The Deputy National Security Advisor is a member of the Executive Office of the President of the United States and the United States National Security Council, serving under the Presidents National Security Advisor. Among other responsibilities, the Deputy National Security Advisor often serves as Executive Secretary to the National Security Council Principals Committee, and as chairman of the National Security Council Deputies Committee. The role changes according to the organizational philosophy and staffing of each White House and there are often multiple deputies to the National Security Advisor charged with various areas of focus.[1][2] The position is currently being held by Charles Kupperman since 2019. ...
Significant weaknesses in the asset securitization practices of some banking organizations have raised concerns about the general level of understanding and controls in institutions that engage in such activities. Securitization activities present unique and sometimes complex risks that require the attention of senior management and the board of directors. The purpose of this SR letter is to underscore the importance of sound risk management practices in all aspects of asset securitization. This letter and the attached guidance, developed jointly by the federal banking agencies, should be distributed to state member banks, bank holding companies, and foreign banking organizations supervised by the Federal Reserve that engage in securitization activities. Retained interests, including interest-only strips receivable, arise when a selling institution keeps an interest in assets sold to a securitization vehicle that, in turn, issues bonds to investors. Supervisors are concerned about the methods ...
The predecessor to the National Security Council was the National Intelligence Authority (NIA) which was established by President Harry S. Trumans Executive Letter of 22 January 1946 to oversee the Central Intelligence Group, the CIAs predecessor. The NIA was composed of the Secretary of State, Secretary of War, Secretary of the Navy, and the Chief of Staff to the Commander in Chief. The National Security Council was created in 1947 by the National Security Act. It was created because policymakers felt that the diplomacy of the State Department was no longer adequate to contain the USSR in light of the tension between the Soviet Union and the United States.[1] The intent was to ensure coordination and concurrence among the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and other instruments of national security policy such as the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), also created in the National Security Act. In 2004, the position of Director of National Intelligence (DNI) was created, taking over the ...
When Edward Snowden leaked Americas extensive surveillance practices, it didnt just impact American citizens. It changed the way people all over the world thought about their data privacy and how it impacts national security. The increased focus on data privacy hasnt only affected governments either. It has shed new light onto the data collection practices of businesses. Many have called into question how businesses should handle data, with national security matters (Apples refusal to unlock an iPhone is a great example) and data breaches creating big discussions on the subject. A fine line People feel just as negatively about the collection of their personal data today as they did in 2013. However, despite the negative associations, people are becoming more willing to let their data be collected if it will protect national security. Astonishingly, only 20% of people surveyed in 2016 dont support the use of personal data to protect national security. This is a major decrease from the 42% who were
Today, President Obama signed a Presidential Memorandum on Climate Change and National Security, a historic measure in addressing the national security implications of our changing climate. The memorandum establishes a policy to consider the impacts of climate change in the development of national security-related doctrine, policies, and plans and provides practical guidance to ensure these climate risks are considered. This includes the establishment of a Federal Climate and National Security Working Group (consisting of more than 20 federal agencies and offices), which will identify priorities related to climate change and national security; facilitate the exchange of climate data and information with the intelligence community and identify gaps; recommend research guidelines concerning the federal governments ability to detect climate intervention activities; identify the most current information on regional, country, and geographic areas most vulnerable to current and projected impacts of ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! In this article, we incorporate a jump process into the original Lee-Carter model, and use it to forecast mortality rates and analyze mortality securitization. We explore alternative models with transitory versus permanent jump effects and find that modeling mortality via transitory jump effects may be more appropriate in mortality securitization. We use the Swiss Re mortality bond in 2003 as an example to show how to apply our model together with the distortion measure approach to value mortality-linked securities. Pricing the Swiss Re mortality bond is challenging because the mortality index is correlated across countries and over time. Cox, Lin, and Wang (2006) employ the normalized multivariate exponential tilting to take into account correlations across countries, but the problem of correlation over time remains unsolved. We show in this article how to account for the correlations of the mortality index over time by simulating the mortality index and changing the

