Mexican president wants to 'bring order' to Central American migration to U.S

Mexico will help to regulate the flow of Central American migrants passing through its territory to the United States, but the root causes behind the phenomenon must be tackled, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Monday. Speaking after U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday threatened to close the U.S. southern border if Mexico did not halt illegal immigration immediately, Lopez Obrador said he would not have a confrontation with the United States. “I prefer love and peace,” Lopez Obrador told reporters at his regular morning news conference. The leftist president has consistently refused to get drawn into a war of words with Trump over the border.

Business Wire | October 12, 2023

Mark43, the leading cloud-native public safety software company, today announced that it has achieved State Risk and Authorization Management Program (StateRAMP) High Impact Level Authorization. Mark43 brings the most mature security controls to Computer-Aided Dispatch, Records Management System, and Analytics platforms delivered on Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud to more than 200 public safety agencies and their communities. Mark43 is the first public safety technology company to achieve StateRAMP High Impact Level Authorization, certifying its commitment to protecting the privacy and security of its customers’ data, particularly for state, local and tribal governments. StateRAMP, the State Risk and Authorization Management Program, is a highly respected and recognized certification program for cloud cybersecurity excellence. It provides state and local governments assurance that the technology vendors they are working with meet rigorous cybersecurity standards through independent audits and ongoing continuous monitoring. It is inspired by and adapted from the FedRAMP standards and framework. By achieving StateRAMP High Impact Level Authorization and having achieved FedRAMP High In Process, Mark43 demonstrates its commitment to providing state and local government customers with the highest level of cybersecurity protection possible. “With more than 1,000 known attacks against U.S. public safety agencies and local governments since 2021, the stakes have never been higher,” said Mark43 Chief Executive Officer Robert Hughes. “According to IBM’s ‘Cost of a Data Breach Report 2023,’ the average cost of a cybersecurity breach is $4.45M million and in this current climate, state and local governments are under constant attack. Mark43 is the first public safety technology company to achieve StateRAMP High Impact Level Authorization – verification that Mark43 delivers the resilient, reliable and secure CAD and RMS that cities and states need. Law enforcement agencies simply cannot afford to partner with a technology provider that does not achieve this level of cybersecurity maturity.” “Government agencies, public safety agencies, and institutions of higher education are very real targets for hackers and cyberattacks,” said Mark43 Chief Information Security Officer Larry Zorio. “The ability of these entities to verify that their partners maintain the highest levels of cybersecurity controls is critical. This StateRAMP High Impact Level Authorization is proof that Mark43 offers best-in-class cybersecurity controls.” “Achieving StateRAMP High Impact Level Authorization now makes it even easier for state and local agencies to partner with Mark43, and we’re thrilled to help government partners deliver for the communities they serve,” said Mark43 Chief Revenue Officer Tim Merrigan.
