Safety and security aspirations
s the industry prepares to congregate at Gallagher Convention Centre this month for Securex South Africa 2017, it’s probably not a bad idea to look beyond the trade market and zone in on the needs of end-users and the consumers of security services. In recent years, South Africa has had the dubious honour of reaching top spots on the lists of countries where its own citizens don’t feel safe. In fact, in the 2015 Gallup Global Law and Order Report, South Africa ranked 138th out of 141 countries for its capacity to maintain law and order. The most recent Stats SA Victims of Crime survey found that the most feared type of crime is house robbery, because citizens fear the threat of physical violence, including assault, rape, torture and murder. Is it any wonder then that faith in policing services has decreased and that those who have the means to afford it are turning towards the private security sector for protection? Following the release of the Victims of Crime Survey in February, Pali Lehohla, the statisticiangeneral, at Stats SA said the last time it had been checked, the police budget was R30-billion and the public was spending about R45billion to protect itself. According to the survey, about 50 per cent of households take physical protection measures at home to protect
themselves from crime. About 11.4 per cent of households employ private security services and 5.5 per cent of people now carry a weapon to protect themselves – compared to 5.1 per cent in 2011. In October 2011, UCT The Unilever Institute of Strategic Marketing released the results of an 18-month long study on consumer aspirations, and noted the advent of an aspirations crisis. The current South African aspiration crisis should come as no surprise, as consumers struggle daily with the reality of simply not being able to afford what they want. A situation that is bound to worsen given our brand-new Junk Status rating. The UCT The Unilever Institute of Strategic Marketing says the concept of “aspirations” is not easily defined as each person has their own definition and understanding of the term. Respected marketer, Andy Rice defines this term as the desire to change your current circumstance and move to a better state. General consensus points towards improving one’s current state of living and improving the way one lives his or her life as the general definition. The role of marketers is to meet those needs. But what are consumers really aspiring for, especially when marketers assume that their consumers are “People Like Us”. “In South Africa we are faced with a very diverse situation where our poor and rich are literally poles apart,” says Professor John Simpson, director and co-founder of the UCT Unilever Institute of Strategic Marketing. Speaking at a networking breakfast, hosted by the South African Council of Shopping Centres (SACSC) in May 2017, Professor Simpson said there are eight aspirations his research has revealed among consumers.
Statements made or opinions expressed in articles in Security Focus Africa do not necessarily reflect the official views of the Security Association of South Africa (SASA) nor those of any of the other security associations listed in Security Focus Africa. Similarly, advertising in this publication does not imply in any way endorsement or approval by these security associations of any products or services. It is the policy of the Security Association of South Africa that any office-bearer who has an executive position in a company, or companies, which supply security products or services should on no account allow his position to be used to promote his company or its objectives in the editorial content of Security Focus Africa, the official journal of the Association. If, at any time, an office-bearer’s position has been quoted in relation to his company or product, this does not imply the Association’s approval or involvement.
SECURITY FOCUS AFRICA | MAY 2017
These aspirations are stability, belonging, freedom, comfort, respect, experiences, health and giving back. “Consumers aim to improve their circumstances, they aspire to it. This is the reason why a particular consumer will be targeted by a marketer.” He adds that some marketers do not understand consumer aspirations fully. “It is assumed that ‘one size fits all’ – whether you are marketing to a well-off person or a poor person, the same marketing exercise is used because it is assumed that both people have the same aspirations. “The fact of the matter is there are a lot of aspirations which are common – whether you’re rich or poor, but the way they are played out is very different,” says Professor Simpson. Is it possible for South Africa’s private security industry to also take something out of consumer research studies such as this one? We know that South Africans have a deep-seated need to feel safe and secure. Examples include building higher walls, installing perimeter fencing, alarms, cameras, armed response, and guarding. And for the lucky few, there are secure estates as well. But what about those communities that do not have the resources for high-tech security technology? Proactive community members that spend time establishing community policing forums and the establishment of “neighbourhood watch” groups and other community forums to protect communities speaks volumes about people’s need to feel safe. The extent to which the private security industry has a role in proactive policing that can possibly benefit all South Africans is an issue that is receiving increasing attention. Given its value, resources and manpower, the role the private security industry can play in crime prevention is certainly significant. Let’s hope the state powers that be start to identify the private industry as a potential ally, rather than a threat that may dismantle their power.

