The security industry has been important forever – it is never going to lose it significance in our day to day lives. It has had to change and adapt over the years in order to keep up with modern concerns and adapt to the changing face of the UK. Here are some of the ways in which it has changed:
- It has become more regulated. This is a very positive change and means that people can trust their security services completely. It is no longer the case that anyone can be a security guard – they will need to have had the right training first.
- It is designed to respond to terrorism as well. This is now more of a threat in the UK, and the security industry is always looking for new ways to keep people safe from terrorism.
- It is a legal requirement. You will often need to have a security presence, such as on the doors of a club or at an event.
