how to use this website
Welcome to britishsecurity.com which complements our publication British Security and Resilience for Critical National Infrastructure.
The navigation bars at the top and bottom of the page provide you with links to all the main sections of our site. The search box on many pages provides an opportunity to enter key words to search our database directly for companies, products (and services), locations or personnel.
Our aim is to provide a service to the security, resilience and related industries throughout the world by offering their purchasing managers easy access to the most pro-active suppliers of British products and services.
We list approximately 2,500 companies and they may select various levels of participation in our site.
The basic entry is free of charge and comprises company name, telephone and fax numbers, email and web site addresses plus up to four contact names.
Advertisers are listed ahead of all basic entries and also within the basic listings.
A full internet package comprises the company's logo and highlighted name, live email and website links, plus an extended listing describing the company's key products and services, their trade names and NATO product classifications.
In addition, many participants in the British Security publication have chosen to show their Company Profile entries online. These are indicated by a symbol placed next to their company entry or name. There are also search boxes where you can enter the name of the company required and our database will be searched.
Our editor allocates terms for each company from the data supplied to us, so that its products and services can appear in these indexes.
These terms are shown under all permutations e.g. steel security gate will also be automatically listed as security gate, steel and gate, security, steel.
If a product or service cannot be found, try looking for a generic term e.g. for resistors try electronic components. It may also be helpful to look in the Services index for suppliers (distributors, wholesalers or retailers) of the product.
There are also search boxes where you can enter the item required and our database will be searched.
You can also search services by classification <here>. These classifications are suggested by BDEC and the listed company selects the ones it considers most appropriate.

Tell us about changes you would like to make to your entry. All listed companies are allocated a security reference. This is shown on the questionnaires which we periodically send to them, either by post or by email. Entering this security reference on the update page will show a copy of all the data which we currently hold about that company. This can then be amended online and submitted. The changes will be checked and entered on our database and will be shown online at our next monthly update.
If you have mislaid or not yet received your security reference, you can request one on this update page.
