13.07.22 - Webinar: SABRE: Security Assurance in the Procurement and Management of Buildings and Infrastructure

Date: Wednesday 13th July 2022 Time: 10:00am Details: This webinar is for Security Institute Members and guests About this event...  SABRE: Security Assurance in the Procurement and Management of Buildings and Infrastructure   This session will explain the importance of adopting a holistic, integrated and risk-based approach to security for built assets. Using the SABRE framework as a guide, the session will explore how a common methodology can be applied to any asset, irrespective of its lifecycle stage, to provide a measurable and comparable outcome. Owned by the BRE (Building Research Establishment) and operated by The Security Institute, SABRE is an award-winning methodology backed by third-party certification. Led by an independent Assessor, it seeks to advance transparency and professionalism in the management of security risks in the built environment, and in turn provide built asset stakeholders with valuable assurance. Delegates will be introduced to the assessment process, the thematic issues covered, and how to engage with the scheme. Hosted by Gareth Hulmes CSyP MSyI a Chartered Security Professional and Member of the Security Institute. With a background in architecture, crime prevention and more recently technical standards development, he also co-chairs the Institute’s Built Environment Security Special Interest Group.

27.07.22 - Webinar: Protecting VIPs & Physical Assets from Hybrid Threats

Date: Wednesday 27th July 2022 Time: 10:00am Details: This webinar is for Security Institute Members and guests About this event...  Protecting VIPs & Physical Assets from Hybrid Threats   For this webinar we are joined by Constella Intelligence. The threat landscape for physical assets is hybrid: bits & bytes, gates & guards. COVID forced us to reset our approach to risk, and offer digital security when physical protection isn't an option. Principals and VIPs are getting younger, and consequently have bigger digital footprints. Likewise, they're expected to have opinions on polarising global issues. Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals are now a factor in enterprise risk. Critical physical sites are vulnerable to political action, activism and consequences of global public opinion. There's an unmanageable amount of external risk, whilst more and more physical sites and VIPs are deemed too big (or, too connected) to fail. What options are there to absorb and predict digital threats to mobile or fixed assets, within protective services specifically? Join us to find out more!
