Video Analytics: Oversold and underutilised but could key to preventing terror attack

Panel of video surveillance manufacturers agree that video analytics has yet to reach its full potential. Atul Rajput, Axis Communications, Stephen Jones, Seagate, Jonathan Rickard, Panasonic, and Andy Coles, Hikvision took part in a lively debate at IFSEC International 2017 about the trends shaping video surveillance over the next few years. Video analytics raises Far too many false alarms, not really performing said Jonathan Rickard but that is going to change as machine learning and processing power in cameras is increasing.

Video analytics can already identify unusual behaviour, if someone in a crowd who is drunk, or walking in an usual way. Analytics can take away the current expectation that a single security guard can monitor 150 cameras, said Rickard. A guard can see one or two cameras maximum. Even if you them screen with 50 cameras, they won t be able to do it. Machine learning is needed to monitor all cameras and then present anything usual to the security guard. ‘The future of video surveillance’ just starting at Security Management Theatre in @IFSEC pic.twitter.com/mrBYDJzyKg IFSEC Global Editor (@ifsecglobal) June 20, 2017 The potential of real-time analytics Andy Coles pointed out that Artificial intelligence is already built into many surveillance products already. Until now analytics have been used to review an incident after it happens. Imagine intelligent analytics that can interrogate behaviour before it happens. That s where security is going. Deep learning will make big impact in the years ahead.

Forensic searches for video analytics are good, but we need to now react in real time. Takes a lot of processing power and technology said Stephen Jones. Preventing terror attacks In many incidents such as the recent Manchester Arena bombing, terrorists conduct a reconnaissance before the bombing. How could video analytics have presented these attacks, asked an audience member. If know suspect was on terror list and you could get your VMS platform suppliers for government and businesses joined up, yes you could spot that. said Andy Coles. The technology is there, but as everyone is using disparate systems you cant do anything like that. In connecting systems Simplicity is key Atul Rajput added. The more complicated systems are the more mistakes can be made on installation.

ASFP takes first steps with RIBA-based Work Plan for Fire Protection

Niall Rowan CEO of ASFP, introduced a FIREX panel session about improving passive fire protection, recapping the progress made by the ASFP panel of experts with the development of an overarching Construction Strategy. Since its inception at FIREX in 2016, the panel has convened at a number of meetings and a roundtable to improve collaboration across silos in the construction industry with the aim of engaging fire safety engineers at an earlier stage in the construction process. This has resulted in the first steps being taken to deliver a RIBA-based Work Plan for Fire Protection to combat the fragmentation with regard to best practice in the world of construction, from building contractors to insurers.

The ASFP panel of experts was set up to include stakeholders from across the construction industry and represents the views of the following groups: architects/designers, criminal regulatory lawyers, fire engineers, tier-one contractors, passive fire protection manufacturers, passive fire protection insurers, the PFP trade body, fire service, building control, insurers, building owners. A number of these experts were present at the panel session to discuss the new Work Plan and answer questions from the audience. Present: Paul Bussey architect RIBA committee; Damian Ward Technical Compliance manager; Colin Wells Aviva; Glenn Horton consultant fire engineer; David O Reilly ASFP Ireland; Carl Atkinson Chairman.

7 Work Stages of Fire Management Architect Paul Bussey (AHMM) introduced the Fire Risk Identification, Evaluation, Reduction & Communication Process by RIBA work stages the panel has been working on. This new work plan proposal investigates the possibilities for introducing a sign off process as construction progresses, with all information reaching the end-user to support adequate fire risk management. The RIBA work stages method was chosen to identify each of the stakeholders and to define their roles and responsibilities at each stage, specifying who would contribute, inspect and sign off. Bussey explained: Building regulations do not have a good process throughout architects are trained as general practitioners and cannot be expected to be expert in every field. So we are trying to work with other specialists and bring them in the process at the right time The RIBA work plan methodology is used by UK architects to manage and plan the building design and construction process. Bussey introduced the 7 work stages of fire management that have been added to this: (Stage 0-1) Fire Risk? L,M,H; (Stage 2-3) Fire Design Strategy; (Stage 3-4) Fire Design & CDM; (Stage 3-4) Contractor Fire Plan; (Stage 4-5) Specialist Fire Input; (Stage 6-7) Fire Management. As Bussey explained, Stages 2&3 are the early stages in which big decisions need to be made about risk assessment. As architects progress through the stages, more detailed performance criteria are required and collaboration with technical fire experts and engineers becomes key.

