Surveying Trends in the Security Integration Market

It’s evident that the majority of security installations are becoming more and more complex. No longer content to monitor and manage separate access control, fire alarm, video surveillance, intrusion, and HVAC control systems, corporate security and technology managers want to consolidate and integrate various disconnected security and facility management systems. At a dramatically increasing pace, the Information Technology department is leading the initiative, particularly given the trend toward convergence of physical and logical security systems.

Defining Physical Access Control Standards

By Terry Gold, Founder, IDAnalyst LLC — I engage in a variety of conversations with manufacturers, integrators, and end users in the physical access control space about systems that must live for a decade or two. Traditionally, technology decisions have been made with heavy influence from existing relationships, cost sensitivity, and feature sets from the […]

Washington Naval Yard Shooting – Case Analysis – Utica College

On 16 September 2013, Aaron Alexis conducted a mass shooting in Building 197 at the Washington Navy Yard. He was a lone shooter killed by police after killing 12 and injuring 8. There were former instances of misconduct and mental issues. These are not considered in issuance of Common Access Card (CAC) or clearance. There were poor installation access control and building security procedures seen as contributing factors. The Attack and Defense Scenarios analyze two main issues. Issue 1: • Could the attack have been substantially more lethal if the shooter had pre-planned and preositioned additional key attack elements thereby increasing the efficiency of the attack? • Could the attack be a diversionary tactic to draw attention away from the true reason, data breach of classified information? Issue 2: • Could the risk of an attack been reduced through a layered defense implementation of X-ray machine/metal detector suites, more security cameras with facial recognition capabilities, and increased access controls (biometrics or improved identification badging)? Analysis of the issues result in the following risk assessment values: • Initial Risk Assessment (Baseline) = 18% • Attack Boost (Worst Case) = 12% increase • Defense Boost (Best Case) = 14% decrease • After applying the Ryan-Nichols Equation the NET value  requires $2.28Million dollars to mitigate the risk of the attack • Implementation of multilayered defense with enhanced access control systems and procedures are recommended Read the rest in the downloadable PowerPoint show file here:   http://treadstone71llc.files.wordpress.com/2013/11/washingtonnavalyardshooting-caseanalysis.ppsx  http://programs.online.utica.edu/programs/masters-cybersecurity.asp

Viscount Systems’ Technology Receives U.S. Government Certification

Viscount Systems, Burnaby, British Columbia, said it received U.S. Government FIPS 201 certification for its new Freedom VeriCert software from the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). Freedom VeriCert is now listed on the FIPS 201 GSA Approved Products List (APL) under the caching status proxy category, making it simpler for U.S. agencies to deploy Freedom […]
