MTA to Test SecurOS® UVSS and UTSS 
The Transit Tech Lab — a public-private initiative created by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and the Partnership Fund for New York City to accelerate innovation in public transportation —announced this week that ISS is among 19 companies that have been selected to collaborate with the MTA and other area transit agencies to test technologies designed to support the agencies’ various objectives. Specifically, the MTA, in conjunction with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and NJ Transit, will test the SecurOS® UVSS (Under-Vehicle Surveillance System) and SecurOS® UTSS (Under-Train Surveillance System) to determine how they can be leveraged to build a more resilient and adaptive transit system.

Fortaleza Turns to ISS for Next-Gen Video Intelligence  
Located on the northeast coast of Brazil, Fortaleza, which is Portuguese for “Fortress” and so named for the role it played in ongoing colonial battles throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, is one of the largest cities in the country with a population of just over four million.  

After experiencing abnormally high rates of homicide and property crimes in 2017, the city examined making public security policy changes that eventually led them to new investments in security technology by the City of Fortaleza, through the Municipal Secretariat of Citizen Security (SESEC) and Municipal Guard of Fortaleza (GMF). The following year, Fortaleza officially implemented its Municipal Urban Protection Program (PMPU) and deployed a wide range of new security solutions, including video management software and analytics from ISS. 

To learn more about this extensive deployment and the benefits that the city has experienced as result, click here to read an in-depth Q&A with Col. Eduardo Holanda, the former Secretary of Security for Fortaleza.

  • May 11th at 1 p.m. ET:  Webinar: Physical Security for Facility Managers — Building safety and security requirements have been redefined in recent years and physical security systems need to keep up. They’ve evolved from handling video surveillance and access control to becoming key to an organization’s digital transformation. Creating a strategic approach that is holistic and stresses policy and technology unification gives users a consistent experience across security tasks. This webinar will discuss how facility and security managers can assess their building’s technology needs and properly integrate security technologies into their overall technology stack.  
  • May 22nd at 1 p.m. ET: Webinar: What Is Proptech and Why Security is a Key Element — Proptech refers to the use of technology in the research, design, analysis, and management of residential and commercial properties to make the process more efficient, secure, financially viable, sustainable, and streamlined. Proptech has recently seen a boom in investment. In 2021 alone, there was $32 billion (USD) in capital invested in proptech alone. This webinar will discuss why proptech is white-hot, and why many experts believe we have entered a new era in how commercial buildings operate and, more importantly, how tenants, visitors and residents expect buildings to function and how facilities are approaching security policy and technology. 
  • May 29th at 1 p.m. ET: Video Roundtable: Lessons Learned — A Security & Risk Roundtable. A successful workplace violence prevention program should be based on the implementation of effective programmatic elements that drive the program forward. These elements include multidisciplinary involvement, risk assessment, threat assessment and management, policy, documentation, and training. So, what does implementing a good workplace violence prevention program entail for organizations? Featuring our very own Charles Burns, this webinar will deal with best practices for preventing workplace violence and how to integrate technology into a mitigation solution.
