ZTE and China Mobile complete interoperability test of G-SRv6 optimisation solution

... Partnering with China Mobile, ZTE has participated in establishing the national standards, and preparing the international standards for the SRv6 optimisation solution, which has been highly recognised by the industry. Moreover, the IETF has set up an SRv6 optimisation design group, in which ZTE serves as an important member to further develop the standards.

The COVID-19 Pandemic and Other Issues Are Stressing Corporate Cyber-Risk Management

Risks of virtually all types have exploded in 2020, courtesy of the COVID-19 pandemic and the brutal recession accompanying it, and—yes—the list absolutely includes substantially heightened uncertainty in the corporate cybersecurity landscape.

Q2 DDoS Attacks Triple Year Over Year: Report

The number of DDoS attacks in the second quarter of 2020 was three times higher than the amount recorded in the same quarter of 2019, and only slightly lower than DDoS attacks in the first quarter. This is unusual, researchers say, as they usually see DDoS start to decline by now.

Cybersecurity Skills Gap Worsens, Fueled by Lack of Career Development

Much has been made of the cybersecurity skills shortage: It has long been an issue that many companies can’t effectively source the in-house talent they need, even as threats accelerate in both volume and sophistication. A recent survey however shows that the situation doesn’t appear to be improving.

Zoom may have another major security worry

Earlier this year Zoom found itself in hot water over claims that its video conferencing service uses end-to-end encryption when it instead employs transport encryption instead. ... Back in April, The Intercept released a report which revealed that Zoom uses transport encryption as opposed to end-to-end encryption. Transport encryption is a Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol which secures the connection between a user and the server they are connected to. However, the main difference between transport encryption and end-to-end encryption is that while others won't be able to access your data, Zoom will still be able to.

Democratizing Innovation

Policymakers and the public at large understand the importance of innovation to economic growth and well being. What is less well appreciated is the degree to which the innovation agenda has been captured by narrow groups of investors and firms whose values and interests don’t necessarily reflect society’s needs.
