SEREbox.com, the original monthly subscription box with an emergency preparedness theme, celebrates its successful 1st year anniversary on February 20th, 2015

Atlanta, GA, February 02, 2015 — /EPR DEFENSE NEWS/ — SEREbox.com was the first monthly subscription box service geared towards emergency preparedness and survival gear planning available on the internet or elsewhere. SEREbox.com combines a comprehensive and innovative line of emergency planning products with an educational aspect that cannot be found anywhere else. Each month has a theme (ie: Fire, Water, Food, Protection, and etc.). They strive to find unique items that are quality made in the USA, highly functional, and extremely durable. Food is always the most popular and important item to have in a cache of emergency supplies. Therefore, special attention was paid to make sure the entire long term shelf stable food line is the best in the business. They succeeded. Their food line is unmatched because it is great tasting, fast cooking, low in sodium, and highly nutritious. Even gluten free and other specialty diet options are available to all customers.

The website has proven to be of tremendous value to families and individuals on their search for independence and freedom from reliance on other people or the government in case of any emergency or survival scenario. “This is a cutting edge Internet site far superior to anything in the marketplace,” said Ryan Bowersox, Co-Founder of SEREbox.com. “We have received a humbling amount of compliments on the concept and product itself. We expect tremendous sales growth in year two through our newly designed, convenient, and user-friendly website.”

“The response from all our customers has been overwhelmingly positive. Companies talk all the time about customer service and it seems to be just lip service. Customer service is a lost art. We really strive to make each customer happy. We have never put turning a profit ahead of doing the right thing for our customers. We have countless testimonials on our website about how we are succeeding in all our goals. We are just so pleased that our little idea has been of such use to people, and it’s so exciting. We can’t wait to see what year two and beyond brings.” said Scott Setter, President.

SEREbox.com has grown by leaps and bounds because of the great value it offers its customers. The company has a very intelligent and hardworking team of people in the greater Atlanta area. The concept and website have been featured in many publications, most notably the Winter 2014 version of “Survivor’s Edge” Magazine. The company’s website at www.SEREbox.com contains additional information on the program and how to sign up.

New Canadian Security Company Fighting Worldwide Corporate Espionage and Advanced Attackers

Information theft, or hacking, is extremely common in the business world. Companies with the most valuable information are under constant attack and need of sophisticated defense team. The Arc4dia team of experts has years of practical experience in the field of high-level cyber attacks and can help businesses to protect their privacy.

Snow Cover is the main defense service offered by Arc4dia. It is the first cyber security monitoring service truly aimed at advanced persistent attacks. Unlike the plethora of other services claiming to protect organizations against advanced persistent threats (APTs) while relying on the same technologies and people behind Anti-Virus, Arc4dia defense service is built from the ground up to provide a real fight against the advanced attackers using strategic and transparent techniques.

For a company with sensitive information, installing security software is not enough. Hackers constantly evolve, using new exploits to get past stationary defenses. That means a company’s defense strategy must also evolve in response. “We’ve helped clients to get rid of an attacker they didn’t know they had before we came in. The only hint the client had in a span of three years, was that they started losing critical contracts to a foreign competitor” said Roberge, Arc4dia founder.

For a limited time, Arc4dia offers Early Snow Program as a trial for Snow Cover. ESP is a program aimed to organizations that are likely to be victims of advanced targeted attacks. This program is completely free. The main benefits to the program participants: cutting edge 24/7 surveillance, evolving detection and immediate mitigation of targeted threats, and all this in transparent manner that won’t impact the running of your business.

West Fertilizer Storage Facility Explosion Exposes Alarming Trend in U.S. Chemical Safety and Security

As a result of on-site preliminary assessment performed by global security expert Anyck Turgeon, M-CAT Enterprises (M-CAT) is releasing three informational resources to help raise the understanding and awareness of chemical safety issues: i) a Firestorm interview revealing initial alarming on-site findings ii) a comprehensive article exposing the economics of poor chemical security practices and providing ten easily implemented recommendations iii) link to a live interview on May 29, 2013 to address other security challenges and best practices towards fire avoidance in manufacturing and/or storage facilities containing toxic and explosive chemicals such as fertilizers.

