Commentary and Opinions

Grants Pass, OR, March 27 – California’s ongoing worst ever drought, and the recent record breaking winter blizzards in Boston and the U.S. Northeast, are both manifestations of the same global climate change patterns. Earth warming global atmosphere is creating changes in the atmosphere’s “energy balance,” according to L. DeWayne Cecil, PhD, historical climatologist and former NASA researcher. The result is not only a warmer and dryer global climate but also greater and more frequent climatic extremes, including the recent Boston blizzards.
Washington, March 18 – The National Retail Federation has presented Congress with practical, commonsense and achievable solutions to better protect consumers and help businesses prevent cyberattacks and data breaches.“We should not be satisfied with simply determining what to do after a data breach occurs,” NRF senior vice president for Government Relations David French said. “Instead, it is important to look at why such breaches occur and what the perpetrators get out of them so that we can find ways to reduce and prevent not only the breaches themselves but the follow-on harm.”

Dubhe Beinhorn describes AtHoc, Inc, winner of GSN’s 2012 award for “Best Mass Notification Solutions,” as a company that operates in one sector only: critical communications for crisis management. But it is in this business in a big way, with 50% of the U.S. federal government using the AtHoc System, including U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force, both on an enterprise level, the U.S. Patent Office and TSA.

Covia Labs received the award for “Best Interoperable First Responder Communications” in the 2012 Awards Program for its “Alert & Respond” software platform and application that provides voice/data interoperability across a variety of platforms ranging from smart phones to police and fire department radios, embedded devices and drones. The top two markets for the company, according to CEO David Kahn, are the military and public safety.

RedSeal Networks is both a Sponsor of the 2012 Awards Program and recipient of a Winner’s trophy in the IT Security Category of “Best Continuous Monitoring Solution”.

Vanguard Security Professionals has been a multiple Winner and Finalist in previous GSN Awards Programs and was named Winner in the 2012 category of “Best Intrusion Detection/Prevention Solution” and Finalist in the 2012 categories of “Best Identity Management Platform” and “Best Compliance/Vulnerability Assessment Solution.” Steven Ringelberg argues that new language is being used to describe the threat-scape, but many threats are the same as they have been for years.

TeleCommunication Systems (TCS), which entered its “Commercial Mobile Alerts System” in the 2012 Awards Program, was named a Finalist in the “Best Mass Notification Systems” category.
