Data breaches targeting high profile individuals are becoming more and more regular: coupled with the increase in internet devices at home, the likelihood is also that such breaches are going to become more and more intimate. What lessons can be learnt from journalists and dissidents to help protect our personal information online?

Counter-fraud is the new arms race
 
 

The financial and reputational losses of individual crimes of fraud and malfeasance are increasing: as organisations are deploying more means of detection and prevention, they are not alone. The tools and techniques used by organised criminality and malicious insiders are becoming ever more sophisticated and complex. Is it time to go back to basics?

Child trafficking, exploitation and the globalisation of crime
 
 

Child trafficking and exploitation is rapidly becoming the first true globalised crime - utilising covert networks, advanced technologies, crowd-distributed content and long supply chains it is becoming increasingly difficult to combat effectively without globalising the response.

An anatomy of a world which is losing control
 
 

Recent events in Turkey have demonstrated three things: a split military which does not have enough control to take the country, a president that does not have enough control to prevent a coup, and a world which does not have enough control to understand and interpret the volumes of 'fact' and 'opinion' created by such a shock. So what next?

To build capacity, dismantle the challenge.
 
 

Governments invest huge amounts of money in security training and capacity building. But it’s our contention that a lot of that money is being spent inefficiently.

Why investing in the front line adds value to the top line
 
 

It’s easy to think of strategic security as a sunk cost – necessary expenditure it may be, but a recoupable value-add to the business, it would often appear not.

When does tech stop being a risk and start being an opportunity?
 
 

We read a lot about how security is threatened through the increased use of technology.

Looks can be deceptive
 
 

Though there are regions of the world that are more susceptible to instability, todays’ security landscape is a lot more dispersed and sporadic than the good old days when we could use a cartographer’s pencil to denote a warzone.

Trust is the bedrock of stability in anyone's language
 
 

Why community relations are such an important component in security strategy development, both at home and abroad.
