Paloma Velasco Merino, Executive Director of the Spanish Security Companies Association (AES), says that “digitalisation in our industry is advancing at a moderate rate”, adding that “the two main industry associations, AES and APROSER, have presented a digitalisation proposal in recent months based on engagement between the Ministry of the Interior (responsible for inspection and control in the sector) and Private Security firms”.
According to Ms. Velasco, Executive Director of the Spanish Security Companies Association, the digitalisation that the AES and the Professional Association of Private Security Companies (APROSER) have presented in recent months, based on engagement between the Ministry of the Interior and private security firms is aligned with one of the pillars of the España Puede: Recovery, Resilience and Transformation Plan. “It could be articulated at the heart of the pillar referring to actions to be developed in the sphere of public-private partnership”, she added. It “is coherent with the Digital Spain Plan 2025” (with planned investment of 70 billion euros).
The main objective of this proposal is to “drive the digitalisation of administrative and operational management of private security in Spain, and collaboration and communication between public and private partnership through the creation of a Multidisciplinary Digital Platform that allows for the collection and management of information and management of all the processes involved.” This platform “would see the process optimised, would put our Security Forces at the cutting edge of technology and make them an international leader in from a European standards perspective.”
AES y APROSER have prepared an extensive presentation to support the proposal, and Ms. Velasco invites those interested in finding out more to contact one of the association.
