G4S staff breifing
Sizing up security
Modern technology has made every day activities like shopping, banking and even dating easier. We travel widely, with millions of people passing through airports every day and we send out passwords and personal details into cyberspace. These developments in daily living are often used for the good, but they are also exploited by criminals, allowing them to carry out their anti-social activities remotely and avoid detection. Technological advances therefore require security measures which are equally far-reaching. That’s where companies like G4S come in.
G4S is the world’s largest security solutions provider. Formed in 2004 from the merger of Securicor, Group4Falck and Wackenhut, the company has helped banks, governments, multinationals and individuals protect themselves against ever more sophisticated online and physical threats. It has more than 635,000 employees in 125 countries, and offers services ranging from port security to teaching people how to drive safely through ganglands. G4S uses its worldwide network of security experts to advise on and implement alarm systems, self-defence methods, IT security and public event surveillance.
