The inaugural Security 5K/Mission 500 Charity Run in Las Vegas on the second day of ISC West raised more than $30,000 to benefit Mission 500, a charitable organization engaging security professionals to sponsor children in need through the World Vision organization. Proceeds from the March 25th event will sponsor 90 children for a full year − providing food, water, education and healthcare. Event proceeds increased the number of sponsored children to more than 360 total.
More than 312 runners registered for the event, and about 250 ran. Registrants included 65 female runners, and participants hailed from 12 countries and 37 states.
 
Six of the total of seven sponsors in 2010 have renewed their commitments to support the 2011 Security 5K/Mission 500 Charity Run, already scheduled for April 7, 2011, at next year's ISC West in Las Vegas.
 
Alarm.com also committed itself to sponsor the 2011 event and discussions are under way with numerous companies who expressed interest in adding their support to the event. Two event sponsors this year also promoted special offers tied to the Security 5K, including HID Global and Deister Electronics.
 
At a Reception and Awards Ceremony for Security 5K runners, Mission 500 awarded its first “Mission 500 Humanitarian Award” to Alan Forman, President of Altronix Corporation. The award honors individuals in the security industry who make important contributions to those in need.

Virtualization and Data Center Security: What You Need to Know for 2014

Data centers are increasingly becoming the center of the enterprise, and data center and cyber security is following the same path for security departments. According to Justin Flynn, a consultant at the Burwood Group, the virtualization of data centers allows enterprises to scale more easily and faster, with a smaller footprint.

However, hosting enterprise data in the cloud can make intrusion detection more difficult – how can enterprise security leaders team up with other departments to keep aware of cyber risks and traffic, and physical and data compliance during the virtual transition? How can CISOs and CSOs discuss cyber threats with the C-Suite to get the resources they need? And how can the proper infrastructure test and verify possible malicious attacks?
