William H. Macy And Stephen Colbert Call A Family Meeting For America

Actor William H. Macy had a heart-to-heart with the nation on Friday.

The “Shameless” star joined “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert for a “family meeting” with America, in which the two dads talked about pretty much everything from porn, puberty, taking drugs, Thanksgiving fireworks, where babies come from and drinking alcohol.

Their most crucial piece of advice came toward the end of the skit, however, alongside a thinly veiled dig at President-elect Read More

How Corporate America keeps huge hacks secret

How Corporate America keeps huge hacks secret

But the biggest cyberattacks, the ones that can blow up chemical tanks and burst dams, are kept secret by a law that shields U.S. corporations. They’re kept in the dark forever. You could live near — or work at — a major facility that has been hacked repeatedly andINVESTIGATED by the federal government. But you’d never know. What’s more, that secrecy could hurt efforts to defend against future attacks. The murky information that is publicly available confirms that there is plenty to worry about. Unnamed energy utilities and suppliers often make simple mistakes — easily exposing the power grid to terrorist hackers and foreign spies. A CNNMoneyINVESTIGATIONhas reviewed public documents issued by regulators that reveal widespread flaws. There was thePOWER COMPANY that didn’t bother to turn off communication channels on its gear at mini-stations along the electrical grid, leaving access points completely open to hackers. It was fined $425,000 by its regulator in August. Another power company forgot to patch software on 66% of its devices, thus exposing them to known flaws exploited by hackers. It got a $70,000 fine in February. There are plenty of other examples, and all “posed a serious or substantial risk” to portions of the […]

Cyber leads risks for insurers in North America, Bermuda

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Cyber risk is the top risk faced by insurers in North America and Bermuda, according to a survey released Wednesday by London-based think tank Centre for the Study of Financial Innovation. The survey, “Insurance Banana Skins: The CSFI Survey of Risks Facing Insurers,” found that among all global insurers surveyed, regulation ranked first among risks, followed by the macroeconomy and interest rates, with cyber ranking fourth. But for North America and Bermuda insurers, cyber risks, regulation and interest rates topped the list. Cyber is a new risk, having not appeared on the center’s previous “Insurance Banana Skins” survey published in 2013. “The most striking new theme to emerge from this survey is the high level of anxiety about cyber risk, specifically software failure and data security breaches,” said the report. “The chief concern is the security of the ever-growing volumes of data that insurers hold in cloud-based storage systems,” said the report. “For many, major breaches are inevitable; the question is how much damage they will cause.” “Cyber risk is the No. 1 banana skin for participants from nonlife businesses, as well as being high up the list for reinsurers and life insurers,” PricewaterhouseCoopers L.L.P., which sponsored the report, wrote […]

Berko: Bank gives America a bad name

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Dear Mr. Berko: About five years ago, you recommended Bank of America when it was trading between $6 and $8 a share. I came very close to buying 200 shares for my individual retirement account but chickened out because I was concerned it would declare bankruptcy. I am thinking of buying 150 shares today and would like your opinion. — M.C., Oklahoma City Dear M.C.: Don’t buy it! I have never, ever recommended Bank of America (BAC-$16.12) stock. That’s because I don’t trust its legal representation, its business model, its accounting or its management. And I certainly don’t trust the 15 people with sinecures on BAC’s vaporous board of directors, each of whom receives a $25,000 monthly check from BAC, lavish per diem pay and a generous bounty from numerous other corporate boards. I did recommend Bank of America’s 7.25 percent noncumulative perpetual convertible preferred stock (BAC.PRL-$1,173) on several occasions in 2009 and 2010, when it traded between the high $600s and the low $700s. I recommended this convertible preferred because I believed that BAC was too big to fail, I thought management was too connected to go to prison and the current yield was in excess of 10 percent.

Should America Have a Public Child-Abuse Registry?

Erica Hammel’s two-year-old child Wyatt was shaken so badly that he got brain damage.

Her ex-husband’s then girlfriend allegedly did the awful deed a year ago, leaving the kid temporarily blinded and unable to speak. The accused, Rachel Edwards, had two previous child abuse charges, but had only gotten probation. Now Hammel wants to prevent anyone else from experiencing this horror by establishing a public database for child abusers.

Michigan, where Hammel lives, actually already has a child abuse database that contains about 275,000 names, but it’s only accessible to law enforcement and child protective services. Hammel wants to make that database public, like sex offender registries.
