Cyber Security Essentials for Physical Security & Business Managers: Key Questions to Ask

Cyber-attacks happen to the best. Organisations no longer just ‘throw the cyber challenge over the wall’, so the IT and/or IT Security department can deal with it. Physical Security professionals need to understand how they can optimally contribute, particularly in context of physically protecting on-premises IT equipment, and in relation to IoT devices. Other business managers must be able to assist in assessing Cyber Risk in terms of reputational, financial and operational impacts.

In this session, the Facilitator will be demystifying aspects such as:
• the discrepancy between Cyber and Information Security
• why Cloud is not the ‘be all and end all’
• the changing nature of Cyber Insurance
• how to handle bedazzling Cyber ‘lingo’ including ISO 27001

Traveller Communications

Traveller Communications

How you communicate with travellers during a crisis is one of the most important things organisations should consider. While we live in a world where staying in touch may seem easier than ever, the reality is communicating with travellers in other countries can be much more difficult than you may think and communication issues are only exaggerated when crisis situation happens.

We will look at these issues and talk about how we can possibly work around them in the future and what tools are available to help us communicate better with our travellers and to ultimately offer a higher level of duty of care. Employers need to acknowledge that in the digital age 'communication' is no longer just about content; it's about delivering the right content by the right means and at the right time for each employee.

Overcoming Polarisation and Maintaining Healthy Dialogue

Addressing a variety of political, societal and environmental topics where collaboration and finding consensus will be vital for the future of Europe and the wider world is a challenge due to increasingly polarised viewpoints.
This online session will explore:
• What happens to organisational effectiveness when polarisation stops important discussions from taking place, or at least makes them difficult to have in a constructive way?
• What are the cognitive processes behind this, and how can you spot when this is happening?
• What role can security leaders play in creating a culture that facilitates inclusive discussion?
• How can you be a role model, encouraging diversity of thought and healthy debate?

An expert presentation from Balvinder Singh Powar , associate professor at the IE Business School will be followed by live Q&A. Balvinder’s expertise includes creative and strategic input, business development and senior management, team leadership, relationship management and business mediation.

Buildings of the Future: a people centric approach to healthier facilities

Buildings are at the point of no return to the pre-pandemic way of operating as they need to become healthier, safer and more secure, people-centric and sustainable. The critical elements of creating healthier and more sustainable buildings are: IAQ, Lighting, UVC, Monitoring – AI & Analytics, Energy Efficiency & Sustainability.
The session will explore how to create healthier facilities providing a safer and more inviting return for the workforce by using new technologies and harnessing the power of IoT and data. Turning buildings into healthier and safer facilities also means to make them more profitable and sustainable assets, able to drive greater performance.

Managing Risk and Improving Resilience in a Volatile World

The world in which businesses operate is getting more complex, unpredictable, and volatile. Meanwhile, PwC reports that 95% of business leaders say their crisis management capabilities need improvement.

During a crisis, your response is only as good as the information you use to inform your decision-making and risk workflows. So, risk leaders wanting to reduce the impact of a crisis should attend this session as we answer:

- What can businesses do to minimise disruption and keep their people and assets safe?
- What impact can a proactive, coordinated response have on operational effectiveness?
- How can leaders increase the ROI of their security investments, providing faster time to value?

TSCM Update & The Importance of TSCM Post Pandemic

The aim of the presentation is to inform and educate security professionals of the new surveillance threats that have emerged over the last couple of years. Looking at new advances in eavesdropping technology. Also to highlight the security risks that continued during the COVID pandemic. Many companies security posture changed and many offices were left empty for long periods of time. Providing an opportunity for technical attacks.

This presentation looks at some of the security risks associated with working from home and the need for an increased TSCM and Cyber Security requirements and technical vigilance when offices return to normal working.

How can we lead resilience in crisis situations? The risk mitigation through innovative tools and human adaptability on change

During a pandemic situation or any other unexpected crisis with steep evolution, the availability of human resources and continuous adaptability to rapid changes can determine the effectiveness of security incident management. Acknowledge – validate – solve or escalate to closure are the most common steps of a security standard operating procedure in alarm incident management. Early adoption of new tools, sharing of data and ensuring full knowledge of all aspects of a situation as it evolves should be considered key elements of security monitoring. Should these elements be independent or dependent on educated and qualified human resources?

