logical Access Interoperability (PLAI) specification provides an open standard method of sharing and managing personnel, credential, card format, and biometric details across an enterprise. This enables customers to use their current badge technology and biometrics without the need for duplicate enrollments in different systems and the need to issue multiple credentials. Created by the Physical Security Interoperability Alliance, the PLAI specification employs an open standard approach to integrating these different platforms as opposed to relying on individual platform drivers, simplifying the integration process. PII across multiple systems with the C•CURE 9000 PLAI adapter can ease compliance with data privacy regulations Centralised management The ability for centralised management of Personal Identifiable Information (PII) across multiple systems with the C•CURE 9000 PLAI adapter can ease compliance with data privacy regulations, such as GDPR, and reduce the risk of unauthorised access caused by identity conflicts in the operation of the access control system. This helps to reduce the total cost of ownership by easing the administrative burdens of making changes to users, credentials, locations, and roles. Standardised access control platform Open standards can also extend the life of current systems and allow organisations to defer the cost of standardising on one physical access control platform. By supporting interoperability with other PLAI conformant access control technologies and biometrics, systems can be extended to include security events and door control as well as visitor management functions. PLAI Adapter for Tyco Software House C•CURE 9000 is part of the Johnson Controls OpenBlue suite of connected solutions that support healthy people, healthy places, and a healthy planet.

On November 29th, Fordham University hosted a conference entitled, “Ethical Vision Artificial Intelligence: Creating an Effective AI Compliance Framework” in New York. The conference was hosted by Professor Shlomit Yanisky-Ravid, a visiting professor at Fordham Law School and a Fellow Professor at Yale Law School. Ethical-legal AI guidelines “This is our first step toward the establishment of a forum that will discuss, propose and advance ethical-legal AI guidelines for future regulations,” said Professor Yanisky-Ravid. “In light of the rapid and constant growth in uses of AI and lack of regulations, we are holding this international conference that addresses the challenges and solutions.” “A recent report unveils that sensitive facial recognition technology is being adopted by law enforcement across the globe, including U.S. law enforcement agencies that are increasingly using body-worn cameras, which may challenge and potentially violate human and civil rights of citizens when paired with facial recognition abilities.” Transparency and accuracy of AI systems Establishing ethical-legal principles should be based upon fairness, equality, privacy, responsibility, accountability" Prof. Yanisky-Ravid noted, “Our goal is to fill the existing gap resulting from the lack of U.S. laws and regulations relating to AI systems. It also aims to cultivate dialogue that is currently lacking between policymakers and private industry by building bridges of trust between these entities to foster a better understanding of various perspectives.” “We share the same goals in establishing ethical-legal principles, guidelines, and norms. These principles should be based upon fairness, equality, privacy, responsibility, accountability, transparency, and accuracy of AI systems.” Addressing the ethical and legal questions “This international conference is our first step toward the establishment of an ‘incubator’ for exchanging ideas, conducting research, and promoting discourse and publications,” stated Prof. Yanisky-Ravid. “We envision a forum that will discuss, propose and advance ethical-legal AI guidelines and principles for future regulations using academic tools, including research, roundtables, presentations, discussions, and publications. This forum is critical to tackling the ethical and legal questions stemming from the ever-changing AI ecosystem which currently lacks proper regulation.” AI compliance framework Ideas for companies to regulate their use of AI with active government oversight of biometrics, and facial recognition Prof. Carole Basri, Chief Advisor of the Association of Corporate In-House Counsel Program, discussed the challenge of creating an ethical and effective AI compliance framework. Prof. Basri proposed several ideas for companies to better regulate their use of AI with active government oversight of machine vision, biometrics, and facial recognition technology. Prof. Basri said, “There is a deep and common concern in modern society that AI technology will become uncontrollable. There is, therefore, a call for social, legal, and ethical tools for regulating AI’s functions and outcomes. An effective compliance framework can help organisations address concerns about the technology.” AI-based face and object recognition technologies Dean Nicolls, Oosto’s Chief Marketing Officer, represented the Visual AI and facial recognition industry in the discussion. Oosto is a pioneering visual AI platform enabling enterprises to protect customers, guests, and employees by identifying security and safety threats in real-time by exploiting the power of AI-based face and object recognition technologies. Facial recognition sensitivity Mr. Nicolls presented a scale of sensitivity of facial recognition use cases ranging from unlocking users’ mobile phones for authentication to mass public surveillance of citizens by government agencies. “The media’s focus on law enforcement’s use of facial recognition and the wrongful arrests resulting from its application has cast a negative perception of facial recognition technology -- even though these examples represent a small fraction of the total use cases in production.”

