A year later: Hospitals boost security after shooting
Armed security guards are coming to Renown Health's two hospital campuses in Reno after last year's shooting that left a Urology Nevada doctor dead and two others injured before the gunman killed himself.
It's part of Renown's ongoing enhanced safety program that includes more staff training, more control over building access and faster lock-down capabilities if needed, said Dawn Ahner, Renown chief financial officer.
Do the police belong in public schools?
By Archita Datta Majumdar
Recent news reports of police and citizens clashing all over America have been disturbing indeed. What is remarkable that many of the protestors are American youth and even schoolchildren in some instances, painting an even more complicated picture. The increasing presence of police in schools shows how opposing forces are splitting the system apart from within — authorities that want more control over the future generation who are unwilling to give it.
Supreme Court Rules employers are not required to pay for security time
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled unanimously that companies do not have to pay workers for time spent in anti-theft security screening at the end of a shift. The decision is a major victory for retail enterprises and manufacturing businesses that could have been on the hook for billions of dollars in back pay for time spent in security screenings.

FBI: 90 percent of cyber security systems out there would not have been able to block the Sony hackers
The cyberattack that crippled Sony Pictures, led to theft of confidential data and leak of movies on the Internet would have challenged almost any cyber security measures, the FBI has said. The FBI's investigation into the attack has found that the level of sophistication of the software used by the hackers was "extremely high" and that the attacks were "organized and certainly persistent."
4 of the best online sources for learning network security
There are lot of free and paid resources available online for learning network security and here is my full compilation of resources for learning and mastering network security.
Why eel drones are the future of naval warfare
In the decade ahead, unmanned underwater vehicles, or UUVs, may have the same sort of disruptive effects on militaries as their flying counterparts. More than 12 countries are at work on undersea robots, which some militaries, including the United States, use to check for mines, map the sea floor and collect weather data. There's no reason they couldn't be used to defend battleships from small boats or even carry out attacks on enemy divers. But what will they look like? A team of researchers from Singapore led by Jianxin Xu recently debuted a robotic eel design prototype that could signal the future of undersea warfare.
Report: Access control upstages video surveillance in the quest for driving growth
Poor trading conditions across the developed world in recent years have caused physical security equipment buyers to hold back on replacing old systems unless they can be sure that the new systems improve the effectiveness of security, reduce operating costs and deliver an improved and satisfactory ROI on their expenditure.
