The Iran deal and collective security
A buoyant President Barack Obama announced on April 2 "a historic understanding with Iran" to defang its nuclear program. Chalk one up for the president's oft-criticized Middle East diplomacy. If it holds, the deal will indeed be a major foreign policy accomplishment for a president who badly needs one. But equally, if not more important, it could breathe new life into collective security.
US targets overseas cyber attackers with sanctions program
President Barack Obama launched a sanctions program to target individuals and groups outside the United States that use cyber attacks to threaten U.S. foreign policy, national security or economic stability.
In an executive order, Obama declared such activities a "national emergency" and allowed the U.S. Treasury Department to freeze assets and bar other financial transactions of entities engaged in destructive cyber attacks.

OSHA issues new guidance on workplace violence 4261
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration released new guidance to help healthcare and social service workers better protect themselves from workplace violence. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 27 out of the 100 fatalities in the healthcare and social service fields in 2013 were due to assaults and violent acts. But the number of non-fatal assaults that resulted in serious injuries was far greater.
What role does your building have in securing students?
By Charlie Howell
The four guiding principles of security are deter, detect, delay and respond. Law enforcement, military and security teams have created other versions of these principles, but these are the core of providing security for any type of organization, entity or people. Therefore, when securing students in schools, we have to examine our efforts toward these basic core principles. A mix of technology, staffing, organizational structure and equipment comprises the actual security plan, but for now let's take a look at the role that school buildings play in securing schools.
Technology that strives to deter crime while changing hearts and minds
Security Info Watch
It is not often that a technology company in the public safety sector talks as much about creating meaningful social change as it does catching the bad guys. But as ShotSpotter (SST) CEO Ralph Clark says, "At the end of the day, if we don't evolve some type of change management in policing regarding how they respond to gun violence and subsequently collaborate with the community, all you have is a fancy system that puts dots on a map."
Experts: 2015 is the year of the healthcare breach
By Scott E. Rupp
Breaches, breaches everywhere. It seems there's no shortage of news about security breaches and their effect on healthcare. In an effort to better paint the picture of breaches in healthcare, Software Advice recently published research focusing on how recent HIPAA breaches, like the cyberattacks at Anthem and Premera Blue Cross, have impacted U.S. patients' trust, treatment and retention. According to the organization, security experts warn that we're in the year of the healthcare hack.

4 insurance issues arising from body cameras and private security
Property Casualty 360
Body cameras have quickly become a hot-button issue for law enforcement and policymakers, and now they are poised to become a private security and insurance issue, too. There is certainly a chance for increased liability with the use of body cameras among private security officers, but in the long run, it may be a boon to insurers, security guard firms and the people they protect.

Good cyber security can't be bought at Wal-Mart
If the solution to the problem of how to get good cyber security was packaged in a box and sold at Wal-Mart, IT professionals would have nothing to worry about. They could arrange for employees to pick up their security package when activating their new smartphones. Unfortunately, getting good cyber security isn't that simple. Good cyber security practices aren't purchased in a store: they have to be taught. And the sad reality is, most employees aren’t receiving a solid cyber security education.
