Educational Omission
After reviewing your list of schools in the "Survival 101" article (July/August 2007), I noticed you did not include Capella University in the list.

Capella University is

also an NSA Center of Academic Excellence. I only mention this because they deserve to be listed right along with the other schools you mention. If you're going to mention educational opportunities for people to pursue, please show them the entire field to choose from.

Mac-Daddy Encryption
Neil Roiter's article ("Hard Core," July/August) talks about laptop encryption, mentioning several software companies' products and eventually disk encryption embedded on the hard drive itself. Yet in the picture, we see a PowerBook laptop by Apple that has done encryption since the release of OS X 10.3 (Panther, released October 2003), and not a word of it in the text.

OS X can encrypt home folders and can create encrypted containers more easily than most software; also it is native to the operating system.

For a business executive it is a no-brainer to encrypt data. I see this as a major omission in the article.

Julia Allen was incorrectly identified in the article "Stormy Weather" in the July/August issue of Information Security.
