Cybersecurity Degree Program

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 21 Maggio 2019

Exabeam, the Smarter SIEM™ company, today announced a partnership with Deakin University in Australia to strengthen its security management approach and bolster its already distinguished cybersecurity degree program, delivered through the School of IT. The university not only deployed Exabeam Advanced Analytics to help process the large amounts of generated data and spot anomalies on its network; it also turned to the security management leader’s industry expertise to build out its curriculum and initiate a real-life career experience program within the School of IT.Deakin, headquartered in Geelong with multiple campuses in the state of Victoria, is a dynamic and contemporary university with a reputation for leading the digital frontier and strongly focused on providing education that delivers the jobs of the future. The university combines excellent research and outstanding teaching with a strong focus on supporting the communities it serves. Its security posture program, known as Deakin Shield, is a major priority for the university in 2019.Deakin’s security operations team is small but agile and values opportunities to save time and resources.Due to the nature of universities, the Deakin user base can vary from 5,000 to 50,000. The university also uses a log aggregator that generates massive amounts of feeds and alerts on the network. Therefore, the team wanted one easy-to-use, flexible security information and event management (SIEM) solution that could handle this fluctuation on the network– and present all of the security alerts generated by Deakin’s tools in a digestible, actionable manner.After researching and evaluating the key players in the SIEM market, Deakin ultimately selected Exabeam Advanced Analytics to streamline the alerts, analyze behavioral patterns on the network and quickly and accurately identify the most critical anomalies. Exabeam is currently augmenting the university’s legacy Splunk solution, which lacked these machine learning-powered analytics capabilities.

Australia Recognises Jindal Global Law School’s Law Degree

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 23 agosto 2017

sonipatSONIPAT, India/PRNewswire/ JGLS students have even greater career prospects abroad now that the Law Council of Australia (LCA) has recognised all JGLS LLB degrees under the Uniform Principles for Assessing Qualifications of Overseas Applicants for Admission to the Australian Legal Profession.JGLS and the Centre for India Australia Studies (CIAS) of O.P. Jindal Global University (JGU) are working to create such opportunities. The CIAS and JGLS are making Australia more accessible through partnerships in student exchange, degree programmes and internships in Australia.This recognition by the LCA, coupled with the increasing opportunities created by the CIAS and JGLS, mean that students will have clear pathways to pursue a career in law in Australia.Professor (Dr.) C. Raj Kumar, Founding Vice Chancellor of JGU and Dean of JGLS has emphasised, “Providing our students with international career opportunities is a key part of our global vision at JGU. The recognition of our world class degree programme by the LCA is consistent with our vision to create awareness and access to opportunities for our students in Australia.”Duncan Bentley, Member of the Legal Education Committee of the LCA noted that, “The legal professions and law schools in India and Australia have built deep and lasting connections. I am therefore delighted that Jindal Global Law School has taken these to the next level in seeking and achieving recognition for its qualifications.”Shaun Star, Executive Director, CIAS at JGU said, “The recognition by the LCA of the JGLS degree will create opportunities for Indian law graduates to practise law in Australia. This is a significant step in bringing Indian and Australian legal professionals closer together.”Typically, to be able to practise law in Australia, graduates from foreign law schools are required to complete 11 additional subjects after finishing their foreign degree. However, now JGLS students will receive pre-approval of seven of these subjects if they score the required grades in each. Accordingly, JGLS students will only have to complete four prescribed subjects and complete their practical legal training in order to become a qualified practising lawyer in Australia.It is now considerably easier for JGLS graduates to practise law in Australia.

