We’re out of the office today but wanted to note quickly that SC Magazine Australia is reporting that a German police network has been  hacked, and suspect tracking data stolen. Hackers have broken into the German Federal Police and swiped location data used to track suspects. The attack launched by the left-wing n0-N4m3 Cr3w hacking […]

July 7, 2011 by

Rocky DeStefano is friend of ours. A former Air Force intelligence guy, he found that his ability to envision order in fantastically huge datasets and articulate paths to sanity suited people well in such companies as ArcSight (which went public, then was taken private by HP), Decurity (which he sold to RSA), and NetWitness (which […]

Last week we talked about the need to secure police networks. This week the dicsusion will continue, but first we should note that it appears the Arizona Department of Public Safety has suffered another breach – or at the least, that a second tranche of stolen documents has been published. The second tranche, which we […]

Get Yer Buzzword On: Marketing Law Enforcement Technology

It started at LEIM when I was speaking with a Laserfiche; as I wrote yesterday, Laserfiche “…specialize in taking the printed output of all your disparate systems including CAD, RMS and GIS, placing them within a single digital bucket, and allowing you to classify, sort, search, store, print, and aggregate (if not correlate).” That’s not, […]

So I’m in San Diego, CA for the 35th Annual IACP Law Enforcement Information Management Training Conference & Exposition here at the unfathomably unhip Hilton San Diego Bayfront (diet Coke: $5) and there are some very interesting technologies I’m taking a closer look at today. By the way, Alex Bond (@bond_alexander on Twitter) sent me […]

II – Mobile Viruses: Truths, Fiction and Primers for Cops

May 23, 2011 by

0

We’ve recently seen some extraordinary activity in the mobile device virus world, as heaps of hype and piles of blogposts were shoveled on the world. We were left with the impression that iPhones, iPads and Macs had finally succumbed to the wrath of the malicious code writers; that Google’s android phones were completely insecure; and […]

In our agency (in the Dallas-Fort Worth area), all rookies have to do a stint in dispatch. Henderson served as a dispatcher for years and knew exactly what I was in for. He saw my reaction when I filled in my first DWI report. I made a late-life conversion into the cop thing — I […]

I’ve decided to call today Cyber Thursday because I’m going out on patrol today and testing a new hush-hush technology. I’ll be brief because I’m a little late. Yesterday there were a couple of cool things out there that I thought I’d point to. First of all I wanted to re-mention Maltego from yesterday since […]

May 11, 2011 by

There’s been no PLI Podcast for the past two Wednesdays because of Dave’s and my travel schedule but we’ll be back next week with some new stuff we hope you’ll agree is pretty good and worth the wait.
