Maughan wants to see a World Cup of Cyber, building on edu-sector comps. “It’s got to be as interesting as watching poker on TV.”

via TweetDeck

So US DHS seems to call Internet of Things (IoT) “Cyber Physical Systems” (CPSSEC).

Their data repository (IMPACT, formerly PREDICT) has a petabyte of network datq “legally collected… no PII” for researchers to ussc
