09.02.22 Webinar - Cyber Surveillance: Pegasus Spyware – Everything You Need To Know Or Were Too Scared To Ask

Date: Wednesday 9th February 2022 Time: 10:00am Details: This webinar is for Security Institute Members and guests About this event...  Cyber Surveillance: Pegasus Spyware – Everything You Need To Know Or Were Too Scared To Ask In this week's webinar we are joined by Salt Communications who will be hosting a webinar around the subject of Pegasus Spyware. In this webinar Joe Boyle, CEO at Salt Communications, will explain how hackers exploit Pegasus smartphone spyware and other weaknesses to go around your protection, obtain access to your systems, and steal data and voice information. According to reports, a new variant of the aggressive mobile spyware known as Pegasus has infected the mobile devices of over 50,000 people in 50 nations. Pegasus and other spyware must be safeguarded from enterprise security experts’ mobile endpoints, and ultimately their entire organisation. Salt Communications was formed in 2013 by Joe and other founders who have a shared history in the enterprise security, telecoms, network optimisation and mobile application development. Whilst the market is packed with consumed based encryption communication technologies, the founders of Salt Communications recognised that none of these solutions fit well within an enterprise’s operating framework. Joe's career has been focused on enterprise communications, security and network optimization. He has experienced considerable success bringing innovative new technologies to market, and helping customers adopt those technologies. Before Salt Communications, Joe was the director of product management for Silver Peak Systems and Blue Coat Systems, both in the network optimization space; and before that was employee number 4 at Replify, the first company to virtualize WAN optimization. He worked on secure communications technology at F5 Networks, Aepona (acquired by Intel) and Apion (acquired by Phone.com). Joe holds an MSc in Computational Science from Queen's University Belfast.

16.02.22 Webinar - Working in partnership with the police: What is the Community Safety Accreditation Scheme (CSAS)?

Date: Wednesday 16th February 2022 Time: 10:00am Details: This webinar is for Security Institute Members and guests About this event...  Working in partnership with the police: What is the Community Safety Accreditation Scheme (CSAS)? The Community Safety Accreditation (CSAS) Scheme was introduced by the Police Reform Act 2002 and provided the opportunity for Chief Constable’s of police forces to accredit certain, low level, police powers to individuals in a uniformed, community safety role. This acknowledged the vital role many were contributing towards community safety but who had little or no powers of enforcement. Councils, officials, and private companies alike can apply for accreditation and go through a strict vetting and criteria checks. Alongside accreditation of powers the focus is on closer partnership working between the police, public sector, and private industry. Axien Security became the first private security company to gain CSAS accreditation with Devon and Cornwall Police. The low-level police powers enable Axien staff to tackle anti-social behaviour in specific areas, where once we may have had limited legal ability to do this and increases the flow of information and intelligence sharing with the police through the accreditation. Finally, it enhances the relationship between Axien, as a private security provider, with the police as we are now considered part of the extended police-family which in turn reflects positively on our customers and the security industry at large. This webinar will further explore the accreditation process, the opportunities it provides and highlight the benefits of CSAS Accreditation and how it can help those in private security and the community at large. Darren Hession has been in the security industry since 1999 after a short stint in the Royal Marines, working around the globe for around 21 years conducting Close Protection operations and later becoming the Global Safety and Security Director for a US Defence Contractor. He now is the Director and shared owner of Axien Security Limited, a private security company based in Plymouth, Devon who are CSAS accredited. He holds a master’s degree in Security and Risk Management from Leicester University. Becki Brodest-Nott, CSAS Manager, Devon & Cornwall Police, has been with Devon & Cornwall Police for 12 years in various roles and has held the role of CSAS Manager for the past 5 years. Becki has been instrumental in bringing those who are CSAS Accredited further into the extended police family in Devon & Cornwall and has opened conversations as to the full potential CSAS can bring for partnership working, problem solving and safeguarding.
