Perpetuity Research has announced the launch of a new UK security sector survey today which addresses the relative pros and cons of procuring and managing security as a single service, as opposed to bundling it with other FM service provision. This is part of a major study to better understand the differences in approach.
They are inviting three groups from the security sector to take part in the on-line survey:
1. Facilities Managers, involved in the management of security services.
2. Security Managers and Procurement Specialists, involved in the purchase of security services.
3. Directors and Managers of companies supplying security services and goods.
The survey is anonymous and should take approximately 15 minutes to complete. The on-line survey can be accessed at:
The deadline for responses is the 1st March 2013.
This work is part of the Security Research Initiative, set up to evaluate topics of importance to the security world, and to promote good practice. The work is supported by the BSIA, The Security Institute and ASIS International (UK Chapter). The findings of the survey will be made available free of charge.
