ASIS International Announces Saudi Aramco to Sponsor the 2nd Middle East Security Conference & Exhibition

ASIS International is pleased to announce Saudi Aramco, the state-owned oil company of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, will be the Diamond sponsor of the 2nd ASIS International Middle East Security Conference & Exhibition, which is set for 20-22 February 2011 in Manama, Bahrain. This marks the second, consecutive year of sponsorship for the company.

ASIS International President Raymond T. O'Hara, CPP, said. “We are extremely pleased with the continued support of Saudi Aramco, one of the leading companies in the Middle East. Their support is an important added value to the educational offerings of ASIS International in the region.”

Talking on the conference Bader Al-Qadran, General Manager, Industrial Security Operations of Saudi Aramco said: “Saudi Aramco security employees have been associated with ASIS International for more than three decades and it has helped in providing training and development of security professionals in the Company. Participation in ASIS has helped security professionals in the Company to interact with their counterparts from other major companies and broaden their knowledge on latest security systems and technologies. Several employees have used the learning opportunities available with ASIS and have become Certified Protection Professionals (CPP), Physical Security Professionals (PSP) and Professional Certified Investigators (PCI), all of which has helped them enhance their productivity, job knowledge, and career advancement.”

This support from Saudi Aramco is reinforced by the presence of Mr. Abdulaziz F. Al-Khayyal, senior vice president, Industrial Relations, as a keynote speaker and of Mr. John Knight, CPP, security consultant, as a breakout speaker.

London 2012 Olympics to Have Airport-Style Security                     

Sports fans attending the London 2012 Olympics can expect airport-style security screening at venues, the policeman in charge of safety at the Games said on 13 January.

Met Assistant Commissioner Chris Allison, Olympic security coordinator, said there were no plans to draw on the military, beyond certain niche demands, despite severe spending cuts across the nation's police forces.

Private security firms will use X-ray machines and carry out searches "much like you would see at an airport," Allison said.

"As you get to the venues clearly you will have to go through a search and secure regime," he told reporters.

"It will look like you would expect. Sadly, as a society we've been having to do deal with the impact of terrorism for many years," he said.

Greek Police Trace EU 'Carbon Thieves' in Romania                        


The theft of pollution permits that forced the closure of the spot market in EU emissions permits on 19 January may have originated in Romania, a Greek police official said on 29 January.

Police identified between eight and 10 Internet protocol addresses which hackers used to attack Greece's national registry for carbon trading rights, said the official, who declined to be named.

"We have located the addresses in Romania. Interpol has been notified," the official said.

The spot market for EU emissions permits was closed after allowances worth up to 30 million euros were stolen from the national registries of several European countries.

Renault Spy Scandal: China Denies Involvement                             

BBC reported that China has denied any involvement in an industrial espionage scandal involving French car maker Renault and alleged leaking of electric car technology.

The scandal has rocked France, with a legislator saying that there were indications of Chinese involvement. But Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hong Lei said the claims were irresponsible and unacceptable.

He said the Government had seen the reports but found they were groundless.

French politician Bernard Carayon, an expert on industrial espionage, said "proven, diverse and reliable" sources pointed to an effort to obtain secrets from three Renault executives who were suspended by the carmaker.

EU Intelligence Services Opening Up to Collaboration                    

EU Member States' intelligence services are among the most jealously-guarded national assets despite five decades of integration. But two European Commission-sponsored projects on open source intelligence (Osint) are beginning to change the culture of mistrust.
Launched quietly in the Hungarian capital by the Commission and the Hungarian Foreign Ministry in 2007, the Budapest Club has in the past three and a half years held eight meetings of EU countries' intelligence officers and private sector experts in Budapest, Bucharest, Rome and Brussels.

The first event had just 50-or-so delegates. But the last meeting, in Brussels in mid-2010, attracted over 150 specialists from 14 EU countries from both the 'old' and 'new' halves of the Union.

The Budapest mission statement says: "The main idea behind the initiative is to enhance sharing of ideas and open source information between EU Institutions and Member States in order to support crisis prevention and crisis management services."

US Anti-Twitter Subpoena Fuels Data Privacy Debate                     

A court order potentially giving US security services access to data on all 637,000 people who follow the WikiLeaks Twitter account has added fuel to the fire of an EU debate on data retention.

