The Data reveloution is a minefield
Loads of people are asking can we
very few ask Should we
from a Data Security point of view, and in light of GDPR, its the most important question.
if its anything like my org,
we tried to hire local, but they were more intrested in rate they could get as agency,
we tried to hire from spain, italy and holland, but they didnt want to come cos brexit,
now we have had to go to the Philippines, and they cant get visas
this might atleast mean we can get some of the empty nursing posts (some for more than 4 years) filled.
I think our visa system post-Brexit needs to morph into something akin to the Aussie one, where if we need your skils, no probs, if we dont, you have to tick all the boxes under the sun, and we might let just you in and not the rest of the family..
oh just the largest manufacturer of telcoms equipment in the world and the backbone of most countries Broadband networks, and the only way normal americans are going to get decent cheap broadband anytime soon ....
but if your wondering where cisco's cash pile just went, i'd be checking Republican Tom Cotton, and Democrat Chris Van Hollen's campaign funds and where they just got new cars/houses/boats from.
So 1 bn Euro down the swanny and nothing to show, sounds like a standard UK.gov project.
Despite the fact that UK based companies and institutions own a lot of the IP in the constelation and developed much of the hardware, and according to Airbus (Its Surrey Satellite Technology subsidiary makes the payload for the current generation of Galileo satellites and ground services are managed by Airbus in Portsmouth,) being essential to the project.
Despite its posturing the UK military alongside France are still the most effective in europe, and the shock troops for NATO operations. the idea behind Galileo was to make the European military not dependant on GPS or GLONASS or soon to be unvield Chinese alternative, Allowing the US/Russia/China to go off and prioritise their system outside the North atlantic theatre and have little to no effect on the Europeans.
having paid approximatley 10% of the cost and done about 15% on the project, we have probably actually achieved some benefit from it.
I am not going to add to the brexit debate, FMPOV nothing has changed since the referendum, there were four courses of action, 49% voted for one and 51% voted for one of the other four, and were sold on the least damaging "Norway Option" so where this obsession with Hard Brexit, that has been proven detrimental to the UK, has come from I dont know.
Looks like mickey needs to raid the lucas film merchandising fund and up their offer.
Not sure who I'd rather have the controlling stake in SKY?
OK so they had simillar hapen and ICO hit them with a £400k fine
this is their second breach with Credit card data
I can see two potential consequences:
the ICO hit them with a BIG GDPR fine (last years t/o £10,580m makes max fine £211.6m/£423.2m)
PCI suspend their payment processing rights (no card transactions - All their online business and presumably most of there in store)
thats when they issue a service pack with a whole new bunch of
bugs features to find
ICANN needs to be brought under a more enlitened juristiction, I'm all for california, but US.gov...
It does need its governance framework re-written to accutally make it accountable, but US.gov should have forced this before they gave them the IANA contract, but there is little they can do now .....
I'd suggest making it a UN agency, except for all the issues we've seen with them lately. The ITU dont have a clue, IETF are just about independant enough and have the right people (depending on which working group you talk to)
Cos the Swiss did such a great job with FIFA
The issue was bad systems integration, the server that was hacked was a relic of the Tiscali takeover
Tesco are a huge conglomerate, They have operations in much of the world, and investments in many
Theses are some of the brands you may know:
Day & Nite
outside of this they have fingures in many pies and access to insurance, finance and telcoms data, they have holdings in fuel and ventures with Esso. at one point in the 1990s 48p in every £1 spent on the UK Highstreet was spent at TESCO, they still hold 27% of the UK Grocery Market giving them an effective monopoly
FYI(Sainsbury and ASDA have approximatley 16% each and Morrisons has 10%, ALDI, Co-Op, Waitrose and lidl all have about 5%)
The largest manufactures of Tellecoms equipment are:
Huawei, Erricson, Nokia(Alcatel-Lucent,) ZTE, Cisco, samsung
By excluding Huawei and ZTE they are unfaily discriminating, Nokia has large holdings in china and joint ventures with state owned companies, the same with Erricson.
Samsung manufactures a lot of its kit in china, as does cisco, and neither produce as good carrier grade as Huawei
But most of your iPhone is built in china
The Proof-of-Transit daft offers
Usually it is only applicable if processing is based on consent.
so providing you are storing data for a legal, contractual or other allowed method (not requiring the individual's consent) and only retaining it for as long as is nessacary, then RTBF does not apply
Sounds like the US need PECR and TPS
BGP route space is not an issue, we went passed that ages ago the issue is IPv4 only has space for 16bit or 65535 AS numbers and we are using 61140 advertising 724500 routes (agregated to just under 400k in the core)
we went over the 512k routes a few years back and no-one missed a step TCAM tables on modern routers have space for 2048k entries, which should keep us going for some while yet.
Talking v6 adoption, there are 52k routes and 15320 ASes in the current BGPv6 table and the v6 header has room for 32-bit AS numbers or upto 4294967295 ASes
I've spent a little more than 30 seconds on it, but i went with 6 octets with the IPv4 space in the top 255.255.IPv4, taking on board some of the usefull refinements from the IPv6 spec

IPv6 address space is stupidly large, IIRC there is enough for 7 addresses for every atom in every person on earth an when you are talking frame headers, they become stupidly large, even with the header optimisations.
