DRC’s Paul Strasser on Move Towards Continuous Monitoring in Cybersecurity

ExecutiveBiz recently sat down with Paul Strasser, Senior Vice President of Strategic Development for Dynamics Research Corporation. During the interview, Strasser discussed the current cybersecurity landscape and where it is going:

“Today there is a move towards “continuous monitoring“, which is an adoption of some good techniques that have come out of the State Department ““namely from Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) John Streufert.  The State Department developed risk profiles around the Consensus Audit Guidelines that they use to constantly monitor and review their information security risks across their IT networks and devices. DRC sees this as an important initiative for the future because continuous monitoring not only helps the federal government have greater visibility and response to vulnerabilities in real-time, it should also save the taxpayer's money over the current system built around document compliance.  We are excited about the potential here as it fits nicely with our work in engineering solutions, training and performance support, and business transformation that we currently deliver to the federal government.”

USPS Adopts Edge AI to Expedite Package Tracking; NVIDIA’s Anthony Robbins Quoted

The U.S. Postal Service has implemented an edge artificial intelligence system on the NVIDIA EGX platform to help speed up the process of identifying and tracking packages within hours instead of several days. The distributed edge AI platform, called the Edge Computing Infrastructure Program, emerged from a three-week sprint in 2019. During the sprint, a USPS data scientist and NVIDIA architects identified ways to accelerate the analysis of billions of images of packages each USPS center generates by designing deep learning models.
