  • Facebook is launching a social network for cyber security professionals to share information about threats that could lead to cyber attacks, as the US government and companies search for new ways to co-ordinate their defences.

    The world’s largest social network is stepping up its work in cyber security by teaming with other technology companies including Yahoo and online scrapbooking site Pinterest. The platform will enable companies to share clues about how hackers are behaving in the hope of preventing security breaches.

    As cyber attacks hit companies from Sony Pictures to health insurer Anthem, the private and public sector are under pressure to work together to understand their adversaries. Hackers join forces and share tips to break into networks but so far, communication about cyber defence has often been haphazard.

    Mark Hammel, Facebook’s manager of threat infrastructure, said ThreatExchange had been developed from a system that Facebook was already using internally to make it easier to catalogue threats to the site in real time.

    Facebook’s decision to share the tool comes at a time when the company is trying to broaden its appeal beyond social interactions with friends and family and make the product a tool that is useful in the workplace. The company is also trying out a site and app called Facebook at Work, designed to facilitate internal collaboration between colleagues.

    Mr Hammel said Facebook would give the cyber security service away for free, unlike ...

    Regarded as one of the best technical Windows internet security suites for PC and laptop, and Total Security 2015 lives up to that rep.

    Bitdefender is widely regarded as one of the best technical Windows internet security suites. Its Total Security product offers a very good range of the features you rightly expect in a security suite. The 2015 version aims to make life even easier for customers by introducing Profiles, which adapt the software for particular tasks, like playing games, watching movies or general office work. Also see: Best internet security software 2014.

    After installation, you’re presented with a very Windows 8-looking tiled interface. Rather than having a lot of tiles slide awkwardly through the Bitdefender window, as in the 2014 version, here there are three large tiles and four subsidiary ones, giving quick and easy access to all the program’s key functions.

    The modules provided by Bitdefender Total Security 2015 cover AV, anti-malware and anti-spam, tune-up, online banking protection, a 2-way firewall, parental control, online backup and anti-theft provision.

    Online backup, which Bitdefender Total Security 2015 refers to as Safebox, is handled from the My Bitdefender online site, which is unusual – it’s more usually set up and managed locally.

    It works by syncing the files and folders you select with off-site storage and offers 2 GB of space. This is paltry in a Bitdefender Total Security 2015 package catering for three PCs, though you...

    This year’s Lemelson-MIT Prize winner discusses grassroots ways for boosting the number of women in technology and business.

    I have a confession to make: I’ve been living under a rock.

    I’ve actually been busy under here — running a bioengineering lab at MIT, starting companies, teaching, consulting, being a mom. But I’ve been so focused on keeping all the balls in the air that, until recently, I hadn’t noticed that women typically aren’t the ones starting technology companies.

    To be fair, I had recognized that:

    • Girls choose engineering less often and drop out of engineering disproportionately (the so-called “leaky pipeline”). • The percentage of women computer science majors peaked 30 years ago. • The higher I climb, the fewer other women there are at the table with me.

    I’ve also seen progress in gender equity in higher education. I just didn’t realize until recently that the technology industry is light years behind.

    In case you’ve also been under a rock, here are some numbers that I found truly astonishing. Women lead only 3 percent of tech startups, account for only 4 percent of the senior venture partners funding such startups and represent only 5 percent of the founders, advisors and directors at MIT technology spinoffs.

    Are you as shocked as I was? What if I tell you that more than 50 percent of students in some MIT undergraduate science majors are women — and that’s been the case for almost 20 years? Where do these talented women ...

    The newest idea in home automation is letting your thermostat track your smartphone, and only blast the air conditioner when you're at home. WSJ Personal Tech Columnist Geoffrey A. Fowler put Honeywell's new Lyric thermostat to the test.

    When it's hotter than Hades outside, wouldn't it be nice if your air conditioner knew you were coming home and cooled things down inside?

    That's the idea behind two new "smart" climate-control systems, the $279 Honeywell Lyric thermostat and the $279 Aros window air conditioner made by Quirky and General Electric. GE -0.56% They blast the AC when you're at home, and not when you're out.

    Welcome to the era where your AC keeps tabs on you. These Internet-connected appliances take commands from apps and work by tracking the location of every smartphone in your household—yours, your spouse's, and Grandma's too. (In a pinch, you can still control them manually.)

    I installed Lyric and Aros in my San Francisco home, and in two friends' homes in warmer Bay Area climes. We found both devices can go a long way toward liberating you from fiddling with thermostat dials, and possibly saving energy. But neither are quite smart or simple enough to just set and forget.

    These appliances are attempts at reinvention by Honeywell and GE, two of the biggest brands in climate control, now under attack from Silicon Valley. Nest Labs raised the bar in two ways when it launched its first consumer-installed "smart" thermostat in 2011: First...

    The White House issued a warning last week: Big data may be harmful to our privacy.

    Give the White House credit. It is trying to keep an important issue before the eyes of the public. OK, this one does not deal with Benghazi or Obamacare. But in the long term, it will probably be even more important. The topic is big data.

    The White House issued two well-thought out reports last week, one on the ethical ramifications and another on the technical aspects of big data in our lives. The topic did not gather a lot of press coverage, probably because it is not as sexy as other issues. In addition, it did not draw a lot of attention. It is one of those issues that simmers, rather than boils.

    Big data is the gathering of massive amounts of information from all kinds of sources, from bridge crossings to online purchases to Internet searches to tweets and phone calls to bank records. You name it. With the new power of computers, all of those data points can be quickly analyzed and directed to detect patterns. The problem is that some of these patterns tell too much about our personal lives and leave us open to exploitation.

    The analysts may be the National Security Agency or your friendly broadband company. It can even be that ice cream store down the street. The records of how many raspberry ice cream cones you bought or which movies you watched on cable are being recorded and analyzed. The NSA wants to predict the likelihood of terrorists living next store. The grocery store want...

  • Philosophie der Corliss Review Steinbeis Technology Group

    Communication, Communication Design

    Umgesetzte, marktorientierte Innovationen wie auch erfolgreiche Produkte und Dienstleistungen sichern in einem zunehmend globalisierten und konkurrierenden wirtschaftlichen Umfeld unternehmerischen Erfolg. Erfolgreich zu sein setzt voraus, Erfahrung mit aktuellem Fachwissen situativ zu verknüpfen und den Mut zu haben, Neues und oft Unkonventionelles anzugehen aber auch Bewährtes weiterhin realisieren zu können. Das praxisorientierte, berufsbegleitende Projekt-Kompetenz-Studium der Steinbeis-Hochschule forciert einen Wissenstransfer, der dieses konkrete Fachwissen vermittelt und die erfolgreiche Arbeit von Nachwuchs-, Fach- und Führungskräften unterstützt.

    Lebenslanges und berufsbegleitendes Lernen ist an der Steinbeis-Hochschule zentraler Aspekt unseres Konzepts. Dabei gilt es einerseits inhaltliche und organisatorische Anforderungen von Unternehmen und andererseits die Vereinbarkeit von Bildung und Beruf zu berücksichtigen.

    Über 100 Transfer-Institute im Steinbeis-Verbund aus rund 800 Steinbeis-Unternehmen bieten ein breites Spektrum an maßgeschneiderten, spezialisierten Studien- und Lehrgängen zur praxisnahen Qualifizierung von Fach- und Führungskräften an. Im Mittelpunkt unserer Philosophie steht die Organisation der Institute als "Unternehmen im Unternehmen Hochschule", die eigenverantwortlich agieren. Als Hochschule finanzieren wir uns über Projekt- und Studiengebühren und beanspruchen keine staatlichen Subventionen.