We live in an era of mass surveillance. Private companies monitor our comings and goings, and ad-supported cloud services record and mine our online activities. At the same time, governments have been conducting extensive surveillance in the name of national security. To a large extent, citizens and lawmakers have accepted loss of privacy in exchange for increased security. Can computing technology promote both personal privacy and national security? Panelists will explore how state-of-the-art cryptography, security, networked systems, and data-management technology might enable government agencies to acquire actionable, useful information about legitimate targets of investigation without intruding upon the electronic activity of innocent parties. They will also address the need to use laws and policies in conjunction with technology to hold government agencies accountable for proper use of private information.. ...

The sensors built and flown for the Laboratorys national security mission also detect natural backgrounds and odd signals such as lightning flashes-so LANL experts were called upon to create more advanced sensors that also provided data for atmospheric sciences, space-plasma science, and astrophysics. By understanding the natural backgrounds observed by our national security payloads, we can provide information on nuclear detonations with greater certainty and reliability. Our research in gamma-ray bursts has evolved into a new astronomical paradigm of thinking telescopes of today, such as RAPTOR, which is an array of ground-based telescopes that troll the night sky looking for changes of astrophysical objects as well as objects orbiting Earth. Not only can this system decipher whether signals are noise of astrophysical origin or from an object orbiting Earth, but it can do so independently while also determining in real time which data are sufficiently important to be sent back to operators ...
While American national security policy has grown more interventionist since the Cold War, Washington has also hoped to shape the world on the cheap. Misled by the stunning success against Iraq in 1991, administrations of both parties have pursued ambitious aims with limited force, committing the countrys military frequently yet often hesitantly, with inconsistent justification. These ventures have produced strategic confusion, unplanned entanglements, and indecisive results. This collection of essays by Richard K. Betts, a leading international politics scholar, investigates the use of American force since the end of the Cold War, suggesting guidelines for making it more selective and successful. Betts brings his extensive knowledge of twentieth century American diplomatic and military history to bear on the full range of theory and practice in national security, surveying the Cold War roots of recent initiatives and arguing that U.S. policy has always been more unilateral than liberal ...
News breaks this morning that the NSA has the ability to monitor 75% of the nations internet traffic at once. They can watch what 75% of Americans are doing at any one time online. Think on that for a moment.. We have already learned that they can monitor your cell phone. They can get access to your individual online browsing history via your internet service provider, and read your emails. Now we learn that they can watch over three-quarters of the nations internet traffic at the drop of a hat.. This has gone far beyond national security.. On Coffee & Markets yesterday Congressman Bob Goodlatte, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, said it is time for more transparency of the NSAs monitoring efforts and called for better oversight of these programs. Both of those suggestions are great first steps to reining in the NSA, but there is more that needs to be done.. In the name of national security, has become the most overused and hollow phrase in Washington. It seems any activity can be ...
National security is one of many fields where public officials offer imprecise probability assessments when evaluating high-stakes decisions. This practice is often justified with arguments about how quantifying subjective judgments would bias analysts and decision makers toward overconfident action. We translate these arguments into testable hypotheses, and evaluate their validity through survey experiments involving national security professionals.

What would the majority of Americans prefer: Allow wiretaps, the ability to trace financial transactions, intercept and study incoming and outgoing foreign phone calls, strict enforcement of the Patriot Act and other security measures designed to protect Americans from deadly terrorist actions, or severely weaken our countrys security policies and consequently increase the possibilities of deadly initiatives against U.S. citizens?. If nine or 10 large airliners had been blown out of the air over the Atlantic Ocean, would those opposed to most all of the Bush administrations actions - actions designed to try to safeguard citizens of this country against terrorism - have said it was unfortunate but this is the price a country and its citizens must pay if we are to preserve the civil liberties guaranteed to those living in the United States?. What is more important to people thinking along these lines: Foiling a plan that could have resulted in the death of 1,500 to 2,000 airline passengers, or ...

