BSIA issues guide to metal theft prevention

BSIA issues guide to metal theft prevention The BSIA has produced a guide to help security professionals and property owners combat the growing spate of metal thefts across the UK. Metal theft is an ongoing problem in the UK and realises a significant loss to the economy, with the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) estimating it to cost the UK’s finances no less than 770 million every year. In light of this growing spate of criminality, the British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has published a guide to help property owners of varying types tackle the problem.

Metal thieves have a wide range of targets including rail and communications infrastructure, public utilities, metal piping and lead roofing on churches and schools (and even bronze plaques from war memorials). Stealing the metals for their extrinsic value, these opportunists are regularly finding new ways to source valuable materials and sell them on illegally. The BSIA s new guide serves to highlight just how much of an impact this crime is having across the UK and provides a variety of security solutions that could successfully discourage or catch these thieves.

Featuring real life success stories provided by member companies of the BSIA, the solutions outlined in the guide include physical security equipment, asset and property marking, CCTV, intruder alarm systems and access control. The guide includes a wide range of Case Studies showing how these different security solutions have helped protect properties or trace culprits ranging from protecting vacant properties to safeguarding drain covers and securing businesses and homes. Unacceptable criminality with significant consequences Metal theft is an unacceptable crime with significant consequences, and it’s important that we respond forcefully and in a timely manner to this serious threat, explained Geoff Knupfer, chairman of the BSIA s Asset and Property Marking Section.

Marking your property with a forensic coding solution can act as a successful deterrent to thieves and, if your property is stolen, the traceable nature of the solution can help return materials to their rightful owners and provide conclusive evidence in support of criminal prosecution. In 2011 the Government acknowledged the severity of this issue when the Home Office decided to establish a task force led by the British Transport Police with the help of a 5 million boost from the Treasury. However, it’s still extremely important that property owners implement their own security measures in order to affect positive change.

Metal theft can be detrimental to all types of infrastructures, and dealing with the repercussions can be costly and time consuming, warned David Frampton, chairman of the BSIA s Physical Security Equipment Section. Effective security measures, such as physical security, can offer peace of mind to the general public with property owners safe in the knowledge that their equipment is protected when left unattended.

and the growing insider threat

Info4Security Web Exclusive Fraud… and the growing insider threat How can you reduce the risk of fraud and the insider threat in your business regime? Andy May offers salient and timely advice for practising security professionals.

While organisations spend considerable sums of money in protecting themselves from those security threats that come from outside of their businesses, how many actually take the time to consider the threat from within? According to Kroll Advisory Solutions 1 , acts of fraud perpetrated by insiders remain one of the biggest threats to a company s information and assets. Across Europe, in 2011-2012 Kroll has identified that 63% of companies were affected by fraud.

This figure is slightly higher than the global average (of 61%), but is an improvement on the figure for 2010-2011 (which stood at 71%). The areas of frequent loss centre on the theft of physical assets (23%) and information theft, loss or attack (18%). Average percentage of revenue loss For those companies affected, the average percentage of revenue lost due to fraud amounted to 0.8% of revenue in 2011-2012, down from 2% in 2010-2011.

It’s believed that this latter figure only represents the direct losses – the consequential losses are obviously likely to be much higher. Of further significance in the Kroll report is the fact that information theft is now the most common form of fraud on a global basis, with 27% of businesses reporting incidents in the past year. Perhaps not unsurprisingly, hardest hit among those businesses were those in the financial services sector (where there’s a 42% hit rate).

This perhaps underlines the importance and value of financial data to external criminal elements, as well as for direct personal gain by the individual or individuals committing the fraud. In the current economic climate the cost of fraud to the UK economy is significant. In its annual Fraud Indicator report for 2012, the National Fraud Authority 2 suggests that the cost of fraud to the UK economy is as high as 73 billion.

This is further broken down into the private sector ( 45.5 billion), the public sector ( 20.1 billion), individuals ( 6.1 billion) and the not for profit sector ( 1.1 billion). The National Fraud Authority estimates that the cost to private sector business in the UK due to fraud is 1.4% of total turnover. Greatest losses suffered due to fraud The Wholesale and Retail Trade industry commands the highest level of turnover in the UK economy and also suffers the greatest losses due to fraud.

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) published the results of its Retail Crime Survey 2011 in January this year. The survey reported that fraud increased significantly in the past year, with 78% of retailers recording a rise. Fraud accounted for 12.3% of retail crime by the number of incidents and 28.2% of retail crime by cost – a notable increase on the previous year.

These figures clearly identify the scale of the problem that the UK faces in economic terms. Worth noting is the fact that over 50% of the losses in the public sector are due to tax fraud, in turn demonstrating the cost to individual tax payers. The primary enablers of fraud Frauds do not happen by accident.