From my POV, The Issue with IPv6 adoption is security, no-one wants their internal addresses globally routable and the only reason the core is going to IPv6 is the lack of AS numbers, nothing to do with network addresses. I can see us developing a two tier internet, with an IPv6 core and an IPv4 edge with large orgs/lower tier ISPs doint the v6 to v4 NAT
thats nothing, the Thameslink 2000 project (started in 1989) is finally going to be delivered in 2019
I think many are missing the point ICANN are the controller in this case, and tucows (and their subsiduary) the processor.
ICANN contracts tucows to run the .de registry
ICANN contract requires they collect the said information
Tucows as processor must perform the duties they are requested by the Controller.
What ICANN does with that information, is not Tucows responsibility, however dodgy and against the law it is.
It is the responisbility or the registrant to gain Consent from the technical and admin contacts to publish this information.
I agree ICANN need hauled over the coals for the privacy implications in Whois, but this case isnt about WHOIS and GDPR, its about contracts.
RFC 812 was obseleted twice, RFC3912 (the current whois Spec Published Sept 2004) states
The WHOIS protocol has no provisions for strong security. WHOIS lacks mechanisms for access control, Integrity, and confidentiality. Accordingly, WHOIS-based services should only be used for information which is non-sensitive and intended to be accessible to everyone. The absence of such security mechanisms means this protocol would not normally be acceptable to the IETF at the time of this writing.
That may be the litteral translation, but it doesnt have the right tone or severity of language, I hope a native german speaker can chip in, but rules of good etiquete prevent me from exploring the depths of my german vocab for a better phrasing.
Privacy shield hasnt colapsed yet ... (but its on its way)
Schrems VS Facebook killed Safe Habour
Privacy Shield was supposedly a "better" replacement, but is still so full of loopholes and get-out clauses, along with the US.gov survelence, that it too will get ripped up, untill the US introduce a GDPR of their own.
and EU-US data sharing as part of FIVE EYES hasnt stopped.
E2E crypto and HTTPS ubiquity have helped, but we're still nowhere near there.
and calling NCSC head a GCHQ bod is technically tue, but NCSC are a very different part of the organisation, with a completley different mindset.
Bearing in mind the Chinese respect for IP rights, and the speed at which factories can churn them out, the money wont be in making and selling, but in operating and using.
and no doubt the majority of the money is in replacing Bob and his cherrypicker, etc. and dumping him on the unemployment line.
Oh BTW Airliners already effectivley fly themselves, the Human "Pilot" is pretty much a failsafe.
Sounds like the Manager needs to be done for breaching DPA, but seeing how beusy they are at the minute, it might just get swept under the rug.
but from previous prosecutions, it would be a fine for the individual, and probably lead to loss of job.
AWS is in the lead
Azure is catching up
Google is trying, but needs to put more money in to catch up
Alibaba is to china focused, but if you get all the features is ok
Oracle is paying cursory attention to the market, cos someone said they need a cloud
and IBM is trying and failing with its usual competence
Are these things we need to pay Gartner for?
Sorry JJ - its UK law (Data Protection Act 2018) and is fundemental to getting a data security equivalence decision to keep trading in the EU. Oh and by the way, GDPR applies to anyone world wide holding any EU citizen's Data.
Personally, i feel the fines are a big enough deterent, if the DPAs hit one of the big boys hard early on. But i would have liked the DPA to go further and make directors criminally responsible for their companies privacy and security practice.
for any implementation, an ASIC will be the fastest, depending on the FPGA design, it could be the next fastest, but GPUs can do Maths far faster than CPUs.
In AI, its normally about number crunching, and if you are doing several specific optimal tasks, being able to switch the silicon to optomise for each in turn, with FGPA, will give you some advantage.
The reason they are looking at off the shelf silicon, is cost and compatability. If every device has a custom FPGA running custom code, then every function they develop, needs to be translated to each individual spec device; with COTS silicon in everything, they can write once, and deploy the function to any device.
Please See Directive (EU) 2016/1148
The majority of its content is now codified in UK law through the DPA2018
The US has almost twice the amount of firearms per capita of any other nation, and atleast 4 times as many as any other devloped nation.
In other countries, there was one Sandy hook type event and legislation was passed, and it never happened again.
Until Americans Grow Up and accept the Facts, nothing will change.
Afterall, the nation was formed by those that couldnt hack the change going on in europe and moved rather than evolve.
Europe has been evolving for 250 ish years since then, attitudes have been enlightend, evidence is required, blind faith is no longer a justification.
This is an edited version of a previous post, but if the US media can trot out the same old story every time .....
on average 100 US citizens own 101 guns this is a bit on the skewed side as 3% of the population own over half the guns (at least 17 each) and 57% of housholds don't own one.
the NRA has 5 million members (or less than 1% of the population.)
