The Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC) is a Federal Advisory Committee with a U.S. Government Charter and promotes security cooperation between private sector interests and the Bureau of Diplomatic Security worldwide, under the U.S. Department of State. The Bureau of Diplomatic Security is the security and law enforcement arm of the United States Department of State and a world leader in international investigations, threat analysis, cyber security, counterterrorism, security technology, and protection of people, property, and information.

OSAC shares information with more than 5,000 constituent organizations, including G4S, on a variety of security concerns, including crime, terrorism, contingency planning and information security that is used to improve the security of customers. A global event with security professionals attending from around the world, GSX is an ideal venue for OSAC analysts to share the results of their research.

Using the information provided by organizations such as OSAC, G4S identifies, analyzes and reports organizational threats and provides situational awareness services. To help its clients adapt to the evolving risk landscape, G4S runs a 24/7/365 Risk Operations Center. The Risk Operations Center delivers access to comprehensive intelligence ensuring near real-time awareness of dynamic risks that matter. Services include intelligence analysis, customized intelligence reporting, intelligence alerting, embedded analysts, travel risk advisories, dashboard monitoring of threats, situational awareness alerts and notifications.

“As a constituent partner of OSAC, G4S and its clients benefit from trusted global security information,” said Robert Dodge, Executive Vice President, G4S Corporate Risk Services. “We encourage all GSX attendees to visit the G4S booth 1439 to hear the briefings.”

Martin Gren on OEM and cyber security | #TpromoCom #OEM #CyberSecurity #CCTV |  In this Detektor TV Magazine video clip, Axis co-founder Martin Gren says he believes OEM will come to an end because of cyber security issues. He also gives his view on Axis’ biggest challenge, video surveillance and smart cities, and more.

“If you are a big integrator and you OEM a camera and put your name on it, then you probably have put some extensive work on skinning, to make sure the camera appears to be yours, and then when there is a cyber security upgrade, you need to renegotiate with the original manufacturer and have it to do the skinning once you have discovered a bug”, he says.

Editor’s Note: There are those on the political Left who would have us all believe that the world is now a kinder, more gentler place than it was in the 1930s and 1940s, but the truth of the matter is, it’s actually a more dangerous place simply because of the convenience of technology. We must continue to be ever vigilant and watchful with regards to hacking as well as the deliberate placement of backdoors in software, as was recently discovered with regards to certain makes of cameras manufactured by certain Asian companies. –Al Colombo
