Finding oil and gas has always been a tricky proposition, given that reserves are primarily hidden underground, and often as not, under the ocean as well. The costs involved in acquiring rights to a site, drilling the wells, and operating them are considerable and has driven the industry to adopt advanced technologies for locating the most promising sites. As a consequence, oil and gas exploration today is essentially an exercise in scientific visualization and modeling, employing some of most advanced computational technologies available. High performance computing (HPC) systems are being used to fill these needs, primarily with x86-based cluster computers and Lustre storage systems. The technology is well developed, but the scale of the problem demands medium to large-sized systems, requiring a significant capital outlay and operating expense. The most powerful systems deployed by oil and gas companies are represented by petaflop-scale computers with multiple petabytes of attached

After a long dry spell triggered in part by the global downturn in the economy, manufacturing is enjoying an economic and technological resurgence. According to the Institute of Supply Management1 (ISM), American manufacturing continues to improve. The ISM recently reported that manufacturing activity expanded in September 2014 for the 16th consecutive month, and that the overall national economy grew for the 64th consecutive month. Part of this growth is being fueled by the adoption of computer aided engineering (CAE) and analysis solutions powered by high performance computing (HPC)—especially by the Tier One manufacturers. HPC is beginning to make some inroads into the ranks of the small to medium sized manufacturers (SMMs), but the going is slow.

Although high-performance computing (HPC) often stands apart from a typical IT infrastructure—it uses highly specialized scale-out compute, networking and storage resources—it shares with mainstream IT the ability to push data center capacity to the breaking point. Much of this is due to data center inefficiencies caused by HPC storage growth. The Seagate® ClusterStor™ approach to scale-out HPC storage can significantly improve data center efficiency. No other vendor solution offers the same advantages.

As of June 2015, the second fastest computer in the world, as measured by the Top500 list employed NVIDIA® GPUs. Of those systems on the same list that use accelerators 60% use NVIDIA GPUs. The performance kick provided by computing accelerators has pushed High Performance Computing (HPC) to new levels. When discussing GPU accelerators, the focus is often on the price-toperformance benefits to the end user. The true cost of managing and using GPUs goes far beyond the hardware price, however. Understanding and managing these costs helps provide more efficient and productive systems.

When it comes to the threat landscape, it’s important to take a look in the rearview mirror once in a while. As with driving, not only do you get a good look at what’s behind you, but you can often spot what’s coming up quick, set to overtake you. That’s the spirit of this threat report. We’ve picked out five key stories from the last year or so, not just because they were big events, but because we think these threats, or similar ones, could very well appear in the near future. Take modular threats like Emotet and VPNFilter, for example. These are threats that can deliver an on-demand menu of attacks and threats, depending on which device is infected or the intended goal of the attacker. We saw plenty of such modular threats in recent history, and wouldn’t be surprised if we see more in the future. Email remains the darling delivery method of attackers, with threats from cryptomining to Emotet using it to spread. It’s also highly likely that other threats, such as unauthorized M

Regardless of the size of the vehicles, and often despite the utmost caution, operating vehicles can be a risky endeavor. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, highway accidents accounted for 37,461 deaths in the U.S. in 2016.1 Moreover, a recent study by Motus, a vehicle management and reimbursement platform, found that 40% of all motor vehicle accidents are work-related and cost employers a staggering $56.7 billion in 2017, taking into account medical expenses, property damage, increased insurance premiums, and lost productivity.2 While liability insurance is an important way for employers to address that risk, it’s by no means a panacea. Companies can and should be doing more to lessen the likelihood of accidents in the first place. And given that the vast majority (94%, according to NHTSA’s study) stem from driver-related actions or inactions as opposed to equipment malfunctions, one of the most important ways of doing so is to ensure that the in

Collaboration among compliance safety, and risk DS Services, a distributor of leading beverage brands to residential and business customers, employs more than 3,500 drivers nationwide. Tracking its drivers – and ensuring they’re qualified to be behind the wheel – isn’t easy. “Reviewing motor vehicle records (MVRs) can take weeks, as every state reports violation information differently,” says Jason Gay, DOT compliance administrator for DS Services. “I was spending 12 to 15 hours a week on paperwork alone. It was time to simplify the process.” DS Services originally turned to SambaSafety to help reduce paperwork and increase efficiency; however, by incorporating continuous driver monitoring into its safety program, DS Services is able to impact its business in . other positive ways.

What you don't know could hurt your bottom line Let’s begin with a question: Do you know who is behind the wheel? The reality is that for many enterprises with employees who drive as part of their job, the answer is, “I think so,” or maybe, “no.” Driver risk management has recently become a top issue for many organizations since it directly affects budgets and the bottom line. The fact that there are more than 100 million people driving for work-related activities on U.S. roads and many of them have invalid, suspended or no driver’s license at all should be cause enough for concern. But combining this with the facts that: • most organizations’ budgets are at best flat • P&C insurance rates are rising 14% every 2 years • 90% of crashes are due to human error • there are fewer qualified drivers available today • the number of lawsuits around negligence are skyrocketing • and it becomes clear that understanding exposure to driver risk is imperative for every organization. So what do

Today, it’s commonplace for companies to check the motor vehicle records (MVRs) of their drivers once a year. That’s considered due diligence. But what if one driver gets a moving violation or a citation for driving under the influence three weeks after the report was pulled? It could take months for that potentially costly issue to come to light. Likewise, a driver safety policy issued annually is typically worth about as much as the paper it’s written on. There is great potential in setting high standards and creating positive driving behaviors, but this must be a continual process informed by concrete policies, shared motivation to improve, useful data, and quality leadership. Fortunately, several important practices can help companies create a better safety culture –saving money, reducing risk and legal vulnerability, and keeping employees and communities safe. Here’s how.

In the early years of software development, you would often design it, build it, and only then think about how to secure it. This was arguably fine in the days of monolithic applications and closed networks, when good perimeter-based protection and effective identity and access management would get you a long way towards minimising the risk. In today’s highly connected, API-driven application environments, however, any given software component or service can be invoked and potentially abused in so many different ways. Add to this the increasing pace of change through iterative ‘DevOps-style’ delivery and ever-faster release cycles, and many understandably assert that security management and assurance nowadays needs to be an ongoing and embedded part of the development and delivery process.

2017 war kein einfaches Jahr für einen CIO / CISO, und auch 2018 gibt es derzeit keine Anzeichen dafür, dass es einfacher wird. Bei so vielen Datenverstößen, die sogar Karrieren beendeten, allein im Jahr 2017 (Equifax, Uber, Yahoo, um nur einige zu nennen) und mit weltweit verschärften regulatorischen Anforderungen haben CIOs / CISOs die unternehmerische Verantwortung, ihren Ansatz zur Datensicherheit zu überdenken. Abgesehen von der Einhaltung gesetzlicher Vorschriften sind Unternehmen gegenüber ihren Kunden und Aktionären verp?ichtet, Daten zu schützen und ihre Gefährdung nicht nur gegenüber externen Angreifern, sondern auch gegenüber Mitarbeitern zu minimieren. Die im Jahr 2017 am häu?gsten genutzte Methode für Datendiebstahl war das Phishing, welches sich an interne Mitarbeiter von Unternehmen richtete (siehe Report zur Untersuchung von Datenverstößen im Jahr 2017). Damit wurden diese Mitarbeiter unwissentlich mitschuldig an der Datenverletzung: Über 80% der erfolgreichen Cyber-An
