What is surveillance?

Surveillance is the continuous gathering of health data needed to monitor the population’s health status in order to provide or revise needed services. Note the words “dissemination…to those who need to know” in both definitions. This means that collection of health data without sharing and using those data is NOT surveillance.

A little story:

When one of us asked the Ministry of Health staff if they had good communicable disease surveillance data, they proudly took him to a large closet, opened the door, and showed him stacks from floor to ceiling of yellow, moulding surveillance forms which had been completed and submitted to the Ministry over the past years. He asked if anyone had ever looked at these forms, and they acted very surprised at such a bizarre idea.

In sum, surveillance is data for action. If you don’t plan to take any action, don’t waste your time doing surveillance. If you need to take action, but need data to do so, consider surveillance as one of the data collection methods available.

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.

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.

6. Adam Stroud, CEO, Paxton Adam Stroud, who began his Paxton career 20 years ago on the factory production line, is now at the helm of a company that made it into the illustrious FT1000, an index of the 1,000 fastest growing companies in Europe. The company has also been named as one of the London Stock Exchange s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain.

Paxton s turnover has grown by 13m in three years, a rise of more than 65%, while profits have grown 50% year on year since Stroud became CEO in 2012. His admirers credit Stroud with driving Paxton s company s ethos, which is centred on simplicity and quality. Adam has also helped Paxton pre-empt and react to the proliferation of on-demand services and developments in smartphone capability. Adam has overseen international expansion with Paxton opening offices in the US, France, Germany, Benelux, South Africa and the UAE. Stroud has also overseen the introduction of IP technology to its Net2 system. He has also recognised the synergy between access control and door entry to introduce Net2 Entry to the market, and more recently bringing access control and building automation together to create net10. Adam was actively involved in the debate that advances in consumer technology meant that customers now expected their security systems to work seamlessly together.

Aware of the growing demand for smart buildings, essentially systems that interact with other building facilities such as lighting and heating, Adam has strived to make the security industry aware of the business opportunity that exists for installers who choose to diversify into building automation.
