Any business operating as a surveillance or security service provider, be it for the installation, configuration, support and monitoring of CCTV equipment, for a control room or as surveillance operators, may only legally operate with the required certification from PSiRA (Private Security Industry Regulatory Authority).
PSiRA is the governing body and regulatory authority for the private security industry. The mandate of PSIRA derives from the Private Security Industry Regulation Act 56 of 2001. The primary objective of the Authority is to regulate the private security industry and to exercise effective control over the practice of the occupation of security service provider in the public and national interest, and in the interest of the private security industry itself.
Johann Coetzee, Managing Director: Commercial and Technology Solutions at Datacentrix, said that his company has received a formal PSiRA certification, making the company one of a handful of local ICT organisations to hold the proper accreditation for surveillance and security-related environments.
“As a business that includes ICT facility services, such as CCTV (video surveillance) and access control within our repertoire, it was an absolute requirement to ensure that we are PSiRA compliant.”
Datacentrix offers technical expertise across a mature offering, providing proven execution capability that is endorsed by the world’s foremost technology partners. With a strong African footprint, the company is recognised for its agility, in-depth industry knowledge, ethical practices and strong overall performance.
