a1Victim of 2009 Jakarta Marriott Bombing to Keynote at ASIS Asia Pacific 2012

   

Max Boon, a victim of the 2009 Marriott Jakarta terrorist bomb attack, will be the closing keynote speaker at the ASIS 6th Asia-Pacific Security Forum & Exhibition.

 

In July 2009, the JW Marriott and Ritz-Carlton Hotels were hit by separate bombings.The blasts were caused by suicide bombers, killing seven and injuring more than 50 people. Mr. Boon was a victim of the attacks where he lost both his legs.

 

Since his recovery, Mr. Boon, an Associate Fellow of the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism (ICCT), is working on the ICCT's Victims' Voices Project. The project has been created following the growing realisation; among policymakers, that counter-terrorism efforts should include the stories of victims of terrorism as well. It is the first big international effort that attempts to actively and structurally involve victims' voices in efforts to prevent and counter violent extremism.

 

The project started in July 2012 in Indonesia. It recognises that telling the stories of victims of terrorism in a constructive and positive way could be of crucial importance in the further prevention of radicalisation and de-radicalisation efforts. It could also help in the successful rehabilitation and reintegration of convicted terrorists into society.

 

As a keynote speaker Max Boon will speak about Victims' Voices and Their Potential in Countering Violent Extremism.

a4Chapter News: ASIS Italy Chapter - "Executive Head Hunting & Security" Event in Milan and Chapter News

 

 Left: Head Of Milan Police Deparment - Center: President Cantournet

Right: General Commander in Chief of North Italy Carabinieri Military Police

 

A challenging wind of change and new young energy were clear, visible and palpable after a few weeks of work of the new elected (June 2012) Board of Members of the ASIS Italy Chapter.

 

A 30% increase in terms of members in just 4 months of activity, hard involvement and efforts are solid tangible results reached thanks to a great team work of tight-knit keen professionals, the strict coordination between the new President, Genseric Cantournet, the young VP & General Secretary, Luigi Romano and all the other Members of the Board (Gianna Detoni, Marco Bavazzano, Roberto De Sortis, Alessandro Lega, Remo Pincelli, Roger Warwick and the past President, Alberto Limone).

 

A new communication plan (via Linkedin, Twitter and massive emails) has been adopted and new stimulating contents and topics have been chosen to raise the attention of and reach new potential members.

 

New sponsors have been selected to promote events and evening cocktails, business lunches and meetings.

 

The first drive test of all this hard team work has been the event "Executive Head Hunting & Security: competence and market" that took place on 14 November 2012 in the unique and exclusive Restaurant "Il Marchesino", alongside of "La Scala" Theatre in Milan.

 

A great and expected success!

55 security professionals (all CSO, CISO, Security Managers and Consultants of Top 100 WW well known corporations) were sitting and eating at the same table with Partners of the world's largest Executive Search Firms, HR Directors and Managers of very important famous Brands.

 

Security, Head Hunters, HR and good food: a new enthusiastic winning team!

 

And we had the pleasure to have as Honored Guests the General Commander in Chief of North Italy Carabinieri Military Police, and both the Head of Carabinieri and Police of Milan City, even though there were many emergencies and troubles due to social disorders in these critical days.

 

We will bet our boots that in the next months and years the ASIS Italy Chapter will be one of the most active and widely admired Chapters of ASIS International!

a6Cyber Europe 2012 - First Results Show Success

ENISA's initial findings from Europe's biggest ever cyber security test show that the exercise was a success.

 

Cyber Europe 2012 was a day-long simulated cyber attack on Europe's critical information infrastructures. It was used to analyse how participating countries' and private sector organisations would cooperate in the event of a real large-scale attack.

 

ENISA's headline observations from the "hot wash" exercise review session are:

  • There was frequent cooperation and information exchange between public and private sector organisations
  • Public-Private cooperation structure differed per country
  • Some countries responded by upscaling their national crisis cells/crisis plans/crisis structures
  • Some countries suffered from real incidents besides the CE2012 exercise
  • Familiarity with procedures is crucial for building a fast and effective response capability across Europe
  •  There is a need for close understanding between players and a need to be able to communicate quickly with key contacts in national authorities and the private sector
  • The inclusion of private sector organisations as players was an excellent addition. Their input and experience helped build realistic scenarios and make exercise highly effective on the day. (Most Critical Information Infrastructure is owned by the private sector.)  Overall, there were approx. 60 banks and 60 ISPs taking part in the various countries. 
  • Simulations were highly realistic. Players were under pressure so as to assess how this would affect cooperation  
  • Conclusions from the exercise will be considered by the European Commission and Member States in drafting Europe's Cyber Security Strategy
  • ENISA plans to produce its Cyber Europe 2012 exercise report by the end of the year

a8Kroes' Staff Computers Hacked in Baku

The staff of Neelie Kroes, the EU Commissioner for the Digital Agenda, fell victim to computer hacking during an internet security conference in Azerbaijan.

 

The attack took place during the meeting of the Internet Governance Forum in Baku, the Azerbaijani capital.

 

It came as Kroes finalises a new cyber security policy paper which the European Commission aims to publish next month.

 

Kroes spokesman Ryan Heath said the attack occurred while they were in their hotel.

 

Heath said he and a colleague received computer messages warning them that their computers had been accessed by an unknown device, something he said he believed was an attempt to spy on him.

