SECURUS GLOBAL IN THE PRESS:

Reseller’s role in securing customer networks against ‘social’ intruders.
Joel Simon was scanning for news of journalists under fire when he was drawn to a suspicious email by an odd misspelling of a colleague’s name.
Simon is the executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalists, which reveals abuses against the Fourth Estate.
It came from “Rony Kevin”, a name similar to Rony Koven, who works for the World Press Freedom Committee, a CPJ partner. The subject line read: ‘Fw: Journalists arrested in Gambia’ and had a message body cut and pasted from press freedom group, Article 19.
CPJ internet advocacy coordinator Danny O’Brien says it had a password-protected zip attachment but CPJ employees are “extremely cautious about opening strange attachments”.
