Givetvis kommer fokus ligga på Transportstyrelsens outsourcing till IBM.Men det ska även göras en mer generell granskning av de säkerhetsbrister som finns hos myndigheterna.– Det är förstås inte outsourcing i sig som är problemet utan hur outsourcingen genomförs och följs upp och om man då har ett fokus på informationssäkerhet eller inte.Jag har ingen närmare kunskap om Transportstyrelsens informationssäkerhetsarbete, men det är ju känt genom flera rapporter från Riksrevisionen att detta arbete generellt är eftersatt inom stat och kommun, säger han och utvecklar:– Om man redan från början har svagt informationssäkerhetsfokus så kommer detta förstås att följa med i outsourcingen.Bland de föreslagna åtgärderna i regeringens tilltänkta utredning finns ett förslag om att sätta skarpare gränser för vad som är möjligt att outsourca, där Post- och Telestyrelsen ska få i uppdrag att ta fram en modell för it-drift med högt säkerhetsklassad information.

Scandals may capture headlines, but they haven't stopped Samsung from selling a lot of Galaxy S8 phones.Samsung has seen significant revenue growth throughout its business over the past three months, despite ongoing scandals, and the ghost of the Galaxy Note 7 hanging over it.It’s also very confident about the near future, trumpeting the arrival of the Galaxy Note 8, a series of new mid-range and low-end smartphones, plus continuing demand for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus.Through April to the end of June 2017, Samsung took $54.8 billion in revenue, with $12.8 billion coming as profit, which it says is a record breaking quarter for the company.It’s also a 72 percent increase over the first three months of 2017, and up again from the end of 2016, after the small slump it endured during the height of the Galaxy Note 7 turmoil.To put the $12 billion profit into perspective, at the end of September last year, it posted $4.5 billion in profit.

As a New York Giants fan, I can’t wait for the NFL season to start in September.There’s something amazing about watching a quarterback like Eli Manning call a play and then suddenly seeing the team perform in perfect unison (maybe not always!)to advance on the field toward the end zone.As competition heats up and becomes stronger and more sophisticated, B2B marketers must begin thinking like quarterbacks — becoming smarter not only about the multi-channel plays they call and the messages they serve, but also about their definitions of success.Here’s how B2B marketers can better quarterback the team past the goal line.[Read the full article on MarTech Today.]

OK, Google, where’s the beef?Slowly, steadily and stealthily, Google has been slipping more and more mushrooms into burgers it serves to workers, while cutting back on the meat.That’s according to a new report on worker-feeding habits at the Mountain View tech giant, whose famously free employee cafeterias offer a multitude of cuisines in upscale food court style.“Google has slowly increased the percentage of mushrooms in the patty from 20 percent to 50 percent,” said a Fast Company report.The surreptitious substitution is part of a broader effort to fill Googlers’ bellies with more plant-based foods and less meat, according to the report.“You can’t expect everyone to start loving lentils day one,” Scott Giambastiani, Google’s global food program chef, told Fast Company.

Grab is gearing up to throttle your business in Southeast Asia, with help from your nemesis.The Singapore-based ride-hailing service, in its latest funding round, will receive an investment of up to $2 billion from tech giant Softbank and from Chinese ride hailer Didi Chuxing, Grab said in a statement Monday.Didi became known as an Uber slayer after it bought out Uber's business in China last year.With more than 600 million people, accounting for almost 10 percent of the world's population, Southeast Asia is becoming an important market for businesses.The region could be a key one for Uber, after its U-turn in China and its stall-outs in other parts of Asia, including bans in Taiwan (although it made a return in April) and Macau.Grab is Uber's biggest rival in the region, where it says it has a market share of 71 percent in private vehicle hailing.

Apple is expected to launch a redesigned and desirable version of the iPhone this fall, and some analysts hope that a sales "supercycle" it could spur would turn Apple into the first public company worth $1 trillion.One question is when the "iPhone 8" or "iPhone Pro" would go on sale.New iPhones typically go on sale in September, which means that a few days get included in Apple's third calendar quarter.But some analysts have said the iPhone 8 may not start shipping until October or later.In 2015, for example, Apple sold 13 million iPhones in the first weekend the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus were available.So when Apple reports its earnings on August 1, it will give a huge hint about when the iPhone 8 is going on sale.

Consumers will save up to £40bn thanks to a revolution in the way electricity is made, used and stored, the government says.New rules published today will make it easier for people to generate their own power with solar panels, store it in car batteries and sell it to the national grid.Phil Taylor, professor in energy systems at Newcastle University, told Radio 4's Today programme these technologies are already available but are "expensive" and not yet "proven" to work on a large scale.

Lyft announced today it was opening its own self-driving car division in Palo Alto called Level 5, and its first cars will hit the streets of Boston by the end of this year.According to David Vincent, Lyft’s head of autonomy, self-driving cars won’t replace its drivers:When a passenger requests a ride that a self-driving car can complete, we may send one to complete the trip.If that person needs to go somewhere self-driving cars are unable to navigate, or their needs call for a different level of service, they will have a driver.After the Boston test, the company hopes to expand to other cities.Lyft’s primary competition, Uber, has had a bumpy year where its autonomous vehicles are concerned — it’s currently in a legal battle with Waymo over self-driving car tech allegedly stolen by a former Waymo employee.

