The Security Institute partners with ITN Productions on ‘Creating A Security Culture’

by Brian Sims

In an exciting new partnership, The Security Institute and ITN Productions are producing a news and current affairs-style programme to be hosted by national newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky. Drawing upon ITN’s 60-year heritage and expertise in storytelling, ‘Creating A Security Culture’* is designed to “bring to life” this vital sector in a news-style programme that will combine a compelling mix of key interviews, reports and sponsored editorial profiles from leading organisations.

Security affects everyone on a daily basis and ‘Creating A Security Culture’ will take a closer look at what makes us feel safe online, in the workplace and during a day out and how security functions to ensure that safety.

ITN Productions will be looking at the importance of security professionals obtaining enhanced qualifications such that they’re better equipped to deal with the fast-moving challenges of security management and how the range of expertise is increasing. Other areas of focus include counter-terrorism, conflict management and business crime.

‘Creating A Security Culture’ will be launched at The Security Institute’s Annual Conference, which takes place on Tuesday 3 October at Armoury House in The City of London**. The programme will form part of a communications campaign featuring members of The Security Institute, professional partners and influential individuals within the Government as well as industry journalists, writers and bloggers.

By collaborating with ITN Productions, we’ll be able to tell the story about the work of security professionals and the advantages of membership of The Security Institute.”

We’re excited to embark on this project and engage with key organisations and people who are dedicated to shaping and improving the future of security, and also ensuring that the profession is appropriately recognised and respected.”
