Professionals must have soft skills set, panel claims

IFSEC 2017 Ensuring candidates have softer non-technical skills is crucial for recruiting health and safety professionals, a panel has claimed at the SHExpo keynote theatre. Anna Keen, director of Acre, which has been building a competency framework with 50 leading professionals, said the firm was really starting to see a change around what clients are looking for . The firm built a psychometric profiling tool that shows not just who you are, but the impact of your character against core competencies and the results showed a number of interesting findings about health and safety professionals.

She said: We wanted to give people an understanding in how they could progress their career and understand what their teams looked like. There were a number of things that challenge the stereotypes, we were seeing a lot about high-caring individuals, and natural intrigue. Confidence Keen said one of the key discoveries was about confidence. She said: It s a real issue having the confidence to challenge at executive level and with those people who you work with on an everyday level. Self-awareness is also something we are challenging too and how they understand themselves. For example, if someone says they aren t good with data, we looked at how that impacts their business. Richard White, quality, health, safety and environment (QSHE) director at CBRE said the themes from Keen were now commonplace . He said: My view has changed. I used to think a relevant degree was the most important aspect, but now it s also about softer skills, the ability to present and speak the right commercial language of the business, and you can train the other technical aspects required.

Softer skills are crucial to the success. Never enough Ruth Denyer, head of operational risk at ITV, agreed: You can never have enough technical knowledge to do every production it s all about engagement with those that can help. The technical piece gives you a comfort factor, and the engagement piece is much softer. You have to change your thinking about White said: You can t be good at everything if you get the right mix of people around you, that works for the whole team. Keen also said that Acre found people recruiting a reflection of themselves , which needed to change. Broad church Denyer added the entire way conversations were held with associated elements of other industries and professions was also needed across risk assessment. Health and safety is just one of the risks being is managed there is a lot which can be learned from the broader risk framework. Much broader conversations about risk are required.

Man and machine: How to team up to meet cybersecurity challenges

In today s cybersecurity landscape, the pressure is on. CISOs and other executives are suffering security insomnia : attack surfaces are growing exponentially, their security teams are receiving overwhelming numbers of alerts, real threats are masked by false positives, and the numbers of serious breaches are reaching new records the list goes on and on. To protect their organizations, a paradigm shift is required, a new holistic approach that cuts detection-to-response time and provides complete visibility across network, endpoint, and payload.

The systems must offer continuous, round-the clock incident monitoring, detection, and investigation, all while reducing operating costs and addressing the ever-expanding cybersecurity skills gap. The Answer: Automate the analyst Driverless taxi cabs in major cities are becoming a reality. If you can automate something that complex, why not automate cyber investigations? Automating investigations frees up valuable human analyst time so he/she can focus on tasks that DO require human judgment and intuition. Automating the complex work of incident investigation slashes dwell time and makes security operations vastly more efficient. Verint Systems is exhibiting at IFSEC International, which runs from 20-22 June 2017 at London ExCeL. You can find them on stand G375. Get your free badge now. Here s why.

The automated analyst: Thinks just like a human investigator Virtual investigators gather evidence, extract leads, create an intelligence map, build hypotheses, and then verify or refute said hypothesis, just like an analyst would. Unlike humans, though, it can analyze thousands of leads per day, providing analysts with clear, visual incident storylines that accelerate detection and response. Combines the best of man and machine In a great example of teamwork, the machine documents workflow and rationale for the human analyst. When the analyst adds new evidence, the machine re-evaluates the incident. The machine also learns from the analyst how to improve future investigations. Collects the right information Automated investigation ensures that analysts get the big picture when complex threats are detected the complete information that is necessary to resolve the threats. Automation gives analysts total visibility of the attack surface from attack chain to the attack vectors; from network, endpoints, and files to the organization s ecosystem gleaning insights as sensors share the data. Blends detection with proactive forensics Automated forensic analysis, using a full set of network and endpoint forensics tools, helps incident response teams identify the root cause, trace the attack storyline, and contain attacks before data is exfiltrated. Combined with intelligence from other sources, it allows analysts to connect the dots among seemingly unrelated events and understand how the attackers entered, what systems are compromised, and what and how to contain, remediate, and prevent future incidents.

Transforms alerts into actionable intelligence Automated investigation can extract essential information from every piece of evidence, build linkage and context, visualize for immediate response, and update the intelligence map in real time. Man, machine or both? Cyber attacks are getting more and more sophisticated. Due to the volume and complexity, man cannot fight them alone. Human analysts are no match for today s advanced threats, which vigorously act to avoid detection, often lying undiscovered for months. This is where virtual analysts come in, to perform the grunt work, including: Gathering, analyzing, and prioritizing information Sifting daily alerts, and synthesizing them to create a forensic timeline for an incident Documenting every step of the investigation and facilitating information sharing Continuously reviewing evidence to confirm or refute attacks, transforming thousands of leads into a handful of prioritized incidents that tell the attack story Streamlining the process and improving SOC efficiency By freeing up human analysts of routine and repetitive tasks, and eliminating human errors, the human pros can more effectively handle the work that require human experience and insight, including: Dive deeper into incidents, for example, by analyzing the content of suspicious network traffic Check open source intelligence for additional information on detected threats Run additional forensic investigations on endpoints and network for additional evidence collection Suggesting how to respond, remediate, or contain the threats/attacks With automated investigations, companies can now stop scrambling to put out cyber fires.

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.

West Midlands Police to trial self-service crime reporting platform

Budget cuts West Midlands Police has announced plans to introduce self-service crime reporting as part of cost-cutting measures. Chief Constable David Thompson said online methods of crime reporting for less serious offences was being explored as part of efficiency savings. However, England and Wales Police Federation chairman Steve White described the proposals as barmy .

People will not be forced to use the service, but they will be presented with it as an extra option. Under the plans, members of the public and small-business owners would be able to submit their own statements for less serious offences such as criminal damage, shoplifting and bilking, where people leave a shop or garage without paying, according to Thompson. As part of their submission they would have the option of uploading digital evidence, such as images captured by their smartphone, to the platform. West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson said: We need to be at the cutting edge that enables those who want to be able to report crimes online to do so. Vulnerable victims would be directed to 999 or 101 services, he added. But White said it was another example of chief constables recognising that they do not have the resources to do the basics.
