US Federal Government Infographic on Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is still a major concern across the federal government, according to the findings. More than half of the 200-plus government employees polled said cybersecurity was “high priority” among their agency’s current IT initiatives. And employees are looking to the National Institute of Standards and Technology for guidelines on continuous monitoring and securing mobile platforms and cloud software. More than two-thirds of respondents said continuous monitoring would have the most influence on cybersecurity moving forward, but only 38 percent felt their agency had a process in place to address continuous monitoring. Moving forward, the largest barrier to better cybersecurity that government employees identified is personnel and training issues. Still, nearly half of those surveyed were confident in their agencies security posture.

See the full results below.

It is becoming cool to not be seen…

Fast-forward a few months. Flying surveillance cameras, also known as drones, are increasingly in the news. So are advances in facial-recognition technology. And wearable devices likeGoogle Glass — which can be used to take photographs and videos and upload them to the Internet within seconds — are adding to the fervor. Then there are the disclosures of Edward Snowden, the fugitive former government contractor, about clandestine government surveillance.

Novel testing device for detecting toxic blue-green algae

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has developed a fast and affordable testing device for detecting the presence of toxic blue-green algae in water. There is currently no fast, affordable and user-friendly way for consumers to check water quality themselves. 

The blue-green algae testing kit developed by VTT and the University of Helsinki is like a miniature laboratory. The device is the size of a thermometer, and it contains antibodies that react to any toxic bacteria found in a water sample. The test reveals in minutes whether the water sample contains toxic blue-green algae.
