Ray Mabus

Secretary of the Navy, USA

Ray Mabus is the 75th United States Secretary of the Navy and leads America's Navy and Marine Corps.

As Secretary of the Navy, Mabus is responsible for conducting the affairs of the Department of the Navy, including recruiting, organizing, equipping, training and mobilizing. Additionally, he oversees the construction and repair of naval ships, aircraft, and facilities, and formulates and implements policies and programs consistent with the national security policies established by the President and the Secretary of Defense. Secretary Mabus is responsible for an annual budget in excess of $170 billion and leadership of almost 900,000 people.

Upon assumption of office and throughout his tenure, Mabus has prioritized improving the quality of life of Sailors, Marines and their families, decreasing the Department’s dependence on fossil fuels, strengthening partnerships and revitalizing the Navy’s shipbuilding program.

Leading the world's only global Navy, Mabus has traveled nearly 715 thousand miles to over 95 countries to maintain and develop relationships with national and international officials and visit with Sailors and Marines forward deployed or stationed around the world. He has traveled to Afghanistan on 11 separate occasions, in recognition of the sacrifice and service of Sailors and Marines deployed in combat zones.

To prepare service members and their families for the high tempo operations of today’s Navy and Marine Corps, Mabus announced in 2012 the “21st Century Sailor and Marine” initiative, designed to build and maintain the most resilient and ready force possible.

Mabus also directed the Navy and Marine Corps to change the way they use, produce and acquire energy, and set an aggressive goal that no later than 2020, the Navy and Marine Corps obtain at least 50% of their energy from alternative sources. In pursuit of that goal the Department has achieved several milestones. In 2012, President Obama announced in his State of the Union address that the Department will purchase or facilitate the production of 1GW of renewable energy for use on Navy and Marine Corps installations. The Navy also demonstrated the Great Green Fleet in 2012, a carrier strike group in which every participating U.S. Navy ship and type of aircraft operated on alternative energy sources including nuclear energy and biofuels.

Secretary Mabus has made increasing the size of the naval fleet and protecting the industrial base a top budget priority of the Department. During his tenure, the Navy went from building fewer than five ships a year to having more than 40 ships under contract, most of them in fixed-price, multi-year deals that assure value for taxpayers, certainty for industry partners and strength for our nation.

In June 2010, as an additional duty, President Obama appointed Mabus to prepare the long-term recovery plan for the Gulf of Mexico in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Mabus’ report was released in September 2010 and met with broad bi-partisan support with most recommendations passed into law by Congress as the Restore Act. Included in the legislation was a fund to aid in the Gulf Coast’s recovery by distributing 80 percent of any civil penalties awarded as a result of the damage caused by the disaster. To date, civil penalties total more than one billion dollars.

Before his appointment, Mabus held a variety of leadership positions. From 1988 to 1992, Mabus served as Governor of Mississippi, the youngest elected to that office in more than 150 years. Mabus was Ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from 1994-1996 and later was Chairman and CEO of a manufacturing company.

Mabus has been recognized for his leadership of the Navy and Marine Corps on multiple occasions. In 2013, he was named one of the top 50 highest rated CEOs by Glassdoor, an online jobs and career community. Mabus was the only leader of a federal agency to receive this award.

Secretary Mabus is a native of Ackerman, Mississippi, and received a Bachelor's Degree, summa cum laude, from the University of Mississippi, a Master's Degree from Johns Hopkins University, and a Law Degree, magna cum laude, from Harvard Law School. After Johns Hopkins, Mabus served in the Navy as an officer aboard the cruiser USS Little Rock.

Session 2

Intelligence Applications & Intelligence Led Decision-Making for Security Professionals


Erik de Vries, CPP, Director, DutchRisk, The Netherlands
Dick Oey, CPP, Board Member, European Security Intelligence Foundation, The Netherlands

While complexity of companies increases, management decisions cannot be based on a singular operational conclusion. Networked systems, Cybercrime and Social Media make it difficult to decide what’s important and challenging to develop an effective security strategy. Intelligence Led Security Decision-making provides a framework reducing uncertainty, answering these questions: 1. Do you know all you need to know before making a strategic decision? 2. … What you don’t know? 3. … Where to find what you need to know? 4. … What to do with the information once you find it? The presentation focuses on embedding intelligence in corporate security functions.

Session 3

Virtual Currencies: Safe for Business and Consumers or just for Criminals?


Erik R. Barnett, Attaché to the EU, Ice Homeland Security Investigations, Belgium

There is a significant risk of large-scale criminal use of crypto-currency because of a lack of critical industry-based checks against money laundering, absence of universal regulation, business models that feature decentralized administrations, and the lauded anonymity of internal crypto-currency transactions.

