On the anniversary of this infamous crime, we ask - how would it be investigated if it happened in 2015?

52 years ago, on a quiet piece of track somewhere in Buckinghamshire, a Royal mail train was held up by a gang of 15 men, robbing it of the large quantity of cash it was hauling to London. After a successful raid, they made off with £2.6 million (equivalent £50m today) and although most of the gang were eventually arrested and imprisoned, it required one of the largest criminal investigations in UK history. As such, we’ve decided to have a look at how the robbers may have been caught by electronic or computer based evidence if it had been attempted in 2015.

The impact of recent cyber attacks will be felt for years to come, perhaps having risen to a new level of hurt with the Target and Sony attacks. With a Fortune 500 CEO ousted and a Hollywood movie held hostage, cyber-security is on the minds of chief executives and board members as they gather in their first meetings of 2015. How can a massive organization with complex systems and networks prevent itself from becoming the next Target or Sony? Is there any hope?

Neglecting the general appearance of a building and its surroundings can attract vandals, leading to an increase in crime and antisocial behaviour that can easily spiral out of control. Corps Security’s CEO, Peter Webster, explains the principles behind broken window theory and suggests ways that facilities managers can avoid their premises becoming a target for criminal activity.

It seems that stories of employees ‘going rogue’ are always in the press – but how can companies stop them before they make the headlines? Do you even know if you have a rogue employee? If you’re a large multi-national organisation, the laws of probability aren’t in your favour. Add to the mix a person who’s earning minimum wage, handling data that has a retail value on the black market and the temptation might, one day, just prove too much.

The number of annual security incidents caused by insider threats continues to increase.  In The CERT Guide to Insider Threats, Capelli et al writes, “Insider threats are an intriguing and complex problem. Some assert that they are the most significant threat faced by organizations today.” Disgruntled system administrators damage data and systems, skilled professionals steal intellectual property, and inferior employees use information to achieve political or financial objectives for their self-gain.  Any of these can constitute a critical national defense breach or breach of public trust.
