This book explores the viability of future UK-EU internal security arrangements in light of Brexit, including their impact on the UK´s and the EU´s security and international standings. The authors discuss on-going negotiations and address the main political and legal concerns of possible future arrangements. As the UK prepares to leave the EU, the country is faced with having to develop new cooperation models with its neighbours to fight growing transnational security threats, as well as new strategies to maintain its leading role as an international security actor. In exploring these issues, the book aims to contribute to the general knowledge on the risks and opportunities associated with the disentanglement of the UK from European internal security cooperation; to shed more light on the debates surrounding the negotiations; and to inform the policy discussions that form the basis of proposed cooperation models and that are likely to significantly shape the future UK-EU security relationship.
Insufficient security is careless, too much security is inefficient. Recent surveys point out that the fear of cyber attacks is one of the three biggest business risks. Cloud, privacy protection, mobility or the internet of things are important drivers for pushing changes in the field of IT Security in industrial environments. Without IT Security the Industrial Internet of Things will not be accepted. The importance of protection concepts is growing with increasing external attacks. Operators of critical infrastructure have to maintain minimum standards of IT Security and to protect their installations against cyber-attacks. Effective protection concepts can only be implemented with a range of organizational and technical measures. Product suppliers, system integrators, and operators have to work together to deploy holistic protection solutions. The series of standards IEC 62443 is focused on the support of holistic solutions for the protection of industrial systems and addresses all involved stakeholders. Correspondingly IEC 62443 is perceived as complex. This guideline has the aim to simplify the approach to the deployment of protection concepts by giving an overview about IEC 62443, summarizing the ideas and concepts, and illustrating practical solutions.
In this beautiful collection of memories and reflections, Tom Brokaw speaks of growing up in the American heartland and of the people, the culture, and the values that have shaped his life. He describes his childhood and youth in South Dakota from 1940 to 1960 and his parents´ early lives during the ´20s and ´30s. Brokaw also reflects on the American experience, as he has lived and observed it, during the central decades of the 20th century. Born near Bristol, South Dakota, in 1940, Tom loved to talk from an early age. His first public performance was at the age of four: ´´My father stood at the back of the hall and held up a silver dollar. If he could hear my every word, he said, I would get that silver dollar.´´ After the war, the family moved to Pickstown, a new town built on the Missouri River to house workers constructing the Fort Randall Dam. The move to Pickstown became a pivotal decision in the Brokaws´ lives, as the family began to live out the American dream of community, relative economic security, middle-class pleasures, and, for the Brokaw sons, a good education, American Legion baseball teams in the summer, and a boy´s life outdoors. When Tom was 15, the Brokaws moved to Yankton, and there two events occurred that were to shape Tom Brokaw´s life: To earn money after school, and influenced by his mother´s daily devotion to the Today show with Dave Garroway and The Huntley-Brinckley Report, Brokaw got a job at the local radio station, spinning the new rock-n-roll records; and he met Meredith Auld, a classmate at Yankton High, who would eventually become his wife. As he describes his pilgrimage, Brokaw also reflects on what brought him and so many Americans to lead lives that are a long way from home, yet are forever affected by it. 1. Language: English.

A growing chorus of prominent voices in Congress and elsewhere are calling for the expansion of our Social Security system - people who know that Social Security will not ´´go broke´´ and does not add a penny to the national debt. Social Security Works! will amplify these voices and offer a powerful antidote to the three-decade-long, billionaire-funded campaign to make us believe that this vital institution is destined to collapse. It isn´t. From the Silent Generation to Baby Boomers, from Generation X to Millennials and Generation Z, we all have a stake in understanding the real story about Social Security. Critical to addressing the looming retirement crisis that will affect two-thirds of today´s workers, Social Security is a powerful program that can help stop the collapse of the middle class, lessen the pressure squeezing families from all directions, and help end the upward redistribution of wealth that has resulted in perilous levels of inequality. All Americans deserve to have dignified retirement years as well as an umbrella to protect them and their families in the event of disability or premature death. Sure to be a game-changer, Social Security Works! cogently presents the issues and sets forth both an agenda and a political strategy that will benefit us all. At stake are our values and the kind of country we want for ourselves and for those that follow.