The use of crypto-currency in the sale of illegal narcotics as well as other illicit goods and to hide transactions that support criminal activity and possibly terrorist financing is challenging the ability of criminal investigators and financial regulators to combat transnational serious organized crime and international terrorism.

This presentation identifies four solutions that will aid in preventing virtual currencies from exploitation by transnational criminal or terrorist organizations. Concomitantly, these solutions would help enhance the trust and reliability of crypto-currencies as conduits of online commerce.

Erik Barnett is the Attaché to the European Union for ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the second largest federal law enforcement agency in the United States. Mr. Barnett’s responsibilities include policy and operational guidance on child exploitation, counter-proliferation, intellectual property theft enforcement, human rights violations and war crimes, narcotics trafficking, money laundering, and transnational criminal enterprises.

Mr. Barnett previously served as an Assistant Deputy Director of ICE, with specific responsibility for the Customs portfolio.

Prior to joining ICE, Mr. Barnett was a federal prosecutor for eight years with the U.S. Department of Justice, where he handled cases involving transnational crime, public corruption, and violent offenses among others. Mr. Barnett received a Director’s Award for Superior Performance as an Assistant U.S. Attorney.

In 2007, Mr. Barnett was appointed by the Deputy Attorney General of the United States to serve as a legislative fellow for the Judiciary Committee of the United States Senate. Mr. Barnett was subsequently appointed by the Assistant Attorney General as a Deputy Chief in the Department of Justice’s Criminal Division, working on international criminal matters.

From 1995 – 2002, Mr. Barnett was a state prosecutor and before his career as a prosecutor, he worked for two members of the United States House of Representatives.

From 2003 – 2008, Mr. Barnett was an adjunct professor at The George Washington University Law School and at Georgetown University’s law school from 2008 until 2011. Mr. Barnett graduated from California Western School of Law in 1993. He has taught college level courses on criminal justice matters since 2004.

His offices are a part of the U.S. Mission to the European Union.

Session 4

The True Cost Of Information Security Breaches - A Balanced View


Michael Krausz, Owner, i.s.c., Austria

The security industry tends to overstate breach or incidents costs while business functions usually underestimate direct and indirect cost. The talk addresses this discrepancy and helps CISOs and CSO to educate business functions and helps CFOs, COOs and CEOs with their understanding of unwanted or hidden consequences of a breach. The talk will also present a calculation model to estimate breach costs for use during incidents. All examples presented will be from real-life cases.

Mr. Michael Krausz studied Physics, Computer Science, and Law, is an ISO 27001 Lead Auditor and certified professional investigator.

Session 6

Identifying and Mitigating Bribery and Corruption Risks in Overseas Markets


Dr. Christoph Rojahn, Director (Forensics), Deloitte AG, Germany

The risk landscape for international business is changing. Whereas in the past, employee fraud was frequently very much the focus when it came to crime prevention and detection, complex regulatory regimes and increasing enforcement activities by state authorities mean that bribery and corruption expose companies to significant risks as evident from the very substantial fines imposed upon a number of multinationals. This presentation will look at ways in which corporate security can be utilized to prevent, identify and investigate bribery and corruption and contribute to overall risk mitigation.

Session 9

The Dark Web - the saviour of free expression or a criminal playground?


Peter Davies, Outgoing Chief Executive Officer, UK Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command, National Crime Agency, UK

Invented as a means of protecting freedom, the “Dark Web” - a managed network of private computers configured to minimise the risk of surveillance and capture - is now used heavily by the most technically proficient, serious organised criminals. It’s a preferred choice for transactions in paedophile material, guns, drugs and stolen information. It’s also, therefore, a major strategic threat to the protection of assets as well as society. Against the backdrop of Snowden, debates about access to communications data across the world, and new risks such as BYOD, the chances of tackling Dark Web activity seem slender and inversely proportionate to the threat.

As a challenge in identifying, understanding and managing risk, the Dark Web could be about as tough as it gets. How seriously should the security community take this, and what if any mitigations can be found? The answers may lie in our discussion.

For the last three years Peter Davies was Chief Executive Officer of CEOP, the UK’s Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre, and a Director of the UK’s National Crime Agency and its predecessor the Serious Organised Crime Agency. Prior to that, he gained wide experience as a chief police officer dealing with protective services in two police forces, and also had operational responsibility for tackling regional serious organised crime threats. He has led a wide variety of major, serious and organised crime enquiries at strategic level, and commanded critical incidents ranging from terrorist arrests to coastal flooding.

Curbing Small Weapons


Prof. Joris Voorhoeve, Professor of International Organisations, The Hague University of Applied Sciences and Leiden University, The Netherlands

Small and light weapons are, as a category, a weapon of mass destruction in slow but constant motion, with which every year on average 300,000 people are killed in war and civil war and 200,000 by crime and accidents. The new UN Weapons Treaty of 2013 is utterly deficient by not regulating these weapons and their munitions effectively. In this presentation I will present various requirements to make the treaty less ineffective.

