Certification Profile: Per Lundkvist, CPP, PSP, PCI                                     

Per Lundkvist, CPP, PSP, PCI, is the Chief Risk and Security Officer at Svenska Spel. In addition to leading the group security and risk management department at the largest gaming company in Sweden, he is a winner of the 2009 Reach Out competition to promote membership growth. Lundkvist is responsible for bringing on 17 new ASIS members. What’s the secret to his success? “The tips I would share in recruiting is to always inform about ASIS to all the people you deal with in security, in meetings with security professionals in your daily work, let them know what it is and bring them to a chapter meeting,” Lundkvist says. “As a senior security professional, invite your deputies and directors, managers to also become members. ASIS is not only for the most senior level.”

Lundkvist has been at the state-owned Svenska Spel (“Swedish Games”), headquartered in Visby, for four years. His department has 13 full-time employees that
report to him; he reports to the Chief Financial Officer. “Overall,” he says, “we have about 100 full-time people who work in security and surveillance in the Svenska Spel group, including Casino Cosmopol,” a subsidiary that operates four international casinos throughout Sweden. Before Svenska Spel, Lundkvist worked as Head of Security for the logistics division in Europe North at DHL for six years. His 20 years of security experience also includes stints working with security system dealers and in central station alarm monitoring.

Lundkvist is a proponent of security management as a career choice, calling it a “very interesting and multi-faceted profession.” Still, he says, “I would hope that more countries will provide university-level education in this field. In Sweden we are still lacking a relevant university program in security management; however, we have a working group in the Swedish chapter that is in discussions with a couple of universities. Hopefully this becomes a reality in a few years.”

A member of the Swedish chapter since 2002, Lundkvist credits ASIS with the opportunity to meet and get to know a lot of people in the security industry, not only in Sweden, but also internationally. “An extensive network is essential for a senior security manager, as well as the excellent educational opportunities ASIS provides in the conferences as well as the certification programs,” he says. “For that same reason, I have volunteered as chapter officer, vice chairman in Sweden and now RVP. I think I owe that to the organisation, as it helped me a lot when I first joined and was new in the corporate security role.”

Lundkvist is one of four members in Europe who holds all three ASIS certifications (and one of 40 worldwide). But he didn’t stop there. “I am also a Certified Fraud Examiner (ACFE), Certified Information Security Manager (ISACA), Certified Protection Officer Instructor (IPFO) and an ISO 27001 Lead Auditor (BSI),” he says. “Of course, all the studying prior to taking the exams has given me a lot of knowledge in the different aspects of security and hands-on ideas how to work with them.”

Ministers Criticise Justice and Home Affairs Plan                                        

Interior Ministers on 3 June criticised the European Commission for its handling of the Stockholm Programme, the Union's five-year action plan for justice and home affairs.

The Ministers, meeting in Luxembourg, merely “took note” of the Commission's plan to implement the programme, whereas in previous years they formally adopted the plan.

“Some of the actions proposed by the Commission are not in line with the Stockholm Programme,” they wrote in their conclusions, while parts of the programme were left out of the action plan.

A spokesperson for Cecilia Malmström, the European Commissioner for Home Affairs, said: “Both the spirit and the wording of the Stockholm Programme in the field of home affairs are clearly reflected in the action plan.”

Austrian Chapter News: Meeting Report on the 3rd Annual Meeting of Chapter 107                                                    


Dr. Christoph Rojahn, RVP, Region 28 (right) and Mr. Slauf (proprietor of Messrs INNOTRONIC)

By Werner Preining, Chapter Chairman

The meeting took place upon invitation of Messrs. INNOTRONIC Sicherheitstechnik und Sonderelektronik GmbH at their premises in the 16th district of Vienna.

Unfortunately, at the last moment several members sent apologises. We were a total of 10 persons. 6 Members and 4 guests.

Shortly after 18 hours, the Chapter Chairman and Mr. Slauf, proprietor of Messrs INNOTRONIC and our host for this evening, welcomed the attendees.

