Working around Covid-19: the software suite helping businesses operate safely | The new rules of work

With this year’s ongoing disruption to working lives, business leaders have struggled to take stock of changing norms, changing attitudes and changing concerns.

But one enduring concern centres on workplace safety in the context of the global health pandemic. To better understand these concerns, ServiceNow recently commissioned The Work Survey, a global survey of 9,000 executives and employees. The report found that 60% of employees believed their company would prioritise business continuity over workplace safety and, even if a company put safety first, 46% of employees doubted their employer would take the necessary steps to ensure their safety.

How Social Media Is Helping Cryptocurrency Flourish

For all the buzz around cryptocurrency in the past decade or so, the industry is still far off the radar of most average internet users. 

In fact, a 2019 survey from Alpari found that 60% of Americans don’t know what cryptocurrency is—and lots of people in the industry, whether they’re traders or entrepreneurs in blockchain-related industries, see this as an opportunity. 

They’re creating a plethora of social media groups and YouTube channels dedicated to crypto education. And these resources are only growing. 

One insider who’s been watching the crypto industry is entrepreneur Jonathan Jadali, who’s been trading in cryptocurrency since he was 18. Today, he owns a PR agency and remains steeped in the blockchain and cryptocurrency industries.

Attackers Dupe GoDaddy Staff Into Helping Them Take Down Cryptocurrency Services

Roughly one year after a data breach at GoDaddy compromised 28,000 customer accounts, the world’s largest internet domain registrar is once again at the center of a security scandal.

Hackers purportedly duped GoDaddy employees into handing over the reins to several cryptocurrency services’ web domains, and then used those permissions to make unauthorized changes and bring down the sites, per a report from the cyber-centric blog Krebs On Security on Saturday. While it remains unclear how many companies fell for this scam, the cryptocurrency trading platform Liquid and mining service NiceHash uncovered attacks within days of each other.