Shrinking World; Expanding Risks – The Development of High Risk Travel Training


Paul Eddings, CPP, Head of Security Operations, Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (TAQA), UAE
Angela Osborne, Security Intelligence Analyst, Abu Dhabi National Energy Company, UAE

Most travel trainings offered in the market fall into two categories: low risk travel and very high risk travel, often called Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT). The problem is that neither fits for preparing a wide number of employees for potentially high risk travel. TAQA leveraged in-house capabilities to create a tailor-made program relevant to our risk exposure. From 2012 to 2013, the training became a recognisable safety measure for employees around the globe. The program provides security guidance, access to medical resources, and situational awareness techniques. It also offers a blueprint for security departments seeking to increase traveller safety.

Session 14

Cybercrime Is Huge and Getting Bigger - But Then Why Wouldn't It?


Martin Smith MBE, Chairman & Founder, The Security Company, UK

The market is moving online and the thieves are, of course, following. But the security industry remains rooted in the past, hanging on to traditional methods for protecting assets and sticking with known techniques for investigating loss. It must embrace the new technology, not shy away from it, and follow the criminal into his new patch - the cyberworld. The greatest danger we now face is our fear of change.

Martin Smith gained his degree in behavioural psychology before spending 15 years as a commissioned officer in the Royal Air Force, mainly assigned to counter-espionage and counter-terrorism duties.

Securing Security Adverse Organisations


Nicolas Le Saux, CPP, CEO, ATAO CONSULTING, France

How to overcome the cultural resistance of security-shy organisations and succeed in implementing cost effective security programs that actually work? Safety of their personnel and assets is important to NGOs, trade-unions or religious organisations alike; however, their ethos and culture make it too often hard for them to actually implement efficient security programs. This fast-paced presentation will take you from a shared, bought-in “as-is” diagnostic to the implementation journey to a “to-be” security target. Three case studies (a health-care NGO, a trade union and a church) will highlight this transformational journeys leveraging POA best practices mixed with change management techniques. Biogaphy: Nicolas Le Saux is a recognized expert in the security and safety field. His past experience includes a partnership at Accenture and several senior risk management positions.

Session 16

Applying Different Definitions of Deviant Behaviour in Your Concept of Operations


Jeroen van Rest Sr., Senior Consultant, TNO, Netherlands

Deviant behaviour is used to get specific early warning signs on security incidents in open compartments. There are multiple different definitions of deviant behaviour, which have different applications and consequences when used in the security domain. Several aspects will be covered, e.g. ethical, psychological (both behavioural and social) and statistical. This original research has been validated in the ERNCIP Surveillance working group, the EU KP7 TACTICS project, and in the Dutch national research program on Object Security. The purpose of this presentation is to educate the audience about using deviant behaviour in their concept of operations.

Session 18

Cyber Security - It's About the Human


Jonathan Nicholas, Information Security Officer, General Dynamics European Land Systems, Switzerland

Cyber Security is usually part of IT. Technicians manage sophisticated systems to stop intrusions and ensure that information and services are reliable and available to the right people. However, hackers are now using social engineering to infiltrate systems so cyber security needs to change. Modern Cyber Security professionals should be more like Security Officers. They need to check the perimiter (penetration tests) patrol the site (scan for vulnerabilities), enforce access control and monitor the assets. Most importantly, be visible and communicate with the users. This paper explains how focussing on the human can make you more secure.

Jonathan Nicholas worked many years ago in physical security operations, access control and fire protection for the UK company Thorn EMI in London and Hong Kong. He then moved to IT and in the late 1990s was one of the founders of an Internet Service Provider in Geneva, Switzerland. He became more involved in IT Security and worked for the consultants Cap Gemini on a banking project in Zürich. He became CISSP certified and is now the CISO for General Dynamics European Land Systems based in Kreuzlingen. But he has nor forgotten his roots in security operations.

Session 19

Internal Investigations in an International Environment


Oliver C. Fein, Executive, Major German Technology Company / Chapter 251 Germany

The presentation is based on a close examination of running internal investigation cases internationally. The traditional internal investigation is focused rather on local petty crime instead of fraud and corruption in an international arena. This presentation is aiming on the international aspects of internal investigations, and points out how to master the discipline of interviewing/interrogation. This is the best example for revealing the necessary soft skills and emphasizing challenges in investigative tasks. Since most pitfalls and complications are avoidable with an improved awareness for cultures, legal systems and compliance policies, it is worthwhile to have a look from that angle.

The Rise of Sectarianism Throughout the Middle East


Tim Williams, Managing Director, Stirling Assynt, UK

The availability of funds and recruits to jihadist groups has increased as a result of the West’s decision not to intervene in the conflict in Syria in response to the widely reported usage of chemical weapons in eastern Damascus in August.

