NESSUS

Nessus is a remote security scanning tool, which scans a computer and raises an alert if it discovers any vulnerabilities that malicious hackers could use to gain access to any computer you have connected to a network. It does this by running over 1200 checks on a given computer, testing to see if any of these attacks could be used to break into the computer or otherwise harm it. Nessus can be used by an administrator in charge of any computer (or group of computers) connected to the internet...

PROBLEM-BASED LEARNING FOR INTEGRATION OF NURSING THEORY AND PRACTICE

Abstract Problem-based learning (PBL) was pioneered in medical school in McMaster University, Canada in the late 1960s but has now spread to other disciplines around the world.
