COSTA MESA, Calif., Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Experian Data Breach Resolution, a leader in helping businesses plan for and mitigate consumer risk following data breach incidents, today released a collection of educational resources for businesses with anecdotes and advice on how to prepare for and manage a data breach. Compiled based on the company's history of servicing some of North America's largest data breaches, the initiative packages key learnings from Experian's behind-the-scenes support of more than 2,000 client breaches last year. This includes servicing clients across many industry sectors, such as retail, healthcare and financial services.

According to the Identity Theft Resource Center, there have already been 404 data breaches in the United States in 2014, which is a 20 percent increase over the same period last year. The data breaches have exposed more than 11 million records1.
"There is no doubt a data breach is a significant issue companies must prepare for and address as one of their highest priorities," said Michael Bruemmer, vice president, Experian Data Breach Resolution. "We want to ensure businesses are equipped with current information and the resources they need to plan ahead and know what steps to take when the inevitable breach occurs."

Choosing the right cloud for your workloads is a balancing act that can cost your organization time, money and aggravation - unless you get it right the first time. Economics, speed, performance, accessibility, administrative needs and security all play a vital role in dictating your approach to the cloud. Without knowing the right questions to ask, you could wind up paying for capacity you'll never need or underestimating the resources required to run your applications.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