 

The attack was made on a personal computer "that had only my photos and Kroes' statements on it, since the hard drive was recently wiped clear for a repair," Heath said.

a10The Anatomy of National and International Cyber Security Exercises; New Report by the EU Cyber-Security Agency ENISA

In its new report, the EU's 'cyber-security agency' ENISA (the European Network and Information Security Agency) examines 85 national and international cyber-exercises between 2002 and 2012. The report issues seven recommendations.

 

Information on national and multinational cyber-exercises was gathered worldwide and analysed in this report. A total of 22 European countries were conducting national cyber-security exercises during the last years.

 

The seven key recommendations of the report are:

  1. Establish a more integrated global cyber exercise community;
  2. Ensure exchange of good practices on cyber-exercises, including public-private cooperation;
  3. Support development of exercise management tools for better exercise planning, execution and evaluation;
  4. Conduct more complex cyber-exercises at inter-sectorial, international and European levels;
  5. Exercises should be included in the lifecycle of national cyber crisis contingency plans;
  6. Promote the good practices for national exercises, and initiate a step-by-step methodology for  cross-border cyber-exercises;
  7. Develop feedback mechanisms for ensuring that lessons learned from cyber-exercises

The Executive Director of ENISA, Professor Udo Helmbrecht, remarked: "The ENISA study shows that a broad consensus exists for cyber-exercises being an essential instrument to assess the preparedness of a community against cyber crises, and to enhance the responsiveness of stakeholders against critical information infrastructure incidents. Based on the report results we will see a growing number of multinational exercises, like our recent Cyber Europe 2012, involving also the private sector."

a11Blasts Blamed on Terrorists Disrupt Gas Flow in Turkey

At least three explosions severed Turkish pipelines carrying natural gas from Iran and Azerbaijan, media reported on 19 October. Turkey is seen as a key transit country for supplying Europe.

 

Agri Governor Mehmet Tekinarslan described it as a terrorist attack targeted at the gas pipeline. The Governor said that 28 soldiers were wounded, one seriously.

 

The incident is the latest in a series of explosions that hit gas pipelines in Turkey this month. On 8 October, Turkish authorities blamed the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) separatist group for a blast on a pipeline in Turkey's southeast that halted the Iranian gas flow to the region.

 

That happened four days after an unexplained explosion on another pipeline halted the flow of Azerbaijani natural gas to Turkey via the Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum pipeline.

a12Is e-Data the New Currency? New ENISA Report Looks at Privacy and Tracking

Internet users are increasingly tracked and profiled, with personal data being treated as currency in exchange for services. A gap exists between the legal requirements for personal data protection and the practice in the online environment.

 

The proposal for a Regulation on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, aims to address these challenges from a legal perspective. The ENISA study provides a technical aspect on behavioural tracking, identifying the need for an interdisciplinary approach to address the privacy risks associated with tracking mechanisms.

 

Risks from tracking include global surveillance by governments and companies; service and price discrimination; and personalisation risks from data filtering. Protective measures are focused at a technological, legislative and educational level.

 

ENISA's recommendations are addressed to regulators, policy stakeholders, researchers and developers. These proposals include: anti-tracking initiatives and solutions for mobile applications; development of easy-to-use tools for transparency and control; enforcement of compliance with rules and regulations on personal data protection monitoring and detecting violations; and promoting privacy-by-design to ensure meaningful privacy policies.

a13EU Set to Step Up Efforts to Counter Natural Disasters

A Senior Commission official says that the EU should be "better equipped" to deal with future natural disasters in Europe and elsewhere.

Speaking in Brussels, Florika Fink Hooijer, of the Commission's Humanitarian Aid Directorate, said Europe needed to be ready to protect itself not just against floods and earthquakes but "other issues" such as space and solar debris.

She went on to say that she expects that improved preparedness for such events will be provided by an upcoming Commission proposal for a new 'civil protection mechanism.'

The mechanism was set up in 2001 to oversee EU-wide prevention and response to natural disasters, such as floods and earthquakes.

All EU Member States, plus Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Croatia, take part.

Addressing an international conference on 22 October, Fink Hooijer said the initiative had been a "success story", adding, "I am convinced that European cooperation makes a difference, especially in large-scale disasters."

She said that participating countries in the EU mechanism
"can deliver a more effective response than they can provide by working alone".

a14Radicalisation 'Poses Bigger Threat' to Society Than Terrorism

A parliamentary debate on 13 November has heard that there is mounting evidence that places of education throughout Europe are being targeted by religious 'radicals'.

The event was told that "young minds" were being "moulded and radicalised" in schools and universities.

Swedish Liberal Olle Schmidt, who hosted the discussion said, "This is a serious problem that threatens our democratic values."

The MEP told the event, "This is especially true in my home town Malmö where we have seen an increased radicalisation among ethnic, religious and political groups. As politicians we have a responsibility to act. We must set up a toolbox for schools, social services and the police, we have to address the lack of living space in some neighbourhoods, and most of all we have to inform the public of this growing problem."

He said that across Europe "we have seen examples of individuals and groups who have been radicalised and resort to violence".

He said it was especially important to address the issue in schools and universities "as these are the exactly the public institutions in which the youth of Europe develop their knowledge, views and opinions".