Whereas private delivery companies electronically track packages, the US Postal Service (USPS) has yet to institute similar safeguards. This national security gap has not been closed despite legislation. Fifteen percent of packages entering America from China and 40 percent globally - millions each day - are not tracked. The Trump administration sanctioned Chinese nationals involved in shipping narcotics and ordered all carriers to search for deliveries of fentanyl from China. Bureaucratic turf wars complicate policy reform. For example, CBP officials clashed with the USPS over legislation requiring vetting that the USPS argued would slow mail delivery, negatively impacting commerce.. In 2018, Congress passed the Synthetics Trafficking and Overdose Prevention (STOP) Act and President Trump signed it into law. It required the USPS to obtain advance electronic data on 70 percent of all packages mailed from abroad and 100 percent on those mailed from China by the end of 2018. The USPS has yet to ...

In visual search tasks, relative proportions of target-present and target-absent trials have important effects on miss rates and search termination time (target-absent reaction times). Miss rates increase as target prevalence decreases (Wolfe, Horowitz, & Kenner, 2005). This phenomenon is called prevalence effect. Wolfe and Van Wert propose that target prevalence affects the observers criteria and the quitting threshold (Wolfe & Van Wert, 2010). The observers criteria govern decisions about individual items during search, while the quitting threshold is related to search termination time. Wolfe and Van Wert suggest that both of these will influence miss rates. Although prevalence effect is observed in vision, there are no studies in other sensory modalities. In this study, we tested whether or not there was the prevalence effect on haptic search and examined the cause of prevalence effect. To compare the prevalence effect on haptic search with visual search, we conducted haptic search tasks ...

Information security cannot be effectively managed unless secure methods and standards are integrated into all phases of the information security life cycle. And, although the international community has been aggressively engaged in developing security standards for network and information security worldwide, there are few textbooks available that provide clear guidance on how to properly apply the new standards in conducting security audits and creating risk-driven information security programs. An authoritative and practical classroom resource, Information Security Management: Concepts and Practice provides a general overview of security auditing before examining the various elements of the information security life cycle. It explains the ISO 17799 standard and walks readers through the steps of conducting a nominal security audit that conforms to the standard. The text also provides detailed guidance for conducting an in-depth technical security audit leading to certification against the ...

The Bolivian government confirmed yesterday that it would use Cuban technology to control its border crossings.. The Andean state signed an agreement with Cuban company Development and Application of Technology and Systems (Datys) to put in place biometric technology that will help identify and track everyone who crosses its borders.. In an event organised at the Government Palace President Evo Morales said the system would be used to register biometric information for everyone entering or exiting the country that would be checked against a list of criminal suspects.. The problems we have encountered along our borders mean that we have to think more about the security of our country and our State, through migration, exits and entries. Technicians have told me that from now on people who enter the country will be registered and their movements inside Bolivia will be controlled, said Morales.. At this point it is not so hard to equip ourselves with technology, what is difficult is to change the ...
The Boston Marathon bombings that shocked the world also shook communities that host entertainment venues, seeing firsthand as they did how easy it was to bring explosives into a crowd - and set them off. Since the April 15 attack, the National Football League has banned a number of carry-in items from all its arenas, including Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, offering up a new, strict policy that allows fans to bring belongings in small, clear plastic bags only. Managers of other performance and sports venues south of Boston are also taking a hard look at their policies, with some intent on making changes to improve security, and others saying their restrictions are already stringent.

