IoT analytics: Big data meets the ‘Internet of Things’

The “Internet of Things” is expected to be one of the primary drivers for the expanded use of analytics – and IoT analytics are, in fact, expected to drive a large portion of the value that can be derived from IoT projects.

The view of what constitutes IoT is evolving from the days when the telecom industry more or less equated the nature of IoT traffic to something like radio frequency ID: light, bursty traffic that could be handled by carrier 2G networks, and was a way to further monetize those long-standing investments.

Strategies and best practices for protecting information and infrastructure

Industrial infrastructures are increasingly connected, getting smarter and more efficient in the process. Along with these gains comes the need to protect infrastructure assets from cyber attacks. A major cyber attack on the US grid, for example, could cost up to $1trn, according to a recent report by Lloyd’s and Cambridge Centre for Risk Studies. To discuss the state of industrial cyber security and how to best advance it, Look ahead interviewed Ralph Langner, founder of the Langner Group and a cyber-security expert specialising in industrial control systems. In 2010, he led the team that reverse engineered Stuxnet, the first malware designed to destroy physical assets. Here he shares his views on what can be done to better protect infrastructure assets.

Zweden experimenteert opnieuw met kortere werkdagen

Dit is Tijdens de jaren negentig was Zweden een voorloper op het gebied van kortere werkdagen. Daar kwam een einde aan toen aan het begin van deze eeuw linkse partijen de macht moesten overdragen aan liberalen en conservatieven…
