Driving security: iLegal 2011

September 2011 News

The Latin phrase ‘Quis custodiet ipsos custodies’ can be translated as ‘Who will guard the guards themselves’, or more commonly, ‘Who watchers the watchers’. This is a question the security industry has to face on a daily basis.

Presenting at this year’s iLegal conference on 25th October 2011 at the Southern Sun OR Tambo, Leo Nardi will extract pearls of wisdom from his years in the industry and discuss what contribution the disabled can make to a CCTV surveillance operation. Based on his own experience, he will discuss the operational, practical and legal issues involved in a successful surveillance operation.

A South African and Italian, Nardi did his post-matric studies in Italy while working for an electronics R&D company. He did his Italian national service with the Folgore Parachute Brigade, part of Italian Special Forces. On his return to South Africa, he continued to work for an electronics design and manufacturing company that was heavily involved in law enforcement electronics for both local and foreign markets. He also joined up as a SAPS Reservist (and is still active) where he was involved in technical projects.

He joined Justicia in 2000 as an electronics manager/investigator and in 2005 was contracted by Justicia to Toyota SA in Durban as an investigator/technical support specialist. Towards the end of 2006, the title of CCTV surveillance manager was added to his portfolio.

He is currently responsible for staffing and managing the Toyota control room as well as consulting on the technical upgrade of the security systems.
