GSN 2012 Awards announced: White House deputy of homeland security recognized for leadership at annual gala

GSN Awards 2012

Hundreds of the best of the homeland security community’s federal, state and municipal government officials, government contractors, systems integrators, IT vendors and physical security product and solutions providers all came together the night of November 29 in a ballroom of the Washington, D.C. convention center to receive accolades.

The GSN awards dinner, which has become a Washington tradition over the last four years, offered a chance for the excellence and civic-minded spirit of homeland security efforts nationwide to be recognized.

Not only were the best tools and technologies acknowledged , but the people and groups who use them, from local police departments in Florida and Washington state, to the White House, were honored at the event.

During the awards ceremonies, Richard Reed, Deputy Assistant to President Obama for Homeland Security, received the second annual Government Security News/Raytheon Award for Distinguished Leadership and Innovation in Public Safety and Security. Reed was chosen for tireless work in his key role in leading the development of national policy related to resilience, transborder security and community partnerships. He has been described as the president’s eyes and ears during disasters. In crises, such as the Gulf oil spill, H1N1 pandemic, and Haiti earthquake, Reed has sprung into action at the White House, coordinating information and gathering people to cope with these catastrophes.

Reed told Government Security News in an interview after the dinner that gatherings like GSN’s awards ceremony were invaluable in demonstrating that the hard work of creating a resilient, strong response to crises is performed by thousands of individuals, like those in attendance. Gatherings that bring the diverse emergency response and homeland security communities together can broaden perspectives and spur new ideas, he said.

Reed has been a determined, mostly behind-the-scenes, captain of federal emergency response efforts during the Bush and Obama administrations, helping prepare for, and respond to, some of the worst natural disasters the nation has known, from one of the deadliest tornado seasons in history in the Midwest, to historic wild fires in the west, and massive storms in the eastern U.S.

Reed said the key to capable response to such staggering events lies not only in federal hands, but in enabling state, local and even personal responses. Getting resources and training in place before disasters happen goes a long way in an effective response and recovery, he said. “The true first responders are friends, neighbors and co-workers” in the immediate aftermath of a disaster, said Reed. Local police, firefighters and other agencies arrive second, he said. Enabling people with information concerning what resources are available or where they can go for help or supplies empowers them, said Reed.

Government Security News managing partner Adrian Courtenay has made the GSN/Raytheon award an annual tradition. The prize is sponsored by the Raytheon Company, a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, homeland security and other government markets throughout the world, which is headquartered in Waltham, MA.

Notable 2012 government excellence award winners included the local police departments in Tampa and St. Petersburg, FL, for their ground-breaking work in preparing for the Republican National Convention in Tampa this past summer. The departments put together comprehensive plans to gently defuse potentially volatile political demonstrations at the event. Both departments were also praised for implementing an innovative interoperable communications network during the GOP convention.

The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory was recognized for its groundbreaking work on a small radiation detector. The Naval Air Systems Command won an award for its work on the Kestrel Wide Area Persistent Surveillance program, which developed an aerostat for long-term surveillance capabilities to protect ground soldiers in Afghanistan.

GSN 2011 Awards Program opens for entries on April 26

Government Security News has announced that its 2011 Homeland Security Awards Program  will officially open for business and start accepting entries in the program’s 45 awards categories on Tuesday, April 26.

The 2011 program contains a number of exciting new categories, reflecting the dynamically changing threat environment, in all three of the overall awards groupings: Best Vendors of IT Security Products and Solutions, Best Vendors of Physical Security Products and Solutions, and the 2011 Government Excellence Awards.

The cost for each entry in the 2011 program is $295 for vendors of IT security and physical security products and solutions. As in previous years, there is no cost for entries in the 10 categories of awards for federal, state and local government agencies.

Vendors of IT and physical security products and solutions may nominate themselves or be nominated by colleagues or government clients, while government agencies or departments may similarly nominate themselves or be nominated by other agencies, colleagues or vendors.

Adrian Courtenay, Managing Partner of GSN’s parent company, World Business Media, LLC, cited two intriguing new categories in the government sector that have been selected to acknowledge solid “boots on the ground” achievements of federal, state or local agencies in responding to emergencies, countering terrorism and stopping crime. These categories are “Most Notable Emergency Response Implementation – Federal, State or Local” and “Most Notable Law Enforcement Interdiction, Arrest or Counter Terrorism Program – Federal, State or Local.”

Acknowledging the increasing importance of cyber security and the threat of cyber war among nation-states, Courtenay also pointed out that the government awards in 2010 have been expanded to include a category titled, “Most Notable Cyber Security Program or Technology – Government or Military.”

