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

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.

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?

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.

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.

Business interruption ... a nightmare for your organisation. Have you considered all scenarios, including a sabotage or compromise of the systems that steer the production installations? Is it fair to say that when you asked about its protection, you got an unsatisfactory answer?

In this presentation we'll take you through our journey: from realising the potential consequences, to teaming up with the key stakeholders and discovering the strengths and weaknesses in the organisation.

A project was set up under the leadership of security (not cyber security) to globally assess the current security posture. This initiative provided senior management and the different stakeholders great insights, knowledge, and - most importantly - how to counter the risk.

Will Generative AI Be a Paradigm Shift for Corporate Security?
11:35 - 12:20

2024 is an unparallelled year in global geopolitics, with conflicts continuing on the edge of Europe and in the Middle East, as well as an unprecedented round of elections that will see over 60 countries – over half the world's population – going to the polls.

With huge advances in artificial intelligence (AI) in recent years, resilient companies will be the only ones able to anticipate, respond to and recover from adverse events. Whether it’s new conflicts, increased terrorism, socio-economic unrest or cyberattacks, organisations must be ready to adjust quickly or risk being left behind.

In this session, Hugh Farquhar – VP of Product at Dataminr – will explore how AI can provide powerful tools to mitigate risks and enable more resilient operations, whilst touching on some of the challenges that organisations must be wary of when onboarding AI solutions. Attendees will learn:

- An understanding of the fundamental principles of predictive and generative AI
- How large language models (LLMs) have democratised AI
- The advent of small LLMs (SLMs) for specific use case applications
- The opportunities and risks of AI across your tech stack
- Combatting mis- and disinformation in the age of AI

Improving Worker Safety: How Integrated De-Escalation and Deterrence Technology Can Protect Life

Workplace violence and crime rates have grown exponentially since the COVID-19 pandemic and are reaching epidemic levels. Similarly, worker sentiment on safety is at an all-time low, leading to labor shortages, high-churn rates, and forced business closures. Financially, this violence costs private sector companies millions of dollars annually. More importantly, though, this violence is a threat to everyone’s safety and the sanctity of our cities. Technology can play a role in mitigating this violence, but stand-alone solutions can cause friction and minimize the impact. This complicated issue requires integrated technology.

Seismic Shift: Navigating Cloud Adoption in Physical Security
14:45 - 15:05
Seismic Shift: Navigating Cloud Adoption in Physical Security

The cloud is transforming the physical security industry at an unprecedented pace. According to a recent survey of 5,500 security professionals, the percentage of end users who take advantage of the cloud to store and manage security data has increased from 4% to 15% in one year, a 275% growth. This is not a gradual change; this is a seismic shift. As more and more organisations embrace the cloud for physical security, they face new challenges and opportunities. How should they design their security systems to leverage the cloud's benefits? How should they adapt their thinking and strategies to the cloud's possibilities? And how should they engage with systems integrators who can offer new ownership models, new forms of engagement, and new solutions? In this session, Andrew Elvish will take the audience through key findings of the 2024 Genetec State of the Physical Security Industry Report and share insights and best practices for navigating the cloud adoption in physical security. Andrew will discuss the common pitfalls and misconceptions that could limit the potential of the cloud, and the key factors that enable a successful deployment. He will also explore the implications of the cloud for the security industry's future, and how it can foster innovation and collaboration. Whether you are already using the cloud, planning to migrate, or still considering your options, this session will help you understand the cloud's impact on physical security and how to make the most of this period of rapid change.

Beyond 3rd parties: Big data and comprehensive supply chain risk management

Session description: Supply chain risks have been notoriously difficult to comprehensively assess and monitor - especially beyond the immediate 3rd parties. However, growing supply chain complexity along with geopolitical and regulatory burdens have led to increasing risks and disruptions along supply chains. The need for a timely, comprehensive and flexible supply chain model is therefore higher than ever.

In this Innovation session we will explore:
● How large data can help better map, assess and monitor supply chain risks
● Can large data be analysed through a risk lens - and can we use natural language processing models to extract risk events and data from large data sets?
● Why speed and flexibility matter in supply chains - why almost-real time alerting of supply chain risks is essential?

