GIT SECURITY EMEA News February 2020


Dear reader,

Shouldn’t we all talk more about the positive things in our professional lives? For us, it is our main pursuit to inform the security industry, the end-users, the companies, as well as distributors and system integrators. GIT SECURITY meets many interesting people to talk to about many good things.

In mentioning interesting people, Kenneth Hune Petersen from Milestone talked to Heiko Baumgartner, Publishing Director, in our latest issue about exactly this topic: ‘The end-users need to be educated on what is possible and we at Milestone, our partners and you as the media should work on this. The consumer, on the other hand, needs to get informed about the value these systems bring for them. A better service, help with the search for a parking lot, assistance for disabled people and clever systems showing you the best way to get to your departure gate are just some examples.’

If this has now piqued your curiosity, you can access the whole interview in the latest print version of the magazine or on or website: 'Power of Open: Interview with Milestone'.

Talking about positive things can also help to promote acceptance on topics that are frowned upon, which is often caused by mistrust and a lack of information. Some relevant examples of this include video surveillance in cities, AI in security and facial recognition, to name a few. However, the security industry shows by many examples that these technologies can be used for the right cause in the right manner, by helping to increase security. One example of a great installation is the face detection technology Panasonic has introduced in stadiums like Brøndby stadium in Denmark. Not only can this system enhance fan safety by easily recognising and blacklisting repeat violent offenders, but the automated entrance system also makes access control so much faster for fans wishing to get into the stadium.

Let’s talk about even more positive things: What an exciting time for exhibitions. With Perimeter Protection in Nuremberg and Intersec Dubai still in our heads, February is yet to bring to us Sicur in Madrid, followed in March by the new show Intersec Building in, which is integrated into the Light&Building show in Frankfurt. You can read all the reviews and previews on our website, and this is especially exciting for us as Heiko Baumgartner was talking to Iris Jeglitza-Moshage, Chief of Communications, at Messe Frankfurt Exhibition about the new show.

If you are at the show on Tuesday, come and join the “GIT Together” Networking Event! On Tuesday, 10 March, at 05:30 pm, GIT SECURITY and Messe Frankfurt are co-hosting a “GIT Together“ at the Intersec Building in Frankfurt. Exchange ideas with us and other security professionals in the networking area of the Intersec Forum Hall 9.1, Stand D40. Food and drinks will be provided. For you can also send an email to us with the keyword ‘Intersec GIT Together’ to – we can provide you with a ticket (subject to availability) for free admission to the trade fair.

If you, dear reader, have something good to talk about, like a great product launch in 2020, look no further and hand it in for our GIT SECURITY AWARD 2021. The closing date for applications is March 31st, 2020 at

Enjoy reading this newsletter.