Challenges facing SA’s private security industry South Africa’s private security industry is one of the largest in the country, providing guarding, monitoring, armed reaction, investigating and other security-related services to private individuals and companies.
ver the years there has been tremendous growth in the private security industry, not only in South Africa, but also in the rest of the world. The private security industry in South Africa is among the largest in the world with more than 9 000 registered companies, 450 000 registered active private security guards and a further 1.5 million qualified (but inactive) guards. Studies have shown that South Africa has 2.57 private security personnel for every police employee. This is attributed by some to the country’s high levels of crime, a lack of trust between members of the public and the SAPS, and a lack of investment from government towards the development of the SAPS. According to Tony Botes, administrator at the Security Association of South Africa

(SASA), the biggest challenges currently facing the local private security industry, include legislation, training and compliance.
Legislation The private security industry has an ongoing volatile relationship with its regulatory authority. During 2012, former Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa launched the Private Security Industry Regulation Act Amendment Bill, 2012, which the Minister said intended to regulate control of the rapidly expanding private security industry. However, since its introduction, the bill has been widely criticised by the security sector for not addressing some of the “real challenges” associated with operating within the local private security context. One of the clauses in the bill – which private security companies are strongly opposed to – requires at least 51 per cent local ownership of foreign-owned private security companies. The private security industry is still trying to rally opposition to the proposed amendment bill that would ban majority foreign ownership of security companies in South Africa. The SA Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SACCI) has added that the bill would single-handedly devastate South Africa’s economy and public finances. The industry is the largest employer in the formal private sector, more or less matching all mines and quarries put together. Foreign companies would probably not settle for selling down to 49 per cent in all their local subsidiaries, but rather leave the country altogether. The bill has been awaiting President Jacob Zuma’s signature for more than two years and SASA says the delay seemed to indicate that government was taking the arguments against the bill seriously. “While the industry welcomes the opportunity to work more closely with government towards effective crime prevention, the new bill did not address any of the challenges that currently plague the industry, including the unprecedented
SECURITY FOCUS AFRICA | MAY 2017
growth of illegal or ‘fly-by-night’ security firms,” says Mr Botes. “Furthermore, while new regulation is all good and well, if there is no enforcement of these regulations by PSIRA, then unethical security firms continue to operate as they please.”
Training Currently, the industry faces low barriers to entry with a surplus of unskilled individuals seeking work in the private security industry. “While the industry has mobilised itself in an effort to professionalise the industry, most training still needs to be completed inhouse by the security company employer to ensure that security officers are competent to work on client sites,” adds Mr Botes. “Training can be costly and timeconsuming and after investing significant resources in security officers, a great deal of them are still lost to unregistered companies or other industries,” he added.
Compliance SASA says the greatest threat still facing the private security industry in South Africa has been the rise of a number of companies that operate illegally within the sector. “These fly-by-night operators do not comply with PSIRA regulations and regularly undercut those compliant service providers when it comes to quoting and tendering for security services to consumers, be they private individuals or businesses,” says Mr Botes. Various associations within the private security industry, including the Security Association of South Africa (SASA) have worked long and hard to spread the message of compliance to consumers, making them aware of the problem, and also by trying to eradicate these noncompliant operators by reporting them to PSIRA. SASA says it has also embarked on a national membership drive and awareness campaign to make the consumers of security services more aware of the risk of using non-compliant services providers.

CALLISTO, LX20G-5C & EPX400 Failure to arm – can I afford to wait a week for the technician? Another false alarm, or is there an intruder this time? Did I switch off the geyser? These are questions which plague our minds when it comes to our safety and monthly spend. receiving alarm signals. If the user does not install AVA, they will nevertheless receive alarm notifications, and be able to remotely configure the alarm system, via SMS. The Callisto can be configured using preset parameters through a Bluetooth dongle and smartphone. This ensures consistency in the set-up and saves time in the installation.
CTIVE TRACK, in association with EBS Africa Security Solutions, offers you peace of mind when it comes to residential and commercial security. Active Track is proud to be launching the Callisto, a hybrid alarm control panel with integrated GPRS transmitter, and LX20G5C and EPX400, remotely-controlled, userfriendly transmitters, at Securex 2017.

The LX20G-5C transmitter provides an innovative solution to improve performance and reduce costs of installation and services. The LX20G-5C is a microprocessor for real-time data transmission which can simulate a telephone line (PSTN) with transmission on a GSM signal. The LX20G-5C can transmit data via GPRS, doing away with the need for a PSTN network. Costs are saved by remote technical control of control panels, remote configuration and firmware upgrades, not having to rely on GSM voice communication – GPRS transmission generates up to 17 times less cost than a CSD connection (Circuit Switched Data) – and not requiring the use of a telephone line or PSTN modem. Further, the LX20G-5C is not supported by a single control panel, but can be integrated into almost any control panel, thereby limiting costs. The time-saving benefits of the LX20G5C are equally impressive. Users receive a faster response to any irregularities in the operation of the control panel, benefit from remote checks by the monitoring station on the proper functioning of the control panels, enjoy efficient verification of false alarms from the monitoring station, and remote su-

