Fighting Ransomware with Disaster Recovery Planning | @CloudExpo #Cloud #Security

2017 was the year of ransomware. Ransomware has been around for years, but the victims were typically non-technical consumers: the impact, although serious from the victim's perspective, was limited. In 2017 we've seen huge ransomware attacks close down hospitals and businesses, putting lives and billions of dollars at risk. 2018 has to be the year we fight back. The organized crime groups behind ransomware won't stop any time soon. For them, it's easy money. Attacks will increase in sophistication and tenacity. Businesses have to be ready. What does it mean to be ready for a ransomware attack? Any business that follows security and disaster recovery planning best practices has an infinitesimally small chance of being successfully targeted with ransomware. If you're smart about it, you won't have to pay a ransom even if your network is infected and your data encrypt... (more)

Big Data and Analytics – What’s Ahead? | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #BigData

Recently I read somewhere this statement – As we end 2017 and look ahead to 2018, topics that are top of mind for data professionals are the growing range of data management mandates, including the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation that is directed at personal data and privacy, the growing role of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in enterprise applications, the need for better security in light of the onslaught of hacking cases, and the ability to leverage the expanding Internet of Things. Here are the key areas as we look ahead: Business owners demand outcomes – not just a data lake to store all kinds of data in its native format and API’s. Data Science must produce results – Play and Explore is not enough. Learn to ask the right questions. Visualization of analytics from search. Everyone wants Real Time – Days and weeks too slow, need ... (more)

Back to the Future: 2018 Big Data and Data Science Prognostications | @ExpoDX #DX #BigData #Analytics

“We should study Science Fiction in order to understand what someday could become Science Fact.” – Dr. Who?  Doc Brown?  Kodos and Kang? This is the time of year when everyone makes his or her predictions for 2018.  I have my predictions as well, but wanted to do something a bit more fun.  So I thought I’d look backwards to the state of technology 50 years ago to gain some insights that we can use to make projections about 2018. That is, what “predictions” made in the 1950’s might tell us about 2018. However, it’s really hard to find predictions about the future made in the 1950’s.  There was no Internet or Social Media or Reality TV, so I found the next best proxy…sci-fi movies!  I decided to review the most popular sci-fi movies from 1950’s, and provide my perspective as to what these movies might tell us about 2018.  Maybe drink a Tab or Fresca as you read thi...

Improving Operational Efficiency in Healthcare | @CloudExpo #API #Cloud #Analytics

Improving Operational Efficiency in Healthcare By Mohan Giridharadas, Founder and CEO, LeanTaaS The notion of improving operational efficiency is conspicuously absent from the healthcare debate - neither Obamacare nor the newly proposed GOP plan discusses the impact that a step-function improvement in efficiency could have on access to healthcare (through more capacity), quality of healthcare services (through reduced wait times for patients) or cost (through better utilization of scarce, expensive assets). The opportunity of improving operational efficiency in health systems is plainly visible - a quick walk around any hospital or clinic will show the obvious symptoms: waiting rooms filled with people while the very piece of equipment for which they are waiting remains idle and patients spending 90 minutes or more to obtain a quick consultation or a check of their v...

[slides] Serverless Compute Solutions for IoT Device Simulation | @ThingsExpo @Infostretch #IoT #AI #DX #SmartCities

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here How to Make Use of Serverless Compute Solutions for IoT Device Simulation When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it's simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be looking at some significant engineering investment. On-demand, serverless computing enables developers to try out a fleet of devices on IoT gateways with ease. With a sensor simulator built on top of AWS Lambda, it's possible to elastically gener...
