Centre to be established for cyber-security

The group will share information on computer security threats, according to a statement from Internet Security Systems (ISS), which said it has been selected to maintain the centre.

The project can trace its origins back to May 1998, when US President Bill Clinton instructed government agencies to form alliances with various industries to create Information Sharing and Analysis Centres (ISACs) to share information about threats to, and vulnerabilities of, each industry sector.

Following a spate of high-profile denial of service attacks on Internet companies last February, industry representatives promised "more cooperation" and the creation of an ISAC for the IT industry. Tuesday's announcement will see the fulfilment of those promises.

According to ISS, board members of the IT-ISAC will include representatives from leading IT companies including Cisco Systems, CSC, IBM, HP and Microsoft.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