Returning for its third year as a sponsor of the GSN Awards Program is founding sponsor ArcSight, now a business unit of Hewlett Packard Software and Solutions, whose enterprise threat and risk platform is an integrated product for collecting, analyzing and assessing security and risk information. ArcSight is also a repeat winner in the GSN awards program for its Security Incident Event Management (SIEM) products for collecting, analyzing and assessing security incident event information.

Also returning as event sponsors are General Dynamics C4, located in Phoenix, AZ, a major developer and integrator of secure communications and information systems and technology; and  Mutualink, another GSN award winner, which creates networks of interoperable communities that can instantly share radio, voice, text, video and data files, and telephone communications in a secure environment.

The fourth and final sponsor to date in the 2011 Awards Program is Behavioral Recognition Systems, Inc., of Houston, TX, also known as BRS Labs, whose software uses the fascinating, scientifically developed cognitive reasoning and artificial intelligence of behavioral analytics to leverage a stream of intelligence from millions of surveillance cameras worldwide, in order to provide alerts regarding abnormal or suspicious behavior.

Profiles of each of the 2011 sponsors will be posted on the GSN Web site in the coming weeks.

Additional companies or organizations interested in joining the ranks of 2011 sponsors of the GSN 2011 Homeland Security Awards Program should contact GSN Publisher and World Business Media President, Edward Tyler, at 212-344-0759, ext. 2001.

According to Courtenay, the 2011 Awards Program will culminate with the annual awards dinner in early November at a venue to be announced shortly. “It’s going to be hard to top last year’s elegant dinner and spectacular after-dinner keynote presentation by four-star General Barry McCaffrey (USA-Ret.). But we’re going to try!”

In 2010, the GSN awards were presented to a sold-out ballroom at the JW Marriott Hotel in Washington, DC, that included many distinguished government and military officials, academics, law enforcement and public safety professionals from across the country, along with the systems integrators, defense contractors and vendors of products and solutions used in homeland security.

Preston Abbey Launches Solution for Secure Paperless Transfer of Government Classified Files

Preston Abbey PA-CFT eliminates the need for government personnel to manually feed secure fax machines and is compatible with Secure Communications Interoperability Protocol

 

 

RESTON, VA, 06 FEBRUARY 2018 – Preston Abbey, a developer of solutions for the secure transmission of confidential and sensitive documents, today introduced the     PA-CFT (Classified File Transfer), enabling government and defense agencies to transfer any classified files, including documents, photos, videos and maps, with the security of Secure Telephone Equipment (STE). When using Preston Abbey PA-CFT, transmitted files never leave a secure environment, thus providing a paperless solution that allows sensitive files to be sent electronically, dramatically reducing the risk of classified documents being compromised during the manual fax process.

 

“There is a pressing need for this type of solution due to the increasing number of attacks on Internet-based systems, such as email and databases, which represents a major threat to those in government who need to protect and secure classified information,” said David Shaw, President and co-founder of Preston Abbey.

 

Preston Abbey solutions accomplish the secure transmission of classified documents without the use of email, the Internet or any mechanism susceptible to eavesdropping or other interference by unauthorized parties, including foreign governments, terrorist groups, hackers and anyone who would leak sensitive material on public web sites.

 

Preston Abbey offers an effective migration path from obsolete or outdated secure fax equipment to a completely paperless operation, with little or no impact on the day-to-day operations of a government agency or its communications network. Preston Abbey solutions support the reliable connection of modern printer/scanner devices to replace legacy equipment and secure mission critical document exchange over existing communications channels, retaining the full advantages of STEs for confidentiality.

 

The full Preston Abbey product range meets the needs of civilian government and military agencies that rely on STEs and Secure Communications Interoperability Protocol (SCIP) to send and receive classified files and includes:

 

  • PA-CFT (Classified File Transfer)
    • The paperless solution
  • PA-LFR (Legacy Fax Replacement)
    • A cost-effective alternative to aging and often failing fax machines
  • PA-SAA (Stand Alone Application)
    • A software solution allowing connection of a STE to Windows or Mac

 

The Preston Abbey solutions allow the standard RS232 interface for STEs to seamlessly access the full features of the advanced software.

 

“It is abundantly clear that the emerging requirement for sensitive file transmission is to retain the faxing mechanism’s extraordinary security of a point-to-point, direct communication path, while avoiding the tedious need to handle physical documents,” said James Abbey, CEO and co-founder of Preston Abbey. “With PA-CFT, government users will become more efficient by being able to transfer documents to or from their computer directly without having to go through the time and trouble of manually operating a fax machine.”

The Preston Abbey PA-CFT will automatically determine the nature of the recipient device and make the appropriate technical arrangements. Designed with reliability in mind, the proprietary firmware is hardened against transmission errors or other communications problems and will optionally retry data that fails internal integrity checking. Preston Abbey solutions provide long-term dependability for secure document handling requirements, as well as an upgrade path for new features.

