a8EU Cyber-Security Legislation on the Horizon

The European Commission will propose binding EU legislation before the end of the year to help Member States plug huge gaps in their cyber-security defences.

 

Speaking at a cyber-security debate organised by the Security & Defence Agenda in Brussels on 10 May, the Commission said ill-equipped Member States are totally unprepared for future cyber threats.

 

"The level of preparedness across the EU is not high-enough," said Antoaneta Angelova-Krasteva, a Commission information security network expert. Angelova-Krasteva voiced alarm at the increasing sophistication of threats and their number.

 

In the past four years, only 10 Member States have or put in place or are in the process of developing cyber security strategies. Estonia was the first Member State to publish a broad national cyber security strategy in 2008, followed by Finland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

 

In comparison, the United States published theirs in 2003 and it was updated in 2011.

a9Resilience Lead Auditor Certification - 17-21 December 2012 - Castle Oud-Poelgeest, Leiden, The Netherlands

Managing the risks of disruptive events is critical to the survival and competitiveness of any organisation. The ASIS International Resilience Lead Auditor Certification will help you assess organisational and supply chain risks, maintain and improve resilience management systems, and successfully conduct resilience management system audits. The RABQSA certified training programme supports standards that address the management of risk related to events that may disrupt an organisation's operations. The RABQSA-RES Competency Unit covers the requirements of resilience standards (e.g., ANSI/ASIS.SPC.1: 2009; ISO 28002:2011; DS 3001:2009; or NEN 7131:2010), as well as discipline specific standards in business continuity management (e.g. ANSI/ASIS/BSI BCM.1:2010; BSI 25999:2007; or ISO/FDIS 22301), and security management (e.g. ISO 28000:2007, ASIS/WD.PAP.1). The course seamlessly integrates with the ISO 31000 Risk Management standard to allow organisations to develop a cost-effective, holistic approach to managing risk.

a10ASIS International Receives ANSI Approval for Physical Asset Protection Standard

Developed by a Technical Committee consisting of more than 80 members from 17 countries, the document provides a comprehensive management approach designed to assist security professionals in identifying, applying and managing physical security measures in order to safeguard an organisation's assets: its people, property and information.  
 

Physical asset protection, also known as physical security management, includes the protection of both tangible (eg physical, human, infrastructure and environmental) assets and intangible assets (such as brand, reputation and information). The all-new Physical Asset Protection Standard offers a framework for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving physical protection systems.

 

"All organisations face risks,"said Allison Wylde, Co-Chair of the Physical Asset Protection Technical Committee and course leader for the MSc in Project Management which runs at the London Metropolitan Business School.

 

"The challenge is to first determine how much risk is acceptable and, second, how to cost-effectively manage risk to meet strategic and operational objectives. This standard helps practitioners determine the appropriate balance between these competing demands."

a11EU to Spend €50mn on Private Security in Afghanistan

The EU's external action service (EEAS) plans to spend up to €50 million on private security guards for its Afghanistan mission over the next four years.

 

It unveiled the tender on 10 May, saying the money would be spent on "protection of staff, their families in the country, visitors from headquarters or other EU institutions, the premises and the goods of the EU delegation in Afghanistan."

 

The contract - valued at between €30 million and €50 million plus VAT - is to cover at least 100 security guards, as well as "mobile patrol teams, equipment [and] armoured cars."

 

It is aiming to sign up a big company with prior experience in Afghanistan - the winning bidder must have an annual turnover of at least €20 million and 400 staff.

 

Five companies are eligible to compete - the Hungarian-based Argus, Canada's Gardaworld, British firms G4S and Page Group, and French company Geos - after getting on an EEAS private security shortlist last year.

 

The tender also stipulates applicants must present "an official document issued from the competent Afghan authority that certifies that the company is entitled to operate security services in Afghanistan" before the contract is signed.

a14Parliament Votes Bring ACTA Closer to Final Rejection

Three Committees in the European Parliament have rejected the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) on 31 May, in what some MEPs described as the last nail in the coffin for the controversial agreement.

 

The Civil Liberties, Industry and the Legal Affairs Committees in the European Parliament all rejected ACTA in separate opinions.

 

The Trade Committee, which has the lead on the dossier, is scheduled to give its opinion on ACTA on 21 June, paving the way for a vote in plenary before the summer recess, where a growing number of MEPs appear ready to kill the agreement.

 

In its opinion, the Civil Liberties Committee said ACTA failed to respect the EU's fundamental rights while the Industry Committee said it fails to balance intellectual property rights, business freedom, protection of personal data and the freedom to receive or provide information.

a16Danes Running Out of Time as EU Patent Blocked

Danish diplomats are prepared to consider "all options" to resolve the location of a European patent court before the June EU summit, but are losing confidence that the issue can be agreed before the end of their Presidency.

 

The EU's 27 national Ministers in charge of competitiveness issues failed to reach agreement on the common EU patent due to a split on the location of the Court's seat. London, Munich and Paris are still vying to host the seat of the upcoming agency.

 

Guy Verhofstadt, the President of the liberals and democats group in the European Parliament described the ongoing squabble as "a scandal".

 

He recommended that "a provisional seat [be set up] in Brussels, pending a definitive agreement, as happened in 2001 when the Food Agency was disputed by Italy and Finland."

