The company, 1st Academy of Security Science, Education & Training Pvt. Ltd. (1st ASSET), the publisher of SECURITY TODAY was incorporated in June 2000 with the objective of imparting skills and training to those who were keen to acquire knowledge and become aware of the latest best practices and technological updates in the security industry.
Perhaps the idea of fulfilling the above objective was tried before it’s time, the security industry then was not willing to invest in training for professional development. As a result our cash register did not ring for over three years!
Just as the promoters were looking for options, a well wisher suggested that perhaps, as the security market had not matured, the people involved in the security profession were only ready for some inexpensive form of education, and that too, delivered at their doorsteps! The idea of a high quality security magazine took shape and SECURITY TODAY was finally introduced into the Indian market in October 2004. It was formally launched with fanfare by India’s ‘Super Cop’ Mr. KPS Gill, renowned motivational speaker & author, Mr. Shiv Khera and Mr. RS Gupta (IPS) the former Commissioner of Police, Delhi.
SECURITY TODAY has emerged to be India’s largest circulated and the best read professional monthly magazine dedicated to the safety and security sector. By playing the role of a catalyst that fuels the organized growth of India’s booming protection industry, SECURITY TODAY aims to bridge the gap between the end users and buyers of security equipment and services by sharing knowledge and information.
