Growing awareness of security and safety issues, increased outsourcing of public security functions and technology convergence and integration represent some of the biggest current changes in the security and safety industry. Security systems, products and services are increasingly becoming an integral part of day-to-day life, and the importance of the industry is growing. Today's security and safety industry is rapidly expanding beyond its traditional boundaries. This calls for a more comprehensive business approach and for companies to integrate their services and technologies. For networked players, the market offers great opportunities also from outside the traditional security business field.
