Commentary and Opinions

Unfortunately, none of us has any trouble imagining a security breach. Breaches are so frequent these days, so fast and so clever, that seemingly out of nowhere we could find critical infrastructure threatened, networks at risk, markets in danger.
The District of Columbia Council uncovered a serious homeland security flaw this week that should raise red flags for mayors and town managers around the country. In the nation's capitol, local transportation officials aren't conducting oversight over CSX and the goods it transports through the city.