The Importance of Building Resilient Businesses in a Covid-19 World - Digital Transformation in the New Normal

As organizations adjust to new hybrid and remote work environments following covid-19, the parameters of their delivery mechanisms, and what it means to be resilient, are changing. It’s the unbreakable connection between resilience and technology, and its power in allowing organizations to respond, adapt and expand safely and securely. What does operational resilience really look like, and how can we continue to adjust from a digital, physical and IT perspective while remaining relevant and successful?

The current IT Operations landscape is constantly evolving and the challenges and threats are increasing at the same if not at a higher rate. Digital Operations play a key role in establishing organizational resilience and thus, establishing agile and resilient processes is a top priority.

Leveraging intelligence to keep board-level attention following Ukraine

The Russian invasion of Ukraine marked the second time since Covid-19 that corporate leadership has turned to intelligence and security teams to solve unprecedented problems. The conflict has settled, but the knock-on risks are now only beginning to play out. A key challenge will be retaining board-level attention on the latter. This session will investigate lessons learned from the Ukraine crisis and help us benchmark how organisations are managing the ongoing fallout. We will also explore how this is an opportunity to turn intelligence into board-level success.

When Security Becomes Enterprise Risk Management Reality

When Security Becomes Enterprise Risk Management Reality
11:35 - 12:20

CSOs and physical security professionals are looking more and more at how to get security and their function recognized at a C-Suite ERM level. Wanting to move from being seen as a cost or minimum requirement, to becoming a risk management function integral to the business.

A path to this is through understanding company structures, Annual Reports, Risk Registers, regulatory ERM requirements, benchmarking, and what a company does and does not commit to with regard to security as an ERM Principal Risk Mitigation Measure.

Through the reality of a high-profile civil lawsuit against a Fortune 100 company in which the presenter went from defending corporates in ERM cases to prosecuting as the Expert Witness, this path will be revealed.

Rethinking Resilience in the Permacrisis Era
10:45 - 11:30

A constant crisis mode seems to be the New Normal: Political conflicts, supply chain disruptions, climate change risk and economic crises are now challenging businesses in addition to ever-growing threats like cyber-attacks. Is your organization prepared for this change in paradigm?

In the past, when crises were rare events, we usually had at least some time to learn and prepare for the next crisis – but now that we are facing crises more frequently and even simultaneously how does it impact your approach to crisis preparedness?

Are high-risk areas really identified and minimized with justifiable financial or procedural effort? Are we building luxury continuity measures because we are totally shocked by these constant crises, or should we work together in a more coordinated way in the areas of risk, crisis and BCM and thus achieve better results for the company?

At the end of the day, one thing is very clear: the more resilient your organization is, the better your chances of surviving and succeeding in these disruptive times. Let’s discuss what this means for you and how to ensure that resilience is a competitive advantage for your organization.

Using security incidents to help you build a sustainable security approach

Using security incidents to help you build a sustainable security approach
11:35 - 12:20

Security professionals unfortunately experience that it very often takes an incident (sometimes several) to be able to move security forward in an organization. The incident allows us to identify weaknesses that were overlooked, to reveal the practices that are not aligned with the company policies, etc.

Improving security, re-aligning with policies and best practices, is critical after an incident. However, it sometimes takes a huge effort and isn’t always fully successful.

What could an organization do to ensure the appropriate level of protection is implemented and to prevent other incidents from happening?

Based on real-life cases, this interactive session will focus on sharing practical experiences on how to concretely improve the security approach within an organisation after an incident.

The New Era of Supply Chain Resilience – Anticipating Key Drivers and Developments
13:30 - 14:15

Supply chain risk management and resilience must be key focus areas for all businesses as it has become increasingly important. Rising supply chain complexity brings with it more potential failure points and consequently higher levels of risk. Dropping economies, surging energy prices, severe material shortages, and returning COVID-19 outbreaks compounded risk to cause major supply chain disruptions over the past twelve months across the globe. To achieve resilient supply chains, this session will highlight clear win-win scenarios from a business risk management perspective, it provides industry insights to existing challenges and future key drivers. It will provide practical guidance to strategically identify, measure, and manage key supply chain risks and processes, improve resilience, and add value to your business.

