On 1st July 2012 the new Danish Weapons and Explosives Act entered into force. The Act aims to regulate private armed maritime security officers deployed in protection of Danish merchant ships against piracy. In terms of Danish national security policy the Act signals a significant departure from the traditional paradigm of maintaining state monopoly on the legitimate use of lethal force, thereby transferring responsibility onto private security actors. This problem statement is not unique to Danish legislators, but generally appears to be found across contemporary debates at national and international level. The presentation questions whether current legislation appropriately underpins accountability in the private security industry as a legitimate stakeholder in national security policies and conflict resolution strategies.

He has been Chairman of the Board of the Swedish Carnegie Institute and also Senior Fellow of the East West Institute. He has written more than 20 books on drug problems, professional ethics and defense of human rights. He is a regular contributor on security issues to professional magazines.

Private security companies have taken over important security functions of the state, such as watch-keeping. Having a foot in both the state and the market can, however, cause ethical tensions. The reason is that the state and the market follow different ethical syndromes (Jacobs: Systems of Survival, 1992). An ethical syndrome is a set of norms that are internally consistent but may be in conflict with another syndrome. A state servant may use force in office but may not make commercial bargains over decisions (that would be corruption). A businessman may make profits but not use violence (that would be mafia business). Private security companies may end up in a conflict between these syndromes. The sector is still pondering the issues.

The presentation will outline the ethical conflicts and point to questions which will have to be answered as part of the ongoing professionalization of the private security sector.

Session 7

Glenn Schoen
Glenn C. Schoen (1963) is Director of G4S Risk Advisory in Amsterdam. An American born and raised in the Netherlands, he has had a varied career to date that began with law enforcement and progressed to security analysis, consulting and management.

In crises, security managers’ roles can vary from Crisis Management Team member to arranging emergency support to fielding questions from journalists. Drawing on 25 years of witnessing and working over 100 client crises and giving more than 1000 media interviews, the presenter will share his hard-won list of Best Practices for senior security managers on how to practically improve their personal performance in crisis situations. From preparation, informing the C-suite and personal communication to managing stress and interacting with the media, this will be a highly dynamic and engaging speech drawing on real-life experience in settings as varied as Washington, NY, London, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Cairo, Moscow, Almaty, Port Moresby, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong.

Session 8

Oliver C Fein

The presentation is based on a close examination of failures in personal security and safe travel. The scope reaches from the awareness factor to potential threats and ends with Kidnap for ransom. The traditional travel security is focused on behaviour and interacting abroad like “keeping low profile” etc. In contrast to that focus, this presentation is aiming on the level of awareness while travelling – or even before. Since 90 % of the total incidents are avoidable with the right state awareness, it is worthwhile to have a look from that angle. The core is a summary of real life incidents.

Session 9

André Rickardsson
André Rickardsson is among many things a computer forensic expert, used in Swedish courts by both prosecutors and lawyers. Mr. Rickardsson has more than 20 years experience of advanced computer and network security from government agencies and companies. Much of what he has done in the service are things that ordinary people buy books to read about. Today he owns Bitsec AB witch is the leading computer forensic company in the Nordic region.

Today criminals are using “criminal edge” technology and governments are using “bleeding” edge technology for cyber warfare.

Law enforcement should be using cutting edge technology, preferable even bleeding edge technology. At best they are using yesterday’s technology.

The judicial system should at least have a basic understanding of computer forensics. Instead sometimes with regards to computer forensic evidence in Swedish courts the legal security was better during the inquisition.

Obviously certain authorities have both the technical expertise and ingenuity for using offensive techniques, while those in the trenches have to defend networks and investigate computer-related crimes with the left overs.

Maybe it should be the other way around.

Session 10

Barrie Millett
A dynamic successful leader with a strong blend of strategic, technical and operational experience with an excellent track record of delivering results in fast paced demanding environments.

Encompassing a broad and successful career including; military service, strategy development, tactical security and operational risk management across multiple sectors including; energy, finance, telecoms and manufacturing.

Honorary President of ASIS International UK Chapter.

Over the past 5 years there has been a substantial increase in the successful use of direct action against companies and governments across the world. These actions have been used to highlight perceived issues about the environment and, in some instances, prevent organisations from going about their daily activities or stopping specific projects. This has very often resulted in significant impact on daily operations and project work.

With the increase of sharing of tactics and use of social media various groups are becoming more interactive and collaborative in their actions - sharing tactics, learning from organisations and police response protocols, sharing of resources and conducting simultaneous joint operations.

The true impact of past actions and the overarching emerging threat landscape will be used to demonstrate the professionalism of some of these groups and demonstrate some tried and tested mitigation strategies that have effectively managed the threat.

Session 11

Torsten Wolf
Torsten Wolf is the Group Head of Crime and Fraud Prevention for Zurich Financial Services. In his role he leads the Group’s efforts to prevent, detect and respond to non-claims related crime and fraud that is directed against Zurich.