Indeed, there are three primary enablers identified that allow a fraud to take place. With all of them there is some degree of overlap. Insider enablers These are generally people who have access to the organisation s assets and systems, or are able to influence the outcomes of organisational processes.

Principally this will be an employee; however it could include contractors, consultants and volunteers. Insiders have been responsible for some of the biggest losses recorded. Most topical is the recent case involving UBS and an alleged rogue trader which cost the bank more than 1.5 billion.

Identity fraud In the main this is an enabler that impacts on individuals. However, identity fraud has been used as a means of fraudulently gaining employment and then allowing exploitation of an organisation s assets and systems from the inside. Cyber enablers This is effectively where the Internet is used to facilitate access to an organisation s assets to commit fraud.

It’s an area where there’s still much work to be done to fully quantify the extent and impact. Perhaps the scale of the problem identifies the challenge in preventing and stopping fraud. Reducing vulnerabilities to the insider threat In terms of business fraud one of the key ways to prevent this is to reduce the vulnerabilities due to the insider threat.

This is not as easy as it sounds, but there are some key approaches that can be taken. These include: Risk assessment: Consider carrying out a business-wide risk assessment to identify those areas of threat that an insider can exploit. This is very much about balancing trust in allowing access to assets to achieve their goal with recognition of the damage that could be done if this is exploited.

Employee screening: An important area of recruitment that should identify the potential insider threat. This needs to be based on the access levels identified in the risk assessment and carried out for every new employee. It’s also recommended that rescreening is carried out at periodic intervals in a person s employment specifically in relation to financial risk.

Clearly documented and enforced policies and procedures that define the controls: If policies are not enforced they will not be followed. Periodic security awareness training for all employees: This will instil a ‘security aware’ culture. Monitor and respond to suspicious or disruptive behaviour: Behaviour change is often a good indicator of activity taking place that may be illegal.

It should however always be remembered that this may be due to personal stressors and not just possible illegal activity. Anticipate and manage negative workplace issues: Many employees only become engaged in illegal activity when circumstances in their employment change. The impact of change on employees must always be considered and, ideally, the risk assessment process should be repeated.

Secure the physical environment: Most employees and contractors do not need access to the whole premises for their day-to-day work. Where possible, restrict access to key areas of the workplace to only those employees that need to go there and, if possible, track their movements within the building. Implement and enforce strict password and account management policies.

Deactivate computer access as soon as an employee leaves. Develop an insider incident response plan. By implementing some of these security measures businesses can vastly reduce the risk of fraud being committed by insiders and avoid the potentially large commercial and reputational costs associated with it.

Concerns over new law on security guards ::

On 18 October the Law on Security Guards came into force. The law which extends the powers of private security guards with regard to use of force and special means has been strongly criticized by human rights workers.

From now on private security guards are allowed to carry out searches of likely offenders, use physical force, special means and even dogs. Over the next 6 months the Cabinet of Ministers is supposed to specify which special means may be used. MP Oleh Novikov, member of the Parliamentary Committee on Crime-fighting Issues says that firearms are definitely not meant, and adds that security guards will have handcuffs, non-police use gas and rubber batons.

According to Serhiy Shabovta, Head of the Ukrainian Federation of Security Professionals it is possible that guards may carry and use shock pistols which are from a legal point of view regarded as special means. He says however that not all guards will receive these weapons, but only large firms where there are security points and response groups.

According to lawyer Vasyl Bilous, the new law could do with fine-tuning, but the main thing is that for virtually the first time in Ukraine there is a document clearly regulating not only who a private guard is and what kind of property is guarded, but which also sets out the rules for such security activities. A person may be searched only with their consent and only their personal things, for example, a bag, not pockets or clothing. Force and special means may only be used if verbal warnings have had no effect. If a person is injured, medical assistance must be provided. Security guards must immediately inform the police of any incidents.

Control over the activities of private security guards has been seriously heightened. And even action will receive a legal assessment .

Ludmila Klochko, lawyer and head of the Kharkiv Human Rights Group Public Advice Centre, on the other hand, warns that the law will result in an increase in the number of enforcement structures which can deprive people of their liberty. She points out that the law does not envisage stripping a security firm of its licence should they have infringed people s rights and legitimate interests.

Ludmila Klochko believes that from now on any protester taking part in, for example, the peaceful protests against the unlawful felling of trees in Gorky Park or construction is in danger of being detained by private guards including with the use of special means. Those with money have received a legal opportunity to guard themselves very well without any police bodies. Given the high level of police corruption, they will be able to get away with anything.

