Water, Electricity & Gas most likely to suffer a cyber attack

In light of Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month and with the threat of a cyber attack against Critical National Infrastructures (CNI) growing, Tripwire, a leading global provider of security and compliance solutions for enterprises and industrial organisations, conducted a poll to learn what services the public thought would be most likely to have an outage as a result of a cyber attack. The majority of respondents (47%) believed that water, electricity & gas utilities were the most likely CNI to be disabled due to a successful hack. Twenty-two (22) percent felt that transport would be the most susceptible to a power blackout following a cyber attack, whereas 20% voted that the emergency services would be the main organisations to suffer. A further 12% answered with other suggestions, with many suggesting that an attack on Telcos and communication systems would cause the most disruption to their country.

2017/18 AY Grand Prix Event

Wind glorious wind on Leg 2, changes the standings…
By AsianYachting MultiMedia
21st Nov 2017: For the first time in many years, the predicted North Westerly blew throughout the night and into race day, so the fleet were blessed when the 1300 start time came around, with 10 to 13 knots and the line set to the west of the passage between Pangkor and Pangkor Laut. As the course was straight into the wind, the first part required, either tacking out to sea or along the coast of Pangkor and making their way towards the mainland. Slightly veering and increasing as they approached the Kra Bank, enabled the yachts to harden up and aim closer towards the finish line. After IRC 1 and Premier Cruisers finished, the NW’ly started to fade in the lee of Penang and the yachts that were looking good for handicap honours, slowed down to a crawl and watched their chances wash away in the strong current.
