Security to be tightened at Christmas markets amid fears of Berlin-style attack

COUNTER TERROR Security will be bolstered at forthcoming Christmas markets around the UK as councils aim to prevent a repeat of the Berlin attack that left 12 dead and 56 injured last year. Concrete bollards, armed police and random bag searches are among the measures being considered by police and local councils. The Local Government Association is reported to have urged councils to adhere to government guidance on protecting crowded places from attack.

Some Christmas market organisers are working with police to provide anti-terror training to staff as part of Project Griffin, a counter-terrorism initiative aimed at businesses. Depending on the terror threat level currently severe (an attack is highly likely) at the time, armed officers could be stationed around markets perimeter. Councils are stressing, however, that an armed police presence does not necessarily mean that an attack is imminent. Demand for concrete bollards has surged in the last two years following a series of attacks including incidents in Nice, Berlin and London Bridge where terrorists have weaponised vehicles in order to inflict mass casualties. Physical barriers were installed on three of London s bridges in the wake of June s terror attack at London Bridge and Borough Market. A Southampton city council spokesman has confirmed that concrete bollards will be installed ahead of 11 November when the city s own Christmas market opens. However, temporary outdoor events like Christmas markets and street festivals also require temporary solutions and the market is responding. ATG Access, for instance, has launched a lightweight road block system that can be deployed quickly and withstand the force of a 2,500kg vehicle traveling at 30 miles per hour. Avon Barrier Corporation, another UK firm, is even considering how to provide protection from gunfire.

Speaking to Arab News in August, Paul Jeffrey, the company s managing director, said: We are also looking at advertising boarding, so you incorporate some kind of ballistic protection within an advertising boarding so people run and hide. I am working on some very big projects that include that sort of thing. In London, the Metropolitan Police Service has said that additional safety measures around Christmas markets like Hyde Park s Winter Wonderland are likely. The public may see additional protective security measures and barriers at events this year, in response to a number of vehicle-based terrorist attacks we have sadly seen both here in the UK and abroad, said a force spokesman. There could also be increased security checks at some events and venues so we advise the public to arrive in plenty of time to allow for this. Guidance for mitigating security vulnerabilities around major public transport hubs, recently issued by the Department for Transport to local authorities, also incorporated recommendations about deterring attackers using vehicles as a weapon . German Christmas markets have proliferated in the UK in the last two decades and are regularly packed with people, day and night. Free Download: Securing the UK s borders.

The key to supply chain security: How to protect your data

The landscape of security and access control has changed markedly over the last decade with the introduction of technology that allows for traceability and time management of mechanical keys. This has changed the conversation and passkeys, cryptographic keys and encryption keys are all becoming more commonplace. By default, we ve become obsessed with cybersecurity and high-profile cases of data theft and loss are rife.

Research shows that 93% of large organisations and 87% of small businesses experienced a security breach in 2013, with affected companies experiencing roughly 50% more breaches than in 2012. Although keys provide access to critical assets, including servers that hold customer data, and offices where customers accounts are managed, we see many organisations that don t know how many keys they have in circulation, or where they are at any given time. The supply chain For organisations handling any kind of data, great importance must be placed on resilience within the supply chain. When considering exposure to risk, physical supply chain management presents a number of unique challenges. Add to this the complex risks that cybersecurity poses, and ensuring a safe supply chain environment can seem like an impossible task. How stable are your suppliers, do you know where they get their products from, how safe and protected are their assets, and how robust are their own relationships with their suppliers? Mitigating risk can involve identifying dependencies and vulnerabilities that can impact on supply chains. Increasing the visibility of these areas allows organisations to anticipate their impact and plan for contingencies. Data protection When it comes to the security of your data, areas that need to be considered include: What information are you sharing within your supply chain?

Where is the data located? What are your suppliers doing with that information? Are they reselling that data? Is there a data controller and processing agreement in place? Are they prepared enough to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)? Enforcement date: 25 May 2018. How would you deal with a data breach? The GDPR is a binding legislative act that will come into force across the EU (including the UK) next year. The regulation seeks to harmonise inconsistent data protection laws currently operating in the EU s member states and aims to facilitate the secure, free flow of data.

If an organisation fails to comply with the regulation it could be fined up to 4% of the company s global annual turnover and could severely damage its reputation. The secure option To combat these risks, Abloy UK offers a high level of both physical protection, with its high-quality locking solutions and data protection using only accredited software and infrastructure providers, compliant with European and National standards for physically secure key systems. PROTEC2 CLIQ, an electronic key system where all power is retained by the key or locks themselves, requires no wiring; users can change permissions, profiles, schedules and validity and revoke use at the CLIQ of a button; organisations can comprehensively track and audit who has access to which locations, when they had access and how often; and uses three factor authentications standard 256-bit encryption, advanced encryption and industry standard SHA-2 SSL certificates. When it comes to data security within your supply chain don t leave anything to chance, mitigate the potential risks in advance and only use suppliers you can be sure will keep your data secure.

