Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY) and Deutsche Telecom (OTCQX: DTEGY)
HP Enterprise Services
Mr. Steve Lazerowich, Director, Cybersecurity Solutioning, HP
Enterprise Services, U.S. Public Sector, told us, "Today, there is
simply no way to provide 100% protection. As events have recently
shown, it's not just the bad guys on the outside trying to gain
access to your information; organizations must also be mindful of the
insider threat. The best approach is defense in depth, or in other
words, a multi-layered approach to protecting systems. It starts at
the outer most perimeter with firewalls and network intrusion
prevention systems. Systems need to be segregated on separate network
segments so that a failure in one area does not expose all systems.
Servers also need their own end point protection including host
intrusion detection, malware protection, data encryption and white

ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY) (ImageWare), a leader in
cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, has
been awarded a $2.2 million contract by the U.S. Department of
Veteran Affairs (VA) to expand its personal identity verification
(PIV) credentialing capabilities.
Under the terms of the agreement, ImageWare will deliver software
licenses during the third quarter of 2013, whereby the company will
receive approximately $1.5 million in revenue. Additionally,
ImageWare will receive service revenue valued at approximately
$650,000 that will be recognized proportionally over the next year.
ImageWare's biometric identity management solution was first
installed with the VA in 2007. The solution provides large-scale,
agency-wide biometric identity and credential management
capabilities, such as biometrically enabled PIV credentials that are
in compliance with U.S. government standards. As part of the system
expansion, the VA will also be adopting ImageWare's patented,
hardware and algorithm independent Biometric Engine(R) 2.0, enabling
the enrollment and management of unlimited population sizes.
"The U.S. Government has confirmed multi-modal biometric identity
management as the only way to move forward as it offers a greater
level of security and reliability," said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO
of ImageWare. "ImageWare's proven track record of government
experience executing best-of-breed patented, fully compliant
biometric solutions will drive the standards for commercial adoption.
We are honored to continue working with the VA and expand our
services in support of their mission. As we look forward, I am
confident we will introduce similar solutions to our global
enterprise customers and solution provider partners."

door speakers as well as audio-enabled patio and standard room
stations to provide up to 15 rooms with AM/FM radio, and playback
from CDs or MP3/phone devices via the 3.5mm audio input jack. Because
it has its own power source, the DMCMP3 can also charge MP3 players
and phones from the power-only USB-A port.
For convenient management, the DMCMP3 offers a five-button interface
with a source select button and CD controls including: play/pause,
fast-forward, rewind and track forward/reverse, with mode and option
selection displayed on the DMC master unit. The DMCMP3's curved edges

Mr. Ryan Skipp, T-Systems International GMBH, Portfolio & Solution
Design - IT, Applications & Portfolio Architecture, told us,
"T-Systems as an Outsourcer has to provide base infrastructure
services which meet the cost and quality expectations that a company
transitioning to outsourced services would expect -- better than they
as an end-user could produce, with better quality, and lower cost! In
order to achieve that, T-Systems was one of the first Outsourcers to
produce a 'Cloud' platform, based on highly shared leveraged
infrastructure, and with a number of pre-defined applications on top
of that. Today we have enhanced that infrastructure, and wrapped the
Cloud functionality into it, all the way up to self-service (to
application level) for our Private Cloud clients. For

2nd Annual Cyber Resilience for National Security
Many advancements have occurred in the landscape of cyber resilience.
However, cyberspace remains a mysterious terrain. A realistic
perspective on unknowns must be established to combat and ward off
the myriad of risks that threaten our national and economic
interests. This event will bring together defense, government and
industry leaders to devote a concentrated focus on breaking down the
latest in policy, information sharing, security technology and
identifiable threats for a cohesive mission strategy that can be
directly applied to cross-agency goals.

PSA Welcomes 3 New Vendor Partners
A message from Craig Patterson,
Director of Vendor Management
There have been some exciting new additions to the PSA line card
recently. Just within the last couple of months, we've added Seneca
(video server and storage solutions), Vunetrix (network health
monitoring solutions) and Vanderbilt (access control). We're always
looking for quality vendor partners who can provide the best
solutions at the best price and provide our line card with the proper
mix of offerings.
To better maximize the business relationship of our key vendor
partners, as well as streamline their respective product offerings,
PSA has continued the process of thoroughly reviewing each of our
vendors to help assure a productive line card going forward. Please
feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments
regarding PSA's move to a leaner and meaner line card.

Developing Uniform IP Communications Standards
The SIA Standards Committee has launched an effort to develop a
standard industry approach for security manufacturers to define
management information bases (MIBs) that contain device attributes
for security equipment communicating over computer networks.
Many IT companies rely upon Simple Network Management Protocol
(SNMP), which actively monitors device status and alerts
administrators to devices (routers, printers, modems) that may
require attention. These devices have common MIBs that contain
attributes relevant for network communication over SNMP.
There is currently no standard MIB guidance for security
manufacturers to incorporate into their network devices, so SIA
Standards intends to develop a set of industry-wide MIBS, which would
increase both the security and the reliability of network-based
An ad-hoc SIA Standards Subcommittee chaired by Ray Coulombe,
managing director of SecuritySpecifiers.com, will begin work on this
project in August.
Learn About Near Field Communications (NFC)
SIA and Security Systems News teamed up to present the latest
installment of their emerging technology webcast series, which
focused on NFC applications. What is NFC? How is it used inside and
outside of security? And how may it be used for security applications
outside of access control down the road?
NFC is one of the latest technologies to influence physical security.
More than 300 million NFC-enabled mobile devices are projected to
sell in 2013 alone. NFC has already been deployed in some
well-publicized pilot programs in the physical security space where
smartphones have been used for access control including college
campuses, hotels and apartment complexes.