El Al Airlines is headquartered in Israel. The last hijacking occurred on July 23, 1968,[25] and no plane departing Ben Gurion Airport, just outside Tel Aviv, has ever been hijacked.[26]. It was in 1972 that terrorists from the Japanese Red Army launched an attack that led to the deaths of at least 24 people at Ben Gurion. Since then, security at the airport relies on a number of fundamentals, including a heavy focus on what Raphael Ron, former director of security at Ben Gurion, terms the human factor, which may be generalized as the inescapable fact that terrorist attacks are carried out by people who can be found and stopped by an effective security methodology.[27]. On December 27, 1985, terrorists simultaneously attacked El Al ticket counters at the Rome, Italy and Vienna, Austria airports using machine guns and hand grenades. Nineteen civilians were killed and many wounded. In response, Israel developed further methods to stop such massacres and drastically improved security measures ...

The hyper-secretive US National Security Agency - the governments eavesdropping arm - appears to be having its patent applications increasingly blocked by the Pentagon. And the grounds for this are for reasons of national security, reveals information obtained under a freedom of information request.. Most Western governments can prevent the granting (and therefore publishing) of patents on inventions deemed to contain sensitive information of use to an enemy or terrorists. They do so by issuing a secrecy order barring publication and even discussion of certain inventions.. Experts at the US Patent and Trademark Office perform an initial security screening of all patent applications and then army, air force and navy staff at the Pentagons Defense Technology Security Administration (DTSA) makes the final decision on what is classified and what is not.. Now figures obtained from the USPTO under a freedom of information request by the Federation of American Scientists show that the NSA had nine of ...

Management requires coordinated responses, across many disciplines and nations, and the capacity to muster proper national and global public health education, infrastructure, and prevention measures. Unfortunately, increasing numbers of nations are ruled by autocratic regimes which have characteristically failed to adopt investments in public health infrastructure, education, and prevention measures to keep pace with ...
Continuation of Sudan Emergency On November 3, 1997, by Executive Order 13067, the President declared a national emergency with respect to Sudan pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States constituted by the actions and policies of the Government of Sudan, including continuing concern about its record on terrorism and the prevalence of human rights viola-tions, including slavery, restrictions on religious freedom, and restrictions on political freedom. Because the actions and policies of the Government of Sudan continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, the national emergency declared on November 3, 1997, and the measures adopted on that date to deal with that emergency must continue in effect beyond November 3, 2001. Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the ...
As international attention remains focused on the fighting in Syria, Turkeys military has been fighting lethal battles on its southern border with the Kurdistans Workers Party (PKK), which has waged a bloody war against Turkey for almost three decades. Just last week, nine people were killed when a car packed with explosives blew up close to a police station in Gaziantep, a city around 30 miles from the Syrian border. In response, the National Security Council (MGK) convened yesterday to discuss the recent PKK attacks and issued a statement vowing to avert the risks to its national security emanating from the violence in Syria.

The USA regards outer space as a top national security interest to which its military power should be extended by, for example, the possible deployment of non-nuclear space-based weaponry.13 Especially since the terrorist attacks in New York on 11. September 2001, resulting in the War on Terror, policies concerning space-based weapons have again been placed on the military agenda of the USA.14. As Venet15 points out, outer space activities have a clear political dimension. During the Cold War space activities were intrinsically linked to the political objectives, priorities and national security concerns of the two superpowers, the USA and the Soviet Union.16 After the Cold War the political relevance and benefits of space continued to be recognised by states not only as a foreign policy tool to affirm their sovereignty17 and increase their power on the international level, but also to solve domestic and transnational problems.18. In view of the recent emergence of new major space powers, such ...
was formed in 1984 to seperate intelligence gathering from law enforcement after it was revealed that the RCMP had carried out violent and illegal campaigns against social movements in the 1970s. Unlike the police, CSIS agents have no powers to arrest; they gather & analyze intelligence and share this with government and police agencies. Like police, however, CSIS may conduct surveillance, recruit informants and infiltrate agents into groups.. 2) RCMP VISU- the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are a national police force and are the main agency responsible for security during the 2010 Olympics. To carry this out, they have organized the Vancouver 2010 Integrated Security Unit (VISU), which coordinates the security activities of CSIS, the Canadian Forces, police, border control, coast guard, and other emergency services. The RCMP also has its own intelligence department (National Security Criminal Investigations) and is the lead agency for the Integrated National Security Enforcement Teams (INSET), ...

