BlackBerry And Amazon Team Up On Vehicle Data And Software Platform

Canadian technology specialist BlackBerry and e-commerce titan Amazon have developed a cloud-based software platform designed to help automakers and suppliers standardize vehicle data and speed deployment of new revenue-generating features and services, the companies said on Tuesday. BlackBerry and Amazon Web Services (AWS) said the new intelligent vehicle data platform, called IVY, will compress the time to build, deploy and monetize in-vehicle applications and connected services across multiple brands and models, making it easier for automakers to collaborate with a wider pool of developers to accelerate development of apps and services. Carmakers have been reluctant so far to share with outside technology providers much of the data generated by their vehicles. IVY is designed to complement and run simultaneously with new digital vehicle architectures developed by Volkswagen, General Motors and others. The platform is built

The biggest hacks, data breaches of 2020

Cybersecurity may be far from many of our minds this year, and in light of a pandemic and catastrophic economic disruption, remembering to maintain our own personal privacy and security online isn’t necessarily a priority. 

However, cyberattackers certainly haven’t given anyone a break this year. Data breaches, network infiltrations, bulk data theft and sale, identity theft, and ransomware outbreaks have all occurred over 2020 and the underground market shows no signs of stopping.

As a large swathe of the global population shifted to work from home models and businesses rapidly transitioned to remote operations, threat actors also pivoted. Research suggests that remote workers have become the source of up to 20% of cybersecurity incidents, ransomware is on the rise, and we are yet to learn that “123456” is not an adequate password. 

Many companies and organizations, too, have yet to practice reasonable security hygiene, and vulnerabilities pose a constant threat

Industrial Computer Maker Confirms Ransomware, Data …

Advantech reports the stolen data was confidential but did not contain high-value documents.

Industrial computer manufacturer Advantech has confirmed a ransomware attack that led to the theft of confidential, though low-value, corporate documents, BleepingComputer reports. 

Advantech, a global leader of embedded and automation platforms for Internet of Things (IoT) system integrators, manufactures embedded PCs, industrial IoT (IIoT) devices, network devices, servers, intelligent systems, and intelligent healthcare tools among its many offerings.

The Conti ransomware group was reportedly behind this attack and demanded a $12.6 million ransom to both decrypt target systems and stop publishing the data they stole. They also claimed they would remove backdoors installed on Advantech’s network if the ransom was paid. Attackers began to leak stolen data on their ransomware data leak website on Nov. 26. 

Advantech reports the affected server has been recovered and all key operating systems are functioning as normal.

This holiday season, retailers have an opportunity to completely reinvent the online/offline experience forever by taking shopping closer to the consumer. They already have the technology in place to do it.

A Different Holiday Shopping Season

It’s clear that the 2020 holiday shopping season will be different as shoppers and retailers plan for a time of uncertainty and social distancing. A Google-commissioned Ipsos survey found that 74% of U.S. shoppers said they plan to shop online more than they have done in previous seasons. Shoppers will still visit stores, but retailers should not expect a stampede of eager shoppers on big shopping days such as Black Friday. Many shoppers will look to services such as curbside pickup to minimize exposure to other people. (In fact, Salesforce predicts that stores retailers offering some

Data Backup Practices Can Thwart Ransomware

Spectra Logic is a 41-year-old private company, based in Boulder, Colorado, that according to the company’s website, “develops data storage and data management solutions that solve the problem of digital preservation for organizations dealing with exponential data growth.”  On May 7, 2020, and related to the move to remote work by Spectra Logic employees, the company experienced a ransomware attack by one of the more active ransomware malware that encrypted a significant amount of the company’s data.