The online short-message service Twitter on 7 January announced it won a legal battle to disclose that the US has issued a court order seeking private information on WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, his alleged source for the classified US documents, Bradley Manning and three of his supporters - Icelandic MP Birgitta Jonsdottir, Dutch hacker Rop Gonggrijp and US programmer Jacob Appelbaum.

The US subpoena also requires the disclosure of "non-content information associated with any communication or file stored by or for the accounts, such as the source and the destination e-mail addresses and IP addresses." In short, this means that all the 637,000 Twitter users following the WikiLeaks account may be a potential target.

Commission Under Budget 'Pressure' as Natural Disasters Spike

A dramatic increase in the number of natural disasters last year has sparked calls for more funding, cooperation and cost-efficiency from European Commission services.

A report by Munich Re, one of the world's largest insurance firms, says that 2010 saw 950 natural disasters - the second highest number since 1980 - and 295,000 people died as a result.

Ferran Tarradellas, spokesman for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis Response Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva, highlighted the role that greater Member State coordination with the Commission and crisis prevention more generally could play in saving lives – and money.

"For instance," he said, "if we had known before the [Pakistan flood] disaster hit who had heavy pumping equipment, who had water purification systems, how many, where, and how fast they could be deployed, our response could have been even faster".

"It's good to have better contingency plans for every kind of possible disaster. This is normally a member-state competence but if we share this information and coordinate exercises and make contingency plans, we can know which disasters we can respond to with what we have and where there are gaps that need to be filled."

MEP Calls for Impact Assessment of EU Counter-Terrorism Policies

Costly high-tech surveillance and data gathering programmes put in place all over the EU for counter-terrorism purposes have never been thoroughly evaluated in terms of effectiveness and proportionality, one leading MEP has said, just as in neighbouring Russia, an alleged suicide bomber has claimed dozens of lives in Moscow's international airport.

Russian officials on 24 January were quick in labelling the deadly blast at the Domodedovo airport as the work of "terrorists", with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev vowing to track down the culprits and ordering increased security in all airports.

According to local media, more than 30 people have died and over 100 were injured when an "almighty explosion" rocked the baggage claim area in the arrivals hall.

EU Parliament Set to Sign Off Police College Accounts                   

Parliament has taken a step closer signing off the accounts of the controversial European Police College (CEPOL) after receiving assurances that its finances are now "on track."

MEPs had refused to sign off accounts for the UK-based college for over a year amid a growing scandal over the "private use of public funds".

Deputies said they were concerned that misuse of funding could be "higher" than previously thought at the EU agency, which has been hosted at the famous British police training college in Bramshill since 2005. It trains police officers in the latest crime-busting techniques.

EU anti-fraud investigators, Olaf, were called in after CEPOL admitted to using funding to buy staff furniture, mobile phones and to pay for a free car service.

However, in the latest development, Parliament's budgetary control committee, which had blocked "discharge" of CEPOL's accounts, was given assurances from the Commission's internal audit office that the agency's accounts are now "on track."

EU to Collect Data of International Air Travellers                               

Air travellers going in and out of the EU may soon have to give their personal details to national authorities in the Member State of departure or arrival, if proposals set to be put forward by the EU Commission on 2 February are approved by Governments and the European Parliament.

Under the proposal, all passengers flying for instance from Brussels to Istanbul will have their "Passenger Name Record" (PNR) data – including home address, mobile phone number, credit card information and email address – checked by a special unit of the Belgian police. Any suspected links with terrorism or serious crime – such as drug trafficking or people smuggling – will be shared with other Member States and the suspects may be prevented from flying or even arrested.

Intra-EU flights, from Rome to Athens or Tallinn to Warsaw, will not be covered for now, but the Commission is likely to propose that such a step may be taken into consideration in a few years' time, if Member States so require. This may clash with British desires – especially given the Olympic Games to be hosted in London in 2012 – to have an EU-wide system covering flights from one Member State to another as well.

UK Decides to Opt In to EU-Wide Cyber Security Plan                     

The UK is to opt in to a European Union Directive to tackle the "real and growing" threat posed by cyber crime, BBC reported.

Home Office Minister James Brokenshire told MPs the Directive was still "not perfect" but said international action was needed to tackle online crime.

By opting in, he said the "reach of UK law enforcement officers" would be able to extend beyond UK borders.

But Conservative MP Bill Cash, Chairman of the European scrutiny committee, said he was "gravely concerned" by the decision to announce an opt-in without his committee being given notice.