Before the start of the meeting Werner Preining distributed to all members and guests the information material received from the ASIS European office in Brussels like the “postcard-type call for papers” for both the Bahrain and the Vienna 2011 conferences, as well as the flyers for an exclusive sponsorship and exhibit opportunities for both locations.

We had the honor to accommodate Dr. Christoph Rojahn, our Regional Vice President, as our guest this evening. His flying to Vienna had the purpose to strengthen the internal ASIS structure. He gave a short welcome and a brief overview about ASIS in general and our region in particular, together with some remarks, including the next years ASIS European Conference in Vienna.

Stefan Berlin, our Chapter Secretary and Committee Chair for the CPP program, gave a quick status report. He has established a CPP-study-group that meets regularly in 3 to 4 week intervals. All interested persons are invited to join.

Werner Preining outlined next years ASIS European Spring Conference in Vienna and suggested that our valuable member Michael Krausz becomes the Committee Chair for this event. Mr. Kraus (with his prior consent) was appointed in absence as the Conference Chair for the ASIS European Spring Conference.

ASIS International Publishes Revised Private Security Officer Guideline

ASIS International has released its revised Private Security Officer Selection and Training Guideline, which provides recommended minimum selection and training qualifications to improve the performance of private security officers and the quality of security services.

“Committee members realised there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to officer selection and training,” said Bernard D. Greenawalt, CPP, Vice President, Securitas Security Services USA Inc., and Chairman of the PSO Guideline Committee. “Not every company’s security requirements are the same and criteria vary from State to sState. This revised guideline offers companies the flexibility to implement the strategies that meet their specific business and security needs.”

The guideline supersedes the first edition published in 2004 and is designated ASIS GDL PSO-2010. It provides the framework for private security officer job descriptions and recommended minimum selection criteria, as well as an outline for the design and delivery of private security officer training by employers and other agencies.

Click here to purchase a copy of the revised Private Security Officer Selection and Training Guideline. All ASIS Standards and Guidelines are available for sale through the ASIS website, www.asisonline.org.

The work of preparing ASIS Standards and Guidelines is carried out through the ASIS International Standards and Guidelines Commission and its committees. ASIS International is an American National Standards Institute accredited Standards Development Organisation and actively participates in the International Organisation for Standardisation, developing standards and guidelines within a voluntary, non-proprietary and consensus-based process, utilising the knowledge, experience and expertise of ASIS membership, security professionals and the global security industry.

MEPs Threaten Second Veto on EU-US Bank Data Deal                           

Social Democrats, Greens and Liberals in the European Parliament on 15 June expressed their dissatisfaction at the newly negotiated EU-US bank data transfer deal for combating terrorism, threatening to veto it again after having rejected an earlier version in February.

"We regret that the European Commission seems to have already closed the negotiations on a draft agreement that is far from being approvable," Martin Schulz, the leader of the Socialist group said in a press statement.

Earlier that day, the EU executive gave the green light to a draft agreement with the US negotiated by Home Affairs chief Cecilia Malmstrom. The text still needs approval of Member States and the "consent" of the European Parliament.

Concern Over Latest Robbery at EU Parliament                                          

Security in Parliament has been described as "pretty lax" following the latest robbery.

The robbery happened on 28 May afternoon when a female cashier was taking money from Parliament's main canteen on the ground floor of the Spinelli building in Brussels.

The woman, who has not been named, was approached by a masked man who ordered her to hand over two cash boxes.

When a witness tried to intervene, the robber is thought to have produced what is described as "something resembling a weapon".

He fled with the cash and despite an immediate "shut down" of Parliament by the security services, managed to escape.

ASIS Announces 2010 Student Writing Competition                                  

The ASIS Council on Academic Programs in Colleges and Universities and the ASIS Foundation are calling for entries for the 2010 ASIS International Student Writing Competition. The writing competition rewards college and university students who conduct research, engage in thoughtful deliberation and write an academic paper between 3,000 and 6,000 words on an issue relevant to the security and assets protection profession.

