Convergence of HR and Security in the Connected Enterprise
In the present economic, technological and social environment, companies must change their mindset: security is no longer a technical issue but a managerial problem which could undermine the business continuity of the company itself. The digital transformation is creating a growing area of risk because with Industry 4.0 everything within the company is connected and therefore everything can be blocked by outside hackers. The internal threats may arrive mainly by employees or by people working as outside contractors. Executives, must address this with integrated approach: namely, HR and Security Departments must manage risks in collaboration changing the traditional “silos attitude”. To do that, they need to work together on some “sensible” internal issues such as hiring, training, managerial responsibility, control of people in a legal framework. In companies where this convergence of hard and soft skills has been implemented the results have been very good.

Big Data, Big Challenges: Learn How to Guard Against Data Loss and Eliminate Downtime
Data is intrinsically linked to security, safety, operational efficiencies ‒ and in many cases profitability.
This presentation demonstrates how organizations can build redundancy and resilience into their integrated surveillance systems and the key levels of protection that should be incorporated to guard against data loss and minimize potential downtime.
David Aindow will also discuss the individual protection measures that can be built into each system to provide levels of failsafe redundancy and resilience, and considerations when incorporating new technologies and regulations such as:

A new age of militancy in Europe?
On 2 November Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi urged his group’s supporters to step up their attacks in Turkey in response to the offensive against Mosul, following a year of high- and low-profile attacks in various European countries. Meanwhile, al-Qaeda continues to place a high priority on attacks in the West, and is seeking to exploit Islamic State’s difficulties in its Caliphate. This comes at time of rising, but limited, fascist violence in Europe as well as an emerging threat from leftist/anti-austerity elements. So what are these groups objectives in Europe? How will developments elsewhere affect the threat to Europe and which countries are likely to face the greatest risk? What type of businesses could be impacted and how?

Genséric will be joined by Angela Pietrantoni, CEO of Scienze per la Sicurezza Consulting, who supported him in the change management project for RAI.
Vulnerabilities in IoT Devices
Even the largest manufacturers of broadband routers sometimes use unsecure and vulnerable firmware components. The risks connected to "network objects" are aggravated by their highly accessible nature, so in addition they have problems similar to the broadband routers, IOT devices must be protected against a wide range of active and passive threats. Among the active threats we must consider that the IOT devices are often connected to the network and are located in places from which they can access and control other network equipment. In 2017 the Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will play a greater role in targeted attacks. These attacks could benefit from the growing use of devices connected to exploit vulnerabilities and unsafe systems and disrupt our business processes, as happened in the case of Mirai malware. But today we have the means to protect our IOT.

Europe is at the forefront of developing smart city projects. Yet, aspects of governance, security and resilience are often not clearly featured and explained.
In contrast, information technology is massively involved in the development of the smart city without security being embedded by design.
This presentation intends to outline the many challenges faced by smart city projects and how the security practitioners of all specialities are concerned, either as relatively passive actors or as solution providers.
Topics in focus will be:
• Internet of Things: the security challenges;
• Big Data, Smart Cities and the European General Data Protection Regulation;
• Governance and Public/Private Partnership;
• The role of authorities in the development of smart city projects;
• Collaboration and regulation are key to sustainable city.
We will conclude by showing some of the many opportunities the smart city concept offer to the security profession.

Book presentation: Managing the Complexity of Critical Infrastructures
The book “Managing the Complexity of Critical Infrastructures. A Modelling and Simulation Approach” (http://www.springer.com/it/book/9783319510422) describes how to perform sophisticated what-if analyses to support the security assessment in complex scenarios involving several interdependent Critical Infrastructures (CIs). The book collects the tutorial material developed by the authors for several courses on the modelling, simulation and analysis of CIs, representing extensive and integrated CIP expertise. It will help CI stakeholders, CI operators and civil protection authorities understand the complex system of CIs, and help them adapt to these changes and threats in order to be as prepared as possible for mitigating emergencies and crises affecting or arising from CIs.

Both physical and cyber security are integral parts of a coherent risk management programme, yet sharing a common strategy and speaking the same language cannot be taken for granted. Although the Internet of Things is forcing convergence, a collaborative approach for the protection of enterprise assets barely exists. Traditionally, the role of securing information assets lies with the CISO and the protection of physical assets with the CSO. But who is ultimately responsible when the two disciplines meet? Combining strategic efforts to reinforce each other will reduce risks, save money and benefit security overall.

Cyber Security and Physical Security Systems
Physical security systems and devices, including cameras and door controllers, are smarter and more powerful than ever before. As part of both public and private networks, they are increasingly interconnected to facilitate their management, speed up communications, increase data sharing and, most importantly, empower security professionals to keep people and organizations safe. But, while citizens and organizations benefit from this growing connectivity of security, emerging cyber threats, hazards and criminal activity can lead to new vulnerabilities and risks. In this session, we will address policies and best practices when implementing a coordinated and unified security vision within a multi-stakeholder model.