Lancio del Global Design Degree

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 28 gennaio 2016

san diegoDomus Academy, in collaborazione con Domus Academy School of Design a NewSchool, San Diego ( U.S.A.), annuncia il lancio del Global Design Degree, che permetterà agli studenti di sperimentare un percorso formativo internazionale frequentando due anni di corso a Milano e due anni a San Diego. Al termine di questa esperienza internazionale, che combina il meglio dell’Italian design con la creatività e l’innovazione della California, gli studenti otterranno un diploma di laurea dalla Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), NewSchool of Architecture & Design San Diego, e un diploma da Domus Academy Milano.
Domus Academy School of Design a NewSchool ha già aperto le iscrizioni per la sessione autunnale 2016 per i corsi di laurea in Interior Architecture & Design e in Product Design.”A Milano gli studenti sono immersi nella capitale del design, mentre San Diego, d’altra parte, offre una visione contemporanea sulla progettazione e l’innovazione tecnologica, lo stile di vita e la sostenibilità” ha dichiarato Alberto Bonisoli, Chief Academic Officer e ad interim Domus Academy Dean “La collaborazione tra Domus Academy School of Design a NewSchool San Diego e Domus Academy Milano è molto più di un semplice percorso di laurea. Si tratta di un’esperienza davvero globale che aprirà per gli studenti molte porte verso la creatività, una carriera di successo, e il mondo stesso, fornendo conoscenza di due culture progettuali e ampliando i contatti all’interno del mercato internazionale “.In entrambi i paesi, gli studenti seguiranno corsi tenuti da esperti del settore non solo per costruire basi teoriche, ma anche sviluppare progetti concreti con le aziende . Gli studenti hanno lavorato direttamente con firme del calibro di BMW Design Group, Crea International, Audio United, Elic , Fiat, Swenyo, Frog Design , FutureBrand, La Triennale di Milano, Matteo Thun & Partners, Pambianco, RCS Media Group, Studio Urquiola, Co -merge e Whirlpool.Attraverso la costituzione di Domus Academy School of Design a NewSchoool, le due università hanno da tempo iniziato una collaborazione che offre agli studenti locali una reale esperienza del design italiano, coinvolgendo docenti di fama mondiale da Milano e concentrandosi su una filosofia progettuale human-centered e un approccio formativo basato su progetti reali.
“Il design in Italia è da sempre un asset strategico per le aziende, e il successo del made in Italy è stato dovuto al magico incontro tra imprenditori, designer visionari e la competenza dei migliori artigiani “, ha dichiarato Elena Pacenti, direttore di Domus Academy School of Design a NewSchool . “Gli imprenditori nel settore produttivo e del mobile capirono che potevano differenziare i propri marchi attraverso il design.Il dialogo tra queste due realtà ha dato alla luce numerosi prodotti diventati ormai iconici.
Vogliamo infondere ai nostri studenti il concetto di ‘design come forma mentis’, e offrire loro un’esperienza internazionale in modo che possano essere pronti a risolvere qualsiasi tipo di problema in qualsiasi campo -dagli edifici ai prodotti, dagli interni alla grafica ”
Il nuovo Global Design Degree rappresenta un ulteriore passo del continuo impegno di NewSchool e Domus Academy verso l’innovazione, l’internazionalità e la promozione delle diversità culturali nella formazione.

How big is the gap to 2 degrees?

