Military Cyber-Security for the Digital Age

Posted on Jul 15, 2015 in Military News | 0 comments

Protecting sensitive information from adversaries has been part of security since man first began to establish communities. Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) has always played a role in national defense, and although the nature of the assets to be protected has changed, the reasons remain the same: to keep vital information out of the hands of potential adversaries. With the increased destructive power and easy availability of technology, threats to local, national and international security have never been more widespread or terrible in their potential implications; criminal elements can cause the collapse of financial systems or global chaos with one keystroke. A Shift in Perspective The protection of sensitive data is essential, with the potential to cost billions of dollars in losses and millions of hours of productivity.

Choosing a Semi-Automatic Rifle: Why Semi?

Posted on Aug 28, 2014 in Military News | 0 comments

Since the technology appeared around the turn of the 19th century, semi-automatic operation has been heavily used in pistols, shotguns and rifles. Also referred to as self-loading or autoloading, the semi-automatic firearm is the standard used for many different applications. For those who aren’t quite clear about the differences, semi-automatic operation means that every time the trigger is pulled a bullet is fired and the force is used to eject the spent casing and load a new cartridge into the chamber. This differs from earlier types of actions like lever and bolt in which the user had to manually eject the casings and load a new cartridge. And although the two are commonly confused, semi-auto actions are not the same as fully automatic operation in which one pull of the trigger will continuously fire bullets until the trigger is...
