Untangling service provider breaches

first_imgOctober is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, so today I’m writing about service provider data breaches and member notification rules. I’ll also share some insights from a cybersecurity-related event I attended last week at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.To start with the basics, Part 748 of NCUA’s regulations implements the Gramm-Leach Bliley Act of 1999 (GLBA) and describes a credit union’s obligation to adopt various technical and administrative safeguards to protect member information. Appendix B to Part 748 advises credit unions that they should develop a “risk-based response program” to address “incidents of unauthorized access to member information in member information systems.” Appendix B also describes the standard for providing notice to members when there is an incident of unauthorized access to “sensitive member information.” (Emphasis added.)Let’s unpack some of this language. As an initial matter, Part 748 describes not only what a credit union should do, but also what it must do to safeguard member information. In general, NCUA’s IT examination process is risk-based, so it’s incumbent upon the credit union to design security controls that are appropriately tailored. However, NCUA advises that a credit union should, at a minimum, consider the specific security measures enumerated in Appendix A to Part 748, which include a response program. In addition, 12 CFR 748.0(b)(3) requires that the credit union’s security program be designed to “respond to incidents of unauthorized access to or use of member information that could result in substantial harm or serious inconvenience to a member.” continue reading » 16SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

If the right ones become available we do have the resources and I do have the backing from the board, but it’s also about getting the right ones. “It has to be. There’s no point suddenly bringing someone else in now for the sake of three or four months if that can disrupt any good feeling or chemistry in the group, because the chemistry in the group is really good. “It has to be the right type and it has to be a good investment for the long term as well.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… “But hopefully in a few years we can. It’s not going to be overnight, it’s only them that can do that. “We are more with fast flowing, quicker attacking, but if you can mix that with what we have had in recent games then you’ve got a chance.” Solskjaer will be buoyed by the expected return of Paul Pogba for the trip to Arsenal on New Year’s Day, but will be without Scott McTominay who suffered knee ligament damage in the win over Newcastle . And the Norwegian is hopeful of recruiting a couple of additions in the January transfer window – but insists he will not be spending money for the sake of it. “If we can keep this lot fit and if we can keep on improving, one addition or if you get two additions, of course that will be competition for places,” he said.center_img They are without a Champions League triumph since 2008 and have more recently lost their place at Europe’s top table altogether. David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho came and went before Solskjaer – and the Norwegian knows the scale of the task in front of him to provide both stability and success for the Red Devils. He said: “2020 sounds quite good to me – and I’m going to make it a good year for myself. “I think we’re on the right track. We are still in a transition period, but we’ve seen other clubs do it and come out stronger after a couple of years. Solskjaer admits United are still striving to re-discover their identity – and concedes they have a long way to go catch up with rivals Man City. “We’re improving and I think we can see more and more of what we want to be and our identity and what we’re good at,” he added. “We’re making games suit our style more and more. We’ve played the same way for a little while and we’re getting used to each other. “We’re quite a bit away still from where we want to be, but we have to learn that way of playing football. I’ve said we’re not a Manchester City , we can’t outplay and out football teams like they do yet. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has urged Manchester United to consign their decade of decline to history as they enter a new year. United have steadily fallen since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement at the end of the 2012-13 season – their last Premier League title.last_img read more

Costa’s late winner sends Juve to Champions League knockouts

first_imgRonaldo fired his effort from the corner of the box straight at Guilherme who spilled the ball through his legs, allowing Ramsey to poke home from the goal-line on the greasy surface.The Russians equalised eight minutes later after Juve took their foot off the gas.Maciej Rybus whipped a cross towards Miranchuk who tapped in unopposed with Wojciech Szczesny on the floor after his header bounced back off the post.The equaliser seemed to inspire Lokomotiv and they could have taken the lead less than 10 minutes later.Miranchuk wasted a chance to double his tally after glancing his header over the crossbar from a chipped cross by Rifat Zhemaletdinov.Ronaldo troubled Guilherme from a set-piece once again three minutes into the second half, the Brazil-born Russia international nervously parrying away the long-range effort.Guilherme denied Ronaldo again nine minutes later sending the Portugal attacker’s powerful shot over the bar with an impressive save.Ronaldo was substituted off for Paulo Dybala on 82 minutes with Sarri keeping an eye on Sunday’s Serie A game against AC Milan, despite the former Real Madrid forward’s frustration at the decision.Juve dominated the final moments and Costa clinched their sixth straight last 16 appearance with a tidy side-footed finish in injury time for his first Bianconeri goal since January.Share on: WhatsApp PHOTO via @juventusfcenMoscow, Russia | AFP | Substitute Douglas Costa’s injury-time winner secured Juventus their spot in the Champions League last 16 on Wednesday after a 2-1 victory over Lokomotiv Moscow.The Brazilian winger struck a magnificent, last-gasp solo goal for the Italian champions after Aleksei Miranchuk had cancelled out Aaron Ramsey’s fourth-minute opener.Juve are three points clear of Atletico Madrid at the top of Group D ahead of the Spanish side’s game at Bayer Leverkusen, who will likely battle Lokomotiv for a Europa League place.“We have achieved the first objective of the season. Lokomotiv were defending low but counter-attacked well in the first half,” Juve captain Leonardo Bonucci said.“We created a few chances and finally managed to earn the victory,” he added.Juve’s Maurizio Sarri substituted an angry Cristiano Ronaldo during the final 10 minutes due to knee and thigh problems.“I replaced him just because I feared he could aggravate his injury,” Sarri said.Lokomotiv coach Yuri Semin made one change from the weekend’s draw at Ufa as on-loan Inter Milan midfielder Joao Mario came in for Murilo Cerqueira.Sarri brought in seven new faces from Saturday’s Turin derby victory which included handing Wales midfielder Ramsey his first start for the club in the competition.Ramsey, whose appearances for his new side this season have been restricted by injury, opened the scoring early after Lokomotiv goalkeeper Guilherme fumbled Ronaldo’s free-kick.last_img read more

