  • What is Section 508 compliance?

    The short answer is that it’s a law that was established to ensure that websites are accessible to those with disabilities. This could be users who are blind, or it could be for folks who don’t have use of their arms and cannot navigate a website like others might. They might need a screen reader, such as JAWS.

  • "Cyberwar" is a heavily loaded term, which conjures up Hollywood inspired images of hackers causing oil refineries to explode.

    Some security celebrities came out very strongly against the thought of it, claiming that cyberwar was less science, and more science fiction.

    Last year on May 21, the United States Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) reported reaching initial operational capability, and news stories abound of US soldiers undergoing basic cyber training, which all point to the idea that traditional super powers are starting to explore this arena.

    Recent activities with one government contractor and Anonymous, however, show clearly that cyber operations have been going on for a long while, and that the private sector has been only too ready to fill the cyber mercenary role for piles of cash.
