Faraday constant

The Faraday constant, named after Michael Faraday, is the magnitude of electric charge per mole of electrons. It has the symbol F and is equal to the Avogadro constant NA divided by the elementary charge e, or F = N_A·e. The value of the Faraday constant is about 96,485.3399 coulombs per mole, or 96,485.34 C/mol. … Read more

Social engineering attack surface

A social engineering attack surface is the total sum of potential vulnerabilities that can be exploited by an attacker through social engineering techniques. The attack surface of a system is the sum of all the potential vulnerabilities that can be exploited. In the context of social engineering, the attack surface includes all the ways an … Read more

Cloud robotics

Cloud robotics is the term used to describe the use of cloud computing in robotics. In this context, cloud computing is used to provide a range of services to robots, including data storage, processing and analysis, and software updates. One of the main benefits of using cloud robotics is that it allows robots to offload … Read more

Physical attack surface

The physical attack surface of a network is the portion of the network that is physically exposed to potential attackers. This can include the network infrastructure itself, as well as any devices that are connected to it. In order to protect the physical attack surface, organisations need to implement physical security measures such as security … Read more

Software attack surface

The “software attack surface” refers to the amount of code exposed to potential attackers in a software system. The larger the attack surface, the greater the risk of vulnerabilities being exploited. To reduce the attack surface, organizations can adopt a number of security best practices, such as minimizing code complexity, reducing the number of exposed … Read more

Critical path method (CPM)

The Critical Path Method (CPM) is a technique used to plan, schedule, and control projects. It is a mathematical algorithm used to find the shortest path through a network of activities. The CPM technique was first developed in the 1950s by American engineer, James E. Kelly. The CPM technique is used to find the critical … Read more

Network attack surface

A network attack surface is the sum total of the different points (known as attack vectors) where an unauthorized user can try to gain access to a network. The larger the attack surface, the greater the chances that someone will be able to successfully gain access to the network. There are a number of ways … Read more

Facebook Spaces

Facebook Spaces is a virtual reality (VR) app developed by Facebook for its Oculus Rift and Oculus Go headsets. The app allows users to interact with each other in a virtual environment as if they were in the same room. Facebook Spaces was launched in April 2017. The app is currently in beta, and is … Read more

78 Questions to Ask About Any Technology

The term “78 Questions to Ask About Any Technology” refers to a set of questions that should be asked when considering any new technology. The questions are designed to help assess the risks and benefits of the technology, and to ensure that it is the right fit for the company. The 78 questions can be … Read more

Social engineering penetration testing

A social engineering penetration test (SEPT) is an authorized simulated attack against an organization, designed to evaluate its security posture. The SEPT is conducted by ethical hackers, also known as white hat hackers, who use the same tools and techniques as malicious hackers, but with the permission of the organization being tested. The purpose of … Read more