AlertMedia, the globally renowned emergency communication solutions provider, has announced its new Global Threat Intelligence Division, with faster, broader, and more relevant coverage, about a wide range of global and local incidents. Staffed by a dedicated team of intelligence analysts, who provide human-verified alerts 24/7, the division has more than doubled the volume of actionable intelligence available to AlertMedia customers concerning threats that directly affect employees and business operations. Global Threat Intelligence Available immediately to customers worldwide, AlertMedia’s Global Threat Intelligence solution provides independently verified, around-the-clock, curated threat warnings for critical events, across the globe, from severe weather and natural disasters to public demonstrations and public health crises, to help organisations more easily identify, monitor, and assess risks to their people and business. Organisations face an increasing number of daily threats to employee safety, business continuity Organisations face an increasing number of daily threats to employee safety, business continuity, and their ability to provide products and services to customers without disruption. To identify potential risks, operational security, loss prevention, and safety teams are often forced to sift through disparate sources of unstructured data, requiring significant labor and infrastructure to manually assess the impact to their organisation. Delivering analyst-vetted intelligence AlertMedia’s Global Threat Intelligence transforms today’s staggering threat monitoring environment, by monitoring, identifying, and rapidly delivering analyst-vetted intelligence from trained experts, to help organisations drastically reduce their response times to an incident that presents a safety or operational risk. Now, instead of spending the majority of their time manually evaluating and distributing information, they can instead focus on solving more strategic problems. “Many of the safety and security teams we speak to today suffer from an overwhelming amount of information and an inability to quickly filter noise, to find what matters,” said Sara Pratley, the Vice President (VP) of Global Intelligence at AlertMedia. Sarah Pratley adds, “Our focus is on delivering solutions that provide customers with actionable, vetted intelligence that accelerates decision making and provides clarity, concerning the impact to their organisation. The combination of relevant insights, alongside our suite of emergency communication tools, enables any company to more quickly disseminate information, and protect their business.” Seamless integration with emergency communication solution AlertMedia’s Global Threat Intelligence seamlessly integrates with its emergency communication solution AlertMedia’s Global Threat Intelligence seamlessly integrates with its emergency communication solution, enabling organisations to communicate information about critical events to employees, leadership, and other stakeholders through multiple channels. For example, Coca-Cola Bottling United’s people team is responsible for knowing of any and all threats that could impact the company or safety of its employees. “Severe weather, including hurricanes, tornadoes, and winter storms, threatens our business every year, but our ability to keep track of these events and inform employees at a moment’s notice became increasingly challenging,” said Gianetta Jones, the Vice President (VP) and Chief People Officer of Coca-Cola Bottling United. Responding to disruptive events in real time Gianetta Jones adds, “AlertMedia helps us identify and respond to disruptive events in real-time, and we’re now better able to take proactive measures to ensure our employees stay safe and out of harm’s way no matter the emergency.” By combining AlertMedia’s emergency communication and threat intelligence solutions, organisations can benefit from the following: Faster, analyst-vetted intelligence: Every threat delivered by AlertMedia is independently verified, by highly-trained experts and categorised by type, severity, and location, giving people the ability to easily filter and set specific alert preferences, for each event type. Expert analysis from trusted sources: Receive vetted alerts, by highly trained analysts with decades of combined experience in monitoring and delivering threat intelligence for the CIA, FBI, US Army, and many of the world’s largest corporations. Real-time coverage of a wide variety of events: Improve situational awareness with faster detection of critical events, transportation disruptions, security incidents, public demonstrations, environmental hazards, public health emergencies, and more. Streamlined response workflows: Navigate the entire lifecycle of a threat, from detection to resolution from a single, intuitive platform. Accelerate communication tasks with a fully integrated emergency communication solution. Impact assessment: Understand the organisation’s exposure, with a clear picture of exactly who and what is impacted, based on the locations of the people or assets. Automatic alerts to targeted groups: Create automatic, triggered actions that send real-time threat warnings to admins or directly to employees, who are in close proximity to a nearby threat.