 

Preston Abbey solutions require minimum engineering changes or network alterations. They enable users of legacy equipment to migrate easily and effectively to modern, inexpensive paperless solutions. Speed is mandatory and is provided by mature platforms that Preston Abbey leverages to provide robust solutions for critical document handling. The Preston Abbey solutions are fully automated and feature a simple web interface, ensuring quick and easy configuration and set-up. Once installed, they will operate continuously without user intervention.

About Preston Abbey

Preston Abbey develops reliable, mission critical communications solutions that secure the connectivity and delivery of confidential and sensitive documents for government and DOD agencies. Headquartered in the heart of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area's technology corridor, Preston Abbey has unparalleled experience, expertise and knowledge of secure fax technology for government deployments.

Hopkins County Upgrades to Verity Ahead of March Election

SULPHUR SPRINGS, Texas -- Hopkins County is on the fast track to replace an aging voting system with the most up-to-date technology available in the U.S. in time for their March 6 election. Commissioners voted Jan. 12 to upgrade to the Verity® Voting system from Hart InterCivic, a trusted election partner with the County for more than a decade. Acceptance testing and delivery begin this week, and County Clerk Debbie Shirley is confident that with Hart's help, the timeline will work.

The Verity Touch electronic voting system from Hart InterCivic makes voting straightforward with an easy to read touchscreen. The compact, lightweight devices save cost and effort for storage, transport and setup.
"Not only is Verity an awesome system, but the people at Hart are great. When you trust the company you deal with, you know they will be there for you. Hart is the best at what they do," Shirley said.
"Choosing Verity is a win/win decision for Hopkins County. Voters are going to love the convenience of the touchscreen. In my office, we love a time-saving, efficient and easy to learn setup," she said. In addition to the voter-friendly, intuitive interface, the system's lightweight, removable tablet and accessibility features accommodate all voters, including those with disabilities.

Shirley, who plans to retire at the end of 2018, sees the move to Verity as part of her legacy after 44 years working for the County. "I love my job, and I want to leave the best system possible in place for the public. By making this transition now, I can help the Election Office do their best throughout the years with this new, convenient system."

"The County is investing in good equipment and good voting," she added. "At some time, this 13-year-old equipment was going to start costing time and money with no return. Plus, Verity is designed to handle Vote Centers." Convenient Vote Centers are increasingly popular in Texas, replacing individual precinct polling places. Older voting systems were designed before Vote Centers were allowed in 2006, while all-new Verity is designed and manufactured in Texas with Vote Center functionality to make convenience voting easier, more efficient and more secure.

Verity is certified at the federal and state levels; it is designed from the ground up to be flexible, easy to use and secure with all new hardware and software. Shirley is looking forward to easier programming with Verity, along with easier transport of the lightweight, compact units to the County's 12 Vote Centers.
Early voting begins Feb. 20, and Shirley is confident that her workers will be trained and ready thanks to hands-on help. "Hart always comes through. I've been with them for years, and they will make it happen," she said.
"Hopkins County is moving quickly to modernize local elections. We appreciate their confidence in Hart and in Verity. Our team members are laying the groundwork for a successful election in March and many more in the years ahead," said Phillip Braithwaite, President and CEO of Hart InterCivic, an Austin-based company with more than 100 years of experience providing election solutions.

Hopkins County, with about 22,000 registered voters, joins a growing number of Texas jurisdictions moving to Verity. Since the Texas Secretary of State certified the latest release of the system in late 2016, Hart has shipped more than 7,000 Verity devices across the State. Federally certified in 2015, the secure and efficient system is also in use in numerous counties throughout the U.S.

Braithwaite expects more Texas and national announcements throughout 2018.

Netwrix Survey: 39% of Organizations Blame their Own IT Teams for Security Incidents in the Cloud

IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 23, 2018 -- Netwrix Corporation, provider of a visibility platform for user behavior analysis and risk mitigation in hybrid environments, released the 2018 Netwrix Cloud Security Report. The report identifies concerns that organizations have about cloud security, the threats they dealt with over the last year, and their plans for further cloud usage and security enhancements.

The 2018 Netwrix Cloud Security Report presents the results of our third annual survey, conducted in November 2017. The respondents represent 853 organizations of various sizes, industries and geographical locations. All organizations are public or hybrid cloud users.

