Cyber Security Awareness

Awareness is a relative concept. Awareness may be focused on an internal state, such as a visceral feeling, or on external events by way of sensory perception. Insects do not have consciousness in the usual sense because they lack the brain capacity for thought and understanding.

Self Awareness

Popular ideas about consciousness suggest the phenomenon describes a condition of being aware of oneself (Self-Awareness). Efforts to describe consciousness in neurological terms have focused on describing networks in the brain that develop awareness of the quality develop by other networks.

Basic Awareness

Higher” forms of awareness including self-awareness require cortical contributions, but “Primary Consciousness” or “Basic Awareness” as an ability to integrate sensations from the environment with one’s immediate goals and feelings in order to guide behavior, springs from the brain stem which human beings share with most of the vertebrates.

Changes in Awareness

The ability to consciously detect an image when presented at near-threshold stimulus varies across presentations. One factor is “Baseline shifts” due to top down attention that modulates ongoing brain activity in sensory cortex areas that affects the neural processing of subsequent perception judgments.


Emerging cybersecurity & privacy trends 2017

Image result for Emerging cybersecurity & privacy trends 2017

In 2017, cybersecurity and privacy are front of mind for business leaders, regulators and law enforcement agencies and governments. Several key trends shape the cybersecurity and privacy landscape, including potential new policy directions and the growing complexity of various cyber and privacy regulations.

Against that backdrop, organizations themselves are evolving, with increasingly involved corporate boards, the need to monitor third-party contractors, and changing methods of product development that can build in cybersecurity and privacy measures by design. Read on for a view on this year’s trends.
