Introducing Titian The World #1 Open Science Supercomputer
  The combination of CPUs and GPUs will allow Titan and future systems to overcome power and space limitations inherent in previous generations of high-performance computers. Because they handle hundreds of calculations simultaneously, GPUs can go through many more than CPUs in a given time. Yet they draw only modestly more electricity.

Navigant: IT Security and Data Breach Report 2012
  A breach that involved personally identifiable information and other patient data was posted on the internet by a West Coast health system for nearly a year before being discovered. The records of over 31,000 patients were part of several files posted online. The patient information included names, ethnicity, race, gender, DOBs and medical data such as body mass index, blood pressure, allergies, lab results and diagnoses. The records cover patients who sought care from February 2011 – August 2011. The data was searchable online due to incorrect security settings allowing the records to be accessed using Google and other search portals. The health system set up a toll free 800 number and is providing free identity theft monitoring to those affected. As a result of this breach, the health system is facing several class action lawsuits alleging negligence and failure to comply with state medical information laws. The lawsuits are seeking over $30 million in damages as a result of this data breach.
New Titan Supercomputer Named Fastest in the World
  Titan uses a combination of traditional central processing units (CPUs) and a family of processors called graphic processing units (GPUs) that were first created for computer gaming and have a unique capacity to perform the same operation simultaneously on multiple pieces of data.