The key findings include:

  • The most common cloud security concerns remain the same: the risk of unauthorized access (69%), the risk of malware infiltrations (50%) and the inability to monitor the activity of their own employees in the cloud (39%).
  • 45% of organizations perceive their own employees to be the biggest security risk. Even though the majority of attacks they experienced over the year were external, organizations blame their own IT staff (39%) and business users (33%) as much as or more than their cloud providers (33%).
  • Organizations are not ready to address the insider threat because they have only partial visibility into activity in their IT infrastructures, a situation that has not changed much since 2016. The share of organizations that have complete visibility into the activity of IT staff (28%), business users (17%), third parties with legitimate access (12%) and providers (9%) is low and needs to be improved.
  • Only 66% of surveyed IT teams have top management's support for security initiatives for the cloud.
  • 42% of the organizations are ready to embrace the cloud more fully, while 47% are not ready for one or more reasons. Even though 86% of organizations said in 2016 that they were not ready for a big cloud move, one year later, 31% of respondents say they are planning a complete migration to the cloud in the next five years.
  • The majority of organizations plan to start storing sensitive data in the cloud or move more data there. Mainly it is going to be customer (50%), employee (45%) and financial (37%) information.
  • Employee training (55%), enforcement of stricter security policies (53%) and deployment of vendor security solutions (39%) top the list of the urgent measures aimed at strengthening security.

"Although most actual security attacks were external, cloud customers mostly blame their own users for incidents in the cloud and see them as the biggest threat to security. Why? Even if insiders are not malicious, they still can unwittingly help attackers get into the environment, whether due to a lack of knowledge about risks, negligence or mistakes. To address the human factor in all its forms, organizations need a complex approach that includes at least three components: employee training, top management support for security initiatives, and pervasive visibility into user activity to detect attacks and minimize the damage," said Michael Fimin, CEO and co-founder of Netwrix.

About Netwrix Corporation
Netwrix Corporation was the first vendor to introduce a visibility and governance platform for hybrid cloud security. More than 160,000 IT departments worldwide rely on Netwrix to detect insider threats on premises and in the cloud, pass compliance audits with less effort and expense, and increase productivity of IT security and operations teams.

What can 5G learn from the Military Communications Market? A range of crossover technologies will become common across both commercial and military communications networks and devices

BOSTON, Jan. 22, 2018 -- Software defined architecture, solid-state technology, radio-satellite communications-wireless network integration as well as communicating voice and data/video simultaneously and securely in an increasingly complex spectrum environment will underpin growth for military communications systems and the associated component and semiconductor demand. The Strategy Analytics Advanced Defense Systems (ADS) service report, "Military Communications Market Outlook 2016 - 2026," forecasts spending on global military communications systems and services will grow to over $36.7 billion in 2026, a compound annual growth rate of 3.5%.

 

(PRNewsfoto/Strategy Analytics)...

 

Military communications operate under an umbrella of heterogeneous networks that enable the provision of interoperable voice, video and data services across a global environment, segmented according to security policies, transmission requirements and the individual needs of the end user. In terms of the networked battlespace, this can be summarized as:

  • Upper level networking, consisting of infrastructure and networking components;
  • Mid-level networking providing high capacity backhaul;
  • Support to the tactical edge for end-users and sensors

"In a similar fashion, 5G serves as an aggregator technology that will encompass a range of network types and technologies to serve both traditional voice, video and data requirements to the end-user, as well as opening up capabilities to enable connectivity across devices including vehicles, machines, sensors and devices," notes Eric Higham, North American Director for ADS.

Phased arrays, beam forming, millimeter-wave frequencies, satellite communications, Gallium Nitride, duplex communications and shared spectrum access are amongst the crossover technologies that will become common across both commercial and military communications.

"Communicating voice, data and video simultaneously and securely over wider and higher bandwidths in an increasingly complex spectrum environment will underpin trends for military communications system design and associated component demand," observed Asif Anwar, ADS Director at Strategy Analytics. "This will be underpinned by software defined architectures, solid-state technologies including gallium nitride and radio-satellite communications-wireless network integration."

Military Communications Market Outlook 2016 - 2026 presents the outlook for global military communications in terms of overall expenditure, as well as detailing expected shipments and associated demand for components and semiconductor technologies.

Spending on communications systems is segmented on a regional basis, and covers the land, air, sea and space domains. System shipments are derived through a robust analysis of the market based on platform and communications function and mission. Further segmentation of the market in terms of frequency and power is also presented for military radios and satellite communications.

The underlying numerical data is available in the Global Communications Market Forecast: 2016 - 2026 (https://www.strategyanalytics.com/access-services/components/defense/market-data/report-detail/global-military-communications-market-forecast-2016---2026) forecast data model that looks at the total military communications sector comprising radio and satellite terminals systems, as well as networks, datalinks and other communications systems. The report also details the resultant demand for semiconductor components, based on an assessment of market and technology trends. Supporting data models that focus on the military radio and satellite terminal sectors to complete this suite of information are:
