Consolidating all Security Activities to Create a New, Business Enabling Security Department
14:20 - 15:05
Consolidating all Security Activities to Create a New, Business Enabling Security Department

Security at Philips was fragmented and seen as a cost center. Seven members of the ExCo had a responsibility for a security department. Our job was to consolidate these activities into one group security function with a ExCo member as the owner and show the benefits.
Next to the possible cost savings of the consolidation of functions, i.e. removal of double roles, we had to show an additional benefit; how we will become a business enabler.
Our pathway to success is to insert ourselves into business processes. Be part of strategic discussion with M&A to avoid cost after integration, contribute to the perfect delivery with supply chain security, make sure our field service engineers can execute on maintenance contracts, etc.

Developing and Implementing Global Crisis Management and Business Continuity from Scratch

Developing and Implementing Global Crisis Management and Business Continuity from Scratch

In 2017, I've started at Booking.com as a regional corporate security manager. After analysing what was the overall crisis response for the company, I discovered that it was too basic and did not have global coverage. In 2019, after multiple technical incidents that were not considered as crises, I decided to proactively develop a global business continuity management system, which was also approved by Leadership.

Today, Booking.com has thousands of different systems, 17.000+ employees, 200+ offices in over 70 countries.

Takeaway: share my experience in developing critical programs from scratch and getting Leadership support and commitment in order to develop them.

Building a Business Case for Security

Building a Business Case for Security

In a metrics-focused and data-driven business environment, a business case is a crucial tool to justify budget and capital expenditures. But where to start? Identifying data sources, evaluating the quantitative and qualitative costs and benefits, and outlining risks to various courses of action can be overwhelming.

This workshop will walk you through the process with a series of exercises to help you develop your security business case. You’ll learn what to include, where to find your data, how to evaluate alternatives, and ultimately make your case to management.

Learning outcomes:
Participants will be able to
- List the elements included in a business case
- Ask appropriate questions
- Evaluate data sources

Make data-driven recommendations to the organization

Crisis Response in Reputational Crises
13:30 - 15:05
Crisis Response in Reputational Crises

Our number one priority is protecting our organisation’s brand. At the same time fake news is increasingly becoming a major threat. How do you respond to fake news from a crisis management perspective?

If fake news threatens your organisation or even jeopardises its continuity, the crisis management team needs to respond swiftly, but wisely. One of the factors to consider is a security response, whether cyber or physical. What would your input be from an Enterprise Security Risk Management (ESRM) perspective if the board requires it?

In this interactive ‘bring it to the boardroom’ crisis management training you will get busy! The training combines theory with a scenario to get you developing solution-oriented response elements on the spot. The quickly developing scenario challenges participants to come up with ESRM-based response suggestions. And you need to explain (and defend) your suggested crisis response to a panel of seasoned senior practitioners (the board) in an elevator pitch manner.

Because of the format, the takeaways of this interactive training are instant. Building on last years’ success, the training format is repeated, but the scenario is new and will confront you with new dilemmas based on actual cases. Nothing faked!

The ASIS International Crisis Management & Business Continuity Council supports this Leadership Training session.

In the Know and On the Go: The Information Side of Travel Risk
15:50 - 17:25
In the Know and On the Go: The Information Side of Travel Risk

Global business requires executives to carry or maintain access to valuable information 24/7, either in their devices or due to their company knowledge. Whether travelling on their routine commute, or into areas of heightened geopolitical tension, there is always a risk of industrial espionage due to criminal or state actors.

So how do you take the necessary steps to assess and mitigate physical, cyber and human error risk factors and protect from valuable information being lost?  

This interactive training session will take participants through several scenarios where adversaries try to extract information through high and low-tech means, from sophisticated eavesdropping and cyber-intrusions to social engineering everyday human encounters. If you’re on the road, how do you prepare and respond? And if you can’t be there, how do you brief and inform colleagues so they can protect themselves?

Fraud Cases and Lessons Learned

After finishing a fraud investigation an investigator usually looks back and asks: “How could it happen?” Often these reviews arrive at a point where basic principles of security- or fraud-management were neglected or applied half-hearted. This presentation is about case studies from the insurance industry and the banking sector. It points out how crooks could exploit weaknesses of due diligence and internal controls. Finally, it brings basic rules of fraud-management into play and shows how they could have prevented fraud.

Dealing with Risks and Uncertainty: Scientific Insights into Human Behaviour, Risk Assessments and Decision Making

Security practitioners deal with risks on a daily basis and they are assumed to be familiar with the concept of risk. So far, however, little is known about the psychological processes of individual security professionals. How do they perceive probabilities and assess uncertainties? Which aspects of security risk are considered valuable? What is the role of individual security expertise on risk assessments? During the past years the presenter committed empirical scientific studies in the field of individual decision making concerning security risks. During this interactive lecture the audience participates and their results are compared to the results of scientific research.

