Isles’ new UBS Arena to prioritize mobile technology

UBS Arena planners want to ensure most of the physical contact in the under-construction building at Belmont Park will take place on the ice during Islanders games.

The COVID-19 pandemic has radically refocused thinking on health and safety protocols, and UBS Arena will prioritize mobile technology to reduce “touch points.”

“We have a chance to build into the original fabric of our arena various things that will keep our fans safe and sound,” Islanders co-owner Jon Ledecky said on a webinar released on Thursday detailing some of the health and safety precautions being designed in conjunction with arena sponsor Northwell Health and developer Oak View Group.

“The most important thing we’re facing off against is the comfort of home and being on the sofa,” Ledecky said. “We have to give a reason for the customer to come out and come to UBS Arena. We have to make sure that the

Task force: U.S. must prioritize AI in race to defend against Russia, China

A bipartisan congressional task force this week recommended that the Department of Defense prioritize investing in artificial intelligence, supply chain resiliency and cyberwarfare in order to deal with imminent threats from China and Russia.

The Future of Defense Task Force, chaired by Reps. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., and Jim Banks, R-Ind., on Tuesday released an 87-page report pointing out the vulnerabilities in U.S. national security and recommending how to fix them.

Banks said in a statement that the Pentagon needs to innovate to ensure the United States maintains its global military supremacy, and the report was the roadmap to do it.

“This report details a vision of the future of defense–specifically a smart, whole-of-nation strategy addressing the rise of China,” he said.

The U.S. economic and military dominance post-Cold War has been reduced in recent years, the report said. China is expected to soon overtake the United States as the world’s

5 top vulnerability management tools and how they help prioritize threats

The science and technology behind vulnerability management has changed a lot in a short time. When originally deployed, vulnerability management companies acted almost like antivirus vendors in that they tried to get their scanners to uncover as many potential threats as possible. They would even brag about being able to detect more vulnerabilities hiding in testbeds than their competitors.

The trouble with that logic is that unlike viruses and other types of malware, vulnerabilities are only potentially a problem. For a vulnerability to be truly dangerous, it must be accessible to an attacker and relatively easy to exploit. So, a vulnerability sitting on an internal resource isn’t much of a potential threat, nor is one that requires additional components like secure access to other network services. Knowing what is truly dangerous is important so that you can plan what to fix now, and what to put off until later or