Geopolitical risks and high-magnitude global security risks are of increasing importance to non-security stakeholders and Corporate security teams face particular challenges amid wider economic headwinds of budget cuts at a time when they can add real value to senior decision-making – how they can use intelligence to demonstrate business value beyond protection and crisis management ?

This session will look at:

- the opportunities and risks for security leaders in adding value to the enterprise in a briefing on issues of wider strategic significance to boards
- Lessons learned from the security and intelligence leaders that are successfully engaging senior non-security stakeholders
- Opportunities for CSOs to position security as a strategic business enabler as well as an operational one

The failure to predict is a failure to protect. Simulation of aggressors' modus operandi through proper Red Teaming pushes the limits of what security operations think is possible and illuminates vulnerabilities. Red Teams create security innovation and truly proactive security operations. Designing and maintaining an effective Red Teaming program is the must-have component of any security operation, regardless of size and risk profile. This session will provide a detailed overview of an advanced red teaming program, application, and red teams' impact via case studies, standard processes, methods, team composition, and methodology to execute and manage effective red teams and red teaming programs.

The Women in Security Breakfast Meeting at ASIS Europe 2023 has been organised by the ASIS UK & Romania Chapters with the purpose of facilitating open and honest conversations around sensitive topics that often make people feel uncomfortable in the workplace.

We believe that creating a safe space for discussions around difficult topics is vital in promoting a more inclusive and supportive workplace culture. Our aim for this event is to raise awareness, increase understanding, and explore ways to tackle sensitive issues like menopause, period, sexual harassment, racism, mental health, and more.

This function will be conducted in a workshop style, where attendees will be seated in groups and handed cards with various uncomfortable words. We hope that this approach will encourage participants to share their experiences, thoughts, and ideas on how we can create a more diverse, inclusive, and respectful workplace for everyone.

We are committed to promoting a workplace culture where all employees feel safe, respected, and valued. We hope to facilitate meaningful discussions that lead to positive changes in our industry.

We encourage all participants to attend and discuss this important topic.

Workshop: Geopolitical tensions – business & security consequences
10:45 - 12:20

2022 has proven to be one of the most turbulent years of this century and is viewed by many as a harbinger of things to come. Whether it be Russian forces invading Ukraine, struggles for control of the Middle East, or an ever more assertive China, it becomes clearer that power politics are back on the menu in international relations. Leaders around the world are scrambling to cope with a political reality of national interests and spheres of influence that seemed anachronistic to many stakeholders just a year ago.

Geopolitical issues are becoming increasingly prominent on the radar of Corporate Security professionals. According to the recent survey, Corporate Security Professionals put geopolitics among the top challenges to come in the next 5 years. As the tensions keep on raising across the globe, it is incumbent on businesses to understand how Geopolitics will impact them and their objectives. The workshop will address the current geopolitical trends, potential future scenarios and their implications for businesses and security.

During the workshop, participants will have a chance to work in smaller groups to discuss and determine what Geopolitical trends mean for them and what consequences they might have for their companies as a whole and their work as security professionals.

Workshop: Guarding Procurement – Collective Solutions to an Industry Challenge
13:30 - 15:05

This interactive workshop will address the challenges of sourcing, selecting and contracting guarding services. It will explore perspectives from both the buyers’ and providers’ perspective, promote discussion and gather insights from the audience on how to address shared challenges.

The session will focus on three interdependent aspects:
- Availability of sufficient, skilful and suitable guarding staff in light of global economic and security trends and challenges, fluctuations, subcontracting, employment levels and more.
- Quality and competence of guarding services to perform their tasks, performance management, vetting, conflicts, training and certification.
- Cost of guarding services, ROI and financial considerations, creeping costs, technology trade-offs, innovation and market forces.

All the challenges above are ultimately reflected in the cost vs value for the end client – after an introductory presentation, attendees will join the debate to help find the most sustainable solutions, supported by an experienced panel representing key stakeholder groups.