pervision of the quality of work performed by the installer. The time and cost-saving advantages rely on the OSM server located in the monitoring station, and the GSM voice/GPRS connections between it and the control panel. In addition to the above, the data transmission reliability is stronger than traditional systems, due to multiple transmission channels such as GSM voice, GPRS and SMS. The array of channels enables automatic retrieval of the connection with the monitoring station.
EPX400 The EPX400 is a cutting-edge, multi-functional transmitter which can be tailored to the needs of any industry. It transmits packet data in real-time using GSM, GPRS and SMS channels, and Ethernet. While it is available in basic and full-option versions, both rely on support carried out by the OSM server located in the monitoring sta-
tion. The OSM server acts as an independent receiver that ensures complete transfer reliability thanks to redundancy. The basic version of the EPX400 offers a 2G module, three transmission channels: Ethernet, GPRS/SMS and Voice, nine inputs (EOL/ DEOL), two outputs (one OC and one relay) and a power supply on the board. The full-option EXP400 has expanded on the basic version, and boasts the following further properties: a 2G or 2G-and-3G module on the board (UMTS 5 band), dual SIM, remote control of control panels by the monitoring station, remote switching of external GSM antennas for jamming detection or poor signal, over-voltage protection of PSTN line and a Radioline on the board. The EPX400 is time and cost-efficient. This is evident by the simple and fast reconfiguration via SMS, GPRS or CSD, diagnostic mode for the installer, remote technical inspections and servicing by the monitoring

station, sent text messages quantity control and incoming messages retransmission. The information transmission is extremely reliable as a result of SIA Level 2, ContactID and Ademco Express protocols, and reliance on SMS. The EPX400 also fares well when it comes to security and quality. It offers protection against unauthorised device access, encryption of transmitted data by AES standard, automatic retrieval of the connection with the monitoring station and transmission protection in the case of server damage. The Callisto, LX20G-5C and EPX400 are each available on a rental model, with no capital expenditure or additional maintenance fees required.

SPOTLIGHT ON SECURITY DOGS
Security dogs know the law Security dogs, trained for various tasks, are playing a vital role in the South African security industry by providing an increased level of protection, adding to the ability of the security guard and serving as his first line of defence.
ccording to Clint O’Reilly, from Couver Security, the use of patrol dogs is increasing due to the positive benefits the dogs provide. “A lot of companies don’t want to use guns anymore because this makes the security guards a target as the criminals want their guns. Dogs are a big deterrent because they can warn the guard of an intruder using their highly developed senses and protect him so he has time to get help using his radio.” While using security dogs may seem the answer, it is important to ensure that the security service provider you have chosen has the necessary qualifications to ensure legally trained dogs and handlers.
In terms of Section 38, persons who do not ensure that their service provider complies with the relevant Act, are also guilty of a criminal offence, and both providers and clients may be liable to a fine, imprisonment or both. In terms of other legislation, security dogs are covered under the Animals Protection Act (No. 71 of 1962) and the Performing Animals Protection Act (PAPA), (No. 24 of 1935). Security providers who use dogs must also apply for an annual PAPA licence and certificate at the Magistrate Court in which they are situated or operational. The director of a company must apply for a licence on behalf of the company and dog trainers must apply for their own licences as they are accredited separately. They may not operate under the same licence and certificate unless they are the same person.
Security Guards: • Security guards who are required to handle a service dog must complete training at an accredited PSIRA training facility. • They should have completed an educational programme which includes all the relevant competencies for the specific grade of security service needed; learn how to take care of a service dog to ensure its welfare and be competent at handling a service dog. • They must have a certificate stating the level of competency of dog training (DH 1 – DH 4 - patrol work; DH 5 for substance detection work (explosives, narcotics).
PSIRA (Private Security Industry Regulations Authority) is responsible for quality assurance of training of handlers and dogs for the private security industry in South Africa. All security service providers are required to be registered with PSIRA. SASSETA (Safety and Security Sector Education and Training Authority) is responsible for the training programmes offered to dog handlers. Their role is to ensure quality provision of skills development and qualifications for those in the safety and security environment seeking recognised industry qualifications. In terms of the PSIRA Act No. 56 of 2001, there are specific requirements that must be adhered to by every security provider who wishes to provide dogs and/or handlers. Failure to have accreditation and comply with the set standard of services, constitutes improper conduct in terms of the Code of Conduct for Security Service Providers, as well as being a criminal offence.
• Working dogs (DH1 to DH5) must have positive identification (a tattoo or microchip) and a certificate issued by an accredited instructor at an accredited training centre, stating the date of certification and level of training.
SECURITY FOCUS AFRICA | MAY 2017
Security Service Providers: • A security service provider who supplies dogs and trained handlers must be accredited by PSIRA as a security dog supplier.
Clients: • Clients who make use of dogs and/or handlers must ensure that their security provider complies with the relevant legislation to protect themselves against prosecution. The need for a PSIRA certificate is explained by a ruling delivered in a case heard by the Constitutional Court of South Africa in 2009. “The sheer size of the private security industry, as well as the coercive

