Commentary and Opinions

At this moment, 1 out of every 100 adult Americans is behind bars. That’s 2.3 million convicted offenders, more than 60 percent of whom were sentenced for non-violent offenses.

In January, the European Commission proposed a comprehensive reform of the EU’s 1995 Data Protection Directive to strengthen consumer privacy laws and harmonize privacy regulations and enforcement across EU member states. While the EU proposal has many useful recommendations, it falls short in a number of areas. Specifically, it adds new regulations that will negatively impact the Internet economy, limits the potential for future innovation and imposes excessive burdens on organizations.

A widely held belief in the law enforcement community is that the more information sharing that takes place among different agencies, the better opportunities law enforcement officials have to connect the dots on possible criminal activity. Tips and leads, or Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) from citizens, can help piece together what otherwise might remain silos of pertinent clues or data -- never a connection to be made.

Every business day, companies fight to keep manufacturing in the U.S., and with good reason. Companies want to keep highly-skilled, well-paying jobs here. They want to keep profits and taxes in the U.S. But, foremost, when one looks at the total cost of manufacturing, domestic manufacturing truly is the most cost-effective option.

Companies witness this every day and it’s starting to become apparent as more customers are re-sourcing product from Mexico, Eastern Europe and the Far East back to the U.S. So, why is the U.S. becoming the next low-cost region for manufacturing?

Counterfeiting has become a problem too big and too serious to ignore. Its impact is now felt directly throughout the world economy -- even in the United States military supply chain where we now know that “military capable” technologies have been counterfeited. Counterfeiting was easier to overlook, despite the enormous economic and security implications, when it was seen as a luxury problem, an affliction affecting the manufacturers of designer handbags and outfits. Luxury or not, it is clear that it is a problem that we cannot ignore.

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.
