The answer to securing IT networks and attaining GDPR compliance The benefits of IoT are well known; the cyber security vulnerabilities it potentially invites are less well documented. With cybercrime an ever-growing threat, businesses worldwide face tougher security challenges daily. One recent and concerning example highlights just how easy hackers found breaking into IT networks – a school’s CCTV system was compromised and live footage of its pupils streamed online for all to view. This type of cybercrime could affect all connected technology, including surveillance and physical security, but steps can be taken to minimise the opportunistic threat from hackers. Axis Communications will be hosting an event to address how a privacy by design approach to projects helps promotes privacy and data protection compliance. Taking place on 13 July 2018 in Dublin, this free seminar will highlight how to ensure the security of your IT networks. It will also discuss compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Privacy by design is an approach that encourages data protection and security from the outset of any project or implementation. Unfortunately, these issues are all too often an after-thought or ignored altogether. With the arrival of the GDPR, privacy by design now sits centre stage – non-compliance is a risk that simply can’t be taken. It is important to understand that GDPR compliance and cybersecurity go hand-in-hand. For example, the deployment of security systems that capture and store Personally Identifiable Information (PII) can lead to non-compliance if not correctly secured. Backdoors can be created, leaving businesses vulnerable to a breach. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as 100% unbreachable in today’s connected world. This is shown by the swathe of data breach headlines that too regularly make the news. However, any solution built with a privacy by design ethos can help protect against cyber attacks, and significantly reduce the risks. Axis Communications’ event has been designed to help businesses navigate this ever-increasing threat landscape. We’ll discuss why cybersecurity should always be a priority when deploying or upgrading a system, and help consultants, end users and systems integrators to get a better understanding of privacy by design. We’ll also discuss GDPR and its day-to-day implications for businesses. Axis Communications’ privacy by design event takes place on 13 July 2018 at the Crown Plaza, Dublin, Ireland. I’ll be hosting the event and will be joined by my colleague Steven Kenny, Industry Liaison - Architecture & Engineering (A&E) at Axis and an expert on cybersecurity and digital video surveillance.

ASIS Ireland - Citywest Hotel Friday May 25th 11.00 > 13.00hrs Licensing of security consultants is due to commence Q1 2019. Over the past 9 months the chairman has been in touch with the PSA regarding the licensing of security consultants and in particular what format licensing will follow. It is envisaged that the licensing of consultants will follow the same requirements as with all other sectors currently licensed. Given the scope of the consultants work, 'a one shoe fits all' will not suffice and or work. We have seen other sectors of the industry been decimated because of over regulation and or from the burden placed on companies/individuals to attain licensing, in particular the financial implications of meeting licensing requirements in their current form. Should licensing follow suit with other sectors such as manned guarding then will there be a value add in been licensed or will licensing of the consultant favour the few and everyone else retires early? Yes Consultancy is specialised and commands a good knowledge base of one's chosen field/s of expertise. There is a case for licensing, however the consultancy sector needs to be to the forefront in determining the licensing regime and the standards that should apply. Consultants need to develop the standard thats applicable and not something that is plagiarised or ill thought out and put in place just for the sake of licensing. We can expect no grandfather acceptance (free license) for those of us who have been in the industry longer than we may care to remember. Given that ASIS Ireland represents approx. 35+ consultants ( over 1/3 third of the current membership make up) it is vital that we engage with the PSA. The chairman has highlighted ASIS Ireland with the CEO of the PSA and requested that it wishes to be represented in future discussions concerning the licensing of consultants. Following initial discussions the PSA is now forming a working party group to discuss and mandate for consultancy licensing and standards. In recent correspondence from the PSA to the chairman, he was invited to be part of the working party group (representing ASIS Ireland). It is not known who or what other parties will form the working group, we have to hope that it will be likeminded organisations and individuals who will be representative of the collective. It is expected that the first meeting of the working group will take place late may, we await clarification on this. In the interim, a sub committee has been formed to represent ASIS Ireland and security consultants. The Committee consists of: Chairman - John Bailey. Secretary -Pat Nolan. Treasurer - Joe Cully & Military Liaison Michael Murphy. In order to be prepared for the working party discussions, ASIS Ireland needs to enter these discussions with a mandate and a program for achieving the best outcome for our members and consultants in general. Getting started - The representative committee will hold a meeting on Friday May 25th at the Citywest Hotel. Nass Road from 11.00 > 13.00. the purpose of this meeting will be to solely brain storm and form the basis of a mandate from the members for us to take to the working party and the PSA. Everyone with an interest or stake in security consultancy licensing is welcome to attend and help us with the mandate. We would be grateful if you could let us know if you can attend this briefing in the event we may need to book a private room to accommodate numbers etc. Please email the chairman - john.jbailey@outlook.com We have a voice - lets voice it so others will hear it - listen and take note!
