Commentary and Opinions

On June 12th, analog TV ceased to exist. The traditional analog rabbit ears and roof-top antenna now join the Betamax VCR and cassette recordings. What was the reason for this change? Enhanced public security.
In my work with hazardous material technicians, I am continually impressed with their dedication, training, and breadth of knowledge. It is an honor to assist them in one very discrete area -- hazmat suits and the certification standards they must meet. It all starts with National Fire Protection Association standards. For more than 100 years, the NFPA has been the leading authority on fire protection and safety, developing thousands of standards for equipment that emergency service workers rely on to keep them out of harm's way – including chemical protective hazmat suits. Hazmat suits must pass the organization's rigorous tests of physical and chemical resistance to achieve NFPA certification.
Last week we explored the first and most significant proposed change to Part 28 Section 23 of the Code of Federal Regulations, which contains guidelines for intelligence system operating policies. The proposed change would lengthen the retention period for which criminal and counter-terrorism intelligence can be kept. Now, let's look at the other two major revisions proposed to 28CFR23 by the Department of Justice. The second major change is the manner in which agencies can disseminate information cross-jurisdictionally.
As President Obama completes his first months in office, there are pressing issues involving the collection, assessment, sharing and optimal processing of criminal and counter-terrorism intelligence. Debate continues on Part 28 Section 23 of the Code of Federal Regulations, as law enforcement agencies wait for the U.S. Department of Justice to act upon proposed revisions to the code.
Thanks to Conficker and GhostNet, the potential impact of botnets has finally spilled into the mainstream media, with predictably overwrought results. Botnets are, of course, a very serious challenge. They are so successful at perpetrating online crime that some researchers, reporters and analysts have openly discussed whether the Internet itself is to blame. These pundits argue that the most logical response is to rebuild the Internet from the ground up, using a model that replaces today's emphasis on privacy with another that places security at the forefront.