Security in the supply Chain: Still the weakest link
09:25 - 09:45
Security in the supply Chain: Still the weakest link

There is an unfortunate reality in the supply chain, and is that, despite the companies being more and more aware of the issues and the need to protect their goods inside their facilities and to be vigilant for cybersecurity risks, the logistics remain the often forgotten weakest link in supply-chain security: companies that would spare no expenses to make sure that their warehouses are as secure and safe as possible wouldn’t think twice before simply assigning transportation contracts to the lowest bidder, a situation that the current supply-chain bottlenecks and scarcity in the container and trucking market has only exacerbated, with companies often lowering their transportation standards just to make sure that the goods would get out of the door.

This leaves the goods, which are often so well protected when inside the facilities, exposed to a multitude of dangers and risks that could vary a lot between areas, especially for intercontinental multi-modal shipments: in the global supply chain, a shipment can be exposed to a high risk of pilferage in Germany, hijacking in South Africa or a last mile hit in Southern Europe. It doesn’t help that the criminal charges for some of these acts tend to be quite more lenient than attacks on facilities, making the targeting of this component of the supply-chain especially attractive to certain criminals, and that the methods used to target shipments are continuously changing: it’s a sad fact that in this area the criminals might be often faster to adapt and more innovative than many of the people on the security side.

Of course, there are steps that a company could take to maximise the prevention for these events, even in the current market where it can be difficult to find available transportation, let alone a top notch and certified trucking company: a multi-layered approach based on IOT and telematics, a high-standard security plan inclusive of a continuous auditing of the performance and compliance, a list of quick response 24/7 solution protocols for any possible situation together with a strong intelligence could improve reducing the loss on any kind of lane, no matter how risky the area and how appetible the goods might be. Also, it’s important to mention the involvement of insurance, which, while certainly an important part for risk management in the supply chain, is ideally not the only solution that a company would rely upon, as such an approach would still leave anyone vulnerable to other issues, such as reputational ones.

To sum it up, we are living through challenging times, with continuously shifting criminal hotspots, logistical bottlenecks, and technological dangers; but this should not discourage anyone from improving the performance (also of their providers) and mitigate risk within their supply chain: as many new risks emerge out there, new solutions, unthinkable of even 5 years ago, are not lacking either.

Ukraine - Public War, Private Intelligence: How organizations are informed and protected by open-source intelligence (OSINT)
09:50 - 10:10
Ukraine - Public War, Private Intelligence: How organizations are informed and protected by open-source intelligence (OSINT)

To excel in intelligence analysis, organizations must ensure that their outputs are timely, accurate, and relevant. The Ukraine conflict has shown the vital imperative of delivering the best possible information to protect lives in Ukraine, as well as to enable decision-makers to make the right strategic decisions. The conflict has also presented new challenges in the harvesting and analysis of open-source data. Issues include the quantity and diversity of different media, the degrees of misinformation, disinformation, and operational security, and the human dimension of an industrial state-on-state war.

This presentation will consider the lessons learned so far from this conflict, and the challenges of open-source intelligence analysis, through the perspectives of timeliness, accuracy, and relevance of information. Using recent examples, the presentation will demonstrate the additional challenges that this conflict raises in managing information from data sources to clients.

Biomimicry as a Solution to Robotize Your Workforce
11:10 - 11:30
Biomimicry as a Solution to Robotize Your Workforce

Current challenges in the security domain are known. The increasing threats need to be tackled by a decreasing workforce. The threats are also more incidentally and of high impact. Public VIPs experience increased threats by demonstrators. Also at harbours there is an traffic-increase by drug couriers. In the past more manpower was sufficient to overcome these threats. Nowadays this is not possible anymore. Robotic biomimicry as a scientific and engineering approach looks at the excellent solutions nature has developed throughout its evolutional path and mimic’s these by robotic technologies and products. In nature predators are known for its energy efficient ways of capturing their preys. For the security domain this translate to capturing intrudors. The example of a spider is shown as a completely working and validated innovation to robotize the workforce and make them more effective.

