Czech Chapter News                                                                                           

Czech Chapter’s Activities in 2009
The Czech Chapter of ASIS International was established in 2006 as a civil association. Unlike most professional associations, the Czech Chapter is not composed of representatives from individual companies, but of individuals who are professionals in the security field.

In 2009, the Czech Chapter conducted some very interesting actions to improve its activities and to fulfil members’ expectations. Last year we held several panel discussions on various topics attended by many prominent individuals from the security industry, and we held the traditional competition: Safety and Security project manager of the year. The Czech Chapter also took part in experts’ programmes in Prague at Fire & Security Days 2009, a prestigious professional exhibition on trends and technologies in fire equipment.

But first and foremost the Czech Chapter organised the Sixth Annual International Conference of Security Management. During this event, the need for expert committees was identified.

Consequently committees on standards, methodologies, grant policies, legislation, external relations, education and certification were established. Education is an important part of the activities of the Czech Chapter and we aim to provide standardised training for security personnel.

Activities for 2010
 
Ing. Martin Pecina, MBA, Minister of the Interior of the Czech Republic
 In 2010 our main activity was the organisation of the Seventh Annual Conference of Security Management, which was held on May 25 to 26, 2010 in Prague. www.kbm2010.cz

This Conference brought together the best professionals in the security field and was held under the auspices of the Minister of the Interior Ing. Martin Pecina, MBA, who personally appeared at the conference. The Programme of this edition was very diverse and rich. The main topics were: corruption, counterfeiting, social intervention, the trends in security technology and professional training. 

This international conference welcomed other significant foreign lecturers from internationally respected companies, such as: Marcus Lohmeier from Ernst & Young, experts from Czech branches of T-Mobile, Vodafone, Transparency International and representatives from leading companies in security industry. A significant part of the Conference was the exhibition on current trends in security technologies. The feedback from the participants was completely positive.The programme and the organisation of the Conference was highly appreciated by all –  participants, lecturers, exhibitors.

In 2010, the Czech Chapter will also improve its local involvement, and will continue to focus on training. Moreover, we would like to provide some international know-how into the national decision-making process of the Law on Private Security Services, a law that is missing in the Czech Republic. Finally, we would like to improve networking, to organise leisure activities for our members and to attract even more members to our ranks.

Current information about the life of the chapter is available on our website.

Please feel free to contact us for more information on the Czech branch of ASIS International.

EU to Lift Liquid Ban on Airplanes in 2013                                                     

Europe's air passengers will be able to take on board water bottles, sprays and gels from April 2013 on when a general ban on liquids will be replaced by better screening technology, the European Commission said on 29 April.

"This package takes a significant step forward in signaling the beginning of the end for the current restrictions on liquids in cabin baggage, with a clear and final deadline of April 2013," said Siim Kallas, the Commission Vice President in charge of transport.

In the upcoming three years, EU airports will be required to install new technology capable of detecting liquid explosives, so as to allow for the current ban to be lifted.

The restrictions go back to 2006, when UK authorities foiled a transatlantic bomb plot involving liquid explosives. Three British citizens were convicted last year of planning to blow up at least seven planes on a single day using liquid explosives smuggled aboard in soft-drink bottles.

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.

EU Moves on Data Protection Deal With US                                                  

The European Commission on 26 May proposed an overarching data protection agreement with the US, in a bid to avoid future disagreements after the European Parliament's veto on a banking data agreement for tracking terrorism funding earlier this year.

"Fundamental rights must be protected and respected at all times. I want an EU-US agreement that protects personal data rights while fighting crime and terrorism," Justice and Fundamental Rights Commissioner Viviane Reding said in a press statement.

The aim of the envisaged agreement is to create a framework of "legally binding personal data protection standards" that would apply to information transferred between the EU and the US in the context of police and judicial co-operation in criminal matters.

For instance, the agreement would "enhance" the right of citizens to access, rectify or delete data and would give independent public authorities a "stronger role" in helping people exercise their privacy rights and in supervising transatlantic data transfers.

Terrorist Attacks Decrease in Europe                                                             

Fewer than 300 acts of terrorism were registered in Europe last year and only one was an attack from an Islamist group, with most of them committed by separatist organisations in Spain and France, EU's police agency Europol reports.

A total of 294 terrorist acts were reported in EU member states in 2009, representing a 33 percent drop compared to the previous year and half the number of attacks registered in 2007, Europol said on 28 April.

"While the number of terrorist incidents is declining in Europe, terrorism remains a significant security threat to our society and citizens. Despite the overall trend, we should not drop our guard in the fight against terrorism," Europol director Rob Wainwright said in a statement.

Europol defines a terrorist offence as any act, planned or executed, that may seriously damage a country or an international organisation if committed to intimidate a population, put pressure on a government or destabilise political, constitutional, economic or social structures.

CSO Roundtable to Host Latin America Security Summit in Brazil         

The CSO Roundtable of ASIS International will host Opportunity and Risk: The CSO Roundtable Latin America Summit, a two-day conference for senior security executives in Rio de Janeiro, Dec. 6-7, 2010. This event will explore the risks, challenges and opportunities facing organisations doing business in the region as Brazil prepares to host the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics and Paralympics.

