“But it’s different if you start looking at the financial sector,” he said. “There it’s Russia, and frankly it’s the United States as well. And, in particular, Long Island seems to have a very high prevalence of attackers hitting the financial sector.”
CEO C. Scott Hartz, said the software is being sold to government customers, the financial-services industry, public utilities and other critical infrastructure, as well as the health care industry and retail businesses that use credit cards.
“We have a stream of threat intelligence that identifies the bad things that are out there in the world,” Mr. Hartz said.
The software was developed over the past five years and licensed from SRI International. It is currently in use at a number of government agencies that use the real-time anti-cyberattack monitoring system.
Air Force adds gay lawyers
Political correctness in the Air Force reached new heights this month when the Air Force Judge Advocate General Corps announced plans to hire gay lawyers as part of its diversity program.
The Corps “values diversity as one of the great strengths, and to that end aggressively takes part in all manner of outreach and recruiting at national diversity-related events,” Air ForceMaj. Sean M. Elameto, chief of the service’s legal recruiting efforts, stated in an Air Force newsletter.
Past locations for lawyer recruiting took place at meetings of the National Bar Association, Hispanic National Bar Association, the Asian Pacific American Bar Association and other law student groups, he said.
“This year we hit a historic milestone by recruiting at the Lavender Law Convention — an annual career fair for lesbian, gay and bisexual attorneys,” Maj. Elameto stated.
The Air Force receives 20 applications, many from graduates of top law schools for each JAG entry position.
Said one military critic of the policy: Instead of seeking the best qualified applicants, the politically correct service is now spending money to recruit at the Lavender Law Convention, “rather than simply consider best-qualified applicants without preference or prejudice as to gender, religious beliefs or sexual preference.”
“Looks like fraud, waste, abuse and discrimination to me,” the official said.
