A Renaissance in the Manufacturing and Industrial Sectors

October 24, 2013 Added by:Rafal Los

After what appears to be decades of systematically ignoring security challenges, the recent climate of breaches seems to have shaken something loose. Purse strings have loosened. Boards have begun to ask security questions when they have never done so before.

Cyber Security Failures: Value of the Human Firewall

August 07, 2013 Added by:Jon Stout

The computing security model of the past decade, based on firewalls, anti-viral services, intrusion detection controls, system event monitoring, VPNs, etc., is failing to detect and block the most advanced malware. That is serious enough. But what’s worse is that this traditional defense model is of little use in preventing what many experts feel is the greatest threat to cyber security: human e...

Top Secret SCI Jobs - The Value of Smaller Contractors

July 30, 2013 Added by:Jon Stout

You can be doing all the right things, adding immense value to your customer and helping your company build a great brand. When a contract changes even incumbents are suddenly “on the bench” or “between projects” or “on overhead” . You are no longer billable.
