CEO's Ignoring Security Risks

More than 70 percent of the 1,233 organizations -- representing some of the leading companies in 51 countries -- failed to list training and raising employee awareness of information security issues as a top initiative.

As organizations move toward increasingly decentralized business models through outsourcing and other external partnerships, it becomes ever more difficult for them to retain control over the security of their information and for senior management to comprehend the level of risk to which they are exposed.

Csiro Researchers Develop Magnetometer For Needle Search

The team, based at Lindfield in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Sydney, can pick up a piece of a hypodermic needle less than one millimetre long at a distance of five centimetres.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

“Conventional hand-held metal detectors couldn’t find the whole needle at half that distance,” says project leader Dr Marcel Bick, who’s been running the proof of concept experiments.

“We can even detect needles wrapped in aluminium foil, which is something a standard metal detector has lots of difficulty with,” he adds.

The team has achieved great success, even finding fragments weighing less than a milligram, because their device is no ordinary metal detector: “It’s a SQUID magnetometer,” says Dr Cathy Foley, who heads up CSIRO’s work on SQUIDs.

Nvt Puts Power Up Twisted Pair

"The unparalleled interference rejection and low emissions of the NV-218A-PVD let video signals co-exist in the same wire bundle as telephone, datacom, or low-voltage power circuits," emphasizes Guy Apple, NVT vice president, marketing and sales. "This allows the use of a shared or existing cable plant, reducing costs and time of installation. As with all NVT products, the NV-218A-PVD carries a limited lifetime warranty and is UL and cUL listed."

With the new NV-218A-PVD, power, video and data are routed via UTP and RJ45 or "press-fit" terminal block inputs/outputs. When used at the camera, the passive NV-218A-PVD has a 9-inch mini-coax pigtail lead for direct video output connection from the camera.

Cctv For Sailors

The EyeOnBoard system utilizes on-board network cameras and environmental sensors to continuously monitor the yacht. The on-board systems connect via the Internet through wireless hotspots at marinas to EyeOnBoard's central servers.

The EyeOnBoard servers process and display the data into easy-to-read Web pages secured for each yacht owner. Upon logging in to his secure site, the owner has immediate real-time access to environmental sensors (shore power, flooding, temperature, humidity, and intrusion), network camera images, wireless network status and marine instrumentation data (GPS, water depth, wind speed, and status of house batteries).

The <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />EyeOnBoardYachtResponseCenter responds to alarms from the owner's yacht 24 hours a day, seven days a week using the EyeOnBoard System and notifies the owner or his designated agent of a verified sensor alert.

First Access Control Device Servers Released

Lantronix SecureBox SDS1100 and SDS2100 are the industry’s first and only device servers certified by NIST to securely connect, access, and transport data over government networks and the Internet

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Honeywell has selected Lantronix’s SecureBox SDS1100 to provide enterprise class security management and access control solutions that meet the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />U.S. government’s mandated Advanced Encryption Standards for high security installations.

The Honeywell Security Manager, a component of the Honeywell Enterprise Buildings Integrator suite, is designed to address the stringent requirements for secure data communications within networked devices at government facilities. The Lantronix SecureBox line of device servers and the Honeywell Security Manager are both available immediately.

Voice Over Ip Is In Law EnforcementS Sights

The solution allows VOIP transmissions, which have been inaccessible to law enforcement agencies, to be logged and tapped in the same way telephone signals can be.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

PacketCable represents the cable industry's interoperable interface specifications for a wide variety of services. PacketCable networks use Internet Protocol (IP) technology to offer services such as Voice over IP, otherwise known as IP telephony.

"The latest issue of this technical specification represents a milestone in the cable industry's efforts to address law enforcement's concerns regarding VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) services made available by cable companies," said Kerry Haynes, FBI Assistant Director responsible for Investigative Technologies.

Half Of All Cctv Systems Now Digital

135 participants (50 per cent) replied that half or more of their CCTV installations involve computer networks. And 20 per cent reported that almost 100 per cent of their installations now involve a link to a computer network of some kind.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Ian Fowler, Norbain's Technical Training Manager is not surprised by the figures:

"We have known from anecdotal feedback from customers for several years that the proportion of systems being linked to computer networks is growing significantly.

“This survey confirms that trend and may even suggest that CCTV-IT integration is becoming the norm rather than the exception. This has many implications of course.

PelcoS New Dvrs

The new System 9770 and System 9780 system architectures are specifically designed to accommodate higher camera-monitor density, enabling users to implement large matrix-controlled video surveillance systems that require less space to install and operate.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

This means a user can view and control up to 4,096 cameras and 512 monitors, all from a single node, in a footprint smaller than ever before possible. The base hardware configuration for the system is comprised of a central processing unit (CC1), matrix switching bay(s) (MXBs) with video input/output modules, and keyboard controllers (KBDs).

In addition to advances in system architecture, firmware updates can be accomplished via flash technology by simply connecting a PC laptop to the serial port of the matrix bay. This increases system serviceability as well as minimizes the time required to update the system.
