#comptia | Ikea and Teenage Engineering launch co-developed speakers and party products

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Two and a half years after Ikea first announced its collaboration with Swedish design collective Teenage Engineering, the products are going on sale. The Frekvens range (which translates to “frequency”) will be rolling out in US stores from today through February 1st, according to Ikea.

Teenage Engineering is best known for its music products like the iconic OP-1 synthesizer, so it’s no surprise that the Frekvens collection sees Ikea continue its expansion into the world of home audio. There are two speakers in the range, a $69.99 model and a more portable $19.99 option with a belt clip, along with a $149 subwoofer combo and a $10 light-up speaker base.

“The Items got narrowed down towards sound,” Teenage Engineering founder Jesper Kouthoofd says. “What we said was ‘why do you have to hide speakers. They are furniture in their own right.’ Sounds should not be hidden. So when you start to build a modular system and add fronts and accessories on, it’s a more fun way to think about sound.”

It’s just not a party until someone pours a martini on a table tennis racquet on the floor.

The rest of the range includes more traditional Ikea products and is designed to help you host a stylishly minimalist home party. There are various lights, furniture, crockery, and other somewhat incongruous items like a cajón and a reflective raincoat. Many of the lights and speakers are able to be connected together.

“We know that for younger people spontinuity is key,” Ikea creative design leader Michael Nikolic says. “The idea of gathering some friends could become a reality in minutes. What is needed to have a good party at home? That’s what we wanted to investigate with Frekvens. Together with Teenage Engineering, we have explored the possibilities of taking the party with us.”

Here are some selected items from the collection:

Speaker with subwoofer, $149

Portable speaker, $19.99

Cups, $9.99 for four

Side table, $29.99

Eating set, $17.99

Cajón drum, $29.99

LED multi-use light, $40

Blanket, $49.99

Raincoat, $24.99

International Workshop on Secure Software Engineering in DevOps and Agile Development (SecSE)

General Cybersecurity Conference

 May 25, 2018 | Porto, Portugal

Cybersecurity Conference Description

Software security is about protecting information and ensuring that systems continue to function correctly even when under malicious attack. The traditional approach of securing a system has been to create defensive walls such as intrusion detection systems and firewalls around it, but there are always cracks in these walls, and thus such measures are no longer sufficient by themselves. We need to be able to build better, more robust and more “inherently secure” systems, and we should strive to achieve these qualities in all software systems, not just in the ones that “obviously” need special protection.

This workshop will focus on techniques, experiences and lessons learned for engineering secure and dependable software using the DevOps paradigm, as well as other forms of agile development.

Hackers could kill #patients by #attacking their #pacemakers, warns #Royal Academy of Engineering

Hackers could kill patients by attacking their pacemakers or heart pumps, the Royal Academy of Engineering has warned.

In a new report, security experts warned that health tech is vulnerable to cyberattacks which could have ‘severe consequences’ for patient safety.

The RAENG warned that the number of the number of healthcare devices which are susceptible to hacking is growing which not only poses a threat to individuals, but also provides a way to gain access to entire networks.

The experts cautioned that pacemakers or wearable health monitors which are linked up to the internet or internal computer networks could also provide a gateway for hackers to plant ransomware into systems, potentially crippling in the NHS or government departments.

Some US hospitals have already been infected by the Wannacry and Medjack computer viruses after hackers targeted medical devices which were not protected.

Professor Nick Jennings, a fellow of the RAENG and Vice Provost at Imperial College London said: “There is genuine harm that can be done through poor cyber security on medical devices, on future-connected homes, on autonomous vehicles, and if they are not dealt with then that will lead to harms and deaths.

Engineering #needs #cyber security #specialists to #beat the #threat

Awareness and concern over security against cyber threats is growing. It’s about much more than the risk of personal data being hacked into.

A hostile cyber attack is classed by the UK’s National Security Risk Assessment as a Tier 1 risk, putting it in the most serious category alongside international terrorism, an international military crisis and a major accident or natural hazard. The National Cyber Security Centre was set up in 2016 (as a branch of GCHQ), and later the same year the government confirmed a cyberstrategy budget of £1.9bn over five years.

And although there have been high-profile examples of cyber security breaches, including the ‘Wannacry’ ransomware attack on the NHS last year, the centre’s head Ciaran Martin recently said that the UK had been fortunate so far to avoid a so-called ‘category 1’ attack – an assault that could cripple critical infrastructure such as water or electricity supplies or financial services. He warned that it was a matter of “when, not if” such an attack occurred.

There is little wonder, then, that demand for cyber security specialists has grown dramatically in the past few years, as has demand for the services of companies seeking to hire their expertise.
