Disbanding your security team may not be an entirely dumb idea

Disbanding your security team may not be an entirely dumb idea, because plenty of other people in your organisation already overlap with their responsibilities, or could usefully do their jobs. That’s an idea advanced by analyst firm Gartner’s vice president and research fellow Tom Scholtz, who has raised it as a deliberately provocative gesture to get people thinking about how to best secure their organisations. Scholtz’s hypothesis is that when organisations perceive more risk, they create a dedicated team to address it . That team, he said, grows as the scope of risk grows . With business quickly expanding their online activities, that means lots more risk and lots more people in the central team .

Which might do the job but also reminded Scholtz that big teams are seldom noted for efficiency. He also says plenty of businesses see centralised security as roadblocks . I met one chief security officer who said his team is known as the ‘business prevention department’, Scholtz told Gartner’s Security and Risk Management Summit in Sydney today. He therefore looked at how security teams might become less obstructive and hit on the idea of pushing responsibility for security into other teams . One area where this could work, he said, is endpoint security, a field in which many organisations have dedicated and skilled teams to tend desktops and/or servers .

Data security is another area ripe for potential devolution, as Scholtz said security teams often have responsibility to determine the value of data and how it can be used, as do the teams that use that data . Yet both teams exist in their own silo and duplicate elements of each other’s work . Giving the job to one team could therefore be useful. He also pointed out that security teams’ natural proclivities mean they are often not the best educators inside a business, yet other teams are dedicated to the task and therefore excellent candidates for the job of explaining how to control risk. Scholtz’s research led him to believe that organisations will still need central security teams, but that devolution is unlikely to hurt if done well .

Indeed, he said he’s met CIOs who are already making the idea happen, by always looking for other organisations to take responsibility for tasks they don’t think belong in a central technology office. Making the move will also require a culture that sees people willing to learn, fast, and take on new responsibilities . Organisations considering such devolution will also need strong cross-team co-ordination structures, plus the ability to understand how to integrate security requirements into an overall security solution design.

Even those organisations who ultimately see such devolution as too risky, Scholtz said, can still take something away from the theory, by using it to ensure that business unit or team leaders feel accountable for securing their own tools .

Devolving security can also help organisations identify which security functions have been commoditised and are therefore suitable for outsourcing.

Man threatens to slit security guard’s throat and kill his daughters in terrifying racist attack

A dad launched a shocking tirade of racist abuse at a security guard after being caught trying to steal 14 from a coffee shop’s tips jar. In a desperate bid to fuel his addiction to drugs and alcohol, Jason Palmer, 45, attempted to swipe 14.98 worth of tips from Caff Nero in St Stephens Shopping Centre.1

After he was apprehended, he went on to racially insult and threaten to kill a member of the caf s security team in a disgraceful outburst on March 15. Lisa McCormick, prosecuting at Hull Crown Court2, said: He placed his hands into the tips jar but after a security officer spotted him and tried to stop him, the defendant threw the coins on to the ground and told the officer to remove his hands from him.

With the security officer trying to restrain him, the defendant said, ‘get off me you f****** n***** . I am going to kill your daughters . I am going to slit your throat and I am going to kill you.

He also called him a black b****** and threatened to kill the security guard s mother before a PCSO came to help apprehend and restrain Palmer. After being interviewed by police, Palmer was banned from entering any retail premises in Hull city centre3 and was released on bail on March 16.

However, just two days later, the defendant assaulted a member of the security team at Sainsbury s Local in Princes Avenue4 after being ejected from the supermarket. Palmer, who had taken a drug called G , described in court as a ‘legal high’ and drunk a bottle of Bacardi, also tried to throw a bin at the security guard and launched a wave of expletives at him before being arrested.

The defendant was subsequently banned from the supermarket and released on bail for a second time . However, on March 26, Palmer stole meat from the same store. He then went on to threaten his pregnant key worker on March 27 after she asked him to leave a property he had been evicted from in Washington Street, off Beverley Road.5

Miss McCormick said: She arrived to find the defendant in the bath . He was asked to leave but he said you will have to f****** get me out from here.

Fearing violence, the worker went into the garden so she could phone the police6 but the defendant followed armed with a metal bar before leaving on his bicycle to evade the authorities. On March 29, his crime spree came to an end after he was apprehended and placed in custody after breaking down the door of a flat. Palmer, who appeared to Hull Crown Court7 via a video link from HMP Hull, pleaded guilty to assault, theft, threatening behaviour, criminal damage and a racially aggravated section four public order offence.

Claire Holmes, who represented Palmer in court, said his life had been blighted by an addiction to drugs and alcohol. She also argued Palmer, who has a 12-year-old son, was high on drugs when he committed his spree of crimes. However, Miss Holmes said Palmer has turned his life around by gaining NVQs in prison and becoming clean after moving to a drug-free ward.

Palmer also urged Recorder Jeremy Hill-Baker to not sentence him to any more time behind bars. Speaking via a video link, he said: I don t want to be like this . I want to change my life.

I took drugs and I was violent but I m not on any drugs now and I ve got a chance of going to get treatment when I get out.

I don t know why I said those things other than because I was on drink and drugs .

I know I can do it sir.

Despite this, Recorder Hill-Baker was unconvinced about Palmer s ability to reform due to his appalling criminal record as he jailed him for 12 months.

He said: History demonstrates that you have repeatedly offended on bail and while you were in breach of a community order.

It is not proportionate or reasonable to afford you the opportunity of a community sentence.

Robbers flee with 15k after attacking security guard

BRUTAL robbers knocked a security guard to the ground and stole 15,000 he was carrying. The security guard, aged 44, had collected the money from the post office in College Road, Handsworth1 and was walking back to his van when he was knocked to the ground by two men. They wrestled the cash box, which contained around 15,000, from his grip before jumping into a waiting Audi A4 estate which sped away.

The getaway Audi was shortly found in Woodend in Handsworth Wood. It had been driven on stolen number plates. The incident happened just before 9am on Wednesday, August 16.
