Perpetuity Research undertakes survey on use of advanced technology in physical security measures

by Brian Sims

Advances in technology and the Internet of Things have changed the way in which we all live and work. They’re also altering the manner in which security operates. ‘Traditional’ security measures are evolving and becoming more advanced and, in some cases, interconnected, but what’s the impact of all this on offenders? To find out, Perpetuity Research is undertaking a study on the matter, interviewing offenders to understand how they react to this ‘new’ security.

In addition, Perpetuity Research is conducting a survey of practising security professionals to ascertain their views on the types of changes taking place, whether they feel these changes are likely to impact offenders and to ascertain their outlook on the broader challenges to security that advances in technology present.

This survey is anonymous and takes approximately ten-to-15 minutes to complete. It’s best suited to those involved in physical security such as security managers (including intermediaries) who purchase security solutions, security suppliers and other security experts. All participants are given the opportunity to automatically receive a free copy of the findings once the report is published (towards the end of 2019).

*The deadline for responses is Friday 15 March. To take part in the survey access this link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SRI-Evolution

**The research is being undertaken under the umbrella of the Security Research Initiative. Learn more here: https://perpetuityresearch.com/security-research-initiative/