According to Environmental Criminology approach criminal acts tend to be concentrated in specific areas of the urban landscape, and also occur at certain hours of the day. Starting from this definition, several techniques of prediction have been experimented using crime data collected by law enforcement officers, information on urban disorders and the degree of insecurity of the community in question, interpreted by mathematical models. Using these techniques makes it possible to identify both the areas of the city and the times at greatest risk.
This is the future if we want to make our cities truly secure and resilient!

Lessons From Terrorists Attacks in Europe
The recent terrorist attacks in France, Belgium an Germany have marked a significant change in the attack profile of IS in Europe. By targeting sites such as restaurants, theatres, open-air events with the aim of causing mass casualties, it is appropriate that businesses should draw the right and immediate lessons in order to prevent or mitigate such attacks elsewhere.
The presentation will highlight:
First how public force (military/police) was deployed in Europe following attacks as well as lessons learned with a focus on how it helped (or not) companies to operate safely;
Second, what companies did following the attacks and leveraging case studies what worked, what still requires improvement.

Manageability of Data Security in a Hyper-Connected World
When a weak surveillance setup is performed within security systems, hackers can have access and consummate illicit activity, manipulate live camera, exploit personal or corporative confidential data and access restricted areas. In order to protect the entire vigilance infrastructure assuring secure data from intruders, cryptographic keys are used in Trusted Platform Modules for network communication protocols, certificated infrastructure, cameras and core devices ensuring that only authorized people have access to every feature.
Practical examples based in cases:
What is needed for data security in Video Surveillance Systems: protection of cameras, servers, clients and storage devices, certificates, network protocols.

In the wake of last year's cyber-attacks, companies are reviewing their corporate security operations. Massive cyber incidents made clear that security was not merely a matter of protecting employees and facilities from physical harm. A cyber-attack on a major business area could disrupt business operations and pose major strategic issues for the conduct and even the survival of a multinational business. Executive managers are aware of the need to protect their organizational assets, both physical and digital, unfortunately they were often dismayed to discover that the security function was highly decentralized and widely dispersed through their companies’ management structure, making accountability and coordination difficult. Despite having strategic implications for business management, security is still being treated as an operational concern by most companies. Centralization, coordination, and strategic management of the corporate security function should be treated in a centralized manner to confront modern security challenges. Security cannot be treated as an “add-on”; security must be made a priority and become integral to the organizational culture. This integration of security must be done from top down and include everyone in the organization to effectively mitigate the insider threat and create a sufficient level of security awareness within the organisation. High-level reporting and accountability should be the rule rather than exception, especially in larger companies where silo problem are more deeply entrenched.

Masterclass 3: How a Resilient Organisation Helps CEOs Prepare for Catastrophic Cyberattack
Barrie Millett has spent over 25 years assisting organisations in becoming more resilient. In the past 8 years, his focus has been on Critical National Infrastructure assets, ensuring that an integrated, enterprise-wide approach was taken to manage physical security, cybersecurity and business continuity - protecting reputation and revenues.
With the number of successful cyberattacks growing and the number of sensitive files exposed in such attacks growing even faster, the split between physical security and cybersecurity can cause severe damage to businesses when opportunities to leverage effective response capabilities are missed.
Getting fragmented and matrix organisations to embrace a collaborative approach has presented Barrie many challenges, each ready to derail his “resilience” vision. Emerging threats, business change, outsourcing and disparate supply chains all influence outcomes.
Having put in place an effective and agile response capability with minimal additional resources, Barrie will present:
• how Security / Resilience Directors can lead in explaining the business consequences of a breach
• 7 animal instincts to avoid during a catastrophic cyberattack
• how an integrated approach enables core business to continue rather than being swamped by attack response
• benefits of developing a simplistic response plan that engages with the business
• practical advice covering a full spectrum of organisational challenges that follow a major cyberattack
• how to effectively strengthen teamwork and communication among teams and executives
• why failure to understand the impact of gaps and effectively develop resilience can have serious consequences
• the shift from isolated to effective engaged teams with increased stakeholder engagement from boards, business teams, employees and governments.
Leverage Social Media to Mitigate Risk for Your Organisation
Every security professional fears being caught off guard. They fear a question from the CEO about an incident they're unaware of, and they fear receiving information too late to effectively respond. As companies increasingly move into new markets and the threat environment in some established markets evolves, organisations are confronting new challenges. To meet these challenges and maintain situational and threat awareness, real-time information has never been more important.
Social media can provide the most real-time information available. In recent years, the social media ecosystem has grown rapidly, yet most organisations are not extracting value from this rich information source. With over two billion social media users worldwide, social media platforms represent an enormous untapped resource. During this session, Dataminr's Tim Willis and Ed Monan will explore how to sift through the noise and find the information that matters most to you, so you can fully leverage social media to better protect your company's interests.
Edward Monan is a Director of Corporate Risk Sales at Dataminr, a New York-based social media analytics company. Edward previously worked as a contract analyst for various US government agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security, where he most recently served as a Watch Officer. Edward studied at Boston College, Georgetown University, and ETH Zurich. He is based in Washington, DC.