Ill speak to anybody, Trump said at the time.. Still, McCain emphasized during the interview that he backs Trumps recent foreign policy decisions, specifically the missile strike in Syria. The strike followed American intelligence reports that the Syrian regime of President Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons at Idlib.. When the president does his job such as the cruise missile strike, such as selecting a national security team that is the strongest that Ive seen, such as many of the actual actions he has taken, I will be strongly supportive, McCain said.. The White House has also taken criticism for inviting Rodrigo Duterte, president of the Philippines, for a meeting. This comes despite the fact that many international observers have complained about his abuse of human rights.. A senior administration official told CNN that human rights issues wont prevent Trump from defending the national security interests of the United States..

At the very beginning of 2002 (see National Security Archive EBB No. 326) the American distaste for disarmament measures was apparent in the reception that chief United Nations (UN) weapons inspector Hans Blix received when he visited Washington early in the new year. During 2001 Secretary Powell had promoted smart sanctions to encourage Iraqi disarmament but the events of 9/11 had effectively killed that policy. Now a succession of Bush administration officials voiced doubts or made veiled threats. Colin Powell expected Iraq would never comply with UN measures while his undersecretary for arms control, John Bolton, remarked that any UN effort would need the help of the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council--of whom the U.S. was one. National security adviser Condoleezza Rice told Blix of her fears Saddam Hussein would use weapons of mass destruction (WMD) or give them to terrorists. Undersecretary of Defense Douglas Feith worried that UN inspectors visiting Iraq would ...
By Ali AlAhmed. August 13, 2017. Washington DC - Leaked emails showing millions in cash the U.A.E. government paid to the Washington-based Middle East Institute, exposes the vulnerability of United States security regime, and seriously questions the organizations credibility and its analysis.. The payment of $20 million was given to MEI in installments from 2016 and through this year from U.A.E. strongman, Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, leaked emails sent to the Global Leaks to the Institute for Gulf Affairs show.. Emails between U.A.E ambassador Yousef Al Otaiba and Richard Clarke the chairman of MEI and the former counter terrorism czar under the Bush administration showed the money came from the highest authority in the U.A.E. bin Zayed, Abu Dhabis crown prince and U.A.E. leading de- facto ruler.. Clarkes emails from May 17, 2016 show he accepted an invitation for a private fully-paid two-day gathering in Abu Dhabi that focuses on themes of global significance, said Khaldoon Al ...
Testimony by Eric Reeves, Sudan Adviser to the Olympic Dream for Darfur CampaignChairman Tierney and other distinguished Members of this Subcommittee:. As human security in Darfur and eastern Chad continues to deteriorate; as 4.5 million conflict-affected human beings face ongoing threats of violence, malnutrition, and disease; and as the worlds largest and most endangered humanitarian operation continues its critical work amidst intolerable levels of insecurity, we need to be asking with all possible urgency why there is no meaningful protection on the ground for these acutely vulnerable populations. Why is it that in the face of obdurate defiance by the National Islamic Front (National Congress Party) regime in Khartoum, the international community continues to accept a weak, demoralized, and crumbling African Union observer mission as the only source of civilian and humanitarian protection for Darfur? How can it be that as this brutalized region enters a fifth year of genocidal ...
The National Nuclear Security Administration on Friday reaffirmed its January decision to pick Consolidated Nuclear Security LLC to manage and operate the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge and Pantex Plant near Amarillo, Texas.. That earlier decision, announced almost 10 months ago, had been challenged in two rounds of bid protests. Those protests delayed the transition to a new contractor, and it wasnt clear Friday if the NNSAs new decision might also be challenged.. The five-year extendable contract, which could be worth up to $22.8 billion over 10 years, includes project management of the Uranium Processing Facility at Y-12 and an unexercised option for Savannah River Tritium Operations at the Savannah River Site near Aiken, S.C.. Our nuclear production capabilities are critical to our national security, and CNS represents the best value to the government as evidenced by its superior technical and management approach and its lower evaluated cost, NNSA Acting Administrator Bruce ...

