Photo: Nora TamHong Kong companies and financial services institutions lag behind the US and Europe in cybersecurity measures as little emphasis is placed on security from a board-level perspective, according to industry experts.He said the banking sector in Hong Kong had lagged in their uptake of cloud technology adoption.Darren Argyle, chief information security officer of UK-based financial technology firm Markit, believes that Hong Kong banks and companies fall behind the US and Europe in beefing up cybersecurity even as the number of cyberattacks have been on the rise globally.He added that companies often view security as a cost of doing business, as cyber criminals increasingly target corporations in their attacks.CEOs of financial companies are now starting to ask what technology is in place which assures that they can respond adequately during a breach, he said.One way to mitigate the skills gap in Hong Kong is for the government to invest heavily in cybersecurity and related security start-ups, thereby encouraging more Hongkongers to pursue a career in security, he said.
He and his siblings later moved in with a basketball coach to flee an abusive, alcoholic father.But Willis' remarkable story of empowerment and reinvention might not have happened this way at all.This February, Athlon ranked Willis the 22nd-best linebacker in NFL history — a plaudit that's double impressive when you consider his career lasted half as long as those of some other players."Apple's Steve Jobs Would See Himself in Tech Pioneer Eren Niazi," squawked a headline on TheStreet two years ago.As the two neighbors got to know one another more, Willis found himself impressed by Niazi's rags-to-riches story and tech-industry success.And now Willis: "It just felt like, a lot of times in my other occupation, it was all about you as an individual.

The starting salaries also reflect the sums that student developers can earn as summer interns at leading tech companies.According to a crowd-sourced report by Rodney Folz, interns can earn up to $10,400 a month, with an extra $10,000 for relocation and housing costs.Many top companies are reportedly paying between $6,000 a month Amazon and $8,000 a month Facebook , with Google $6.6k/m , Apple $6.7k/m and Microsoft $7.2k/m in-between.To be fair, a significant proportion of student developers - more than 25 percent - only expect to start on $50,000 to $70,000, and almost 20 percent expect less than $50,000 a year.According to Devpost's survey, students identified three key problems with recruiting: lack of information about desirable job opportunities; job applications that don't represent them effectively; and interviews that are stressful and unproductive.Kessler says: "There are plenty of companies who focus on the top schools, in terms of ranking and so on, but I think you're seeing a general opinion among software developers that it's not where you went to school - or, frankly, whether you went to school - but about what you've built, the experience you have, and your passions and personality."

The football season is almost over – but don t despair: as far as the FIFA franchise is concerned, it s only just beginning, with FIFA 17 certain to be announced at E3 next month.But rather than let Twitter decide, why not reward the undisputed English stars of this Premier League season – Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Jamie Vardy?With Lionel Messi s deal as the face of FIFA still to be renewed, and given that EA has been experimenting over the past few years by having different cover stars for different territories, this wish could well be granted.Personally, I endorse this, but suspect any return might be saved for the 20th anniversary of that game, in 2018.DivingThis has been a real blind spot for the FIFA series, and probably has more to do with the governing body the game gets its name from than any sense of righteousness from EA Sports.But it does seem pretty remarkable that the most realistic football video game omits a very real part of the game today, whether we like it or not.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise CEO Meg Whitman is so serious about pushing HPE into the world of corporate venture investing, that she is personally involved with the program, reports Bloomberg's Brian Womack.HPE intends to invest $100 million in 2016, its second year of its program, which HPE calls "Pathfinder," Lak Ananth, the program's managing director told Womack.And although the investment group currently employs 10 people, and expects to be at 15 later this year, this project is very much Whitman's baby.Startups have to pitch to the billionaire CEO personally at quarterly "coffees with Meg" before HPE signs off on deals.She was, for instance, personally involved in HPE's investment in Mesosphere, a hot cloud startup that reportedly turned down a $150 million acquisition offer from Microsoft.Instead it stayed independent and raised another $73.5 million led by this HP ventures unit, raising about $122 million to date, with a reported valuation of over $1 billion .HPE's didn't just throw money at Mesosphere, it's also giving the startup access to the company's enormous sales force and partner network, she says.This gives Mesosphere many of the benefits of being acquired by a bigger company, while allowing it to stay on its own.Joining the clubIt was, apparently, Whitman's direct involvement that encouraged Mesosphere to go with HPE's funding, CEO Florian Leibert told Womack, who describes Whitman as "really responsive.Although she's had a storied career growing eBay, was a "strategic advisor" to VC Kleiner Perkins, and been on the boards of other startups like Zipcar, she's not known for her angel investing.She has no AngelList profile and Crunchbase only lists a single personal investment she's made, into startup factory Expa, founded by Uber and StumbleUpon cofounder Garrett Camp.Whitman isn't looking for HPE to become a big VC and make a killing on its investments, though she doesn't want to lose money.Instead, it's a way for HPE in general, and Whitman in particular, to keep tabs on the startup world, and get a stake in hot technologies without having to acquire every company outright, she says.NOW WATCH: How to see everything Google knows about youLoading video...
This means that these computerized advisors can offer both mass affluent and wealthy investors a variety of benefits, such as lower fees.Respondents to the survey also said that robo-advisors would by far have the greatest effect on the financial services industry both one year from now particularly in the Americas and five years from now.This is all further evidence that we ve entered the most

service, but online-only banks can offer many of the same services with higher rates and lower fees Traditional Lenders vs. Peer-to-Peer Marketplaces: P2P lending marketplaces are growing much faster than traditional lenders—only time will tell if the banks strategy of creating their own small loan networks will be successful Traditional Asset Managers vs. Robo-Advisors: Robo-advisors like Betterment offer lower fees, lower minimums and solid returns to investors, but the much larger traditional asset managers are creating their own robo-products while providing the kind of handholding that high net worth clients are willing to pay handsomely for.As you can see, this very fluid environment is creating winners and losers before your eyes…and it s also creating the potential for new
