UK government issues cybersecurity guidelines for connected cars

Cyber The Department for Transport has published cybersecurity guidelines for manufacturers of smart or connected cars. Written with help from the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure, the principles implore everyone in the automotive supply chain to collaborate during the design process and over software upgrades and maintenance long after cars hit the road. The authorities are concerned about the prospect of older vehicles running outdated software.

As cars become increasingly automated and ultimately, driverless the stakes will rise. Last year ethical hackers managed to wrest control of a Tesla Model S while the car was moving and slam on the brakes (see how they did it in the video below). Attacks can even inject malicious code into the electronic control units (ECUs) and controller-area-network (CAN) bus, which control critical systems such as electric steering and braking. Mark Noctor, VP EMEA, Arxan Technologies The eight principles, which were launched by transport minister Lord Callanan, follow: Organisational security is owned, governed and promoted at board level Security risks are assessed and managed appropriately and proportionately, including those specific to the supply chain Organisations need product aftercare and incident response to ensure systems are secure over their lifetime All organisations, including sub-contractors, suppliers and potential 3rd parties, work together to enhance the security of the system Systems are designed using a defence-in-depth approach The security of all software is managed throughout its lifetime The storage and transmission of data is secure and can be controlled The system is designed to be resilient to attacks and respond appropriately when its defences or sensors fail embedded content Connecting to WiFi and external devices via Bluetooth, Modern cars are increasingly smart . The communications and entertainment systems are particularly vulnerable to attack, and can be reverse engineered to access the API libraries that facilitate data sharing between systems, says Mark Noctor, VP EMEA at Arxan Technologies. From here attacks can even inject malicious code into the electronic control units (ECUs) and controller-area-network (CAN) bus, which control critical systems such as electric steering and braking. Preventing application code from being accessed and tampered is one of the biggest priorities in protecting a connected vehicle, and it is encouraging to see the government s guidelines specifically list the ability to protect code and ensure its integrity as key principles. Manufacturers must deploy code hardening measures to prevent attackers from accessing their source code and removing vital data such as cryptographic keys which can be used to access other systems. Anti-tampering measures should be hidden in the code to alert them if the code has been changed, and prevent systems from starting if alterations are detected.

The government announced the Autonomous and Electric Vehicles Bill, which will allow innovation to flourish and ensure the next wave of self-driving technology is invented, designed and operated safely in the UK , during the Queens Speech in June. The outcome of recent efforts by the US government to engage with US automakers over the issue do not augur well. Asked by a Senate committee if they supported mandatory privacy and safety standards, executives from Google, General Motors, Delphi and Lyft were evasive.

Code of practice launched for investigators of fire and explosions in criminal justice system

Guidance A new code of practice for the investigation of fires and explosions within the criminal justice system has been published. Developed by a multi-agency team led by the University of Dundee the new code is backed by the Chief Fire Officers Association, the Institution of Fire Engineers and the UK Association of Fire Investigators. The code, which was presented at the Scottish Fire Symposium at the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service Headquarters and Training Centre in Glasgow on 16 May, provides professional guidance for practitioners tasked with examining incidents where a crime is suspected.

The guidance is aimed at all such practitioners regardless of which agency they represent. The new code sets out to establish clear standards to aid in the gathering and examination of evidence in any investigation. Expert witnesses in criminal cases are now required to declare adherence to the code of practice. Consistency and quality This Code of Practice provides significant clarity as to what can reasonably be expected of those who investigate fires and is another significant step towards providing consistency and improved quality in this area, said Lee Howell, independent chairman of the Arson Prevention Forum. Arson remains one of the most difficult crimes to prosecute and improved investigation will undoubtedly assist to reduce the significant cost and consequence that Arson presents. Professor Niamh Nic Daeid of the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification at the University of Dundee chaired the multi-agency team that formulated the code of practice. The importance of this document cannot be underestimated, he said. It has taken six years to prepare as we consulted with the community of practitioners from across the UK and beyond to make sure that we represented their views of where they wanted their profession to aspire to in terms of competence, expertise and practice. The code will bring a standardised approach across the fire investigation sector in terms of good practice and understanding the obligations of being expert witnesses to the courts.

Dr Nick Carey, the President of the UK Association of Fire Investigators (UK-AFI), said: The UK-AFI is delighted to support the Code of Practice. Several of our members were involved with the preparation of the document and a large number of members provided valuable feedback during the consultation process. The document will provide valuable generic and UK specific guidance to fire investigators.

Fact or fiction?

Separating fire-safety myths from reality

When it comes to fire safety, it is important to separate fact from fiction. In this article we put some common myths to rest, as well as examining whether some notorious claims are in fact true or not. Fire alarms sound before a fire actually starts.

Fiction. Unless the fire alarm in question has developed a sixth sense, it will not be activated until a fire starts. However, modern fire alarms will usually detect a fire when it is still in the very early stages, if they have been fitted correctly and confirm to full fire regulations. There are different types of fire, or smoke, alarms available ranging from ionisation alarms (which tend to be cheaper and are sensitive to small particles of smoke) to heat alarms, which measure the temperature of their surroundings. The type of alarm you have will depend on where it is installed. A heat alarm is a great option for a kitchen, for example, as they are insensitive to smoke, whereas smoke sensitive alarms are likely to be set off more frequently by cooking. As long as my home or business is fitted with the necessary alarms and fire extinguishers, I am safe. Fiction. Yes it is essential that a home or business is fitted with the necessary fire equipment such as alarms or extinguishers.