Job creation tops environmental agenda

first_img6 June 2012 Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa celebrated World Environment Day on Tuesday by announcing plans to create over 60 000 new jobs this year – and 300 000 new jobs by 2020 – with the focus on women, the youth and people with disabilities. “It is a programme that has exceptional returns on investment, and I want to emphasise that these jobs are vital for our long-term economic future,” she added. Working for Wetlands was founded in 2004 and has rehabilitated over 800 wetlands, creating 15 000 jobs for mostly marginalised rural communities. The project focuses on the rehabilitation, protection and sustainable use of South Africa’s 110 000 wetlands. Molewa attended the annual World Environment Day celebrations in Mangaung, Bloemfontein and spoke about the department’s plans to step up environmental protection and preservation efforts. “We as South Africa are part of the global campaign to promote sustainable development and also are proponents of the global drive towards a green economy,” Molewa said. Job creation is an integral part of South Africa’s efforts to join the global drive towards sustainable development. “This year the department, through the entire suite of programmes within our environmental programmes branch, aims to create job opportunities for about 62 860,” she said. “We also aim to ensure that 55% of beneficiaries from our programmes are women, 40% are youth and 2% are people with disabilities.”Environmental protection programmes These targets will be achieved through the department’s programmes and sub- programmes. Working for Water, Working for Wetlands and Working on Fire are the department’s biggest and most successful initiatives so far, but the sub-programmes of the environmental protection and infrastructure programmes were heralded as growing contributors to sustainable development and job protection. These are made up of Working on Waste, Working for the Coast, People and Parks, and Sustainable Land Based Livelihood. “We are a country endowed with a rich and diverse biodiversity that enables thousands of jobs in different sectors,” she said. “Our diverse biodiversity is our competitive edge in growing our economy while at the same time addressing climate change and we are doing that through our environment programmes.” Working for Water is particularly successful: it was established in 1995 and has over the years created 397 146 work opportunities. It aims to combat the impact of alien invasive species on our water security, diversity, use of land, wild fires and erosion. It is through these partnerships and the government’s joining of the Green Economy Accord – dubbed as one of the most comprehensive social pacts on green jobs in the world – that the department plans to create 300 000 new jobs by 2020. Working towards this will provide exciting new opportunities for the country’s youth and Molewa urged all young South Africans to get involved. “Tomorrow belongs to those who prepare themselves today.” SAinfo reporter “Working on Fire also recruits from disadvantaged backgrounds and offers work opportunities to 4 800 fire fighters in 107 bases around South Africa in 2011/12 alone,” Molewa said.Working for the future Working on Waste looks at waste collection, disposal and recycling initiatives. “In this regard we provide support to the municipalities in terms of handling of waste and this includes assistance in the construction of landfill sites and buy-back centres where appropriate.” Working for the Coast programmes deal with cleaning and rehabilitating coastal environmental assets and infrastructure; People and Parks projects support the development of infrastructure in and around protected areas; and Sustainable Land Based Livelihood focuses on projects which encourage restoration, rehabilitation and re-vegetation of degraded areas. The bigger picture enjoyed the same success. According to Molewa, 26 896 jobs were created overall by the environmental protection and infrastructure programmes in 2011/12. It is full steam ahead for the department going forward, and the injection of R800- million over the next two years from the National Treasury’s Green Fund will assist its green economy implementation plan. “We will utilise this funding in a manner that seeks to attract new and additional investment, stimulate job creation and lay the foundations for South Africa’s transition to a low carbon, job-creating and resource-efficient growth path,” she explained. “We are extending partnerships to key international funding institutions such as the World Bank Clean Technology Fund and the newly established Green Climate Fund.” A total of 2 788 jobs were created in the implementation of these sub-projects. “All the employed people have been trained on various skills programmes ranging from bricklaying in the construction sector to waste management in the environmental sector,” she said. “Although we can still do more and we certainly will, we are delighted with this achievement because it debunks the myth that environment management hinders development. When you work for the environment, the environment will work for you.”last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Nicol urges calm around Chelsea outcast Pulisicby Paul Vegas24 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool legend Steve Nicol says Christian Pulisic will come good at Chelsea.Chelsea fans have been pleading with Frank Lampard to give Pulisic more game time in the league, but the boss seems to prefer Pedro and Willian on either flank with Tammy Abraham in the middle.Regardless, Nicol explained on ESPN FC that Chelsea fans need to just give the youngster time, because he will get good in the end.“I think everyone should calm down,” he said.“He’s 21, he’s just started out on his Premier League career.“He’s what, six or seven games in? And everyone is jumping up and pressing the panic button.“This kid has ability, he also has something very important – a level head.“As much as everyone around him may be panicking, he understands that – because he’s been through it already at Dortmund.“He knows that patience is needed, and that through the ability he has, he’ll get there in the end.“I’m sure that right now he’s thinking – I’ve done it all before, I need to step up a level, but I can do this.” last_img read more