Security dogs are the best line of defence Security officers who work side-by-side with well-trained security dogs experience greater job satisfaction and greater confidence to conduct their duties without the fear of attack.

his is according to Annette van Rensburg, founder of The Security Dogs and Dog Handler Training Centre, based in Marlboro, Sandton. Ms van Rensburg’s love of working with security dogs began during her childhood years in Kenya where her father worked for the Kenya Police Dog Section, and her mother was deeply involved with the Kenya Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. By the age of 11, she was already training and competing in various dog beauty and obedience competitions. After school, Ms van Rensburg offered her services as a security dog consultant to Securicor Kenya Ltd where she was responsible for training dog handlers and ensuring their kennel care and management was up to standard. After moving to South Africa in the 1980s, Ms Van Rensburg had an idea to start her own training centre and, like most entrepreneurs,
power it wields during the regular conduct of its business underscore the need for regulation and adherence to appropriate standards. Close control and management of this massive industry is imperative.” (Case CCT 77/08  ZACC 11)
Monitoring of security dogs SPCA inspectors routinely monitor facilities and operations where security dogs are used and kept and also act upon public complaints. For minor issues, warnings and compliance notices can be served, but if there is a blatant contravention of the Animals Protection Act (APA), criminal charges in terms of this Act can be laid. In accordance to PSIRA regulations and the APA, security dogs should always have fresh water available; have a kennel, not less than 2x3m to sleep in; have up-to-date rabies vaccinations; be provided a vet if needed and never be tied up. In terms of the APA, any police officer or qualified SPCA inspector may at any reasonable time enter and inspect any premises, place or vehicle in which dogs are used for safeguarding are maintained, kept, confined or conveyed and enquire into the methods by which these dogs are controlled, restrained, trained or used. Any person who wilfully obstructs, hampers or interferes in an investigation is liable on conviction to a fine not exceeding R4 000 or to imprisonment for a period not exceeding 12 months. This is in addition to any other penalty imposed for any contravention of the Act. If a company is in violation of the Performing Animals Protection Act, such as operating without a licence, PSIRA may also charge the security service provider in terms of the Improper Conduct Enquiries Regulations for failure to meet the requirements of the statutory Code of Conduct for Security Service Providers. Furthermore, any offence by a provider, or guard, in terms of animal cruelty constitutes a scheduled offence in terms of the Private Security Industry Regulation Act No 56 of 2001. If there has been a finding of guilt in a Criminal Court for an offence involving animal cruelty under the APA, PSIRA may withdraw the registration of the security service provider in terms of Section 26(4) (d) (i) of the PSIRA Act.
had to work long hours in her own time to build up her business. By 1985 she was delivering dogs to site each evening after her day job and collecting the next morning before she started work. By 1990, she had enough resources to build her own kennels and training centre in Marlboro. “Working with dogs makes such an impact on the safety of security officers,” says Ms van Rensburg. “You’re far less likely to get a call at 3am to say the security guard has been attacked and traumatised by intruders,” says Ms van Rensburg. “Security officers who don’t have a security dog angel are at greater risk of injury and even death.” She goes on to say that this ultimately has a greater impact on the security of the premises as well. Customers become unhappy when they suffer losses due to their premises being broken into and the resultant losses and costs associated with stolen equipment is significant. “I can tell you that after more than 32 years of experience in this industry, nothing beats the security that a dog provides. Let’s keep criminals away together. The Security Dogs and Dog Handler Training Centre provides well trained dogs, offers a range of training courses and also provides portable security cages and other equipment,” she concluded.

