Packet Capture is a Foundational Technology for Cybersecurity
Provided By: Endace   Send Email to POC   View Content   Jan 2023
As distributed applications and cloud services have become commonplace, the increased complexity in network and application architectures has made it challenging for teams to ensure the reliability, performance, and security of enterprise networks. These complex environments open more attack vectors for exploitation while making it difficult or impossible for security teams to quickly determine what has happened in the event of a security incident. This has led to the need for organizations to capture complete information about network activity and provide it to securit ...

U.S. Cyber Command officials anticipate-and are prepared to counter-multiple arguments against its proposal to create a dedicated cyber intelligence center to provide intelligence on international cyber forces. The arguments presented by Air Force Brig. Gen. Matteo Martemucci, Cyber Command's director of intelligence, include the fact that other organizations already provide elements of cyber intelligence, the possibility a new center could pull resources and talent from existing organizations and the idea that the cyber domain is not yet mature enough to warrant such a ...

Unlocking the Power of Unstructured Data
Provided By: MarkLogic   Send Email to POC   View Content   Jan 2023
Governments, industries and individuals alike all report feeling overwhelmed by the rising tide of data. How big is the challenge? One research firm estimated that the volume of data/information "created, captured, copied and consumed worldwide" would reach 97 zettabytes in 2022 (one zettabyte is the equivalent of 1 billion terabytes)-and the figure is projected to almost double, to 180 zettabytes, by 2025. Compounding the problem, most of that growth will be of unstructured data, so-called because it doesn't adhere to structured data models.

Quantum Computing and Its Impact on Cybersecurity
Provided By: AFCEA   Send Email to POC   View Content   Oct 2022
AFCEA International's Homeland Security Committee presents this white paper that offers cautionary alerts on the emerging quantum computing technology, with its ability to solve complex problems beyond the capabilities of the traditional computers. While the quantum research community applauds the accelerated rate at which quantum computers are being developed, the technology is also a threat, considering it can unravel the algorithms behind the encryption keys that protect the assets we hold most dear.

Managing Open Source Data in Cross-Domain Environments
Provided By: Garrison   Send Email to POC   View Content   Sep 2022
OSINT's ubiquity and advantages for timely analysis of quickly shifting situations has prompted the tech industry to launch cloud-based data-as-a-service platforms fusing open-source data from the public Internet and curating it with machine learning tools. The Department of Defense is taking advantage of these capabilities through the U.S. Army Cyber Command's partnership with the innovation hub, the Cyber Fusion Innovation Center, which issued a request for information that calls for industry input into the capabilities that data- as-a-service can offer.
