Sponsored The healthcare industry is transforming. The growth of health-focused IoT devices and wearables, increasing healthcare data breaches, and adoption of telemedicine, clinical informatics and mobile initiatives have led many healthcare providers to increase IT budgets. Automating and integrating disparate clinical systems to help staff improve efficiency is a key challenge.
The IoT devices and other digital initiatives are generating a deluge of data. The global healthcare data storage market is expected to reach US$9.3 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 16.2% from $2.4 billion in 2018. Use of wearable fitness and health technologies has more than tripled in the last four years, according to research from Insider Intelligence.
Globally, healthcare provider expenditure is projected to rise by 5.4 percent annually through 2022. In establishing operational efficiencies, C-suite decision-makers have to leverage technology to not only boost cost savings but also address the challenges of physician burnout and clinical staffing shortages.
Updated It is possible to hijack and manipulate Cellebrite's phone-probing software tools by placing a specially crafted file on your handset, it is claimed.
Signal app supremo Moxie Marlinspike said in an advisory on Wednesday that he managed to get his hands on some of Cellebrite's gear, which is typically used by cops, government agents, big biz, and authoritarian regimes to forcibly access the contents of physically seized smartphones.
Updated Computer scientists at the University of Minnesota theorized that they could sneak vulnerabilities into open-source software – but when they tried subverting the Linux kernel, they got caught red-handed.
And now their entire school – or at least anyone using a umn.edu email address – has been banned from offering future Linux kernel contributions.
Qiushi Wu, a doctoral student in computer science and engineering at the American college, and Kangjie Lu, assistant professor at the school, penned a paper titled, "On the Feasibility of Stealthily Introducing Vulnerabilities in Open-Source Software via Hypocrite Commits" [PDF], which is slated to be presented at the Proceedings of the 42nd IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy next month.
Quanta Computer, an ODM laptop manufacturer and prolific Apple supplier, has now confirmed that digital burglars broke into its systems.
In a statement provided to Bloomberg, Quanta said: "Quanta Computer's information security team has worked with external IT experts in response to cyber attacks on a small number of Quanta servers.
Although Quanta didn't go into the finer details, other than to say it has contacted local law enforcement, earlier today ransomware gang REvil said it was culprit, and is "negotiating the sale" of data captured in the attack "with several major brands"
Redis Labs has announced a slew of new modules designed to enhance consistency, boost machine learning, and bolster JSON document support in its core open-source database.
The new add-ons are optional and will be available in the second half of the year with release 7.0.
Redis has hit the big time in the last year, rising to the top of the AWS hit-parade to become the most popular database on the dominant cloud platform.
Google has pushed through modifications for that thing that isn't Zoom or Teams. Meet is getting a polish.
It is fair to say that Meet has not been the slam-dunk it might have been as remote and hybrid working suddenly expanded. Enterprises already in the Microsoft 365 world mostly embraced Teams while "Zoom" became as much a verb for an online meeting as "Google" did for searching the web.
Meet has, however, languished somewhat despite Google's efforts to pile on the features.
Phone, tablet, and IoT gadget makers will have to state when they'll stop providing security updates for new devices entering the market, the UK's Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) vowed this morning.
Today's pledge would see existing plans for internet-connected tat extended to smartphones and tablets, which is a large step for a scheme originally put together for landfill Internet-of-Things devices such as webcams.
Digital Infrastructure Minister Matt Warman said in a canned statement: "Our phones and smart devices can be a gold mine for hackers looking to steal data, yet a great number still run older software with holes in their security systems."
Details of the agreement reached between Foxconn and Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) were confirmed yesterday by Governor Tony Evers.
After years of warnings about security, surveillance, and unwanted state intrusion, one group of internet-connected folk has taken heed: malware operators.
British infosec biz Sophos reckons just under half of malware traffic it saw in the wild during the opening three months of 2021 alone was using Transport Layer Security (TLS) to encrypt both its command-and-control traffic and data exfiltration. The company says that figure is up from 23 per cent of known malware traffic during the whole of 2020.
"This is traffic we're seeing directly coming from malware, or it's something that's getting activated in browser... and being detected by us," lead researcher Sean Gallagher told The Register. He was open about this only being traffic observed by Sophos, meaning the true worldwide figure for TLS-encrypted malware traffic could differ.
Data visualisation biz Grafana is switching its licence model from Apache 2.0 to the Affero General Public License (AGPL) v3.
The decision, announced this morning by CEO and co-founder Raj Dutt, was made as the company continues balancing the "value creation" of its open-source community and the "value capture" of monetisation. Somebody, after all, has to pay to keep the lights on.
"The choice of license is a key pillar of this strategy, and is something that we’ve deliberated on extensively since the company began," he said.
Though Smaug-like CEO Jeff Bezos is famously a hairless wonder, Amazon is striking out into yet more new territory with a London salon.
So that's book shop cum everything shop cum cloud powerhouse cum grocer cum hair stylist.
Amazon first made its bricks-and-mortar presence known after its purchase of US grocer Whole Foods when it started offering supermarket-esque delivery services under the Amazon Fresh name.
