This blog will discuss the latest security innovations being implemented by governments, corporations and private individuals across the world. Here, I will share my thoughts and findings regarding the new security needs the 21st century is bringing our way and present cutting edge solutions that are entering the international security market. While attack and defence methods are evolving, for us security experts the premise remains the same, giving you the basic sense of safety you need in order to lead a healthy, happy and fulfilled life. To keep you safe we must stay informed.

Where My Story Begins

I have officially been in the security business since 1994 when I founded my own security company, EMI Systems Ltd. However, my acquaintance with this field began a few years earlier during my military service. As a born and raised Israeli, I served in the IDF (Israel Defence Forces) where I was trained as a combat soldier. After the army, I moved to Nigeria and spent some time in the construction and infrastructure industry, where I learned the business ecosystem of the country, experienced the local culture and became part of the society. After holding a number of managerial positions, I decided to use my unique toolkit of business and military experience to start my own company.
