    More bullish moves by some funds. I apologize if this was posted earlier.

    The top bullish move of Wynnefield Capital was boosting stake in BlackBerry Ltd. (NASDAQ:BBRY) by over 60% to 1.50 million shares, worth $15.4 million. At the end of first quarter, the fund reported ownership of 900,000 shares of Ontario, Canada-based BlackBerry Ltd. (NASDAQ:BBRY), which......

    These massive security breaches are now being reported daily.

    Sucks for the CIOs that made huge investments into technologies that take security for granted.

    Let the law suits begin!

    Agreed. Maybe BlackBerry should look at creating a desktop OS. Designed around security from the ground up

    OT: Security related.

    Cyber attacks have hit 36 per cent of Canadian businesses, study says

    Cyber attacks have hit 36 per cent of Canadian businesses, study says - The Globe and Mail

    More than one-third of Canada’s IT professionals know – for sure – that they’d had a significant data breach over the previous 12 months that could put their clients or their organizations at risk, a cybersecurity study suggests.

    And as startling as that statistic may be, the actual number of breaches could be higher since the same international study found 56 per cent of the 236 Canadian respondents said they believed threats sometimes fall through the cracks.

    “Even the best-protected networks have regular security incidents,” says Jeff Debrosse, director of security research for Websense, a U.S.-based security company that commissioned the study.

    “It’s a 24-7 onslaught. It’s a barrage of attacks and attempts to penetrate the defences.”

    Debrosse says it’s a real challenge for organizations to understand their vulnerabilities, let alone prevent breaches. Technology is improving, he adds, but it’s more important to share information about attacks within and among organizations.

    “It’s not just about the vendors, it’s about creating this ecosystem of threat intelligence. And that’s a very important area of focus today,” Debrosse says.

    A Statistics Canada report in June said that six per cent of the 17,000 private Canadian enterprises it surveyed had experienced an Internet security breach in 2013. About one-quarter of those reporting a breach – representing roughly 260 companies – said client or proprietary information had been corrupted, stolen or accessed without authorization.

    “It’s a bit misleading because we’re not 100 per cent sure exactly how accurate the numbers are, really,” says Mike Park, an Ottawa-based cyber security expert now working for Trustwave, which has its global headquarters in Chicago.

    “It seems, in the last couple of years, the only time you’re really heard anything – a major breach or anything like that – is when it has become such big news that no one can keep a lid on it . . . or when its politically expedient.”

    A couple of recent examples of highly publicized Canadian breaches both involved the federal government.

    The Canada Revenue Agency discovered in April that somebody had exploited the Heartbleed security flaw, causing the CRA to call in the RCMP and temporarily shut down its public website for a weekend at a busy time of the tax year. Days later, the agency revealed that 900 social insurance numbers had been compromised.

    The Canadian government said in July that a “highly sophisticated Chinese state-sponsored actor” had hacked computer systems at the National Research Council, forcing it to shut down its IT network and isolate it from other government systems.

    Park points out that in Canada, there’s no federal law that requires private companies to disclose breaches to the government or those affected. That may change with Bill S-4, the Digital Privacy Act, now before Parliament.

    The act proposes making it mandatory for federally regulated businesses, as well as federal government agencies, to report significant breaches to the federal privacy commissioner and to customers and clients whose private information was leaked.

    The Websense report done by the Ponemon Institute, a private-sector think-tank that conducts independent research on privacy, data protection and information security policy, was based on responses from 4,881 IT and IT security specialists in 15 countries surveyed in November.

    Among other things, Ponemon found 36 per cent of the Canadian companies in the study had experienced one or more cyber attack over the previous year that infiltrated networks or enterprise systems.

    It also found 89 per cent of the Canadian respondents said they personally know another security professional whose company had sensitive of confidential data stolen as a result of an inside threat.

    It also found 23 per cent of the Canadian cyber security teams never speak with their executive team. Of those who did, nearly half did so only annually or semi-annually, while only two per cent talked weekly with executives about security.

    “If the conversation is happening less than monthly, that’s a pretty significant problem,” Debrosse says.

    That’s because there needs to be an ongoing assessment of what personnel, software, hardware or outside security vendors are required to deal with the risks. There also has to be an understanding, at the top, of the potential costs so they can be included in the organization’s budgeting and pricing decisions.

    “If they’re not calculating the probability of a cyber event (and) loss due to various incidents, when they’re hit with one of them it is a major ordeal,” Debrosse says.

    Charles Henderson, a U.S.-based director within Trustwave’s SpiderLabs, which uses hacking techniques to detect vulnerabilities for clients, says Canadian companies face different types of threat than their U.S. counterparts.

    “You do see different systems targeted,” Henderson says.

    Canadians credit and debit cards, for instance, use computer chips and passwords that are more secure than the magnetic stripes still used commonly in the United States. That means criminals are more likely to target transactions where card information is entered without a physical contact.

    Henderson says that in both countries there are companies that will do the minimum to deal with cyber security.

    “This should be an absolute red flag for an executive, if they see it in an organization.”

    Haven't been around, as I was in cow-town (Calgary, Alberta) on a little family holiday. Had to visit granny, etc.

    Say, anyone tracking which devices or MDM solutions are allowing all these attacks through lately?! Bet it isn't BES and BlackBerry devices run under it. If it was, we would be seeing huge bashing headlines, Lol.

    Anyway, good to be back. I will be peeking in from time to time to see what y'all are up to. Here is a little ditty to add to the slightly OT trend around here:

    I have never used One Codex before, but been using BLAST since the 90s. It's indeed basic, but works fine for me, and the search time has not been an issue for my usage. I think if BlackBerry wants to get involved with this, they might want to make a secure portal for searching public bases using public search engines (mostly done through the Internet), instead of replicating Codex (which seems like a replica of BLAST).

    The next career limiting opportunity for CIOs: Getting data privacy wrong | ZDNet

    Privacy is becoming a bigger and bigger headache for companies - and the CIO is bearing the brunt.

    Most companies analyse customer data in some way, but there are increasing amounts of legislation around how such data handling should be performed. Breaking the rules can land a company in hot water and leave the CIO out of a job.

    "Privacy regulation is now a topic that no CIO should underestimate as a major risk factor for business. CIOs who underestimate privacy regulation risk fines for their organization, undermine their organization's reputation and trust, as well as risk losing their own jobs," analysts Forrester said in a recent report.

    I bet they want to 'better' their COMAND system that sells for 2K vs allowing Carplay right away. Give COMAND a better value proposition vs Carplay in 2015. To do that they need to add a few extra "wow"s. Maye add QNX Car acoustic noise cancellation tech?

    Most Canadian carriers will probably release the BlackBerry Passport, but we can now confirm that TELUS will be on the list. According to our sources, the Passport is scheduled for an “early September” availability. No indication of price points.

    Yes, it does fit in your pocket

    Another bit of desperate hilarity from the shorts is that the Passport is so huge that it can't fit in anyone's pocket. But this is simply false, as shown here. The company did a comprehensive "pocket test" to ensure the device can fit anywhere but the pockets of a Liliputian. Keep trying guys!