Indoor Positioning: Changing the Paradigm of Situational Awareness

This presentation features actual customer deployments of an indoor positioning solution in conjunction with command and control technology which is transforming how security leaders attain true situational awareness to coordinate and respond to individual and widespread incidents. The ability to see not just the building where incidents and resources are located, but also, the floor, wing and even meeting room inside a high-rise building with a high degree of accuracy is a game-changer. The technology is particularly well suited for corporate security leaders and risk officers who are looking to fulfill their duty of care and boost their team’s performance with medical emergencies, PEEPs, building evacuations and of course, active threats.

Harassment during Air Travel
14:20 - 14:40
Harassment during Air Travel

Dr Sophie Harwood has over ten years experience in the travel security field and has been the Women Travellers' Advisor for beTravelwise since 2015. She previously worked as a security analyst and crisis management communications associate in Hong Kong and London for Goldman Sachs, a Fortune 100 investment bank, and as a travel security training specialist in Paris for International SOS, the world's largest medical and travel security services firm. She is currently based in Berlin, where she is a senior editor for the language-learning app Babbel, and a member of the teaching faculty at Humboldt University.

Given the stringent levels of security and identity checks that travellers have to pass in order to take their seat on a plane, you'd be forgiven for thinking that it was a pretty safe space. Think again. Recent reports and court cases show that sexual harassment and assaults can and do take place during flights a lot more frequently than you may think. In this session, Dr Sophie Harwood will give an outline of the current situation and an overview of some recent cases, some practical advice on how to mitigate the risks of encountering it, suggestions on what to do if it happens to you or someone you know, and what airlines and airports could be doing to help put a stop it.

From Resilience to Antifragility
10:00 - 10:45
From Resilience to Antifragility

You know the structure of building a good security program, right? In broad strokes, the first step is understanding risks. The second step is identifying vulnerabilities. Next, you identify the gaps between your current position and your desired position. But then what? What do you do to go from risk mitigation to resilience? Or, even better, from Resilience to Antifragility?
Antifragility is the state of growing stronger as a result of volatility, shock, stressors, noise, attacks and failures.
How do we build programs which get stronger through experiencing stress? We will discuss the common stressors of a security program, good program design practices, and the required outlook and attitude for developing and maintaining an antifragile business enabling security program.

How Security Data Adds Value to the Organisation
11:30 - 12:15
How Security Data Adds Value to the Organisation

With a holistic view on resilience you can identify security processes and information that fit into a bigger picture for your organisation’s operation, and add value beyond the day to day security function. This presentation will outline how to approach this challenge, what components are included when thinking resilience rather than “just” security, and how to identify the key stakeholders in your organisation.

You will see examples of how security expertise together with organisational knowledge generated valuable data from security systems and how this was used differently to support the bigger picture of the organisation in addition to their “traditional” security use.

Finally, you will see how to create awareness and communicate the benefits to key actors across the organisation, using soft skills to present this data in the right way and demonstrate how your team contributes to resilience.

How Supply-Chain Optimisation Practices Help Criminals Get Rich!

How Supply-Chain Optimisation Practices Help Criminals Get Rich!

Attacking supply chains in order for criminals to operate their business has grown into a global enterprise scenario with double digit profit margins with acceptable risks.

As such supply chain interruptions are likely to increase causing your company financial and or reputational harm.

In this presentation we think as a criminal using normal management practises (cost reduction, flexibility, and you name all buzz words) as a way of inspiration to build up a succesful "criminal" enterprise.

As a takeaway we want you to look at your supply chain from a different angle and review if some easy and or cheap adjustments can reduce your companies risk.

Investigations – Collaboration and Tension between Security and HR

Investigations – Collaboration and Tension between Security and HR

A purely security driven view of the investigative mission and process is likely to create friction within today’s increasingly flexible, collaborative and trust-based company cultures.

In addition, employment laws and GDPR may present challenges for the security team in pursuing their investigative path, and security practitioners will need to foster collaborative approaches with their HR colleagues to achieve results within legal and ethical frameworks.

Using a recent well-publicised example of a high profile employee investigation gone wrong as one of several scenarios, this interactive training session will take participants through some of the most complex and potentially controversial judgements that may arise when juggling investigative objectives, maintaining a positive company culture, and the risk of reputational damage.

The Explosive Drone threat: A physical security paradigm shift

The Explosive Drone threat: A physical security paradigm shift

The wide availability of small to medium sized commercial unmanned aerial vehicles or drones, together with their relative ease of manipulation, makes them a considerable new threat to consider in any security risk analysis scheme. The increased affordability, flight stability, payload capacity and autonomy has made it possible to consider these drones as effective munition vectors, not only for regular armies but also for non-state actors, criminals and terrorist organizations.