FOCUS ON SUBSTANCE ABUSE
Can you identify if your employees are functional alcoholics? By Rhys Evans, Director at ALCO-Safe
Most businesses are well aware of the negative impact of alcohol abuse and the dangers of alcohol consumption at the workplace, and are generally capable of recognising the signs of alcoholism in its most common form.
here is a perception that the signs of alcoholism are easily identifiable through certain traits and characteristics, most notably in the deterioration of an alcoholic’s performance and appearance. However, there is a stark difference between identifying a “full blown” alcoholic who displays all of the aforementioned signs, and a “functional” alcoholic, who may display none of them – and, for many businesses, this poses a challenge.
Hiding in plain sight A “full blown” alcoholic is typically recognised by his or her inability to function properly at a basic level. This type of alcoholic generally “clocks out” of day-today life and is invariably easy to spot. Often the odour of alcohol alone can give them away, but they are also usually erratic, not very coherent, and generally appear to be drunk in both looks and mannerisms. In the workplace, a person who has imbibed enough alcohol to be visibly intoxicated, either in a single
occasion or on a regular basis, is easy enough to identify and deal with. Functional alcoholics tend to hide in plain sight, being less easily identified as having an alcohol problem than a “full blown” alcoholic, but often drinking just as much. They usually don’t come across as intoxicated, they appear to be coherent and capable, and they seem quite able to perform normal tasks. In fact, they do such a good job of covering up their problem and portraying normality that often, even if organisations suspect a drinking problem, they tend to not address it as the functional alcoholic seems to have a handle on their work and social life. Typically, functional alcoholics will have built up a tolerance to alcohol over time, which inadvertently fuels their need to consume more to achieve the desired effect. For this reason, functional alcoholics can still ‘get drunk’ at functions while seeming normal the rest of the time, even though they are often entirely dependent on alcohol.
The risks Although the outward behaviour of functional alcoholics can be deceptive, they are constantly under the influence of alcohol, which can cause them to make costly – and sometimes even deadly – mistakes while at
work. Even if a person is able to disguise their alcoholic drinking, they still put themselves and others at risk when they abuse alcohol. There have been several instances of alcohol induced mistakes where the perpetrator was not evidently drunk; shaky-handed surgeons who have left surgical implements inside patients, mothers who have carpooled children and ended up in accidents, pilots who have crash landed passenger-filled aeroplanes – all examples of functioning alcoholics. Mistakes aren’t always as obvious as these, though, and can often be a series of small, seemingly inconsequential errors that appear harmless in isolation but, collectively, can costs companies a lot of money. Alcohol works to slow down a person’s impulses and, given enough time, most functioning alcoholics end up as “full blown” alcoholics. Their reflexes will slow down, along with their attention to their work and other areas of their life. Their focus will dwindle and their attention will drift. Slowly, alcohol will deteriorate their functionality and, in direct response, increase their risk of accidents and mistakes. There is also a far more insidious and subtle risk at play with functional alcoholics, and that is the slow changing of company culture. Functioning alcoholics tend to be the people who always call for after work drinks and who encourage situations where they can openly drink instead of hide their habit. This, in turn, engenders a culture of acceptable drinking in the workplace, often disguised as “team building” or “company bonding”. Eventually, organisations could find themselves hosting frequent drinking sessions, which further increases and spreads the risk of alcohol abuse and resulting mistakes.
The signs Often, organisations suspect that a member of staff may be

FOCUS ON SUBSTANCE ABUSE
a functioning alcoholic, but tend to not do anything about it due to lack of “proof”. It is also uncomfortable to address a problem when the person seems to be functioning perfectly fine and so, many companies “leave well enough alone” – often to their detriment, as described above. The proof, however, is there if one looks closely enough. Functioning alcoholics are experts at disguising their problem. They usually are aware of having a problem and are ashamed of it, hence the need to hide it. Here are some signs that could indicate functional alcoholism: • Smell - they mask any smell of alcohol with things like excessive cologne, breath mints and chewing gum. They can often be found to carry eyedrops on their person at any time. • Excuses – functional alcoholics often find any excuse to have a public drink. They are also often full of excuses for being late, not completing a task or being absent from work. • Sickness – a functional alcoholic will be absent from work frequently due to one or another illness. Alcohol lowers the immune system sand slowly deteriorates a person’s health. Common complaints
include liver problems, stomach illnesses and headaches. • Behaviour – frequent or increasing outbursts at colleagues, a lackadaisical approach to work and responsibility, poor memory or total memory loss and being over gregarious are all common signs of functional alcoholism. • Erratic schedules – these people will often find a reason to leave work early to head to the pub, or have a “drinking lunch”, and will frequently vacillate between being “on the wagon” and at their best behaviour, to falling off again, and being cagey and erratic.
The cure As with any drug and alcohol problem, functional alcoholism is a disease and is not something a person chooses. This is why functioning alcoholics try so hard to hide their affliction – they feel shame and remorse but are unable to control their habit. Companies need to treat these matters with delicacy and sensitivity. They can start by creating an environment that encourages people to come forward if they have a problem. Educational material backed by a confidentiality policy goes a long way to
ensuring that people understand the effects of alcohol and feel safe enough to speak up when they recognise their dependency. Frequent alcohol testing is recommended. However, this should be supported by an assistance programme to avoid negative backlash and an environment of resentment. Organisations should supply their employees with a safe and confidential means to address any negative test results with them and are encouraged to offer help. Providing access to a rehabilitation facility, sufficient sick leave to attend, and ongoing support and therapy can go a long way to not only retaining key skills that the employee may have, but also to prevent relapses and more incidents. Some organisations have incentivised their staff, offering rehab payment plans or assisting with obtaining medical aid assistance for rehab, with much success. We have found that organisations who go above and beyond to assist their employees in overcoming alcoholism tend to have fewer alcohol problems among staff, have a happier and more productive work force, and experience far fewer accidents and errors in their workplace.

