security industry global Challenges

Health and Safety:

Security personnel are at high risk of physical harm and injury due to the nature of their work. The COVID-19 pandemic has added another layer of concern. According to the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE), in 2020/21, there were 69,208 non-fatal injuries reported under the RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations) for the security and investigation activities sector. In the same period, there were also two fatal injuries reported. This highlights the importance of implementing robust health and safety measures within the security industry. To overcome these challenges, security companies can invest in training programs and mission-critical technologies.

Hiring & Training:

Hiring and training competent security personnel can be a challenge. A study by the Security Industry Authority (SIA) found that 64% of security companies in the UK have difficulty finding qualified personnel to fill job vacancies. Additionally, only 15% of security personnel had received training in counter-terrorism measures. This emphasises the need for security companies to invest in comprehensive training programs to attract and retain competent personnel. To overcome this, security companies can provide ongoing training to their staff to keep them up-to-date on the latest security technology, threat assessments, and emergency response procedures.


Advancements in technology have created both opportunities and challenges for security companies. While security cameras, access control systems, and biometric scanners have improved security measures, they have also made it easier for cybercriminals to hack into security systems. A survey by Security Buyer found that 76% of security professionals in the UK believe cybersecurity is the biggest challenge facing the security industry. Furthermore, the same survey revealed that 49% of organizations have experienced a cybersecurity breach in the past 12 months. This highlights the need for security companies to prioritize cybersecurity measures and invest in cybersecurity measures, such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and employee training on phishing scams.


The security industry faces constant threats from terrorism, cybercrime, and physical attacks. According to a report by the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI), the UK’s critical infrastructure, such as power plants, transport systems, and communication networks, face various threats, including terrorism, cyber-attacks, and espionage. The report found that insider threats and supply chain vulnerabilities were among the most significant concerns for the security industry. This highlights the importance of implementing comprehensive security plans and collaborating with relevant stakeholders to address security threats effectively.