Equipped with Improvised Explosive Devices (IED’s), these drones can be used as a low cost weapon to disrupt governemental, societal or commercial activity by creating panic, causing structural damage and lead to the loss of human life.

We will go into the details of the explosive drone threat: what are the effects to take into account and which countermeasures are available.

Engaging Employees in Compliance and Security Culture

Security, Compliance, Governance, Risk Management. They all co-exist, but most organisations manage all of them separately.

Compliance is no longer a purely regulatory domain. Ethics and integrity play an integral role in building a security rule based culture built on principles rather than on business at whatever cost.

GDPR has opened a lot of discussion regarding compliance, its role in business and the way it lets organisations manage risks related to information security.

It is time to move from reacting to regulatory changes to building a strong culture of ethics and integrity. For that to happen businesses must realise the key is their employees.

Identifying Truth During the Interview Process

Always want to know the truth? It is very easy! Just learn how to listen and see proper details in words, facial expression, voice and gestures and interpret them correctly.

The process of interview is extremely important for the certain positions such as HR specialists and recruiters, internal auditors, investigators, security specialists etc during which they need to asses critically incoming information and take relevant decisions. But not everyone is ready to disclose the truth and moreover somebody tries to hide it. How to identify the truth during dialog ?

How to Strategically Align the Executive Protection Programme With the Business

How to Strategically Align the Executive Protection Programme With the Business

Executives that require protection services are not always members of the C-Suite and in most cases, are more visible and accessible than the CEO. Promptly recognising this industry nuance will afford practitioners the ability to extend the life cycle of Executive Protection Programmes.

Developing a business model framework for the Executive Protection Programme that is strategically aligned with the business will position security managers as thought partners and strategic leaders within the organisation as opposed to being viewed as a tactical department. Opportunities to develop scalable and sustainable Executive Protection Programmes occur when practitioners apply business acumen, such as leadership, change management, development of key performance indicators and metrics, to operational security services.

Access Badges R.I.P.
10:00 - 10:20
Access Badges R.I.P.

Will access badges soon disappear? Will the industry deliver on the promise of frictionless access control? For decades we have been relying on access badges to open turnstiles, gates and doors. Yet several studies show that people don’t like badges, and want more user friendly ways to get where they need to go. Will smartphones, facial recognition or security wearables soon replace access badges? In this session we discuss what is possible today and analyze the pros and cons of different the technology alternatives. We also present a risk-based framework that allows you to rethink access control for your specific environment.

10:25 - 10:45
Executive Protection & Data Protection – How do you protect your client's data when working in the field

Data protection is on everyone's mind and with GDPR, the need to protect your client's information is no longer at your discretion. Whether emails between yourself and the Principal's PA, print outs of schedules or the use of IoT Wifi devices in your hotel or office, information is vulnerable to unsolicited sharing and hacking. How does the Executive Protection industry effectively protect their client's data when in the field? What proactive steps can be taken by EP teams when operating and what training should be provided to ensure your team is compliant and mitigates the risk of data leakage.

Resilience is the key to success

Resilience is the key to success

Today's world is not about power or money, it's all about resilience. Your organization's size or market share is rather irrelevant in this ever-changing environment. Even Jeff Bezos, Amazon's CEO, has recently declared: "I predict one day Amazon will fail. Amazon will go bankrupt. Our job is to delay it as long as possible". How? Being resilient! It is the only key to long-term success. This presentation discusses several case studies and provides a perspective on how security managers can influence their organizations' culture in a way that resilience is embedded in top management's strategic decisions to gain or maintain competitive advantage.

Protective Monitoring - Uncovering Physical Threats

Protective Monitoring - Uncovering Physical Threats

How can dedicated and focused web monitoring increase organisational security?

Using extended WEBINT capabilities you can identify and mitigate existing and emerging threats. Protective monitoring is a custom-made-solution that was designed to enhance your intelligence coverage focusing on your interests.

How protective monitoring can protect against violent demonstrations, attacks, or negative campaigns?

The realm of information is boundless – including clear, deep and darknet, from open sources and up-to restricted closed chat-rooms where criminals plan their next move.

Without a full understanding of the web’s domains, it's impossible to build holistic intelligence solutions that can fully protect your company.

It's the security managers' goal to develop methods and sources against those threats, but are they looking in the right places?

The combination of geopolitical intelligence and Protective provides this holistic intelligence coverage.

In This presentation, through real case studies, we will discuss the basics and added value of Protective Monitoring and the ways to implement it in your organization
