The industry-wide research initiative aims to develop best practice in managing security. It was launched today (Friday 30 May) and will provide a security blueprint for industry.
The Security Research Initiative is being managed by Professor Martin Gill of Perpetuity, a spin-out company from the University of Leicester. The first year (of three) will focus on the development of a security strategy, identifying good practices and will result in the production of a model document.
Professor Martin Gill commented: ‘From previous work we have conducted we know that all too often security is not guided by a strategy and this is one reason why some security professionals felt it had failed to achieve proper recognition within organisations, indeed some felt it was a marginalised function. By conducting studies and generating new insights we aim to help fill a major knowledge gap that will help improve understanding and perceptions of security.’
The SRI has come together with the support of the ASIS International, British Security Industry Association and The Security Institute. David Dickinson Chief Executive of the BSIA has noted: ‘This is a very important initiative that aims to add new insights and it has the support of some leading companies. The results have the potential to be very influential in guiding good practice.’

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.
How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...