However, it is also important to maintain these properly and to know how to use them in the event of a fire. If you have fire extinguishers on your premises, they need to be appropriate for their use what type will depend on what is in the building. If they would need to be used in an area heavy with electrical equipment such as a server room, for example, a CO2 fire extinguisher would be the best option. It is also important to make sure they are located in easy to reach areas, and that there is someone on the premises at all times who knows how to operate them. Alarms, whether at home or on business premises, must be regularly tested to ensure they are in full working order. This may involve regular fire drills, checking the batteries and assessing their location as your home or business expands. Photo: YomYomF.com Staff with fire-drill responsibilities in businesses and public places often use code words to notify staff of a fire. Fact. This one is usually true.

While it isn t compulsory for a business, or large place, to employ a code word to notify their staff of a fire, the use of one prevents panic spreading if there are a lot of other people around. One well-known example is the code Mr Sands or Inspector Sands , which is often used by businesses ranging from theatres to public transport authorities, including the London Underground. Several people report having heard an announcement summoning the elusive Inspector Sands to an area of the station, before being evacuated or hearing the announcement of a fire drill shortly afterwards. Although often talked about, the use of the code word still ensures a calmer atmosphere than announcing to the public there may be a fire, and ensures that staff on the premises can safely evacuate anyone present and deal with the matter calmly and quickly. Fire extinguishers will last until they are used. Fiction. Fire extinguishers, even if not used, will become less effective over time and will need to be replaced at intervals. There is no specific time frame for this as it depends on the type of extinguishes, but most manufacturers will suggest replacing them every 5 to 15 years, as well as keeping them in good working condition. Even if not used, if your fire extinguisher shows any damage to the hose or handle, or the locking pin is missing, it will need to be replaced immediately.

It should also be regularly checked for any leakage, or corrosion to the body of the extinguisher, and the pressure gauge should be monitored. If the pressure gauge drops, you need a new fire extinguisher. Fire extinguishers should always have a sticker on display that indicates when their most recent check was as well as a record of any maintenance carried out.

Steubenville Schools Add Unarmed Security Guards | WBNS-10TV …

An eastern Ohio school district has added unarmed security guards to its buildings amid increased attention over two high school football players who are facing rape charges.

The superintendent of Steubenville City Schools said Tuesday the district has posted a guard at each of the school’s four buildings to improve students’ safety.

Superintendent Mike McVey said the decision to add guards came Monday, before the schools were placed on lockdown Tuesday morning. Teachers stopped instruction and locked their classroom doors for about 90 minutes while police determined the threat wasn’t viable.

A police report said a student described seeing a Facebook post indicating a potential threat, but the post couldn’t be retrieved.

The football players are accused of raping a 16-year-old girl. Their lawyers deny the charges.

Security guard docked over Ogbono, Okporoko theft

BY Bartholomew Madukwe

LAGOS A 29-year-old man, Muhammed Lawal, has been arraigned before an Ojo Magistrate Court in Lagos, over alleged theft of Ogbono valued at N25,000 and other food items totaling N60,000.

Lawal, who is facing a two-count-charge of burglary and stealing, was said to have unlawfully entered a building where food items were kept and committed the crime.

The prosecutor, ASP Friday Eze, informed the court that the accused, of 14 Ajoke Street, Cele Ajangbadi, while on duty as a market security guard on September 3 at 5am, at shop LL Gate market Ajangbadi, burgled the shop of one Emmanuel Mba, a foodstuff seller at the market.

Eze said the accused, who was on duty on that day, was reported by some residents of the area, who claimed to have seen the accused burgling the shop of the complainant.

He was alleged to have taken about 50 pieces of stock fish, popularly called Okporoko, valued N20,000, and a carton of dried fish, valued N15,000.

According to the prosecutor, the accused was later arrested and detained in police custody. The alleged offences contravened Sections 285 and 307 of the Criminal Code Laws of Lagos State.

However, when the plea of the accused was taken before the open court, he pleaded not guilty.

The Magistrate, Mr. T. Shomade, granted the accused N50,000 bail, with two sureties in like sum and adjourned the matter to November 12 for mention.

Family Of 2011 Homicide Victim Hires Private Investigator | WBNS …

Frustrated with the progress of the official investigation, the family of an 89-year-old Chillicothe man turned to a private investigator to take a second look at the case.

A private investigator claimed the Ross County Sheriff s Office has not properly handled the case surrounding the death of Harry Smith.

Smith, 89, was found dead inside a burned home in October 2011. At the time, investigators said that they believed the cause of death was arson, though Smith s cause of death was unclear.

Eight months later, Smith s death was declared a homicide.

I believe with all my heart this family has done far more investigation than anyone else involved, Family spokeswoman Andrea Smith said.

The family hired the investigative firm, the Lycurgus Group, run by a retired Columbus homicide detective, who looked into the case.

The whole insinuation that he could have done this to himself is completely heinous, smith said. It went on for six months and that is when we decided we need outside help.

Smith shared a report with 10TV that alleged the Ross County Sheriff s Office failed to interview key witnesses and protect evidence.

Smith said that she hopes the report will prove another agency needs to take the lead on the case.

I am more worried about successful prosecution because of the way this has been handled. That is why the family is insisting on BCI’s involvement, Smith said.

10TV s calls to the Ross County Sheriff s Office were not returned.
