Start The Journey To Unlock Building Automation Data | #TpromoCom #Automation #Webinar #BuildingAutomation | Finding value locked away in building automation systems is not a destination, but a journey. Each facility has its own unique challenges and opportunities – while we start projects to unlock that value, the data itself may point us in a new direction.
Facilities needs include energy savings, operational awareness, resilience, reliability or some combination of these objectives. How do we find a solution across these objectives and across the silos of our organization to light up the data we already have before we start to add more?
Join us for this free webinar as we present our journey through the operations at the San Leandro Tech Campus as well as value found on other journeys including NASA, Eli Lilly, University of Maryland, and University of California at Davis.
New Class of Vulnerabilities Leak #Data From Intel Chips | #TpromoCom #CyberSecurity #Information | Millions of computers powered by Intel processors are affected by vulnerabilities that can be exploited by malicious actors to obtain potentially sensitive information. Intel and other tech giants have already released patches and mitigations.
The side-channel attack methods, named ZombieLoad, RIDL (Rogue In-Flight Data Load), and Fallout, are similar to the notorious Meltdown and Spectre, which researchers first disclosed in January 2018. At the time, experts accurately predicted that other similar speculative execution attacks would be discovered.
The attack methods work against both PCs and cloud environments, and they can be launched against most Intel CPUs made in the past decade. The techniques can be used to get applications, the operating system, virtual machines and trusted execution environments to leak information, including passwords, website content, disk encryption keys and browser history.

Facebook Could Be Fined Up To $5 Billion Over Privacy Violations | #TpromoCom #Facebook #Fine #Privacy | Facebook expects to face a massive fine of up to $5 billion from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) as the result of an investigation into its privacy policies—that’s about one month’s revenue for the social media giant.
To be clear the amount of fine is not what the FTC has announced or hinted yet; instead, it’s an estimated due that Facebook disclosed on Wednesday in its first quarter 2019 financial earnings report.
In its earnings report, Facebook said the company had set $3 billion aside in anticipation of the settlement with the FTC, who launched a probe into Facebook following the Cambridge Analytica scandal.

Frost & Sullivan focuses on the future of cyber security | #TpromoCom #Report #Security #CyberSecurity | As cyber crime becomes more sophisticated and even a method of warfare, technologies such as machine learning, Big Data, and blockchain will become prominent. The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) has opened up numerous points of vulnerabilities, compelling cyber security companies, especially startups, to develop innovative solutions to protect enterprises from emerging threats.
“Deploying Big Data solutions is essential for companies to expand the scope of cyber security solutions beyond detection and mitigation of threats,” said Hiten Shah, Research Analyst, Techvision. “This technology can proactively predict breaches before they happen, as well as uncover patterns from past incidents to support policy decisions.”
Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, Envisioning the Next-Generation Cybersecurity Practices, presents an overview of cyber security in enterprises and analyses the drivers and challenges to the adoption of best practices in cyber security. It also covers the technologies impacting the future of cyber security and the main purchase factors.
“Startups need to make their products integrable with existing products and solutions as well as bundle their solutions with market-leading solutions from well-established companies,” noted Shah. “Such collaborations will lead to mergers and acquisitions, ultimately enabling companies to provide more advanced solutions.”
