SSI’s Top 10 Security Stories From 2021

By the end of 2020, it’s probably safe to say many people were thinking, “At least 2021 can’t be any worse.” Well, it got worse.

Maybe not in all senses, but there were new complications in addition to the lingering COVID-19 pandemic. The year began with an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. This was followed by both labor and supply chain shortages that have impacted just about every industry there is.

Those challenges compounded efforts by integrators to upgrade their radios in time for the upcoming 3G sunset. Unsurprisingly, all of these themes make appearances in SSI‘s most-read stories of 2021.

Representing a sign of the times, the year’s most popular story was an article on supplemental EIDL assistance, which suggests the content reached readers beyond SSI‘s audience of security professionals. No doubt owners of all sorts of businesses were looking for this type of information.

Also very popular in 2021 was the seemingly never-ending saga of Allied Universal’s purchase of G4s. The deal was first proposed in October 2020 but wasn’t sealed until March 2021.

The rest of the year’s top stories include the usual topics — M&A, lawsuits and Chinese manufacturer drama and more. Check them out in the slideshow!
