Cyberbio Convergence: Characterizing the Multiplicative Threat

Event Details
Type: 
Conference
Date: 
September 17, 2019 (All day)

The cyber and biological scientific arenas are converging rapidly. While the government recognizes that the nation is vulnerable to cyber attacks and continues to invest enormous resources into their prevention, response, and recovery, it invests far less in countering biological attacks. These two areas of science and technology are beginning to converge now, making the nation increasingly unsafe and insecure. On September 17, 2019, we will convene a meeting of the Study Panel, Cyberbio Convergence: Characterizing the Multiplicative Threat to inform our continuing assessment of the biological threat, specific vulnerabilities, and overwhelming consequences.

SQL access to VistA for reporting and analytics requires two core technologies: (a) an SQL engine; and (b) mapping Fileman files to SQL tables that the SQL engine can use to access data. Although there are many SQL engines, there are few combinations of (a) and (b) that work well, and none that both work well and are free/open source software (FOSS). YottaDB is developing Octo, an SQL engine, and %VISTAOCTO, an adaptable tool, that generates an SQL Schema from Fileman tables. Both are FOSS.