Global Security Summit: Kit Malthouse to speak on Mayor’s Apprenticeships campaign

Global Security Summit: Kit Malthouse to speak on Mayor’s Apprenticeships campaign Kit Malthouse – the Deputy Mayor for London – will be delivering an address on the Mayor s Apprenticeships Campaign at next week s Global Security Summit. With responsibility for business and enterprise a key part of his own portfolio, Kit Malthouse will set out how City Hall has led on a campaign with London s employers which has seen the number of apprenticeships in the Capital double. Speaking at 10.10 am on 11 October at London s Olympia Exhibition and Conference Centre, Malthouse will highlight the value that apprenticeships can bring to business and the importance of encouraging more SME employers to build apprenticeships into their workforce planning and structure.

London s Deputy Mayor will be followed at the lectern by SSR Personnel s managing director Peter French MBE, himself a Skills for Security Board member and a past Master of Global Security Summit partner The Worshipful Company of Security Professionals. He ll be reviewing the wider role of apprenticeships. Simon Banks, group managing director and co-founder of CSL DualCom, will then offer his own views on apprenticeships in the security sector (having joined the industry as one himself, and subsequently helping to build CSL DualCom from scratch into the 35 million business that it is today).

Banks, of course, was also one of the founders of last year s hugely successful 100 in 100 apprenticeships drive across the security sector which has continued to gain ground (and further ministerial approval, more of which anon) in 2012. Mike Britnell, interim CEO at Skills for Security, will underline the important role to be played by the security industry in enabling young people to find work and develop career paths by taking on apprentices. Britnell will explain where there s funding for the development of security apprentices, and outline the benefits to employers of using apprenticeships to build their businesses (particularly in those areas where, traditionally, apprentices are not considered the way to start a career).

Awareness around the value of apprenticeships Since the launch of the first 100 in 100 campaign at IFSEC International in May 2011, Skills for Security, CSL DualCom and UBM have been working in tandem to raise awareness of the value of apprenticeships within the security sector. The inaugural campaign was so successful – 155 apprentices were signed up by the time of last October s Security Excellence Awards that the decision was swiftly taken to go again in 2012. Pleasingly, the founding partners are on target to achieve a similar result this year.

According to Skills for Security, the AGE grant of 1,500 to support employers who take on apprentices they could not otherwise afford has been a great help. Recognition by John Hayes MP (the former skills minister) of the security industry leading the first business sector 100 in 100 campaign inspired Skills for Security s CEO David Greer to request a round table meeting at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. This meeting took place last month and, as has been reported on Info4Security, Matthew Hancock MP (the new skills minister) listened carefully to the suggestions made by various security employers on ways to make apprenticeships work even better for the sector.

Working with aforementioned Skills Board member Peter French, the training and skills body now has the opportunity to reach greater numbers of employers and promote the Providing Security Services apprenticeship more widely to the security guarding sector in London. Apprenticeships at the Bank of England One of the security profession s leading and highly respected practitioners is, of course, Don Randall MBE, director of security at the Bank of England. It s good to see apprenticeships coming back to the forefront of the debate in both political and business circles, commented Randall in conversation with Info4Security.

Several years ago they were at the core of the working world, and they need to be back there. Randall referred to the stereotypical nature of the security profession in days gone by, in that its membership would typically consist of those with a military or law enforcement background. Today s world demands new skills, he said, such as knowledge of business continuity and audit.

We can put individuals in place now on apprenticeship schemes so that they re able to learn the profession of security from a young age. As a result of taking such a course of action, Randall s a firm believer history will show this engenders a greater diversity across security in terms of its employment cohort. We should experiment by engaging with new and different communities, explained the former police superintendent, deputy head of the Fraud Squad and Master of The Worshipful Company of Security Professionals.

It s almost as if we should be following the path of the police three decades ago when a conscious effort was made to look at gender and race mixes within the service. Working in tandem with Skills for Security The Bank of England numbers 130 security staff among its ranks, and there has been constant liaison between Randall and his team and the bank s welfare specialists around the apprenticeships issue. The existing workforce are all for apprenticeships, enthused Randall.

They see it as a big, big plus-point. We then checked with senior management and they gave the go-ahead. Subsequently, we spoke to Skills for Security around logistics and determined that we want to provide opportunities for young people.

Just now, Randall and his colleagues are engaging with youngsters in some London Boroughs. We re working with them on CVs and the whole recruitment process, urged Randall. In an ideal world, each year we d like to take on two apprentices and one graduate to become part of the security team at the Bank of England.

We want the first apprentice to be on our books by year end. In conclusion, Randall stated with tangible purpose: Our motivation is to have a workforce that s diverse in both age and ethnicity. There s no doubt that, as part of this mix, apprentices add enormous value to the team.
