My Current role is a Close Protection officer on a contract Southern Afghanistan. I ve worked in the current role since April 2013

  • Tell us a bit about your background? What was one of the most enjoyable aspects of your job? Can you describe one of your most challenging aspects or one off events of your old role?

I am 33 years old. I was in the British Infantry for 15 years in total reaching the rank of CSGT. I ve been on 3 x tours of N.I, 1 x Kosovo, 1 x Iraq and 2 x Afghan. My last role was an Infantry Tactics instructor at The Infantry Battle School, Brecon. There I taught and assessed future section commanders of the British army all the key areas they needed to command a section of men in all types of hostile environments. My most challenging part of my army career was on operational tour on Herrick 10 Sangin.

There my role was a platoon Sgt and most of the time we as a battle group found ourselves engaged with the enemy on a daily basis.

  • How did you get into the Private Security Industry?

I decided that I had achieved all I wanted within the army and the Private Security sector was a natural progression for me. I could see that the skills I learnt through my army career could be used and built upon within the security industry. A few of my friends where in the Industry so I used their knowledge to find out which was the best close protection course around. Guys that had not even done the Phoenix course said that they wished they had gone on that one so I learnt by their mistakes really. The main selling point was that a member of HR would come and interview you at the end of course for future positions. Something you don;t get at any other company.

  • Please describe the experience you had with the training?

The overall experience of the training was outstanding. A point of note is that I also attend the Approved Tier 1 Operational Medic (ATOM) course after the Phoenix course. My main reason was that the instruction and the facilities of the close protection course were that good I was sold already in attending my next G4S specialist training course. In addition to that you receive a 25% discount on the ATOM course if you attended the Phoenix course.

I believe that G4S look after and employ people that attend their courses as they know the standard of training you have received is the best and G4S want the best people to work for them.

  • How would you describe yourself?

I would describe myself as a hardworking, diligent person who strives to better myself by using other people s experiences to learn from and adapt.

  • Could you give us a brief overview of your current role?

As a CP operator in Southern Afghanistan, I am responsible for the armed protection and security of our clients conducting business in Helmand Province. Conducting IBG tasking’s providing close protection to the client in out of district moves by Heli, foot and vehicle transits, responsible for risk and threat assessment in a constantly changing high threat environment

  • What are the most enjoyable aspects of your role?

The most enjoyable aspects of my role is when the tasking is complete and we as a team have achieved our aim, by providing the best possible security to the client.

  • Tell us about any challenging aspects?

The most challenging part of my role is the constant risk and threat assessment which is forever changing as you move by foot, heli or by vehicle with the client to ensure maximum protection.

  • What do you like to do in your spare time?

In my spare time I like to keep fit for role either cardio vascular work or weights. There is plenty of down time so it;s not a problem.

There is internet in all locations so talking back home on skype or face time to the family isn t an issue.

  • Please let us know anything else that may help other Service Leavers to follow in your footsteps?

Get yourselves on the Phoenix course and the ATOM course the extra medical course got me one step ahead of the rest of the guys and I was offered a job before I was even out of the army.

I had a week off as a civilian and then I was deployed to Afghanistan.

The future of video surveillance amid the rise of artificial intelligence

A vast majority of recorded video data is never viewed. This isn t for a lack of interesting content or inadequate resources, but rather a gradual decline in human attention spans. Adding more cameras increases the amount of video data collected, but if it s not viewed, the useful information is missed.

There is an imbalance between the amount of video data collected and the human attention available to effectively mine that data. As security technology continues to evolve, exciting developments are taking place with the inclusion of artificial intelligence (AI). Powerful tools are being created that will allow us to modify our approach to video search. Site-wide intelligence Effective search uses a wealth of data to find necessary information. A person conducting a search needs to answer who, what, when and where, not just in the context of a single camera, but across an entire site. This is where the need for AI comes in. Avigilon Appearance Search video analytics technology is a sophisticated deep learning AI search engine for video data. It sorts through hours of footage to quickly locate a specific person or vehicle across all cameras on a site. With this technology, users can initiate a search by simply clicking on a button and selecting to search for all instances of a person or vehicle of interest across recorded video.

embedded content Looking to the future Using AI in video search can help reduce hours of work to minutes, managing resources so that site security is more effective and efficient. The continued evolution of AI will provide security personnel with even more powerful tools not just for forensic purposes, but for real time event response. By designing video surveillance search technology to be as simple to use as searching the internet, Avigilon is better focusing human attention on what matters most, to dramatically change the way users interact with their security systems.

Avigilon Appearance Search technology is a sophisticated deep learning AI search engine that enables users to quickly locate a specific person or vehicle of interest across an entire site. Free download: The video surveillance report 2017 Sponsored by IDIS The Video Surveillance Report 2017 covers all things video surveillance based on a poll of hundreds of security professionals. Specifically looking at topics such as open platforms, 4K, low-light cameras, video analytics, warranties and this year due to the growing threat posed, the cybersecurity landscape.

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.
