This increase will likely pick up speed in the next few years, according to Yoni Shohet, the co-founder and CEO or SCADAfence, a startup that provides a system to monitor industrial control systems for cyber threats.Companies in the manufacturing and utilities spaces have been connecting these systems to gather more data from these systems for their IoT initiatives.The downside is that this opens up these systems to hackers, which could lead to crippling attacks on power grids, dams, and other crucial infrastructure.Last December, hackers caused a blackout in the Ukraine by hacking into a power grid's connected control system.So if hackers cripple operations through ransomware, then companies would likely be willing to pay quite a bit for the hackers to release their grip and get the operations running again.Given this data, it's no surprise that companies are more worried than ever about the looming threat of hackers penetrating their networks.In the last year, the number of records exposed in data breaches rose 97%, according to the Identity Theft Resource Center.The frequency and sophistication of cyber attacks are at an all-time high, and the costs associated with data breaches continue to rise.It also identifies the commercial sectors that are underserved in the cyber insurance market, which present a unique opportunity to insurers.For example, Target s notorious data breach cost the company more than $260 million.Insurers also don t have enough historical data about cyber attacks to help them fully understand their risks and exposures.There are large underserved markets with very low cyber insurance adoption rates such as the manufacturing sector, where less than 5% of businesses have cyber insurance coverage.In full, the report:Projects the growing demand and premiums for cyber insurance in comparison to other common forms of commercial insurance.Illustrates how cyber attacks are growing more sophisticated and more costly, which is driving more companies to consider cyber insurance.Explains the obstacles that insurers face in extending cyber insurance coverage to different types of businesses.Provides insights on how insurers can overcome these challenges to grow their cyber insurance business without incurring too much risk.To get your copy of this invaluable guide to cyber insurance, choose one of these options:Purchase an ALL-ACCESS Membership that entitles you to immediate access to not only this report, but also dozens of other research reports, subscriptions to all 5 of the BI Intelligence daily newsletters, and much more.
Nagraj Kashyap, the corporate vice president of Microsoft Ventures, laid out his vision for the investing arm in a blog post Monday, saying that the fund will be used to support early-stage companies and help Microsoft be more involved in new technology developments.Kashyap said that Microsoft is interested in a wide variety of technologies, especially cutting-edge companies focused on complementing and accelerating the global transition toward using the cloud."Companies developing product and services that complement Azure infrastructure, building new business SaaS applications, promoting more personal computing by enriching the Windows and HoloLens ecosystems, new disruptive enterprise, consumer productivity, and communication products around Office 365 are interesting areas from an investment perspective," Kashyap said.One of the risks of taking money from Microsoft is that the company may still decide to compete with a startup that it invests in.Google parent company Alphabet has both GV and Google Capital under its purview, while Intel, Salesforce, and others also offer funding to investors.Right now, the company hasn t funded any firms as part of the new Microsoft Ventures push, but Kashyap s blog post would seem to indicate that there s at least more news coming from Microsoft Ventures in the near future.

Sony s new G Master premium lenses are high-end optics designed with the A7-series full-frame mirorless cameras in mind.One of the first in this new series, the FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM, costs $2,200, but what sets it apart from other lenses?SGNL pronounced signal , a Sony-sponsored web-based television show, did a full teardown of the 24-70mm so we can all see exactly what s going on inside.It s an interesting look inside an object that most of us normally never get to see.It s also not something incredibly easy to do.In fact, SGNL notes in its video that they had to have some special tools shipped to them all the way from Japan just to get the lens open.
A few months after hackers broke into Bangladesh's central bank and came close to getting away with $1 billion £800M , researchers have uncovered evidence that a separate hacking group is targeting the same payment network.The researchers, from security firm Symantec, said in a blog post published Tuesday that they recently found new tools that target users of SWIFT, a payment network banks use to transfer payments that are sometimes in the range of hundreds of millions of dollars.The malicious tools monitor SWIFT messages sent to infected computers for International Bank Account Numbers or other keywords relating to specific transactions.When the tools encounter a message that contains a targeted text string, they use a "suppressor" component to move it out of the local file system to prevent it from being seen or recovered by the intended recipient."One of the files found along with the suppressor was a small disk wiper, which overwrites the first 512 bytes of the hard drive," Symantec researchers wrote."The area contains the Master Boot Record MBR which is required for the drive to be accessible without special tools.
Embedded bugs are hard to catchRadbot Every company has its ups and downs.Those downs could be exploding phones or a sudden unmovable overstock of Clinton merchandise or conversely an uptick in Trump-the-statesman t-shirt demand .I remember a job before going to university where I sweated for a week over hardware that stopped working just before a critical demo in the US.We did the demo, the project continued, and my employer lived.Later, for one of my huge clients we had stuff fall over that stopped production, with costs of probably millions per day, and though there was a lot of shouting I don't know of anyone being fired or even reprimanded.

Peeling and deveining shrimp isn t rocket science, but far too many of us consider it a hassle and just buy cooked shrimp instead.In this video, chef David Lefevre shows us how to do is cleanly, and how to make a flavorful court boullion to poach those shrimp in, all at the same time.Chef Lefevre explains that this method is a little more work than just ripping the shells off, but you do get the skills required to both peel and devein at the same time with no special tools—all you need is a knife.The court boullion is just cake, though, and a great, flavorful way to poach shrimp and infuse them with tons of flavor.If you re not keen on that preparation method, you can still take away the peeling and deveining method.That method, of course, is fairly simple.

Documents published on Tuesday by WikiLeaks claim to be evidence that the "CIA lost control of the majority of its hacking arsenal." If what's been published by WikiLeaks is valid, it appears that the CIA has teams specifically dedicated to breaking into Apple products, including iOS, the software that runs on iPhones and iPads, and even Apple's line of routers, AirPort.There is also evidence in the 7,818 web pages and attached files that the CIA has tools to gain unauthorized access to Android devices, smart TVs, and other computers.A security source has confirmed that the leak is authentic, the Wall Street Journal reported.Will Strafach, a security professional with extensive experience with iOS exploits and CEO of Sudo Security Group, cast doubt about the "leaked iOS stuff from CIA" on Twitter, saying that there appeared to be "nothing interesting or new.""So far, there is zero cause for concern," Strafach told Business Insider.

p One of the many ways The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild breaks radically from series conventions is in how it handles weapons.In past Zelda games, Link would acquire a wide variety of special tools, such as boomerangs and hookshots, but would only use a handful of swords over the course of any given adventure.Don’t get too attached to anything, from the first stick you pick up off the ground to that glowing, ancient blade pried from the grip of a dead guardian.Part of the game’s fun is just going with the flow and working with what you find, since the weapons you pick up in a given area are usually good enough to handle the local wildlife.Breath of the Wild is enormous, so this list is far from comprehensive, but rather it’s a selection of some of the coolest, toughest weapons that we’ve found in each category , and where you can locate them.Note that weapons taken from defeated enemies or that spawn out in the world will respawn during the periodic Blood Moon events, but anything found in a chest is only available there once.
