Commentary and Opinions

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.
By John HarrisWith the 1998 implementation of the Government Paperwork Elimination Act, the United States government made clear its intentions to become more efficient and save taxpayer dollars by reducing its dependence on paper documents.
By Steve SpatigWith reports of widespread data breaches in the global spotlight, data center managers are under increasing pressure by regulatory bodies to ensure that access to restricted information is protected. Cyber security remains a number one priority, but in many cases, data breaches occur because an employee is given temporary physical access to that data in some way. Within the data center environment, preventing unauthorized physical access to sensitive government data is crucial.
By Kirk Spring As we’ve seen by recently reported hacks of healthcare networks, security breaches are becoming commonplace. Attacks on secure networks can come from internal or external sources. “Breach prevention” is no longer a workable strategy.
