Charities Act unlikely to make it onto statute books in 2005, says NCVO

first_img Howard Lake | 2 March 2005 | News The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) is not optimistic that the Charities Bill will make it onto the statute books this year.NCVO Chief Executive Stuart Etherington said: “It is disappointing and frustrating that the Charities Bill will almost certainly not make it onto the statute books this year, but this should be seen as delay not defeat. It looks like the voluntary sector will have to wait a bit longer for the much needed reform of its 400 year old law.“Having worked hard on this process for over five years, and more recently with the support of the Coalition for a Charities Act, NCVO will be calling for the re-introduction of the Bill by the next government. We hope that the high levels of cross party support we have already seen for this legislation and the thorough scrutiny it has already been subjected to will allow its rapid progress through the next Parliament.He welcomed the constructive support from Government, Conservative and Liberal Democrat front benches on the Committee Stage of the Bill. However, he felt that “the length of time spent by the House of Lords scrutinising a Bill that has already been subject to extensive consultation and pre-legislative scrutiny, in combination with the impending General Election, has been the Charities Bill’s undoing”.He added that “With fifteen months passing between the publication of the Strategy Unit’s report on charity law reform in 2002 and the announcement of the draft bill in the Queen’s Speech in November 2003, NCVO knew then that time would be tight. This was not helped by delays in the publication of both the draft bill and the Bill itself.”NCVO was putting its faith in its Election Manifesto, launched in February, which calls on parliamentary candidates and the next government to support the introduction of the Charities Bill in the first Queen’s Speech following the election if it fails to make it onto the statute books this year.www.ncvo-vol.org.uk Tagged with: Law / policy NCVO Charities Act unlikely to make it onto statute books in 2005, says NCVO AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  34 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

In safe hands?

first_img Previous Article Next Article Related posts: In safe hands?On 5 Feb 2002 in Military, Personnel Today The security of data systems should be a top priority fororganisations, in particular HR, writes Keith Rodgers. After all, there is alot at stake – not least, corporate integrityWhen a large financial company decided to roll out an employee portal forthe first time, it expected a certain amount of resistance from its workforce.Not everyone, after all, immediately takes a shine to the concept ofself-service HR. What it didn’t anticipate, however, was a blanket refusal from an entiresection of its IT department to participate in the initiative. Fearing theportal would expose personal data to both internal and external hackers, thecompany’s security experts refused to enter information into the portal untilthey had put the system through an exhaustive testing programme. Although their concerns were dealt with well before they were publicisedaround the company, the events illustrate the far-reaching implications of HRsystem security. The direct impact of breaches can be huge – unauthorisedaccess by external hackers or disgruntled employees can have major legal,public relations and regulatory repercussions, as well as undermining theintegrity of data and damaging electronic systems. But the indirect implications can also be costly. Loss of confidence in ITsecurity – even when it hasn’t been compromised – can jeopardise majorstrategic initiatives like self-service. Fuelled by fears of cyber-terrorismand ‘denial of service’ attacks that took out high-profile websites, thesekinds of security issues are rapidly climbing the corporate agenda. The growingadoption of internet-based HR technology, offering wider accessibility tocorporate information, has caused companies to question existing procedures andre-examine the integrity of their IT infrastructure. And software vendors aretaking note. At the start of the year, hard on the heels of negative publicity about thestability of its software and the privacy implications of one of its Netinitiatives, Microsoft chairman Bill Gates told employees security was a toppriority for the firm. But the problem facing most users is that IT budgets – already under severestrain – rarely accommodate major expenditure on security measures. Securing HRdata is a business priority, but companies are having to take a pragmatic viewof where and how to invest. As Mark Frear, head of enterprise portals at SAPUK, says: “Security must be commensurate with the risk.” Building a security strategy encompasses a range of technology, businessprocess and planning elements. Vendors and consultants alike stress that thestarting point for any initiative should be to draft a corporate policy – anobvious move in theory, but one that few organisations carry out in practice.As Simon Owen, partner in Andersen’s technology risk department, points out,organisations need to build a practical set of procedures and guidelinesspelling out their