TechNewsWorld: Quantum Tech Could Secure the Cloud Through ‘Blind’ Data Processing

In addition to providing greater security, blind quantum computing might help cut costs for law enforcement agencies, which need to store vast amounts of data.

“A number of law enforcement agencies have been researching cloud computing as a way to reduce the costs of maintaining vast quantities of digital evidence, but security has been a major consideration,” Darren Hayes, CIS program chair, told TechNewsWorld. “Quantum security may quell their fears.”

TechNewsWorld: “Lawyers Smack Sony’s Hand as It Reaches for Hotz’s Hard Drive”

Pace professor Darren Hayes is quoted in another TechNewsWorld article. He’s increasingly turned to for expertise and comments in areas from computer security and forensics to mobile safety. His views include a legal opinion on a constitutional right “to read anonymously, and case law shows that this right extends to the right to online privacy.”

Pace professor Darren Hayes is quoted in two TechNewsWorld articles. He’s increasingly turned to for expertise and comments in areas from computer security and forensics to mobile safety. In the article, “Lawyers Smack Sony’s Handas It Reaches for Hotz’s Hard Drive”, TechNewsWorld reports that his views include a legal opinion on a constitutional right “to read anonymously, and case law shows that this right extends to the right to online privacy.”

The second TechNewsWorld article Hayes is quoted in, “The Chinese Government’s Gremlins in Google’s Works”, features Hayes’ expertise on computer security yet again as he offers his knowledge of the internet restrictions in China:

“There are so many restrictions in China, from blocked websites like BBC News, to filtered searches,” Pace University’s Hayes told TechNewsWorld. “One Harvard study estimated that 18,000 websites are blocked from within mainland China.”

Even heavily censored Baidu, China’s largest search engine, isn’t clean enough for the Chinese government. Last month, government officials started Panguso, a government-sponsored search firm devoid of controversial references.

“At the end of the day, the Chinese government probably feels that they could simply set up their own email system, implement greater control of email traffic, in a similar fashion to how China has successfully developed their own popular search engines,” Hayes explained.

Some of the earlier articles Darren Hayes has been featured in include The ExaminerNieman WatchdogThe New Yorker blog,Government Executive MagazineTechNewsWorldFlint JournalPOLITICO’S Morning Defense, and CNN.

The New Yorker blog, Investor’s Business Daily and others: “IBM’s Watson Aims Far Beyond ‘Jeopardy’ Matchup”

Professor Darren Hayes is quoted in multiple articles about a Jeopardy game show which tests man against machine (IBM’S Watson supercomputer). Hayes showcases his knowledge of homeland security and computer forensics.

From the Investor’s Business Daily (Investors.com) article:

Darren Hayes, computer information systems program chairman at New York’s Pace University, adds national defense to the list. Hayes is not connected with IBM or Watson, but based on his expertise in computer forensics and homeland security, he says the technology could significantly assist in that arena.

“The focus (on homeland security) has been on information gathering — license plates, credit card transactions, Internet activity, flight manifests, telephone records, bank transactions, and so on — for millions of people. Synthesizing those terabytes of information is tremendously challenging,” Hayes said, adding that Watson can pull together these vast amounts of data much faster than earlier technology.

Hayes’ knowledge and expertise was also used in The New Yorker blog, NYConvergence.com and the Seattle Weekly blog.

Since December, Hayes has been sought after by multiple media, from CNN and Fox News to Government Executive Magazine, for views on other topics including the security of federal computer systems and Wikileaks.