Video: Bill O’Reilly Asked Urban Meyer If He’d Have Cut Jameis Winston Following The Crab Legs Incident

(Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer made the rounds yesterday, appearing on The Dan Patrick Show, CBS, ESPN and Fox to promote his new book, titled “Above the Line.” Bill O’Reilly, host of The O’Reilly Factor, made sure to ask some interesting questions.O’Reilly, alluding to Meyer’s strict policies, asked the Buckeyes head man what he’d have done if Jameis Winston, who infamously stole crab legs from a Publix ahead of the 2014 season, had been on his team. He said he “would have had a hard time letting it go.”Of course, it’s always easy to say what you’d have done when you aren’t in the exact situation. That being said, Meyer probably runs a tighter ship now than he did in the past.last_img read more

In the news today Sept 10

first_imgFive stories in the news for Tuesday, Sept. 10———NEW WEB TOOL AIMS TO HELP FIND MISSING KIDSThousands of children are reported missing across the country each year but only a handful of Amber Alerts are issued, potentially leaving large numbers of people who might be able to help find them in the dark. Now, a new website that aims to reach far more people than is currently the case — especially those who might be close to where the child went missing — is launching today. Based on information provided by police, Missing Children’s Society of Canada’s Rescu website allows users to view all active cases by geographic region. Names, photographs and other relevant data about a missing child is available at the click of a mouse. Users who might have useful information can provide tips by clicking on the name or picture of the child.———HOSPITAL TESTING YOUTH SUICIDE PREVENTION PROGRAMRising youth suicide rates have prompted doctors at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto to launch a clinical trial aimed at testing whether involving families in treatment could prevent deaths across the country. The six-week program involves adolescents who showed up at the hospital’s emergency department before or after they attempted to take their own lives, and recruitment will continuing into next year. Child and adolescent psychiatrist Dr. Daphne Korczak says randomized trials aren’t as common for mental health problems, especially those involving children, but that’s the gold standard for trials testing medications, for example, and the team is aiming to come up with a standardized strategy.———MANITOBANS GO TO THE POLLS TODAYBrian Pallister is seeking a second mandate for his Progressive Conservatives in the Manitoba election today with a to-do list that includes further cost cuts and reduced taxes. Pallister won 40 of 57 seats, the largest majority government in Manitoba in a century, in 2016 after the former NDP government raised the provincial sales tax and angered voters. Pallister reversed the tax increase in July and launched the election campaign a month later, more than a year ahead of schedule. Opinion polls have consistently suggested a sizable lead for the Tories provincewide, but a tight race with the NDP in Winnipeg, where most of the seats are. The New Democrats have focused on Pallister’s health-care reforms throughout the four-week campaign and have promised to reverse some of the changes.———FEDERAL TORIES READY TO LAUNCH LEADER’S TOURThe Conservative campaign machine revs up in earnest this week, with two events scheduled tomorrow in places where the party aims to increase its support come the Oct. 21 vote. Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer will fuel up the tank on his campaign bus for a first stop in Trois-Rivieres, Que., one of several Quebec ridings into which the party has been pouring resources to win seats it’s never held in its modern incarnation. From there, Scheer is to move on to the Toronto area, specifically the riding of Vaughan-Woodbridge, newly created for the 2015 election and won by the Liberals. The geographical area, however, had previously been represented by Conservative and former top Toronto cop Julian Fantino. All three federal parties have been in campaign mode for weeks, despite the fact an election has yet to be officially called.———DOCUMENTARY LOOKS AT MEDICAL CARE FOR INDIGENOUS KIDSAlanis Obomsawin releases her 53rd film at the Toronto International Film Festival today. Her film, “Jordan River Anderson, The Messenger,” examines the legacy of a boy from Norway House Cree Nation who was born with a rare muscle disorder. Jordan spent the five years of his life in a Winnipeg hospital because the federal and provincial governments could not agree who should pay for his transfer to home-based care. The case inspired a 2007 law known as Jordan’s Principle, which was supposed to guarantee equal access to health care and services but was continually ignored in ensuing years. The film will also screen at the FIN Atlantic International Film Festival in Halifax, the Calgary International Film Festival, and Vancouver International Film Festival, with more festivals to come.———ALSO IN THE NEWS:— Trial continues today for David Petersen after he pleaded not guilty on a charge of uttering threats against Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Parliament.— Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. will release its preliminary housing start data for August.— A public inquest will be held today into the death of Ryan Donard. RCMP said Donard was running from officers when he went into the Fond du Lac River. His body was later found in the water.— Finance Minister Carole James will provide an update today on B.C.’s fiscal outlook. The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Nunavik gets help to offset high cost of living

