#BringBackOurGirls

The White House, Washington

 

Just three weeks into my presidency, I made a promise to the people of Elkhart, Indiana.

It was the first city I visited as President. Folks there had been hit harder by the recession than almost anywhere else in America. The unemployment rate was on its way to nearly twenty percent. Companies that had sustained that community for years were shedding jobs at an alarming speed -- and hardworking families were losing their homes and health care along with those jobs.

Maritime vessels are under significant threat of cyber-attack because many are carrying outdated software and were not designed with cyber security in mind, according to new research.

But operators could easily mitigate against such dangers by updating security systems, improving ship design and providing better training for crews, the study led by Plymouth University’s Maritime Cyber Threats Research Group suggests.

Fundraisers from all over the country are getting ready for Blesma Week – the fundraising initiative that raises money for Blesma, The Limbless Veterans, a charity that supports injured service personnel.

Starting on Monday 06 June, Blesma Week looks to encourage people to get involved with fundraising for Blesma either by running their own event, or by joining one already organised by the charity.

RICHARDSON, TX: Optex Systems, Inc. has announced it has received a $1.1 million purchase order to supply critical optical assemblies from Optex's Applied Optics Center (AOC) Division.

This award is part of a strategic multi-year $6 million supply agreement which is expected to exceed $6 million in revenues. Optex's precision optical assemblies utilizes thin film coating capabilities for optical systems and components primarily used for military purposes.

Berkeley, CA: Symetrica has introduced a prototype wearable detector system that provides high-sensitivity, high-accuracy and resolution for an improved source detection performance. The compact and lightweight Neutron Vest, which has been officially presented at the 2016 IEEE Symposium on Radiation Measurements and Applications (SORMA), will provide security professionals an alternative to backpack and handheld systems guaranteeing the same level of performance against the ANSI standard but with substantially reduced weight and bulk.

Wargaming is once again partnering with The Tank Museum, Bovington, to sponsor TANKFEST, one of the world’s best displays of historic armored vehicles, held June 25–26. Last year’s event saw almost 20,000 enthusiasts from around the world visit Bovington, with tickets selling out for the first time since the inaugural TANKFEST in 2000.

London, UK: Encode recently launched SaaS version and its managed security monitoring solution, offering Cyber Early Warning and Adaptive Response to combat advanced persistent threat attacks.