At the early stages obtaining the right information about interfaces between one material and the other is an important aspect of the fire risk assessment, but details about requirements are often lacking. Simplifying the whole process will make it clear at the tendering stage how far the design has been developed. The next hurdle to overcome is the prescriptive stage: here a lot of specialist input is required and the input has to be coherently integrated. In the Fire Management stage the project is handed over to the client who has to start maintaining the building and has to know what exactly has to be maintained. The panel is working towards a document that captures all of this process with details about installation and certification resulting in a manual that can be used to check the process. The aim is to encapsulate key information and identify the role of each of the stakeholders for each of the RIBA work stages. Currently a discussion is underway to see whether inspection sign-off should be a regulatory sign-off as it is in Ireland. Ensuring there is a paper trail of sign-offs is an important part of the improvement proposed. But who exactly is responsible for carrying these out has not yet been established.

David O Reilly explained that the current code of practice in Ireland gives the owner paramount responsibility for appointing competent designers, certifiers and contractors. These assigned certifiers must be registered architects, chartered engineers or chartered surveyors. Colin Wells (Aviva) also pointed out that insurers would like to be involved at the earliest possible stage of design. However, this can often result in a discussion about costs and a discussion about risk needs to be had at this stage to assess whether the building should itself be protected once everyone is out of the building. During the Q&A the question was raised why no one from local government was represented on the panel. However Rowan explained that a representative from a local authority is on the panel but could not attend the session, noting that they are one of the most important stakeholders for sign off. Another point of interest raised was the problem that approved inspectors are paid by the client and that this can cause a conflict of interest. The panel acknowledged this is a problem that needs to be addressed. Professional standards need to be raised and attitudes need to change to ensure standards.

The work stage plan formalises the process. It explains a very complicated system and perhaps a plan of work is also required for refurbishments. But it needs to be simplified into a usable document. Also more complex building will require more complex solutions but ultimately it is important to ensure collaborating on every project is coordinated. The challenge is to get the right people involved at the right time.

Calls for greater collaboration as security industry faces blended threat

Recent cyber-security threats underscore the need for physical and information security teams to work more closely together. The threat is blended so the teams need to work together, said Ellie Hurst, Marcomm and Media Manager for Advent IM at IFSEC International. Hurst cited numerous attacks where hackers exploited vulnerabilities found in physical systems.

For example, in December, two individuals hacked into the Washington DC CCTV camera network days before Donald Trump s inauguration. Meanwhile in October, Hangzhou Xionmai Technology, a vendor behind DVRs and internet-connected cameras, inadvertently played a role in a wide-scale DDOS attacks against PayPal, twitter, Spotify and other platforms. While physical and information security professionals typically work in different departments, they need to find a common language, said Hurst. Do you know what you have? Do you know what they are built on? What is the life-cycle management of these products and are they patched? said Hurst. From there you can decide whether to accept the risk. Though rare, some organisations have merged the physical and information security teams, said James Willison, Founder of Unified Security Ltd.

Symantec has merged their team and Barclays is building one SOC for both cyber and physical security, he said. All is not lost if your organisation is behind. There are measures every company can take to mitigate the risk, said the presenters at IFSEC. Ninety percent of breaches are due to people s mistakes, poor configuration and maintenance, said Steven Kenny, Business Development Manager Architecture & Engineering (A&E) Program, Axis Communications. Creating a documented internal policy and increasing employee awareness is important, said Kenny. Training and education is also important. You need to find a training course suitable for those in physical security, added Hurst. At the end of the day, the threat isn t going to go away. You ve got to do the training.

Axis and HID are both well-known, global brands that are partnering together to develop open, IP-based secure access solutions. Mobile credentials are finally gaining greater acceptance and adoption thanks to an increasingly mobile-first perspective. This mobile access control offering demonstrates Axis innovative solutions to the market in partnering with a leader such as HID. It is an easy-to-deploy, easy-to-use solution, says Stephanie Hensler, Axis Communications director of business development, access control. The platform consists of: AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller, which makes yes/no decisions about who may enter, in which areas and at what times AXIS Entry Manager access control software, which is integrated with HID Mobile Access portal and is used to set up the systems, add new users and manage mobile IDs HID iCLASS SE and/or Multiclass SE readers HID Mobile Access portal HID Mobile Access app Axis Communications has also partnered with Simons Voss Technologies to launch an integrated, IP-based digital locking and access control system to replace physical keys for buildings. SmartIntego battery-powered digital locks come in the form of either cylinders, padlocks or door handles.