first_imgTom FennarioAPTN NewsInuit in Quebec are getting a taste from the province’s $2.5 billion surplus to help keep the cost of living down.The province announced that $115.8 million over six years will be spent to aid the fifteen communities in in Nunavik, located in subarctic Quebec above the 55th parallel.The Agreement on the Financing of Measures to Reduce the Cost of Living in Nunavik itself is not new, but rather a renewal.It is however almost double that of the $33 million over three years of the last agreement.“This is a good example of how the Inuit Territory of Nunavik and the Quebec government can work together to make life in the north affordable,” said Charlie Watt, president of Makivik Corporation, the organization that represents Nunavik Inuit in negotiations with Quebec and Canada.“We have to do a lot more to make life in the great north more equitable with the rest of Quebec.”Much of the money will focus on making hunting more affordable, and in order to encourage a healthier lifestyle, to help Inuit offset grocery costs with country food.“This is really good. It lowers the cost of so many items in stores and even gas prices,” said William Tagoona, communications director for Makivik in an email to APTN News.“Last count the money lowered the cost of about 5,000 items, including food Nutrition North will not cover such as KLIK, hunting clothing such as snow boots, diapers, and snowmobile oil.”Tagoona also adds that often Inuit in Nunavik are forced to choose between paying the rent or buying groceries.According to a study conducted by Laval University, the cost of living is nearly 30 per cent higher in Nunavik.A major reason for this is the remoteness of the region.“Nunavik lies completely outside the major food or commercial distribution networks. The absence of roads and the harsh climate considerably increase the cost of goods and services, which greatly increases the burden that Nunavik families bear,” said Quebec Minister of Indigenous Affairs Sylvie D’Amours in a press release.“The government’s financial assistance is thus essential to maintain and improve living conditions in Nunavik.”In the same press release, Jennifer Munick, president of the Kativik Regional government, the body responsible for providing services on the territory, succinctly described what Thursday’s announcement means to Nunavik.“This program is critical to the well-being of Nunavummiut [Inuit in Nunavik], where many don’t get enough to eat.”[email protected]@tfennariolast_img read more

Auto dealership jobs not on the radar of millennials says survey

first_imgMONTREAL – Canadian automobile dealers are launching a national recruiting campaign next month after a poll suggested that millennials aren’t keen to pursue careers in a sector that has seen vehicle sales reach a record high.“There’s a lot of young Canadians…(for whom) it’s not even on their radar,” said Catherine Fortin Lefaivre, a spokeswoman for the Canadian Automobile Dealers Association.She said research and anecdotal evidence suggests there’s a perception that auto dealerships is mainly about sales and parts.“The car dealership of 2018 is one that requires a lot more business people, a lot more marketing people, people with a background in innovation increasingly as the way cars are built is changing,” she said in an interview.Opportunities are also available in finance, IT and management roles at more than 3,200 car and truck dealerships across the country that employ 150,000 people.An Abacus Data survey released during the Montreal International Auto Show found that working in an auto dealership isn’t on the radar for 68 per cent of people aged 18 to 37.One quarter of the people surveyed said they have considered working in various capacities in an auto dealership, while seven per cent said they have worked in a dealership.Men were more interested in such careers than women.In addition to millennials, the association plans to target women, immigrants and veterans over the next three years.Light vehicle sales exceeded two million for the first time last year, pushing revenues to above $120 billion. Strong sales are expected to continue.The online survey of 2,000 millennials was conducted Dec. 22 to Jan. 8. The margin of error for a comparable probability-based random sample of the same size is considered accurate plus or minus 2.6 per cent, 19 times out of 20.The polling industry’s professional body, the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association, says online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error because they do not randomly sample the population.Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter.last_img read more
