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.

 

John Davies
Mr Davies who is one of our Guest Columnists this week examines the forthcoming Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 (which comes into force from 1st September 2013) that will directly affect the way in which school pupils' biometric data is authorised and stored. The article looks at what this could mean to the security industry and suggests ways in which any potential issues can be avoided.

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.

In a number of cases, Internet-attached private systems are not always maintained in an up-to-date state and, as such, are vulnerable to exploitation by mischief-makers and, of course, their cybercriminal peers.

With summer in full swing, employees across the country are heading out on vacation; likely topping their list of items to pack, mobile devices such as iPads, iPhones, Androids and BlackBerries.
