Drone manufacturing may have been revolutionized this week. Design software and services company Autodesk and the US Marine Corps (USMC) have announced a successful project to create new military drones using 3D printing technology.
The new drone, nicknamed “Scout,” is a small fixed-wing surveillance drone. It can snap apart into four or five parts and be carried in a field pack. It takes less than 3 minutes to assemble and it weighs very little.
Ransomware attacks have become an increasingly popular way for cybercriminals to use stolen data to make money.
Historically, following most data breaches, cybercriminals put the sensitive user information accumulated from the attack up for sale on the dark web. Depending upon the type of personal information available, records sell for different amounts of money, with healthcare records fetching more than a password, for example.
Ransomware, and more recently, ransomworms, take a different approach. Rather than stealing your information and selling it to other malicious actors, cybercriminals that conduct ransomware attacks steal your data by encrypting it, and make their money by selling it back to you with a key for decryption.

Maintaining visibility of hundreds—if not thousands—of endpoints and then taking corrective actions to the discovered abnormalities is a critical security challenge many organizations face today. Most organizations dedicate substantial portions of their budgets on endpoint protection technologies.
As the market expands, large swaths of vendors have attempted to address the fundamental needs around securing endpoints, including:
Generative design tools can create lightweight, stronger designs that use less material in almost any context, as they use algorithms to generate designs within parameters set by users. Experts think these designs will become common by 2020.
Facebook and Autodesk have partnered with nonprofit organization Inneract Project, which is geared toward bringing design to young people in underserved communities through free, hands-on classes and mentorship.
With the support of Autodesk and Facebook, Inneract Project has been able to hire two full-time employees, an operations manager and a project leader coordinator. The organization is also able to bring on a few part-time people, Inneract founder and Executive Director Maurice Woods told me.
“More importantly, what it’s done is provide us an opportunity to really become real, sound players, not only just in creating curriculum but also in starting to have meaningful programs with kids,” Woods said.
In the cybersecurity world, good news is rare. But according to the 2017 Thales Data Threat Reportconducted by 451 Research, the world spent more on cybersecurity during the last year than in any other year. Security spending is up—that’s good news for both security vendors and for practitioners struggling with budget constraints.
Networks used by educational institutions benefit from being open and promoting a limitless flow of information and ideas. However, much like the student-teacher relationship, the user-network relationship is one that must be built on trust. The extent of personal information and intellectual data that is often housed on these networks requires a reliable cyber security platform. That’s where FortiSIEM enters the discussion.
