  • At a time when 354 seafarers and 16 ships are being held hostage in Somalia, pirates are being released unprosecuted to kidnap, loot and maybe kill again, when it is impossible to use routes via the Suez Canal between Asia/the Middle East and Europe/North America without passing through a high risk area...

Recently, it was reported by the Yorkshire Post that an IT manager for the NHS in Yorkshire had been read the riot act by his employer warning he faces jail after admitting illegally spying on medical records of patients. According to the report, Dale Trever, 22, was working for a primary care trust as a data quality manager when he accessed patients’ records - all for women and mostly for his family, friends and colleagues. It was thought he looked at records on 431 occasions, even going in on weekends to have an illicit peek. On 336 of those occasions, he was checking out the records of family, friends and colleagues. In this report filed in By DARSHNA KAMANI, Imperva reacts:

It's that time of the year again - time for the White Hat Rally, which sees competitors from the information security industry steering a variety of cars - vintage, banger and even fancy dress - across France and Italy, taking in some amazing scenery and a visit to the famous revolving restaurant at Piz Gloria along the way.  The organised motor rally is hard work - and great fun - for the competitors, but it's easy to forget that this, the second annual contest, is all about charity and the organisers are aiming to raise £30,000 for NSPCC ChildLine.

Research published last week by IT security experts, Tufin Technologies, reveals that 23% of college and university students have hacked into IT systems.  Of these hackers, 40% waited until after their 18th birthday before their first hacking attempt.  On a positive note, 84% of 18-21 year olds recognised that hacking is wrong.  However, 32% identified that hacking is ‘cool’ and worryingly, for the targets of hackers in this age group, 28% considered hacking to be easy.

A survey of over a thousand office workers carried out by 360°IT - The IT Infrastructure Event has found that over half of people think that smart IT is having secure access to the things they need when they need them, 31% think it is technology that lets them collaborate with customers and partners and just 18% think it is the latest smart device like a shiny new smart phone or laptop.  When asked what is more important to help you do your job better 35% said a new desk top, 57% a laptop, 21% wanted a Smartphone and 1% an iPad.  However, 61% said that they would be incentivised by being given a smartphone or new PC.
