Deloitte joins as a member of the SRI
Perpetuity are pleased to announce that Deloitte, an international professional services firm, has become our newest member of the Security Research Initiative. They join a whole host of corporate and security companies, and we look forward to working with them in the future.
The Security Research Initiative (SRI) is a rolling three-year programme of research, with each year producing a separate study. With the support of our industry sponsors, Perpetuity undertakes research into the security sector with the aim of evaluating topics that are important to the security world. This research develops insights into the industry and provides practical recommendations. The SRI is supported by the British Security Industry Association, The Security Institute, and ASIS International (UK Chapter).
Our current project looks at the response to cyber crime. As cyber crime is quickly growing and evolving, the threat posed to businesses is irrefutable. Yet the role of private security (both corporate security and security suppliers) in tackling cyber crime remains unclear. In this project we are seeking to identify the difficulties, and crucially the opportunities that the cyber crime threat presents to private security, and to better understand the relationship with the police and also IT security in terms of the role they play addressing these offences.
We are currently running an online survey on the project. If you are a physical and/or cyber/information security professional and would like to have your say visit: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SRI-cyber-crime. The survey is anonymous, takes approx 10 minutes to complete and the findings will be made available to participants. The deadline for responses is the 2nd February 2016.