The devastating explosion at a West Texas fertilizer storage facility killing 15 people, injuring more than 200 and leveling surrounding homes and businesses in a four-block radius exposes a chilling trend in the way chemical safety is managed in the United States. According to the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS), chemical incidents have increased by an alarming 400 percent in the United States since 2010. “This is alarming,” says chemical security, safety and fraud expert Turgeon. “And to complicate matters, a disturbing percentage of plant managers and other respondents – nearly 25 percent – are not likely to report an incident out of fear of retaliation. This is happening globally and gets worst in other countries”.

While eyes are on Texas over this large-scale tragedy, governments and energy corporate leaders worldwide must proactively reassess their current production, transportation and safety postures, adopt more collaborative and comprehensive security compliance programs as well as provide training and tools required for staff to complete tasks safely and efficiently.

As one in three plants currently face similar safety issues, you can:

•  Review the interview completed with MCAT’s CEO Anyck Turgeon after she delivered on-site volunteer assistance at http://www.firestorm.com/Blog/west-fertilizer-plant-explosion-raises-chemical-safety-issues.html

•  Read a more comprehensive article exposing the economics of the fertilizer industry and learn ten ways to avoid chemical plant explosions by visiting : Top 10 Ways to Prevent Chemical Plant and Storage Facilities Explosions

•  Join a live webinar on May 29, 2013 hosted by Firestorm CEO Jim Satterfield, at which time Anyck Turgeon will answer questions about the current status of chemical safety in America . Register: http://www.firestorm.com/event/65-webinar-top-10-ways-to-prevent-chemical-plant-and-storage-facilities-explosions-with-anyck-turgeon

It is now time to pay attention and start adopting solutions for such preventable recurrences and silent killers, through contamination of entire communities causing long-term respiratory disease occurrences.

Africa Intelligence Reports

Max Security, a global security consulting firm is now providing Africa Intelligence Reports. The company recently expanded its intelligence gathering operations to Sub-Saharan and southern Africa. “Africa is booming”, explains Africa Intelligence Manager Jay Radzinski, “but emerging business hubs like Kenya, South Africa and Nigeria continue to be marred by terrorism, civil unrest, and other hindrances to business continuity.”

The launch of the Africa regional intelligence package marks the first official expansion of Max Security’s growing intelligence division, after recording initial successes in the Middle East and North Africa regions. Max’s regional intelligence packages provide clients with a turnkey solution for their security information needs, keeping them informed of broad trends affecting business continuity in the long term, while alerting them to immediate threats to their specific interests.

“We provide our clients with deep familiarity of otherwise complex and volatile operating environments.” Says Intelligence Director Dor Raveh. “Clients receive everything from in-depth reports on changing political trends, to tactical alerts warning that the route to the airport has been closed.”

Max’s proven intelligence gathering capabilities stem from its’ analysts’ unrivaled ability to triangulate between a variety of sources, including social media, local media, and ground contacts. The department is comprised of a motivated, energetic mixture of experienced veterans from the Israeli intelligence and Special Ops services and a multi-national array of academics well versed in geopolitics.

“The ability of our fledgling division to meet the challenges posed by the Arab Spring created a whirlwind in the security community,” Says Raveh, “Now, we’re out to give our clients the same solutions to enable smooth business operations in Africa.” Over the past two years, Max’s intelligence branch had become well known in the corporate security community for its ability to separate the essential issues from the non-essential, providing timely, concise updates while never hesitating to give a bottom-line assessment. These aspects, argue intel branch members, are what have caused their clients’ exodus from existing intelligence juggernauts to their young division. “We’ve become the security company that other security professionals come to for help”, explains Raveh.

In addition to intelligence services, Max’s Travel Security department has recently opened its newest regional hub in Lagos Nigeria. From Lagos, Max provides clients with a range of risk-mitigation and travel security solutions ranging from close protection to facility security consulting. “Establishing an operating hub in Lagos complimented our global reach with a local touch,” explains CEO Noam Schiller.

Additional African countries that Max provides Intel for include Ethiopia, Angola, Mozambique, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Guinea, Cameroon and Senegal. To demonstrate the Max advantage, Max Security Intelligence is offering a free trial subscription for their Africa regional package. Subscribers receive daily summaries, bi-weekly strategic reports, special reports, and alerts, provided using proven intelligence gathering techniques adapted to the African continent. Subscribers are also offered tactical monitoring subscriptions to strategic cities across the continent, including Lagos, Nairobi, and Johannesburg.
