Financial gain trumps espionage as top motivator in cyber attacks: Report

Posted on by

first_imgThe report found that 86 percent of breaches were for money, not for purposes of spying. Credential theft, phishing and compromising business emails caused 67 percent of the cyber attacks. As more businesses moved to web-based solutions, so did hackers. According to the report, breaches on web and cloud applications rose to 43 percent, double the previous year. Companies like Facebook Inc and Salesforce have extended working remotely to at least the rest of the year, with more businesses expected to follow suit. Verizon Business Group CEO Tami Erwin said the “digital transformation” to the work-from-home model during the coronavirus pandemic has presented a number of security red flags. “A lot of people ended up sending workers to work from home without really thinking through what were some of the security elements in the future,” Erwin told Reuters. “I think employees working from home are probably more vulnerable to attacks.” Erwin said businesses can protect themselves from cyber attacks by keeping employees educated on phishing and other fraudulent tactics to access sensitive information.Topics : Money trumped spying as the top motivator for data breaches last year, according to Verizon’s annual report on cyber crimes published on Tuesday. About nine out of 10 breaches were financially motivated, based on an examination of more than 32,000 incidents and nearly 4,000 confirmed break-ins in 81 countries, the report said. Verizon Business 2020 Data Breach Investigations Report found that confirmed data breaches doubled from the prior year. As the coronavirus pandemic has forced people indoors, cyber attacks on businesses are expected to climb. last_img read more

China offers farmers cash to give up wildlife trade

Posted on by

first_imgA civet cat — the animal believed to have carried Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) to humans in another coronavirus outbreak nearly two decades ago — is worth 600 yuan.Neighboring Jiangxi province has also released documents on plans to help farmers dispose of animals and financial aid.The state-run Jiangxi Daily newspaper reported last week that the province has more than 2,300 licensed breeders, mostly rearing wild animals for food.Their animals are worth about 1.6 billion yuan ($225 million), the report said.Both Jiangxi and Hunan border Hubei, the province where the coronavirus first emerged in December.Animal rights group Humane Society International (HSI) said Hunan and Jiangxi are “major wildlife breeding provinces”, with Jiangxi seeing a rapid expansion of the trade over the last decade.Revenues from breeding reached 10 billion yuan in 2018, it said.HSI China policy specialist Peter Li told AFP that similar plans should be rolled out across the country.But he cautioned that Hunan’s proposals leave room for farmers to continue breeding exotic creatures as long as the animals are not sent to food markets.The province’s plan also does not include many wild animals bred for fur, traditional Chinese medicine or entertainment.Li said Chinese authorities are nevertheless moving in the right direction.”In the past 20 years, a lot of people have been telling the Chinese government to buy out certain wildlife breeding operations, for example bear farming,” he said.”This is the first time that the Chinese government actually decided to do it, which opens a precedent… [for when] other production needs to be phased out.” The deadly coronavirus — first reported in the central Chinese city of Wuhan — is widely believed to have passed from bats to people before spreading worldwide.Two central provinces have outlined details of a buyout program to help farmers transition to alternative livelihoods.Hunan on Friday set out a compensation scheme to persuade breeders to rear other livestock or produce tea and herbal medicines.Authorities are offering to pay 120 yuan ($16) per kilogram of cobra, king rattlesnake or rat snake, while a kilogram of bamboo rat will fetch 75 yuan. Topics :center_img Farmers in China are being offered cash to quit breeding exotic animals as pressure grows to crack down on the illegal wildlife trade that has been blamed for the coronavirus outbreak.Authorities have for the first time pledged to buy out breeders in an attempt to curb the practice, animal rights activists say.China has in recent months banned the sale of wild animals for food, citing the risk of diseases spreading to humans, but the trade remains legal for other purposes including research and traditional medicine.last_img read more

Jadestone takes over Stag operatorship

Posted on by

first_imgAustralia’s Quadrant Energy has transferred operatorship of the Stag oil field, offshore Australia, to Jadestone Energy, formerly known as Mitra Energy. In addition, the registered title has passed to Jadestone from Quadrant and Santos, Jadestone said on Monday.The company previously completed its acquisition of the one hundred percent interest in the Stag oil field from sellers, Quadrant and Santos, on November 11, 2016. The transfer of operatorship and registered title has now occurred after completion of the NOPSEMA, (the Australian offshore regulator) regulatory processes and approvals.The field is located in block WA-15-L, 60 kilometers offshore Western Australia in the Carnarvon Basin at a water depth of approximately 47 meters. It has been in production since 1998.Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Paul Blakeley, said, “This is a major milestone for us in delivering our objectives of building a long lived and sustainable business, moving from an exploration-led business to one centered around development and production, and which started with the Stag field acquisition late last year.“We are excited about releasing the full value that we have identified in the asset, maximizing recovery and sustaining production for many years, offering significant benefit for our shareholders. I want to take the opportunity to thank both Quadrant and Santos, as sellers, for their support to the process of operatorship transfer, and to Quadrant especially for its ongoing attention to the safe operations of Stag whilst regulatory approval processes have been running their course.”Mark Robertson, General Manager, Australia said: “The teams offshore and onshore are well prepared for this moment and extremely excited to be in a position to takeover operatorship. Everyone involved in this journey has worked tirelessly to ensure we have a smooth and safe transition and they should all be proud in reaching this point.”last_img read more

