Commentary and Opinions

With security awareness, threat assessment, and risk analysis extending into new areas like international traveler health screening, vigilance at the doors of elementary schools, and intensified subway passenger safety, it’s important for government security professionals everywhere to keep their knowledge and credentials continuously up-to-date.
The Javelin Strategy & Research’s 2014 Identity Fraud Study revealed that 13.1 million Americans became victims of identity theft last year. This startling statistic underscores the determination of malicious actors to access sensitive data. Despite the rise in exploits, vital aspects of security -- such as encryption -- has tended to slip through the cracks.
The possibility of governments collecting and analyzing personal data changed dramatically after the enactment of The Patriot Act in 2001. The public outcry following WikiLeaks and the NSA PRISM program has kept controversial data collection methods in the headlines over the past few years. The legality of this type of data collection is still in question.
When it comes to cybersecurity, boldface security organizations can seem just as susceptible to hacks as anyone else. For example, NATO suffered over 2,500 significant cyber attacks in 2012 alone. Security experts believe that the number of sophisticated offensives against NATO is likely to increase over the coming years.
We’re almost through hurricane season, and so far we’ve been lucky: none of the hurricanes or tropical storms have caused significant damage. Even so, we’re not out of the woods yet. Researchers at Colorado State University predicted the 2014 hurricane season would see three storms making landfall, and one will be a Category 3 or higher.
