This Organic Computer is Made up from Brains of Rats and Monkeys

Brains are more powerful than computers. So why not build a computer from Brain?  In fact, Multiple Brains as per sayings, " Two heads are better than one. " Scientists at Duke University have done exactly that. They have successfully developed the first instance of a Brain-machine interface that employs multiple brains at once to operate a single machine. "Organic Computers" – Made from Brains of Rats and Monkeys Scientists were able to interconnect the brains of four rats to create a " Brainet " that is capable of accomplishing computational tasks better than the tasks performed by any one of the rats. In the recent paper published in the journal Scientific Reports, the neurobiologist leading the research, Miguel Nicolelis says: " Recently, we proposed that 'Brainets,' i.e. networks formed by multiple animal brains, cooperating and exchanging information in real time through direct brain-to-brain interfaces, could
SIEM for One, SIEM for All

SIEM for One, SIEM for All

IT security is not a luxury; it's a necessity. While IT practitioners understand this and are on the lookout for effective security options for their network, security solutions manufacturers tend to serve the enterprise market and large companies more than they do smaller organizations and resource-constrained security teams. The reality is that 99% of IT security departments are resource-constrained in terms of budget, time, and staff. This situation directly aligns with the Security Information & Event Management (SIEM) market. With the scores of costly, appliance-based and enterprise SIEM solutions on the market, the majority of security teams find it difficult to adopt SIEM to strengthen network security. Even if they do manage to meet the high cost of a SIEM purchase, they end up acquiring a SIEM which is too big for their security needs. This means incurring additional appliance maintenance costs, IT staff overhead costs to manage the SIEM product, and training an

When it comes to Information Security, there's a great way to learn, train and keep sharp your skills. This can be done using gamification mechanics to speed up the learning curve and improve retention rate. Capture The Flag competitions use gamification mechanics and represent one of the best ways to learn security hands on. The Infosec team behind Capture The Flag platform  CTF365  has created a place for hackers to play weekend CTFs with great prizes, called  Hacker's Dome . In order to access the Hacker's Dome, you need is a registered and confirmed CTF365 account.  At Hacker's Dome CTF Platform users can deploy their own CTFs and can invite web developers, system administrators and security professionals to take hard challenges. Think RackSpace, of CTF Competitions. Hacker's Dome - First Blood:  First Blood is the first CTF and will start on May 17 2014 15:00 UTC and winners will win more than $6000 in prizes . If Information Security  gamific

E-HACK is an Information Security Workshop, organized by infySEC . The workshop aims at creating awareness about INFORMATION SECURITY by showing in what all ways information or data can be stolen. Meddle in cyber-warfare, battle with our machine master mind who will throw challenges on web application security, network security, algorithms, reverse engineering and decryption.  The team which cracks the final level will attain the glory of being Winner at our E-HACK Guinness record attempt with tons of prizes waiting. Be simple but not simpler is quote by Einstein, that's secret of success for E-HACK. Be there to witness the epic battle of brains. It's planned to be done in a more fun way, through a game called CTF (Capture the Flag) . The only way to know how to protect our information is by knowing the ways in which it can be stolen. So, we'll be having wide range of discussions on what all ways a HACKER can get his hands on your information and in what all ways you can thwart him