“The objective of this competition is to encourage critical thinking to help make our world a safer and more secure place to live, work, govern and conduct business,” says Kevin Peterson, CPP, coordinator of the Student Writing Competition and a member of the ASIS Council on Academic Programs in Colleges and Universities. “The 2009 competition drew more than two dozen entries from students around the world. In 2010, we look forward to both expanding the reach of the program and to bringing forth valuable new insights and best practices to meet the challenges faced by security practitioners today and in the years to come.”

Students may select one of five topics for their paper. Topics include the most promising technologies to meet tomorrow’s security challenges; improving security’s image; protecting information and intangible assets in the 21st century; leveraging low-cost/low-tech solutions for contemporary security challenges; and the challenge of securing cyberspace: man or machine? Click here to view an expanded description of the topics.

The competition is open to any student, full or part-time, studying at an accredited institution pursuing an associate, bachelor or master’s degree. Cash prizes include $1,500 for the graduate winner; $1,000 for the undergrad winner; and $500 to honorable mention winners. Each winner also receives complimentary registration to one of ASIS’ annual events—the Annual Seminar and Exhibits (to be held in Dallas, Oct. 12-15), the ASIS European Conference, the ASIS Asia/Pacific Conference or the ASIS Middle East Conference.

Prediction Software Helps in Disaster Control                                             

EU-funded scientists have developed new statistical methods and software to help generate information on pollution and environmental threats. The system compliments existing European-based air quality monitoring stations, which are effective but costly to set up. The INTAMAP ('Interoperability and automated mapping') project was funded EUR 1.86 million under the 'Information society technologies' (IST) Thematic area of the EU's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6).

Air pollution monitors are used across Europe to generate information on nuclear and chemical spills, groundwater pollution, traffic fumes and other environmental issues, but their expense hinders mass installation. Data generated at the relatively few location monitoring points is, nevertheless, fundamental to the subsequent decisions made by authorities on the right way of dealing with these problems.

Another disadvantage is that they provide considerable information about pollution in their immediate surrounds, but little about the status of conditions beyond their vicinity. In the event of a nuclear accident, for instance, one monitoring station might report high levels of radioactivity but another, 30 kilometres away, might report significantly lower levels. In the case of a major environmental crisis, authorities would need to decide if an evacuation is necessary and, if so, to select the most appropriate place to which the population should be taken.

Preparing for Extremism in Europe’s Built Environments – a White Paper        

By: Chris Tomlinson BSc (Hons) MSc – Principal Consultant at Arup Security Consulting

The downturn in world’s economies will certainly mean the coming decade is likely to see more civil unrest in Europe as the financially vulnerable are made more uncertain by the effects of what is predicted to be a prolonged recession, and it is estimated that frustration and malicious subversion will drive violent direct action.

Recent examples of serious street disorder in Greece and other European capitals have highlighted the fact that while terrorism remains a relatively infrequent but extreme impact threat; it seems that high impact events in European cities arising out of violent demonstrations are the clear security threat for the next decade.

In an Arup Security and Resilience White Paper Chris Tomlinson discusses why and how European commercial organisations must and can do more to prepare for the effects of disruptive extremism. Chris emphasises the need to understand the developing threats from domestic extremists and how this knowledge should drive security preparedness and resilience in Europe’s built environments.

Danish Chapter News: Lessons from COP15                                               

If your assignment was to prepare 6,000 police officers for an international meeting of the stature of United Nations Climate Change Conference 2009 (COP15), what do you think your biggest challenge would be? “Lessons from COP15 and the ‘Human Factor’” was the subject of the Danish chapter meeting of 10 June 2010.

For Jesper Bangsgaard, Director of Education for the Copenhagen Police, the biggest challenge was leveling the wide range of competencies and experiences of the individual officers. For example, officers from areas with small populations usually had little experience with crowd control and demonstrations. Since one of the primary tasks during the preparation was to remove 100 demonstrators in 10 minutes and 300 in an hour, this was a significant issue. As Aeke Iwar, psychologist, noted from studying soldiers in various wars, 70% will do as rehearsed, 20% will be apathetic and 10% will panic – the key is to understand how people function and to prepare them accordingly.

