Universities to hire security guards to patrol student streets in crackdown on rowdy parties

Security guards will patrol Fallowfield in a bid to keep rowdy student parties in check, the M.E.N . can reveal. University bosses are paying for patrols in the student suburb during the final few weeks of the summer term.

The visible guardians will be equipped with body worn audio and video recording devices and will be tasked with clamping down on noisy parties and nuisance behaviour.

Residents in Fallowfield1 and Withington2 have issued numerous complaints about anti-social behaviour. And patrol staff first hit the streets last year as part of a pilot scheme during key dates in the first academic term, including Freshers Week and Halloween.

While they don’t have powers to enter student homes or issue fines, uni staff say they’ve helped offer reassurance to residents, deal amicably with disputes, and act as professional witnesses , gathering evidence of anti-social behaviour and presenting it to campus bosses. The pilot – backed by both Manchester University and Manchester Metropolitan University – proved successful as dozens of noisy student homes were warned to quieten down or face further action.

Now campus bosses have agreed to fund a second patrol scheme to take place during the last week of term. The G4S guards will return to the area between May 24 and June 11, following feedback from students, residents and the student unions. In a joint statement, Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Manchester said: The pilot was developed with Manchester City Council and utilised their accredited security provider, G4S.

Following evaluation of the pilot, which included taking feedback from student and non-student residents and both Students Unions, the two universities have agreed to fund a second night patrol pilot between May 24 and June 11, 2017.

A decision about any further continuation of the patrols will be made by the universities over the summer.

Council officers visited 64 properties in the first few weeks of the term last year, handing out warnings to residents over noise complaints. Students living at a property in Old Moat were handed a noise abatement notice forcing them to stop their anti-social behaviour or face further action. The notices can lead to equipment being seized, exclusion from university, or even prosecution.

Residents who welcomed the action said it would benefit both students and other residents. The universities previously stated that they are committed to maintaining positive relationships between students and residents. Almost 400 properties were visited by university, police and council staff during 2015 to warn students to be considerate of their neighbours.

China draft cyber law mandates security assessment for outbound data

BEIJING China’s top cyber authority on Tuesday released a draft law that would require firms exporting data to undergo an annual security assessment, in the latest of several recent safeguards against threats such as hacking and terrorism.

Any business transferring data of over 1000 gigabytes or affecting over 500,000 users will be assessed on its security measures and on the potential of the data to harm national interests, showed the draft from the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC).

The law would ban the export of any economic, technological or scientific data whose transfer would pose a threat to security or public interests . It would also require firms to obtain the consent of users before transmitting data abroad.

The proposed law, which focuses on personal information security, comes just a day after state media reported government rewards of $1,500 to $73,000 for citizens who report suspected spies.

It is also an extension of legislation passed in November formalizing a range of controls over firms that handle data in industries the government deems critical to national interests.

Business groups have criticized the November law, which is effective from June, calling rules “vague” and claiming they unfairly target foreign companies with stringent requirements.

Chinese officials denied that the November law targets foreign firms.

Under the rules released on Tuesday, sensitive geographic data such as information on marine environments would also be subject to scrutiny . Destination countries and the likelihood of oversees tampering would also be factored in to any assessments.

The draft is open for public comment until May 11.

Microsoft Releases Azure Blueprint To Support UK Government …

Microsoft says its Azure Blueprint for the UK Government s Cloud Security Principles will provide the highest level of security for cloud services. Azure Blueprint for the UK Government details how services built on Microsoft s cloud platform1 implement the 14 cloud security principles2 published by the UK s National Cyber Security Centre, which include practices around data governance, authentication and operational security.

The Azure Blueprint UK Government Customer Responsibilities Matrix outlines how Azure implements security controls designed to satisfy each security principle and assists customers in understanding how they may implement safeguards within their Azure solution3 to fulfill the requirements of each principle where they hold a responsibility, said Matt Rathbun, chief information security officer for Azure Government. Microsoft has also released a Blueprint compliance architecture ARM (Azure Resource Manager) template on GitHub, which provides a baseline from which customers can build secure environments in line with the cloud security principles4.

In other Microsoft news, business communication service Yammer5 has been integrated into Office 365 Groups, enabling users to connect and communicate with colleagues across their organisation.

When users create a new group in Yammer it will automatically be part of the Office 365 Groups environment, providing a OneNote notebook, Planner for task management, a SharePoint Online site and a document library.

All shared resources can be access directly from Yammer by all group members, with group membership queries based on Azure Active Directory attributes such as role, location and manager.

This integration between Yammer and Office 3656 Groups affects customers who have enforced Office 365 identity in their networks, and have only one Yammer network associated with their Office 365 tenant, added Connie Woo, product marketing manager at Yammer.

The full rollout of Office 365 Groups will take place in phases, which will connect Office 365 Groups7 with existing non-connected Yammer groups and remaining Office 365 tenants.

You can also look forward to integration with Outlook Calendar as well as greater enhancements to Yammer integration with SharePoint Online and Planner.
