Commentary and Opinions

Leadership development training is a crucial part of any organization. Public safety professionals have an extra burden -- if their leaders are not exceptional, lives can be lost.
By John Cosgrove and Adam Bulava   Mission: Enhance E.U. cyber security Earlier this summer, a group of European ministers, senior officials from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and other influential European leaders assembled in Brussels for a cyber exercise demonstration. The demonstration was requested by the European Security Round Table (ESRT) as part of that organization’s conference called Shared Threats -- Shared Solutions: Toward a European Cyber Policy.
High-definition video conferencing gives federal agencies tools for cost savings and increased productivity through secure teleworking and collaborative work environments. Federal executives, then, must understand the security issues of HD video conferencing -- on-premise or in the cloud. In video conferencing, agencies are concerned with secure data storage, controlling and handling classified information to protect it from falling into the wrong hands.
A year of historic breaches from RSA, Epsilon and Lockheed Martin to the Sony PlayStation Network, demonstrates how ineffective the best security technologies can be when people are involved. Many attackers today leverage the human factor, bypassing most security controls and using techniques such as social engineering to get the information they want, simply by luring users to open an email, click on a link or download an attachment. 
9/11 unleashed ripples of uncertainty and fear of further attacks in the following months. While this was expected, given the enormity of the event, did the federal and state response fuel the terror of terrorism? I would argue that it did, and that effective risk communication strategies are still lacking 10 years later. Furthermore, failure to implement a comprehensive risk communication strategy that covers natural and man-made disasters will continue to undermine preparedness, response and recovery efforts.