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 18 dicembre 2009

The leaked paper from the UNFCCC Secretariat confirms that the world is badly off course to keep warming well below, or even close to, the widely agreed danger threshold of two degrees warming. Even the top end of the emission pledges currently on the table from industrialised and developing countries would set us on course for warming of around 3 degrees – and probably a lot more once a realistic assessment of the dangerous loopholes in industrialised country targets are taken into account. The UNFCCC report also makes a number of optimistic assumptions. Many of these must be fixed in the closing hours of the Copenhagen negotiations if the world is to stay well below two degrees warming. The assumptions are as follows:The five key assumptions are.: • That all industrialised countries move to the top end of their emission reduction pledges. The most obvious example would be the EU moving from its unilateral 20% reduction target for 2020 to its 30% pledge. • That enough finance and technical support will be made available by industrialised countries to allow developing nations to meet the top end of their emissions cut ranges. • That clear and consistent rules on accounting for land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF) are applied to all countries.  • That all of the surplus emission allowances from the first Kyoto commitment period – often called ‘hot air’ – are taken out of the system. These surplus allowances arise from, for example, former communist eastern bloc countries whose economies shrank rapidly in the nineties. If those credits remain operative – and as yet there is no agreement on whether or how they could be  retired – then they will be carried over to the post-2012 agreement and allow future emissions to be higher, by more than one billion tonnes per year. • That every off-set credit purchased from a developing country under the Clean Development Mechanism is perfect and represents a real emission cut. In fact, a very significant proportion of CDM projects (some credible studies put the figure at around 40%) are not “additional” – and so effectively allow global emissions to increase. • That there is no “double-counting” of emission reductions from offset projects.  The UNFCCC’s paper makes absolutely clear that to give the world a good chance of staying below 2 degrees, and avoiding locking economies in to high carbon pathways, leaders at Copenhagen must: -agree much more ambitious emission reduction targets for industrialised countries. The UNFCCC paper says aggregate reductions of 30% below 1990 levels will be needed in 2020. However, scientists say that to give a decent chance of staying below 2 degrees, aggregate reductions of 40% are needed. -ensure provision of new, additional and predictable finance to support low-carbon growth and greatly reduce deforestation in developing countries. – Close down the major loopholes associated with carry over of surplus “hot air” from the first commitment period, accounting rules for land use and forestry emissions, and the use of offset mechanisms. (abstract) Taking stock – the emission levels implied by the current proposals for Copenhagen, a report for Project Catalyst by McKinsey, can be found at: http://www.project-catalyst.info/images/publications/taking_stock.pdf A new assessment by respected consultants Ecofys and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Research (CHECK) found that world is heading for warming of well over 3 degrees by the end of the century.

Red Bull Cliff Diving Series 2009

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 17 giugno 2009

RP_090616_RBCDSNL_DUQU_8449RP_090616_RBCDSNL_DUQU_8477The world’s best divers, eight challenging competitions and at least 26 metres between takeoff, athletic perfection and dive. In its first year, famous and well-known diving spots as well as extraordinary natural and challenging urban venues have been selected. Starting on the 8th of May in France (La Rochelle), the series will cross the Netherlands (Rotterdam/June 20th), Croatia (Dubrovnik/July 11th), Italy (Polignano a Mare/July 26th), Turkey (Antalya/August 8th), Germany (Hamburg/August 29th) and Switzerland (Sisikon/September 5th) before reaching Greece (Athens) for the finals on the 20th of September. Red Bull Cliff Diving events are judged by five international jurors with scores awarded according to the degree of difficulty and execution of the dive.  Nine times world champion Orlando Duque (COL) was the first diver to arrive in the land of tulips and clogs and went straight from the airport to complete a test dive at the ancient and idyllic Dutch village of Zaanse Schans before he and his eleven fellow contestants will compete in Rotterdam’s Harbour Museum on June 20th within the Red Bull Cliff Diving Series 2009.  After several days without any diving practise, the venue proved to be the perfect setting for Orlando Duque to launch himself 25 meters from a helicopter this Tuesday afternoon to get familiar with the local lifestyle and water conditions, and ready for the round two show-down with Andrey Ignatenko (UKR) and Gary Hunt (GBR).  With its traditional green painted houses, windmills, storehouses, Dutch barns and small, hump-backed bridges, a stroll around the Zaanse Schans generates a feeling of having stepped back in time. However, this afternoon a helicopter circled the water just to open its doors right in front of the six windmills and let one man acrobatically dive into the cold water of the river Zaan. “The most difficult thing about diving from a helicopter is measuring the height, but everything was perfect. Now, I am absolutely focused on the competition on Saturday and looking forward to an intense afternoon”, says Orlando Duque, runner up at the first stop of the series in La Rochelle, France. On Wednesday twelve of the world’s best high divers will meet in Rotterdam and get a first impression of the upcoming diving location: the industrial setting of the city’s historic “Leuvehaven” port. The epicentre of the competition is an enormous crane with a platform hanging at the impressive height of 26 metres. Starting at 01 o’clock pm on Saturday (June 20) the thrilling and most fascinating sport of cliff diving will be presented to the public by its international elite. http://www.redbullcliffdiving.com (photo rbcd1,2)
