    Although the article was about South Africa, anyone wanna bet this is the next way that AT&T and VZW attempt to screw BlackBerry? BlackBerry presented their WorkLife product to them but they are going to stall until they come up with the their own product just so they don't have to share any fees with BlackBerry.

    If carriers adopt and offer WorkLife, it could be the start of SAF2.0 for BlackBerry.

    Already secured by the internal network. If your network or IT department chose to give your VC systems an externally exposed IP as in-front of the firewall then you SHOULD fire them, like last year! I worked at one company for 4.5wks that insisted upon that and I left total morons, except one employee in IT, he tried explaining and the minute I asked my 2nd day we both went for drinks it was THAT kind of conversation just to explain that the rest of the office shouldn't be hearing his disdain thoughts. Smart guy.

    How BlackBerry Ltd is working to make shoddy IT security illegal

    How BlackBerry Ltd is working to make shoddy IT security illegal | Financial Post

    NEW YORK Graham Murphy is tinkering with an infusion pump as if hes adjusting the settings with his fingers. He isnt. Instead, hes using what he calls basic lines of malicious code to hack into the device, which is used to deliver medicine to patients. First it connects his laptop to the pump directly through a cable. Then he logs in remotely via a Wi-Fi connection, breezing by security both times because, well, there isnt any. No ID to guess (it was available online). No firewall to breach. No system, it seems, to detect his presence.

    Once hes virtually inside the pump, which is dispensing a blue liquid into a plastic cup, he can alter the dosage, access private patient data and use it as a bridge to try to gain access into the rest of a hospitals IT network. Less than 10 minutes pass when a word adorns the pumps digital display in blood-red letters. DEAD, it reads.

    Graham, you killed the patient, a concerned David Kleidermacher, chief security officer at BlackBerry Ltd., says to Murphy, one of the companys U.K.-based security specialists. A crowd, watching them in a hotel conference room in midtown New York City, bursts into laughter. Sorry, Dave, Murphy jokingly replies.

    No one, of course, died on that mid-July morning because no patient was being treated. The performance was, instead, a live hacking demonstration that BlackBerry staged at its annual security summit, where its top brass boast about their security offerings and pedigree in keynote speeches and product trials.

    But the message the Waterloo, Ont.-based company sends is clear: A medical infusion pump, or other device, can be easily compromised while its trying to provide life-saving care for your patient, your child or your insuree at any hospital or home, and its time to do something about it with BlackBerrys help, of course.

    BlackBerry is not exactly being altruistic. It has turned to its nascent software business to stabilize a corporate revenue figure that wont stop falling and it has said it plans to secure everything, not just mobile phones or tablets, but connected cars, fridges, infusion pumps and the like.

    In the auto industry, for example, the company wants to station security researchers like Murphy, known in the industry as white-hat or ethical hackers, to test for vulnerabilities before a new car model ever hits the street.

    Kleidermacher, who joined BlackBerry in February and has rarely spoken publicly, said its not illegal for device manufacturers to claim their products security is the best thing ever when it isnt.

    Can you imagine if it was legal for them to say that about safety? You cant do that, he said during an interview after the summit. But in the security world, they could say that and it would be absolutely legal. That infusion pump manufacturer can make that claim. This is a problem.

    Its a problem that should worry patients, doctors and insurers alike, but getting them to care is a hurdle BlackBerry must clear to monetize the products it has spent years building.

    If another company whose security platform has holes like Swiss cheese that intruders can exploit can make unsubstantiated claims without penalty, it creates distrust in all offerings since quality cannot be gauged. The lack of standard is among the reasons why most executives excluding some of those in regulated industries still perceive IT security as an avoidable expense rather than a prized asset.

    Its almost like the world doesnt believe that we can make things secure, Kleidermacher said in a keynote speech at the summit. That the only thing we can do is patch, patch, patch. I reject that notion.

    Among his tactics for selling BlackBerrys security solutions distribution is persuading countries, starting with the U.S., to make it illegal to produce shoddy IT security systems. If its a law that you have to use it, then theyll use it, theyll have to buy it, he said.

    But hes not starting with cellphones, as you might expect BlackBerry to do. Hes working with doctors to create a security standard for equipment that monitors and manages diabetes: glucose monitors, artificial pancreas technology and insulin pumps, which work and are constructed a lot like infusion pumps.