The prepared officers were put to the test during COP15 – during one large demonstration on 11 December 2009, where 997 persons were arrested. Bangsgaard is in the process of integrating many of the lessons learnt into the police education as part of the current police reforms. As Nikolaj Hyll, FORCE Technology, pointed out, it is very human for individuals to focus on our failures instead of what we did well – one way for organisations to overcome this is to systematically collect, record and learn from the positive lessons. Hyll quoted the Dalai Lama “If you lose, Do not lose the lesson.”

UN Anti-Terror Expert Warns Against 'Overly Tough' Immigration Policies

Jean-Paul Laborde told TheParliament.com that a crackdown on immigration risked leading to an increase in "violent extremism".

Laborbe, the head of the UN counter-terrorism implementation task force, was responding to questions about the likelihood of the party led by anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders doubling its seats before the Dutch elections.

The party has campaigned on a ticket of ending the "Islamic invasion" and its manifesto proposes an immigration cut.

However, Laborbe, a former French judge, warned against any move, in the Netherlands or elsewhere, which could increase "tension between communities".

He added, "We need more, not less, dialogue, between different cultures and address the root causes behind terrorism."

He said this, in turn, increases the risk of terrorism, extremism and radicalisation.

Commission Examines the Use of Security Scanners at EU Airports    

The European Commission has issued on 15 June a Communication assessing the use of security scanners at EU airports, at the request of the European Parliament and Member States. In the wake of the terrorist attempt to use explosives on the Amsterdam–Detroit flight on 25 December 2009, security scanners are being increasingly used and are continuing to be trialled in several EU Member States including the UK, the Netherlands, France and Italy. Security scanners as such currently fall outside the scope of the EU regulations on aviation security — there is a patchwork of regulation in different Member States. The report published on 15 June highlights that this screening method offers a real possibility to reinforce passenger security. The Commission is in favour of an EU approach to ensure that, where Member States decide to use security scanners, their deployment and operation is based on common standards, requiring basic detection performance as well as ensuring a harmonised level of compliance with European fundamental rights and health provisions. It will seek the views of the European Parliament and of the Council in the light of the factual information gathered in the report.

EU Instrument for Spying on 'Radicals' Causes Outrage                          

Civil rights watchdogs and MEPs have attacked new EU plans to gather data on people who voice or share "radical messages" in a bid to pre-empt terrorist attacks.

Political activists labelled as "Extreme right/left, Islamist, nationalist or anti-globalisation" may in future find themselves under surveillance in line with a new, so-called, EU "data compilation instrument" put at the disposal of police and security forces in Member States.

The 70-question long "instrument," covering ideologies, dissemination channels, personal and professional data on "agents," would help police and security officials gather comparable intelligence across the EU, which could later be pooled together into a single data base.

Although non-binding, the guidelines can legitimise police co-operation and new practices in the Member States. The instrument was made public last month by Statewatch, a civil liberties watchdog, after being agreed by EU Ministers in April.

Italy's Manservisi Takes New EU Home Affairs Job                                           

European Commission President José Manuel Barroso has announced the first major reshuffle of senior Commission officials since the start of his second mandate.

The current Directorate-General for justice, liberty and security is being split in two.

Stefano Manservisi is to be Director-General at the head of the newly created Home Affairs Department. An Italian national who is currently Director-General for development, he was head of the private office of former Commission President Romano Prodi in 2001-04. His department will take responsibility for migration and other security issues that are important to Italy.

Françoise Le Bail, who was Barroso's spokeswoman when he first became President and is now Deputy Director-General for industry will become Director-General of the Justice Department. Viviane Reding, the European Commissioner for Justice, realises her objective of having a woman Director-General and the number of French Directors-General is restored to five, having fallen by one after the retirement of Odile Quintin on 1 May.
