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.

Rob Wolf tells GSN that NC4 products focus on situational awareness, and the company is at the IACP show to demonstrate its new NC4 SAFECOP product for state and local law enforcement. NC4 SAFECOP was developed in collaboration with the Tampa, FL police department and is a new crime fighting solution that changes the way officers police the streets by bringing them blogging capabilities which, combined with other police feeds and CAD data, display a graphic representation of crime almost immediately following an incident.

Dr. Banerjee points out that the typical command and control center of an airport, seaport, mass transit hub, utility or city center is a place with input from a number of different silos. The silos must be joined together, he says, so that management can first achieve situational awareness, then move on to situation management and situation reconstruction. That is what Physical Security Information (PSIM) is all about, he says, and it is what Nice’s Situator software offers to security personnel. It’s the ability to pull the silos together and know what to do next.