are declined due to suspected fraud are believed to in fact be legitimate. This kind of “false decline” affects all parties negatively: the user or shopper experiences frustration; the e-commerce merchant loses business; the financial institution or card issuer potentially loses a customer. Against the disadvantages of RBA, push authentication is coming to the fore as a more secure and user-friendly approach. Not only does this method protect users against fraud, it also creates a trusted channel through which financial service providers can develop their user experience and deploy new services in future. This is a significant win in a consumer environment characterised by rapid change.
Future-proofing your institution
ooming large among the challenges that these providers will face in transitioning to mobile is the issue of security, particularly given the growing sophistication of phishing attacks and fraud. But investing in a mobile security solution need not be a grudge purchase. The right security architecture can also be a powerful enabler – an important step towards differentiating your financial service brand.
What are the options? Regulators across the globe are calling for greater protection for consumers who transact digitally. In the past few years, authentication has been a key regulatory focus, and one of the ongoing debates is over the relative benefits of multi-factor
authentication (MFA) versus risk-based authentication (RBA). Often viewed as a more user-friendly alternative to MFA, RBA is a non-static authentication system that takes into account the profile of the user who is requesting access to the system (their location, historical transacting habits, and so forth) to determine the risk associated with a particular transaction. Advances in machine learning are making this approach highly appealing, as is the low input that RBA requires from the end user – but it is not foolproof. The biggest problem associated with this authentication method is that the assessments it leads to are not always accurate. Recent research by Javelin revealed that nearly a third (30 per cent) of all transactions
Given the furious pace of innovation that is now shaping the mobile sphere, financial service providers have to ensure they are well-positioned to keep up. The best way to achieve this is to invest in a scalable mobile security architecture, created for your institution by a proven industry leader. There are frequently more than a hundred million connections to apps Entersekt secures in certain geographical territories, per month. That’s what a modern architecture helps us achieve with ease. Establishing a secure channel between your users’ mobile devices and your on-premises servers will ensure that users can do anything you dream up for them to do, without the risk of fraud.

ADVERTORIAL: SPARKS & ELLIS
Getting into the right gear Sparks & Ellis believes that a uniform says a lot about your organisation and it can also instil a sense of pride in the wearer while promoting respect and confidence.
his is according to Sparks & Ellis CEO, Sue de Wet who says that balancing budget and quality is a delicate balance when looking for a uniform that not only offers great value for money, but is also great in ever y other way. “A security officer’s uniform is of significant impor tance because it is the element that sets the security officer apart,” says Sue. “While aesthetics do of course play an important role, there are other factors that are critical to a company’s choice of uniform for its security officers. In fact, the appearance of the security officer’s uniform actually plays an important role when it comes to how that guarding company is perceived by the public,” she says.
Providing peace-of-mind Uniforms should provide instant recognition so that, in an emergency situation, and par ticularly in a crowded area, members of the public can spot security staff and will immediately know who to turn to for help. Sue says that it’s also been shown that the presence of a uniformed security officer provides reassurance for other staff and visitors at the premises. A well-presented security officer not only promotes peaceof-mind, but their presence is also a major deterrent for criminal activity.
Pride and belonging Security officers who are well-presented
can feel a sense of pride and a strong affiliation to the company they work for. Being identifiable as par t of a team creates a feeling of professionalism and belonging. In addition, a uniformed security officer is often the ver y first impression that visitors will have when visiting an organisation.
Combining quality and budget requirement When it comes to quoting competitively in an industr y that is largely driven by cost at a time when operating costs are also increasing, Sue says that uniform manufacturers face a major challenge. “While we have access to world-class technology, client budgets can often prohibit the introduction of new fabrics and uniform technology,” she says. “While some companies do also believe that uniforms should be replaced on an annual basis, others believe that they should be adapted with the changing seasons. Sparks & Ellis tries to encourage companies to invest in seasonal uniforms and help extend the life of a uniform in this way.”
Safety first “Uniforms should always comply with safety standards and this is a nonnegotiable factor,” says Sue. Depending on the environment in which the security officer is working there are a couple of critical factors for consideration. Is the uniform breathable; and is it water and fire
resistant? Does the environment in which the security officer is working call for the use of safety shoes with steelcapped toes?
Quality materials Sparks & Ellis says that when considering uniform budgets, companies should never underestimate the impor tance of quality materials, which impact on lifespan and durability. Impor tant factors for consideration include: colour, washable materials, and ease of replacement. “Ensure that the uniform you choose is made of good quality material. Look at the fabric used, as well as the zips and buttons - because this will determine how durable the uniform will be. In the long run – good quality uniforms could save the company from unnecessar y replacement uniform costs,” concludes Sue.
ABOUT SPARKS & ELLIS UNIFORMS Sparks & Ellis is a Level 1 B-BBEEE company owned by The Cape Union Mar t Group and is one of South Africa’s leading uniform suppliers and manufacturers. It specialises in complete uniform solutions and offers clients a head-to-toe ser vice.

