We use the method based on expert judgments and analytic hierarchy process for information security risks assessment in a typical telecommunication network of the university. We evaluate impacts and possibility values for specific threats at the telecommunication network. We also identify some security vulnerabilities and evaluate them. We use such methods and tools as fuzzy logic, questionnaires, analytic hierarchy process, fuzzy prediction rules for risk factors evaluation. © 2016 IEEE.

Dublin, May 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Package Testing market - By Primary Material, Type, Regions - Market Size, Demand Forecasts, Industry Trends and Updates (2016-2022)" report to their offering. The Global Package Testing market is estimated to grow from $15.81 billion in 2016 to $31.44 billion by the end of 2022 at a CAGR of 12.14% for the forecasted period The packaging industry is constantly evolving with packaging becoming more than just a protective outer layer. Packaging serves as the primary face of the product and is very important in the promotion of the brand and attracting customers. Packaging is also being altered to suit the needs of the fast food consumer who are rapidly replacing traditional meals with packaged foodstuff. This has increased the need for testing the packaging of products to ensure higher shelf life and the reduction of costs normally associated with damaged goods. Packaging plays a significant part in the assurance of the quality and integrity of the product inside. It not only affects the product but also manifests itself in the end product in which the product is used. Governments across the world are implementing rigorous guidelines to ensure quality of the products. Testing is an integral part of these guidelines which makes it one of the core drivers in this market. The market is expected to register considerable growth in the APAC, Latin America and European regions. The market for package testing is still in growth stage. Consumers are now more informed than before. They are now demanding products which have better shelf life, meet regulations and norms set by different government agencies and have been procured ethically. Packaging and labelling helps increase in consumer's confidence in the product and increases the brand value of the company A business is no more entirely dependent on a country or a region. Deals are being signed across the continents and products are being sold in different regions. For such products to be transported and meet the requirements for sales, it is necessary that packaging is robust and follows certain parameters set by different agencies. Package Testing companies test packaging products by doing several tests on products like drop test, shock test, vibration test, shelf life testing to name a few. Only when a package passes through these tests, it is allowed to be shipped or used for commercial use. Products are being sourced and shipped worldwide to meet the global consumer demand. This has increased the need for durable packaging but at the same time, the push for more sustainable packaging is stronger than ever with emphasis on reducing the material used to ensure lighter cargo and decrease the ecological footprint. This has made package testing even more important as damaged or over-packaged products result in customer dissatisfaction and increased costs for retailers and manufacturers. Plastic is the most widely used packaging material with more than half of the current market share followed by paper. Metal and Glass are also widely used and tests are designed to check the packages durability, integrity, strength, shelf life and resistance to environmental factors. The integrity of a package is tested by performing various tests on it, drop, vibration and shock tests are the major ones which are mandated by the standards institutions like ASTM and ISTA. These standards are universally followed and are quite stringent in nature. Some of the major companies in package testing are DDL, Intertek, SGS, CSZ Testing Services Laboratories, CRYOPAK, Advance Packaging, Nefab, National Technical Systems, Turner Packaging and Caskadetek.

National Technical Systems, Inc. (“NTS”), the leading independent provider of environmental simulation testing, inspection, and certification solutions in the United States, is pleased to announce the completion of a new 40,000 square foot facility in Mount Prospect, Illinois. The beautiful new NTS Chicago facility significantly expands the capabilities offered to our Chicago area clients, adding EMI / EMC testing to the suite of environmental and mechanical testing previously offered from the Palatine, IL facility. Highlights of the newly constructed facility include a 5 meter semi-anechoic chamber for emissions measurements which contains a turntable and vehicle exhaust, three MIL-SPEC semi-anechoic chambers, and a reverberation chamber for HIRF (High Intensity Radiated Field) testing. The environmental and dynamic testing capabilities have also been enhanced with expanded ingress protection testing, blowing sand and dust, and extended capacity for high demand tests such as HALT (Highly Accelerated Life Testing) and vibration testing. Visitors to the October 6th Open House included the Mayor of the Village of Mount Prospect, Arlene Juracek, other civic leaders and NTS executives and board members. “We are pleased and excited to open this gorgeous new facility to our customers,” stated Vicki Panhuise, CEO of NTS, “NTS Chicago is now a full-service environmental and EMC laboratory ready to help our customers deliver products the world can trust.” For more information about the new NTS Chicago laboratory and to view time-lapse videos of the construction, visit the NTS website.

We suggested a method for quantitative information security risk assessment and management in computer networks. We used questionnaires, expert judgments, fuzzy logic and analytic hierarchy process to evaluate an impact and possibility values for specific threats. We suggested fuzzy extension of Common Vulnerability Scoring System for vulnerability assessment. Fuzzy prediction rules are used to describe expert's knowledge about vulnerabilities. © 2015 IEEE.

The paper deals with assessing energy efficiency of electric ovens supplied with unit-type releasing to be used in the thermal activation technology of vermiculite - phlogopite conglomerates. The analysis of a heat absorption process is given on the basis of the conglomerate particles moving in the conditions of heat radiation induced by an outer source and heat absorption taking place inside a special nonelectric unit on the account of inner energy accumulated by the particles.

The paper reviews data on mechanisms of calcium current and methods of its recording. The involvement of calcium ions in excitation of nerve and muscle cells and in particular in synaptic transmission processes is considered. Calcium signaling relies on voltage-dependent and ligand-gated calcium channels. The review focuses mainly on calcium currents flowing through voltage-dependent channels. The conditions evoking calcium currents, basic methods of their recordings, as well as effects of some important endogenous modulators of neuromuscular transmission are overviewed. © 2014 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.