    Kleidermacher imagines the standard stamp, certificate or however they end up defining it could be for security what UL is for product safety. UL, formerly known as Underwriters Laboratories, inspects, tests and certifies products in 113 countries and validates them with a specific mark of approval.

    BlackBerry recently found out that it wasnt pursuing this endeavour alone. Kleidermacher was introduced a few months ago by a mutual friend to Dr. David Klonoff, an endocrinologist at Mills-Peninsula Health Services in San Mateo, Calif., which is less than an hour drive from BlackBerrys office in Pleasanton, Calif.

    Klonoff was in the process of assembling a committee that would craft a cybersecurity standard for the machines his diabetes patients use daily. After a handful of meetings in Washington, D.C., and many emails and phone calls, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration pulled up a seat at the table to join what has been described as a dream team, which includes the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Air Force, Bayer AG, Sanofi SA, other academics, engineers and, among others, BlackBerry.

    He had also asked BlackBerrys rivals several big-name brands that everybodys heard of to join the committee, but the unnamed companies opted, for now, to sit on the sidelines. It surprised Klonoff.

    The standards are going to arrive no matter what, he said in a phone interview. If youre a company, you can have a voice in the process, or you can wait for something to happen and react to it. He didnt know much about BlackBerry before, but now hes impressed by how serious it takes security.

    Klonoff is the chair of the Diabetes Technology Society, a non-profit he founded in 2001 to promote and study the use of technology in the fight against diabetes, which 29.1 million Americans and two million Canadians were estimated to have had in 2014.

    The organization makes money mostly from grants and the fees people pay to attend the annual medical conferences it hosts. It recorded US$1.5 million in revenues in 2013 and spent well beyond that, according to forms filed with the Internal Revenue Service.

    Klonoff said his patients are afraid that the medical devices they rely on could be hijacked by hackers from anywhere in the world and at any time, stealing their data and tampering with their dosages. Indeed, the software could have already been breached without anyone knowing not even the devices manufacturer.

    The steering committee he formed had its first phone meeting in June and first in-person meeting in July. Klonoff is hopeful almost certain that when the standard is created, participating device manufacturers will start abiding by it, and that the FDA will eventually mandate it for all devices because it can be good policy, too.

    If you get the FDA involved, then theres a possibility that theyre going to adopt it, he said. The fact that theyre at the table is a good sign. And its an even better sign that the FDA was attracted to the project without any lobbyist involvement, he said. He hopes Health Canada will soon pull up a chair as well.

    A Health Canada spokeswoman said in an email the department has not been asked to join the U.S.-based diabetes technology project. She added that the Medical Device Regulation requires devices categorized as higher-risk such as pacemakers that contain software must demonstrate their devices meet safety and effectiveness requirements. But cybersecurity is not specifically mentioned.

    A spokeswoman for the FDA said in an email it was actively monitoring the issue and working closely with stakeholders to ensure patient safety related to cybersecurity of medical devices.

    Klonoff can envision that whatever standard is written could eventually apply to other devices in medicine, but its still early days. Kleidermacher has his sights set beyond the health care vertical.

    For BlackBerry, which is in search of new ways to monetize its software, such a certificate could open the door to fresh sources of revenue by servicing the needs of a broader group of customers. And the company has taken a proactive approach to talk about what it can do, as well as help hold the pen thats writing the rules.

    There needs to be a standard by which you can evaluate the security of any device whether its a medical device or a car or anything and really put it through its paces to a point where you can say, I believe this can be protected against Graham, who was hacking that pump and knows all the tricks of the trade, Kleidermacher said. If theres a standard way, that changes the game completely. Now theres a bar.

    For those that know....

    "Android cannot hold a candle to BlackBerry in terms of managing email "

    Proof?

    Start an email conversation on Bb10 to anyone with android (let's start at Kit Kat) and keep replying to one another without a change in the subject line at all. Wait about 15 emails back and forth using BOTH native email systems one for Gmail the other using Outlook.com. Watch the android system freeze and lockup the phone. This was my experience talking to a female friend on her android over the weekend made me giggle but...

    My Z10 on Z10STL100-3/10.3.2.2252 froze when I started to delete content in the next reply start from the bottom upward. I intended to delete all but my reply and the most recent email I was replying too. Not easy. I used the drag handles to be precise and I can tell you I saw 3 instances of the pop up tool bar for copy cut paste select all. Wasn't pleasant.