“As the region’s economic powerhouse and home to dozens of multinationals and forthcoming global events, Brazil is ideally suited to host this groundbreaking program,” says ASIS President Joseph R. (Bob) Granger, CPP.

Keynotes and speakers at this two-day conference will include government officials and members of the security and intelligence infrastructure in Brazil, security professionals from around the globe, experts in securing high-profile global events and leading business executives from multinational organisations.

“This CSO Roundtable event will provide a venue for security professionals from around the world to discuss the risks, explore the opportunities and learn how their businesses can expand and flourish in the region,” says Timothy T. Janes, CPP, a co-chair of the CSO Roundtable Advisory Board.

ASIS Foundation CRISP Report on Lost Laptops                                       

Replacing stolen units is just the start: lost productivity, damaged credibility, frayed customer relations, and heavy legal consequences can cripple your organisation. This report, written by Glen Kitteringham, CPP, reveals seven steps to protect laptops—and data—at the office, on the road, or at home. You get practical checklists and classification schemes to help determine adequate levels of data protection. Plus physical, electronic, and security measures you can immediately implement.

About the CRISP Series of Reports

Connecting Research in Security to Practice (CRISP) reports provide insights into how different types of security issues can be effectively tackled. Drawing on research and evidence from around the world, each report summarises the prevailing knowledge about a specific aspect of security, and then recommends proven approaches to counter the threat. Connecting scientific research with existing security actions helps form good practices.

EU Agency Maps Key Online Security Actors, Strategies, and Good Practices Across Europe             

The EU Agency, ENISA, (European Network and Information Security Agency) launches comprehensive study: European countries are highly varied in how prepared they are for dealing with the cybercrime, attacks and network resilience. This is a key finding of an updated and extended 2nd edition of ‘Country Reports’, published on 12 May. The Reports provide a comprehensive 750 pages-plus overview of the status of Network and Information Security [NIS] in 30 European Countries, including identification of stakeholders and trends.

A key finding of the Reports, conducted for ENISA by Deloitte, is that there is no particular pattern in the observed European countries with respect to the existence of a national NIS strategy. Yet, many countries are found to be putting major efforts into making progress in this area. Information exchange mechanisms and cooperation amongst key stakeholders also vary from country to country. Successful cases of NIS - in areas such as security incident management and reporting, risk management and emerging risks, network resilience, privacy and trust, and awareness raising – are outlined as inspiration for others.

News from the ASIS Information Resources Center (IRC)                         

Are you sometimes at a loss when trying to present a security awareness issue to your security staff or all staff employees? Do you produce a security awareness newsletter in print or electronically and need some new or fresh content? One idea is to follow up on already-established security observances, national or international.

Until recently, there was no single place to find these, and online searches tend to be inconsistent and unreliable. The IRC librarians have compiled a calendar listing after vetting many events, proclamations, etc. that have a security aspect.

Worldwide Listing of Security and Security-Related Observances” can be found in the IRC Online. You will find, in addition to relevant topics of interest, there may also be an abundance of resources at some of the sponsoring organisations. What could be better? If you know of a security event or observance in your part of the world that we missed, send us an email (info@asisonline.org) so that we can add it to a resource useful to many of your colleagues.

EU Anti-Terror Tsar Calls for Improved Rail Security                                  

EU anti-terror tsar Gilles de Kerchove has called for improved security measures at mainland rail stations to combat terror attacks.

Speaking in Brussels on 12 May, the Belgian pointed to the effectiveness of airport-style devices at Eurostar rail terminals in Brussels, London and Paris.

Even so, he said other major cross-border rail operators such as Thalys did not employ such measures.

"This illustrates there is a lot of room for improvement when it comes to improving cooperation on security measures," he said.

He warned that failure to step up security on the rail infrastructure, including rail and underground stations, left Europe vulnerable to a terrorist attack.

He told this website, "Let's remember that the most recent terrorist atrocities in Europe, in London, Madrid and Moscow, all happened on public transport."

 EU Tables New Safety Guidelines on Volcanic Ash                                   

More flexible rules and a new crisis cell are Brussels' latest moves to counter mounting criticism from airlines and some Member States following last month's airspace shut-down in reaction to the volcanic ash from Iceland.

Under the fresh guidelines, Member States will be able to minimise flying restrictions when confronted with volcanic ash, so as to avoid another generalised air ban in Europe. The week-long ban in mid-April left millions of passengers stranded and cost the industry billions of euros.

The recommendations were tabled jointly by the EU Commission, Eurocontrol, an air traffic control body pooling data from 38 European countries and the so-far absent European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

Internet Search Engines Scolded by EU Regulators                                  

EU regulators have reprimanded major search engines Google, Yahoo! and Microsoft's Bing for storing data search queries for too long and by so doing overlooking the bloc's Data Protection Directive.

A letter issued by the Article 29 Working Party, a group of EU privacy regulators, warned the three companies that their "methods of making users' search data anonymous" were out of step with the EU's rules on data protection.

The regulators sent copies of these letters to the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and to Viviane Reding, vice-president of the European Commission responsible for justice, fundamental rights and citizenship.
