    IoT Security: Reality or Thriller Plot Threats?

    in Technology

    When researchers discover vulnerabilities in Internet of Things (IoT) devices, the media hypes the consequences as if the movie "Maximum Overdrive" has jumped off the big screen and into reality. Will your connected car refuse to respond to your stabs at the brake pedal? Will soda machines start shooting cans at unsuspecting passers by? When will our robot vacuums rebel, controlled by Skynet?

    Join Caleb Barlow and Chris Poulin, Research Strategist for IBM's X-Force Security Threat Intelligence Team and IoT and connected car security expert, to separate the real security threats from FUD.

    Do The Thoughts Of Security Breaches Keep You Up At Night?

    in Technology


    Just in the last year alone, the world witnessed many unprecented, security breaches.  Many of these Cyber based attacks targeted well known retail chains, such as Target and Home Depot.  Then of course, was the drama brought by the Sony Corporation, with the security hacks it faced, and the threats posed to it by the launch of its movie, 'The Interview'.  No business entity is ever immune from being a target of a Cyber based attack, but there are preventative techniques one can take.

    One such proactive technique is that of the auditing of one's IT infrastructure, to pinpoint where the true security vulnerabilities and weaknesses lie.  In our podcast today, we intervview Mr. Michael Fimin, CEO of Netwrix Corporation, and learn more about the IT Security audit process.

    The Next Wave Of Security Technology - Unified Threat Management

    in Technology

    In today's world, business owners want complete protection and security offered to their physical premises, both inside and outside.  In the past, business owners would be required to purchase and deploy security technologies in "piecmeal".  Meaning, only type of security technology served only specific purpose in safeguarding the business.  Obviously, this "piecmeal" approach has proven to be not only very expensive for the small business owner to procure and maintain, but the technology also gets outdated very quickly.  Thus, the business owner is yet once again faced in deploying newer security technology using the "piecemeal" approach.  However, there is a new security solution out there-which is known as "Unified Threat Management" and can provide the business owner a snapshot of the entire security infrastructure of his or her business at a fraction of the cost of the legacy security technologies.  In this radio show, we interview Mr. Soren Frederiksen, VP of Development of iView Systems. 

    This company has come out with the "holistic" view to security for any sized business, which includes the following components:

    *Incident Reporting and Risk Management;

    *Visitor Management;

    *Identification Management;

    *Compliance and Reporting;

    *Responsible Gaming.

    The Power of Intention and Multivalent Information

    in Spirituality

    Correct information is the oil that keeps gears smoothly in motion. It is the defining difference in the animal kingdom and life itself. What is the source of informaiton - biology, chemistry, philosophy, dogma, concept, sense input, lower spirit forces, religions, beliefs, observation, experience, imagination, dreamtime, astral influxes, poetic inspirations, platitudes, Higher SELF, etc.?

    Nothing exists without information at its core defining how it functions and responds to life. Energy is information. In modern times we are quite sloppy and cavalier with information. In days of yore, we were quite ignorant of information except in a most mundane survival sense, or superstitious sense. 

    In present time, we suffer from too much information, insufficent TRUTH information, mixed messages in our information, internet hodgepodge of unreliable information, government-control-grid information, candy-coated political information, educationally corrupted and diluted information, historically-twisted information, and other anomolies of information too much to enumerate. 

    The point is that information is not as it seems to be. We need to get a serious eye upon the business of information or else we will be manipulated by information that we have not analyzed for its TRUTH. Do you want to be a victim of information bias or GIGO?

    We need common sense and guidance regarding the very nature of information. We NEED discernment and inisghts about how to analyze and sort out the onslaught of information we have come to rely upon as new 'daily bread' of life. 

    If we don't get some serious attention and discernment going on here, we will slip and slide within the mud of consciousness. We are worthy of more than such an immersion in the idea chaos GENERATED by unexamined information, and that includes the nature of information itself, yes?

    Endpoint Security Transformed

    in Technology

    Antivirus is officially dead as the main security defense for the endpoint:  a wave of startups and veteran security firms are moving away from signature-based protection to more proactive and adaptive detection and mitigation that better match the rapidly evolving and AV-evading threats of today. With the endpoint as typically the weakest link that attackers target, modern endpoint security technology is all about focusing on the client as both patient 0 and as a treasure trove of attack forensics intelligence.

    Join us for an in-depth discussion of why and how endpoint security is changing dramatically -- on the next episode of Dark Reading Radio, "Endpoint Security Transformed," Wednesday, October 21, 2015, 1:00 p.m. New York (10:00 a.m. San Francisco), hosted by Dark Reading Executive Editor Kelly Jackson Higgins. Our guests include Intel Security/McAfee’s Candace Worley, senior vice president and general manager of endpoint security. Register now and join us Wednesday, October 21, 2015, 1:00 p.m. ET.

    Homeland Security - Intelligence and Citizen Protection Guidelines

    in Training

    Brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) www.tapsti.org, this 2-hour session will review the work of Mark Sauter and James Carafano and their excellent textbook entitled “Homeland Security” (2012, 2nd ed.). This seminar introduces the listener to Homeland Security intelligence processes, methods, structure, and resources. In this seminar we will discuss Intelligence Collection and what counterintelligence is and does. To truly appreciate the role intelligence management has in our society we discuss intelligence organizations, missions, activities, and how state and local law enforcement tie into this whole complicated array of intelligence gathering and management to keep us safe. The latter part of the discussion is based on the new Departmnet of the Army publication "Protection of Civilians ATP 3-07.6" (29 October 2015 Release) and a discussion of how this could be modified to apply, in large part, to professional policing operations here in the United States.