Damen Presents Sandy – Free Dredge Calculator

Posted on by

first_imgImage source: DamenDredge projects are tendered around the globe on a daily basis. Consequently, dredging contractors have to make new calculations, involving various production parameters, when preparing their project quotations. Damen has introduced an online dredge job calculator to unburden contractors of this time-consuming, and therefore costly, tasks.For every dredging job, whether it is a maintenance dredging, sand dredging or capital dredging project, the local government concerned will present a public tender.In submitting their offers, contractors will then put in a considerable amount of effort – mostly in calculating the estimated production of each different job site. It is imperative that these calculations are accurate as it is the production that defines what dredging equipment is required, said Damen.“Damen’s new dredging calculation tool assists contractors with what is typically a long-drawn-out process. With just a few mouse clicks on the straightforward online platform, known as Sandy, the contractor enters the defining characteristics of the dredging job at hand,” the company said in its release.According to Damen, the result not only provides detailed advice on which cutter suction dredger should be mobilized, but also includes which options are complementary to the specific project. This can include supplementary equipment such as spud carriages, booster stations and anchor booms.Sandy was designed by Lennart Koning, Dredging Production Specialist at Damen Dredging Equipment.In explaining the motivations behind the development, he said: “Each dredging job is calculated on dredge production – and Sandy will help determine that valuable production information. With the input from any tender, a contractor will know what dredger to use within minutes. Moreover, by simply adding an option, such as a spud carriage for instance, the contractor can see the potential efficiency gain immediately.”Sandy is based on a full size calculation model, drawing on an extensive database that performs all the necessary calculations and taking maneuvering into account.last_img read more

Kalinago people to debate on the presence of Afro-Dominicans in their community

first_imgLocalNews Kalinago people to debate on the presence of Afro-Dominicans in their community by: – September 21, 2011 92 Views   4 comments Sharing is caring! Kalinago Chief Mr. Garnet Joseph. The Indigenous People of Dominica are in limbo regarding whether Afro-Dominicans should be allowed to reside in the Kalinago territory.They will hold discussions on Thursday of this week to decide whether this law should be kept or whether it should be changedKalinago Chief Garnet Joseph says the law of the land indicates that Afro-Dominicans cannot reside permanently in the territory.He says however, while laws should be upheld, they ought to be reviewed periodically.“The law of the land says persons who do not normally reside in the territory cannot reside there. This has raised concerns over the years because it is felt that if Kalinago go out and marry another person’s outside of their race, then they should move from the reserve. It’s a misunderstanding of the situation but this is what the law says and it should be held,” he said.He says the laws are geared at protecting the Kalinago people from bad influences.Joseph says it is believed that the introduction of Afro-Dominicans in the Kalinago Territory could negatively impact the lives of the indigenous people.“How much can you let in is a big question and what impacts it will have on the community. It is felt that some of the people coming in do not bring in much. They do not have skills, they don’t want to do manual work and they bring hard drugs in the territory. It is felt that this is having a negative impact on the indigenous people,” he said.The discussion will take place from 7pm at the Bataca Community Hall.Dominica Vibes News Sharecenter_img Share Share Tweetlast_img read more

Ireland ‘will stop shedding stars’

Posted on by

first_img Porterfield hopes Tuesday’s game at Malahide, which attracted a sell-out crowd, will merely be a foretaste for many big occasions to come. He said: “This is what I always wanted growing up as a kid. To have 10,000 people, to be playing in front of your home crowd in Dublin against England – that is what every Irish cricketer wants. That is where we are going. “We fly in from England, the county lads. You get into a taxi at the airport and the taxi man is having a conversation with you about cricket. “Five or six years ago that might not have been the case. Everyone is talking about this game. “You have got that buzz floating around now. That shows where we are going and how cricket is perceived in Ireland now. “It is definitely a growing sport and that culture is definitely there.” Former Ireland fast bowler Rankin was handed his England one-day international debut in the RSA Challenge match between the two countries in Dublin on Tuesday. Rankin, like England’s stand-in captain Eoin Morgan, switched allegiance to further his career in a country which can offer Test cricket. Ireland captain William Porterfield hopes Boyd Rankin will be one of the last Irishmen to line up against his own country. But as the game in Ireland advances both on and off the pitch, Porterfield hopes players will not feel the need to move in the not-too-distant future. The 28-year-old Warwickshire batsman said: “Over the last few years we have lost Moggy and lost Boyd. “It is frustrating if you lose your best players but credit to ourselves for producing those players – that is the positive we have to take out of it. “As long as we are producing those players and ticking boxes, and showing we can host events like this, what we are capable of in Ireland – hopefully with that extra revenue, and everything like that, players won’t necessarily have to take that step to go and play for England. “To have international cricket on your own doorstep – that is hopefully what a lot of youngsters will see and in the future won’t have any decision to make. “At the minute Boyd is in that position where he has had to make that decision, but in a couple of years’ time I hope no-one will have to make that decision, maybe we’ll be playing a Test match. You never know.” Ireland’s case for Test cricket is advancing with its domestic structure having improved and a growing number of players proving attractive to English counties. The profile of the sport has also grown considerably since Ireland’s impressive showing at the 2007 World Cup, upon which the national team have continued to build.

