New research highlights how the uncertainty around COVID-19 alongside fears of becoming stranded abroad has led to the majority (83%) of British holidaymakers saying they would prefer to take their vacations in the UK. This change has driven a huge increase in staycations and the trend looks set to continue into 2021.
There is one guaranteed way that a family staycation will be ruined and that’s to receive a call from the police telling you that your home has been burgled. You will immediately need to return home to assess what’s missing and possibly any damage that may have been caused. We have previously provided some guidance on home security but it’s worth considering exactly how burglars identify and choose their targets so that you can take effective precautions before going on holiday and avoid becoming a staycation crime statistic.

In our previous post addressing Rural and Farming Security Challenges it was noted that rural crime has changed from opportunist theft of maybe a few tools to organised crime gangs specifically targeting high end farm machinery and livestock. The latest 2020 rural crime report from NFU Mutual acknowledges that we are living in challenging times for the countryside and the farming industry. The COVID-19 pandemic initially appeared to have driven a reduction in rural theft, but more recently there are signs that thieves have become more active and better organised.

The Coronavirus lockdown and the recommendation that we avoid public transport has prompted many of us to hop on our bikes. But researchers at the University of Leeds’ Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions (Creds), report that the greatest impact on emissions will come from the use of electrically assisted bicycles outside urban areas.
The global e-bike market is projected to grow from and estimated $21.1 billion in 2018 to reach $38.6 billion by 2025 as the popularity of electric bicycles soars. This is underpinned by people’s need to safely get back to work while avoiding unnecessary contact with others, along with their desire to do something positive for the environment by not using their cars.

We all understand the need to ensure that valuable items such as motorbikes, scooters, ATVs, caravans and ride-on lawnmowers, amongst many others, are secured and protected from theft. While the volume of traffic on UK roads dropped by as much as 70% during the COVID-19 lockdown, theft of (or from) motorcycles, caravans and automobiles has not decreased significantly. In fact police forces in some areas of the UK have been reporting higher crime figures than pre-lockdown. For example, Lincolnshire reported a 35% month-on-month increase in vehicle crimes between February and March 2020.
High security chains are a primary security device, often used to secure high value items. Yet many people are unaware of changes that have made what were once considered to be high security chains much less secure.

Over recent years the impact that human activity is having on our natural environment has become starkly apparent. Global warming is happening at a worrying pace and overwhelming evidence shows that humans are the root cause. We are continuously seeing record breaking temperatures, extreme weather changes and rising sea levels as the polar ice caps melt. One of the main contributing factors to the deterioration of our natural environment is corporate pollution. Many businesses have huge carbon footprints and create enormous quantities of corporate waste. But most forward-thinking organisations are now taking steps to reduce the impact that their operations are having on our world.
Here are some of the green initiatives that we’ve implemented here at Insight Security which we hope will inspire others to do what they can to reduce their environmental impact and implement environmentally sustainable business practices.

On May 22nd 2017 twenty-two people tragically lost their lives when suicide bomber Salman Abedi, 22, detonated a shrapnel-laden homemade explosive device in the foyer of the Manchester Arena as people were leaving at the end of an Ariana Grande concert. A further 139 people were wounded in the blast, more than half of them children, and several hundred more suffered serious psychological trauma.
Since the attack Figen Murray, the mother of attack victim Martyn Hett, has vigorously campaigned and lobbied central Government to make public venues adopt tough, anti-terrorism security measures. The UK Government fully supports these proposals which have already being welcomed by Manchester City Council.

In the latest Rural Crime Report for 2019 from NFU Mutual the chairman, Richard Percy, acknowledges that in his lifetime rural theft has changed from opportunist thieves, stealing a few tools to organised criminal gangs targeting expensive machinery and even flocks of sheep!
