While the world grapples with the pandemic, rapid digitization owing to social distancing is deepening cybersecurity vulnerabilities, exacerbating known threat vectors and exposing unforeseen weaknesses. The FBI recently reported a 400% increase in cybercrime complaints. Interpol also claimed a massive spike in cybercrime, citing nearly a million spam messages and malicious URLs related to Covid-19.
Social engineering attacks prey on pandemic woes.
The coronavirus — and our reaction to it — has created the perfect storm for online disruption. Seemingly overnight, millions of us are now working from home, opening businesses to a number of unplanned-for cyber risks. These risks get compounded by the widespread panic, confusion and uncertainty that surround the virus amid worsening economic conditions.
Cybercriminals use this environment to their advantage by reinventing tactics that align
The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, a program of Society for Science & the Public, is the world’s largest international pre-college science competition. Through a global network of local, regional and national science fairs, top students are selected from millions, all who have demonstrated their knowledge of science and engineering to further their understanding of the world and improve the way we work and live. From May 12 to 17, 2019, more than 1,800 young scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs and makers will come to Phoenix to share their projects and compete for approximately $5 million in awards and scholarships.
Intel believes that young people are the key to future innovation. In addition to collaborating with Society for Science & the Public on the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair for more than 20 years, a commitment that continues through 2019, Intel has invested millions in education initiatives over the past

New Superconducting Film Resists a Magnet’s Power to Thwart It
To Professor Joseph Falson, electrons are like exotic supercars and his lab wants to build the racetrack. In Falson’s analogy, he likens that to driving the supercar down a cobblestone street that limits its speed. “Our job is not to make the supercar, it’s just to make the highway,” he says. The problem for those who seek to study superconductivity and eventually make practical use of it is that, so far, it has been realized only at ultracold temperatures no warmer than -70 degrees Celsius. “There is a very strong push to realize room-temperature superconductivity—it is one of the holy grails of science,” Falson says, “because then you are going to employ these materials in motors or transmission lines, and the loss would be significantly less. It would revolutionize society.” [Caltech story]
