Here are a few recent links of note on cybersecurity and disruptive technology:
- The Cyber Power Index by Booze Allen Hamilton. The G20 are ranked by their potency in cyber, determined by their legal and regulatory framework, economic and social context, technology infrastructure, and industry application. The United States is ranked second with the United Kingdom surprisingly first and China in 13th place. This tool is interactive and, if you disagree with Booze Allen Hamilton’s assessment, you can change the weighting of the determining factors.
- Federal Researchers Push the Limits of Cloud Computing. The results of the 2 year Magellan project, where the DOE”s national labs compared their traditional High-Powered Computing to cloud models, were released last month. Can the national labs use cloud computing to measure the expansion of the universe? Maybe, but not quite yet. We also did some further analysis on Lessons Learned from Magellan.
- Nearly a Third of Americans Now Own an E-Reader or a Tablet. Almost 20% own each. Increasingly mobile is becoming the norm, which means that mobile applications, services, and security need to keep pace and are some of the most pressing topics in information technology.
- Military’s New Plan to Weed Out Counterfeits: Plant DNA. Counterfeit goods are a tremendous concern in military logistics, but serial numbers can be rubbed out and even holograms can be mimicked. Applied DNA Sciences Inc. has just won a contract with the Defense Logistics Agency to try a novel solution – coating electronics with plant DNA markers. Matching the plant DNA would be almost impossible for counterfeiters.
