Companies warned over cyber security risk

A fast-growing Edinburgh-based fintech company aims to uncover key concerns around the evolving cyber threat landscape in Scotland at an event on the sector being held in Glasgow this week. The Future of Cyber Security Scotland Conference is taking place on Thursday and issues lined up for discussion include reducing risk and ensuring compliance, data breaches on the so-called dark web and encouraging a better gender balance in the industry. Among speakers and panellists are Don Randall, former head of security and chief information security officer of the Bank of England, and Alisdair Matheson, partner at law firm Brodies. Also on the list is Stephen Budd, product manager specialising in data solutions at cyber security specialist ZoneFox, a spin-out from Edinburgh Napier University. The firm s founder and chief executive Jamie Graves told Scotland on Sunday: As a Scottish company, I am delighted that we are able to partner with the conference to share knowledge across the cyber community in Scotland and educate on the best strategies and technologies to identify threats and reduce risk. Failure to protect sensitive information in the current business climate has serious consequences from reputational damage to huge financial loss, to the fallout for individuals that comes with the leak of their personal information. The firm will discuss whether Scotland is ready for general data protection regulation (GDPR), which comes into force in 2018 and will impose strict new rules on the way organisations collect, store and use personal data.

A recent study found that nearly half of UK firms were not ready for it coming into effect. Graves added that with the forthcoming GDPR, pressure has never been so high on organisations to safeguard their data and monitor its movement. As well as the increasing amount of state attacks and large organisations being breached, there have never been more attacks on businesses by cyber-criminals than we are seeing today, but, worryingly, knowledge and awareness about how to prevent such attacks is still very low. ZoneFox will present to delegates on the likes of how user behaviour analytics and machine learning can highlight threats to an organisation before they turn into incidents . Police Scotland, one of the conference s backers, said this month that there have been 34 ransomware attacks in Scotland in the past year, including 13 on NHS health boards on 13 May.

The conference s organiser is OSP Security Professionals, which last year took the Global Security & Cyber summit to Aberdeen, where it was predicted that oil and gas and the NHS were perfect targets for cyber hacks .

Call for Belfast City Hall security to be increased after heroin addict is seen ‘shooting up’ in iconic building

  • Call for Belfast City Hall security to be increased after heroin addict is seen ‘shooting up’ in iconic building

Fears are growing that Belfast City Hall is becoming a hub for illicit drugs activity after it was claimed a heroin addict was seen shooting up in a toilet. A council employee said they then saw the man fleeing half-naked in full view of tourists and visitors shortly before lunchtime on Tuesday.

Belfast City Council admitted that drug-taking paraphernalia was found in the City Hall toilets, while sources have told the Belfast Telegraph that drugs are a huge problem in the landmark building. The upsurge in illegal activity has coincided with a hike in visitor numbers, particularly with the exhibition centre in the west wing attracting more people through its doors.

There are plenty of hidey-holes for drug addicts to make use of, a City Hall insider told this newspaper.

There s also a daily and nightly gathering of drugs users at the Cenotaph. The eyewitness, who asked to remain anonymous, said they saw the man taking heroin before running out of the toilets on the ground floor of City Hall near the main entrance with his trousers hanging off him and no top on .

The shooting-up incident happened a day after a man in his 30s died from a suspected overdose in the toilets of a KFC restaurant in north Belfast. High Sheriff of Belfast Tom Haire revealed that he has had people removed from the Cenotaph for drinking alcohol, and called for increased security and more cameras at City Hall.

With increasing numbers of people around and in light of recent terror attacks in England, we need to bolster security both inside and outside the grounds, he said.

Our security staff do an excellent job, but we need more manpower, and although there already is CCTV in City Hall, we could do with bringing more cameras in. Mr Haire said he was familiar with problems of people gathering at the Cenotaph and said he was in favour of closing it off to the public.

My office overlooks the Cenotaph and I actually had to call security to ask them to remove half-a-dozen people drinking alcohol there, he said.

The DUP politician also said there should be a review of public toilet provision in the area because City Hall is often the first port of call for people who have no business being there . Councillor Jim Rodgers said he was becoming increasingly concerned about the city s drugs problem and he backed calls for security to be beefed up.

I ve had many complaints about people taking drugs not just within City Hall itself, but in the grounds as well and there has been a rise in the number of people using the loos to take drugs, said the Ulster Unionist.

Drugs is a major problem and we must do everything we can to address it.

I certainly don t want someone to be found dead from an overdose on council premises or anywhere else. UUP colleague Jeff Dudgeon said the incident was the downside of City Hall being widely open to the public.

There is a problem with heroin in the city and drugs misuse generally, he said.

We have significant security at City Hall, but you can t stand over everyone walking in and out.

Councillor Tommy Sandford said the unfortunate incident was something that every one of us should be worried about .

Hopefully it s a one-off . I m just sorry that it happened at all, he added. Belfast City Council said there was no attempt to pursue or apprehend anyone, and the identity of the person or persons involved is not known to us .

We can confirm that drug-taking paraphernalia recently was found in the City Hall toilets, it added.

However, it is inaccurate to say that a person was disturbed in the act of injecting drugs.

We are liaising closely with the PSNI and will continue to do so . There have been occasional discoveries of drugs paraphernalia in the grounds, including the Cenotaph area, but we would stress these finds are occasional.

In all such matters, we liaise closely with the PSNI . The grounds are monitored by CCTV and we also employ a contracted security company to patrol the grounds.
