The British Security Industry Association’s (BSIA) video surveillance section has launched an ethical and legal use guide for Automated Facial Recognition (AFR).
The Open Security & Safety Alliance (OSSA®), an industry body comprised of stakeholders from all facets of the security, safety and building automation space, today announced it has joined Euralarm, the association of European manufacturers, installers and service providers from the electronic fire safety and security industry. By joining the Security Section within Euralarm, OSSA will contribute valuable expertise in the domain of Internet of Things (IoT), while leveraging on Euralarm’s profound relationships in the European security and safety markets.
Following a decision of its Board, Euralarm has welcomed its newest member Verisure, the leading European provider of professionally monitored security systems. The company will join both the Security and Services Section of Euralarm.
For many years EN 50131-1 has been the basis for quality standards for security and hold-up systems and as new technologies and applications are brought to market the regulation needs to be updated to meet the new requirements. At this moment the EN 50131-1 is open for revision and Euralarm is working with its members and other stakeholders from the security industry to include these new technologies into the standard. It will ensure that going forwards the EN 50131-1 will stay relevant for end-users, alarm response and insurance companies and with that also for our industry.
"From cybersecurity to standardisation, this collaboration helps us advocate the right policy framework for the future."
"WAGNER decided to permanently engage in Euralarm’s activities with special respect to matters of fire safety, contributing to reduce trade barriers and to enhance competitiveness and harmonisation of the European market."