They connect wirelessly via a Simons Voss GatewayNode to Axis A1001 door controller and Axis Entry Manager software. Each SimonsVoss GatewayNode has a 16-wireless digital lock capacity and each Axis A1001 manages one GatewayNode. Therefor each A1001 door controller can manage up to 16 Simons Voss wireless locks and a hard-wired door reader. The integrated platform is offered as a standalone setup, with no server, or a fully integrated platform using an Axis software partner for enterprise installations. Online integration between the AXIS A1001 door controller and SmartIntego wireless lock components via AXIS Entry Manager work on an open, IP-based architecture. Also, in time for IFSEC, Axis is enhancing its compression technology to work with new 360 cameras and 4K resolution. The Zipstream technology ensures important forensic details of video footage are maintained, while minimising bandwidth and storage requirements by half. The company has also developed new domes that include the enhanced Zipstream, offering 360-degree, high-resolution coverage, cost-effectively. Combining these new 360-degree domes with the enhanced Zipstream technology really does deliver a cost-effective solution for customers, providing comprehensive coverage while ensuring the detail of that panoramic view is not lost when streaming and storing data, added Petra Bennermark, global product manager, Axis Communications.

Community engagement vital to prevent ripple effect of terrorism

Counter Terror Recent attacks show that governments must ensure adequate communication to and between communities to protect from increasingly-sophisticated terror attacks, experts have said. Speaking in a panel debate at IFSEC International 2017, Stephen Mackenzie, director of Mackenzie risk management said the whole philosophy has moved on counter-terrorism following attacks in Manchester and London. We re trying to make our counter-terrorism strategy much more public and transparent to engage the community.

We re seeing the balance between organisational response and the response of the ordinary citizen. With the rise in recent terrorist events we re working to get better information out into the public domain, but we re playing catch-up. His view was backed by the Canadian perspective of Bonnie Butlin, co-founder and executive director, Security Partner s Forum. Preparing for the 150 th anniversary of Canada has highlighted the importance of counter-terrorism in a new way , said Butlin. We re seeing trends for sectors of the economy to start working together like never before, she said. Typically reputational risks are so high that they are a powerful disincentive to sharing information, but if then one business gets hit it might ripple all the way through for lack of sharing. Butlin also noted that the lines between physical and cyber security are becoming increasingly blurred. We have discovered a number of IMSI devices, or fake cell towers, which will absorb the calls to emergency services and prevent them responding, she said. But we don t know who is responsible.

However Dato Amar Singh Ishar Singh, Kuala Lumpur police chief, Royal Malaysia Police, believes an even more robust policy than community engagement is required. Singh, who deals with the growing terrorist threat in Colombo, said police must be much more aggressive, rather than waiting for terrorists to come to us . You can have all the defensive strategy you want, being ready to respond with the army and police. But we need to be aggressive we target possible terrorists groups online and in Kuala Lumpur alone we have made more than 300 arrests.

Comelit s IP door entry system used for Battersea Power Station development

IFSEC exhibitor One of the UK s most iconic developments Circus West apartments at Battersea Power Station in London is using Comelit s IP video entry system. The first phase of the development comprises of 865 apartments at the Circus West site and uses Comelit s IP-enabled ViP entry system that sits on a shared network. The apartments are fitted with ICONA monitors.

More than 50 entrances are equipped with a mixture of 3one6 Sense flush-mounted panels, Vandalcom digital panels and Vandalcom single button panels. Help points have also been fitted in the carparks so residents can speak to the concierge/security office. The ICONA monitors in each apartment feature a 16:9 4.3-inch colour screen with capacitive, touchscreen and swipe activation. The 3one6 entrance panels feature LCD graphic displays, in 4mm mirror-finishes or brushed steel, and have a concealed loudspeaker. The network itself, supplied by Skanska Konnect, incorporates the site s access control system, as well as Comelit s video entry system, which consists of over 900 devices. Because it is IP-based, the system has no distance limitations and can provide an unlimited number of users with simultaneous video and audio communications. The on-site concierge is able to manage calls made from call points to apartments, and can call individual apartments. Residents can call the concierge via the intercom directory on their ICONA monitors, and can communicate with the other apartments via the same directory, which can be programmed by the installer on request. We are absolutely thrilled to have been chosen to take part in this iconic and exceptional project, said Francesca Boeris, Comelit s managing director.

With our emphasis on cutting-edge product design and aesthetics, we are proud to be associated with a development which showcases some of the best designers in the world. Comelit is exhibiting at IFSEC International between 20-22 June 2017 at London ExCeL. You will find them on stand G1150.

We need joint cyber-physical teams for cyber-physical alerts

IFSEC presentations James Willison BA, MA, MSyI is a respected specialist in security convergence and enterprise risk management. Also founder of Unified Security Ltd, Willison is speaking at IFSEC 2017 about How vendors can support ESRM and CSM strategies and What security managers need to know about cybersecurity . We caught up with James to find out a little more about these topics in advance of Europe s largest annual security show.

