Write for us

Want to be seen as a thought-leader in the security and fire industry?

By becoming a guest writer you can boost both your company’s profile and your personal brand by sharing your expertise with our community.

Please read our guidelines below.

Please keep your submissions short and to the point. Those longer than 200 words will be rejected without reply – as will any that start with things like: “I’m a long-time reader of your site and your articles are inspiring and illuminating…”. If that sounds a bit unfriendly, it’s because we’re deluged with such requests and flattery will get you nowhere! Sorry.

All you need to give us is:

  • The name of your organisation (or the organisation on whose behalf you are writing)
  • Description of the organisation’s products/services
  • Your article idea or ideas
  • 1-3 examples of previous articles if applicable

That’s it! Short but sweet.

You will not be paid – but neither will we expect payment (unless you want to pay for advertorial or banner advertising – in which case, download our media pack here).

We will only consider posts related to the physical security or fire safety industries, and do not provide linkbacks for free. We will only link to an external site when the editor believes it is of further value to the reader, such as to legislation or a code of practice.

If we’re a bit slow to respond, apologies – we’re often inundated by such requests. You should hear within two weeks if it’s something we would like to follow up on.

Guidelines for submitting a guest article

Do you know what you’re talking about?

The blog should be on a subject you have some knowledge of or experience in. We’re more interested in articles from people within the industry – their views carry much more credibility.

This is not to say we will always reject articles from accomplished writers – but you must do your research on the subject!

Write for our audience

IFSEC Global caters to the the security and fire safety industry. And this means the entire supply chain: everyone from manufacturers to the people who install security systems and those who procure, manage and operate CCTV, access control and intruder alarm systems.

If you have any questions about what would make for interesting article, do get in touch.


We only accept articles which are original, as duplicate copy on two websites is viewed negatively by search engines and helps no-one. Please make sure than any submissions are exclusive to our website.

How long should an article be?

The best articles are concise and to the point. As a rough guide try to keep it between 600-1,000 words in length. By all means go longer – but as the article continues you’ll be speaking to a dwindling audience as readers decide they’ve read enough. Why waste your time?

Add visual examples, graphs and videos

The more ‘colour’ you can add to an article the better. Ask yourself whether a graph or table of data would help visualise your point better than text and and provide links to relevant videos.

Lists and bullet points are recommended

Easy to read, and easy to write, it’s worth including a bullet-pointed list of recommendations in every article.

Your personal bio and headshot

Please supply us with the author’s job title and head-shot image and the URL you would like us to link to. If you want to add a line or two about the organisation you can – but this is optional.

Help us promote your article

It’s in both our interests if you promote your article on social media platforms. Don’t be shy! We’ll certainly help you out on that front. The more eyeballs we can get on your content, the better!
