Webinar - Biometrics and the threat to law enforcement


SYI
Join us for one of our first webinars of 2021, and kick-off your CPD for the year ahead. In this webinar, David Burge will be joining us to discuss the findings of his research into Biometrics and Law Enforcement, which was conducted as part of his dissertation for his MSc Information Security from Royal Holloway University. Now working in a US biometrics technology company based out in Malta, David draws on his experience as a former operational law enforcement officer and merchant banking security risk professional. The research topic looked at the privacy implications to law enforcement officers from ubiquitous biometrics and social media. David will discuss how his research explores the ways in which combining biometrics and social media profiles can harm an undercover operative’s alias, and that this can pose not just cyber or virtual but physical security risks to their personal life by revealing their true identity. Then linked to this, David's research also went on to explored the threats to victims and witnesses protected under witness protection programs. During the webinar David will be discussing his findings in detail, and as with all Institute webinars their interactive nature will mean you can ask any questions you may have. You can earn 2 CPD points for attending this webinar.

Webinar - Creating a Level Playing Field


SYI
In this weeks webinar we are joined by Michelle Russell of the SIA. The good work of the vast majority of security businesses is being undermined by some companies who use illegal practices or bend the rules to take work away from businesses who are working correctly. Michelle will explain what the SIA are doing to combat these organisations, and the people in businesses that don’t follow or try to get round the rules and ask what more can be done? She will discuss partnerships with other enforcement agencies and how legitimate businesses can assist the SIA in this work. The discussion will include the role and attitudes of Buyers, sub-contracting, the position of individual security operatives, raising business standards as a differentiation tool, as well as enforcement procedures and the influence of social media. Michelle will challenge the industry to share more information with the SIA and ask whether the current compliance strategies employed by the SIA go far enough. You can earn 2 CPD points for attending this webinar.
