IAPSC hosts 30th Annual Conference
Frank Pisciotta, CSC, IAPSC President
The Conference in New Orleans was another chapter in the continuing successful conferences that we have enjoyed of late. There appeared to be universal appreciation for the content and location of the conference. Thank you to our conference sponsors & exhibitors.

Also in New Orleans, we held a board meeting and covered some critical topics such as effective financial management to maximize member benefits, bylaws maintenance and created an educational committee to better manage the related but currently separate initiatives such as Successful Security Consulting and the Certified Security Consultant designation.

Card access is dead
Gerald Forstater, Professional Systems Engineering, IAPSC Member

In the timeframe of 2016 to 2020, over 50 percent of all card access manufacturers will have decided to abandon "old-fashioned legacy technology" in lieu of a new IP technology, supported by a multitude of newer operating systems and A browser-based interface. This will put many users in a state of hostage negotiation for software support and replacement parts. To stay with existing systems would require the use of third party software development companies and obtaining new providers with remanufactured products.

Defending against identity theft in the military
Dark Reading
People in the military knowingly agree to put their lives in danger when they enlist, but there's something else they're putting on the line that they have not agreed to risk. More people reporting identity theft are members of the military than of any other demographic in the U.S. While this is shocking, upon further analysis, it is not particularly surprising.

Help wanted: 3 ways to minimize new-hire risk
Catherine Iste
Great news: Companies are hiring again. In fact, today's Labor Department numbers show unemployment in the U.S. falling to 6.3 percent — the lowest figure since September 2008. But with each new hire comes threats to the organization's integrity. From potential shifts in the culture with each new personality to actual security breaches and confidentiality of trade secrets, we invite potential threats in the door with each hiring decision. Most organizations hedge against these risks with steps in the recruiting process like behavioral interviews and background checks. Are these steps enough?

Terrorism case defense wants surveillance records
The Associated Press via ABC News
Attorneys for a Chicago terrorism suspect are urging a federal appeals court to uphold a trial judge's decision to grant defense lawyers unprecedented access to secret intelligence-court records. In their March appeal to the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago, prosecutors said letting the defense see the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court documentation would be a "sea change" in how such sensitive documents are handled and could end up jeopardizing national security.

White House big data panel calls for privacy protections, ignores NSA
PCWorld
Congress should take action to protect privacy in response to a growing big data revolution, a White House panel has recommended, but its report does not address wide-ranging surveillance and data-collection programs at the U.S. National Security Agency. The group of officials in President Barack Obama's administration recommended that government agencies extend U.S. privacy protections to residents of other countries, but the 85-page report sidesteps the past year's controversy over the NSA's worldwide surveillance efforts. The report does note data collection efforts at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and law enforcement agencies.
