The apparent deliberate downing of a Malaysian passenger plane over eastern Ukraine highlights the need for an urgent resumption of a ceasefire and a serious effort to end the ongoing crisis, the United Nations political chief told an emergency meeting of the Security Council last week.



The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN needs to as a matter of urgency wade into this sort of enslavement going on currently in Nigeria, not only in the security sector, but in all sectors where foreigners actively participate in the country's economic activities milking Nigeria dry, paying little or no taxes, yet pay their Nigerian staff mere peanuts.

Boss of the SIA Executive Bill Butler welcomes the key findings of the recently published IFSEC and Optima Group 2014 Security Training and The Security Industry Authority (SIA) Survey.

LONDON (UK): A survey amongst 250 IT security professionals, conducted during this year’s Infosecurity Europe show, has revealed that 20% of organisations believe malicious insiders pose the biggest threat to their security. A further 44% suggest employee’s ignorance could also cause defences to crumble. Hardly surprising, then, that this audience firmly pointed the finger at ‘people’ (70%) as the most frequent point of failure in an organisation’s IT security, with 20% citing processes and just 9% at technology.
