14th July 2015

An article by PSI Magazine  looked at the data from Vanderbilt's 2015 European Security Barometer, giving an insight into security installations across Brittan. 

For me some of the key points from the study are:

  • More than 1 in 4 (28%) of small and medium sized business have suffered loss, disruption or inconvenience as a direct result of physical or cyber security breaches
  • British business have reported 3x as my physical breaches as virtual and cyber attacks
  • Many British businesses surveyed do not have electrical security products
  • Duty of care, regulatory compliance, lowing of insurance and maintaining business continuity did not seem to be a factor for those who did have a system installed
  • Quality and price were key considerations not service, integration or brand
  • Nearly 9 out of 10 (89%) British adults support CCTV in combating crime
  • 68% of British adults do not believe CCTV infringe civil liberties
  • Only a minority of British households have an intruder or burglar alarm (28%), access control system (5%) or CCTV (7%)
  • 33% were interested in an integrated security  solution
  • 35% were interested in a security solution that would work alongside other appliances in a “connected home”
  • 36% of those that rented were interested in an intergraded security system compared to the 28% of those who owned their own home
