security industry Challenges
Health and Safety:

In the high-risk security industry, personnel face physical danger compounded by the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to UK HSE, 69,208 non-fatal injuries and two fatalities were reported in 2020/21, underscoring the urgency of prioritizing health and safety. Security companies must invest in training and mission-critical technologies to mitigate risks effectively.

Hiring & Training:

A study from the Security Industry Authority (SIA) indicates that hiring and training skilled security personnel pose significant challenges. It reveals that 64% of UK security companies struggle to fill vacancies with qualified individuals. Moreover, only 15% of security personnel receive training in counter-terrorism measures. To address this, security firms must invest in comprehensive training programs to attract and retain competent staff. Offering ongoing training ensures personnel stay abreast of the latest security technology, threat assessments, and emergency response protocols.


Technological advancements present both opportunities and challenges for security firms. While tools like security cameras and access control systems enhance security, they also expose cyberattack vulnerabilities. A survey by Security Buyer shows that 76% of UK security professionals identify cybersecurity as the industry’s foremost challenge, with 49% of organizations experiencing breaches in the past year. This underscores the urgency for security companies to prioritize cybersecurity investments, including firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and employee training against phishing scams.

Cyber Security:

As noted in a report by the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI), the security industry confronts ongoing threats from terrorism, cybercrime, and physical assaults. The UK’s critical infrastructure, including power plants and transport systems, is particularly vulnerable to terrorism, cyber-attacks, and espionage. Insider threats and supply chain vulnerabilities are identified as major concerns. This underscores the critical need for comprehensive security strategies and stakeholder collaboration to mitigate security risks effectively.
