Commentary and Opinions

By H. Wayne Duff, Jr.Critical infrastructure defines all the assets, systems and networks in place to store and safeguard information vital to national security in the United States. So vital, in fact, that its incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on everything from economic security to public health and safety. Critical infrastructure is the country’s foundation, and compromising it would result in significant implications to the economy, security and overall health of our nation.
By Nir PolakEspionage isn’t what it used to be. While Hollywood still loves to produce thrillers about secret agents in disguise, the news tells a different story about how intelligence leaks out of the U.S. government. Often, its starts with an incoming email that looks innocuous. That’s exactly what happened to the White House recently, when a group of Russian hackers launched a sustained attack armed only with a phishing email and a piece of malware.
Washington, D.C., June 17 – No Labels leaders are participating in a series of signature events on and around Capitol Hill, on Wednesday, to make the case for its National Strategic Agenda as a transformational idea that can help unite the country, shape the 2016 electoral debate and provide a framework for problem solving in the first 100 days of the next administration.

Dubhe Beinhorn describes AtHoc, Inc, winner of GSN’s 2012 award for “Best Mass Notification Solutions,” as a company that operates in one sector only: critical communications for crisis management. But it is in this business in a big way, with 50% of the U.S. federal government using the AtHoc System, including U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force, both on an enterprise level, the U.S. Patent Office and TSA.

Covia Labs received the award for “Best Interoperable First Responder Communications” in the 2012 Awards Program for its “Alert & Respond” software platform and application that provides voice/data interoperability across a variety of platforms ranging from smart phones to police and fire department radios, embedded devices and drones. The top two markets for the company, according to CEO David Kahn, are the military and public safety.

RedSeal Networks is both a Sponsor of the 2012 Awards Program and recipient of a Winner’s trophy in the IT Security Category of “Best Continuous Monitoring Solution”.

Vanguard Security Professionals has been a multiple Winner and Finalist in previous GSN Awards Programs and was named Winner in the 2012 category of “Best Intrusion Detection/Prevention Solution” and Finalist in the 2012 categories of “Best Identity Management Platform” and “Best Compliance/Vulnerability Assessment Solution.” Steven Ringelberg argues that new language is being used to describe the threat-scape, but many threats are the same as they have been for years.

TeleCommunication Systems (TCS), which entered its “Commercial Mobile Alerts System” in the 2012 Awards Program, was named a Finalist in the “Best Mass Notification Systems” category.
