RESTON, VA (PRWEB) June 7, 2004
Federal Employees News Digest, Inc. (FEND), publisher of some of the most widely read news and information products for the federal workforce, today announced that it has launched a Washington-based daily newswire targeted at homeland security professionals.
The new online wire service, DHS Newswire (http://www.dhsnewswire.com), provides daily homeland security stories and updates from flashpoints at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Congress, GAO, think tanks, government agencies and private industry. The newswireÂs staff monitors scores of government and industry information centers to provide subscribers with concise, focused homeland security news and information.
Designed to inform decision makers from both private industry and government on top stories affecting homeland security, this new subscriber-based service provides the latest breaking news Â as well as ongoing updates on critical issues and events. In succinct, readable form, DHS Newswire keeps readers up to date with the news and intelligence of the day on terrorist threats affecting the United States -- and what appropriate organizations are doing about it.
DHS Newswire coverage is carefully selected every day from a broad spectrum of homeland security issues to give busy readers the right mix of information about the critical events that shape their lives.
"DHS is a huge, complicated department -- the largest one created by the federal government since the New Deal," said Linda Young Gsell, FEND Publisher and President. "But much of the real hands-on responsibility for ensuring homeland security is distributed all across the federal government. ThatÂs why weÂve designed DHS Newswire to track homeland security developments not only at DHS -- but wherever and whenever they happen."
DHS Newswire is staffed by Washington journalists with solid, research-based reporting skills developed covering both the federal government and the private sector. They provide subscribers with latest on important inside moves at DHS and other federal agencies, Congressional activities and pending legislation, important RFPs and awards, the latest security research, homeland security industry developments, cyber security, government spending, and key homeland security happenings from around the country.
The service also runs in-depth features and reports, as well as interviews with some of the nationÂs leading homeland security experts Âboth inside and outside the government.
The service currently features a special question and answer session with Michael Byrne, former director of the DHS Office of National Capital Region Coordination, and now Director of Justice and Public Safety for Microsoft Public Sector. To see it, go to http://www.dhsnewswire.com .
Subscriptions to DHS Newswire are available at http://www.dhsnewswire.com/subscribe . The publisher is currently offering a special charter subscription rate of $195 per year that includes a daily headline news service delivered by e-mail.
