Cyber-crime: Cefriel, “Fattore umano fondamentale per prevenire attacchi informatici”

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 6 ottobre 2017

computer-security“Oltre a un ingente piano di investimenti in cyber-security è necessario un progetto di formazione per cambiare l’approccio culturale”. Lo afferma Raoul Brenna, responsabile della Practice Security del centro per l’innovazione digitale Cefriel (società partecipata da università, imprese e pubbliche amministrazioni che realizza progetti di innovazione digitale e di sviluppo delle del capitale umano ) e docente del Master in “Information Security Management” commentando l’ultimo rapporto Clusit. “I dati dimostrano che la crescita esponenziale di attacchi informatici non può prescindere dall’elemento umano. Da test di phishing che Cefriel ha effettuato su più di 20 imprese per 40mila persone coinvolte in tutta Europa risulta che oltre il 60% clicca su link ingannevoli presenti nella mail mentre il 40% arriva a cedere le proprie credenziali senza verificare la veridicità del mittente. Sorprende ancora di più il fatto che la grande maggioranza di questi fenomeni accade nei primi 20 minuti dal ricevimento della mail stessa” (Andrea Schieppati Sec Spa)

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 11 settembre 2014

montecarloMonte Carlo 30 ottobre 2014 Bay Hotel & Resort La comunità globale per la crescita, l’innovazione e la leadership Città intelligenti, vita connessa, convergenza industriale e innovazione dei modelli di business sono temi importanti che le aziende faticano ad incorporare efficacemente nei propri piani aziendali. Riconoscendo tutto ciò, Frost & Sullivan riunirà una rete globale di esperti per il suo evento annuale dedicato alla crescita, all’innovazione e alla leadership, per vedere in che modo l’innovazione può essere sfruttata come asset strategico.

The Education of Europe

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 25 Mag 2010

The EU should harmonise European educational and vocational systems by introducing common criteria and standards for the different educational levels which are recognised in all  Member States. This should include a facilitation pupil and student mobility within Europe,  uniform admissions procedures, examinations and evaluations.  The EU should invest more in the quality of all levels of education. Minimum norms are needed  for attractive, affordable, interesting education of a high quality, with a focus on diversity and  innovation in education. This could include countering illiteracy (by at least 20% by 2020), the  early learning of a European language, help for school drop-outs, improvement of the technical  equipment in schools and the exchange of best practice among EU Member States. The EU should make education for everyone below the age of 21 free of charge. Religion should be taught outside state or publicly funded schools.  The EU should introduce school courses which foster European identity and better  understanding of the EU, Member States and their institutions. Measures should include twinning of schools, a fund to finance exchange programmes, teaching on EU history and culture as well as citizenship and multicultural awareness. The EU should encourage measures that enhance children’s access to education, independent  of their economic and social status, with priority in these measures given to children from poor  families and rural areas. The EU should stimulate job mobility and training in line with the needs of the labour market. This could include support for member states to develop centres for job mobility, efficient professional orientation and offering re- and post-training to professions whose skills are in demand. This could be facilitated by an independent EU institution that would coordinate the exchange of experiences, providing high-profile advice and subsidies.

Don’t lean on becoming Lean in a recession

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 16 luglio 2009

Melbourne According to global advisory and consulting firm Ovum, many organisations that are looking to process improvement methods in the current economic environment are too late. While commonly used approaches such as Agile and Lean can reduce waste in IT systems and software development, they don’t offer the rapid efficiency gains that CFOs are increasingly demanding of CIOs. Their implementation takes too long and is too resource-intensive for an organisation that’s currently reviewing its IT processes. “A lot of CFOs have heard that process improvement can cut the cost of IT processes, and in the current economic environment, that’s very appealing,” says Dr Alexander Simkin, a senior analyst and process improvement specialist within Ovum’s IT Services practice. “What they don’t realise is that becoming Agile or Lean takes time and requires major change management. If you’re starting from a base of traditional processes, these approaches won’t provide rapid cost reduction. The efficiency of your processes may even get worse before they get better. CFOs need to know that and it’s a CIO’s job to educate them,” he adds. Organisations that already have an established process improvement programme aimed at waste reduction in IT have a competitive advantage in the current economic situation. However, when the economy eventually improves, the cost-cutting agenda will wane and other priorities such as improving the quality of processes will come to the fore. “Organisations that are only now seeking to improve their IT processes should consider methods that are optimum now and beyond the recession, that is, that both cut costs and improve quality. Lean Six Sigma is a good choice,” advises Simkin, based in London. Methods that audit and certify the maturity of an organisation’s IT processes such as the Capability Maturity Model Interactive (CMMI) and the International Organisation for Standardisation’s ISO 20000 are also attracting renewed interest in the recession. These methods provide CIOs with evidence to C-level colleagues and other stakeholders that investments in process improvements are providing returns.  For ITS service vendors, they have another advantage: they make those vendors eligible for contracts that stipulate minimum levels of process maturity. Two sectors in which IT service contractors typically have to certify the maturity of their processes are defence and healthcare – especially in the US. “Defence and healthcare have been relatively unscathed by the recession, so being able to bid for contracts in those sectors is increasingly important. Hence some of the extra attention that audit methods are currently receiving,” Simkin explains.

Influenza A(H1N1) Development process

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 9 luglio 2009

In response to the pandemic threat by a new influenza A(H1N1) strain, the development of a patient care checklist was started on 29 April 2009. The core checklist development group in the WHO Patient Safety Programme collaborated with technical experts in WHO Health Security and Environment.  Experts in infection control, the clinical management of pandemic-prone influenza and health-care checklist development were consulted. The design and content of the checklist was developed iteratively through successive rounds of consultation . Clinical teams in a number of settings provided feedback on its clarity and usability. This included feedback from facilities and providers currently caring for Influenza A(H1N1) patients or from clinical teams preparing for a pandemic by performing a simulation exercise using the checklist on a mock patient. Its use in clinical practice will be the subject of ongoing evaluation.  The following health-care facilities took part in a simulation exercise or a provider-focused discussion of the checklist: Brigham & Women’s Hospital (United States), Hospital General Dr. Manuel Gea Gonzalez (Mexico), Department of Infectious Diseases, Instituto Nacional de Cancerologia (Mexico), Johns Hopkins Hospital (United States), New York City Health and Hospital Corporation hospitals (United States), North York General Hospital (Canada) and University Hospital Leicester (United Kingdom). The WHO New Influenza A(H1N1) Clinical Checklist is intended for use by hospital staff treating a patient with a medically suspected or confirmed case of New Influenza A(H1N1). This checklist combines two aspects of care: i) clinical management of the individual patient and ii) infection control measures to limit the spread of New influenza A(H1N1).  The checklist is not intended to be comprehensive. Additions and modifications to fit local practice and circumstances are encouraged. WHO Patient Safety Checklists are practical and easy-to-use tools that highlight critical actions to be taken at vulnerable moments of care. They are produced in a format that can be referred to readily and repeatedly to ensure all essential actions are performed. WHO Patient Safety Checklists are not comprehensive protocols and are not intended to replace routine care.
