Researchers at NIST have developed a mathematical formula that, computer simulations suggest, could help 5G and other wireless networks select and share communications frequencies about 5,000 times more efficiently than trial-and-error methods.
Though anticipating and preparing for the future is always smart business, there are some industries which take it a step beyond the norm. In cybersecurity, the concept of “future proofing” is essentially the modus operandi everyone adheres to considering just how quickly a massive breach can turn the tide on our collective defenses. By their very nature, security professionals are constantly preparing to head off new threats by diagnosing them and creating an active defense model that makes it nearly impossible - and absurdly expensive - for hackers to get at their data.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, more people than ever are working remotely. Because of this recent and rapid transition, users are accessing corporate resources from their homes and generating unprecedented amounts of network traffic. IT departments face increased pressure to ensure business continuity by providing remote users with access to essential corporate applications and services through Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), which are designed to provide access to private networks through shared or public networks.
For many people, their mobile device, serves as their primary computer in day-to-day life. Modern mobile devices offer a rich, flexible set of features and allow users to add new features just by downloading applications.
When it involves the safety of residents, data needs to be reliable and easily accessed – which is where a 0G network comes in. IoT connectivity options like 0G provide a cost-efficient, low-power and user-friendly experience, with simple integration for public safety officials looking to stay up-to-date and secure. Here are some ways IoT devices running on a 0G network can be used to aid officials, allowing for better public safety.
Experts from The Chertoff Group, a global security advisory firm that enables clients to navigate changes in security risk, technology and policy, developed a list of the biggest cyber threats to watch out for in 2019.
The Amphion Forum (www.amphionforum.com) is taking place 28 March in Munich, and will feature a wide variety of experts in securing the "Internet of Things", or any device that connects to the internet but is not a PC.
This month in Security magazine, we highlight COVID-19 and infosec's response. How has the sudden shift to remote work changed the roles of CISOs and security teams? Also this month, we profile Justin Dolly, CSO at Sauce Labs, his view on infosec and building security teams. In addition, security experts discuss continuous monitoring, radicalism, quantum technology, endpoint security and more.
