(NASDAQ: GUID), maker of EnCase®, software for digital investigations and endpoint data security, today announced it has funded a program at Caltech to support data security research using advanced anomaly science.Discoveries will be published and used by Caltech and Guidance Software to enhance data breach detection and incident response capabilities.“Hackers are relentless. Breaches of major corporate or government data centers are on the rise to the tune of billions of dollars in losses per year,” said Michael Harris, Chief Marketing Officer of Guidance Software. “Our industry is facing a massive labor shortage of cybersecurity specialists. To address this shortfall, we are working with data scientists at Caltech, one of the most respected research universities in the world, to use anomaly detection, complex event processing, and machine learning to help us thwart these breaches and reduce the damage to taxpayers and corporate profits.”The joint program will be run out of Caltech’s new Center for Data-driven Discovery, in collaboration with NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). The Center was established for the advancement of data-intensive, computationally enabled science and technology. This research will be conducted under the direction of principal scientist Julian Bunn and professor emeritus Mani Chandy, who have developed algorithms and processes to detect anomalous patterns in data sets used in critical areas such as earthquake prediction and now in the detection of advanced malware and their polymorphic variants.Timely and effective breach detection of modern threats requires a scientific approach based on machine learning and statistical models. The most common ways to deal with data security issues is through the use of signatures, blacklists or shared threat intelligence. These traditional approaches leave organizations open to the risk of unknown or zero-day malware, which can only be found by focusing on detection of anomalous or atypical behavior that may indicate unauthorized access to sensitive data.“We are thrilled to be working with Guidance Software on such an important initiative,” said Karina Edmonds, Executive Director for Corporate Sponsorships at Caltech. “Our institute is focused on applying science to expand human knowledge and benefit society through research. This work to solve for breach detection and malware discovery is consistent with our mission.”About California Institute of TechnologyThe California Institute of Technology (Caltech) is a world-renowned science and engineering research and education institution, where extraordinary faculty and students seek answers to complex questions, discover new knowledge, lead innovation, and transform our future. Caltech’s 124-acre campus is located in Pasadena, California. Visit: http://www.caltech.edu/About Center for Data-driven DiscoveryThe central focus of CD3 is methodologies for handling and analysis of large and complex data sets, in facilitating the data-to-discovery process. It is about applications of data-driven computing in various scientific domains, such as biology, physics, astronomy, geophysics, etc. CD3 also serves as a catalyst for new collaborations and projects between different scientific disciplines, and between the campus and JPL. We are especially interested in the sharing and transfer of methodologies, where the solutions from one field can be reapplied in another one.For more information about CD3, visit: http://cd3.caltech.edu/index.htmlAbout Guidance SoftwareGuidance Software, Inc.

Clayton Kershaw takes a rare walk on the wild side in Dodgers’ loss to Marlins

first_imgLOS ANGELES — Corey Seager didn’t have his driver’s license yet. Cody Bellinger hadn’t started high school.So they knew they had seen something unusual – Clayton Kershaw walking six batters in a game.“Yeah, that’s a first for me,” Seager said.“Definitely rare,” Bellinger said. Whicker: Dustin May yet another example of the Dodgers’ eye for pitching “He really didn’t have a feel for the curveball tonight and that fastball command, slider command was sort of in and out for Clayton. But he was one out away from going five scoreless.”Kershaw had stranded eight baserunners in the first four innings and the Marlins were hitless in five at-bats with the bases loaded. But Miguel Rojas ended the bobbing and weaving by Kershaw with a three-run home run in the fifth – after Kershaw had walked back-to-back batters with two outs.REHAB PROGRESSInjured players Justin Turner, Logan Forsythe and Tom Koehler will all go to Arizona and continue their rehabs at Camelback Ranch when the Dodgers leave on their 11-game, 10-day, two-country trip this weekend.Turner has begun taking dry swings (swinging a bat without contacting a baseball), a significant step forward in his recovery from a fractured left wrist suffered on March 19.Forsythe said he tried doing some light throwing at the beginning of this week but there was still discomfort in his right shoulder.“We just tested it out. It didn’t go well,” Forsythe said. “We gave it a couple more days (of rest). It’s already feeling better than it was.”Related Articles Dodgers’ Dave Roberts says baseball’s unwritten rules ‘have changed, should change’ Dodgers’ hot-hitting Corey Seager leaves game with back injury Rare indeed. Kershaw matched his career-high with six walks in five innings of Wednesday’s loss to the Miami Marlins. He hadn’t given out that many free passes in a game since April 7, 2010 in Pittsburgh, the first start in his third big-league season.They came in unusual bunches – back-to-back twice with two outs in the inning – and Kershaw offered no explanation after the game for what caused such uncharacteristic struggles.“I don’t know. I really don’t know,” he said. “The first inning was good. Just didn’t go well from there.”In fact, Kershaw struck out the side on 14 pitches (nine strikes) in the first inning. By the end of the third inning, though, he had matched his previous season total in walks (three) on his way to throwing 85 pitches just to get through four innings.“He just couldn’t get into a rhythm and it seemed like he was laboring his entire outing,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “Really couldn’t find that rhythm and was just out of sync.center_img Dodgers’ Justin Turner looking rejuvenated on defense Dodgers bench slumping Cody Bellinger for a day Forsythe is expected to start a throwing program this weekend in Arizona, but Roberts acknowledged it could be some time before Forsythe is ready to return. He is eligible to come off the DL at any point now.“For me, he’s got to be able to throw to bases and come back and throw at a high volume. He’s not there yet,” Roberts said.Roberts said he also expects Forsythe to go on a minor-league injury-rehab assignment of no fewer than four or five games before he returns.Koehler, meanwhile, has been cleared to start a throwing program when he gets to Arizona on Friday. The right-hander has been shut down since March 2 when he was diagnosed with an anterior capsule strain in his pitching shoulder.Because he has been unable to throw for eight weeks, Koehler said the throwing program will start from scratch as if he were coming off an offseason without throwing. How long it will take to build up to game readiness from that point is an unknown.“I have a date in my mind. They have a date in theirs,” Koehler said of the Dodgers’ training staff. “They’re not the same. But they’re not that far apart and I’d be happy with either one.”FONT TRADEDTwo days after designating him for assignment, the Dodgers traded right-hander Wilmer Font to the Oakland A’s for Class-A left-hander Logan Salow.The PCL Pitcher of the Year last year with Oklahoma City, Font made the Dodgers’ season-opening bullpen based mainly on the fact that he was out of options. It didn’t go well. Font took two losses in extra-inning games, posted an 11.32 ERA in six appearances and gave up five home runs in 10-1/3 innings.Salow, 23, was Oakland’s sixth-round draft pick out of the University of Kentucky last year. In the Class-A Midwest League this year, Salow has allowed one earned run on one hit and two walks in 5-2/3 innings over four relief appearances while striking out eight.UP NEXTThe Dodgers are off Thursday.Dodgers LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (3-0, 1.99 ERA) at Giants LHP Derek Holland (0-3, 4.98 ERA), Friday 7:15 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available) Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