Session 27

Counter Surveillance and Red Teaming as a Protective Intelligence Tool


Berndt Rif, CPP, Senior Policy Advisor Security Operations, De Nederlandsche bank NV, The Netherlands

The use of counter surveillance teams and red teams, as part of a pro-active security cycle, is a threat-based security approach. The goal of a red team is a to find methods of attack used by adversaries. The red team also needs to test the effectiveness of taken security measures against adversaries’ methods of attack (AMO) that have been identified. The attack of the red team can take place on the physical gate, the personnel gate (insider threat) and the logical gate. The goal of counter surveillance is to discover criminal activities in an early stage of the attack cycle.

Berndt Rif, CPP, worked as high risk flight agent and profile agent at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. He was also head of the security department at the Academic Medical Center in Amsterdam.

Session 29

New Directions In Urban Security


Thomas Vonier, CPP, Architect and Planner, Thomas Vonier Architect LLC, France

Security-conscious design increases the effectiveness of policing and surveillance. Visible security signals changing threats and focuses vigilance. Protective infrastructure is essential. Many threats to urban security are difficult to predict (extreme weather and industrial accidents), or may arise spontaneously (riots and civil disorder). Some never cross borders (indigenous extremists). Such threats cannot be detected or thwarted easily using police and intelligence methods. Security at the urban level is an essential and sometimes last line of defense. Effective urban security is multifunctional, nimble, and ever-present. Some cities have used natural checkpoints and created special control zones.

Working from Paris and Washington DC, architect Thomas Vonier FAIA RIBA CPP supports organizations with global operations. He is a board-certified security professional. His practice concentrates on security planning for projects in high-threat regions of Africa, the former Soviet Union, and the Middle East.

The Profile of the Security Liaison Officer: Discerning the Skills, Roles and Responsibilities for an Emerging Position within Critical Infrastructure Protection


Professor Roberto Setola, Professor, Complex System & Security lab University UCBM,Italy
Alessandro Lega, CPP, ASIS International Chapter Italy

EU policies regarding the protection of ECI’s is based on strong cooperation between the Public and Private sectors. From the Private side, the SLO must operate as a single and effective interface with the Public Authorities. Currently, there is a lack of attention and regulation regarding the SLO position which has created a void in the EU’s understanding of their impact. Through Questionnaires and Café Workshops, the EU co-funded project “SLO” aims to close the gap to better define such professional figures so the ECI community can ‘connect-the-dots’ and come to a suitable solution to reduce the disparity between expectation and action of the SLO on the personal, private and public levels.

The Ultimate Challenge: Decision-Making in Crisis Scenarios


David Rubens, Managing Director, InfraSafe Security International (ISI), UK

It is often said that you can’t prepare for a disaster. Although that is true, the reasons for the failure to respond effectively to disasters are depressingly predictable, and are seen to repeat themselves time after time. This presentation examines some of the issue around decision-making in crisis scenarios, and offers a out a template that will allow decision-makers to audit their own organisation’s crisis management capabilities, as well as enabling them to identify their own vulnerabilities.

Dealing With Cross Cultural Challenges of International Contracts


Henk Kamman, CPP, Security Risk Manager, KaHaDe BV, The Netherlands
Nita Korsten, Senior Consultant/Director, Crust Young Consultants, USA

Both clients and contractors seek uniformity in their global contracts. However, global contracts and local realities aren’t always as aligned as parties might wish. Not only can the local rules and regulations for security vary across countries and regions, but different local cultures can add even more challenges! In this lively workshop we will share the experiences of an international contract manager of security/guarding services and provide a framework for understanding practical contracting challenges from a cross cultural perspective. We will discuss international security assignments and the impact of cultural differences on communication, risk management and rules and regulation.

Session 43

Counter-Espionage: The Importance of Engaging the C-Suite


Emma Shaw, Managing Director, Esoteric, UK

Organisations are failing to grasp the enormity of corporate espionage and decisions on how to respond to attacks are often made retrospectively. Whilst it can be difficult to quantify the impact, when organisations lose control of their information, implications can be serious. Consideration of espionage should be an integral part of risk management and business strategy and can only be achieved with C-Suite engagement. A strategic approach will consider the wider implications of attacks and how they affect the whole business resulting in solutions which deliver an integrated way of thinking that combines all aspects of security with financial pragmatism.

Emma Shaw is the Managing Director of Esoteric Ltd, a well-established electronic sweeping, counter-espionage and intelligence gathering company based in Woking, Surrey. An MBA graduate, and a Chartered Security Professional (CSyP) Emma’s early career was spent with the Royal Military Police, followed by a career in the Ministry of Defence.