IFSEC International takes place between 20-22 June 2017 at London ExCeL. Get your free badge now. IFSEC Global: Hi, James, please tell us a bit about what you ll be talking about at IFSEC with Sarb Sembhi James Willison: We re going to be talking about how vendors can support enterprise security risk management. There s lots happening in the corporate strategy of bringing risk silos together and identifying cyber-physical attacks which is great. However, how can vendors help them better achieve this? Can they provide technologies which will actually calculate enterprise security risks? How can they make sure they re supplying secure software and secure technology? We ll also cover the strategic side of security management. So security managers, what do they do on their side?

How do they manage technology they re going to buy, how do they know it s good rather than bad so looking at principles really. It s high level strategy rather than technical. We won t be giving details on all the firewall stuff or what sort of software you re using. It s more about what sort of thing you should be looking for and relationships between suppliers and installers and what impressions they re giving the client. I m doing that talk with Sarb Sembhi. What we re saying to vendors is you ve got an opportunity to lead the market in identity access management because the information security guys aren t really doing it on a large scale IG: And what about your talk, alongside Steven Kenny of Axis Communications, about cybersecurity? JW: We ll be talking about what Axis are doing, which I know quite a lot about because I m working with them. Steve will cover hardening the cybersecurity of their products and systems and I will look at how these should be managed in an enterprise or smart city. And I ll be giving a strategic look at multi-disciplinary security teaming, which is what converged security really is.

But basically I ll be saying that people have talked about convergence quite a lot in the last few years, all over the world. But what we need is united cyber-physical teams working in tandem on cyber-physical alerts. Barclays recently merged their physical and cybersecurity teams into one big security team with technology that is cyber-physical and responding in real time. The highest level of achievement in this area would be them, Deutsche Telekom and BT. Some corporations are doing this converged security management but others are doing enterprise security, which is looking at all security risks but their teams are still siloed. So they re looking at all security risks but separately. What we re advocating is that even if you can t form one big department because of organisational problems, you form a separate team that includes both information and physical security people not just one or the other. CISOs tend not to think physical security systems providers really have the capability to offer cyber-physical security solutions IG: At least it makes sure they re talking to each other JW: Yes. I know these teams exist, but they re quite rare.

In our talk we consider how these teams can use converged technologies to respond to attacks on their physical security systems. We look at important actions to take in this area and this will be of particular relevance for security professionals working in the smart cities of the future. Out of interest, South Korea, a leader in smart cities, had an InfoSec type show recently and they had 15-20,000 information security people there, with 28,000 physical. So that was interesting as they discussed cyber-physical security, convergence, IoT and new technologies. Something to watch IG: Why do you think there is so little take up of cyber-physical security offerings from physical security vendors? JW: I think because the people looking after that would usually be the chief information security officer, and they don t think physical security systems providers really have the capability to offer cyber-physical security solutions. These vendors have specialised in physical up until now and to get into that market is quite hard because there are a lot of information security type access systems, obviously for IT, but identity access management is a big part of that. I think some of that will converge. I ve been to conferences where they talk about identity access management all day because it s on the network.

Then there are loads of products around that and some will include a physical element. What we re saying in our talk is you ve got an opportunity to lead the market because the information security guys aren t really doing it on a large scale. It s a growth area. And the internet of things obviously will impact all this. IG: Could you just clarify the kind of security professionals who will benefit from the talk? JW: We have a three-pronged approach. What you should be doing in your organisation to converge or have multi-disciplinary teams and how you can do that. You can take the initiative by going to HR and saying you want to form one, can you help me, because maybe I m not getting help from the IT people. So that shows initiative, to see what they say back before they come back and make you do it anyway.

HR might just realise they can form one department to save money. They no longer need two security functions. That s been an issue in the past. Someone tells them they need only one person to run the whole security department to include every area of security. There s this fear that all the chief information security guys are going to take over physical security. A lot of jobs are now advertised in this area, when you dig deep into them they re looking for chief information security officers. The IT companies don t see the point of siloing off. They tend to be more digitalised and, well, you need to know about IT anyway. But if you don t know about it, what are you doing here?

IG: As ever, it sounds like the technology is evolving faster than the corporate culture can keep up with. Is there anything else you want to mention? JW: Just that we re publishing a white paper with Axis on this subject, called Supporting Enterprise Security Risk Management, How vendors can support ESRM and CSM strategies . We are delighted to announce that this will be launched at IFSEC and available as a PDF on the Axis website (click here) or if you contact me at [email protected] We hope to have some printed copies for those who attend our presentation!