 

Danish sources said that "all options" would be on the table in bilateral discussions with France, Germany and the UK, but reminded that agreement would require the backing of all the Member States.

 

They said they were hopeful rather than confident that a deal could be struck.

a18EU-Funded Consortium Unveils Border-Control Robot

An EU-co-financed project is aiming to mass-produce autonomous land vehicles designed to stop irregular migrants.

 

Using a €13 million grant from the European Commission's research budget and €7 million of private funding, a consortium of researchers and private firms has after four years of work produced a functioning prototype of the "transportable autonomous patrol for land border surveillance" or "Talos."

 

The unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) was demonstrated in Poland in mid-April at a military training ground in front of a hundred-or-so people, including officials from Frontex, the EU's Warsaw-based border control agency, Polish Ministers and border guards from around Europe.

 

The complete system includes two autonomous UGVs, an unmanned command unit and a two manned command centres. Sensor towers are deployed in areas not accessible to UGVs.

 

One vehicle - "the interceptor" - is designed to track and chase down suspicious people spotted by its twin vehicle, which is equipped with optical and infra-red sensors. If they notice a suspect, they notify the interceptor and the command units, where border guards can order people via an onboard loudspeaker to halt and present their papers.

a20New Paper on Cyber Security Strategies

In a constantly changing cyber environment, EU Member States need to have flexible and dynamic cyber security strategies to meet new, global threats.

 

ENISA published on 8 May a paper on National Cyber Security Strategies. The paper includes a short analysis of the current status of cyber security strategies within the European Union and elsewhere. It also identifies common themes and differences, and concludes with a series of observations and recommendations.

 

The paper is based on the preliminary findings and analysis from an ENISA project that is working to develop a Good Practice Guide on how to develop, implement and maintain a national cyber security strategy. The Good Practice Guide is intended to be a useful tool and practical advice for those responsible and involved in cyber security strategies.

 

The project involves experts from the public sector and stakeholders from the private sector across Europe and will be finalised in Q4, 2012.

a21EU Commission Proposes Shakeup of EU Fingerprint Database

Senior MEP Timothy Kirkhope has welcomed proposals to strengthen the Eurodac database, which collects fingerprints of asylum seekers and some illegal entrants to the EU.

The centre right deputy said the move will assist with processing asylum claims and is "another useful tool" for combating terrorism and serious crime.

Eurodac is designed to make it easier for Member States to easily determine which EU country should process the application under the so-called Dublin regulation, which requires asylum seekers to seek refuge in the first safe country they reach.

The system also prevents asylum seekers from making several claims in several European countries.

The proposal to beef up the scheme was tabled by the European commission on 30 May.

If approved, it will update the current decade-old system by granting better protection of data and providing a series of safeguards.

The new proposal would also allow Eurodac data to be used by national law enforcement authorities, in exceptional circumstances, for the fight against terrorism and serious crime. Such a use would not be permitted on a systematic basis.

a22Brussels Explores Creation of 'EU Public Prosecutor'

MEPs on the recently established Anti-Mafia Committee and the European Commission have revived talk of creating an EU Public Prosecutor's Office.

 

Slovenian social democrat MEP Tanja Fajon - among others - proposed the initiative at a meeting of the anti-crime body in the European Parliament in Brussels on 4 June.

 

EU Home Affairs Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom said it would be a "good idea," but added that it needs wider political backing.

 

A Parliament spokesman said that several Member States are against it as things stand.

 

The new EU office was first mooted in a Comission study 12 years ago.

 

It got a legal footing in the Lisbon Treaty, which says a group of nine or more Member States can create it inside Eurojust, the EU's joint judicial body in The Hague.

 

Malmstrom told the MEPs on that - apart from the human cost to victims - crime and corruption costs the EU economy €120 billion a year, or 1 percent of total GDP.

 

"Huge amounts of money are lost every second in the criminal sector ... We need to get this money back to the EU citizen and back to the tax payer, especially in the economic crisis," she said.

a23Commission Carries Out the First Schengen 'Health Check'

Over 400 million Europeans currently enjoy passport-free travel across the Schengen area. With Europeans making more than 1.25 billion journeys every year, vigilance is required to defend citizens' right to free movement. The Commission adopted on 16 May its first 'health check', a biannual overview on the functioning of the Schengen area, which will contribute to enhancing political guidance and cooperation amongst Schengen participating countries. The report is accompanied by guidelines which seek to ensure a coherent interpretation and implementation of the selected issues, in a spirit of solidarity.

 

"Schengen is one of the most valued achievements of European integration. It is widely cherished by EU's citizens and makes a major contribution to our economic prosperity. Everyone needs to do their part to preserve Schengen. This starts with a regular, healthy debate in the European Parliament and the Council for which the report provides a good basis", said Cecilia Malmström, Commissioner for Home Affairs.

 

The first report covers the period from 1st November 2011 to 30th April 2012 and assesses in particular:

  • The situation at the external Schengen borders and within the Schengen area
  • The application of Schengen rules
  • Visa issuance procedures and visa free regimes
  • Guidelines on the issuance of (temporary) residence permits and travel documents
  • Guidelines on police measures in the internal border zones
