BICSI releases reference manual

New manual will become the foundation document for electronic safety and security credential applicants.

05/08/2009


BICSI, the association supporting the information transport systems (ITS) industry with information, education, and knowledge assessment, has announced the release of the second edition of the Electronic Safety and Security Design Reference Manual (ESSDRM). The convergence of security systems such as access control and surveillance onto the network places much of the responsibility for future security designs into the hands of ITS professionals.

With significant changes from the first edition, the new manual provides key elements essential to anyone in ITS design, including:

• Principles of security
• ESS design process
• Access control
• Surveillance systems
• Intrusion detection systems
• Fire detection and alarm systems
• Notification, communication, and display devices
• Special systems
• Network security
• Systems integration
• Project management
• Systems operation and commissioning
• Codes, standards, and regulations
• Legal aspects of ESS design

As with all BICSI technical manuals, the ESSDRM is written to global best practices, vendor-neutral, carefully researched, and precisely written and edited by key industry professionals who are referred to as Subject Matter Experts (SMEs).