March 26, 2017. Seventy years! As I was sorting through papers, correspondence, news clippings and records, I realized that nuclear bomb and nuclear power development occurred within my lifetime. It was July 1945 when Trinity, the first atomic bomb, was detonated at the nuclear site in Alamogordo, New Mexico, followed the next month with a uranium bomb dropped on Hiroshima, and a hydrogen bomb on Nagasaki. At least 129,000 men, women and children were immediately killed.. ...

Program Justification. Demand reduction efforts aim to reduce the use and abuse of illicit drugs worldwide. The need for demand reduction is reflected in escalating drug use that takes a devastating toll on the health, welfare, security, and economic stability of all countries. Recognizing this threat, a key objective of the National Security Presidential Directive (NSPD # 25) on International Drug Control Policy urges the Secretary of State to expand U.S. international demand reduction assistance and information sharing programs in key source and transit countries. As opposed to drug production and trafficking, the NSPD addresses rising global demand for drugs as the principal narcotics-related threat to the U.S. As outlined in the NSPD, drug trafficking organizations and their linkages to international terrorist groups also constitute a serious threat to U.S. national security by generating money that that increasingly threatens global peace and stability. Demand reduction assistance has ...

John Yoo, the Justice Departments (DOJ) Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) deputy assistant attorney general, sends a classified memo to Attorney General John Ashcroft justifying warrantless surveillance of US persons. The National Security Agency (NSA)s domestic surveillance authorized by President Bush (see October 4, 2001, Early 2002, and December 15, 2005) will come to be publicly referred to as the Presidents Surveillance Program (PSP). This is not the first Yoo memo supporting warrantless surveillance (see September 25, 2001), but a 2009 report on the PSP jointly issued by the inspectors general (IGs) of the Department of Defense (DOD), DOJ, CIA, National Security Agency (NSA), and Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) will refer to it as [t]he first OLC opinion directly supporting the legality of the PSP. The IGs report will quote from and comment on the memo, noting that deficiencies in Yoos memorandum identified by his successors in the Office of Legal Counsel and ...
Cairos national security prosecutor on July 4 charged at least eight journalists with spreading false news and added their cases to a larger case of individuals, including other journalists, academics, and politicians, facing the same accusation, according to local press freedom groups, including The Arab Network of Human Rights Information (ANHRI), Freedom of Thought and Expression (AFTE), and the independent news website Mada Masr. The journalists will all remain in government detention pending the national security prosecutors decision to conclude the investigation by either releasing them or sending their cases to trial, according to the same reports.. Just when you think Egyptian authorities cannot make a greater mockery of justice, they find a way, said CPJs Middle East and North Africa Coordinator Sherif Mansour. These false news charges are merely a tactic to justify the arbitrary detention of journalists who should not have been arrested in the first place.. The eight journalists ...

The investor protection rationale would be limited to rules on disclosure about the value of investments or rules aimed at manipulative trading schemes. With this limitation, investor protection actually doesnt apply in many contexts. In the context of proxy access, that means the SEC could take into account the possibility of fraud in the rules requirements on nominee disclosure for example. Minimization of principal-agent costs doesnt however fit within the investor protection principle taken in light of its historical meaning.. The investor protection principle does not apply to the Commissions decision to make the proxy access rule mandatory rather than opt-out or opt-in, which was the issue at the heart of the proxy access challenge. (One reader comments that the Dodd-Frank Act proxy access section specifically references investor protection. It does not amend the NSMIA however, so I dont buy his argument that the DFA language sets the other principles aside or changes the meaning of ...
