SecurityNewsDesk editor, Tom Reeve comments: “We will continue our online practice of reporting the facts about the security industry. We won’t try to dress up the truth or be afraid to challenge the status quo. In my book, no one should be considered too powerful to be held up to scrutiny by the security press.”

Peter Mawson says: “It’s obvious that current security industry magazines aren’t meeting the needs of commercial organisations or people who need unbiased information about the market. SecurityNewsDesk magazine will be the news magazine that the security industry has told us it wants.”
