Inside this issue, With Aotearoa’s Covid borders opening up after an over two-year closure, we look at the challenges facing the tourism sector as it prepares to welcome international visitors once again. Amid a cost of living crisis, Scott La Franchie delves into the relationship between inflation and theft.

Drawing from extensive project management experience, David Withers APP lists the myriad reasons why projects fail – or under-deliver – and burn money and people in the process.

In a recent NZSA and ASIS NZ Chapter webinar, PSPLA Chair Trish McConnell talked security licensing, COVID, omicron, and how the Private Security Personnel Licensing Authority (PSPLA) has been responding to the challenges of now – and looking to the challenges of the future. Inside, we feature the first half of her extensive presentation.

We also hear from IFSEC #1 Global Influencer in Security and Consultant to Fortinet Jennie Vickers on Auckland Council’s ground-breaking new values-based contract template, and David Tombs discusses what’s in store for electronic monitoring.

Writing for ASIS International’s Security Technology magazine, Jeffrey A. Slotnick, CPP, PSP looks at the perpetually fascinating question of robotics and their place in security, and a Flinders University study looks at the activities of scammers during crises and disasters.

All this, plus the latest industry and product news in this issue of NZSM!

Stay safe and stay well.