From data to insight – Leveraging AI for enhanced control room efficiency

We live in an age of data overload - every second, numerous sensors, cameras, and systems generate a wealth of information. But extracting meaningful insights from this data manually is a daunting task. Here is where AI steps in!

Imagine a control room where vast amounts of data from various sources are seamlessly integrated and analyzed in real-time. Picture a system that not only identifies patterns and anomalies but also provides intelligent recommendations to operators, enabling them to make better decisions and respond swiftly to changing circumstances. While the potential benefits of AI in control rooms are immense, we must also address the challenges that come with its implementation – from data quality and integration to ethical considerations and change management. To overcome the challenges the break down of old structures, technical solutions and new ways of working together are needed.

Working in War-Torn Ukraine: What Your Country Security and Duty of Care Plan Should Include
14:00 - 14:45

The war of Russia against Ukraine and the economic sanctions have daunting, unprecedented consequences, and challenges to corporate security in Europe. After the initial shock, companies realized that the war would be prolonged. Thus, they returned to work in Ukraine. Despite disruptions in electricity and utilities, bombardments of civil infrastructure, logistical chain interruptions, companies continue to operate. These imposed additional responsibilities on security directors. To be better prepared for compliance and insurance, a company should have a substantial Country Security Plan mirroring the personnel protection and awareness measures. Emergencies, CBRN, natural disaster response, and recovery plans should incorporate the BCM and BCP if the company wishes to successfully operate up to the best international standards and practices in war-torn Ukraine.

From Travel Risk Management to People Risk Management

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.

Consolidating all Security Activities to Create a New, Business Enabling Security Department
15:45 - 16:30

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.

Digital Twin: A New Approach for Business Driven, Agile Security
13:40 - 14:25

Adoption of mobile services, biometry and cloud solutions, are driving interface standardisation, promising a rich tapestry of interchangeable functionality. Popular trends are a present-day reality, constantly transforming our businesses. But how can you respond to these changing demands from business and what are the actual implications for physical security?
In order to address the dynamic nature of business, and ever-changing threat landscape, we need a way to simulate, verify and validate potential security solutions. This requires a foundation that promotes intelligent analysis and facilitates rapid adaption.
By applying a digital twin, you create a virtual representation of your security, providing instantaneous answers to real world questions. The application of modern-day techniques elevates your security to the next level, ensuring real added business value.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Objective 1. Understanding dynamic business needs - Participants will comprehend the inevitable changes in business and the need, as security, to adapt in order to remain relevant in the market.
Objective 2. Apply an agile approach to security - Participants will understand how to apply an adaptive, iterative approach to security. They will receive step-by-step plan as to how this can be achieved and the type of challenges that can be addressed using this approach.
Objective 3. Demonstrate the need for a virtual model - Participants will receive an explanation of how a virtual model, digital twin, can be applied to their specific physical security organisation and can be used to facilitate security professionals when creating or changing security policies.

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

Everyday Use of Artificial Intelligence in Video Surveillance Systems. Myth or Reality.

The topic of artificial intelligence has become increasingly popular. Nearly every company offers solutions that include AI. And that also creates a lot of myths and unrealistic expectations. We are going to look at what AI means for video surveillance systems, discuss the benefits and solutions as well as the challenges that come with it.

How to Manage Crisis Situations Professionally – Two Best-Practice Examples in the Health & Finance Industry

What would you do if you were a hospital amidst a mass-casualty incident and had to get as many physicians as possible into your filling surgery rooms immediately? What if you were the security officer in a large financial institution and are dealing with a robbery or a bomb threat. How do you coordinate and communicate with your crisis team and emergency responders at the same time? In this talk we will take a deeper look into how two very different organisations are tackling their challenges with alerting and crisis management.

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. In particular, we focused on how the data collected by access control systems can be used to better effect.

During this session, I’ll explain our benchmark process and provide some highlights from the conclusions.

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.
