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 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!

Door Entry IP: There s no margin at the lower end of the residential access control market so installers are flocking to us

With IFSEC International just a few days away, we spoke to Graham Oliver, managing director of Door Entry IP, which is exhibiting at the security trade show. Hatfield-based Door Entry IP, which supports custom installers with home access control systems, will be on stand C1435 in London ExCeL between 20-22 June 2017. IFSEC Global: What products and solutions you will showcasing at the event?

Graham Oliver: We re going to be showing a range of products from a German manufacturer called Siedle. This year we were hoping for higher contact with the installers from what s called the custom install industry, the AV industry. We supply a lot of equipment to AV installers because our kit is definitely at the top end. If it were a car it would start at Mercedes C Class level and the range goes upwards from there. Siedle all about design, finish, performance and reliability What they will see on our stand is internal intercoms finished in leather, for example. And marine-grade stainless steel entry panels as standard. So very different to what security installers are expecting. They re used to commodity products. IG: So what kind of people are you looking to meet?

GO: We re keen to see architects and specifiers, because once they see the product they tend to fall in love with it. That s how most of our business comes in; it s specified. When it s designed into a building solution, that s just one of Siedle s strengths. For example, we can supply an entire entryway with letterboxes integrated, matching the exact finish of the building exterior and much more. So, it becomes part of the building rather than something incongruous stuck on the building afterwards. That stage is often where the security industry becomes involved but we re seeing more and more that they are becoming involved in the bigger projects and dealing more closely with the AV sector. I guess that s the way IFSEC is going to be honest. That s why it s of interest to us. IG: What kind of end customers are you seeing?

GO: We re talking about a complete cross section. We supplied the entry panels for One Hyde Park and many projects throughout London And we re getting involved in larger developments now. Previously it was high end homes. IG: Going back to your stand, do you have any exciting plans for how it will work? GO: It s going to be operational. One thing we do that s very different to others is when someone comes to the entrance door they get the standard camera every time. They push a button, and the image captured is shown on the screen inside. But we have different types of camera to suit. So, if a camera has to be mounted at a certain height, for example in a DDA application, we have integrated cameras with much wider angles including 180 We deliver as standard true day-night cameras.

With a movable IR filter, it is as crystal clear at night-time, in the dark, as it is during the day. Others don t do it at all, but we do that as standard. Our stainless steel panels aren t just stainless steel, because stainless steel isn t stainless it does rust. It s all marine-grade stainless steel as standard. You can just see the difference in the basic finish. We want to show people that door entry doesn t have to be just a commodity product; it can be designed and installed into upmarket properties and importantly installers can make money out of it by treating this are as a profit centre not as a nuisance. They also stand out from other installers. IG: How does your relationship work with people integrating and installing the system? GO: Our job at Door Entry IP Ltd is to support Siedle throughout the UK.

So we do it from start to finish. So, let s say an enquiry starts with an architect, and eventually the project is awarded to the security installer, electrical contractor, AV installer, whoever is going to perform the installation. They ve won the project, they ask: what are we going to do now? So we offer them training courses for free. And we tailor that as close to their project as possible. We assist with all cable layouts and the rest of the stuff and hold their hand all the way through. Our plan is to get repeat business, and the only way to do that is to give the service to match our price level. Our cabling is as easy as it is with lower end commodity systems. They can be conventional bus systems, they can be IP systems, but we re not doing anything different in that direction.

So the skills of the engineers don t have to be different. It s just that we do things with products in a slightly different way, but the installation side is, if anything, perhaps a bit easier. IG: Is there anything else you want to add? GO: We re seeing the trade moving upmarket because over time more and more competitors have been fighting at the lower end and there s no longer any margin in it for them. It s what happened in the alarm industry a number of years ago. So installers are looking to move into other areas to generate a profit and we re a really good leapfrog into the AV industry.

Vanderbilt to demonstrate SPC Connect and ACT365 at IFSEC 2017

Cloud-based solutions At IFSEC International 2017, being held 20-22 June in London s ExCeL, Vanderbilt will be exhibiting its cloud-based security products and services. Alongside Vanderbilt s access control, intrusion and video products, the company will also be demonstrating SPC Connect, which allows installers to monitor, manage, and maintain Vanderbilt SPC panels remotely from portable electronic devices including smartphones. Also on display will be ACT365, Vanderbilt s integrated access control and video management system, which allows for remote setup, servicing and support.

Both are cloud-based so the power, scalability and simplicity of the cloud can be leveraged for the delivery of new features. Joe Grillo, CEO of Vanderbilt, says: Having transformed other areas of business and industry, the cloud is now set to revolutionise the security industry. The cloud is the name given to computing functions and services hosted off-site. These tend to be provided as a service and can be accessed over any internet-enabled device. Market research firm IDC recently estimated that cloud services will grow 24% to $122 billion ( 94 billion) in 2017. Of this, software-as-a-service business applications, such as Vanderbilt s SPC Connect and ACT365, will attract 60% of all cloud spending. The cloud lets security installers set up, manage and maintain large, networked security systems remotely, so they can reduce site visits, saving time and money, by addressing service issues that can be resolved remotely instead. embedded content End-users benefit from a system that can be maintained more efficiently and reconfigured and adapted as their requirements change. Cloud-based security products and offerings from Vanderbilt help integrate core security functions such as access control, intrusion and video.

As an example, ACT365 allows remote verification of a building s visitor from real-time video images captured at the point of entry. Access can then be granted remotely. If a door is forced or an alarm is activated, ACT365 gives users immediate recall and locates recorded footage of the incident. This eliminates time and effort traditionally required to match up times on different security systems and sift through camera footage to locate an incident. Borrowing from the pay-as-you-go model common to most cloud services, Vanderbilt s cloud-based solutions are affordable and offer flexibility for growing organisations. Vanderbilt is sharing its expertise in cloud-based security solutions in a presentation called Cloud on the Horizon: Are you prepared? that will address a range of topics and provide advice for those seeking to integrate their security needs with cloud computing. Check out the latest security solutions from Vanderbilt at IFSEC International, 20-22 June 2017, London ExCeL. You can find them on stand E1225.
