NCC Group Advises on UK Government’s Manual for Smart Streets

This week, the NCC Group alongside the Department for Transport (DfT) and the Transport Technology Forum (TTF) announced the development of the Manual for Smart Streets (MfSS), a newly launched guide for local authorities and other key stakeholders in road infrastructure. Published online, the MfSS supports authorities who are conceiving, designing and implementing smart street systems. It has been created to provide guidance, examples and practical pointers, allowing authorities to make best use of technology and improve how we travel. The MfSS is intended as working content that continues to evolve with emerging practice and technology. It aims to encourage engagement with the TTF and wider practitioner community, such as NCC Group, to further develop the content of this manual and best practices for smart streets.

Illinois Hospital First Healthcare Facility to Link Its Closing to Ransomware Attack

An Illinois hospital will shutter its doors this week in part because of a devastating cyberattack, which experts say makes it the first hospital to publicly link criminal hackers to its closure. St. Margaret’s Health in Spring Valley will close Friday, said Linda Burt, the hospital’s vice president of quality and community services. Spring Valley’s mayor, Melanie Malooley-Thompson, said the hospital’s closing means some residents will have to travel around half an hour for emergency room services and obstetrics services.

Aware Unveils Aware IQ, the AI-Powered Contextual Intelligence Platform

This week, Aware announced the launch of Aware IQ, an artificial intelligence data platform, purpose-built to understand the unique human context of workplace conversations at scale. Aware uses a variety of techniques to analyze heterogenous digital conversations, including NLP and CV neural network modeling — models trained by a diverse, in-house data science team with the express purpose of interpreting the myriad ways communication occurs in the modern workplace. This allows Aware to identify individual and organizational patterns of behavior in the context of modern communication. That context is often missed by legacy software and traditional surveys. Aware’s models are trained on a proprietary dataset of tens of millions of conversations, which results in more accurate and representative insights than generic datasets. Additionally, Aware’s models are refreshed frequently to ensure accuracy and relevance, which is critical to gaining valuable insight in quickly changing workplaces.

Cloud Security Outlook 2023: Navigating Through Economic Uncertainty

Subhalakshmi Ganapathy of ManageEngine takes us through a quick outlook of cloud security as we reach the halfway point in 2023. The cloud’s complex architecture and perimeter-less nature can make it difficult for security teams to devise an effective cloud security strategy. Adding fuel to the fire, the pandemic has accelerated the lift-and-shift approach to the cloud. This has led to increased cloud misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, and extended attack surfaces. Today’s economy is forcing organizations to be prudent with their investments. As security teams look for solutions to their existing problems, the last thing they need is a reduced IT budget due to the economic crunch. As any security specialist knows, ensuring security without having the proper tools can be extremely challenging. Despite the challenges, organizations can navigate through cloud security selection while being prudent with their investments.

Securing Satellite Networks with SD-WAN

Chitresh Yadav and Gerardo Melesio of Versa Networks beam down on key features needed to secure satellite networks with SD-WAN. Satellite networking is an important alternative for connectivity in many critical use cases. It plays a key role, for example, in building a reliable global network that can operate under adverse and challenging conditions commonly referred to as “Denied, Disrupted, Intermittent, and Limited” (DDIL). This is especially crucial in remote environments such as SCADA, as well as military and defense use cases, which can present challenging conditions such as non-existent wired networks, lack of line of sight, and jamming. Today, multi-orbit and multi-band deployments are creating reinvigorated energy in the satellite communications industry. Geostationary (GEO) links are reliable and available nearly worldwide, but their poor latency characteristics make them impractical for many applications. Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) links improve latencies over GEO and have guaranteed bandwidth, making them useful for many enterprise applications. However, due to their orbit track, they are not available close to the Earth’s poles, and they often use Ku bands, which are more susceptible to rain fade. Finally, Low Earth Orbit (LEO) links have proven effective in residential and IoT segments, but often fail to provide symmetric connectivity for more robust use cases.
