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.’

Max Planck researchers revel the nano-structure of molecular trains and the reason for smooth transport in cellular antennas.
Moving around, sensing the extracellular environment, and signaling to other cells are important for a cell to function properly. Responsible for those tasks...
Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
