#deepweb | Dark Side Rey & Red-Eyed C-3PO Get The Rise of Skywalker Funko! Pop Figures

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Dark Rey is getting her own Funko Pop! figure ahead of The Rise of Skywalker hitting theaters. Dark Rey was first introduced to the world in the D23 Expo footage that was released this summer. The character is very much a mystery, and the same can be said about C-3PO and his glowing red eyes, who is also getting his own Funko Pop! figure. These guys might come with some spoilers from The Rise of Skywalker, so they won’t be available until July 2020.

In addition to Dark Rey and red eyed C-3PO, The Rise of Skywalker Funko Pop! line is introducing us to the Knights of Ren. These guys look pretty awesome and are made from hematite chrome. All six of the figures have their distinctive weapons, which is how they are identified. There is club, blaster, scythe, axe, cannon, and blade. There are also two Kylo Rens, one of which is glow in the dark, along with D-O and BB-8. These guys will all be available in January 2020 and are currently up for pre-order. Exclusive mini figures from the upcoming movie are up for pre-sale too.

If that wasn’t enough, there are a few variants that will be exclusive to certain shops. A Pop! Knight of Ren (Club) is available exclusively at Hot Topic. Pop! Knight of Ren (Cannon) is available exclusively at Walmart. Pop! Knight of Ren (Blade) is available exclusively at FYE, Pop! Knight of Ren (Blaster) is available exclusively at GameStop, a two-pack Pop! D-O and BB-8 is available exclusively at Books-A-Million and a Pop! two-pack Kylo Ren and Rey is available exclusively at Barnes and Noble. The Knights of Ren special editions do not appear to be made from the hematite chrome.

There has been a lot of speculation about Dark Rey and how she fits into The Rise of Skywalker. While some believe she could be an evil clone made by Emperor Palpatine, there is another theory that brings things back to The Empire Strikes Back. When the D23 Expo footage dropped, Star Wars fans went into full speculation mode, but one of the most common theories is that Rey is looking at an evil version of herself in a cave, like Luke Skywalker on Dagobah. The Dark Side Cave “challenges the perceptions of anyone who enters into its depths. Drawing visitors in, they often experience visions of the past, future, or possible futures.”

The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20th and there is still a lot of mystery surrounding the movie, which is a good thing. Star Wars fans have been trying to figure out how J.J. Abrams will wrap up the Skywalker Saga for nearly two years now. Thankfully, the wait is nearly over. There will certainly be a lot more toy reveals in the weeks to come, so be on the lookout for spoilers. You can check out The Rise of Skywalker Pop! figures over at Funko.

Ports to #spend more on #cybersecurity as #digital #investments rise

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

If there was one positive effect of the string of cyberattacks the world witnessed in 2017, it was that a clear message was sent: cybersecurity is no longer an option for supply chain professionals. In fact, it may even be up to those professionals to ensure cyber resilience.

Cyber risk is unlike any other digital threat previously left to the IT department, because it requires participation from every person, and every link in the value chain. Most companies today rely on third-party SaaS providers for pivotal business functions, and these maintain valuable and proprietary data. If this indirect supplier, however, is not secure — neither is the buyer.

The most recent disruption from a cyberattack sheds valuable insight upon the importance of security to ports. A.P. Moller – Maersk’s systems were attacked in June, costing the company up to $300 million and completely shutting down the carrier’s fully automated port terminal in Rotterdam. That same attack also targeted FedEx, which suffered days of disruptions to its TNT Express network, impacting European supply chains.

Previously, carrier and port provider choices were made mainly on cost or lead time advantages. But, when considering various service providers, procurement professionals also consider risk. Labor disruptions have led shippers to reconsider their options in the past, will cyberattacks do the same?

Cyber security firm FireEye posts surprise rise in revenue

Cyber security firm FireEye posts surprise rise in revenue

Cyber security firm FireEye Inc reported a surprise 3.4 percent rise in quarterly revenue, helped by strength in its product subscription and services business.

FireEye’s shares jumped 13.8 percent to $13.90 after the bell on Tuesday.

The company’s billings, a closely watched indicator of future business, fell 18 percent to $152.4 million in the first quarter, compared with a fall of 14 percent in the previous quarter.

However, billings in the latest quarter beat analysts’ estimates of $142.5 million, according to financial data and analytics firm FactSet.

FireEye expects billings of $173 million-$179 million in the second quarter, above analysts’ estimate of $170.9 million.

The company is amid a transition to a software-as-a-service model (SaaS) from its traditional business that centered around the sale of hardware boxes.

“The revenue level looks like it could be stabilizing, you’re probably seeing a change in complexion of the revenue towards more subscription and services,” Wedbush Securities analyst Steve Koenig said.

FireEye remains confident of renewed growth in the second half of 2017, helped by the introduction of products such as the Helix platform, which combines network processing and analytics with endpoint analytics.

“We fully expect in the fourth quarter that we’re going to be non-GAAP profitable, and then you would expect that to be the case from 2018 on,” FireEye Chief Financial Officer Frank Verdecanna said in an interview on Tuesday.

The Milpitas, California-based company also forecast revenue of $173 million to $179 million for the current quarter. Analysts on average were expecting revenue of $173.31 million, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

FireEye, which provides web, email and malware security to businesses and governments, said its revenue rose to $173.7 million in the quarter ended March 31, from $168 million in the year-earlier period.

Analysts on average had expected revenue to fall about 2.6 percent to $163.7 million.

Net loss attributable to the company’s shareholders narrowed to $83 million, or 48 cents per share, from $155.9 million, or 98 cents per share.

Excluding items, FireEye reported a loss of 9 cents per share. Analysts were expecting a loss of 26 cents.

Through Tuesday’s close, the stock had risen 2.6 percent, underperforming the 10.8 percent gain in the broader Nasdaq Composite index.