Getting in Front of Threats & Risks: Augmented Analytics as a Force Multiplier

This session is going to cover the topic of augmented analytics; specifically how it is changing how security, risk and intelligence professionals navigate the geopolitical threat and risk environment. Instead of living in a world where leaders must react in real-time to the disruption around them, augmented analytics empowers more proactive, effective decision-making thanks to in-depth analysis, layered data sets, real-time information, and forecasts of future risks. By combining the expertise of world class analysts with the power of artificial intelligence and open-source intelligence, users are able to uncover insights on a scale and depth never before seen possible, revealing knowledge they might not see otherwise.

This session will bring augmented analytics to life by providing case studies of how security and intelligence professionals have used augmented analytics to make smarter, more efficient decisions that enable their organizations to get ahead of disruption.

What happens if the attacker passes your defense cyber walls?
13:30 - 13:50
What happens if the attacker passes your defense cyber walls?

There are many articles and experts out there that help to prepare for a cyber-attack. They build a wall, a ditch, and barriers against attackers. This is important and a major part of preparation that is half the life. However, once an attacker might think one step ahead and pass all your stop signs, barriers and employer trainings.

There might be a colleague that just is busy and does it: He clicks the dangerous link and without noticing, the attackers are in your system. They will most probably not tell you right away that they are there. No; more commonly it is that they’re there for weeks before you notice that some external party is within the castle that you build and thought you secured it with high defense walls. They track your activities and take all your sensitive data. And then, what happens? What do you have to do? Conti, one of the world most known attacker firms for instance is known to blackmail you for bitcoins in exchange to not leak your data. It is a fortunate and unfortunate situation at the same time, if you have never experienced that before. Fortunate, because of course you did not have to deal with such a threat and unfortunate because you do not know how it looks like or what to prepare for. At my presentation at the ASIS, I aim to give the attendees an overview on what to expect in the situation.

From the attackers:
• How such a threat of an attacker looks like?
• How to negotiate more time?
• Would you make a contract with an attacker?

From internal (employees and management):
• How to give an overview on the situation?
• How to distribute responsibilities and tasks to overcome the situation?
• How and what to communicate?

From external (press, regulators, authorities):
• When, how and what to report?
• When, how and what to communicate to the press?

And last but not least how to evaluate such a situation and act according to regulatory requirements like NIS2 Directive that has been published by the European union. The NIS2 directive regulates companies and governments on cyber and information security. It sets requirements for management, risk control, business continuity and reporting to authorities.

Protective Intelligence
13:55 - 14:15
Protective Intelligence

In this era of information explosion following the massive increase in social media, it's becoming clearer that covering only geopolitical security threats is not enough for the protection of business interests. Protective Intelligence is a client-centered form of online intelligence that uses robust OSINT methodologies to find physical, cyber, and reputational threats in the clear, deep and dark web, by analyzing vast amounts of data and highlighting key points that are relevant to the asset in question (person, brand or physical location).

In this presentation, we will discuss the importance of Protective Intelligence solution, from information collection, to analysis, and to the production of relevant reports. Specifically, the presentation will look at key methodologies of intelligence, passive and active intelligence, finding and analyzing highly target-specific threats, and which reports to prepare to best present the findings. We will also explain some key examples to illustrate the focus and capabilities of this cutting-edge intelligence approach.

Human & Machine: What role does AI play for tactical intel in response operations?
11:20 - 12:05

The success of response operations is dependent on effective use of tactical intelligence. With the increase in online information, AI has become a crucial player in revolutionizing the way GSOC operates by quickly tracking events and providing wider coverage, deeper insights, and faster results.

By combining human expertise with cutting-edge technology, we achieve the best of both worlds. This dynamic duo delivers reliable, precise, and timely intelligence: while AI amplifies intelligence gathering, human analysts maintain ultimate responsibility for decision-making and accountability.

The use of AI in response operations requires that it operates within established ethical and cultural standards, providing reliable results without bias, and delivering explainable results with clear sources and references.

At ASIS Europe, we will delve into these challenges and discuss the importance of overcoming them to fully realize the potential of Man and Machine collaboration in enhancing tactical intelligence in response operations.

The word of the day is #polycrisis. COVID-19 has been followed by war in Ukraine that impacted supply chains, energy, agriculture and driven inflation to levels not seen in the past 20 years. It also derailed national and international initiatives at reducing climate change.

