Insights from SMART Security Solutions

January 2024 Editor's Choice

Welcome to the first edition of SMART Security Solutions' Editor's Choice newsletter. We will send this newsletter every sixth Thursday, in addition to our regular SMART Security Solutions news briefs, which will continue to arrive in your inbox every Tuesday.

The Editor’s Choice news brief is different from the regular updates as it will include articles written by SMART Security Solutions or written for us. Prominent insights and thought leadership articles will form the basis of the information provided, while the regular articles readers are used to seeing – news, opinions and technology – will be included in the Tuesday news briefs and on www.securitysa.com.

SMART Security Solutions is not abandoning the print publishing market, and we will be publishing six handbooks this year, from the Access & Identity Handbook, which is at the printer as you read this, to the Fire & Safety Handbook at the end of the year. Naturally, all our editorials from the print issues will be online and in the various news briefs, as well as much more. The handbooks and conferences are all in the media kit, available here.

If you have any suggestions or ideas on what we should cover, please get in touch with andrew@technews.co.za. Our goal is to enhance the value of SMART Security Solutions and remain the premier source of security information in sub-Saharan Africa.
