Date: Wednesday 16th June 2021 Time: 10:00am Details: This webinar is for Security Institute Members and guests About this event...  Managing Insider Risk through a Pandemic In this week's webinar we are joined by David BaMaung and Ian Crossley Co-Chairs of our Insider Risk Special Interest Group (IRSIG). The Pandemic over the last year and a half has changed the way we work and live. It has presented challenges and additional risks, and this webinar will focus on the area of people risk. How do we ensure that our organisations remain secure from attack and infiltration by both external threat actors and staff members who try and work against it? How do we ensure that non-intentional insider activity by staff, due to the changing work environment is mitigated against? The role of people in an organisation has never been more important and we will identify some of the key risks and how they can be managed.

23.06.21 - Webinar - Crowded Places / Publicly Accessible Locations (PALs)

Date: Wednesday 23rd June 2021 Time: 3:00pm Details: This webinar is for Security Institute Members and guests About this event...  Crowded Places / Publicly Accessible Locations (PALs) Head of NaCSTO – Superintendent Adam Thomson If you are responsible for safety or security at a Crowded Place, this is for you….. The Policy towards protecting publicly accessible locations (PALs) is shifting. UK Government and NaCTSO are moving away from a model where specific sites are prioritised to one where the operating structure is set up to improve the protection of the public wherever they go. The proposed introduction of the Protect Duty and the design and implementation of the PALs future operating model (FOM) is likely to result in a significant uplift in responsibility for many organisations that operate, or operate within, a publicly accessible place. The current Crowded Places model meets the needs of the larger organisations, the PALS model will meet the need of existing and emerging threats and also the needs of the many new, and often much smaller, organisations so they are better able to protect themselves, their customers and the public. Please join the CT SIG to listen to Superintendent Adam Thomson, the Head of NaCTSO and one of the main architects of the model, to hear of the work ongoing with the Homeland Security Group to deliver Publicly Accessible Locations. A future model to better protect the UK from terrorist attack.
