Air France-KLM presents its go forward plan to recapture a leadership position in Europe

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 11 novembre 2019

In Paris, Air France-KLM is organizing a presentation for investors. On this occasion, Benjamin Smith, Air France-KLM CEO, along with Pieter Elbers, KLM President and CEO, Anne Rigail, Air France CEO, and Frederic Gagey, Air France-KLM CFO, will outline the group’s strategic priorities and its financial trajectory over the next five years.
· Restore a dynamic of sustainable profitability based on a new value-focused model for the group’s primary stakeholders: employees, customers, and shareholders.
· A plan built around four main strategic priorities: optimising the operational model, refocusing passenger revenue growth around the most profitable segments, developing initiatives on customer data, the Flying Blue loyalty program, maintenance and cargo, and pragmatically analyzing consolidation opportunities. Each of these initiatives support the group’s goal to remain a leader in the sector’s ecological transition.
“In a competitive and fast-transforming environment for European airlines, the Air France-KLM Group has all the assets to regain its leadership position”, said Benjamin Smith, CEO of the Air France-KLM Group. “Thanks to the dedication of our employees at Air France, KLM and Transavia, since the end of 2018 we have been able to establish the fundamentals of our go forward plan: simplifying our fleet, clarifying our brand and market positioning, and unlocking significant commercial and operational flexibility thanks to new labour agreements. This is the starting point of a strategy that will allow Air France-KLM to reinvent itself, creating value for all key stakeholders. We will optimize our operational model and increase revenues to significantly improve our operating margin. Everything we do will support our goal of remaining an industry pioneer as the airline group most committed to global environmental sustainability.”The Air France-KLM Group has several unique assets: the strength of its three brands Air France, KLM and Transavia, its two hubs in Paris – the world’s leading inbound destination – and Amsterdam – the leading European connection hub and where the airline hub-and-spoke model was first invented, its extensive and highly complementary combined network, and its powerful commercial partnerships.To fully leverage these assets, the Group must simplify and optimize its mode of operation and reposition itself to pursue the most profitable traffic.At the end of 2018 work was started to lay the foundation for future success, and the next steps will revolve around four main strategic priorities, to be rolled out at each airline.

Possibile aumento degli attacchi su hardware, dispositivi basati su ARM e sistemi cyber-fisici nel 2020

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 11 novembre 2019

SAN FRANCISCO,(GLOBE NEWSWIRE) Black Hat, il più grande produttore mondiale di eventi sulla sicurezza informatica, oggi pone l’accento sulle previsioni da parte dei membri del Comitato di revisione di Black Hat Europe in ambito di tecnologia, sistemi e attacchi che domineranno il settore della sicurezza informatica nel 2020. Gli attacchi su hardware, dispositivi basati su ARM e sistemi cyber-fisici saranno un argomento di particolare preoccupazione nel 2020 e saranno messi in risalto al prossimo Black Hat Europe, a Londra, in Inghilterra dal 2 al 5 dicembre.
Gli attacchi basati su hardware erano considerati incredibilmente di nicchia in precedenza, ma secondo Daniel Cuthbert, Responsabile globale della ricerca sulla sicurezza di Banco Santander, gli attacchi hardware diventeranno una consuetudine nel 2020.”Con l’avvento della comunità creativa e l’accesso ad hardware e design economici, l’efficacia dei metodi di attacco basati su hardware per l’accesso o la sovversione è migliorata”, sostiene Cuthbert. “I consumatori credono fermamente che i propri dispositivi fisici non abbiano componenti nocivi, ma questa convinzione potrebbe diventare molto più che un problema in futuro”.
Lo sfruttamento dell’IoT è diventato particolarmente rilevante con la crescita delle quote di mercato dei dispositivi basati su ARM, oltre alla sostituzione di altri processori per l’elaborazione tradizionale, desktop, portatili e sistemi server. Secondo Maria Markstedter, ricercatrice di sicurezza indipendente e formatrice, i dispositivi basati su ARM meriterebbero maggiore attenzione nel 2020.
Secondo Stefano Zanero, professore associato del Politecnico di Milano, in futuro potrebbe esserci un aumento degli attacchi di hacking ai sistemi cyber-fisici: Zanero continua, “Gli esperti di sicurezza informatica sono da tempo a conoscenza del fatto che i sistemi cyber-fisici, in particolare nel mondo industriale e automotive, sono stati progettati per un modello ambientale e di minacce differente. Ci avviciniamo al momento in cui non avremo tempo di progettare nuovamente questi sistemi in modo che resistano agli obiettivi degli hacker moderni”.
Il Comitato di revisione di Black Hat Europe è composto dai più affidabili e distinti professionisti sulla sicurezza del settore e da leader scelti tra varie aree della comunità di sicurezza informatica. Il Comitato di revisione fornisce consulenza a Black Hat in quanto a direzione strategica, revisionando e programmando i contenuti delle conferenze, oltre a fornire impareggiabili informazioni utili nella comunità di ricerca.

