This Week in Cyber

Nathaniel Gleicher,

Four things I'm reading this week:

4 Things In Cyber

  1. DARPA Grand Cyber Challenge: DARPA is sponsoring a national death-match between artificially intelligence cybersecurity systems. I'm reading "Cyber Teams Ready to Throw Down in Grand Challenge."

  2. Defending America’s Electric Grid from … Squirrels: Everyone obsesses about cyber threats to the electric grid, but perhaps we should be paying more attention to information operations like the DNC hacks. This article may be tongue-in-cheek, but it hits the nail on the head. I’m reading "The Threat to America’s Electrical Grid Is Much Bigger Than You Can Possibly Imagine."

  3. Building an Underwriters’ Laboratory for Software: If we want more secure software and devices, we need a consistent way to judge security. This is an important and promising step in that direction. I’m reading: "A Famed Hacker Is Grading Thousands of Programs—and May Revolutionize Software in the Process."
