Enterprise Information Security


Though Information security falls under everyone's responsibility, IT function plays a crucial role in preventing Information security breaches by enhancing/implementing controls with apt technology tools and infrastructure. It is always advisable to go with Org wide third party security assessments through ISO/IEC 27001 standard to get a 360 degree view on current controls and to identify gaps that may adversely impact on organization's security controls.

We study the problem of ranking a set of items from nonactively chosen pairwise preferences where each item has feature information with it. We propose and characterize a very broad class of preference matrices giving rise to the Feature Low Rank (FLR) model, which subsumes several models ranging from the classic Bradley–Terry–Luce (BTL) (Bradley and Terry 1952) and Thurstone (Thurstone 1927) models to the recently proposed blade-chest (Chen and Joachims 2016) and generic low-rank preference (Rajkumar and Agarwal 2016) models. We use the technique of matrix completion in the presence of side information to develop the Inductive Pairwise Ranking (IPR) algorithm that provably learns a good ranking under the FLR model, in a sample-efficient manner. In practice, through systematic synthetic simulations, we confirm our theoretical findings regarding improvements in the sample complexity due to the use of feature information. Moreover, on popular real-world preference learning datasets, with as less as 10% sampling of the pairwise comparisons, our method recovers a good ranking.

"We very much appreciate and support the interest in protecting domestic violence and victims of any kind of violence from further injury by having information disclosed," said Public Policy Director of the ACLU of Maryland Toni Holness. "The reality is, under our current Public Information Act, (it) gives officials broad discretion to deny a record if an investigation is pending."

"Some of the information that we get for our projects will be from books and websites, but the best information is from the people who live in each state. This is why I am writing to you," Khaled says in his letter to The Bulletin. "I am hoping that you would be willing to send me some items to help me learn more about the best things in your state. It could be things like postcards, maps, pictures, souvenirs, general information, or any other items that would be useful."
