Welcome to the final issue of Hi-Tech Security Solutions for 2022. Personally, I have absolutely no regrets seeing this year ride off into the sunset, or preferably be set on fire. However, it is the beginning of the start of something new for Hi-Tech Security Solutions as we will be doing a rebranding exercise over the first few months of 2023.
The first change readers will notice is that the Access & Identity Management Handbook 2023 has been rebranded as Smart Access & Identity 2023. Not an earth-shaking change, but it’s a start and we will see the changes coming through in the contents in the new year. Our other handbooks will also be rebranded in a similar fashion, with the new-look Hi-Tech Security Solutions being launched during Securex 2023.
Something brand new is a new handbook, Smart Mining Security Solutions, which will be launched as the also new Smart Mining Security Conference in the first half of the year. The handbook and conference will focus on security and risk management, protecting people and assets on mines, as digital transformation changes the way mines operate. But more on that in the new year.
We have already set the date for our Estate Security Conference in KZN for 23 February 2023 and more information will be forthcoming soon. Once again, the Estate Security Conference will also take place in Johannesburg in October next year.
Women in Security
An exciting addition to our line-up is plans to launch the Women in Security Awards in 2023, where we highlight some of the women in our industry who have succeeded and set the pace. These awards will not only recognise some of the women in leadership roles, but we hope it will also serve as a motivator for young women to make their mark in the security industry going forward.
We will start the process early in the new year to ensure there is time for people to nominate women who have made their mark in the industry (or the ladies can nominate themselves if others don’t step up), so look out for the announcements. We’re hoping the industry will throw its weight behind the initiative and that the awards will become an annual event.
Since this is the first time we will be holding this event (these awards normally focus on the ‘cooler’ industries), we are open to ideas from readers and the industry on how to make this a memorable and meaningful award. Feel free to email me on [email protected] with any advice or ideas.
The Hi-Tech Security Solutions’ team wishes all our readers and advertisers a relaxing and peaceful festive season while we keep those who are not getting time off their security jobs in our prayers.