You shall have a phishy on a little dishy when the hack comes inForeign students looking to experience the stochastic joys of a year at Newcastle University in England are being warned that phishers are after their cash – using an unusually well-crafted attack.The raiders set up a very realistic-looking fake website proclaiming itself to be Newcastle International University, complete with pages of well-laid-out information.The URL isn't that of the actual university site, but if you're a student unfamiliar with the center of learning, it would be easy to be fooled."We have been made aware of an unofficial website which is fraudulently using the Newcastle University brand and accepting credit card payments to apply for courses," the university said."The website Newcastle International University is in no way affiliated with the University and we are advising anyone who finds the website should not submit any personal details."

Samsung just made the worst-kept secret in technology official.It has send out invitations to an Unpacked event in New York City on August 23rd.The invite doesn’t technically say that it’s for the Note 8, but the giant stylus on the invite couldn’t be any more obvious if it was writing WINK WINK.From what we know so far, the Note 8 will take most of the revolutionary features from the Galaxy S8 and make them bigger.That should mean the same rounded corners, the same lack of bezel around the edges, and yes, the same fingerprint sensor located on the back.The initial reveal at the end of August confirmed with we already knew, that the Note 8 is going on sale in September.

We have heard quite a few rumors about the Bixby-powered speaker over the last month or so, which was expected to take on the Amazon Echo and Google Home, just to name a few.However, it now looks like Samsung may have had a sudden change of heart, as it might not release the device after all.According to a report by The Investor, we won’t see a Bixby-powered speaker anytime soon because Samsung doesn’t think it’s marketable at this point (ya think?).Amazon is currently dominating the global industry with a market share of over 70 percent, followed by Google, while Samsung has only just rolled out the first version of Bixby Voice to US customers.It would be hard for Samsung to compete with such established players so soon, especially with a device that basically offers the same features as its competitors with a vastly inferior voice assistant.Samsung apparently also doesn’t want to focus on just the South Korean market, as it is just too small and won’t bring enough money into its pocket.

Often dozens of different vendors run the same third-party code across an array of products.Or, as one security company's researchers recently found, a vulnerability in a single internet-connected security camera can expose a flaw that leaves thousands of different models of device at risk.On Tuesday, the internet-of-things-focused security firm Senrio revealed a hackable flaw it's calling "Devil's Ivy," a vulnerability in a piece of code called gSOAP widely used in physical security products, potentially allowing faraway attackers to fully disable or take over thousands of models of internet-connected devices from security cameras to sensors to access-card readers."The scope and scale of this thing is arguably as big as anything we’ve been concerned about with computer security in recent history," Tanji says.Moore, a well-known internet-of-things researcher for consulting firm Atredis Partners who reviewed Senrio's findings, points out that the attack would have to be configured separately for each vulnerable device or application, and requires sending two full gigabytes of data to a target, what he describes as a "silly" amount of bandwidth."This vulnerability highlights how supply chain code is shared across the Internet of Things," he writes.

VR game company Survios’ Raw Data became the first VR-exclusive game to reach 1 on Steam’s Global Top Sellers list.“The question I always get is, ‘What is a numbers and statistical learning nerd doing in marketing?“I feel like I’m on a personal journey to close the gap between the hype and the truly important underpinnings of the current AI revolution, and that is data.”Originally an algorithmic trader in Chicago, using algorithms and data processing to make money, and then a backend anti-fraud engineer at TrialPay, Tamura found that the marketing world was not embracing the potential of the kind of powerful algorithms that he was creating — and learning from the most comprehensive, up-to-date data possible.At Treasure Data, Tamura focuses on taking games like Survios’s Raw Data, the first VR-exclusive game to reach number one on Steam’s global top sellers list, to the top.“We go wherever interesting, relevant, and new data is being generated,” Tamura explains.

British actress Jodie Whittaker was named as the Thirteenth Doctor for the popular and long-running BBC sci-fi series "Doctor Who."The BBC made the casting announcement on Sunday after Roger Federer handily defeated Marin Čilić to win the Wimbledon Men's Final.Whittaker, 35, will replace Scottish actor Peter Capaldi, who has played the role since 2013.The transition from one lead actor to the next, known inside the show as a regeneration, is a hallmark of the series.Whittaker recently starred as mourning mother Beth Lattimer in the acclaimed British crime drama "Broadchurch."And "Broadchurch" is chock full of Whovian connections -- it was created by new "Doctor Who" showrunner Chris Chibnall and also starred tenth doctor David Tennant.

Whether building processors, web or mobile products; proliferation has been global whilst the innovative companies and venture investors remained local.This decentralisation is increasingly shifting startup creation to a broader populace.The Bancor Foundation has coded smart contracts into each of their tokens, allowing them to forgo being exchange traded.They raised a record (at the time, read: last month) $153 million worth of ether through a 3 hour token sale.Though an interesting case study, the complexity of the code and operation led to a significant attack and the subsequent theft of $60m worth of Ether and a ledger hard fork.Beyond this, the lack of regulation and oversight provides equal risk and opportunity for participants.

There are approximately 100 billion stars in the Milky Way — each one a massive ball of hydrogen and helium burning until it eventually becomes a white dwarf or explodes in a supernova.It's stunning to behold, but where stars begin are just as beautiful.This week, NASA captured not one but two celestial nurseries brimming with star formation.The Chandra and Hubble telescopes photographed a glorious giant molecular cloud W51, only 17,000 light years away from Earth.Its dense mix of hydrogen molecules and helium atoms constantly produce stars and planets.In a 20-second exposure, Chandra captured over 600 young stars glittering in the darkness.