security policy. Templates are available on the Web, but it is important to ensure thedocuments are usable – not so unwieldy that end-users are put off from openingthem. High on the list of priorities is to establish levels of responsibilityand lines of communication. Andersen argues that overall responsibility forsecurity should be held at senior level, possibly a board member or the head ofIT, with duties delegated. Sensitivity test From HR’s perspective, the main concern is to establish which data is themost sensitive. “The danger with security is that you take the paranoidapproach – everything must be screwed down,” says Owen. “Someone inHR needs to do that – to work out what they care about – before they write outa large cheque for expensive security.” Personal payroll data, for example, is clearly highly sensitive, whileinformation on corporate salary scales is important, but less sensitive givenemployees can work out the guidelines by comparing notes. As well as preventative measures to guard critical data, a company’s actionplan should spell out the procedures when security is breached. That processcan be more complex than organisations first realise and requires input fromdepartments across the company, including media relations (in case the storyleaks), the legal department (to understand the company’s liability and toestablish what action to take if the intruder is identified) finance, IT,marketing and, of course, HR. Organisations that have suffered security breaches testify to the fact thatdefining responsibilities prior to the event makes a huge difference. Itensures that they have the resources at hand to weigh up the damage, prevent arecurrence and handle the technical and organisational fallout. Mike Richards, CEO of Snowdrop Systems, argues that security policyultimately ends up as a cost/benefit exercise – weighing up the costs ofsecurity, breaches, and data loss. These costs come in numerous forms,including the direct damage to the business or its reputation (particularly insecurity-conscious industries such as banking) and the potential impact onstaff morale. “To achieve a practical outcome it’s necessary to adopt a basicprinciple: that perfect security is not achievable in any environment,”Richards says. “What is important is to understand the risks and remediesand to take action appropriate to the situation. Even the Pentagon is hackedregularly, but the risks are controlled.” Most significantly, organisations need to recognise there is a balancing actbetween availability of information – either internally over an intranet or forexternal access – and security requirements. Defensive devices While operating system and network security are typically the domain of theIT department, HR should be heavily involved in defining application anddatabase security procedures. The building blocks for a comprehensive strategyfall into four core categories – authentication, encryption, firewall defencesand auditing. Authentication For most organisations, the authentication layer isrelatively straightforward, based around a user ID and recognised passwordsystem. Given that most IDs are easy to work out and passwords oftenunimaginative, however, some companies require higher levels of accesssecurity. Challenge Response Mechanisms, for example, generates an eight-digitnumber when users log in. The user enters the number into a pre-programmed‘calculator’, protected by a PIN, which generates a corresponding code that iskeyed back into the system. Other security devices tie users to certainconsoles, only allowing access to named individuals from named machines – auseful device if specialist access is required for an office-bound employee inareas such as HR or finance. Once identity is established, most HR software systems provide thefunctionality to tie the user to specific access privileges, depending on theirrole, function, seniority or geography. Historically, as SAP’s Frear pointsout, HR departments relied on e-mailing IT to request changes to privileges asindividuals shifted jobs or left the company. That process, which was prone tohuman error and time delays, has now been automated. The SAP system links security levels to an organisational chart, whichautomatically modifies privileges when HR staff enter personnel and contractorchanges. Lawson Software has a similar rules- and role-based system whichallows companies to build employee groups with specific access privileges. Ifan employee’s status shifts – for example, they go part-time and lose theirentitlement to certain benefits – they no longer match the group criteria andare denied access to the appropriate data. Encryption The second layer of defence, encryption ensures theconfidentiality of data as it passes through the system – an issue that growsin importance as organisations send more HTML-based data to employee Webbrowsers. Application vendors have adopted several encryption technologies,including Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), a ‘scrambling’ device used in an enhancedform for credit-card transactions on many consumer websites. The basic form of SSL – 40-bit encryption – can be cracked by moreexperienced hackers, but it still serves a useful purpose for many companies:organisations need to ask how far hackers will bother to go to