Cybercastles & Cyberdefense

hwms.coverart We think about the future in terms of the past. Star Wars, after all, takes place a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. When we think about cyberdefense, we find that we are still think in terms of the static defense of physical infrastructure. We try to defend mobile data with references to earth and stone works from the 8th century. Our Intern, Anna, attempts to explain the basic model of cyber defense as a metaphor of castle defense.  Her description, though completely accurate in argument, has a few errors of fact, errors which should make us rethink how we use metaphor to describe cyberspace.

Big Problems with Big Data

hwms.coverart Big Data. It gives you facts. It tells you what is really happening. It has Volume, Varity, Velocity, Veracity and, of course, Vexation of Spirit. Vexation can come with the data, no matter how much you have of it, tells you more about the structure that gathered it than the truth of any matter. When you have that, you have a problem called Simpson’s Paradox – the bane of Big Data. [17210] Cast:
