London: The Asian region, in particular, is considered to be a major generator of insidious malware. The main intention behind the new bugs, trojans and other such unwanted threats that emerge on a daily basis is to steal passwords. Asian firms, in particular, should therefore ensure they have security that goes beyond simple password protection. As the inventor of tokenless two-factor authentication, SecurEnvoy provides a method that uses passcodes generated dynamically on smartphones to provide additional security for login procedures. This flexible and cost-effective method will now be marketed by the Malaysian ICT expert Infinite Data, in its new role as a SecurEnvoy Authorized Distributor.

The growing sphere of influence of the Islamic State (IS) has led to an increase in extremist rhetoric and activities in many regions around the world, including Central Asia.

The Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) will host an important community program, “Gaza, the IDF Code of Ethics, and the Morality of War,” featuring Dr. Moshe Halbertal in conversation with Chancellor Arnold M. Eisen on the complicated ethical challenges faced by Israel in this summer’s war in Gaza. The discussion will explore such questions as: What moral and legal principles should guide an army in a complex confrontation that involves a tragic loss of civilian life and other major collateral damage? What values has the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) committed itself to uphold in times of war? How do we arrive at an honest account of what actually happened in Gaza, in light of competing moral considerations and the realities that Israel faced? In the wake of the Gaza war, what lessons can Israel learn, and how should Israel proceed?
