Physical Security & Resilience

Special interest group

WHAT IS physical security & resilience?

Physical Security & Resilience is a Special Interest Group for ADS members who are engaged in or have an interest in all aspects of physical security, ranging from access control, perimeter security, blast protection solutions, hostile vehicle mitigation, all the way through to training and risk advisory services.  With the security and resilience market growing globally, and the UK Government poised to regulate in the sector with a new ‘PROTECT Duty’, the group has been formed to provide a docking point for members to collaborate and engage with relevant stakeholders and to take advantage of the opportunities offered by this diverse market.

WHAT IS THE PURpose of physical security & resilience?

This Special Interest Group acts as a forum for members to:

  • Engage in business to business and pre-procurement networking
  • Act as an industry reference group for the physical security systems supply chain
  • Identify and cooperate on business opportunities to the public and private sectors
  • Act as focal point for engagement with Government regulators
  • Shape national and international policy, legislation and standards

A core function of the group will be to work with stakeholders in Government and partners across industry to ensure that world-leading UK security solutions in this space continue to meet the highest standards internationally. The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) has confirmed that it is supportive of the plans and will be engaging with the group. Physical Security & Resilience will also maximise business development opportunities, in both public and private sector markets, including crowded places, critical infrastructure and major events, in the UK and internationally, for all current and potential future ADS member companies of all sizes who possess capabilities and innovative solutions in this area.