Home alarms, panic remotes and gate alarms play a crucial role in home security
eagle Watch urges all residents to keep home alarms, electric fences, and gate alarms on 24 hours a day whenever possible and to always carry their panic buttons on them. Arriving at your gate is when one is most vulnerable, so having your remote attached to the car’s key ring or within easy reach is crucial to your safety. Gate alarms are designed to stay on for 24 hours and play an important part in your safety and security and have proven to be very successful in preventing many possible driveway hi-jackings. They activate silently so when the gate is left open for longer than the pre-set time, the alarm is triggered. “Many robberies and hi-jackings in the suburbs happen during the day whether the homeowner is at home or not.” said Dave Casey, managing director, Beagle Watch. ‘’Keeping the alarm on whenever possible, along with the gate alarm and electric fence is important. When it comes to safety and security, one cannot afford to become complacent. We need to be vigilant at all times.” The derailing of gates remains one of the most common means for robbers to gain entry into a property. Alarming your gates would help prevent this, as well as gate motor theft as the gate alarm is activated as soon as the gate is tampered with. MY

Communities that stand together are safer Communities across South Africa should support their local law enforcement and other security role players. This partnership approach to crime fighting, says Fidelity ADT, has shown successes in the fight against crime.
e work closely with several neighbourhood watches and community organisations across the country. When the public works hand-inhand with their local security companies and the police, there is always a positive difference and generally a much safer community,” says Verena Hulme, district manager (Cape Town North) for Fidelity ADT. “The police and private security companies have limited resources and personnel. They simply cannot be everywhere all the time and depend on communities ‘eyes and ears’ to help them deploy their limited resources in the most effective way possible. “Not everyone has the ability or the appetite to patrol their neighbourhoods at night. But
you can already make a huge difference by merely being observant of your surroundings, and speaking up when you see something that is out of place,” Ms Hulme says. “Take note of any potential safety issues and raise it with your neighbours. This includes everything from broken fences, to open gates, to valuable items left unattended. The same goes for children or vulnerable members of your community – by simply caring for their safety, you can already make a difference.” If there isn’t a community safety group active in your area, Ms Hulme suggests that one should be formed. “For those looking to start a community security group, we encourage you to call on the private security industry to assist.
They have first-hand knowledge of what works having assisted other groups in the past. An integrated approach is also always more successful, so perhaps find out if other groups are already active in neighbouring suburbs, and share ideas with them,” Ms Hulme advises. In those communities that are lucky enough to have neighbourhood watches or similar organisations, it is important to support their activities and attend the meetings they arrange. “By attending community meetings, reading e-mails and voting when called to do so, you can show support for those who have stepped up and are working towards a security solution for you and your loved ones,” says Ms Hulme.

