Brexit threatens mayhem for homeless Europeans who call Britain home
Thousands of Europeans who sleep rough on Britain’s streets could be at risk of further deprivation - be it detention or deportation - once the country leaves the European Union and they lose their right to remain. While Britain’s exact departure date is unclear, charities fear no amount of extra time will help thousands of homeless Europeans prepare the paperwork and complete the procedures needed to stay on legally in the country they now call home. “Everybody is worried about Brexit,” said Piotr, a 39-year-old Pole who lives on the streets of Northampton in central England. Piotr moved to Britain 15 years ago but has now slept rough for months since losing his job in a warehouse. “I want to stay in England, it’s a fantastic country for me and the problem (of having no place to live) at the moment is because I couldn’t find work,” said Piotr, who preferred not to give his full name in a phone interview.

Owl Cyber Defense Acquires Trident Assured Collaboration Systems to Enhance Advanced Network Security Capabilities

Owl Cyber Defense Solutions | January 06, 2021

Owl Cyber Defense Solutions, LLC ("Owl"), a worldwide market pioneer in cybersecurity solutions and administrations for safeguarding network limits and empowering secure information sharing across spaces, reported today the acquisition of the Trident Assured Collaboration Systems ("ACS") product offering. ACS has the lone U.S. government-endorsed Voice over IP ("VoIP") and Video Teleconference ("VTC") Cross Domain Solution ("CDS") just as the business' most progressive Full Motion Video ("FMV") separating capacity – usefulness basic to CDS tasks in a period of robots and cameras. The acquisition gives Owl a more extensive scope of affirmed network edge defense solutions than any rival on the lookout. Owl, supported by private venture firm DC Capital Partners, has been a main supplier of CDS to the U.S. Branch of Defense ("DoD") and Intelligence Community for over 20 years. Owl is additionally the worldwide pioneer in cybersecurity security for basic foundation, offering the lone U.S. government tried and licensed CDS accessible for arrangement inside and outside the U.S to both government and business customers. Owl's Cross Domain Solutions offer the most elevated level of organization border security, far surpassing the capacities of firewalls and other typical organization defenses. Owl's items are the decision for ensuring the country's most touchy organizations and frameworks against assault. Late episodes have exhibited the failure of inheritance firewalls to forestall cyberattacks against basic business and working frameworks and cloud-based applications. The blend of Owl and ACS's innovation offers a full continuum of CDS items that give equipment upheld space detachment and layers of information separating confirmation as opposed to a solitary organization line checkpoint with negligible substance sifting. Thomas J. Campbell, Chairman of Owl and Founder and Managing Partner of DC Capital, said, "This is another step in executing our strategic vision. The acquisition of ACS not only places Owl ahead of other Cross Domain Solution providers, but it also plays a pivotal role in our larger strategy to offer true cybersecurity protection. The future requires solutions that are cost effective and easy to implement, use, and maintain." "The explosion of the Internet of Things ("IoT") demands cyber-secure devices, from those that control our critical infrastructure, to our homes and cars," said Campbell. "The technology Owl pioneered 20 years ago is now available in form factors small enough to be embedded inside devices. Owl has always been an early mover, the first to develop hardware-enforced network protection and now the first to offer a hardware-enforced CDS that can be embedded." "Owl has been rapidly moving towards this number one position for the last couple of years," commented Robert Stalick, President and CEO of Owl. "With the addition of ACS, the last piece has fallen into place. Owl is now the clear leader in accredited Cross Domain Solution offerings, with the widest range of capabilities and products – solving problems from tactical to enterprise in data, voice, and video; for government, critical infrastructure and commercial enterprises." Solutions like firewalls that worked 25 years prior as an organization security approach are not, at this point viable against country state quality assaults. As country state assaults increment, the methodologies utilized by state entertainers start to saturate the criminal side of cyberattacks. Viable cybersecurity presently requires an incorporated, multi-layered framework with information diode equipment parts in gatekeepers which perform escalated information assessment and confirmation. The up and coming age of insurance, coming out now and based on a mix of Owl and ACS innovation, inserts CDS usefulness in incredibly low-inertness, unmodifiable equipment. Jerry B. Chernock, Partner at DC Capital, added, "It is obvious that we need to address the inadequacy of firewalls. There is a reason why our clients insist on Cross Domain Solutions and not solely on firewalls. Recent attacks, including a security breach at a prominent U.S. based cybersecurity firm and several U.S. Government agencies, have punctuated the need for intelligence, military, critical infrastructure and corporate clients to quickly evolve how they protect their networks." "The sophistication of these technologies cannot be overstated," said Ken Walker, Chief Technology Officer at Owl. "The U.S. Government continues to set the standards for the most rigorous operational requirements and testing regimes globally, setting expectations that very few companies can meet. Owl is one of a handful of elite companies that satisfies the government-established 'Raise the Bar' requirements." About Owl Cyber Defense Solutions Owl has been serving the cybersecurity needs of the U.S. government since inception – providing hardware-enforced cybersecurity controls, industry leading expertise in operating system hardening, extensive device and network-based assessment services and thought-leadership in filtering/data processing disciplines.
