Let's hope they are better at network defense than they are at setting up health care websites.

Cybersecurity a joke
cookiejar   11/20/2013 11:43:20 AM

The whole cybersecurity issue is a bad joke. 

On the one hand, the government wants to keep data and infrastructure secure from hackers, be they employed by corporations or other governments or simply playing at home. 

On the other hand, the largest, most sophisticated hacker is the government itself who also insists on convenient back doors in all communication systems, ready for massive exploitation.  There are so many government employees and contractors that inevitably a significant number will go rouge.

You can't have your cake and eat it.  

It does not compute.

We Call It Collaboration

Thanks for this article.  Well, I have a lot to say on this topic, but since this is not a book novel.  I will try to keep it short.  We all know that cybersecurity is a major problem in this country and will continue to be a problem because the average American really do not know how to use technology effectively.  I wonder why many of these department leaders have not completed a management training course? Effective management is about vision.  You mean to tell me that the President of the US has to provide a White House Executive Order on Cybersecurity (WHEOC)  to tell departments that they need to work together to provide processes and solutions to address future attacks?  The problem is beyond cybersecruity, the problem appears to be department management.   The key to solving cybersecurity is working together... collaboration.

Is it enough? who knows. It is surely a step in the right direction though. Sharing information has proven time and time again to be beneficial in terms of security. Parts Search

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
