For several years now I’ve heard that the physical security integrators (PSIs) will be dead and IT integrators will take over their space in the market because PSIs do not have the skills needed to compete.
Thank you all for making the first IESA Legislative Day in Springfield a success! From the reports I've received from the 95 attendees, we were able to make personal contacts with many lawmakers across the state who agree with our opposition to House Bill 1301.
When the economy is doing badly, fewer people are willing to risk their disposable income in casinos, and Las Vegas and Atlantic City have suffered accordingly from the negative impact of the nation’s recent economic woes. More frugal corporate travel policies during the economic downturn have also hurt these convention destinations, as reflected by lower occupancy rates.
Vector Security’s three year-old Loss Prevention Foundation (LPF) scholarship program, saw its largest applicant numbers to date.