Managing securely the flows of people and material through a single infrastructure
In many industries, security norms have been defined to specify the security requirements. Increasingly, access control has to manage not only the flows of persons, but also the flow of handicapped people, people with large corpulence, hand-luggage and material.
In this presentation, the challenges to handle multiple types of flows simultaneously will be reviewed through the prism of real projects and requirements imposed by security norms of different industries.

Three Crucial Focus Points for Modern Security Risk Managers
Word documents and spreadsheets do not cut it anymore in today´s risk management - they simply can´t deliver the three things crucial for a security professional to deliver to the organization!
1. Updated assessments: Risk assessments must be continually updated as organizations today face increasingly changing and diverse potential threats. In order to prioritize resources you have to assess the threats on updated information and compare them to how risk-averse your organization is.
2. Alignment with business objectives: We all know that a risk manager must deliver value to the organization – but how? One way is to identify your organisation´s business objectives and make sure that risk assessments are aligned with them so that initiatives are supporting the organization to reach those objectives.
3. Involvement and Collaboration: By involving your colleagues you can increase the value of your role as a risk professional. You can facilitate and support the risk management process but identifying the right threats and mitigating measures is best done if employees are involved and collaborate.

Master Class 4:
A Matter of Trust: Contrasting Enterprise, Consumer and Regulatory Perspectives on Privacy and Security
Axel Petri is responsible for assuring enterprise-wide security for the Deutsche Telekom group; spanning strategy, regulations, and control, as well as steering the group-wide cooperation of all security departments in all security domains. Deutsche Telekom’s operations cover fixed and mobile network infrastructure and cloud solutions for consumers, businesses and the public sector in more than 50 countries.
Having implemented an integrated security function across the enterprise, one critical area of focus for Axel is the interaction and inherent tension between customer privacy interests and public security needs. A hot topic for regulatory and media focus, this is an arena where the company’s security approach and functioning becomes centre-stage, not just in the C-suite or Boardroom, but in driving customer choices.
This masterclass will outline the leading thinking from a company at the forefront of bridging the physical world of critical infrastructure and the Internet of Things:
• The company dilemma on questions of trust
• Trends in telecoms and consumer opinion
• The current cyber-physical threat landscape
• Challenges with the incoming European data-protection regulations
• Public-Private-Consumer responsibilities and opportunities
• Making security and privacy complementary, not adversaries
• Turning security and privacy know-how into business opportunities
• Real-world applications to tackle the threats in times of ever growing digitization (e.g. smart buildings and smart cities)
In a world where business relies increasingly on the enterprise’s security management team, this is an unmissable learning opportunity to address a matter at the core of security leaders’ responsibilities.

From Perimeter Protection to Area Protection
The outdoor perimeter protection of wide areas is a challenge for the Security Manager that are facing threats and increasingly sophisticated attack techniques. The use of innovative technologies oriented to the protection of wide areas with a limited number of sensors allows to raise safety standards and at the same time reduce maintenance costs without affecting systems effectiveness. Three outdoor perimeter protection case studies will be discussed related to the effective protection of a power station, an industrial plant and a headquarters that demonstrate how Security Manager can implement an effective security system with an optimized total cost of ownership. The use of wide area security technologies such as radar and intelligent thermal camera with target geo-referencing allows a significant increase in the level of security compared to traditional fence line technologies, meeting budget constraints.

HUMANTECH – The Interface between Tech and Manpower
Technology without the properly trained personnel interfacing with it is not effective. Personnel are trained only in the use of technology but not sufficiently in actual security procedures. There remain huge gaps in the ability of tech operators such as CCTV monitors to effectively analyses what they are seeing, identify potential threats or hostile surveillance. Moreover, when a clear and present threat is identified, they lack the skills to efficiently transition from routine to emergency procedures whilst optimizing the tech at their disposal to manage the crisis. We will discuss the critical security skills for tech operators.

Corporate Security and ICT: Stories of Divergence, Convergence and Integration
The convergence of physical security and logical security is a subject that in recent years has caught the attention of management and publications around the world. It is believed that multinationals with a strong ICT infrastructure such as the telco or financial sectors are heavily involved in this convergence whilst the industrial sector is lagging in implementing this structural convergence. But the facts are perhaps different, and there is confusion about what convergence is – let’s clarify these divergent perspectives.

This presentation is aiming to define the true meaning of “duty of care” starting with the legal basis in US, Canada, EU as well as some other countries also addressing some of the latest trends to highlight the main philosophy of the concept with some best practices.
Unfortunately, today, “duty of care” has a very narrow and shallow interpretation by many since each and every expert look at the issue only with their own binoculars. In fact, “duty of care” is a combination of several multiple admonishments in today’s connected complex global business world, that is why the true notion is required and essential to start with not to be negligent or irrelevant. Most of the time, misconduct is mainly due to the negligent approach to some widely verse issues in different territories under different legislations with in different requirements of the businesses. The aim is again to look and exchange information the concept of “duty of care” in a few angles, starting with the legal aspects and determination of duty question and common approach of the legislations in US, Canada EU and UK and some other countries and more over most binding points for security professionals. The most recent global trends in duty care on global scale operations while eliminating interpersonal justice and approaches, while addressing the role of policies and negligence and obligations with in a mutual interpretation of business and security.
