New Green Card

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has redesigned the Permanent Resident Card - commonly known as the "Green Card" - to incorporate several major new security features.

They've begun issuing all Green Cards in the new format. The redesign is the latest advance in the Immigration Department's ongoing efforts to deter immigration fraud, that officials say will better serve law enforcement, employers, and immigrants.

Among the benefits of the new technology: Secure optical media will store biometrics for rapid, reliable identification of the card holder. Holographic images, laser engraved fingerprints, and high resolution micro-images will make the card nearly impossible to reproduce. Additionally, Radio Frequency Identification capabilities will allow Customs officers at ports of entry to read the card from a distance and compare it immediately to file data.

DHS Info Sharing

Many say for the government to secure their own networks, it must work more closely with the private sector.

The Homeland Security Department, and other agencies, are now testing out just how that approach might work. That Department is in the middle of several pilot programs to improve how the government and industry share information related to cyber threats.

One goal is to make the sharing of classified information easier, such as an expansion of the post-9/11 Network Fusion Centers used in every state.

Money Mules Targeted

Cyber criminals know how to steal online funds, but the criminals who know how to convert those funds into cash are now being targeted specifically by the FBI.

Agency officials say they're targeting - what they call - the "money mules" who receive the transfers of stolen funds into their bank accounts. They then make the transaction appear legitimate, sending the money to associates in other countries.

The FBI hopes to raise public awareness and dissuade people from becoming mules. The FBI hopes to raise public awareness and dissuade people from becoming mules.
