Security Researchers are giving exposed Amazon cloud storage users warning alerts

It has been revealed that security researchers having been giving exposed Amazon storage users warnings that their private content maybe public. The messages urge owners to secure their information before it can be stolen by hackers. There have been a number of AWS data breaches in the past year with misconfigured settings being blamed as the root cause.

Full Story Here:


In light of this news, Javvad Malik, security advocate at AlienVault said the following:


“When it comes to using cloud services, there is a shared responsibility model whereas while the cloud provider will assume responsibility and security for the host operating system, down to physical security, the customer is responsible for other aspects.


Customers cannot simply outsource complete security responsibility to a cloud provider and need to ensure configurations are correct, as well as monitoring their cloud environments for threats and attacks.”

AI in telecoms and securing the ‘Augmented Human’

Today product design and development firm Cambridge Consultants launches a new report, stating that the telecommunications sector will be vital for securing Artificial Intelligence (AI) infrastructure, and therefore crucial in enabling future digital control systems such as the Augmented Human.


A critical enabler for AI in telecommunications so far has been the huge volume of data that it routinely generates, harvests and stores. Many sectors are still very analogue, but the digital nature of telecommunications means that the scale and scope of data available gives the maximum opportunity for machines to continuously learn and improve – laying the perfect infrastructure for mass AI to take off.

The paper, titled AI: understanding and harnessing the potential lays out the 5 key missing ingredients to the responsible governance of AI:

  • Responsibility: There needs to be a specific person responsible for the effects of an autonomous system’s behaviour. This is not just for legal redress but also for providing feedback, monitoring outcomes and implementing changes
  • Explainability: It needs to be possible to explain to people impacted (often laypeople) why the behaviour is what it is. This is vital for trust
  • Accuracy: Sources of error need to be identified, monitored, evaluated and if appropriate mitigated against or removed
  • Transparency: It needs to be possible to test, review (publicly or privately), criticise and challenge the outcomes produced by an autonomous system. The results of audits and evaluation should be available publicly and explained
  • Fairness: The way in which data is used should be reasonable and respect privacy. This will help remove biases and prevent other problematic behaviour becoming embedded


The report goes live ahead of Mobile World Congress where Cambridge Consultants will be exhibiting in Hall 7, stand 7B21 experience a demo of “Vincent,” a breakthrough in machine learning that is capable of completing a drawing that has been started with a human sketch.


Mid February AYGP News – Changes in the wind

Goto Subic Verde Race & CupDespite last minute air ticket and accommodation cancellations, most the original entries have adapted to the change and good to see International teams launching into the inaugural one design FarEast 28 class. This new event will replace Boracay as the 2017-18 Asian Yachting Grand Prix point scoring event this season.

Goto AYGP Skipper RankingsAlso cracking a smile on the dial, is Chris Mitchell and his Naut 40 Lady Bubbly, after winning 5 of the 6 races at the Neptune Regatta, have extended their lead in the AYGP Skipper Rankings and take over the lead in the AYGP Yacht Rankings from Otonomos Mandrake III by 7 points. It has taken 5 regattas to accumulate 52 points and as they aren’t planning on contesting any more events, set the benchmark for the others to beat.

Presently holding onto 2nd place, John Newnham has competed with distinction on two events and the uncertainty of 3rd placed Ray Roberts racing plans, are capable of overhauling Chris Mitchell if they contest some of the remaining five point scoring events.

Goto AYGP Yacht RankingsBy participating on the Subic Bay Around Verde Is Race & Subic Cup, Fred Kinmonth, Geoff Hill and Ernesto Echauz all have a chance to leave their mark and close in on the leaders.

Goto AYGP Skipper RankingsAt this point in the 2017-18 Season, 281 Skippers and 270 Yachts have scored points by contesting at least one of the 8 point scoring events already held, that make up the family of 13 AYGP five star regattas/races each season.

Racing now moves over to the Philippines for the Subic Bay Around Verde Is Race & Subic Cup (Feb 23rd – March 2nd) and back to Hong Kong for the Rolex China Sea blue water classic, which is quickly followed by the Commodores’ Cup (April 3rd – 7th) in Subic Bay, to complete the Eastern Circuit.