7.7 million Americans own over 40 guns, so theres at least 2.7million people who own over 40 guns who arent NRA members.
So how do they claim to speak for US gun owners?
No other nation owns anywhere near as many guns as the US the next closest are Serbia 58.21 guns per 100 people and Yemen 54.8, the world average including these is 10.2 (canada 30.8, AUS 24.1, UK 6.2)
Oh and all this second ammendment stuff is really a reach, here it is in all its glory:
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed"
so its basically saying that the individual states have the power to retain an armed force that can be used to defend the freedom of the people and this will not be infringed by the forming of the United States. the NRA et all like to forget the first part of it.
The NRA try to whip up the gun owners by saying gun regulations will remove their right to own any, but even talking to NRA confrence delegates or Trump supporters, they accept that some people shouldn't have guns, and that some controlls are nessacary.
These are my suggestions:
limit legal arms to Hunting rifles and Handguns, except where stored secureley at a licenced gun club, that is inspected and controlled.
Mandatory check on applicants for mental illness, violent convictions or other relevant crimes.
Mandatory training on safe use and storage
That will not impinge the averge gun user, apart from the time to carry out checks, but but any sensible person will build that into their scheduling.
Did anyone else think ICE had been watching "Person of Interest" When they read that one
now the word person is not permited as it has the male noun son at the end, the PC lobby would have you use the term perkin.
Personally, it think we should keep MITM, and change the definition to Mallory In The Middle or if we want a new term either:
Transparent Interstitial Transition Strike
or Network Re-routing Attack
(answers on a postcard)
As I currently workin Information Security in the NHS i can confirm this is how it is dealt with.
Basically anyone can access a patient, as the time taken approving someone's access in the case of an emergency may be the difference between life and death, but this is heavily audited and we check those logs on a regular basis.
NHS policy states that all staff are bound by the common law duty of confidentiality, and that individual records should only be accessed for direct patient care
If anyone is discovered having accessed patinet records outside this specific purpose, they are subject to discaplinary, and as seen in this story, it is treated seriously, and always reported to the ICO.
This does not only happen for celebrities, if you look at the ICO website, you will see that several former Healthcare employees have been prosecuted.
but its one hell of a deterent.
The DPO is not criminally responsible if they advised against it and the board ignore them.
its been longer than that, 1920s is when it started ... the Washington Naval Treaty and the repeal of the Naval Defence Act that lead to the breakup of the Empire and the current sad state of affairs, as no-one worked out we couldnt maintain 3 fleets with that number/tonnage of ships.
Thats providing they can keep them out of the sea, which appears to be an issue.
Also we built those two huge things with the option of running Type C, with Cats and Traps, which BAe made an exorbitantly expensive conversion. If we were going for steam, we'd need room for the generators (which isnt there) or if we awere going EMALS, we'd need plentiful electricty, which a reactor would be rally useful for but ....
Also the fact that anyone else running the type B is doing so from an Invincible class size ship (i.e. our old ski-jump enabled 20kt ships.) The whole F35 program was an abortion from the start, the BAe next gen harrier, origonally proposed for the FCBA, was a much better option and would have outclassed both the F35-B and the Rafale.
May have been 15% when RR were going to supply the second engine option, instead of just the lift gear for the B variant
The same clauses are in the GPL, MIT and Apache licences especially the "As Is" and the "without warranty"
the issue is, dont use it if you dont know what its doing ...
I admit to re-using code, but everything in any of my programs, i have read through and worked out the whats and wherfores and can be reasonably sure its not doing something stupid
The only way they will get me to Trust them with any data, is if all profiles are locked down by default, but that'll never happen and would never be free!
as a wiser man than i said "if you're not paying for a service, you (or your data) are the product"
Article 12 of the Universal decleration of human rights, one of the core treaties of the UN that All members must sign up to:
No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.
Encryption is essential to privacy of communications.
as for the money laundering, has anyone else noticed that the worlds hot spots for dodgy money dealings are all UK overseas teratories? Jersey, Caman Islands, Bahamas ...
Par for the course with PTP
but depending on the architecture, it may be possible, like it is with the way they integrated stuff into cars.
If you dont need to game or run data analytics etc, a thin client is all you need, which is why for most people I have been recommending the Chromebook for a while.
Oh and Thin Clients are everywhere and a great thing for desktop security: you get a new machine every morning, thats patched and up to date, and if your VD server is man enough, you dont notice the limitations.
He's not the Messaih HE's A VERY NAUGHTY BOY!!!!
OK if hardware failure is only 4% of outages and UPS is 25%, is there a point in UPS?
Would That be what used to be CAP Gemini, then CAP Gemini Ernst & Young, then Capgemini. the lovley people who brought about the Aspire contract at HMRC
yeah but thats the system they have been using in the states to enforce COPPA and how many under 13s do you know of with a Facebook, twitter, insta, snap, or <insert latest here> account?
Also its the same on pr0n form some locations, are you 18? (or 21 in sone juristictions) and any 14 year old with a modicum of sense, knows what the answer is.....
