Yes, that is the security system indicator. If it is flashing, it means it has been triggerred. The key that you used has an embedded transponder chip inside it. This is different from the alarm system whereby it connects with the central locking system.

Thank you very much. The symbole does not appear to be flashing it just illuminated, are you able to advise on what I can do to restore the system

If you have a spare key, try it. If not you would need appropriate scan tool to check if the immobilizer is faulty.