Record heatwaves and droughts in 2022 highlighted emerging risks and vulnerabilities in critical national infrastructure as well as operational resilience. Corporate Security must begin to map, quantify and mitigate risks stemming from climate change that is occurring with greater frequency and increased impact. It is incumbent on us to design, develop and deliver programmes that will protect and sustain our organisations, societies and way of life.

This is a 'Moonshot' moment for corporate security and we will discuss how:
1. Threats are interconnected
2. How intelligence powers resilience
3. How to build a resilience ecosystem for future crises
4. Why and how is ESG a way forward"

Most security experts (CISO/CSO’s) see insider threats as one of the most important threats they face today and the coming years. A 2021 survey by Egress shows that 94% of all organisations have experienced an insider act in the past 12 months. And the number of incidents is rising. Recent research suggests that insider incidents have increased by 47% over the past two years. While the threat is crystal clear, many organisations still struggle to effectively address this threat. Our workshop gives our audience just that: an effective, proven and practical way to address insider risk for their organisations.

14:00 - 14:45

Join this session to get an introduction to the newly developed Enterprise Security Risk Management Maturity Model and discuss how it can be applied to add value in your organisation.

It has long been a known challenge in the industry for the security manager to clearly define their role and explain and deliver the strategic value required to get “a seat at the table” and the attention of the senior leadership.

The ASIS ESRM Community engaged an international team of ESRM practitioners to develop a global model as a benchmark tool to evaluate the maturity level of organisations’ Enterprise Security Risk Management (ESRM) practices. The model is intended to enable security leaders to build a strategic framework that will pave the way forward for security teams to become more valuable business partners across the organisation.

The ESRM Maturity Model will enable the user to establish what ESRM practice is already evident in their organisations and help identify a roadmap for continual improvement.

This session will introduce the online ESRM Maturity Model and demonstrate how to create an ESRM Maturity Model report before discussing the value it can deliver both to you as a security professional, and to the organisations you protect.

Resilience Reimagined – not if but when.
09:25 - 09:45
Resilience Reimagined – not if but when.

How many of us working in incident and crisis management look at or even consider our risk register when we are invoking or escalating our response? How many of us look at the Business Impact Analysis done during the Business Continuity Lifecyle to inform the escalation and decision-making process? Ben would argue very few if any. This presentation will look into how we can look at resilience from a different perspective. Much of the thinking around resilience that we observe is preparing for an event based on ’if’ something were to happen - will we have the plans and capability in place to respond and recover, what Ben will talk about is how we change the perception to this event ’will’ happen and therefore does that change my approach to resilience.

Furthermore, Ben will discuss how far does security go to inform resilience planning and importantly support the management of an incident.

Setting expectations for your relationship with physical access management
09:50 - 10:10
Setting expectations for your relationship with physical access management

As technology progresses user expectations grow. Increased performance, new features and great experiences are minimum requirements. Physical access control systems can play a pivotal role in creating the modern, connected-and-secure work-place, combining technologies that can both restrict or enable our physical experience based on who, when, or where we are. The expectations are great, so what prevents many users from achieving what should be possible? This presentation discusses three key elements of physical access management that are the catalyst for creating a connected, data-driven platform to enhance the work-place experience for all users. Thinking of physical access control only in terms of technology misses the essential components of people and policy.

Travel Risk Management V2.0
11:20 - 11:40
Travel Risk Management V2.0

Having travel security for your C-suite executives is almost a foregone conclusion in today's world. The challenge is how your Enterprise Security Risk Management (ESRM) structure can best support you travelling execs in a constructive manner. Executive Protection and Secure Transporation should not be a hindrance or an inconvenience, but rather facilitate easier travel, optimize productivity and support the success of your executives. ISO 31030 guidelines encourage closer attention to travel risk management but how do you optimize the benefit from EP to get buy-in from the board and c-suites, creating an environment where travel security support is welcomed and becomes a benefit center as opposed to a cost center. Let's discuss how to best accomplish this together.

The digital Security Manager - How to use data and dashboards in the Corporate Security world

The digital age is a fact. Digital transformation already turns into the new stage of a digital evolution. The support of artificial intelligence, robotic automation and new ways of living and working impact the security management arena.