Worldwide ransomware attack Not having had the advantage of being born a millennial, the research for this article was somewhat painstaking and, at the same time, a substantial learning curve. By Peter Bagshawe
annaCry (or Wanna Cry) began affecting computers on a worldwide basis on 12 May 2017. WannaCry is, or was, the largest individual malware attack in history and, according to estimates some 230 000 computers were infected by ransomware in approximately 150 countries. At least one breach in the South African retail sector was recorded. The heaviest concentration of infections, according to Kaspersy Lab (a Russian anti-virus company) happened in Russia, India, Ukraine and Taiwan and, in the main, the computers infected appear to have been running on either Windows XP or Windows Server 13. Both these older operating systems are no longer supported by Windows and, accordingly, routine upgrades and patches are not available for either which means security levels are lower than on more recent operating systems that receive routine updates. Windows has now taken the unusual step of releasing patches for customers still using these systems. The initial infection seems to have been either through a pre-existing vulnerability in the network’s defences, or via a sophisticated phishing attack. In the case of the phishing attack the malware is spread once an e-mail message is opened and the software in the malware executes itself onto the drive. When the malware is executed, it first checks for what is referred to as a kill switch domain name. If it is not found on the computer the ransomware programme
encrypts all data on the drive and then attempts to exploit the identified vulnerability to spread the malware onto random computers using an Internet connection as well as into computers that share the same network. After infection by the ransomware, a message was displayed that advises users that files and data have been encrypted, but would be restored and released on payment of US $300 in bitcoin if paid within three days or US $600 in bitcoin, if paid in seven days. When the seven day period expires, the data is destroyed. The number of computers infected is indicative of a sophisticated attack on a global scale and the entities affected are also surprising. A sample of these would include FedEx, the National Health Services in England and Scotland, the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs, Nissan Motor Manufacturing, United Kingdom, Saudi Telecoms, PeteroChina, Spain’s Telefonica and Renault. All the listed entities are sophisticated operations and their vulnerability to a stealth attack is surprising. The National Health Service was forced to cancel elective procedures, operations and appointments and was unable to dispatch ambulances in some areas. This being done to the health services in one of the top five economies in the world (where it appears that some 90 per cent of NHS computers continue to run Windows XP) by means of an attack on an outdated operating system is an indictment of the health care
system at large and, more particularly, of the technology oversight and audit functions that are in place within the NHS. Turning to the payment extorted for restoration of the data, the use of bitcoin is simultaneously surprising and understandable. Bitcoin is a virtual currency that is tradeable internationally and can be denominated against a currency of choice. Bitcoin is stored in a virtual wallet which is anonymous and the owner of the wallet cannot be traced. However, the wallet is open and balances and transactions can be inspected and monitored with respect to any transaction made. The wallet nominated by the Wanna Cry attackers at the time of writing had received 28 payments and no transactions against any of the wallets had been recorded by the owners of the wallets. The question that needs to be asked is whether the hackers intended to convert or use the bitcoin payments received. Given the number of intelligence agencies, police forces and security agencies monitoring the wallets any transactions, even if coin tumblers (service providers who scramble bitcoin transactions into numerous small pieces to make the transactions hard to track and trace) are used it is highly likely that the wallet owners would be apprehended. The apparent source of the computer code used to write the Wanna Cry software is also interesting. Microsoft has been quoted as attributing the vulnerability of systems to the theft and release of an exploit developed by the American National Security Agency which has developed software to hack into or gather data as part of their ongoing monitoring of perceived international threats to American security. The availability of written code simplified the development of the Wanna Cry and the infected machines would need to have both the EternalBlue exploit and DoublePulsar backdoor loaded onto their systems removed once the system had been decrypted. The rapidity of the spread of Wanna Cry and the extent of the patching, response required and monitoring needed, demonstrate that both vulnerabilities and attacks exploiting these vulnerabilities will continue in the future. The increasing reliance on computers, information technology, operational technology and their interface with people (whether as operators or end users) creates a triangle of interdependency that runs through the fabric of modern society.

The vulnerabilities that are inherent cannot to be removed by merely applying money to the issues; the application of technology will similarly not succeed without user education and acceptance of systems and controls. The breaches in the health care, communications and manufacturing sectors referred to above demonstrate the vulnerability that exists to be exploited. If this demonstrated capability to breach supposedly secure systems is taken through to include sectors such as power generation, power reticulation, water storage and reticulation, financial and retail infrastructure and systems, military logistics, traffic control infrastructure, as well as law enforcement infrastructure, the effective function of a modern society is at threat.

the scenario, it is common knowledge that most of the major states have agencies that develop code and software in order to be able to monitor the activities of users of IT resources. Allegations have been made of third party state interference in the last election of the President of the United States, attempts to manipulate the recent election of French President Macron, and there have also been allegations of involvement by North Korea in the Wanna Cry attack. The development of weapons, whether nuclear, chemical or conventional, requires the availability of specialised infrastructure and are expensive from the research and development stage to their manufacture, delivery, storage and deployment. In direct contrast, the development of
spyware, malware and ransomware requires far less in the way of resources and capital and, at least in the short term, appear to have the ability to interfere with targeted countries at a far higher bang for the buck level than conventional weapons. The above is largely a overview of a topic that, during the research process, proved to be far larger than initially perceived and had a number of potential avenues that had not been expected. Expertise in the IT sector is available and securing computer infrastructure at all levels is now an obvious and essential focus.