Los miembros del comité de revisión de Black Hat Europe prevén un aumento en los ataques a hardware

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 11 novembre 2019

SAN FRANCISCO, (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Black Hat, principal organizador mundial de eventos relacionados con la seguridad de la información, pone de manifiesto hoy las predicciones de los miembros del consejo de revisión de Black Hat Europe sobre la tecnología, los sistemas y los ataques que se espera que dominen el sector de la seguridad de la información en 2020. Se prevé que los ataques a hardware, dispositivos basados en ARM y sistemas ciberfísicos constituyan un área de especial interés en 2020, hecho que se destacará en la próxima edición de Black Hat Europe, que tendrá lugar entre el 2 y el 5 de diciembre en Londres, Inglaterra.
Los ataques basados en hardware se consideraban anteriormente algo muy aislado, pero según Daniel Cuthbert, responsable mundial de investigación en seguridad del Banco Santander, este tipo de ofensiva será algo habitual en 2020. “Con el aumento de la comunidad de fabricantes y la posibilidad de acceso a hardware y diseños baratos, los métodos de ataque basados en hardware para conseguir acceder o afectar negativamente han mejorado”, afirma Daniel Cuthbert. “En principio los consumidores confían en que sus dispositivos físicos no incluyan componentes malintencionados, pero esta confianza podría llegar a estar en peligro en el futuro”.
El uso del Internet de las cosas (IoT) cada vez tiene más importancia conforme crece la cuota de mercado de los dispositivos basados en ARM, pasando a sustituir a otros procesadores usados habitualmente en el sector informático, como ordenadores de sobremesa, portátiles y sistemas de servidor. Según Maria Markstedter, investigadora y formadora de seguridad independiente, puede que en 2020 tengamos que analizar más detenidamente los dispositivos basados en ARM.

WJC President Lauder responds to antisemitic incidents in Scandinavia

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 11 novembre 2019

“Antisemitism is a clear and present danger, must be met with concrete action”. World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder responded forcefully on Sunday to the string of threatening antisemitic attacks carried out in Scandinavia over the weekend, including vandalism at different Jewish institutions and property in Stockholm and Denmark. “It is no longer possible for anybody, Jew or non-Jew alike, to be shocked by the callous reminders unleashed against our communities in Scandinavia and elsewhere in Europe this past Shabbat that antisemitism is alive and well, and right at our doorsteps. The writing has been on the wall for years, and today, 81 years nearly to the date of Kristallnacht, it continues to blaze strongly. The time has come for deliberate and targeted action,” President Lauder said. “Europe must wake up and protect its Jewish citizens.” “We are encouraged by the renewed show of force among our friends in the European Union in pledging to combat the epidemic of antisemitism that has washed this continent, but words of commitment are not enough. Governments must speak out, and show actions not words. We must stand united against these threats, and that means increasing the resources. Our Jewish institutions, including synagogues and centers, must have police protection. Perpetrators of antisemitic attacks must be prosecuted and penalized to the fullest extent of the law, including those carrying out their crimes online. The digital sphere demands increased vigilance, without delay. Neo-Nazi ideology – such as the kind that incites hateful people to vandalize Jewish homes with yellow stars – must be outlawed. Until these steps are taken, we cannot truly say that we are fighting the scourge of antisemitism,” President Lauder said.
