Cyber threats around the world

Recently, there have been plenty of Ransomware attack reports. Due to these Ransomware attacks high-profile companies and business are affected some of them even got shut down. Over the last few years, Ransomware has become one of the largest computer threats for organizations around the world and its ever growing up. Ransomware spams the world; it is indiscriminate in its victims and no interaction with it, because it runs in a handful of seconds from, spreads in organizations and locks their data and computers.

What is Ransomware?

Malwares that causes inaccessibility of data by performing encryption of confidential data and files or by locking the system are called as ransomware. These ransomware creators demand certain amount of ransom money for the decrypting of confidential data and files or for unlocking the system. Even after paying the ransom there is no assurance of confidential data access for the victim. Ransoms are demanded in terms of Bitcoins or physical money or may be something from physical resources.

Electronics and Communication Engineering and Make in India Policy

With the demand for electronic hardware expected to rise rapidly to US$400 billion by 2020, India has the potential to become an electronic manufacturing hub. The government is targeting to achieve net zero imports of electronics by 2020 by creating a level playing field and providing an enabling environment. In fact, in the next decade demand for engineers is expected to grow by 11 percent to meet the requirement of Make in India Initiative. At this juncture, a degree in engineering offers immense opportunity, if you choose top universities for B.Tech degree. In view of this, JK Lakshmipat University (JKLU) has come up with a new Cluster Innovation Centre offering a four-year B.Tech. programme in Electronics and Communication Engineering to produce industry ready professionals.

Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering, JKLU has signed a MoU with Texas Instruments to set up Texas Instruments Innovation Center (TIIC) under TI University Program to have a greater hand on experience in technologies related to Embedded systems, Ultra Low Power Applications, Analog System Design and Internet of Things (IOT).

Management Education: Role of Educational Institutions in Nurturing Creativity

Every single individual is gifted with the innate quality of creativity. Creative thinking remains the most important factor in defining the uniqueness of every single mind. The organizations survive and thrive on the uniqueness of its people’s creative thinking as everything is imitable except individual’s ability to think critically and creatively.

In this context the role of academia is critical, which happens to be the source of providing the best talent to the industry. The key role of education lies in imparting purposeful knowledge to the students and hones their ability to think creatively as “creative minds are incubators of best ideas”. Education is the “Seed” that is embedded in students, and needs to be nurtured with time.

Figure 1. Smart devices connected through internet to each other.

On June 22, 2009, Kevin Ashton introduced a new term “The Internet of Things” (IOT) which has revolutionized the field of electronics engineering. The IOT is a network of smart devices (Fig. 1) that can communicate through internet with other devices/users at remote locations. The applications may vary from pervasive control, health monitoring systems, industrial process control, smart agriculture, food preservation and storage, home security system, smart grid, smart supply chain and many other applications. Overall, the technology facilitates sophisticated living for mankind.  Typical architecture of the IOT network is shown in Fig. 2. The sensors collect data from the surroundings and send it to the internet through gateways, hubs or protocols. Various types of middleware like data distribution service (DDS), Zigbee, RFID, Message Queue Telemetry Transport (MQTT) and others are used to transport data from sensors to the internet. The data is processed using cloud/fog computing. The processed data may be used at remote for generating alarms or controlling actuators for necessary actions. Continue reading

Scope of B.Tech Computer Science Engineering with IBM specialization

“The industry doesn’t give you what you want in your mind;
it gives you what you demand with your actions.”

B.Tech Computer Science Engineering To fulfill the raising demands of skilled professionals, JK Lakshmipat University has acknowledged the need of the industry by collaborating with IBM’s technical team to begin specialization courses in engineering.
