The article, “Unlocking Interoperability: What It Means for Next-Generation Public Safety Communications,” by Robert Stack, which appeared in the in the July 21st issue of Homeland Security Today, hits home for many of us who manufacture emergency communications equipment.

Kabul in 2015. Saigon in 1975. There’s a Glaring Comparison

Excellent piece [Godfrey Garner, Contributing Writer] written by an operator instead of just another clueless civilian. Couldn’t agree more with the point(s) and statements made. Our current situation is one of the many reasons we as a country are in the serious position that we’re in. It is time for serious people to make serious… Keep Reading

‘Preparation for the Totally Unknown is Essential’ — Especially Cyber

I would say that we should prepare especially for cyber! While there is some degree of experience on all other catastrophes (excluding meteorites maybe), no one knows really what’s going to happen in case of a major cyber attack or catastrophe. No one ever experienced that. If you consider that hurricanes are nothing new and… Keep Reading

Lauding Our Diversity of Coverage

My thinking is that [the Dec-Jan, 2013-2014 issue of Homeland Security Today] is a good example of the type of disparate, yet relevant information HST offers its readers. In my mind, three standout articles were: the editorial, “Fill All the Leadership Positions at DHS;" “Social Media Has Intelligence Value for Border Security;" and “Systems Shutdown."… Keep Reading

The Surveillance State: How Did it Come to This

To the Editor: Kudos to Dan Verton for speaking out against the surveillance state being amassed in the name of the American people without their knowledge or consent [Homeland Security Today Editor’s Letter, June/July 2013]. A KGB-like fortress mentality has taken hold that poses a serious threat to US credibility around the globe. The problem is you can’t keep… Keep Reading

Sen. Tom Coburn Commends ‘Solutions-based Approach’ toward Fusion Center Problems in HSToday.us Editorial

Open Letter to the Internet Community from Halon Security: The Battle Against Cybercrime Begins With Your Email

Trojans, viruses, malware – the stuff of nightmares for any IT-driven corporation. Anti-virus software on every desktop computer in the enterprise is considered to be standard practice, but the idea of actually stopping the attacks on the corporate IT infrastructure before they get behind the firewall seems to be an idea that hasn’t established itself. Why… Keep Reading

Data Showing Drop in the Numbers of Illegal Immigrants Questioned

Regarding the recent news that illegal immigration is way down, I would suggest that the numbers are unreliable at best. Down here, on the Arizona-Mexico border, over the last few weeks we have seen significant increases in the number and size of groups coming across the border. Media reports from Texas have disclosed similar observations there.… Keep Reading

Dear Sir or Madam: Th[e] essay by Ian Oxnevad, The Occupy Movement: Rising Anarchy, contains factually incorrect information that it is very important to remove.

Reader Mistakes Homeland Security Today as Official DHS ‘Media Outlet’

All lies! I came [to the Homeland Security Today website] because I was shocked to find out that the Department of Homeland Security had a media outlet. Is this what will replace NBC’s “The Today show?” I saw your "Senior Washington Correspondent" on C-Span … this is tyranny in its boldest form. Welcome to 1984.… Keep Reading