Torsten is a Certified Internal Auditor and holds a Degree in Business Studies and Economics as well as a Master Degree in Business Administration. He is a regular presenter on topics of crime and fraud at international conferences.

Enterprises are increasingly confronted with the challenging task to protect their assets and their reputation. Especially companies that operate across the globe find it extremely difficult to protect their operations from criminals and fraudsters effectively and in a consistent manner. With reference to Zurich’s comprehensive anti-crime framework the audience will get an understanding of crime and fraud risks an insurance organization typically faces and how these risks are being addressed by a multinational insurance organization. They can then reflect on how components of Zurich’s anti-crime framework may help enhance the fraud control environment within their own organizations.

Session 12

David Rubens
I hold an MSc in Security and Risk Management from Leicester University, where I am a Visiting Lecturer and Dissertation Supervisor on their Security, Terrorism and Policing programme, and am currently studying on the Professional Doctorate programme at Portsmouth University Department of Criminology & Justice. I was a Visiting Fellow at the Security and Resilience Department, Cranfield University, UK Defence Academy (2009-’10), where I was a Visiting Lecturer on the Strategic Leadership programme focusing on terrorism and public policy, and the management of large-scale, complex multi-agency programmes. My Doctorate Thesis is focused on the issues of strategic management of large-scale, complex and ‘Wicked’ problems, and I have given presentations at major conferences in London, New York, Moscow, Tokyo and Kiev on these subjects.

The challenges faced by modern security managers are growing increasingly complex, whether in their own immediate impact or in terms of their secondary consequences. Traditional security management frameworks are proving inadequate to deal with the problems thrown up by recent events such as Hurricane Katrina, the Fukushima tsunami disaster, global IT crashes and the power outages in India. This presentation will look at some of the emerging ideas around ‘Wicked Problems’, non-traditional decision making and capability development that will be of immediate relevance to anyone involved in any aspect of security management, whether commercial or governmental.

He enthusiastically combines his theoretical knowledge with practical training to efficiently make all course participants a superior communicator. He has gathered an impressive collection of practical exercises that he uses to highlight theoretical phenomena, which gives the participants a solid theoretical as well as practical base to stand on.

Have you ever been taught to look out for the nervous twitches of a liar, the body shifts, the crossed arms the gaze aversions and so on, even if they are remarkably unreliable? Deceptive individuals tend to hide their fear of detection under the cloak of controlled verbal communication; they divert your attention from their lies. Through systematic verbal analysis techniques we have the tools to detect deception, spot omissions and measure the level of commitment shown towards your investigation. Verbal analysis is without a doubt the most powerful tool in detecting deception!

Private Security in Europe is obviously shaped by local regulation. Recent research highlights however that resulting guarding costs can vary widely based primarily on the strength of public/private sector relationship. Using shopping malls as an illustration (a global business with few players they are also at the crossroad of public and private spaces), we will draw some lessons and trends for the future. A specific focus will also be made on the Swedish market, one of the most striking example of public/private sector partnership in this area.

The presentation will be on European security industry trends illustrated/or with a zoom on private security in shopping malls and more specifically in Sweden (PhD research highlights that for a similar shopping mall guarding costs can be as much as 5 times lower than in other European countries).

The CEO of Steen&Strom will comment on their own experience in Sweden but also put it into perspective of his group Klepierre (300 shopping malls in Europe) and partly owned by the American Simon Property.

This presentation considers the converged aspects of the standard and outlines how to establish: “A cross-discipline and cross-functional risk assessment and management framework that identifies, analyzes, evaluates, and treats all security risks within a singular managed process”. Organisations can no longer consider security risks in isolation as recent events such as wiki leaks and Stuxnet have shown. Cyber security increasingly impacts Physical security and the need for an integrated security strategy is agreed. This presentation shows how the standard can help teaming with other business functions and processes in order to ensure an effective Enterprise Security Risk Management strategy.

Session 21

Erik de Vries, CPP

His experience include several operational roles in G4S, including prisons, risk management and consultancy as well as conducting CPP certification courses. He coaches security managers and management teams as an independent consultant on many risk & security related issues.

Social Media plays an increasing role in crisis management. Whether to monitor media, or to anticipate threats. But social media sometimes acts as the creator of crises. Recent examples are “Project-X” invitations where crowds are quickly mobilized for - existing or non-existing - parties. Such invitations bring astonishingly large crowds together. How to respond to that? Many security professionals barely understand social media. How does it work? Why do young people so anxiously shape their life around it? How do network gatherings work? How to bring social media knowledge in the crisis team? This presentation focuses on practical lessons learned.

Session 22

The following regional consequences of the Syrian crisis – both potential and actual - have emerged since the onset of the conflict: increased Saudi-Iranian tensions; instability in Lebanon; worsening sectarian relations across the Gulf; jihadist exploitation of the conflict, with benefits for al-Qaeda; and increased threat to Israel. The Arab Revolutions sent a shockwave around the region but it is the conflict in Syria that is likely to have the most significant and lasting effect. This talk will help businesses understand and predict the changes ahead, with the likely implications for their regional operations.