AlertMedia, the globally renowned emergency communication solutions provider, has announced the launch of several new mobile app features, which are designed to keep the current hybrid workforce and anywhere workers safe and connected to their organisation, while travelling, working remotely, or on the go. AlertMedia mobile app Employees of organisations with an AlertMedia account can now access real-time information about emerging threats happening anywhere in the world, through the AlertMedia mobile app, with the option also to leverage dynamic location tracking, in order to receive instantaneous threat intelligence alerts about environmental hazards, crime, and other potentially dangerous incidents happening nearby. Through a new partnership with GeoSure, employees can access detailed neighbourhood and city-level safety scores Additionally, through a new partnership with GeoSure, employees can access detailed neighbourhood and city-level safety scores for any work or travel destination, so as to help them quickly and accurately understand their surroundings, when in unfamiliar places. Keeping employees safe and connected “With employees working from locations all over the world, often away from a traditional office, it’s much harder to identify unpredictable events that threaten their safety and productivity. The new normal demands that organisations adapt and keep their employees safe and connected, wherever they are,” said Brian Cruver, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Founder at AlertMedia. Brian Cruver adds, “Our mobile app technology provides a powerful way for employers to ensure their people know what threats exist nearby, while also providing the employees with simple and intuitive ways to signal for help, during an emergency.” Hybrid working environment As offices begin to reopen amid the vaccine rollout, many companies are exploring more flexible work options. In a global survey from Accenture, three-quarters of workers said they want a mix of office and remote working to become the new norm, creating greater complexity for employers needing to locate and communicate with impacted employees, during emergencies. Additionally, with business travel rapidly returning to pre-pandemic levels, employers are faced with how to efficiently and effectively monitor and communicate with an increasingly mobile and distributed workforce. AlertMedia’s new mobile features create a more direct connection between employers and workers, while enabling employees to play an active role, in making informed decisions that impact their well-being. Access to 24/7, location-aware intelligence Even though more people are returning to the office, finding ways to communicate effectively continues to be a challenge" With access to 24/7, location-aware intelligence, alongside hyper-local safety scores from GeoSure, employees can more easily assess, evaluate, and navigate evolving incidents, and unfamiliar travel locations, in order to avoid potential threats that present safety risks. “Even though more people are returning to the office, finding ways to communicate effectively continues to be a challenge,” said Donna Kelly, the Head of Facilities at Rakuten. Enabling employees to manage personal safety Donna Kelly adds, “Rather than send an email to employees, hoping they will read it, AlertMedia enables our employees to manage their own safety, at their own site. Our employees are our most valuable asset. By providing them access to the AlertMedia mobile app, we are demonstrating our vested interest in their well-being.” AlertMedia’s new mobile features include: Global Threat Intelligence: Empower employees with real-time threat intelligence and warnings concerning incidents, happening near their office, homes, or mobile location, to improve situational awareness and avoid potentially dangerous situations. Employee Safety Monitoring: Give employees an instant, reliable connection, to call for help from their organisation or law enforcement, with distress signal capabilities, including a one-touch panic button and timed monitoring session, both supported by a 24/7 dedicated monitoring team that provides live support, while response teams and law enforcement are alerted. GeoSure GeoSafeScores: Deliver at-a-glance safety data for more than 65,000 cities, towns, and neighbourhoods worldwide, in order to provide employees an overall safety rating and contextual information for any location, spanning eight risk categories - Women’s Safety, LGBTQ+ Safety, Physical Harm, Theft, Health & Medical, Basic Freedoms, Nighttime, and Overall Safety. Travel safety for employees in unfamiliar locations “Our mission is to help anyone, whether for business or pleasure, travel more confidently and safely,” said Michael Becker, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at GeoSure. Michael Becker adds, “We’re thrilled to partner with AlertMedia, to extend the reach of our data and help employees take extra precautions, and steer clear of potential threats, when traveling to less familiar environments.”

