MacArthur Foundation awards nuclear security grant to Hudson Institute

Weinstein

WASHINGTON, July 13, 2017 Hudson Institute has been awarded a $500,000 grant by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation to expand bipartisan political consensus on how to prevent terrorists from obtaining existing nuclear weapons, materials, or technologies. The project will be led by Dr. Richard Weitz, Director of Hudson Institute's Center for Political-Military Analysis.

"Concrete leadership on nuclear security benefits everyone," said Kenneth Weinstein, President and CEO of Hudson Institute. "Richard Weitz has worked at the forefront of cooperative threat reduction for many years, and we are proud to partner with MacArthur as they pursue new approaches to global nuclear security."

The grant will focus on preventing, deterring and responding to malign sub-state actors attempting to obtain an existing nuclear weapon or make an improvised nuclear explosive device through stolen, bought, or diverted highly enriched uranium and separated plutonium. Through media engagements, policy briefs, and public and private events, the project will focus on reducing U.S. partisan divisions surrounding the issue of nuclear security and prepare the next generation of nuclear security experts. The grant is part of a larger $4.4. million initiative led by the MacArthur Foundation and the Carnegie Corporation of New York to reduce nuclear risk and reinforce the goals established by the 2016 Nuclear Security Summit held in Washington, D.C.

Netwrix Auditor saves Danish local authority up to 40 hours per month on Compliance Monitoring

Netwrix Corporation, provider of a visibility platform for data security and risk mitigation, announced today that the Municipality of Roskilde in Denmark leverages the visibility provided by Netwrix Auditor to manage security risks and assure continuous compliance.

The Municipality of Roskilde is located in East Denmark and has a total population of 87,000 people. Its IT department is tasked with storing a range of sensitive data, including citizens’ personal identification numbers relating to the national Civil Registration System, which it must safeguard across a complex IT infrastructure that includes 270 servers and 640 applications. Further challenges are the need to prove compliance with Danish state regulations while spending less time on annual audits so that the IT department can focus more on their core responsibilities. Failure to ensure the safety of data and continuous compliance could expose the municipality to large penalties.

Roskilde’s IT department deployed Netwrix Auditor because it significantly simplifies tracking of user activity across all critical systems. With the help of the software, the municipality achieved the following results:

  • Visibility into critical actions. Netwrix Auditor delivers concise and actionable information about user activity across Active DirectoryExchange and Windows Servers, and also alerts the IT team about actions that could turn into a security breach.

  • Streamlined compliance. With the deep insight into user activity, the IT department can now validate its security controls, as required by the standards. Moreover, Netwrix Auditor keeps the entire audit trail in a long-term archive, so it can be easily retrieved during compliance checks to show auditors what happened in the past.

  • Time savings and easier troubleshooting. Netwrix Auditor saves the IT department at least 2 hours a day on manual monitoring of user activity across Roskilde’s complex IT infrastructure. On top of that, the actionable intelligence helps the team investigate and resolve user issues faster than before.

"Prior to deploying Netwrix Auditor, we had to manually monitor user activity in our environment. You could be looking at 5–6 domain controllers without even knowing what you are searching for. Netwrix Auditor consolidates everything, so it is very easy to understand what is going on in the infrastructure. We receive a report, skim it through very fast and get the answer. Sometimes things are nice to have and sometimes they are a necessity. Netwrix Auditor is a necessity, like a Swiss Army knife of monitoring solutions that is able to do so many things," said Finn Horn, IT specialist at the Municipality of Roskilde.

"Government institutions need to be able to react immediately to any modifications in the IT infrastructure in order to maintain data security and carry out their fundamental duty — safeguarding the interests of citizens. Uncontrolled processes in the infrastructure are inadmissible. Complete visibility into the IT environment is essential to efficient and convenient monitoring and ongoing review of user activities. This ensures the security of the large amounts of sensitive information and facilitates compliance with federal regulations," said Michael Fimin, CEO and co-founder of Netwrix.

Netwrix Auditor is a visibility platform for data security and risk mitigation that enables state and local government agencies to detect security threats, efficiently resolve user issues and streamline compliance processes.

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. Founded in 2006, Netwrix has earned more than 100 industry awards and been named to both the Inc. 5000 and Deloitte Technology Fast 500 lists of the fastest growing companies in the U.S. For more information, visit www.netwrix.com
