Garry Kasparov Speaks To Rajdeep Sardesai On Russia-Ukraine War, Vladimir Putin & More | Exclusive

Posted by in categories: business, security, transportation

Russian President Vladimir Putin has been preparing for the war in Ukraine in plain sight, said Russian Chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov. He added that the Russian invasion of Ukraine could have been avoided had Western countries listened to what Vladimir Putin had been saying.
In an exclusive interview with India Today, Kasparov said, “Back in 2007 at the Munich Security Conference, he [Putin] had talked about spheres of influence. He wanted the world to be divided in the fashion of the past where big countries dictated to smaller countries how to behave.
“Putin has been preparing for the war in Ukraine in plain sight. He bought his Pacific fleet to the Black Sea. Russian forces have now surrounded Ukraine from all sides.“
The 58-year-old former World Chess Champion, however, said that what is happening in Ukraine now is a deviation from Russia’s plans.
“Russia failed to take over Kyiv in two or three days as planned. The heroic defence by Ukrainians has harmed Putin’s image as an invincible leader,” Kasparov said.
Watch the exclusive interview.

Posted by in categories: engineering, security

DoD announced today awards of $28.7 million in grants to 17 university-based faculty teams through the FY2021 Minerva Research Initiative to support research in social and behavioral science.

“We live in a dynamic world, and many of the challenges we face are social or have social elements to them,” said Dr. Bindu Nair, Director, Basic Research Office in the Office of the Undersecretary of Defense for Research and Engineering. “The knowledge and methodologies generated from Minerva awardees have improved DoD’s ability to define sources of present and future conflict with an eye toward better understanding the political trajectories of key regions of the world.”

This initiative supports basic research that focuses on topics of particular relevance to U.S. national security. Through its network of faculty investigators, the Minerva Research Initiative also strengthens the Department’s connections with the social science community and helps DoD better understand and prepare for future challenges, including National Defense Strategy priorities.

Over 20,000 data center management systems exposed to hackers

Posted by in categories: business, computing, security

Researchers have found over 20,000 instances of publicly exposed data center infrastructure management (DCIM) software that monitor devices, HVAC control systems, and power distribution units, which could be used for a range of catastrophic attacks.

Data centers house costly systems that support business storage solutions, operational systems, website hosting, data processing, and more.

The buildings that host data centers must comply with strict safety regulations concerning fire protection, airflow, electric power, and physical security.
