In recent years, security has become an increasingly important concern for individuals, organizations, businesses, communities and governments. As we move further into 2023, several security trends are emerging, reflecting both the ongoing evolution of technology and the increasing sophistication of security. Personnel such as security guards have also evolved to keep up with changing threats and technologies. In this article, we will explore some of the most important security trends to watch for in 2023.
Artificial intelligence is increasingly being used in the security industry to enhance security protocols and reduce the risk of security breaches as well as respond to potential threats.
Some examples of its uses are:
As technology continues to evolve, we can expect to see even more applications of AI in security, further enhancing safety and security.
Drones can also be used to respond to security threats in hard-to-reach areas, such as rooftops or other inaccessible locations.
4. Greater Diversity and Inclusion
The security industry has traditionally been male-dominated and lacking in diversity. However, in recent years, there has been a growing recognition of the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace. In 2023 onwards, we are witnessing security companies making a concerted effort to recruit and retain a more diverse workforce, in particular more women.
5. Adoption of Sustainable Practices
This is the integration of environmentally friendly and socially responsible actions into security operations. Security operations can have significant environmental impacts, such as energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and waste generation. They can as well have social impacts, such as the displacement of communities or the violation of human rights. By adopting sustainable practices, security organizations can reduce their environmental footprint and promote social equity and justice.
Some examples of sustainable practices in security include:
By taking action to reduce their environmental and social impacts, security organizations can contribute to a healthier and more resilient planet for future generations.
The security industry is evolving rapidly, driven by technological advancements, changing threats, and evolving societal norms. Industries, organisations and businesses who are able to adapt to these trends and embrace new technologies and practices will be well-positioned for success.
The fact that security technology is constantly evolving, combined with the point that security threats are becoming increasingly prominent and sophisticated, makes it doubly important to stay up to date with the latest security trends.
To ensure an up to date physical security and protection against the latest risks, it is highly recommended to partner with an experienced security solutions provider that specialises in integrated security systems.