But how do security services add value to the businesses and the organizations they are embedded with? How do they communicate and share information to stakeholders? And what about dashboards that speak “executive language” and provide smart overviews for the top management levels?
The requirements for security will be more and more to “think in data first”. Security leaders and managers become digital leaders, and the education and development of security professionals shift into the digital landscape.

From Travel Risk Management to People Risk Management
16:25 - 16:45
From Travel Risk Management to People Risk Management

Organizations have had no choice but to continually adapt over the last few years, especially when it comes to protecting their traveling employees. In simpler times, organizations worried about missing or outdated passports, a rare airline food poisoning incident, weather delays, and turbulence. The pandemic and other recent critical events including civil unrest, severe weather and cyber-attacks have put a sharp focus on taking care of your employees at all times. Successful businesses need a cross-functional and collaborative approach to operational risk management and business continuity for their employees, one that protects their people at the office, at home, or in the field. So why are you still limited to a travel risk management programme?

The key now is focusing on risk both to and from your employees. This will cover:
• Agile operational resiliency and gaining a holistic view of vulnerabilities.
• How to develop a holistic and strategic risk framework that captures cost savings, drives competitive advantages, and protects reputations.
• Best practices to gain a 360-degree view of risk related to your people through cross-functional oversight and coordination.

Boosting your employee’s security habits by leveraging real-time learning opportunities

Everyone understands the importance of training their employees to make better security decisions, to appropriately deal with threats of phishing and malware. Most organizations use security awareness campaigns to that extent. However, awareness and even understanding do not always lead to action.
So, how do you make sure your employees actually act on what you teach them? How do you ensure they not only know what to do but also act accordingly after they have left your training classroom?
Find out how your training campaigns can be boosted by real-time, on-the-job learning opportunities. Learn why these tools are instrumental in raising awareness and fostering good security habits. Employing these tools decreases your organization's risk posture and takes security awareness training to a whole new level.
In this talk, you will learn:
- What real-time learning opportunities look like.
- What the power of the combination of New School Awareness training and building habits entails.
- What you can do to take the next step in making sure your employees make the right security decisions.

How can we lead resilience in crisis situations? The risk mitigation through innovative tools and human adaptability on change

During a pandemic situation or any other unexpected crisis with steep evolution, the availability of human resources and continuous adaptability to rapid changes can determine the effectiveness of security incident management. Acknowledge – validate – solve or escalate to closure are the most common steps of a security standard operating procedure in alarm incident management. Early adoption of new tools, sharing of data and ensuring full knowledge of all aspects of a situation as it evolves should be considered key elements of security monitoring. Should these elements be independent or dependent on educated and qualified human resources?

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.

Dealing with Risks and Uncertainty: Are Security Professionals Human after all?
15:45 - 16:30

Security practitioners, like you, deal with risks on a daily basis. 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, I have conducted several empirical scientific studies in the field of individual decision-making concerning security risks. The results show that security professionals are vulnerable to decision making biases. These phenomena can strongly influence their professional judgment and with that, risk assessments and risk mitigation in organisations. During this session, you are confronted with a few ‘mind experiments’ which can make you aware of your own assessment biases. You are also kindly invited to participate in an online scientific survey. The results of this survey will be analysed in advance and presented during this session. To the survey

Nedap Benchmark Research, 2020/2021: How can Access Control Add Value to Your Business?

Many large or multinational companies now use electronic systems for physical access control. Typically, these systems collate lots of data and provide a wide range of functionality. Which means they can do far more than open and close doors – they can add value to your business in a variety of ways.

For our annual benchmark research, this was the question we explored: “How can access control add value to your business?”

We interviewed 40 multinational companies about their experience, implementations and processes in relation to access control. The results give an overview on how access control systems are being used; how they’re optimising company-wide processes; and where there are opportunities to gain more value from them.

Connect the Dots – An Intro to Natural Language Processing for Security

Digital transformation is rapidly picking up pace as security teams continuously bring more processes online. We collect more data than ever, but we struggle to use it effectively, which results in missed threats or root causes. Thankfully, recent advances in Natural Language Processing (NLP), a subfield of Artificial Intelligence, offer solutions to these problems. In this session, we will discuss how NLP can help you collect, classify, and extract meaningful data from language inputs to protect what matters in your business.
