  • Inside The New Generation of Phishing Attacks
    Inside The New Generation of Phishing Attacks Michael Landewe, Researcher, Avanan Cofounder Recorded: May 23 2017 37 mins
    What we know and have trained users about phishing attacks has changed. Old methods no longer apply.

    IT teams have deployed filters and taught our users to detect phishing attacks by scanning for suspicious URLs, spoofed login pages, and unrecognized senders. We've told people to change passwords, turn on two factor authentication and watch for suspicious logins.

    None of these methods can defend against the next generation of automated, malicious API-based phishing attacks that are invisible to users and unmonitored by SaaS.

    Once exclusive to advanced state-sponsored actors, the recent Google Docs worm pushed this sophisticated method into the headlines.

    In this webinar we will dig deep into the next generation of phishing attack and describe the new methods every IT team must deploy to defend against them. Because the vulnerability is not unique to Google, we will also discuss Office 365, Box, Salesforce and other popular business apps.

  • Toward Internet of Everything: Architectures, Standards, & Interoperability
    Toward Internet of Everything: Architectures, Standards, & Interoperability Ram D. Sriram, Chief of the Software and Systems Division, IT Lab at National Institute of Standards and Technology Jun 21 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In this talk, Ram will provide a unified framework for Internet of Things, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Smart Networked Systems and Societies, and then discuss the role of ontologies for interoperability.

    The Internet, which has spanned several networks in a wide variety of domains, is having a significant impact on every aspect of our lives. These networks are currently being extended to have significant sensing capabilities, with the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT). With additional control, we are entering the era of Cyber-physical Systems (CPS). In the near future, the networks will go beyond physically linked computers to include multimodal-information from biological, cognitive, semantic, and social networks.

    This paradigm shift will involve symbiotic networks of people (social networks), smart devices, and smartphones or mobile personal computing and communication devices that will form smart net-centric systems and societies (SNSS) or Internet of Everything. These devices – and the network -- will be constantly sensing, monitoring, interpreting, and controlling the environment.

    A key technical challenge for realizing SNSS/IoE is that the network consists of things (both devices & humans) which are heterogeneous, yet need to be interoperable. In other words, devices and people need to interoperate in a seamless manner. This requires the development of standard terminologies (or ontologies) which capture the meaning and relations of objects and events. Creating and testing such terminologies will aid in effective recognition and reaction in a network-centric situation awareness environment.

    Before joining the Software and Systems Division (his current position), Ram was the leader of the Design and Process group in the Manufacturing Systems Integration Division, Manufacturing Engineering Lab, where he conducted research on standards for interoperability of computer-aided design systems.

  • Powering the Industrial Internet of Things
    Powering the Industrial Internet of Things Charles J. Lord, PE, President & Chief Trainer, Blue Ridge Advanced Design and Automation Jun 22 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Don’t confuse the Internet of Things (IoT) with the Industrial IoT (IIoT), which typically has much more stringent characteristics. That’s because the IIoT usually involves some sort of manufacturing, robotics, or other mission-critical application, where down-time can be measured in dollars, often lots of them. In Day 3 of this three-day class, we’ll look at how to best power your IIoT application, which could include FPGA power and design considerations for high-speed RS-485 data links. The class will use the Intersil PowerCompass tool to help simplify the design. Day 3 sponsored by Intersil

  • The Data Cities Collect and Your Transportation Future
    The Data Cities Collect and Your Transportation Future Laura Schewel, CEO, StreetLight Data Jun 23 2017 9:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    From automated vehicles to ride hailing apps, transportation as we know it is changing - and fast. But new technologies alone won't help communities build the efficient, equitable, and sustainable transportation networks communities want. In fact, these innovative technologies could do just the opposite, especially if they are not deployed wisely. Cities must collect the right data and enact the right policies to ensure they do not exacerbate problems like inequity and traffic, and to hold themselves accountable to the promise of new mobility technologies.

    In this webinar, you will find out why - and how - the smartest cities of tomorrow will be those that adopt data-driven transportation strategies today. Join for Laura Schewel's presentation to gain insights into:

    • Why the status quo for transportation data collection is no longer good enough
    • The types of Massive Mobile Data that are useful for transportation and urban planning
    • Algorithmic processing techniques that are critical for making this data useful
    • Case studies from California and Virginia that demonstrate why Massive Mobile Data drives more effective transportation planning
    • A forward-looking blueprint for using Massive Mobile Data to maximize the potential benefits of new transportation technologies - and minimize negative impacts

    Laura Schewel founded StreetLight Data, a mobility analytics provider, after spending more than a decade as an advanced transportation researcher and statistician at the Rocky Mountain Institute and FERC. She has particular expertise in transportation systems, sustainability and safety, and vehicle/system modeling and analysis.
