IAPSC launches online RFP Portal, congratulates Sennewald on ASIS Presidential Award of Merit
A Message from IAPSC President, Harold Gillens
IAPSC Members — Your Board of Directors is constantly working hard to bring maximum value to your membership in the IAPSC. To that end, I am pleased announce a newly developed member benefit: the IAPSC RFP Portal. This new tool on the IAPSC website allows contracting officers/buyers to create and distribute an online solicitation for security consulting services from IAPSC members. It provides a RFP/RFQ template to be completed online by the buyer, which is then automatically disseminated to qualified members.
While many members were involved in contributing to aspects of the portal development, I especially want to thank Ken Wheatley, Frank Pisciotta, and Jim Kelton who have been intricately involved with me in developing and testing the portal.
I invite you to take a look the portal here and spread the word to your network: http://iapsc.org/rfp.
In other great news, please join me in congratulating IAPSC Founder Chuck Sennewald who will be honored as a recipient of this year's the Presidential Award of Merit. He is being recognized for a career of contributions to the Security Body of Knowledge through his prolific writings and countless presentations at ASIS and other industry events. Chuck will receive the award at the ASIS Seminar and Exhibits in Anaheim, California during the luncheon on Monday, Sept. 28, 2015.

Security Info Watch
According to John Byrnes, founder and CEO of the Center for Aggression Management, there are two different categories of aggression that people whom commit violent acts fall under: primal aggression and cognitive aggression. Primal aggression, which is characterized by the primal instincts of fight or flight and fueled by adrenaline, is seen in those persons, who driven by panic or rage; simply lose control in the moment. Cognitive aggression, on the other hand, is characterized as conscious, deliberate aggression which is intent driven.

Security screening gets mixed reviews at theater
A simple trip to the movies could be a bit more complicated if more cinema chains choose to beef up their security after a string of recent theater shootings. But moviegoers in Boston had varied opinions on added security. The Herald reported that National Amusements Inc., which owns 31 movie theaters in Massachusetts and five other states, would start searching people's bags and purses in the wake of a shooting at a theater in Antioch, Tennessee, that left one dead and three injured. That violence came two weeks after two people were killed and nine others injured by a gunman at a cinema in Lafayette, Louisiana.

Despite public perception about the threat of extremists inspired by al-Qaida and the Islamic State, a new study shows that law enforcement officers are more concerned about the homegrown terrorist next door.

How wearable tech can help police
By Archita Datta Majumdar
A recent article in InPublicSafety's July issue hails the modern police as "RoboCops," a testament to the fact there is a tectonic shift towards technology in police work. While many departments are still struggling with budget issues, upgrades and technology improvements are imperative to effective policing in modern times. In fact, more wearable technologies are being adapted for law enforcement uses than other industries.
Psychologists approve ban on role in national security interrogations
The New York Times
The American Psychological Association overwhelmingly approved a new ban on any involvement by psychologists in national security interrogations conducted by the United States government, even noncoercive interrogations now conducted by the Obama administration. The council of representatives of the organization, the nation's largest professional association of psychologists, voted to impose the ban at its annual meeting.
Cybersecurity job market to suffer severe workforce shortage
An analysis of the cybersecurity job market looking back at 2014, the first half of 2015, and projecting out to 2019, reveals some interesting figures. For instance, the top paying cybersecurity job is a security software engineer with an average annual salary of $233,333, according to a recent report from the job board Dice. That tops the salary for a CSO which is $225,000. But the big story in the cybersecurity labor market is a severe workforce shortage.
