New Delhi, Dec 10 (IANS) Better security systems are mandatory in the current scenario, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said on Thursday.
“We need better security systems. This is somewhat mandatory in the current scenario. This kind of show gives us to choose from a wide spectrum under one roof,” he said while inaugurating the three-day 9th International Fire & Security Exhibition and Conference (IFSEC) India Expo 2015 at Pragati Maidan here.
“In the age of smart technology, to match the pace of the smart cities, need for smart security is of utmost significance,” the organisers said in a statement.
“Analysts are of the opinion that the rise in terrorist activities, growing crime rates, data thefts, remote monitoring, growth of public infrastructure, increasing IT spending, government initiatives and increasing security spending are all boosting markets for surveillance systems in India.
“Against this landscape, as part of the world’s leading portfolio of security and fire safety events, IFSEC India provides an opportunity to its exhibitors and visitors to learn about the latest technology and industry trends and discover the best solutions to keep their business and clients secure amongst a showcase of products like CCTV & video surveillance, biometrics & RFID, integrated systems, access control, cyber security, integrated systems, physical security, perimeter protection, fire detection systems, intruder alarms and fire alarms on display,” the statement added.
Speaking at the launch, Yogesh Mudras, managing director, UBM India, said: “In today’s Indian landscape, security and surveillance requires rapid augmentation amidst industrial, commercial and residential establishments. UBM India’s objective for IFSEC India 2015, an offshoot of IFSEC Global which has a legacy of over 40 years, is to bring to the forefront this need and in response, the required solution offerings based on new technology to strengthen security in these establishments.”
