Insider threats are one of the top security concerns facing large organizations. Current and former employees, business partners, contractors—anyone with the right level of access to a company’s data—can pose a threat. The incidence of insider threats has increased in recent years, at a significant cost to companies. Jingrui He, associate professor in the School of Information Sciences at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, has been awarded a three-year, $200,000 grant from the C3.ai Digital Transformation Institute for a new project that seeks to detect and predict insider threats.

Regenstrief Institute, Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI), the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Datavant have been honored with a 2022 FedHealthIT Innovation Award for the National COVID Cohort Collaborative (N3C) Privacy Preserving Record Linkage (PPRL). The Regenstrief, Indiana CTSI and Datavant collaboration developed processes to securely link data from different sources without patient-identifying information. PPRL protects patients’ identities while allowing the collaborative to create robust datasets that comply with HIPAA standards, while also supporting researchers seeking to answer questions related to COVID-19, its impact and its treatment and prevention.
Researchers at the Advanced Quantum Testbed at Berkeley Lab demonstrated the first three-qubit high-fidelity iToffoli native gate in a superconducting quantum information processor and in a single step. This demonstration adds a novel easy-to-implement native three-qubit logic gate for universal quantum computing.