Founded in 2000, Impinj, Inc. has announced the shipment of its first 25 billion endpoint ICs in 2018. Since then, the company has focused on expanding its product line and partner base, reaching the 50 billion milestone, in just over 2 years, highlighting the opportunity available for RAIN RFID and IoT expansion. RAIN RFID and IoT expansion “We believe the opportunity for RAIN RFID is vast and largely untapped,” said David Krebs, the Executive Vice President for Enterprise Mobility and the Connected Worker at VDC Research. David Krebs adds, “We expect volumes to increase significantly for the next few years, with increasing demand in retail hard goods, in logistics for cross-docking workflows and dock-door visibility, in food traceability and automation, and in the postal/courier sector, to support parcel logistics applications.” Total inventory accuracy By enabling total inventory accuracy, RAIN RFID unlocks a host of benefits, including labour efficiency" “By enabling total inventory accuracy, RAIN RFID unlocks a host of benefits, including labour efficiency, inventory maximisation, transportation cost reductions, and improved omni-channel functionality,” said Marshall Kay, the Founder of the prominent consultancy, RFID Sherpas. Marhsall Kay adds, “Retailers who made early investments in RAIN RFID are more agile than their peers. Having benefited greatly from that agility during the COVID-19 pandemic, I fully expect they will now extend the value of RAIN RFID to self-checkout, loss analytics, and simplified returns processing.” Reaping the benefits of digital transformation “Together with our partners, we’re building a boundless Internet of Things (IoT), helping businesses reap the benefits of digital transformation,” said Chris Diorio, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Impinj, Inc. Chris Diorio adds, “We envision a future, where people engage a connected thing from its point of manufacture, across the supply chain, and ultimately to your home. We will continue to make RAIN RFID easier to access and use, as we enable connectivity for trillions of everyday things, ultimately improving people’s lives.” Impinj’s endpoint ICs Impinj’s endpoint ICs provide item identifiers, require no batteries, and enable smart, wirelessly connected things. Impinj connectivity devices include reader chips, readers, and gateways that identify and locate connected things, providing real-time data about tagged items that inform business decisions. Together, as part of the Impinj platform, they enable the company’s global partner ecosystem to develop a broad set of RAIN RFID products, including tags, readers, printers and IoT solutions, such as inventory management, asset management, and shipment verification. These solutions allow touch-free automation, real-time visibility, and virtualising systems, or workflows. Meeting high demand for item connectivity The new endpoint ICs leverage Moore’s Law to improve performance and increase functionality In 2019, Impinj, Inc. had announced two new endpoint ICs, to meet the increasing demand for item connectivity, in the retail, grocery, consumer packaged goods, and logistics markets. The new endpoint ICs leverage Moore’s Law to improve performance and increase functionality, while simultaneously reducing the overall size of the ICs. New enterprise-grade reader These new ICs are so small that roughly 30 million of them will fit in a single coffee cup. In 2020, Impinj introduced a new enterprise-grade reader, which is specifically designed to simplify global RAIN deployments. As an IoT edge device, this new reader provides industry-renowned performance, enterprise-grade reliability and security, and support for next-gen RAIN tags, in order to meet the demands of businesses that seek to connect everything to the IoT.