find out basicHR information. Most vendors also offer links to specialist encryption enginesfor higher-security environments. Firewall Built to protect core servers and one of the prime targetsof professional hackers, firewalls have typically been viewed as the domain ofIT, but in reality their construction also requires input from HR. For manyorganisations, this is the Achilles heel. Andersen, which carries out ‘ethicalhacking’ to assess the security of clients’ systems, is successful in 90 percent of its attempts to penetrate systems – primarily because the firewall haseither not been configured properly to meet the organisation’s needs, or theconfiguration was out of date. Built on business rules that determine whattraffic is allowed through, the firewall needs to be constantly adjusted as newinformation comes into the public domain about security lapses in specificproducts – not least because that information is seized upon by hackers. “The IT department needs to know how to configure the firewall, and thebusiness needs to work out what it will allow through,” says Owen.”So HR and IT need a coordinated approach. And you have got to keepabreast [of new security weaknesses] and react accordingly.” Owen suggestsone inexpensive way organisations can test their security is to simply try tohack into the firewall themselves. Audit The final major piece of the security puzzle, the audit, is amonitoring process that tracks access to data and is critical to establishingongoing security and the extent of any breach of the system. Owen says one of the most expensive elements in the security process is theresource required to find out what went on when unauthorised access took place.Monitoring tools can also help organisations restore data after the event. SAP,for example, allows users to configure their auditing software to triggerspecific events seen as critical by the organisation. In military applications,that process extends as far as monitoring whether information has been viewed,not merely whether it has been altered. But for most commercial organisationsit is changes to records that will trigger most alarms. While these technical measures provide the security framework at systemlevel, the elements are only relevant if they are part of a broaderorganisational security policy. Much of that is common sense – ensuring, forexample, that individuals who make changes to payroll systems cannot trigger apay run without a managerial check-off. Much, too, is about disasterpreparedness. Del Dehn, technology product marketing manager at Lawson in theUS, argues that data storage and data management strategies are key toresolving a catastrophic security failure, allowing organisations to revert tosaved data if systems are violated. Again, regular testing is critical – muchof an organisation’s ability to recover from intrusion rests on the actions ittakes in advance to mitigate against damage. Perceived threats Just how great the threat is to HR systems is a matter of some debate. Manyvendors concede that the dangers are sometimes blown out of proportion, notjust by the software community but by users themselves. As Richards at Snowdropcomments: “Organisations are inclined to overstate how interesting theirdata is – the average HR database is not of great interest to techiehackers.” For that reason, many observers believe the biggest threatsremain ‘denial of service’ attacks and viruses. Both can be headed off to adegree by Web tools, and while security breaches in confidential areas such aspayroll may be a worry, the biggest issue most organisations face is thefailure of end-users to roll out virus-screening applications. While the emergence of employee self-service has raised fears aboutsecurity, in many respects they too are overstated. Richards suggests aWeb-based employee portal may well be more secure than a PC-based system, ifonly because the obvious threats to data integrity will have forcedorganisations to address security issues they might otherwise have ignored.Likewise, Diana Van Blaricom, international HR product manager at Lawson,argues that self-service systems are more secure than telephone-based interactivevoice response (IVR) mechanisms, where passers-by can watch numbers beingentered and employees can hear conversations, or an office’s internal mailsystem. That said, Andersen says the percentage of external security breaches,compared to internal, has risen from 20 per cent five years ago to 40 per centtoday. Meanwhile, Datasec, a UK-based computer forensic investigation firm,argues that while the greatest perceived threat to companies is cybercrime,employees remain the highest risk. Whatever the real threat today, the dangers are set to increase. As CateQuirk, analyst at AMR research, points out, security will become ever morepressing as organisations seek to collaborate with external partners, gainingaccess to their system, partners, suppliers and customers. In practical terms, companies need to assess for themselves where thebiggest threats are and address them as top priority. “Organisations needto understand that security should be thought of first, not last,” saysQuirk. center_img Features list 2021 – submitting content to Personnel TodayOn this page you will find details of how to submit content to Personnel Today.
