Worried about cloud security? Remember, a lot of it is just like data center security. But there are important ways in which it's not. https://insights.hpe.com/articles/5-ways-cloud-security-is-just-like-data-center-security-and-5-ways-its-different-1701.html
For your cloud-based data to be secure, your data center has to be secure, but other aspects of cloud security go far beyond the data center.

The role of the internet in US elections began 20 years ago, and it's been increasing ever since. During the election of 2016 the use of the internet in campaigns came fully of age. This is the first where the internet, especially social media, played a critical role in the outcome. http://www.eweek.com/cloud/how-the-internet-came-of-age-as-a-campaign-tool-in-2016-election.html

The election of 2016 is the first in which cyber-politics played a dominant role in the political process. But exactly what will that role turn out to be? It certainly changed the nature of discourse. But did anything get better? Perhaps we'll see when the votes are counted. http://www.eweek.com/cloud/cyber-politics-reached-new-heights-in-2016-presidential-election.html

eWEEK was there as #OrbitalATK conducted a successful launch of the #Antares rocket carrying the #Cygnus spacecraft to the +International Space Station from the +Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The upgraded Antares performed flawlessly, and beat expectations. We have the story and the video. http://www.eweek.com/it-management/antares-rocket-successfully-launches-for-space-station-rendezvous.html

We looked at the geospatial tracking software from +Mogean, Inc. to see how the company uses the power of #BigData to track evacuations from #HurricaneMatthew and then to see where everyone went to ride out the storm. http://www.eweek.com/enterprise-apps/using-big-data-to-track-hurricane-evacuations.html

Once again eWEEK works with #LUX2016 at #ICGSolutions to see who won Monday's presidential debate. Social media sentiment analysis tracked closely with the major polls, out today. As a result, we knew that Hillary Clinton won over Donald Trump. So how exactly did this work? We talked with the highly respected +Pam Baker who filled us in on how it worked and on the limitations of social media sentiment analysis. http://www.eweek.com/enterprise-apps/social-media-analysis-shows-clinton-beat-trump-in-presidential-debate.html

Our analysis of the statements, positions and appointments of Donald Trump, the new US President, indicate that he's probably going to be a reliable friend to the tech industry. But we don't know everything yet, and a great deal depends on Congress, so stay tuned. http://www.eweek.com/it-management/trumps-early-statements-indicate-hell-be-a-tech-industry-ally.html

It makes me laugh to read the words "Trump" and "reliable" in the same sentence.

I'm getting a lot of questions about the#polling in Tuesday's presidential #election, and how it can be so wrong. The short answer is that the world changed but political polling didn't change with it. http://www.eweek.com/enterprise-apps/old-school-polling-methods-hid-trumps-popularity-with-voters.html

Our data is showing that there's a high likelihood of "hidden voters" who are not counted in the polls emerging in today's election. This could lead to an election surprise and the heavier than usual turnout seen so far today tends to support that. #election2016 http://www.eweek.com/cloud/social-media-analysis-shows-clinton-trump-race-getting-closer.html

Thanks to SJVN for the best laugh I've had all day.
 
Hmmm... 
Programming sucks. This fairytale comic shows the different ways in which programming languages could fail you in the fantasy kingdom.

The connected devices that make up the Internet of Things may be the single greatest threat to the security of your organization. This is because #IoT devices continue to be insecure, unprotected and unmanaged. Even worse, many of them can't be effectively managed. http://www.eweek.com/security/weak-device-security-turns-iot-into-powerful-weapon-in-ddos-attacks.html

Scientists in Calgary, Alberta have demonstrated that communications using quantum entanglement is possible. That may lead to unbreakable security in the short term. But in the long term it might mean faster-than-light radio like what you've heard about in science fiction. http://www.eweek.com/security/scientists-demonstrate-long-distance-quantum-communication.html #FTL #QuantumCommunications
