Nedap previews IFSEC 2017: vehicle identification, mobile access and more

Nedap has a big focus on mobile access at IFSEC 2017. Mainland Europe is well presented at the trade and Nedap Identification Systems uses the show to launch new products and new innovations. To preview IFSEC 2017, we asked Maarten Mijwaart, general manager of Nedap Identification Systems, what he expects from Nedap at IFSEC 2017.

IFSEC Global: What solutions and products will Nedap be demonstrating this year? Maarten Mijwaart: This year we will demonstrate to the industry that we have invested significantly in further expanding and improving our portfolio of security products. A few examples are: Last year we introduced MACE, our platform for mobile access control. We have greatly improved the possibilities of the cloud based MACE Admin Portal. Virtual cards can now be easily distributed and also revoked by our partners or their end users. Virtual cards can be customized to reflect the corporate style of customers. And we can even authenticate the identity of the virtual card holder by using the fingerprint if that is stored in the phone operating system. Our uPASS product line of Rain RFID / UHF readers is expanded with uPASS Target, our best performing long range UHF reader for vehicle identification to date. The uPASS Target can now also be equipped with a second antenna to expand the reading area or to support an entry and exit lane with one reader.

We have also added new UHF tags to our portfolio. A UHF Rearview Mirror Tag that motorists can easily hang on their rear-view mirror. Additionally, EPC GEN2 V2 cards and windshield tags are available that support security enhancements based on AES encryption. Our TRANSIT Ultimate readers for high end vehicle and driver identification have been redesigned last year. This year we are focusing on improvements to optimize the overall performance and configurability of this market leading RFID reader. IG: Why should end users stop by at the Nedap booth this year? MM : We feel that many people are not aware of the benefits that our products can bring. Making security systems a little more convenient for people to use will greatly increase the support of people in organizations for the security systems that are implemented. Access control systems that slow down people or their vehicles often end up not being used in the best way possible, which decrease the security level of your organisation.

Security should not be in the way of people. Our solutions make security and convenience go hand in hand. In the building and outside the building. For people and for vehicles. IG: Why should system integrators consider working with Nedap and its products? MM : Well, for one because we understand the importance of our partner channel. We understand that they are the one that convert our products into solutions for their clients. That is why we try and make their lives as easy as possible. Our long range readers are engineered to support specific applications as good as possible.

We support many interfacing possibilities. Our products are documented well and are certified by radio authorities to be used in most countries in this world. Our partner portal makes a wealth of support material available and our free e-learning courses help you on your way quickly. And last but not least: our support staff and commercial staff are more than willing to lend you a helping hand when needed. Another reason is that we have a track record in providing high quality products. Our products are tested against competitive products regularly and almost always tend to be the preferred solution. And when we do get feedback on how to improve our products, we listen carefully and are able to implement these improvements without delay because our ability to do product developments and improvements ourselves. With our own team of engineers. We strive to be market leading.

We are constantly working on expanding and improving our portfolio. With only one simple reason: we d like to make sure that, in our field, we are the logical choice to work with. Now and in the future.

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!

Top 50 influencers in security & fire 2017: security manufacturers/service providers

6. Adam Stroud, CEO, Paxton Adam Stroud, who began his Paxton career 20 years ago on the factory production line, is now at the helm of a company that made it into the illustrious FT1000, an index of the 1,000 fastest growing companies in Europe. The company has also been named as one of the London Stock Exchange s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain.

Paxton s turnover has grown by 13m in three years, a rise of more than 65%, while profits have grown 50% year on year since Stroud became CEO in 2012. His admirers credit Stroud with driving Paxton s company s ethos, which is centred on simplicity and quality. Adam has also helped Paxton pre-empt and react to the proliferation of on-demand services and developments in smartphone capability. Adam has overseen international expansion with Paxton opening offices in the US, France, Germany, Benelux, South Africa and the UAE. Stroud has also overseen the introduction of IP technology to its Net2 system. He has also recognised the synergy between access control and door entry to introduce Net2 Entry to the market, and more recently bringing access control and building automation together to create net10. Adam was actively involved in the debate that advances in consumer technology meant that customers now expected their security systems to work seamlessly together.

Aware of the growing demand for smart buildings, essentially systems that interact with other building facilities such as lighting and heating, Adam has strived to make the security industry aware of the business opportunity that exists for installers who choose to diversify into building automation.

A lifetime of positive influence in the security industry: Mike Tennent, Tavcom Training

Tribute The security industry was saddened to hear in early May of the passing of one of its finest, most influential and nicest people: Mike Tennent, the founder of Tavcom Training. We have just revealed our Top 50 influencers in security & fire 2017 and we thought it a fitting and well deserved tribute to recognise Mike with a special lifetime of influence accolade. Our criteria for influence encompasses not just an individual s impact on the organisation he or she runs or works for but on the wider industry too.

Mike undoubtedly ticked both boxes. Founding Tavcom Training in 1994 Mike Tennent built his business to become the clear leader in security systems training in the UK and one with an increasingly global footprint. With the help of local partners Tavcom courses are now available to students in Dubai, Ghana, Singapore, Kuwait, Oman, South Africa and the US. But Mike never expanded for expansion s sake. Growth was never pursued at the expense of quality, as this tribute from Jon Laws , a lecturer at Tavcom, attests. Insisting on the highest standards Mike played a pivotal role in the professionalisation of an industry where many aspects of regulation, licensing and training were once minimal or non-existent. Tavcom offers technical and non-technical training in a wide range of fields like security management, control room operations, system planning and project management, structured cabling, disaster recovery, counter eavesdropping, PAT testing and covert CCTV. They provide award-winning BTEC-certificated courses to installers, operators, managers and designers of CCTV, network IP, intruder alarm, access control, fire alarm and more. Recognised, respected and well liked across the industry, Mike will be hugely missed.

IFSEC Global extends its condolences to Mike s family and friends we hope this tribute does him justice.