Session 23

The operational effectiveness of organizations distinct security facets is often not capable of critical assessment by the very organisation that is paying for these assets and services. It has been necessary, therefore, to both determine and evidence a variety of security failures and, ultimately, contrast these sample conditions with examples of organisational security successfully achieving a range of targeted objectives, - to the complete understanding and budgetary capability of the target organisation. The issue of risk and security auditing is, therefore, a key feature of the presentation, as is the requirement to emphasize that the success of a security strategy.

In 2010 he was recognised by the BSIA with a special award for ‘outstanding service to the security sector’.

In this talk Martin Gill will discuss why criminals succeed. He will report on the latest research findings. Having spoken to offenders in prison, Martin will discuss the ways in which offenders are adapting to the latest challenges posed by security, the skills sets they are using, and why they feel they have the upper hand. In fact criminals rely on security professionals and people working in organisations not doing their job well. Martin will discuss the implications for the security profession.

The use of real-time tracking technologies provides, besides the optimisation of logistic processes, benefits for the security management , such as the collection of concrete knowledge of security incidents and tools to minimise consequences. Although the basic technology is mature, the selection of the optimal technological solution, business case development, implementation, and the exploitation of real-time tracking data to security management are challenging tasks. VTT has been involved in several European and national projects regarding monitoring technology to improve supply chain security. Experience gained from these projects, with a critical analysis of the benefits and limitations will be described.

He is the author of Demystifying Communications Risk published by Gower Publishing and is currently working on a second book covering cyber crime and security.

Social networking is an Internet within the Internet. Now the communications tool of choice for hundreds of millions of users, social media services such as Facebook provide unprecedented access and communications capabilities at almost zero cost. However, these services also introduce a new dimension to some very old risks. Five percent of malicious incidents in cyber space now occur within or via social networking sites and this problem is compounded by the ease with which anyone can create and use a fake user profile on almost any of the social media services. Issues seen include:
• Data protection risks in relation to user’s account and profile information, which often includes dates of birth, addresses and telephone numbers. (LinkedIn recently suffered a hacking attack that is thought to have exposed 6.5 million user names and passwords).
• Fraud attacks, Malware, Spyware and Botnet infections that have the potential to attack systems and bring operations to a halt, as demonstrated by the Stuxnet, Flame and Shamoon Worms over the past two years.
• Identity verification risks, demonstrated by the ease with which fake social media accounts can be created and ‘friends’ found. This has particular relevance in terms of the long term value of social media data as evidence at trial.
• Harassment, grooming and targeting, whereby criminals and others are using social media to identify, locate and investigate potential victims .
• Reputational harm, particularly from events such as ‘Twitter Storms’ where users target a brand and generate thousands of negative messages that are read by millions of consumers in a very short period of time.

In the social media domain, ‘loose clicks sink ships’, and the impact of errors or disclosures on personal relationships, reputations and corporate trust can also be dire. This very timely presentation examines the risks and describes a recommended set of best practices for firms and individual users.

His work has been cited over 200 times since 2005.

We argue that this is only possible when combining fundamental psychological and technical insights with practical applications. We will explain our psychological analysis of perpetrators and analysis of criminal modus operandi. Based on this analysis we present research, showing how subtle signals by security personnel increases the chances to detect individuals with malicious intentions. We will discuss research carried out to identify competences that make excellent security officers/profilers. We will present our research on intelligent camera systems to support the human security resources. We conclude with typical problems in assessing the effectiveness of security interventions and how to overcome these.

Andrew Williams, CPP
Andy Williams is Head of Global Operations, Quality Assessment and Education for Safehotels Alliance AB, a Swedish Company based in Gothenburg as well as a Senior Partner with Temi Group – Global Security Risk Management.

From 2003 until 2010, there was an unprecedented escalation of terrorist bombing and armed attacks on hotels in specific regions of the world. However, in the last two years this choice of target appears to have subsided, why is this or is it the lull before a new storm of attacks over the coming years. The presentation will provide insight and analysis to this question through ‘global news headline’ case studies the presenter was personally involved, examination and forecasting of future trends and potential bombing hotspots, based on:
- Analysis of hotel bombings in Egypt , Jordan, Pakistan, Indonesia and India as an indicator of future attacks
- Presenting a CARVER perspective of how terrorists plan , select and execute an attack – with insight on the foiled ‘Barot hotel bomb plot’.
- Insight into hotel design blast mitigation principals though case study of the conversion of a bombed commercial building in Istanbul into a luxury hotel.

The world around us has changed and the role of security manager has changed with it. We can no longer consider ourselves just security managers, we are business managers entrusted with protecting and creating value for our organizations. How do we integrate security management tools into the overall approach for risk management in the organization? Using a systems approach with new standards can serve as our entry into the C-suite management team.