The panomorph lens will imitate human eyesight and empower AI

ImmerVision is a one-of-a-kind company intent on persuading the security industry that its patented panomorph lens is far superior to the widely used fisheye lens. Founded in France in 2000, the company has a large and expanding ecosystem of tech partners, with many surveillance camera developers using its 360-degree panomorph technology. Louis Brun, director of marketing and communications at ImmerVision at the time of the interview (he has since moved on from the company), spoke to IFSEC Global about the applications of 360-degree panomorph lenses including for drones, body-worn video and artificial intelligence and ImmerVision s mission to expound its benefits in the security market and beyond.

IFSEC Global: How did IFSEC 2017 go for ImmerVision? Louis Brun: This year at the show we focused on the latest commercially available 4K panomorph lenses and the launch of new 4K panomorph cameras. The 4K lenses are from Evitar and CBC Computar which are supplying to several camera manufacturers. Because of the availability of these high definition 4k lenses, several manufacturers decided to come out with new products during the show. For example, VIVOTEK came out with a new 4K panomorph camera. If you don t have electroninc image stabilisation, what s the point of a body-worn camera? Are you going to put that on an officer and ask them not to move? We also showed Dahua with their latest 4k panomorph camera, also Hanwha, FLIR, Sony, Brickcom, Vista and many others. The image quality from all of these cameras offers edge-to-edge clarity, consistency and no drop in resolution.

All panomorph cameras are instantly compatible with over 50 VMS software partners. In our demos, we showed live video from the 4K cameras and everyone who saw it was really impressed. The cool thing is that you can see people even their faces as they move around the floor at IFSEC. IG: So IFSEC seems like a great place meet everyone all at once? LB: Absolutely. IFSEC is a key venue for us to meet all our partners and new partners. It is a great place to promote our partners and the fact there s a better alternative to fisheye lenses. I m not putting down anyone who has the fisheye solution; it might work for them. But a lot of people are not satisfied with fisheye.

Every day we have a lot of visitors who are wondering how they can integrate 360. When we show integrators and distributors that there s another option to fisheye, they say: Oh my God, we can get this quality ? IFSEC is the perfect opportunity to educate people and talk about how this technology can help them. IG: Are any other companies doing what ImmerVision does? LB: There are no other technology companies focused on 360 like us. Our technology is being leveraged by several companies in other industries for example ACER with their launch of the Holo360 camera or Motorola and their Mod 360 camera. There are also 6K panomorph broadcast cameras which filmed the Superbowl. I can say that we are world s specialist in 360-degree technology. IG: What about the body-worn video market?

LB: There were quite a few at IFSEC. I have noticed two things about the solutions on the market. Most of them weren t using a quality super wide angle lens. They have some quality on there, but they were lacking one thing which in my humble opinion is important: electronic image stabilisation. Given the variety of off-the-shelf panomorph lenses, you re giving a lot of flexibility to manufacturers to find the combination of cost and resolution they want. If you don t have that, what s the point of a body-worn camera? Are you going to put that on an officer and ask them not to move? They re not the Queen s Guards! Electronic image stabilisation is part of our image processing algorithm.

We showcased how that and our latest panomorph lens are implemented in a body-worn camera solution. The lens used in the body-worn reference design can give you up to 21MP in resolution. It s the size of a one pence coin. That 21MP lens is designed to work with several types of sensors from OmniVision, Sony and Samsung. This gives great flexibility and potential to manufacturers. IG: I m guessing the panomorph lens would be invaluable in the drone market? LB: The drone market is interesting and certain companies are now looking at panomorph lens technology, because again, the quality, the size, so many software solutions are compatible and our ecosystem has probably doubled in two years. This would include chip, sensor, module and product manufacturers. IG: If the panormorph lens is superior performance-wise to fisheye, is it not more expensive too?

LB: The technology has been designed to be competitive and to outperform fisheye. Given the variety of off-the-shelf panomorph lenses, you re giving a lot of flexibility to manufacturers to find the combination of cost and resolution they want. Moreover, those cameras are instantly compatible with any software system in the world. Overall, many of our partners are recognising the value that using our technology brings to them and to the market. We are bringing tools to enable manufacturers to create really cool products which are easily integrated across security, consumer, aerospace, AI, automotive, drones and more. IG: What are the possibilities of this technology in the near future and beyond? LB: There was a big announcement at IFA Berlin about a product using our technology solutions: the first 360 360 camera with LTE, the Holo360. This camera will capture full 360 images that can be shares live online. We re also being pulled into artificial intelligence, robots, drones The panomorph lens will imitate human eyesight and enable an evolution in AI.
