DENVER
, Sept 8, 2016 –
SecureSet Academy and Norwich University have signed an Articulation Agreement solidifying the ability for SecureSet Academy students graduating from the CORE program to transfer into one of five Norwich Undergraduate programs. SecureSet Academy students meeting the academic standards outlined in the agreement can transfer into one of the five programs for 33 credit hours—this represents approximately one year of university education. This is a bold and novel initiative by both organizations, which are looking to meet the challenges in the changing face of the education and cybersecurity industries.

Particle Physics, A Small Mammal & Risk-Informed Thinking

Posted by Alex Kreilein on Wed, May 4, 2016 @ 14:05 PM

Last week, the fears of all security practitioners were realized.

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s most powerful particle accelerator, went dark. Within this international experimental facility, researchers are recreating moments in time, like The Big Bang, to determine the origins of the universe and are using partial physics to yield breakthroughs in innovation. The facility consists of a 27-kilometre ring of superconducting magnets and a number of accelerating structures boosting the energy of the particles along the way. This construction with an estimated budget of $4B and the collaboration of 10,000 scientists makes the LHC one of the most expensive and technically-advanced programs in the world. Sadly, it’s not really working at the moment thanks to a small, industrious creature.

As NPR reported a “small mammal, possibly a weasel,” gnawed-through a power cable at the LHC causing its failure. CERN released documentation pointing the finger to a small "fouine.” Either order, the effect is the same: no big bang for Switzerland!

So should we all prepare our infrastructure for attacks from clever mammals? This question gets at the heart of risk-informed thinking.