Coquelin aiming to emulate Matic

Posted on by

first_img The Gunners tackle the leaders aiming to eat into their 10-point advantage at the top of the table following last weekend’s 1-0 victory over third-placed Manchester United. Coquelin was drafted back into the Arsenal squad from a loan spell at Charlton in December, since when the 23-year-old has gone on to cement his place in shielding the back four, and has been instrumental during a run of 21 victories from the last 25 matches. The Frenchman, though, knows he will be up against one of the best defensive midfielders around when Serbian Matic aims to close out another triumph for Jose Mourinho’s men. “What he has done is unbelievable. At Chelsea he is one of the main men, so credit to him. He has had a great season and is a great player. It is always good to play against players like that,” Coquelin said on Arsenal Player. “It is an important position and Matic has shown how important he is – that is what I am trying to do as well for Arsenal. “The fans want a good defensive midfielder – they know it is important for the team.” Arsenal will be out to beat Chelsea for the first time since October 2011, when Robin van Persie netted a hat-trick in a remarkable 5-3 victory at Stamford Bridge. Wenger, though, has every confidence his side can again answer another stern examination. “From a good run of form you get a good belief and we have a good solidarity,” he said. “We know that we have passed many tests recently where we were questioned. This season is the first time we have won away from home against Manchester City [in a while]. “So we have passed many tests and we have another on Sunday that we want to pass.” Wenger added: “Chelsea have been very, very efficient on counter-attacks, very efficient on set-pieces as well, so to nullify their strengths will be important.” Francis Coquelin is confident he can show his potential as Arsenal’s long-term midfield enforcer when he goes head to head with “unbelievable” Nemanja Matic in Sunday’s Barclays Premier League showdown with Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Contract may not save me – Bruce

Posted on by

first_img Bruce added: ” I know how difficult it would be for everyone for take. “Thankfully, we’ve put things in place as club that it won’t be one of those Armageddon scenarios, that the club will be able to move forward. “We have got a team that is capable and we have proved that with some of our results. I don’t give anything up very easily. Let’s just bring on the moment and give it a go.” Bruce has no new injury concerns but must once again decide whether to risk Nikica Jelavic from the start as the Croatian continues to make a slow recovery from a knee injury. Jelavic came on as a second-half substitute against Burnley but could make a rare appearance on the outset, while David Meyler is also pushing for a recall. Mohamed Diame and Gaston Ramirez are ruled out for the rest of the campaign. Steve Bruce has admitted the new three-year contract he signed in March is no guarantee he will still be Hull boss at the start of next season. Press Association Bruce said: “The owners wanted me to stay – they were convinced we were going to be a Premier League team and I think that’s why they rewarded me with a new contract. “I haven’t really thought of myself just yet but I’ve got no thoughts of quitting or walking away – nothing like that. “It’s for others to decide. I’ve got huge respect for the owner and I’m totally disappointed for him and the supporters but it is not over yet. I will tell you in a couple of weeks because it is out of my hands.” However, in an interview with the Daily Telegraph on Friday evening, Hull owner Assem Allam claimed he had no interest in replacing Bruce should the worst happen. “Maybe that makes me unusual among owners, but I’m not a football man, I’m a businessman. I still think I’ve got the right manager, he is a very good manager and I hope he stays if we go down,” he said. Bruce admitted he would be “totally devastated” if the Tigers did fail to beat the drop having rallied recently with consecutive wins over Crystal Palace and Liverpool. Last Saturday’s home defeat to doomed Burnley left his side firmly ensconced in the bottom three with Spurs then a daunting final-day clash with Manchester United still to come. But Bruce insisted in the event of the worst-case scenario Hull would be well equipped to mount a challenge for an immediate return to the top-flight – whether he was in charge or not. Bruce penned the deal when the Tigers sat 15th in the Barclays Premier League, five points clear of the drop zone and fully expecting to extend their top-flight stay. But as his side head to Tottenham on Saturday knowing defeat could all but consign them to relegation, Bruce acknowledged the drop could leave his future uncertain. last_img read more
