Securex Asia 2010 – Singapore

AHM Security attended the SECUREX-ASIA 2010 conference at Singapore on 4th to 5th March 2010

SECUREX-ASIA 2010,  held on 4 & 5 March 2010 at the Holiday Inn Singapore Orchard City Centre, sets the stage to be the regional security and investigations conference for private security and investigations industry in Asia.

Themed the Evolution of Security Practices: Emerging Trends & Opportunities, SECUREX-ASIA 2010 has a distinguished panel of speakers that will be chaired by Professor Kris Pillay from the School of Criminal Justice, University of South Africa.

Among the topics discussed will be on terrorism (Professor Kumar Ramakrishnan, Centre of Excellence for National Security Studies at Nanyang Technological University, and Dr Eduardo Fulgencio from the Philippines), paradigm shift in mindset on security issues (Mr DC Nath from International Institute of Security and Safety Management), emotive profiling (Dr Terry Sheridan from Australia), corporate social responsibility (Mr Thomas Thomas, Singapore Compact) and legal implications with our new casino industry (Mr Glenn Knight, Nettowon LLC).

SECUREX-ASIA 2010 is being hosted by the Security Association Singapore.  The importance of Singapore’s private security industry as part of Total National Defence is recognised by our Singapore government, and hence Mr Ng Sze Meng, Assistant Director, Security Industry Regulatory Department of the Singapore Police Force will provide the Keynote Address on The Engagement of the Private and Public Sector – Evolution of Private Security Practices in Singapore.

In conjunction with SECUREX-ASIA 2010, the Security Association Singapore will also use this as a platform to present the long service awards for employees who have worked with security agencies over 10 years and above.  Despite the evolution of security practices where technology is expected to play a big part, the human factor remains the core asset for any security function. Crimes are committed by people, and the human intelligence and judgement can prevent crime and not just deter it.

The importance of SECUREX-ASIA 2010 in our Asia-Pacific region is recognised by industry associations that support this event. These include International Institute of Security and Safety Management (India), Council of International Investigators (USA), Association of Certified Security Agencies (Singapore), Singapore Compact and the Philippines Society for Industry Security.  Other associations from Philippines such as PADPAO, AHSOP, FISOP, BSMA will also be represented during the conference.

SECUREX-ASIA 2010 serves as a meeting point for security practitioners, security professionals and private investigators in Asia to interact and network for business development, share expertise and knowledge on the latest practices to improve organisational security for business continuity.  In today’s volatile climate where we face the threat of terrorism, high-tech crimes with the advent of technology, SECUREX-ASIA 2010 is a must attend event for both public and private sector security industry players in Asia if they take security seriously, according to organizers.

Apartment & Condo Security Tips

Most people that rent apartments or own condos feel good about apartment security because there are multiple locks to gain entry and/or someone monitoring the front door 24/7. Thieves like apartment houses and condominiums because neighbors are less likely to know each other and it’s more difficult to determine who lives there and who doesn’t.

Plus, the constant coming and going of renters and their guests at all hours make it easier for thieves to breach apartment security and make off with your possessions in plain sight. Few of us think twice about two guys coming down the hall with a television in their hands if they look and act like they belong there.

Here are some easy things that you can do to enhance apartment security for you and the other people in your building and decrease your chances of becoming another crime statistic.

Get Organized

Talk to your apartment or condo building manager about organizing monthly apartment security meetings to discuss problems and concerns. It will give you an opportunity to meet more of your neighbors and may invoke a feeling of community.

Change your Locks and Install a Deadbolt

It’s a standard apartment security measure to change locks when you move in and
this is generally done by the management at no cost to you. Also ask permission
to have a deadbolt lock installed with at least a 1-inch throw.

Never Buzz Someone into the Building that You Don’t Know

One of the more effective tricks employed by thieves to defeat apartment security is to hit all of the buttons on the outdoor panel in the hope that someone will buzz them in without checking to see who they are. This happens more often that not and once inside, they can cruise the halls looking for unlocked doors.

Make Sure that Building Management Maintains Lighting, Doors, and Locks

Part of the rental or condo agreement will state that management is responsible for maintaining apartment security via proper maintenance of lights, doors and locks. If light bulbs or locks need to be replaced anywhere on the premises, let management know by stopping by the office or slipping a note under the door after hours.

Use Redundant Apartment Security Measures on Sliding Glass Doors

Sliding glass doors are a favorite for thieves because, especially on the upper stories, tenants are lax about keeping them locked thinking that thieves will not be willing to climb that high. Balconies make it easy for thieves to gain access to upper-story apartments so be sure that you keep your balcony door locked and use
rigid bars designed to keep sliding glass doors from opening.

Always look Through the Peephole Before you Let Someone In

Even if you are expecting company, always look through the peephole before allowing someone to enter your apartment. If someone shows up unannounced to take a meter reading or an inspection of some sort, make some calls to determine the legitimacy of their reason before your let them in.

Never Let Someone that You Don’t Know Enter the Building with You

Thieves are opportunists. Exploiting any opportunity to bypass apartment security, they will act as friends of neighbors who are supposed to let them in but aren’t home, rely on our reluctance to create an uncomfortable social situation, or act as pizza delivery guys to get in. If someone attempts to come into the building with you that you dom’t know, act as if you’ve forgotten something in the car or firmly explain that they will have to use the intercom to get buzzed in.
