BICSI Releases New Standard for Electronic Safety and Security System Design

BICSI, the international association supporting the information technology systems (ITS) industry with information, education and knowledge assessment, announces the release of its latest standard, ANSI/BICSI 005-2013, Electronic Safety and Security (ESS) System Design and Implementation Best Practices.

The need for security is almost as old as mankind itself. Today, security systems are converging onto the network and its cabling infrastructure at an increasing rate. As the systems used within security have become more complex, so too has the cabling infrastructure to address both communication and security requirements.

Little has been written to support this convergence of security and cabling infrastructure, until now. BICSI 005 bridges the two worlds of security and communications by providing the security professional with the requirements and recommendations of a structured cabling infrastructure needed to support today's security systems while providing the cabling design professional information on different elements within safety and security systems that affect the design. BICSI 005 also provides information on the concept of "direct attach" and how it may be used within many forms of ESS systems.

"The protection against risks and threats to life-safety, business and personal assets is and always will be a matter of great importance," said Jerry Bowman, RCDD, NTS, RTPM, CISSP, CPP, CDCDP, BICSI President. "BICSI 005 is a tremendous resource for those working on the design and implementation of electronic safety and security and related infrastructure. This standard, like all BICSI standards, establishes best practices for the supporting infrastructure for a variety of security functions and systems. We truly appreciate the efforts of all the volunteer subject matter experts who contributed to this publication."
