Cyber Crime Risk Management

Marsh at the forefront of Cyber Crime management….

Marsh Insurance Brokers’ London office held a two day conference in Brighton last week looking to bring to the fore the importance of Cyber crime and the management of those risks.

Marsh, one of the world’s largest brokers, are keen to bring to the attention of CEO’s, CIO’s and CFO’s in the coporate world just how important this area of risk is to a business. Many companies now face much stiffer penalties from regulatory bodies such as the FSA, The Law Society and the European Government for breaches in data loss.

Marsh involved a number of high profile speakers to push over this meassage, including Major General Jonathan Shaw, CBE who is recognised as the Government Tsar on Cyber Crime and is an ex member of COBRA Emergency Committee. His main emphasis was to look at strong leadership in implementing the changes necessary and aligning a company’s strategy direct from the top. ‘Get the CEO on board and the whole complany will follow and achieve’ was his mantra.

Companies face many forms of attack from the Cyber criminal including Social Engineering, Hard wire network and electrnic attack. Bonwyke’s own Ultima Signal Defence film is designed to prevent accidental or malicious attacks from RF and wireless enabled devices. “It’s a solution to data loss via WiFi, Bluetooth and IR Laser Microphone attacks in the general office environment, that is an area being too easily overlooked at present” reports Chris George, Bonwyke’s Managing Director. “With the Ultima system optical clarity and light levels are maintained but the signalling is barriered thus preventing the loss of vital personal and financial data. Martin Folan and his team at Marsh deserve great praise for bringing this area to the attention of business leaders” he continued.

Hanita External Film

New generation of external films…..

Hanita Coatings have long been recognised as a global expert in manufacturing external films and they have continued to push the bounderies with their new generation of film. Featured here is Titan 35 Xtra, a Dual Reflective film designed to maximise solar heat gain reduction whilst reducing the internal reflectance level, for better aesthetics.

There are various advantages in using external solar films over that of internally applied ones. For a start they work more efficiently by reflecting the sun’s heat without any re-absorbance into the glass pane. This can equate to 7-10% better performance over their internal counterparts, essential when trying to reduce Air Conditioning usage in the office environment. With the advancement in technology for glass systems the solar heat absorbance increases when films are applied internally. These problems are negated with an external application, reducing risks for Thermal Stress fracture.

Titan Xtra is manufactured across a range of VLT’s from 07, 20, 35 & 50 allowing for all types of light levels to be catered for. These films all carry a 5year waarnaty on vertical surfaces. Hanita’s Silver 20, 35 and 50 Xtra range carry a 7 year warranty for the same application, with a soon to be announced 15 year warranty for the Silver 20 Xtrm film on vertical surfaces.

Hanita are launching an industry unique 10 year warranty film for slanted surfaces, even to a horizontal level, with their SkyLite series and and announcement with more detail will be with you soon.

Tradition amongst installers has always been to apply film internally but with Hanita’s industry leading warranties which match internal ones now is the time to seriously review attitudes to external installations.
