Hit the Ground Running: Wasm Snapshots for Fast Startup

Don’t make your users wait while your Wasm module initializes itself! Wizer instantiates your WebAssembly module, executes its initialization functions, and then snapshots the initialized state out into a new, pre-initialized WebAssembly module. Now you can use this new module to hit the ground running, without waiting for any of that first-time initialization code to complete. This talk will cover the design and implementation of Wizer; discuss its performance characteristics and the scenarios in which it excels and when it isn’t the right tool; and finally, in the process of doing all that, we’ll take a closer look at what makes up the guts of a WebAssembly module: memories, globals, tables, etc.

How This Cybersecurity Startup Is Using Machine Learning

The COVID pandemic has massively escalated the surge of cyberattacks and data breaches despite having robust security controls, software, and solutions abundantly available in the market. A lot of this could be attributed to the vulnerability businesses offer the cybercriminals to take advantage of the situation quickly. While the conventional cybersecurity approach has benefited many, having cybersecurity without cyber-intelligence and necessary awareness can put the security professionals off-guarded to more complicated and novel threats.

Furthermore, with limited cybersecurity resources, businesses need to prioritise their efforts to strengthen cyber posture effectively; however, many organisations do not have an anchor point or a guiding principle, to begin with. With cyber-intelligence inputs missing from cybersecurity capabilities like incident management, vulnerability management, risk assessment and brand monitoring, businesses end up running their security practice in silos instead of an integrated approach.

And, thus, in an attempt to revolutionise the cyber threat visibility and intelligence market, CYFIRMA, a cyber analytics startup assists businesses to understand the relevance of the current threat landscape. Not only it provides insights on threat actors and indicators, emerging threats and digital risks, but also automatically applies intelligence into cyber posture management. To dig deeper, Analytics India Magazine got in touch with the chairman and CEO of the company, Kumar Ritesh, to understand how the company uses a predictive intelligence-driven approach to discover cyber threats.

The Novice's Guide To Side-Hustles

I don’t know about you but in my view, work culture seems to have taken a 360- degree turn since the time I got into the workforce in 2012. For years before that, I saw people stay in the same job for years.

They often left their comfort zones and hometowns to immigrate to new cities and countries in search of that one perfect opportunity — in which they then stayed all the way till retirement. Say for my father and many other relatives who stayed in the same job for more than 20 years.

Nothing wrong with that however the times have changed since then. In recent times people have started changing jobs more frequently owing to COVID more and more people, as well as, companies are looking for gig workers and contractors.
